So...this podcast gives you a “behind the scenes” look at the side hustles, start-ups and businesses that I have worked on over the years.
Showing you the pitfalls of starting and working on a side business, so you can learn from my mistakes and launch your own successful side hustle.
I’ve spent over a decade working on side hustles and projects, hoping to finally find that one thing that takes off. So I can leave the constraints of the “Rat Race”, the 9-5 grind. I’m not saying I’ve been successful, yet. I’m still trying to find my one thing.

    #56 - Getting your side hustle in front of people, as well as saving time and money using Sales Funnels

    You have got your product built and are working hard to get it out to the world.

    But, how do you get people to find, buy or subscribe to your product or service?

    It's hard, and it's getting harder and harder.

    One concept I started looking into around 18 months ago is the concept of 'Sales Funnels'.

    So, what are they and do they work?

    In this episode, I chat about my experience of trying a few over the past 18 months and how I've gone on with them.

    This subject is a strange one, it feels like the negative outweigh the positives at the moment.

    But, if I can "work this out", it will be a great way to get my software products in front of people. Without spending either thousands of hours or thousands of pounds in the process.

    #54 - The mind-boggling process of how to price your product from feedback that people have given you.

    #54 - The mind-boggling process of how to price your product from feedback that people have given you.

    You have got your product built and are working hard to get it out to the world.

    But, how do you price the product?

    This has been a huge headache for me. Since I first started developing Elementary Analytics.

    Everyone is so quick to give you their feedback. What happens with that feedback contradicts each other and you are no closer to working this out.

    In this episode, I discuss how I first priced Elementary Analytics. What sort of feedback I've been getting related to the price. And how I've gone about changing the product and pricing model off the back of this feedback.

    Sponsors

    With Elementary Analytics you can see your Google Analytics, Facebook, Instagram. And LinkedIn stats all in one dashboard. Allowing you to review how all this data ties together, and spot which posts are performing the best. You no longer have to block hours out of your week, to login to each platform. Export the data into spreadsheets. And perform the mundane task of collating and reviewing the data.
    Elementary Analytics does all this for you. We are offering a 30-day free trial, so you can register and start using our software no questions asked. We won't ask for a credit card when you sign up. Use our service for 30 days and only subscribe to one of our paid plans, once you are sure it's for you.

    #53 - Trying different side hustles at the same time to see which "stick" with Pascal Poredda

    #53 - Trying different side hustles at the same time to see which "stick" with Pascal Poredda

    In this episode, I'm excited to welcome Pascal Poredda onto the podcast.

    Pascal dropped me an email after listening to one of my episodes. I always ask for feedback and Pascal was kind enough to give me his thoughts.

    We got chatting and had a few catch-ups over zoom and it was great to hear Pascal has a few side-hustles that he is working on. Like me, he is still working a 9-5 and spends his spare time seeing if he can get a project off the ground.

    I'm impressed with what Pascal has put out into the world over a short space of time. We chat about the YouTube channels he has or is thinking about doing. As well as hosting a few podcasts of his own. Pascal is also building a software product, which I'm excited to see how it develops over the next few months.

    Thanks to Pascal Poredda for being a guest on the podcast.

    It was an honour and a privilege.

    #52 - You've got your first paying customer. What the hell do you do next to scale it up?

    #52 - You've got your first paying customer. What the hell do you do next to scale it up?

    You've been able to hit that first milestone. The most rewarding part of working on a side hustle. Getting that first paying customer.

    How do you get to the next level?

    It's hard, working 9-5, having something that could work and grow into what you want.

    What do you focus your attention on to grow, to scale? To continue to get paying customers?

    In this episode, I discuss, how I'm thinking about this in my own side hustle. And what I'm thinking of doing in the short, medium, and long term. To try and build on the initial success of my first paying customer.

    #51 - Having to pick between a 9-5 and your side hustle and be careful with your 'personal brand' with Chris Hutchings

    #51 - Having to pick between a 9-5 and your side hustle and be careful with your 'personal brand' with Chris Hutchings

    In this episode, I'm excited to welcome Chris Hutchings of eOpinion onto the podcast.

    Chris started eOpinion back in 2015 and always thought it forever be a side hustle. Bringing in a bit of extra cash each month, instead of his sole focus.

    Being torn between an excellent job, and eOpinion growing and demanding more time. Chris had to make a tough choice and pick between them. So glad he picked the side hustle.

    We discuss the positives, and negatives Chris has experienced with eOpinion. We also touch upon how personal branding helps you promote a side hustle, and how it can be a fine balancing act. Between being true to who you are, or turning into a "product".

    Thanks to Chris Hutchings for being a guest on the podcast.

    It was an honour and a privilege.
