In this post, I want to inform you a small about the podcast itself, as nicely as the method it took to get me on this really well known podcast. Study beneath, and also click on the hyperlink at the really finish to hear my episode!
What is Side Hustle College?
According to the Side Hustle College web-site:
If you are attempting to make a huge alter, a hustle can support you construct a foundation to move on to anything else. If you adore your day job, that is good too—the hustle will offer a inventive outlet and a backup strategy. When you have far more than one particular supply of earnings, you are no longer dependent on a single employer. You will have significantly higher chance. You will discover new expertise. Oh, and you will also have … far more income.

It is also exciting. Beginning a side hustle is like “playing entrepreneurially” without having creating a enormous commitment. The stakes are low and the prospective is higher.
Essentially, it is a day-to-day podcast, typically much less than 10 minutes, telling stories about how people today have began and earnings producing project. It has tangible takeaways, and I am confident
How the method performs
The method of obtaining on Side Hustle college is quite uncomplicated, despite the fact that it is a bit time consuming and tedious. Very first, you have to start off by filling out this kind on the SHS web-site. Then it is the waiting game. If they consider you could be a viable story, Whitney or a person from the group will attain out to you straight by means of e-mail. Then you have to fill out a complete lot of inquiries – even far more than you currently did. They do not interview you more than the telephone, so be ready to create a lot. I wanted to give them as significantly detail as attainable, and I nonetheless really feel like they left some stuff out of my eposide. But you do not get to create the story, so make confident you inform them what you want and highlight all the very good issues about your project. Recall, you have to be creating more than $500/month to be deemed. They did ask me this, and fortunately the answer was yes. All by way of my Etsy shop which is so cool.
Once again, just answer them with your responses promptly and effectively. I wrote back pretty much right away, and I consider that went a lengthy way, and my episode aired quickly just after. Be on major of it and show you care. This a good chance to be featured in a really engaged neighborhood. My sales skyrocketed the day my episode aired!
Exciting reality: I did submit my story back in October in anticipation for the journal launch mainly because I knew I wanted to be on the show. I figured it took a couple of months to get in the que, and I felt so confident my journals would be creating me income! Fortunately they did. So it never ever hurts to place your self out there ahead of you are prepared. You never ever know what the subsequent couple of months will hold, and you will need to think in your solution or service ahead of any one else!
As the episode explains, I am truly functioning on new iterations of the journal as we speak. I am about 10 journals away from promoting out of my initial initial investment! Which is so crazy, and I want to make this an even larger and superior version two for you. Ideal now that indicates updating the top quality as significantly as attainable, creating the content material print just a small superior, and the most thrilling factor of all is the little ones version I am functioning on! This version is going to have maps to colour, various activities for little ones to fill out, as nicely as the glue dots, a pencil, AND crayons that make this exciting adventure for little ones of all ages.
