One third of Americans turn their talents, hobbies and interests into a lucrative side hustle, a small business that generates income and maximizes a passion. In her new book, How a Side Hustle Can Change Your Life. What If It Does Work Out? author Susie Moore shares her experiences, expert advice and guidance on how others can do the same.
In her energetic and encouraging writing style, author Susie Moore guides readers of her new book How a Side Hustle Can Change Your Life. What If It Does Work Out?, through all the planning stages and potential obstacles of building a business from a personal passion. She shows practically how to overcome initial hesitation or fear, to creating multiple revenue streams and much more. Susie presents the inspirational stories from today’s successful entrepreneurs who built their businesses from small side hustles, including the founders of Spanx and MindBodyGreen.
At a practical level, the book takes readers through the process of finding the perfect side hustle, using the power of vision-boarding to brainstorm ideas and turn them into reality. She looks at how to plan and manage time when it comes to building a side hustle, and the importance of thinking big but starting small in the early days. Susie also shares her experience of effective selling, and how to use the power of self-promotion at the right time, ultimately leveraging personal talents and passions to make money.
Starting a business whilst employed allows you to determine proof of concept more safely by providing for a test run that indicates your side hustle’s viability. This means you can prove that your product or service is wanted in the world before you dedicate your full time focus towards it.
I bet you’re a lot like me; you just want freedom in your life and ownership of your work. We all want to make a meaningful impact in the world doing work that we love, on our own terms.
This book will encourage you to take the leap of believing in yourself, examine what’s holding you back, and push you to step up to the plate and knock it out of the park.
