ABOUT ME

The path to financial freedom is a journey, so if you have had light bulb moment and want to start a side hustle, just remember you are not alone. Most people understand that there is money to be made on the internet and they start to look for ways to leverage modern technology. However, you will have to apply yourself.

So where do you start? This is why it is important to model someone who has already blazed that path. I started my journey in 2009, after multiple layoffs and the recession of 2008. Things were tough, and I started looking for ways to earn money online. It took me years of trial and error, but I have been earning a steady income online since 2015.

The best way to master something is to choose the most straightforward path to get you to your goal. When talking about a side hustle, the easiest path is to find a business model that is currently working and effective and then duplicate it. Because of this, the side hustles I suggest will save you tons of time, money and frustration.

Now you may already have a side hustle, such as a service or trade, or perhaps you are ride-share driver on evenings and weekends. You may have a valuable skill, such as culinary skills which allow you to start a small catering business. These are very good ways to earn extra money as a side hustle.

However, the goal is to master your side hustle, not simply just make a few dollars on this side and work 80 hours a week indefinitely. Part of this 'mastery' also means transitioning from your full time job to your side hustle full time, and allowing you to earn passive income. Let's talk about passive income for a moment.

When choosing a side hustle, I strongly recommend you think in terms of passive income, not active income. The key to success with an online business is the income has to be mostly passive and scaleable. That is how you make real money online and not as a ride-share drive, babysitter, a photographer and side hustles like that. Now there is nothing wrong with being a ride-share driver or personally providing some kind of service, if that is what you enjoy doing. By all means, do what you want to. However, wouldn't it be nicer to build income streams and earn money while you sleep? I think that is a fair question.
