What's a Side Hustle?

A side hustle is something you do to earn money outside a traditional job.

Maybe that's an economic necessity for you.

Maybe it's an act of rebellion against "the system."

Maybe it's just plain fun.

Whatever it is, it's empowering. 

When you think of the word “hustle,” what comes to mind?

I’ve found it has two very different connotations:

One positive — “He’s not the biggest guy on the court but he sure shows a lot of hustle!

And one negative — “I got hustled by that used car salesman!”

The type of hustle I’m talking about is the former:

  • Getting more done with less
  • Having a "finisher’s” attitude
  • Playing for the love of the game


  • Ripping people off
  • Easy money
  • Mind-numbing work

The first step to building a successful side hustle is to get the mindset right. Without the optimistic, can-do, make-something-happen attitude, it’s really difficult to find the positive energy required to build the business.

For me, "hustle" is about taking back control of your own effort and your own financial health and well-being.

No one else is going to do it for you.

If you’re the down-on-your-luck, woe-is-me victim of life, I’ll be 100% honest: this whole side hustle thing probably isn’t going to work out for you.

It starts with attitude.

The good news is attitude is free, and it’s equal-opportunity; everyone has access to the hustle mindset.
