The author of the New York Times bestseller The $100 Startup shows you how to launch a profitable side hustle in just 27 days.
For some people, the thought of quitting their day job to start their own business is exhilarating. For many others, the loss of a stable paycheck is terrifying. But what if we could easily create new income without giving up the security of a full-time job? Enter the side hustle, a mini-business that earns you extra money.
With Chris Guillebeau's step-by-step guide, you can go from idea to income in just 27 days. You'll learn how to:
- Brainstorm, borrow, and steal to build an arsenal of great side hustle ideas
- Apply 'Tinder for Side Hustle' logic to pick the best idea at any time
- Master the art of deals, discounts, and special offers
- Learn, gather, or create everything you need to launch and get paid
You don't need an MBA, marketing experience or big investors. With Chris as a guide, anyone can make more money, pursue a passion, and enjoy greater security - with little to no budget and without quitting your day job.
Like financial classics The Latte Factor and The Richest Man in Babylon, The Money Tree uses a compelling story with captivating characters to share its core insight: you are never at the mercy of fortune as long as you have an appetite for hard work and a willingness to step outside your comfort zone.
Jake Aarons is in trouble. He's being evicted from his apartment in less than 30 days, the bill for his $50,000 in overdue student loans is almost due, and the digital marketing agency he works at just implemented a new military-style grading system that might cost him his job. To top it off, Jake's new relationship with Maya was going so well... but with everything else falling down around him, he might lose her, too.
In search of answers, Jake reluctantly attends a weekly group meeting at the invitation of a coworker. Everyone in the group is trying to create a lucrative side hustle with one key requirement: they can only spend up to $500 before earning a profit. Over the course of several weeks, Jake undertakes a series of challenges, first learning how to make $1,000 in a single weekend, and ultimately how to discover the untapped skills he needs to take control of his finances--and his life.

From visionary social entrepreneur and lifestyle architect Chris Guillebeau, author of the New York Times bestseller The $100 Startup, comes a book about finding purpose in work and life by committing to a life-changing project or quest.
Chris Guillebeau specializes in helping people break out of the box of their everyday lives, sharing ideas on how to create income on one's own terms and not necessarily abide by a 9-to-5 corporation life. Now he goes a step further to help you find genuine life fulfilment by undertaking a quest or challenge that is big and ambitious, that involves surpassing the limits most people accept as part of their routine-filled lives and making an actual difference.
Chris has undertaken a successful quest of his own, having visited nearly every country in the world by age 35, but your own quest needn't involve travel at all. What's needed is commitment and progressive accomplishment, losing oneself in a task - whether it be a physical journey, an artistic enterprise, a philanthropic feat, even an act of political protest. Chris has surveyed thousands who've undertaken such quests and identified:
· How they went about it
· The common mistakes
· What happened when they hit the wall
· How they coped when the quest was over
The Happiness of Pursuit offers well-researched, easy-to-follow advice that helps readers bridge the gap between 'impossible dream' and 'everyday reality'. Your own quest can give you the self knowledge to find and live a more fulfilling life.
