This week’s guest booked $100k worth of work in their first 9 months of a new side hustle they had no experience with.
Haley Gallagher and her husband are serial side hustlers and were specifically looking for a side hustle they could do after hours.
Seeing an opportunity at a bar he was working security for, Haley’s husband asked if they could take on the cleaning contract.
This week’s guest started his side hustle with the goal of earning an extra $1,000 a month – fast forward four summers later and it’s now a 6-figure business.
Blademir Hernandez of LitterFreeLots.nyc is a long-time listener of the Side Hustle Show who was inspired by Brian Winch’s story in episode 266 to start his business.
Brian built a $650k a year operation picking up litter and cleaning parking lots, something Blademir told me he knew he could also do.
This week’s guest took a pain point she was experiencing – finding a nanny for her 3-month-old – and turned it into a multi 6-figure full-time business with 500 nannies across 5 states.
Kristy Bickmeyer started TwinkleToesNanny.com back in 2011 in response to not being able to find a nanny herself.

Reselling software gives you many of the benefits of a software business, without the upfront development cost.
That means you can enjoy recurring revenue, selling one product to multiple customers, and strong profit margins by white labeling a software tool that already exists.
These benefits are what attract many people to starting a SaaS, or software as a service, but you may not need to go through the trouble.
After all, there may already be a tool that solves the same problem. Could you become a software reseller instead of a software creator?
