    608: How to Start a Billboard Business: $30k a Month Part-Time

    Billboards are timeless.
    And they remain a successful advertising strategy even with the rise of digital technology.
    With that said, you probably never imagined that a solopreneur could rake in $30,000 a month from it (part-time!).
    But that’s exactly what Chris Brown from Signs of Good and wantmore.org has done for the past decade.
    Chris retired early at the age of 42 and now owns approximately 30 billboards around Bentonville, Arkansas.
    Tune in to Ep 608 of The Side Hustle Show to learn:

    how to find billboards for sale

    find places where you could put one

    how to fill that ad space

    how passive it is once you’re up and running

    Do you want to get rich? To build real, lasting wealth that can change your family's circumstances for generations?
    Prepare to be disappointed because there are no get-rich-quick shortcuts or overnight secrets.
    Building wealth takes time, discipline, and sustained effort.
    But the good news is you can absolutely do it, no matter your current situation or starting point. All it takes is following some proven rules and principles to put you on the path.
    I'm talking about 10 fundamental rules that will help turn your financial dreams into reality. And they come from my recent conversation with Robert Farrington, founder of the famous personal finance site The College Investor and a longtime guest on The Side Hustle Show.
    This conversation is based on his article 10 Rules to Get Rich and Grow Wealth.

    606: Side Hustle Stacking: How One Extra Income Stream Can Lead to More

    606: Side Hustle Stacking: How One Extra Income Stream Can Lead to More

    How can one income stream turn into a whole lot more?
    Simplify first, diversify second—that’s an idea I have always advocated on the show.
    The first step towards diversifying is to have something working. But how do you know it’s time to diversify?
    That is exactly what Bjork Ostrom (our previous guest from Ep 46) has done as he (and his wife Lindsay) masterfully “stacked” multiple online businesses that have developed out of their original food blog, Pinch of Yum.
    This 10-year-old blog has been a launchpad for Food Blogger Pro (a guide for aspiring food bloggers), Clariti (for optimizing your site's content), and the holding company, TinyBit.
    And this is the framework he uses to decide if an idea is worth pursuing.

    GH: How to Start a Service Business to Replace Your Income, Step-by-Step

    GH: How to Start a Service Business to Replace Your Income, Step-by-Step

    Starting a service business on the side is one of the fastest ways to build extra income. It's flexible, low-overhead, and you can probably start with skills you already have.
    “I had a lot of drive underneath me," Abbey Ashley told me, about starting her service business back in 2013. "I was super pregnant and I hated my job so much,”
    Abbey started offering her services as a virtual assistant, and connected with her first clients at local networking events in Washington, DC. My the time her maternity leave was up--just a few short months--Abbey had booked enough work to not have to go back to that job she hated.
    On top of that, she only had to work 20 hours a week to do it, and could work from home.
    There are almost no barriers to entry to starting a freelance service business, and the startup costs are minimal. (All Abbey did was make business cards for networking.)
    In fact, it was a service business, a house painting business in my case, that was one of my first entrepreneurial adventures.
    Over time, Abbey scaled her virtual assistant business from just herself at $20-30 an hour, to her own little virtual agency, to $75 an hour and up for some specialized work.

    605: Blogging in a Post-HCU World: The Savvy 7-Figure Online Business

    605: Blogging in a Post-HCU World: The Savvy 7-Figure Online Business

    Google's Helpful Content Update (HCU) hit a lot of online businesses hard with its new update.
    Even well-established and authoritative websites experienced a significant drop in their rankings.
    That's why I went behind the scenes with Kelan Kline from The Savvy Couple, whose online blogging side hustle did well even after the update.
    Kelan built his online business up from making $50 in the first year to now seeing around 500k pageviews a month. That led to his online business making seven figures last year.
    Tune in to Episode 605 of the Side Hustle Show to learn:

    Strategies for creating content that resonates with Google's algorithm changes

    Ways to diversify traffic sources beyond just Google search

    Tools/tech for content creation, email marketing, monetization, and more.

    Corey got started in early 2019 and went full-time with his unique wholesale business model by mid-2020.
    He's since built a multi-million-dollar business buying brand-name inventory at wholesale prices and reselling it on Amazon at a profit.
    In this episode, Corey shares his best tips and insights featured in his book, The 5 Pillars of Amazon Wholesale and his free Wholesale Challenge training.

Life-Changing

Nick Loper’s show changed my life. Not only is it super entertaining, informative, and addictive…but I actually changed my career from it! I found Nick’s show and binged it over the Winter of 2021. Whether it was Print on Demand, Children’s Books, Laundromats, Government Contracts, or online Entrepreneurship - I couldn’t stop! Eventually Nick’s show drove me into course creation and online memberships, which is where I’ve shifted my career. It’s been a long journey but I couldn’t be happier that I stumbled into this gem all those years ago. Forever a fan!
