While my own college days are ancient history, I think it’s more important than ever that college students learn how to make money.
College itself is more expensive than ever, and that’s led to more and more people borrowing money to pay for it. This year’s graduates will carry more than a degree–they’ll also head out into the world with an average of $33,000 of debt.
But if you can start your working career without the huge burden of debt, you’ve already got a major leg-up on your path to financial independence.

But what if you could lose weight and make money doing it? Would that be enough motivation to stick with your exercise and diet regimen?
Tough times don’t last, but tough people do.
As you know, one of the core themes of Side Hustle Nation is to control what you can control, even when the world seems to be spinning out of it.
I’m still wrapping my head around what the coronavirus outbreak means for all of us. I mean, we’ve never been through a global pandemic before! We’re all learning as we go.
But at this point, it feels weird NOT to address the issue, so here goes.
Can you really get paid to walk?
Walking is one of those things we do every day but rarely think about. In fact, according to the Mayo Clinic, the average American walks about 1.5 to 2 miles a day, which equates to about 3,000 to 4,000 steps a day.
And in true side hustle fashion, it turns out there lots of ways to monetize those steps and make money walking.
