From Nick’s email:
“We cover how to:

— set up your profile for success.
— create filters so you only bid on jobs that are a great match.”
Here is Chris’s first chat with Nick Loper–From ‘No Skills’ to 3K a Month on the Side–the most downloaded episode of 2020.
Here’s to forward momentum!
Hope today’s post will help.
Hubspot’s Matthew Brown posted this on August 3:
Key learnings from this post:
— In the formation stage, the team listened to 20 high-performing business podcasts. From that research, they gained four insights, including:
** 87% of the hosts were male.
** Very few shows used audience engagement tactics to connect host with listeners.
— “After exploring various formats, we went with a hybrid format — Chat Cast + Interview.”
— “Engineers perfect the sound of your show.”
— There are eight key components to a podcast team:
Yes, for most of us, eight key roles…oy! But at least learning why these are important can help you prioritize as you plan for and build your own podcast.
I hope this helps as you explore reaching your audience via audio.
How could I?
I merrily traipse along sharing good side hustler stuff with you and it took me 280+ posts before I shared something from Marie Forleo?
I’m even reading her Everything is Figureoutable book and it didn’t dawn on me that she should have been one of the first people this blog should have showcased.
If I didn’t have to live with myself, I’d fire me ASAP.
Apologies done, let’s move on to her 322+ FREE Business Tools & Resources.
She shares resources via 9 categories, each of which could qualify as an online course.
1. Make a Plan
2. Create a Website
3. Design Your Website, Logo & More
4. Support Your Customers
5. Market Your Business
6. Collaborate With Your Team
7. Be More Productive
8. Manage Your Business
9. Learn New Things
She also offers this massive blog post in spreadsheet format.

1. Sign up
2. Receive lessons/content via audio and text message–everyday for 21 days.
3. Start your side hustle.
Entrepreneur’s R.L. Adams checks in with his 50 Profitable Side Hustle Ideas. Note: I just realized over a year ago I’d recommended you follow Robert’s work. It’s almost as if I know what I’m talking about…but we all know that can’t be, right? ;-]
While many of the ideas might sound familiar, Adams adds a related link for each of the list items. That multiplies the value of this post, so it’s well worth your time to click-and-read.
Some new-to-me ideas from the list I hadn’t considered:
— Do micro-jobs on Mechanical Turk.
— Produce an audiobook.
— Invest with LendingClub.
Here’s hoping you run across some helpful ideas, info, or advice.

Just passing along more helpful content from ryrob.com.
This post incorporates both Ryan’s 21 Blogging Tips from a Blogger Who Makes $30,000 a Month YouTube video and a collection of blogging wisdom from many others.
Challenge: Find three pieces of applicable advice shared by those folks.
I liked some of his summarizing points:
“Treat your blog like a business.”
“Take the tips that sound right to you and apply them…pick up what does work for you, what sounds most genuine…and relates to where you’re at in your blogging stage today.”
“Take the mindset of experimentation…and if something is getting results, double down on that.”
Side benefit of this post: You will most likely hear of new blogs that will benefit you.
