Notes from Chris
Episode 1306If you have not yet had a question answered on the podcast, just let me know—come to SideHustleSchool.com/questions and we’ll get you in the queue. But this was a good question from Jon and it’s been 200 days since his last one. He’s wondering about how to charge for a travel service, especially in the post-COVID world.
"Hey, Chris. My name is Jon and I have a question at the cross-section of travel and Side hustle and I thought, who better to ask than you, my friend? I've been exploring places for me and someone very close to me to visit. She's on the west coast of the U.S. and I'm on the East Coast. And with all the quarantining, we're really excited to be able to get out and meet up and see each other here soon. I've really enjoyed the process of scouring flights and times and dates to cities within our budgets that we could meet up somewhere in the middle of the country. And I'd like to do this as a side hustle for others in the same boat. I really have enjoyed it and I love connecting people and it just checks a lot of boxes for me. So my question is, it's a two-parter. How would you recommend I charge for such a service? And also, what are the ways that I could find clients and people in the same boat? Thanks. Keep fighting the good fight. Chris, we need it now more than ever. A lot of uncertainty. And I always love your message and always love the great work you and your team are doing by."Listen to today's episode to learn more...
