Notes from Chris

Episode 784

We’ve just finished week 8 of Season III!

I mentioned a while back that I’ve been hearing from listeners asking for help staying on track.

After the recent Side Hustle Society launch, I got an idea. I immediately made a bunch of notes and sent them off to our team.

In a true test of accountability, I’m telling you now that this project will be happening in less than a month even though we don’t have everything ready on our end yet. If you have an idea for a project, you might want to be thinking about it.

In today’s recap: I'll share more about the Side Hustle Bootcamp, and we'll touch on a concept I like to call "The Reverse Bucket List."


Today, we have an update from Jason Lautenschleger, who was featured on the show in Ep. 243.

Listen to the Weekly Recap to hear from Jason himself!

You can also check out his website, Game Night in a Can.

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

  • Ep. 779 - A British millennial keeps her savings in an old-fashioned piggy bank … until it’s stolen! Upon recovering from the loss, she invents an all new career
  • Ep. 780 - After years of dealing with chronic pain, an athlete discovers the magic of CBD oil—then teams up with his sister to become a ringside evangelist for it
  • Ep. 781 - After feeling mistreated at work, this workforce development expert regroups and plans her escape
  • Ep. 782 - Three women create a community to connect girls with caregivers while exploring topics about body image, STEM, and creativity. It’s not a charity; it’s a for-profit, social enterprise
  • Ep. 783 - A mortgage specialist mixes her love for baking into a sugary, profitable side hustle
  • Ep. 784 - A woman creates an Etsy store to market her wood-burned artistry wares, specializing in custom, handcrafted drumsticks
Inspiration is good; inspiration combined with action is better. Now get back to work!
