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.

Sell your hair.

— Invest with LendingClub.

Here’s hoping you run across some helpful ideas, info, or advice.

Side Hustle Spark 264: Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch–abundant source of ideas, strategies

Fun stuff.

Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch completed its sixth season (eight 20-minute episodes) last December. The first five seasons consist of 12 episodes.

The contestants–usually four per show–have 60 seconds to convince one or more of the four seasoned entrepreneurs to join them in their ‘board room’ to further discuss their business and negotiate an investment agreement.

Here is the overview and cast of judges/investors.

Call it a scaled-down Shark Tank, but still with plenty of back-and-forth between the ‘pitchers’ and the ‘pitchees’.

Benefits:

— Get business ideas.
— Glean pitch strategies.
— Narrow (or widen) your own side hustle’s focus.
— Learn some of the lingo.

You might find your current hustle is either on the right track or you might decide to pivot. There’s value in either scenario, right?

Forge ahead, solos!
