In honor of Amazon’s annual Prime Day sale, I wanted to throw a little sale of my own.
To start, I’ve discounted all my side hustle-related Kindle books to $0.99 or better.
$1,000 100 Ways (2021)
Featuring 100 members of the Side Hustle Nation community, my latest book showcases how they:
- came up with their side hustle ideas
- how they found their first customers
- what’s working to market their business
- what they’d do differently if they had to start over
- and more
The Side Hustle (2019)
This book, which now has over 1000 reviews, is permanently free on Kindle (in the US store). It focuses on the Big 3 side hustle business models:
Buy Buttons (2016)
Go where the cash is already flowing! Buy Buttons features literally hundreds of marketplaces where you can put your products, services, and even ideas up for sale.
Full disclosure: Since it’s now almost 6 years old, some of the platforms have shifted over time, but the broad strategies are still valid.
Work Smarter (2015)
Work Smarter is a compilation of online tools and resources recommended by top entrepreneurs.
It was last updated in 2015, so the latest software and apps aren’t going to be listed.
11 Other Favorite Products
These may or may not be on sale for Prime Day, but are some of my personal favorites!
1. Standing Desk
I got the 55″ version of this sit/stand desk for my new office and it’s been awesome. I prefer to stand for interviews and most meetings, but find I do better thinking when I have the option to sit as well.
With this, you can program different height settings and it adjusts with the click of a button.
2. Ring Light
My office has a window on my right side, which often left my left side poorly lit on video. To help solve that, I bought this affordable ring light and already notice a difference on the screen.
3. Podcast Mics
One of my best investments ever was in my original podcast mic!
4. Parrot Teleprompter
In my efforts to be a better YouTuber, one product has been essential — this affordable smartphone teleprompter.It’s paid for itself many times in the form of faster video production and YouTube ad revenue.
This “brain-sensing” headband is kind of expensive, but for me it’s been the thing that finally helped build a meditation habit.
If you’re sold on the benefits of meditation but have trouble prioritizing it, the combination of gamifying it + spending money on it may be just enough to stick with it. I have the “Muse 2” but there’s a newer version available as well.
I do very little reading that’s not on my Kindle these days. I love that it’s lightweight, portable, and can store tons of different books. The battery lasts forever. It’s been a great investment.
Plus, you can check out ebooks from your library for free! And to think I used to put physical books on hold and have to drive to pick them up! What a world we live in :)
7. Wireless Earbuds
I know I’d lose my frugal card forever if I was rocking $180 Airpods. These bluetooth earbuds cost a fraction of that and have easily been one of my favorite hardware upgrades.
8. Adjustable Height Monitor
This 27″ LG monitor has been an awesome edition to the home office.
9. Snake Plant
I’ll admit it — I sometimes work later at night after the kids go to bed. But when I do, I make sure to where these blue-light blocking glasses to not mess up my sleep.
