Episode 813

We’ve just finished week 12 of Season III!

This week, we featured a rosary bead hustle, 50 shades of editing romance novels, a series of pizza parlor tours in Chicago, and more.

This episode also comes to you live from Thailand, where I’m working on location for the rest of the week.

In today's recap: I’ll bring you TWO audio updates from previously featured case studies. Both of them are people who experienced major changes in their side hustle, one of them in the form of a partnership and the other whose hustle needs to close.

What can we take away from these two stories?


Today, we have TWO updates! One from Miraya Berke, who was featured on the show in Ep. 284 and another from Shahan Fancy, who was featured on the show in Ep. 277.

Listen to the Weekly Recap to hear from Miraya and Shahan!

You can also check out Miraya's website at Dessert Goals and Shahan's website at Shave Valet.

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

  • Ep. 807 - A stay-at-home mom’s prayers are answered when she begins to earn a full-time income making and selling rosary beads
  • Ep. 808 - A corporate recruiter pursues a steamy side business editing romance novels
  • Ep. 809 - A Chicago food reporter launches weekly pizza tours, showing Windy City visitors that there’s more to life than just deep-dish
  • Ep. 810 - Many of this freelancer’s clients all suffered from the same frustrations. They needed more time and fewer headaches—so she started a project to help them build productive systems
  • Ep. 811 - A Colorado artist utilizes Instagram and wholesale relationships to grow his following and bank account with unique designs. When his first attempt to go full-time ends in frustration, he regroups for a second attempt
  • Ep. 812 - A New Zealander’s artistic side hustle encourages nostalgia while providing extra income and a creative outlet
Inspiration is good; inspiration combined with action is better. Now get back to work!
