I know you want to finish the line with…
🎶 read-ing rain-bow🎶
But seriously. Reading was probably the kick in the pants for me that got me really into side hustling. I mean, it was how found so many opportunities to create extra income. By reading. By learning from other people who were kind and wise enough to document their experiences so people like me could read and learn from them.
500 channels of just stuff television and I promise none of that is going to get you up the way or good book or article is. Shift your mind and turn a page.
Okay, this probably isn’t what you were expecting for a side hustle, but reading offers many opportunities… to create opportunities. I would say that at least 80% of the side hustles I took on and made some kind of money from came from reading. Reading other people’s blogs. Researching and reading ideas how other people were making extra money. Reading craigslist posts and seeing what people needed. I read on a very regular basis The Penny Hoarder.
Reading — yes, is fundamental– because it can create opportunities you had not thought of before. It can stimulate your imagination and creativity and help you produce ideas to improve the quality of your life.
I also read a lot of marketing books. Marketing is still very power in business and in creating businesses.
So, read. A lot. Start off with whatever interests you. Get those juices flowing so you make your money grow!
