This is post #17 from the 30 Day Personal Finance Challenge: Boost Your Financial Health with a Daily Tip!
Saving and simple living come naturally to me and I love writing about them! But they are only one side of the medal. You first need to generate enough income so you can funnel it into your savings and potential investments.
The Side Hustle School podcast
I am excited to introduce you to the Side Hustle School podcast by Chris Guillebeau. The podcast is for everyone who wants to create a new source of income without quitting their day job.
Side hustle is an income earning project you start using the skills you already have and without quitting your day job.
It’s about having more ownership over life, creating financial security and increasing your options. – Chris Guillebeau
Every episode is short (less than 10 minutes long), carefully thought-out, and action-packed. Every episode is a real story of someone who started a hustle. The podcast will be published every single day in 2017!
These are just some of the most bizarre hustles: writing fish tank reviews, a six-figure reselling hustle, saddles for pet chickens, Airbnb for dogs, cruise vacations website, pinning pictures on Pinterest, homemade gin kit selling 75,000 units, and it goes on, and on… You won’t believe all the possibilities out there!
It’s sooo empowering to have more than one source of income! – Chris Guillebeau
Chris is my new favourite internet person! During a lifetime of self-employment, he visited every country in the world (all 193 of them!) before his 35th birthday. He writes about cool things like round-the-world plane tickets, creating a self-education program instead of going to college and, people quitting their jobs and travelling the world.
My favourite quote from the show:
Inspiration is good, but inspiration with action is even better!
It’s time for action
Go ahead, subscribe to the show on iTunes and let me know in the comments section below if you have ever had a side hustle!
My personal KUDOS to Chris for undertaking a year-long daily project! Doing a 30 Day Challenge myself I know how much dedication and focus it requires. Looking forward to the upcoming episodes!
