I’m excited to welcome Alex Genadinik back to The Side Hustle Show as the first-ever repeat guest. Alex reached out and told me how he’d applied many of the strategies and tactics discussed on the show over the past year, and I thought it would be fun to highlight some of those along with his progress.
Alex’s “year of hustle” has created at least 4 new income streams, including a couple more “passive” channels.
This episode illustrates the power of starting today, so you can look back a year from now and see how far you’ve come. Neither of us are millionaires, but we’re making progress and are in a better position today than we were a year ago — in large part because we took action.
“Just do it” and “just start” were two of the most commonly-issued words of advice through the first 50 episodes of the show, and I don’t think we can take that lightly.
Every all-star was once a rookie.
Every professor was once a student.
Every expert was once a beginner.
I hope our conversation will spark some ideas and inspire you to take action and start on your journey, so a year from now you can join me on the show and share you progress!
