Publisher's Summary

The author of the New York Times best seller The $100 Startup shows you how to launch a profitable side hustle in just 27 days.

For some people, the thought of quitting their day job to start their own business is exhilarating. For many others, the loss of a stable paycheck is terrifying. But what if we could easily create new income without giving up the security of a full-time job? Enter the side hustle, a mini-business that earns you extra money.

With Chris Guillebeau's step-by-step guide, you can go from idea to income in just 27 days. You'll learn how to:

  • Brainstorm, borrow, and steal to build an arsenal of great side hustle ideas
  • Apply 'Tinder for Side Hustle' logic to pick the best idea at any time
  • Master the art of deals, discounts, and special offers
  • Learn, gather, or create everything you need to launch and get paid.

You don't need an MBA, marketing experience or big investors. With Chris as a guide, anyone can make more money, pursue a passion, and enjoy greater security - with little to no budget and without quitting your day job.

The podcast in a book. But nothing new.

After listening to the podcast (which I love) I was somehow expecting to dive deeper into the concepts. But instead I found myself hearing the same stories from the podcast and little else. If you haven’t listened to the free podcast there is great stuff in the audiobook...

Everything I needed to launch my ideas

I’ve read it 5 times now and I love it.
This book is for the person who has all the ideas and no idea how to put them into action.
What a stellar book.
I’m buying the hard copy as well.
Joining the community and actioning my side hustles.

Outstanding

Chris' book is outstanding, extremely practical, readable and very easy to implement.

First time I listened to this book it was merely out of curiosity. About 2 years later in a new season of life, I actually did what it said and started a side hustle. I am now doing private tuition in ESL outside my day job earning $270 per week. I don't think I've ever been happier or felt this confident. It has given me tremendous joy to start something myself and great pride in my achievement, despite all my doubts. And I'm so excited for what comes next. I have big plans and I can't wait. Thanks Chris.

at first I was all like..oh wow this is a guide for exactly what every hustler of a nutrition programme or life coaching goals business on Instagram does. And it is .. but also the stories and ideas are refreshing and inspiring and obviously this guy knows the formula. if you want cash....follow it

Poorly Narrated

Have had to stop listening to this book an hour in as it’s so poorly narrated by Chris. I just cannot retain the information.
At the beginning he was reading the book with no tone or emphasis where it should be. It improved after a while but then he started reading at a rapid pace. Still he was generally sounding bored of his own book and couldn’t wait to get the chore finished.
The content is ok and I would have liked to have completed this book. I’m not sure I will purchase the printed version however. Disappointing.

Inspiring & encouraging

This book & author/narrator grew on me as the book went on. I've since downloaded another book of his. Worth a listen!

Great book

He takes away all my anxiety when he talks about side hustles instead of becoming a muti millionaire in 3 days.

So inspiring and real.

I am going to download your next book now.

A poor sell.

Not what the title suggests at all, I wouldn't recommend to anyone.
Basic levels of side businesses that anyone would know about before reading this book.

Best action book towards entrepreneurship

I loved everything about this book. I “know” Chris from reading his previous books therefore I wouldn’t expect any different.

It’s a step-by-step book that will take you straight to staring a side hustle or full-time business.

This book helped me open my eyes in regards to how many side hustle opportunities are out there.

Great book!
