    433: Simple, Local Cash Flow: Are Laundromats the Ultimate Side Hustle?

    Are laundromats "the ultimate side hustle," like my guest Jordan Berry described?
    These simple, local, cash-flowing businesses have been around forever, but surprisingly this is the first time discussing them in detail on the show.

    Jordan is a former pastor turned laundromat mogul. Along the way, he's become an advocate for the industry through his website and podcast at LaundromatResource.com.
    Jordan got the idea to buy a laundromat after his wife told him about a family friend quitting his day job in tech after buying one.
    It wasn’t just the income potential that intrigued Jordan. He wanted a business that would generate passive income -- and yield better returns than real estate.
    Jordan has been able to achieve both of those things through buying laundromats. 
    Tune in to hear:
    why a laundromat makes a great side hustle and investment vehicle some of the expensive mistakes to avoid where to look for financing and some creative marketing and monetization ideas Here's a look at the 10 most compelling reasons why owning a laundromat is -- according to Jordan -- “the best investment you can make."

    430: Built to Sell: How to Design a Business to Run Without You

    Service businesses can get a bad rap.
    After all, there are clients to deal with, and actual labor involved in fulfillment. They’re just not as glamorous as other more “passive” income models.
    But you should know that more Side Hustle Show guests started with a service-based business model than any other.
    This week’s guest has a unique approach to service businesses -- one that doesn't rely on your skills as the expert.
    Tyler Gillespie has built two successful service businesses and had a clean exit from both -- the last being just 13 months from startup to sale.
    Tune in to hear:
