Side Hustle Spark 185: Smart Hustle, Women on Business, templates, and more
Three additions to my Lists Page.
- The Entrepreneur’s Handbook: 120 Tools for Entrepreneurs and Startups (Note: Published 2015 with some dead links, but still dozens of sites worth exploring.)
- SCORE Resource Lists for Startups (Wide-ranging and practical, including templates for finances and bookkeeping)
- The Best Blogs For Entrepreneurs You Should be Reading (Ooooh, a few clicks on this page opens the door to tons of smarts and experience)
Some favorites that I picked up from these lists:
The Quora startup founders and entrepreneurs page (Click on the ‘Discover More Spaces’ link, as I was seeing a lot of ‘Elon Musk’ content right off the bat. Plenty to learn from him, but some weird, almost tabloid-type stuff being posted.)
Side Hustle Spark 174–: ‘The Playbook’
One of my favorite parts of curating is finding good new ‘stuff’. (Sorry, that word just works for me, no matter how inelegant or generically lame it sounds. Yes, it’s lazy, but hey, it’s one less syllable than ‘content’ and it covers a lot of ground. Okay, in the time it took me to–fancy word alert!–bloviate on that, I could have found a more effective word than ‘stuff’, right? Now that I’ve completely lost you…
It’s always a plus in my day when I come across a new voice with clear, often unique, ideas to add to the curation.
S. Anthony Iannarino of thesalesblog.com has one of those voices and offers this ‘side hustler’s playbook’.
Even if you’ve read or heard these suggestions, I think you’ll find the succinct explanations to be affirming.

Side Hustle Spark 157: $300 in 21 Ways (Brooks Conkle)
Yesterday, I posted a video reviewing a StartupNation post by Brooks Conkle.
The video promised a follow-up on Brooks’ $300 in 21 Ways post on his own website.
And here is that post, including his YouTube video version.
Side note: I had created a short video steering viewers to the post with a few highlights…and I saw how really non-helpful it was, compared to just directing you to the post-and-video, so I tossed it.
Bottom line lesson for me: Don’t waste visitors’ time.
Lesson 2: Good idea to curate/rethink my own work.
Hope you see progress today.
Side Hustle Spark 156: Use video to maximize valuable web content
A while back, I created a podcast [okay, an audio recording] for an audience of one–myself–to reinforce quality web content from Copyblogger.
Today, I’m posting a video in which I review a startupnation.com article by Brooks Conkle entitled How Multiple Streams of Income Saved Me During Covid-19.
Nothing fancy. Just a digital product you can make to conveniently–and effectively–revisit important content for yourself…or your customers. Added bonus: You’ll sharpen your production skills.
I hope this gives you a few ideas to curate for yourself. Note: Am happy to do this for you.

Side Hustle Spark 144: Check out Matt Brewin’s work
Matt Brewin’s https://likesinternetmarketing.com/ models his consistent, concerted effort to share a mountain of resources and content.
Added note: Judging by the front content, you would think that it’s a Dean Holland website.
Today, I’ll steer you to his Videos page, a massive collection of links to strategy-sparking, ‘kick-slackers-like-me-in-the-butt’ content from smart, experienced people.
It features nine categories shown above.
I followed his link to this free Pinterest course video and figure to pick up a few pointers about a tool that I continue to flail away at.
[Note: I don’t know Matt and am not a shill. I just finally spent time at his site and–once I got over comparing my piddly efforts to his–found plenty to share.]
