I was recently looking for YouTube videos for side hustlers and up came Daniel Pink’s four minutes on How to Persuade Others with the Right Questions video from the Big Think channel.
Key point: “When people have their own reasons for doing something–not yours!–they believe those reasons more deeply and adhere to the behavior more strongly.”
In a side hustling context, say a potential customer is an almost lost cause. Ask him/her ‘What would it take for you to at least hear a 10-second pitch from me?’ or ‘What is the biggest obstacle to your considering my request?’.
This post contains one affiliate link. If you use the link to buy the Daniel Pink book, I will earn a commission and I’ll be that much closer to buying that unclaimed island in the Caribbean. Thanks. Please don’t ask for the island’s coordinates. It’s mine and you can’t have it.
And now, time for book recommendations…or shameless commercialism…or both. Okay, there are definitely book recommendations…
These seven books are go-to sources of inspiration and valued experience. These are affiliate links which, if you use to preview and buy the product, won’t raise the product’s price and will earn me a commission. At that point, I’ll be that much closer to buying that unclaimed island in the Caribbean. Please don’t ask for the island’s coordinates. It is mine and you can’t have it. ;->
Replays will be available until November 30 at midnight EST.
Quote from the Discover by Teachable FAQ page: “The promotions and bonuses from participating creators will be available from November 17 to November 30 at midnight EST. We will be sending out the link to the promotions to registrants of any of the workshops.”
Hope you get something helpful from Discover by Teachable.
I’ll try to take some notes from sessions. If you have a specific request, email me at:

Another reminder: No affiliate links. Just want to pass along good stuff for side hustle-preneurs. [Again, Tim, soooooo weak. I’m sure someone has already ‘hybridized’ those terms.]
Just a thought: While you may have an entirely different approach to side hustle success, you have to give Chris credit for his versatile and ever-evolving strategies to reach listeners/viewers/readers. He IS a prime model for this niche.
