Want to Launch a Side Hustle?
One of the biggest hurdles I see and hear from couples in the community about why they're not able to pay down their debt, save or invest more is that they don't really have a lot of buffer in their budget. They just don't have that extra cash to put towards their goals.
Typically, when you look at the numbers, there are a few ways that you can optimize your budget and cut down on some expenses, maybe negotiate some better deals on some bills. Sometimes, though, it isn't just a spending issue. It's an income issue.
After your worked a full-time job, Most people I know aren't necessarily looking to take on a second one and being tied down to another fixed schedule for so-so pay.
Is there a way for you to earn more, maybe on the side, that caps into one of your talents and can you use that income to either grow your emergency fund, knock out some of, knock out some or all of your debt, and explore a new career?
If you've been online for any amount of time, you've probably heard the idea of starting a side hustle. But I'm not talking about what you see typically in social media where people are practically bragging about how many hours they are putting in.
If that works for them. Great.
Today I'm going to be talking about starting a side hustle that is sustainable. That means that you're not focused just on the hours you're putting in, but you're thoughtfully planning out the process so that you're making an impact, building some income, and still have a life.
Which is why I'm so happy to pull from the archive in interview I had with Chris Guillebeau.
He's a serial entrepreneur, host of the Side Hustle School Podcast, and author of several books.
