Are you looking for a side hustle that will generate cash flow? Or, maybe you want to build a business on the side that can lead you to eventual freedom? Our guest may be able to help you with that.
Tune in as Nick Loper from SideHustleNation.com joins us to talk about side hustling your way to freedom so you can escape the rat race!
One reason I advocate the side hustle is to build something up on the side. I would not recommend jumping off the cliff without a parachute and trying to figure out how to replace that income on your way down.
Nick is an entrepreneur that’s involved in a variety of projects but his main purpose in life is to help you earn more money, pay off debt, learn new skills, use your free time more productively, and escape the rat race.
He is also the host of the top-rated podcast, The Side Hustle Show, which focuses on ideas, actions, and results you need to start and grow a successful business.
Plus, Nick wrote, The Progress Journal: A Simple Daily Planner To Make Meaningful Progress on Your Most Important Work and in today’s show we talk about his journal, why Nick wrote it, and what his most important work is.
We also go over some of Nick’s favorite side hustles which he breaks down into three sale categories:
Is Affiliate Marketing Dead?
Scott brings up the subject of affiliate marketing and asks Nick if it’s dead because it’s “old and antiquated”.
“You guys are selling dirt. That’s like the oldest business on the planet.”
Touché Nick, touché.
The guys also discuss the one thing that could stop an aspiring entrepreneur dead in their tracks, and that is FEAR!
Whether it’s fear to leave the comfort of a paycheck, or fear to scale, fear is what stops so many from fulfilling their entrepreneurial dreams as Scott points out in one case.
Nick also answers these questions:
- What is the worst advice seen or heard in the Side Hustle world?
- What were the steps that led into creating the Side Hustle Nation?
Then, he poses a question back to Mark & Scott…
How do you justify spending time trying to build a business with limited hours that are supposed to be family time in the name of hopefully having more family time down the road?
Find out how they answered, and more, in this week’s episode of The Art of Passive Income!
TIP OF THE WEEK
Scott: Check out the book by Mike Michalowicz, Clockwork: Design Your Business to Run Itself.
Nick: The most effective thing that I have done over the years has been to stack all my calls, meetings, and recordings onto one day of the week. It frees up bigger blocks of time the rest of the week to make meaningful progress on the most important tasks.
Isn’t it time to create passive income so you can work where you want, when you want and with whomever you want?
