  • GH: Best Dad Advice: 10 Life and Business Lessons from Dad

    17/06/2024 Duración: 23min

    In honor of father’s day, I wanted to share some of the best advice I’ve received from my dad over the years, and how we can all work to apply it in life and in business. For the sake of background, dad is a chemical engineer — he spent decades of his career at one company — but still had lots of entrepreneurial experiences and insights along the way. (He did do a bit of consulting in retirement!) The funny thing is almost all of these were very literal conversations, which I’ve extrapolated out (30 years later!) to have a broader meaning. And as I think about the kind of advice I want to be passing along to my own kids, I think these kinds of concrete illustrations may be a really effective way to do it. Especially if they turn out to be the over-analyzing types like me! Full Show Notes: Best Dad Advice: 10 Life and Business Lessons from Dad New to the Show?

  • GH: Should I Start a Freelance Business or Build an Agency? Side Hustle Showdown

    06/06/2024 Duración: 01h49s

    A service business is one of the fastest side hustles to get off the ground, and you can scale it by hiring other people to deliver the work. But is there an advantage to staying a solo operator? In this Side Hustle Showdown, we're looking at freelancing vs. building an agency. For this debate, I invited a couple members of The Side Hustle Nation community who both run cleaning companies: Chris Schwab from ThinkMaids.com represented the agency side. We last heard from Chris in episode 294, where he talked about how he’d built his cleaning business to $60k a month in revenue, and scaled back his own involvement to just 10 minutes a day. Ken Carfango from SmartCleaningSchool.com represented the solo freelance side. Ken’s a former engineer and a father of 5 who’s got his cleaning business dialed in where he can knock out the work himself in just a couple days, and enjoy 5-day weekends with his family. Tune in to hear both Chris and Ken discuss which business model is best for: Getting started Finding new

  • 612: 10 Ways to Make Your Side Hustle Feel “Real”

    03/06/2024 Duración: 19min

    Before we begin, I should note that the single BEST way to make your side hustle feel official is to get paid. As soon as you’ve got your side hustle idea, go sell something. Seriously. That first income — no matter how small — is an empowering moment. In fact, I did a whole episode describing how I got my first sale in 6 different businesses, and later another 25 members of Side Hustle Nation shared their story in this fun round-up episode. But I also understand that many people — myself include — often want some level of “establishment” before they feel comfortable saying they’re open for business. I opened my first LLC while I was still in college and really had no idea what I needed it for. But it felt good, and if I’m being honest, made me feel smart and important too. And later I got plenty of use out of it. And that’s what this post is about. Even though in the early days of your side hustle, you’re better off focusing on getting customers, sometimes you need a little foundation before you’re mentally

  • 611: The 6-Figure Video Game Mom

    30/05/2024 Duración: 55min

    You know those endless hours you've spent perfecting your Fortnite skills or learning how to defeat a Guardian in Zelda games? There is a chance those skills aren't just good for bragging rights or racking up likes on Twitch. In fact, it is possible to make money out of these games without being an online streamer. I'm talking about teaching video games online, and the demand for these is exploding. In this "Where Are They Now?" series, we have once again Devyn Ricks from missdevyn.com share how much her online gaming teaching business has grown over the last years since we talked in Episode 499. When Devyn and I connected a couple of years ago, she was making around $4,000/month. Today, her business has more than doubled, earning her the title of "six-figure video game mom." She has since expanded her team to 14 teachers. Tune in to Episode 611 of The Side Hustle Show to learn: mechanics of setting up classes on Outschool strategies Devyn used to market her classes how Devyn identified her profitable nich

  • 606: Side Hustle Stacking: How One Extra Income Stream Can Lead to More

    06/05/2024 Duración: 42min

    How can one income stream turn into a whole lot more? Simplify first, diversify second—that’s an idea I have always advocated on the show. The first step towards diversifying is to have something working. But how do you know it’s time to diversify? That is exactly what Bjork Ostrom (our previous guest from Ep 46) has done as he (and his wife Lindsay) masterfully “stacked” multiple online businesses that have developed out of their original food blog, Pinch of Yum. This 10-year-old blog has been a launchpad for Food Blogger Pro (a guide for aspiring food bloggers), Clariti (for optimizing your site's content), and the holding company, TinyBit. And this is the framework he uses to decide if an idea is worth pursuing. Full Show Notes: Side Hustle Stacking: How One Extra Income Stream Can Lead to More New to the Show?

  • GH: How to Start a Service Business to Replace Your Income, Step-by-Step

    02/05/2024 Duración: 47min

    Starting a service business on the side is one of the fastest ways to build extra income. It's flexible, low-overhead, and you can probably start with skills you already have. “I had a lot of drive underneath me," Abbey Ashley told me, about starting her service business back in 2013. "I was super pregnant and I hated my job so much,” Abbey started offering her services as a virtual assistant, and connected with her first clients at local networking events in Washington, DC. My the time her maternity leave was up--just a few short months--Abbey had booked enough work to not have to go back to that job she hated. On top of that, she only had to work 20 hours a week to do it, and could work from home. There are almost no barriers to entry to starting a freelance service business, and the startup costs are minimal. (All Abbey did was make business cards for networking.) In fact, it was a service business, a house painting business in my case, that was one of my first entrepreneurial adventures. Over time, Abbey

  • 605: Blogging in a Post-HCU World: The Savvy 7-Figure Online Business

    25/04/2024 Duración: 54min

    Google's Helpful Content Update (HCU) hit a lot of online businesses hard with its new update. Even well-established and authoritative websites experienced a significant drop in their rankings. That's why I went behind the scenes with Kelan Kline from The Savvy Couple, whose online blogging side hustle did well even after the update. Kelan built his online business up from making $50 in the first year to now seeing around 500k pageviews a month. That led to his online business making seven figures last year.

  • 603: What Side Hustles Can You Start if You Don't Have Any Skills?

    11/04/2024 Duración: 45min

    One of the most common questions I get is, "What if I don't have any skills? Can I still start a side hustle?" On the one hand, I totally get that feeling. If you're a teacher, tutoring might seem like an obvious side gig. If you're an accountant, you could freelance or start a bookkeeping business. But not everyone's skills neatly align with a natural side hustle. So what do you do if you don't think you have any marketable skills? Is there still a path to earning extra income on the side? Yes, there absolutely is! And that's what I'm breaking down in this post—your four options to start a profitable side hustle, even if you think you're skillless today.

    28/03/2024 Duración: 38min

    Austin Miller built a $1.2 million real estate portfolio at 31 years old -- for free. He's a side hustling real estate investor specializing in "creative" financing deals -- houses he can buy without using his own money. Austin is the author of Free Houses: How To Build Your Real Estate Investment Portfolio With No Money. His basic strategy is this: Find a killer deal on a house that needs some work.

  • 601: The $100k niche consulting business

    21/03/2024 Duración: 52min

    When you hear "college admissions essay consultant," you might imagine some dull, overly formal academic type. But Carter Osborne from carterosbornetutoring.com took a pretty unconventional path to dominating this niche business. When he started providing tutoring services on the side, he was just a "broke, desperate graduate student" in need of some extra money. Carter actually had no formal business training. His background was in political science and public administration—so not exactly the traditional entrepreneurial breeding grounds. Not exactly the traditional path for an entrepreneur, right? And yet, the untraditional route Carter took allowed him to build a unique $100k consulting business, with almost all the revenue coming in just half the year. While Carter's career path didn't seem logical as a tutor, he was about to discover an untapped market niche that was waiting to be explored.

    Liz Wilcox found herself at a crossroads. With a growing email list of beginners wanting to learn about email marketing, she knew she wanted to find a way to step away from client work within a couple of years. She had just signed a huge copywriting contract worth $20,000... her biggest one yet. But instead of excitement, all she felt was dread about the massive project she now had to take on. And as a single parent, she knew the importance of creating a business that would support her lifestyle and allow her to be present for her family. This is where the idea of "low cost = low responsibility" appealed to her, as it would allow her to serve her audience at LizWilcox.com while maintaining a manageable workload. So Liz had the idea to create her flagship offer The Email Marketing Membership - a set of done-for-you email newsletter templates that members could access for just $9 per month.
