Getting Started Ideas Side Hustle Weekly Recap

Action Item:

When you finish this episode and go on with your day, pay attention and ask yourself: what am I dissatisfied with? What is missing from something I enjoy or use all the time? This kind of thinking is how many successful side hustles are made.

 

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

Finding Ideas

In this week's episodes, our hustlers found ideas for their hustles in several different places. Getting started with websites like Fiverr and Etsy is easy (see Ep. #5 and Ep. #6), but good ideas can also come from something you're passionate about (see Ep. #2 and Ep. #4) or not being able to find a product or service you need (see Ep. #3 and Ep. #6).

Words of Wisdom

If you care about something, odds are someone else out there is too. The best part? If you craft your hustle around something you love to do, it's less likely to feel like work.
