No — Side Hustle Nation hasn’t quite hit the $1 million mark yet. That honor is reserved for true blogging elite, and in that spirit I’m excited to introduce Michelle Schroeder-Gardner, the founder of Making Sense of Cents. On her blog, Michelle helps readers learn how to make extra money, save money, and reach their dream […]
So, you want to start a blog?
I don’t blame you! After all, it’s a great way to make money online and potentially begin to earn some of that elusive passive income.
And the good news is, it’s really not that hard (or expensive) to get started. In fact, you can be up and running in less than 15 minutes and for less than $3 a month.
If you’re reading this, congratulations. You survived your first year on this planet.
A first birthday is cause for celebration — even if you won’t remember it. We’ve had a crazy year, huh little guy?
Have you ever done a juice cleanse or a “Whole30” challenge?
While I haven’t ever gone to that extreme, I DO always feel better physically and mentally after even just a few days of clean eating.
So if a quick “cleanse” can work for our health, why not try it with our money?
As we move into 2017, on the surface, things are great. I had my best year financially since 2009, we managed to keep our little hustler alive 11 months in a row, and we went on quite a few cool adventures as a family.
Yet I’ve got some weird anxiety. Like I’m working every week, but maybe not on the right things. Like I could and should be taking on more or different projects. Like I’m letting people down who email me. Like I’m in maintenance mode and not growth mode — even though things are growing.
The new year is upon us and you may be inspired to make a renewed investment in education.
One of the best places to do that is Udemy.com, a worldwide marketplace of instructors and students.
Today I want to share some of the top courses on Udemy for entrepreneurs, freelancers, and side hustlers.
Thursday is Podcast Day, or as my wife calls it, “The Day Nick Spends at Least an Hour Trying to Send Out an Email.”
I’m constantly trying to improve my email deliverability, engagement, and open rates, so I wanted to take this opportunity to look back through some of the data and see which of my subject lines from this year performed the best.
Productized service businesses are all the rage these days. They involve packing up a service traditionally sold on a freelance or hourly basis, and instead selling it at a fixed price or on a monthly retainer contract.
Examples include Dan Norris’ WP Curve, which offers unlimited WordPress support for $79 a month, or Russ Perry’s Design Pickle, which offers unlimited graphic design tasks for $370 a month.
These services are popping up in a ton of different niches, and for good reason. They have low startup costs, low overhead, and a simple to understand proposition for customers.
Try as I might to do all my shopping online, I still find myself running errands around town at least on a weekly basis.
And my guess is you’re in the same boat.
With Christmas and the holiday season coming up, I wanted to share a few cool apps and resources that can help you save money while you shop, make a few extra bucks, and even invest your change.
You know I wouldn’t condone the mindless consumerism, the frenzied deal-hunting hordes, or the manufactured scarcity that typically go along with a Black Friday-themed message, BUT if you were going to buy something anyway, you might as well get the best deal on it, right?
So here’s a short selection of products and services that may help your business and your bottom line for the duration of 2016 and beyond.
