This book is sooooo helpful!
on January 2, 2014
If you are thinking of starting a side gig to generate additional income this is a great resource. There are a ton of real life examples of people who have or are trying to start a side business doing something they love, some of which became their primary occupation, very inspiring!
More practically the book:
1) helped me think through my motivation for pursuing a side gig,
2) brainstorm ideas of things I am good at / interested in and people would pay for including ways to fit it into my already busy life / career
3) understand how to prepare and launch my idea including free resources to help me create, market and manage it
4) provided great information on utilizing social media as well as branding and pitching the side gig
The book also has a series of questionnaires and worksheets that are so useful when you start to take action. (e.g., a questionnaire to determine if you are ready, a worksheet to help you brainstorm ideas, another to create a plan, one to help with the pitch, another to help with the financial aspects, etc.).
Lastly, it has an AMAZING appendix of the top fifty side-gigs that includes a description, what type of person(s) each is best for, information and/or example(s) and resources for each.
