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...

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.

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.

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! Abdel

Inspirational

I love the Pod cast and this book orders the process with the same humour and dreadful puns! I am inspired to go ahead and just have a go! Thank you Chris. As I said. Inspirational!

Side Hustle

I really enjoyed this book, it shows that with hard work and dedication you can build and have a successful side hustle. Chris uses many examples and talks you through their process. It is a practical and inspiring way of demonstrating how you personally can set up your own side hustle and potentially end up working for yourself. Time management is the basis of the side hustle, you need to be able to dedicate your time to your pursuit. You have to sacrifice a lot in order to build your business.
