There’s a serious problem with most popular books about entrepreneurship: they assume that all readers want to quit their jobs and go blazing into the start-up world. But if you have a family to support and a mortgage to pay, a job that provides a steady income and health insurance is difficult, if not impossible, to give up. Where can the ordinary person, who doesn’t have a million in the bank and an MBA to their name, go for entrepreneurship advice?
“A Side Hustle isn’t about making a few extra bucks selling lemonade to your neighbors. Chris Guillebeau has created a step-by-step methodology for imagining, building, and launching side projects that can earn real, serious cash. In my years investing on Shark Tank, I’ve seen firsthand how side hustles can take off and grow into some major profits. Whether you want to supplement your pay check, or jumpstart a full-fledged business, Guillebeau will show you how to get your hustle going in just 27 days flat.”
Daymond John, star of ABC’s Emmy Award winning business show Shark Tank
A July Bankstreet survey revealed a startling development in the American labor economy: 44 million respondents reported earning revenue from a secondary income source— a side hustle. For some of these individuals, having a secondary income source might just mean a second job, but for a large segment of these side hustlers, a secondary
income source opens up doors to the world of entrepreneurship. And starting a new business, even a small one, requires know-how.
“The essential guide for anyone who wants to create more freedom, opportunity, and security by
launching a profitable side hustle” On his popular podcast, Chris often says, “Inspiration is good, but
inspiration combined with action is so much better,” and Side Hustle provides both. It’s packed with
practical tips and strategies—illustrated by compelling stories of real-life hustles—that will inspire
readers to start their side hustles now.”
Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Four Tendencies and The Happiness Project

Jessica Herrin, CEO and Founder, Stella and Dot

“There’s a great temptation to assume that side hustles are just for “special people,” like artists,
dreamers, and 17-year-old computer geniuses. But Guillebeau deftly proves everyone can (and should)
have a side hustle. More than that, he shows you how. He is living proof that this book works, and so
are the many people who have followed his roadmap.”
Jon Acuff, New York Times Bestselling Author of Finish
