For some people, the thought of quitting their day job to pursue the entrepreneurial life is exhilarating. For many others, it's terrifying. After all, a stable job that delivers a regular paycheck is a blessing. And not everyone has the means or the desire to take on the risks and responsibilities of working for themselves.
But what if we could quickly and easily create an additional stream of income without giving up the security of a full-time job? Enter the side hustle.
Chris Gullibeau is no stranger to this world, having launched more than a dozen side hustles over his career. Here he offers a step-by-step guide that takes you from idea to income in just 27 days.
Designed for the busy and impatient, this detailed road map will show you how to select, launch, refine, and make money from your side hustle in under a month. You'll learn how to:
Brainstorm, borrow, and steal to build an arsenal of great side hustle ideas (day 3)
Apply "Tinder for Side Hustle" logic to pick the best idea at any time (day 6)
Learn, gather, or create everything you need to launch; then set up a real-life way to get paid (days 13-14)
Start raking in the money by channeling your inner Girl Scout (day 18)
Master the art of deals, discounts, and special offers (day 21)
Raise your game: improve, expand, or make more money off your hustle (days 24-26)
A side hustle is more than just another stream of income; it's also the new job security. When you receive paychecks from different sources, it allows you to take more chances in your "regular" career. More income means more options. More options equals freedom. You don't need entrepreneurial experience to launch a profitable side hustle. You don't have to have an MBA or know how to code or be an expert marketer. You don't need employees or investors. With Chris as a guide, anyone can make more money, pursue a passion, and enjoy greater security - without quitting their day job.

Just $100 Startup" distilled - At Double speed.
What would have made Side Hustle better?
Dates. Dates would have made it better. When you hear stories about people making great money on photography, and affiliate marketing, etc, you know you're hearing stories from pre 2010.
There may be ONE story in this book that has a date attached to it, but otherwise, none do. And there IS money to be made in those areas, but NOT as a "side hustle."
Not working at it less than FULL TIME. Not in 2017.
Would you ever listen to anything by Chris Guillebeau again?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Chris Guillebeau?
Chris read his book like he was racing to just get it done. He frequently slurred words together because he was reading so fast.
It's hard to believe that with his massive business network, he couldn't find someone who could read his book properly, and not do things like make SideHustleSchool.Com sound like "Sideuhhslskl.com."
Any additional comments?
Look, there are a number of good action points in the book. But it is barely any different than the $100 Startup.
Many of the characters, once again, benefited from "lucky mentions" in very prominent online media. A few had very substantial cash reserves to fund $100K + equipment for their "side hustle."
However, the reader should take note about all of the references to his website. It is what is known as a "sales funnel." It leads readers to more ways to give Chris money. He actually hints at some of this in his books, but never really delves into the topic.
Go to the website, look at how many ways there are to hand over more money. And let me say, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. I applaud a great salesman - and Chris is exactly that!! But that is information left on the cutting room floor. Maybe YOUR Side Hustle could benefit from knowing the power of a "sales funnel." Google it.
If you have not read the $100 Startup, and have no idea what to do with your idea for a side business, this book, or the $100 Startup may be worth your time.
I didn't get a free copy, and I am not returning it because there is some good information. But this book is mostly just a "Side Hustle" for the author. Know that going in.

Too quick and a bit monotonous
The stories are OK, but the narrator speaks very fast, and keeps the same tone all the time which makes me lose focus many times. I think the written version of the book will be more effective, speaking for my self of course. Last word: Stories should be told like stories not like reading a newspaper, so we can follow you easily and receive the message more effectively
