Adventures in building job-free income streams.
When I learned the results Kellie Gimenez was seeing in her business, I knew I had to hear the story firsthand. She’s a former co-worker of mine, who became a Beachbody coach in the spring of 2013.
After following along with her journey on social media, I finally reached out to invite her on the show.
In just 18 months, she’s built her business up to more than $4k per month, with plans to push it to $10k by mid 2015!
And the crazy part is she says she only works on it an hour or two a day.

After asking people what kind of side hustle projects they’re working on and their near- and long-term goals for those projects, I ask, “What’s holding you back?”
And last week I wrote about how one of the most common responses was simply time — as in, I don’t have enough hours in the day.
Today, Alexis Grant runs a social media, content marketing, and blog management agency and manages a team of 10 people to get it all done.
But like many of us, she started off as a side hustler, working her way up and adding clients until it was time to make the leap.
She took some very strategic steps along the way, including setting up clients on a retainer model instead of a one-off project basis, and building a “personal brand” and audience of her own through her blog.
Time is our most valuable commodity, and it’s uniquely egalitarian; we’re all dealt the same 24-hours each day.
But it’s also a non-renewable resource — once it’s used up it’s used up.
That means we have to be conscious of how we use our time, of how we invest it.
And I’ll use the word “invest” rather than the word “spend” because I believe side hustling time, business-building time, is an investment — an investment in your future that will, with any luck, result in MORE time down the road.
