I’ve talked about Chris Guillebeau before, specifically in my recent post about 8 audiobooks I listened to in 2018. He has a book called Side Hustle in which he outlines the process for taking an idea you have and developing a profitable side hustle in a mere 27 days.
And he’s got stories of person after person who have done exactly that.
Chris also has a daily podcast where he tells a story about a real person who brought their side hustle idea to a profitable business and how they did it. Through all these stories, he tackles strategies for developing extra income as well as common struggles and how to combat them.
I love his podcast because listening to a different story every day is super motivational. And understanding the shear vastness of side hustle possibilities helps get the ideas flowing. Chris has decades of experience in living off of side hustles and understands the process.
I highly recommend his podcast!amzn_assoc_placement = “adunit0”; amzn_assoc_tracking_id = “calebblog-20”; amzn_assoc_ad_mode = “manual”; amzn_assoc_ad_type = “smart”; amzn_assoc_marketplace = “amazon”; amzn_assoc_region = “US”; amzn_assoc_title = “Two Excellent Books from Chris Guillebeau”; amzn_assoc_linkid = “5fc2248e1159bf890c45c736757c2feb”; amzn_assoc_design = “in_content”; amzn_assoc_asins = “1524758841,0399582576”; //z-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/onejs?MarketPlace=US
My own side hustle
I have a side hustle, though I didn’t know about Chris and his resources until well after I started mine.
Mine is filmmaking.
I actually have a business called Hearthstone Films. The process of getting a video together for a client and them being excited about it makes me really enjoy the projects. This past weekend, I filmed a wedding! I actually figured out this was my 9th wedding I have filmed. Pretty cool!
I also finished another project this past weekend for a golf course. It’s a promotional video about Fling Golf. Here’s the video right here.
The thing I like about my hustle is it gives me a space for me to exercise my creativity. Sure, engineering needs creativity as well! It’s just not the same type in my opinion.
Do you have a side hustle? If so, what is it?
