Latest Side Hustle Posts
Adventures in building job-free income streams.
When I asked listeners last month who they’d like to hear on the show, Rob Cubbon is a name that came up from a couple different people.
Rob’s been crushing it lately between is online teaching efforts and his Kindle publishing business, and as luck would have it, is a Side Hustle Show listener himself.
I’ve been following Rob’s blog for some time myself, and have been really impressed with his journey. In fact, it’s pretty inspiring and eye-opening to see some his quarterly income reports, with much of the money coming from Udemy.
Have you seen The Lego Movie yet? I missed it in the theater but rented it on iTunes a few months ago. Twice.
It’s a good flick, and I’m not just saying that; it’s rated 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.
But beyond being quality entertainment for the whole family, The Lego Movie packs some important lessons for current and aspiring entrepreneurs.
Here are my Top 5.
Jasper Ribbers is one of the leading experts on building an Airbnb side hustle, having done it himself with his Amsterdam apartment and having co-authored the bestselling book on the topic, Get Paid for Your Pad.
(He also runs a blog and podcast by the same name.)
I was introduced to Jasper by Jesse Krieger (Episode 62, Generating Lifestyle Business Ideas That Work), and grew fascinated by his story. He gets to travel the world while his asset back at home earns roughly $60,000 a year from short-term Airbnb rentals.
Like I’ve mentioned, I’ve got a soft spot for cold callers, and a warm place in my heart for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts (since scouting was good to me), so combine the two and I’m already pulling out my wallet.
The other night our neighbor’s grandson came by in his Cub Scout uniform, almost too shy to even speak, to sell some popcorn products as a fundraiser.
The whole thing got me thinking about how the Girl Scouts are a million times better at this fundraising hustle.
