Full of great puns and ideas

I love that this book is read by the author. There is a lot of information in this book, enough to warrant a second listen. The book has a huge variety of real life stories about people who’ve actually put their side hustle ideas into action. The book will inspire you.

Best of his books

This is the 3rd book of Chris Guillebeau’s that I’ve read and by far my favorite. It made me come up with my own version of a side hussle I heard about in this book!

Roll your eyes puns throughout!

I'll start with the puns. My husband love puns and is quick to point out when I have unknowingly said one. Chris Guillebeau's puns are very endearing to me. I loved seeing Chris’s personality come through this way in the book. Content- so many amazing ideas and critical factors. Simply put strategic plans, makes me see how simple it can be to get started and succeed. I am inspired to be able to write to Chris telling him about my Sussex’s at a side huddle.

Much like the podcast.

Some of the stories you’ve heard but with a few new ones. I don’t know that there’s much more information than in the podcast; but if you like the podcast you’ll like the book.

A useful tool, even if you believe you have everything figured out.

I am familiar with the author from my past audible educational material indulgence and as no surprises me, this book held insightful accounts of real life success that has both enlightened and inspired me to continue my own entrepreneurial ambition. To the author and someone I personally claim to be my virtual success mentor, your experience and dedication to helping others succeed is beyond reproach. I am thankful for you and your mission. I cannot wait to see what you publish next. Thank you sir.

Excuse the puns

The corny puns might make you twist your lips, but the information is real. Well worth the price.

Inspirational

Listening in Audible allowed me to incorporate the 3 Bs of Inspiration - Bed, Bath & Bus as I went about my daily life. Hearing people's unique side hustle stories is so inspiring, exciting and motivating. I now have really great ideas of how I can adapt what I've learned in a way that will work for me in bringing my side hustle to life. Thank you everyone for your wonderful stories and a big thanks to Chris and everyone you work with for everything you do. You all rock.
