Words of Wisdom

Tim experimented with several versions of his hustle, first doing all the personalization for the resumes himself. Over time, he found a better approach in selling templates on Creative Market. The project is now completely hands-off.

Test a few things out and see what works best for you and your hustle. Lots of trial and error will help you fine tune a successful side hustle!

Fun Fact

His side hustle, Foundry Stationary, is now generating completely passive income!
