Kenny Azama has worked with massive global brands like Nike, Samsung, Apple, Chevrolet, and Coca Cola, but he’s not an ad agency or a top secret marketing mogul.

He’s a professional brand ambassador, “someone who is temporarily hired to represent a brand in a positive light, and provide consumers with a memorable face-to-face experience.”

I think this in an interesting side hustle, and one we haven’t covered on the site before, because as Kenny explains, there are always gigs nearby, they’re fun, and they can actually pay pretty well.

When we caught up, Kenny was in the middle of a cross-country RV tour for a pet care brand, earning $2k a week!

Traveling the country, playing with dogs, and making $8k a month? Um, that sounds pretty cool!

But not every brand ambassador gig requires this kind of full-time commitment, and many can be done on your schedule part-time, nights and weekends.

Kenny is so in love with this income stream he’s actually built an online platform dedicated to helping people learn more about the opportunity.

  1. Thank you for this great article. Something that freelancers need to do is be their own brand ambassador. It can really make a difference in their income stream! The key is to focus on the brand(s) you work with or are trying to create and be open to opportunities.

    • Hey Robert,

      That’s a great point! We actually have been Brand Ambassadors our whole lives as we have been promoting ourselves, our values, our skills, etc. If we become more aware of that fact and apply it more like you suggested, I’m sure many of us would not only see a difference in our income streams but also in our overall lives. Thanks for sharing!


  2. This is interesting. Whenever I think of brand ambassadors, I think of scantily clad sexy women (and men sometimes) who hold up bottles of Herbal Essence.

    Thanks for the episode!

  3. What can a retired couple who has plenty of time do to make some extra income and have fun at the same time.. we are definite people persons an have all the time in the world.

    • Hi, Kathy

      I know of some work you and your husband can do together. You would be helping people in their own homes in taking care of them. You would call a home care agency and the government pays for your services.

      I don’t know what you mean by having fun but you can choose the people you want to help.

      I do it for myself. It’s a couple of blocks from me. I adore my client and love his storeies.

    • Do you enjoy coffee? Get paid to be a Brand Ambassador for our coffee company.
