The author of The ＄100 Startup shows how to launch a profitable side hustle—defined as any entrepreneurial venture that one can do alongside their more stable and steady job—in just 27 days.
Today it seems as though just about everyone dreams of being an entrepreneur. But without a steady flow of income it can be challenging to take the plunge. Side Hustle is the answer to those wishing to pursue their passions, make extra money, and enjoy the freedom of entrepreneurship without the risks of giving up a steady paycheck and going full throttle into the world of working for themselves.
In his travels, Chris talks with readers about entrepreneurship and living a freer, more adventurous life. And he’s yet to meet one whose eyes didn’t light up whenever he mentions the phrase “side hustle.” That’s because the allure of the side hustle is about much more than just making some extra cash; it’s about freedom and job security in today’s unstable business environment. That’s because when you receive income from multiple different sources, you are no longer dependent on the whims of a single employer. It affords you choices, and options.
In the style of The ＄100 Startup, full of practical exercises and peppered with inspiring stories, this book shows readers how to brainstorm, choose, implement, launch, and refine their side hustle in just 27 days—with little to no budget, and without having to quit their current job.
