We’re all dealt 24 hours a day. I believe how you spend that time, or maybe rather how you invest it, should give you some sort of return.
That could be a monetary return, sure. But it could also be a return in personal satisfaction or impact on others.
Today, I want to introduce a productivity framework I’m calling The Productivity Pyramid.
Starting a business doesn’t have to be expensive — in fact, low startup cost business ideas are everywhere.
Just last week, Nate and Alysha Jackson explained how they started their Amazon retail arbitrage business with just $100 — and had since grown to over $1 million in total sales.
Inspired by their story, along with a couple of threads in the Side Hustle Nation Facebook group that asked for some real-life low startup cost business ideas, I put together this episode.
With a ton of ways for people to make money, there’s no wonder why Amazon is at at the center of so many side hustles these days.
The innovative–if not controversial–Seattle company still has its core retail business, but has expanded in many different directions. For entrepreneurs, side hustlers, and everyone else looking to earn some extra cash, Amazon probably has an option for you.
I have several Amazon income streams myself!
We’re hooked on our devices, but did you know your smartphone can actually make you money every month? Here are some of my favorite money making apps and money saving apps.
Some are completely passive after you set them up, while others take a little more time.
I’ve broken these down by category, and encourage you to pick and install the ones that make the most sense for you.
I recently participated in a paid focus group in San Francisco. You know, the kind with the one-way mirror on the wall.
We talked about travel habits and preferences for an hour and half, and I got paid $150 for my time and opinions. Not bad!
The whole thing was pretty quick and painless, and actually kind of interesting, and it got me thinking that this could be a fun side hustle, so I set out to find other consumer research companies that operate nationwide or even ones that conduct studies online.
I set out to write the best damn passive income ideas post on the Internet.
Because here’s the thing. Most “passive income” list posts just repeat the same boilerplate ideas–open a high interest savings account, for example.
And yes, that will earn you a small amount of passive income (and I’ll certainly mention it as an option below), but my guess is you’re looking for something a little more substantial.
