  • 618: 7 Questions to Ask Before You Quit Your Job

    15/07/2024 Duração: 22min

    Are you ready to hand in your two week's notice and become your own boss? Not so fast. Quitting your job to pursue your business full-time is a dream for many side hustlers, but there are a few things you should have in place before you make the leap. When I was working in my corporate gig, I probably stuck around longer than I needed to because I'm a little more risk averse. I was out to dinner with my boss in Eureka, CA ... and it wasn't until my second beer I finally got up the nerve to tell him I was leaving. Since I'd been thinking about it for at least a year, it felt amazing to get that off my chest. But it wasn't a spur-of-the-moment decision or a triumphant flip-off-everyone-in-the-office-and-make-a-dramatic-exit. It was the result of 3 years of hustling nights and weeks to build my business (the now-defunct footwear comparison shopping site). Here are the most important questions to answer before you make the leap. Full Show Notes: 7 Questions to Ask Before You Quit Your Job New to the Show? Get yo

  • 617: Scaling to a 7-Figure Sale: Affiliate Marketing Beyond SEO

    11/07/2024 Duração: 56min

    It’s 2019, and we hear from a couple of guys on the Side Hustle Show about their part-time website. It’s about a year old, and they’re writing these in-depth product reviews and comparison posts, monetizing with affiliate partnerships, and doing around $20k a month. Fantastic results for a fairly new site. That site was finvsfin.com, and it recently sold just a few months ago for a 7-figure sum. Co-founder Alex Goldberg is here to catch us up on what’s working today in a volatile SEO landscape and how website owners can still position themselves for success while relying less and less on organic traffic. Tune in to Episode 617 of the Side Hustle Show to learn: the traffic source that saved Fin vs Fin during SEO volatility how to de-risk your business from organic traffic dependence the basics of ads arbitrage for your niche how to secure profitable partnerships for the latest about Alex's new project, check out Paid Media Affiliates.com Full Show Notes: Scaling to a 7-Figure Sale: Affiliate Marketing

  • GH: Hiring Your First Virtual Assistant: When, Where, and How to Do it Right

    04/07/2024 Duração: 01h01min

    We all have a limit to our capacity. For some entrepreneurs and small business owners, that’s a tough pill to swallow. But when you’re up against that ceiling you've got two options. You can: Settle in. Get help. This episode is about growing your team in such a way that you have some breathing room in your schedule and in your mental bandwidth to do the work that’s required of a business owner. Even though I’ve been hiring virtual help in my businesses since 2005, I’ve still got a lot to learn! This is something that’s been on my mind this year as I think about where I want my current operations to go and who can help get me there. To help dive into this topic, I’m excited to welcome John Jonas and Nate Hirsch to the show. Between them, they’ve got more than 60 virtual team members and have been practicing remote management for more than a decade. They both run platforms to help you make your first virtual hire as well: John heads up OnlineJobs.ph, the largest remote job board and resume database for wor

    01/07/2024 Duração: 25min

    In this episode, we're diving deep into the listener mailbag for a Q&A session. I'll tackle things like lifestyle creep, the role of luck, and inadvertently breaking a bunch of links. And hey, why does it seem like every podcast guest is selling an online course? Spoiler: there’s some truth to it, and we’ll dig into why that happens.

  • 615: Local Newsletters: $200k from 18k subscribers

    27/06/2024 Duração: 54min

    Local newsletter business opportunities have always caught my eye as a side hustle enthusiast. I'm constantly on the lookout for ventures that are low overhead, scalable, and sellable. Newsletter businesses, with examples like The Hustle and Morning Brew, tick all these boxes, selling for impressive 8-figure exits. But Ryan Sneddon from Naptown Scoop has taken a unique approach to the newsletter business, focusing on his local hometown, Annapolis, Maryland. He has become a pillar of the community along the way while making $200k a year from 18k subscribers. Tune in to Episode 615 of the Side Hustle Show to learn: how Ryan grew his subscriber base how he monetizes the business the logistics of putting out high quality newsletter five days a week Full Show Notes: Local Newsletters: $200k from 18k subscribers Your Listener Bonus: 50+ Newsletter Niches New to the Show?

  • 614: Scaling a Local Service Business: Multi 6-Figures in Pet Waste Removal

    20/06/2024 Duração: 55min

    It's not every day you spot one of your podcast guests' yard signs while driving, but that's exactly what happened to me. As we cruised the neighborhood, a bright pink "Kroopin's Poopin Scoopin" sign caught my eye. We first heard from this guest in 2020. She was earning around a thousand bucks a week from her part-time pooper scooper/pet waste removal business. And since then, it has grown to serve almost 200 weekly residential customers at an average ticket price of $99/month. In this 'Where Are They Now?' episode, I have once again Erica Krupin from Kroopin's Poopin Scoopin to talk about what this former side hustle looks like at scale.

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

    17/06/2024 Duração: 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?

  • 613: 14 Income Producing Assets

    13/06/2024 Duração: 43min

    Income producing assets are things you own (or control) that pay you every month, quarter, or year. In this post, I’ll share some of the best income producing assets you can build or acquire — starting on the side. These selections are based on: 15+ years building income-producing assets online 20+ years as an investor in income producing assets 500+ interviews with successful side hustlers You’ve probably heard the saying that it “takes money to make money,” but that’s not always true. Sure, starting with money will help, but you can also create income producing assets with a little sweat equity. Ready? Let’s do it! Full Show Notes: 14 Income Producing Assets New to the Show?

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

    06/06/2024 Duração: 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 Duração: 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 Duração: 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

  • 609: The Stadium Model of Entrepreneurship: How to think like a sports franchise to unlock more profit from your business

    20/05/2024 Duração: 36min

    What if we looked at our businesses like professional sports teams? That’s what Vincent Pugliese from Membership Freedom shared, drawing parallels between running a successful business and how sports franchises operate. Vincent helps people build successful membership sites and communities around topics they care about. He previously shared his freelance-to-freedom story of going from making $30k a year to earning $30k in a single day through freelancing. In this episode, Vincent explains the "Stadium Model of Entrepreneurship." This model draws inspiration from how sports franchises operate, offering various levels of access and products to their audience.

    16/05/2024 Duração: 54min

    Billboards are timeless. And they remain a successful advertising strategy even with the rise of digital technology. With that said, you probably never imagined that a solopreneur could rake in $30,000 a month from it (part-time!). But that’s exactly what Chris Brown from Signs of Good and wantmore.org has done for the past decade. Chris retired early at the age of 42 and now owns approximately 30 billboards around Bentonville, Arkansas.

    Do you want to get rich? To build real, lasting wealth that can change your family's circumstances for generations?

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

    06/05/2024 Duração: 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 Duração: 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 Duração: 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. Tune in to Episode 605 of the Side Hustle Show to learn: Strategies for creating content that resonates with Google's algorithm changes Ways to diversify traffic sources beyond just Google search Tools/tech for content creation, email marketing, monetization, and more.

Corey Ganim of coreyganim.com did just that, banking $3.2 million in sales by selling other people's products on the e-commerce giant's platform. And he didn't have to deal with the massive upfront costs and headaches of manufacturing his own products. Corey got started in early 2019 and went full-time with his unique wholesale business model by mid-2020. He's since built a multi-million-dollar business buying brand-name inventory at wholesale prices and reselling it on Amazon at a profit.

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

    11/04/2024 Duração: 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.
