Notes from Chris

Episode 764

We’ve just finished week 5 of Season III!

February has arrived, and my gym is back to being less crowded. But not you, right? You are sticking with your resolutions. If not, you can start again right now, today. And make sure one of those resolutions is to invest in yourself.

In today’s recap: a note on accountability, an audio update from a previously featured story, and a discussion about purchasing Amazon returns and reselling them (here's the link to that Atlantic article!).


Today, we have an update from Evan Oxhorn, who was featured on the show in Ep. 175.

Listen to the Weekly Recap to hear from Evan himself!

You can also check out his website, Stock Music Musician.

Here's what we heard this week on Side Hustle School! Listen to this week's recap for a more comprehensive highlight reel.

  • Ep. 758 - A presidential pencil holder and a keen eye for travel gear leads to a $6,000/month travel business
  • Ep. 759 - Two teachers create a multi-tasking tote bag from scratch, building it into a six-figure business in just six months
  • Ep. 760 - A nonprofit executive partners with a friend to provide IT services for charities and small businesses

Inspiration is good; inspiration combined with action is better. Now get back to work!
