A One-Page Summary Of

Side Hustle

From Idea to Income in 27 Days

The Main Idea

Everyone should have a side hustle – a part-time business you run to generate additional income without giving up your day job. Why?

  • A side hustle gives you job security.
  • You can use the skills you already have to generate more income with a side hustle. No additional training is required.
  • Having more than one source of income will give you more freedom and more options.
  • A side hustle can allow you to do more of what you love to do with no added financial pressure.

The Side Hustle Plan is all about taking action to go from idea to income in 27 days or less. To achieve that, you don't need to spend any money. Nor do you need an MBA or any employees, assistants or business partners. All you do need is a commitment to act and a willingness to commit no more than an hour a day to growing your side hustle. You'll be amazed at how simple it is to turn your idea into income when you follow the plan.

In today’s environment, where the idea of a business having any sense of loyalty to its workers has all but disappeared, the side hustle is the new job security. It affords you the ability to decide. When you receive multiple paychecks from different sources, you are no longer dependent on the whims of a single employer. More income means more options. More options mean more freedom. No matter what it is you do in your day job, or whether you want to identify as an “entrepreneur” or not, you need a side hustle. If you follow this plan, you’ll have one in less than a month. Side hustle skills are not taught in school. The only way to master side hustle skills is by doing.
