    Side Hustle Case Study with Anna Stroud - Episode 138

    Side Hustle Case Study with Anna Stroud - Episode 138

    Hear how Anna built her side hustle whilst studying at uni, and how she now generates hundreds of dollars profit every month with only a few hours work.
    Anna is a member of the Financial Autonomy community. Anna has been running a side hustle for several years and I was curious to learn how she had found it, what she'd learned, and her plans for the future - I thought what better way for me to get answers to all those questions than to interview her for the podcast so all you guys can learn about Anna's experience too.

    How to Start a Side Hustle in Australia - Part 2 - Episode 137

    How to Start a Side Hustle in Australia - Part 2 - Episode 137

    Part 2 of How to Start a Side Hustle in Australia - the first part was episode 135 so give that a listen before diving into this one.
    I’ve interviewed numerous Side Hustlers over the past 3 years, including Side Hustle guru Nick Loper from the Side Hustle Show, and have conducted my own fair share of entrepreneurial experiments. The time has come therefore to provide the definitive guide to starting a Side Hustle in Australia.
    A Side Hustle could be the way you earn some extra dollars to pay for an overseas trip. Perhaps it accelerates the repayment of your mortgage. Your ambitions might be grander, with the Side Hustle being your entrée into becoming your own boss and pursuing self-employment or a major career change.
    Side Hustles can certainly provide choice, and of course that’s what we’re all about here at Financial Autonomy. So how can you get started with your Side Hustle here in Australia?

    Author Lacey Filipich talks about her new book Money School - Episode 136

    Author Lacey Filipich talks about her new book Money School - Episode 136

    Like me, Lacey Filipich is passionate about financial independence and gaining choice in life. She's recently written a book, Money School, so I've invited her on to tell us all about it.
    Lacey shares her thoughts on how social trends, like conscious consumerism and sustainable lifestyle, have helped Financial Independence gain momentum, especially among younger people. We discuss how the trend towards the gig economy has made younger people interested in finding options to take away the stress of job uncertainty.
    She talks about changing how people perceive early retirement and introduces the idea of becoming time-rich. 
    We also discuss the common fear of "I've left it too late".
    I'm sure you'll get a tonne out of our chat.
