    438: From Idea to 6-Figure Side Hustle: A Listener Success Story

    438: From Idea to 6-Figure Side Hustle: A Listener Success Story

    Anthony and Jhanilka Hartzog erased $114k of debt in 23 months.
    The couple were making good money at their day jobs, but realized there's only so much you can cut from your budget.
    That’s when they turned to the income side of the equation and started a ton of different side hustles.
    They picked up second jobs at their gym, rented out their car on Turo, dogsitted, and — inspired by my episode with Chris Schwab — they started a residential cleaning business called Maids2Match.com.
    Today, that business is doing $20-25k in sales a month, with other people doing the cleaning. Anthony and Jhanilka are fully in business-owner mode, dedicating just a few hours a week to it.
    You can follow along with their journey on Instagram @thehartrimony.

    437: Domain Flipping: $70k+/yr Investing in Domain Names Part-Time

    437: Domain Flipping: $70k+/yr Investing in Domain Names Part-Time

    Can you still make money in domain flipping?
    Last year, Mark Levine flipped 70 domain names, for around $160k in gross profit.
    Of that, he spent a little over half on renewal fees for his domain name portfolio and acquiring new domains to add to it, netting $70-80k for the year.
    Not bad for a part-time hobby!
    In his spare time, Mark manages a portfolio of 3500-4000 domains. That's not huge by domain investor standards, but still a good-sized collection.
    With established investors like Mark, I was curious to find out if there was room for new players to earn a profit. (Several Side Hustle Show listeners requested this topic as well!)

Practical, Inspiring & Entertaining

I’ve binged almost this whole series. It’s f—ing great! Cool stories. Great interview Qs from Nick. It’s inspiring educational and entertaining. I’ve tried to get into “similar” podcasts but to me they lack the flow and feel of these. (Their voices are annoying 🤷‍♂️) Thanks Nick!
