87: The 5 Step System to Quit Your Job In the Next 12 Months

If you’re not already following Bryan Harris, I recommend you do. The guy is super smart and has a unique way of breaking things down so that they’re easy to understand and implement.

He doesn’t mess around, and gives super-detailed actionable advice with some awesome examples, but gives the caveat that it takes real work. This is not a 4-hour workweek passive income system — at least not at first.

But that’s OK, because we’re hustlers and ready to make something happen in 2015, right?

81: The Path to $5k a Month Passive Income Sharing What You Already Know

When I asked listeners last month who they’d like to hear on the show, Rob Cubbon is a name that came up from a couple different people.

Rob’s been crushing it lately between is online teaching efforts and his Kindle publishing business, and as luck would have it, is a Side Hustle Show listener himself.

I’ve been following Rob’s blog for some time myself, and have been really impressed with his journey. In fact, it’s pretty inspiring and eye-opening to see some his quarterly income reports, with much of the money coming from Udemy.

78: How to Build a Full-Time Freelancing Business

Carrie Smith’s CarefulCents blog is one of my personal favorites.

Why? Because she’s a side hustler who’s been there, done that.

She’s built her part-time freelancing business to the point where she was able to quit her job and become a full-time entrepreneur. In the process, she’s built up a popular blog and personal brand, paid off $14k in debt, and commands significantly above-market rates for her work.

76: Building Recurring Revenue Streams as a Side Hustler

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.

75: How I Earned $7490 in My First 14 Months on Fiverr (and my plans to double it)

One of the surprising bright spots in my side hustle portfolio (my strategy of building multiple income streams) has been Fiverr.

After hearing the incredible story of AnarchoFighter last year, I knew I had to give the platform a shot!

While I haven’t exactly earned house-buying money, it has turned into a nice little revenue source. I’m up $7490 through 14 months, or a little over $500 a month on average.

71: One Page Adsense Sites and Productized Consulting

If you’ve been in the “niche site” game at all over the past few years, this week’s conversation will open your eyes to a whole new world of possibility in the realm of making money with Adsense.

Kurt Elster is the co-founder of EtherCycle, an online marketing strategy and web design and development firm. But on top of that, his company also runs a plethora of one-page micro-sites that earn advertising revenue with Adsense.

67: The Hustler’s Path: From Freelance to Agency to Product

It’s been quite a while since our last discussion of a software business here on the show. Even though we touched briefly on Long Tail Pro with Spencer Haws, I really have to go all the way back to Josh Isaak in episode 12 to find an in-depth breakdown of a Software as a service business.
So that means today’s conversation with Garrett Moon from CoSchedule is long overdue! After all, the low incremental cost and recurring revenue potential of the SaaS model is such a trendy holy grail of business right now.

65: How to Reverse Engineer Your Blog to Get Paying Clients (and 10x Your Hourly Rate)

Corrina Gordon-Barnes is a sought-after coach and mentor, and today she shares with Side Hustle Nation exactly how she built her business from the ground up.

There are some surprising turns and some eye-opening responses in this one, as I ask Corrina about how she prices her services, how she landed her first clients, how she’s scaling her business, and how she made blogging work as an effective marketing channel.

59: How to Start a Side Hustle Consulting Business that Gets Paid, with Kai Davis

Consulting can be a beautiful business model because it transitions you from selling what you do to selling what you know.

So what do you know that other businesses might pay for? What could you consult on?

We cover all that and more with Kai Davis this week on The Side Hustle Show. We talk everything from landing more clients, increasing your rates, getting paid to do work you used to do for free, how to get clients on a monthly retainer agreement, and if you stick around to the end of the show — Kai lays out his exact one-hour-at-a-time plan on how he would get a new consulting business off the ground.

53: How to Earn Your First $1000 as a Freelancer

In this edition of The Side Hustle Show, I’m joined by Cameron Rambert all the way from Melbourne Australia! He’s a freelance marketing strategist and the founder of DigitalMined.com, a growing resource for struggling freelancers.

We talk about how aspiring side hustlers can get started earning their first dollars outside of their day job as freelancers — and I agree — freelancing is one of the fastest ways to make more money.

Usually Hustling, Occasionally Social
