Action Item:

As you listen to the daily episodes, ask yourself a few questions based on the lessons we've covered so far with the weekly recaps:


1) What am I dissatisfied with? Ask if there's something missing from the things you enjoy or use all the time.


2) How can I make someone’s life better? Focus on what your potential customer really needs, and then focus on catering to that need.


3) What kind of Side Hustle is right for me? Draw upon skills you already possess and find ways to make them work for you.


All of these questions will help lead you to the right kind of side hustles. Don't settle for being inspired—take these lessons and implement them in a hustle of your own!


Remember, inspiration is good, but inspiration combined with action is much better.

Words of Wisdom

As Joe said in (Ep. 16) "You can't fake passion, and that's what really sells the product. You have to channel your passion, whatever that enthusiasm is, into your side hustle."

When you're thinking of what kind of side hustle is going to work for you, see if there's something lacking or in need of improvement in regards to something you're passionate about.

Highlights From This Week

  • Ep. 16 - Joe's side hustle shows the power of adaptation and being willing to let your idea evolve
  • Ep. 18 - Daisy built relationships and related to a demographic that does not tend to respond well to traditional marketing. But because she was one of them, and she was consistent, she was able to do very well
  • Ep. 19 - This kind of reselling business is great for people who are logical thinkers and comfortable with working with a lot of data
