It seems like everyone has a side hustle these days, or is thinking about starting one. This is why I thought the perfect guest to have on the More Money Podcast would be Nick Loper from Side Hustle Nation. I met him after I spoke at FinCon’s Ignite last year, and I was in total awe of his podcast and the insanely loyal audience he grew. But the best thing is, he’s seriously the nicest, humblest guy!
Now, I’ve kind of always had a side hustle. It started with being a teleprompter operator for the news, PAing on film sets, then eventually I started this blog to see if I can earn some money. Well, after almost 6 years, I was able to finally turn this side hustle into my full-time hustle, so if you’re ever wondering whether it’s worth it to start a side hustle and spend some of your extra hours on building a side business — just try it. There’s no harm in trying a few things out and seeing if they work. And there’s no shame in failure as long as you walk away with a lesson learned.
In this episode, Nick also shares his personal story of getting his first side hustle and how he eventually became an online entrepreneur teaching others about how side hustles could take them to the next level with their financials. As I always tell people, at a certain point, you’ll find with your budget that there’s nothing left to cut out. And at that point, it’s time to start looking at other ways to earn some extra income.
