443: 10 Life and Business Lessons from Mom: The Best Mom Advice

5/6/2021
With Mother's Day coming up, I wanted to share some of the best advice and lessons I got from mom growing up. Most of the time, this was pretty literal advice, but I found a lot of it has a broader application to entrepreneurship. Mom has always been probably my biggest advocate and supporter. For background, she essentially had a couple different careers, first in nursing and then as a library assistant. (At the library, she actually helped me get one of my first jobs in high...

4/29/2021
$10,000 a month working 20-hour weeks sounds like a pretty sweet gig! And for Jade Weatherington, it's been a dream come true to make a living in education--while working from home. Her financial success didn't happen overnight. She had months of earning less than $100 from her online private tutoring. But when she discovered a then-new platform called Outschool, things really started to take off. In her first month on the platform, Jade made $32. Still, she was encouraged by the...

441: $225k in 18 Hours a Week: The Path to High-Paying Consulting Gigs

4/22/2021
Last year, Brad Rice booked $225,000 worth of Salesforce consulting work. That's impressive on its own, but what's crazier is he only worked an average of 18 hours a week. Brad took his existing skills and experience with a popular software product, and pivoted to become a remote freelance consultant. This is the "SWAS" strategy: Software with a Service. (We’ve heard from guests following a similar path with Asana and Quickbooks.) If you're not familiar with Salesforce, it's the #1 CRM...

440: $10k a Month Investing in Mobile Homes

4/15/2021
Rachel cash-flows $10k a month from her portfolio of mobile homes. When most people think of real estate investing, mobile homes probably don't come to mind. In fact, technically speaking, mobile homes are personal property--not real estate. Still, this is a sub-niche in real estate that comes with the familiar cash-flowing opportunity of buying a building and renting it out for a profit. Rachel Hernandez has been investing in mobile homes for over 10 years. She made her first mobile home...

438: From Idea to 6-Figure Side Hustle: A Listener Success Story

4/1/2021
Anthony and Jhanilka Hartzog erased $114k of debt in 23 months. The couple were making good money at their day jobs, but realized there's only so much you can cut from your budget. That’s when they turned to the income side of the equation and started a ton of different side hustles. They picked up second jobs at their gym, rented out their car on Turo, dogsitted, and — inspired by my episode with Chris Schwab — they started a residential cleaning business called Maids2Match.com.

437: Domain Flipping: $70k+/yr Investing in Domain Names Part-Time

3/25/2021
Can you still make money in domain flipping? Last year, Mark Levine flipped 70 domain names, for around $160k in gross profit. Of that, he spent a little over half on renewal fees for his domain name portfolio and acquiring new domains to add to it, netting $70-80k for the year. Not bad for a part-time hobby! In his spare time, Mark manages a portfolio of 3500-4000 domains. That's not huge by domain investor standards, but still a good-sized collection. With established investors like...

Service businesses can get a bad rap. After all, there are clients to deal with, and actual labor involved in fulfillment. They’re just not as glamorous as other more “passive” income models. But you should know that more Side Hustle Show guests started with a service-based business model than any other.
