The more I worked with it, however, the more I heard ‘the voices’: “
You need more updated content! You need more updated content!” Yeah, welcome to my world, where the voices don’t just talk…they sing. ;->
Anyway, some of the other link categories include: Content Marketing, Inspiration for Side Hustlers, Chris Guillebeau/Side Hustle School, Seth Godin, NIck Loper/Side Hustle Nation, and Blogging.

lists no-no’s to avoid in your sales/marketing strategies. Here’s his lineup, but follow the link for his insights on each marketing sin.
Jealousy You might notice that this was a 2012 post. Doesn’t matter. Still as relevant today.
Yes, it’s true. I’ve signed up for this before and haven’t followed through.
Completely my fault for allowing myself to be directed elsewhere and not taken substantive action via these folks.
So, don’t be like the ‘me of the past four years’.

Even Buddy turned away from his incessant begging gig to check this out. From Nick’s email:
“We cover how to:
— tap into the $2.5 billon freelance marketplace (where Chris himself has booked over $80k worth of work).
— set up your profile for success.
— create filters so you
only bid on jobs that are a great match.” Here’s to forward momentum!
Hope today’s post will help.
From Fast Company’s vast collection of informative and relevant videos comes:
Also from that collection is this ‘Hit the Ground Running’ podcast episode featuring Jasmine Lawrence, founder of natural hair and body care line Eden BodyWorks. (July 27, 2021)
Could your side hustle become a second career? (35 minutes) Jasmine’s main message: Side hustlers should view themselves as followers of two career paths. Here’s hoping you pick up a tip or mental shift that moves you forward.
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
book and it didn’t dawn on me that she should have been one of the first people this blog should have showcased. Everything is Figureoutable If I didn’t have to live with myself, I’d fire me ASAP.
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.
You’ll notice it is heavy on the verbs.
First suggestion: Have fun with this content. See what’s helpful, but don’t sweat over it.
Everyone thinks differently. Maybe hand this list over to co-workers/assistants to get their input.
Another suggestion: Revisit the list on occasion. Hey, minds change, approaches change, priorities change.
Possible uses of a list like this…
— Combine terms.
— Find common themes.
— Which terms appeal to sense of humor?
— Which terms communicate a more serious approach?
— Which terms suggest a goal or objective you hadn’t previously considered?
— Find all the terms that relate to ‘customer problems’.
— Find all the terms that relate to ‘solutions to those problems’.
— Find words from which you can use to create your own new words or phrases.
— Find word(s) that speak to pop culture.
— Pare down. Pare down some more.
— Even better…set a timer and give yourself 10 minutes to generate first-draft marketing or blog copy using list items.
— Can you create a slogan from chosen list items? Check out this link below:
I hope this helps, side hustlers. Let me know how else I can assist.
Good luck in your projects. Keep taking aim.
