    527: The Backyard Nursery Side Hustle (Plus the Benefits of Working in Public)

    527: The Backyard Nursery Side Hustle (Plus the Benefits of Working in Public)

    Today I’ve got an awesome story for you — on the one hand, it’s about matching your interests and skills with a hungry market, but maybe more importantly it’s about documenting your work.
    When you do those two things, like Craig Odem has, you start to see some fun results.
    I found Craig through the Side Hustle Nation Facebook group; he’s a pastor in Tennessee but as a side hustle he sells plants out of his backyard.
    Craig’s backyard nursery does around 10k in sales every year, which is awesome.
    But where things get even more interesting is when you factor his Savvy Dirt Farmer YouTube channel.
    Craig started his YouTube channel in early 2021. It’s already hit 1 million views and is starting to bring in some pretty significant revenue on its own via multiple revenue streams.
    Tune in to The Side Hustle Show interview to hear:

    526: How a Self-Published Book Turned into a Full-Time Business

    526: How a Self-Published Book Turned into a Full-Time Business

    This week’s episode is about self-publishing, which we’ve covered before. But this week’s guests have turned the success of their book into a full-time business that’s still growing in momentum.
    In late 2020, Justin and Alexis Black self-published their first book Redefining Normal: How Two Foster Kids Beat The Odds and Discovered Healing, Happiness and Love.
    Redefining Normal currently has over 200 reviews on Amazon and has sold more than 9,000 copies in the two years since it was published.
    That’s an accomplishment in itself for a title that’s kind of categorized as a memoir, where typically unless you’re already famous, nobody’s buying your memoir.
    In addition to book sales, Justin and Alexis are also doing workshops, keynote speeches, and other paid gigs related to the content of their book.
    So, in this episode we’re going to dive into everything Justin and Alexis did to set the book up for success, and how you can borrow the same tactics for your own side hustle.
    Tune in to The Side Hustle Show interview to hear:
    where the inspiration to write Redefining Normal came from how Justin and Alexis build and used a launch team how they’ve created several other revenue streams Full show notes

    524: How to Make Money with a Small Podcast

    Megan Champion is a mom of 3, a 15-year elementary education teacher, and in the past year, she’s started a side hustle that has brought in $20,000.
    Megan’s side hustle is in the parenting niche and has 3 main parts:
    An Instagram account to drive awareness
    A podcast called On The Hard Days to drive connection
    And a paid membership to drive community — and recurring revenue.
    In this episode, you’ll learn how all three of those work and how they work together to build Megan’s business — and how you may be able to apply some of the same strategies to your own business.
    The exciting thing here is that the audience numbers that Megan shares aren’t huge, but they’ve still been enough to build a pretty substantial extra income stream and help a lot of people at the same time.
    Tune in to The Side Hustle Show interview to hear:
    how and why Megan had the idea to start a podcast and paid membership the ways she has leveraged a small but dedicated social media audience how Megan validated her membership idea and launched it Full show notes

Came over after hearing Nick on just dumb enough. This guy is such a ball of sunshine that it doesn't even feel like learning!

My Morning Motivation

I’ve been listening for over a year now and gone through much of Nick’s back catalog. Nick has a humble and appealing delivery style. He brings on lots of interesting guests from varied backgrounds. And even when the topic is something that doesn’t apply to me, I always wind up learning something new. It gets me motivated to keep working towards my goals every time I listen, no matter what the subject.
