From Idea to Income in 27 Days
Hardcover ISBN: 1524758841
The author of the New York Times Bestseller THE $100 STARTUP shows how to launch a profitable side hustle in just 27 days. To some people, the thought of quitting their day job to strike out on their own is exhilarating. To 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 even 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 solution for anyone wanting to make more money, pursue a passion, and enjoy the freedom of entrepreneurship alongside their steady job. Chris Guillebeau is no stranger to side hustles, having launched close to a dozen 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. A side hustle is more than just another stream of income; it’s also a form of job security. Because when you receive paychecks from different sources, it allows you to take more chances in your “regular” career. You don’t need entrepreneurial experience to launch a profitable side hustle. You don’t have to have a business degree, or know how to code, or be an expert marketer. You don’t need employees or investors. With Guillebeau as a guide, anyone can learn to build a fast track to freedom.
