Rank #1: 159: How to NOT Let Fear Cripple You When You’re Starting Your Side Hustle (Side Hustle Series Part 1)

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode kicks off The Side Hustle Summer Series! This August, I’m doing a series all about side hustling and breaking down:

  • How to not let fear cripple you when you’re starting your side hustle 
  • How to build the foundation of your business even when it’s still a side hustle 
  • Everything I learned about balancing my side hustle with my 9 to 5How to market your side hustle for FREE when you’re just getting started
  • How to finance your side hustle before it’s making Money (AND how to start monetizing)

In this kickoff episode, I get open and vulnerable about my journey from side hustle to a profitable business and talk about the disparaging thoughts I used to tell myself. I was so afraid of people thinking I was a failure because I didn’t secure a job offer after earning my Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Michigan. I eventually learned that fear was holding me back, instead of helping me grow. I hope that sharing my thoughts and how I reframed them helps you change your thinking and kickstart your side hustle.

I’m excited about this series! New episodes drop every single Wednesday!

Rank #2: 63: How to Run Your Side Hustle in 1 Hour A Day

Podcast cover
Read more

Up until this year, the last quarter of every year always felt like the most stressful for me. This year is the first year that that's not the case for me. This year, I got better at getting things done, even under pressure. In this episode I’m sharing some of the biggest mistakes I made when I first started out side hustling and what I've learned from them.

It’s important that you understand where I and most successful side hustlers went wrong and what I did to turn it around.

These mistakes could have easily been avoided if I had only known how to create a realistic goals setting system. Now, I've mastered the "less talk, more hustle" approach, and it’s what has gotten me results.

I spend less time thinking and talking about what I'm going to do and more time actually doing it.

I learned to cut out all the fluff that makes you FEEL like you're doing something (to-do lists, buying fancy planners, well organized trello boards) and get down to business.

By making these mistakes, I also learned some key lessons as to why most side hustlers aren’t making the progress they anticipated. You’re probably not accomplishing your goal, because you bit off too much or not taking action because you want everything to be perfect and are afraid of making a mistake.

If you want more guidance on how to actually get things done, consider learning​ ​my​ ​signature Goal Getter Action Plan​. I can show you how to run a side business in 7 hours per week.

In this episode, I break down how you can quit stalling and make moves on  your side hustle. Listen through to the end to get more info plus an early bird discount code to my signature Goal Getter Action Plan for just $27.

Rank #6: Ep 118: Building Your Brand, Growing Your Following & Leveraging INFLUENCE w/ Brittany Hennessy

Podcast cover
Read more

Today in the guest chair we have Brittany Hennessy.

Brittany is a marketer and the author of INFLUENCER: Building Your Brand in the Age of Social Media. She was the first-ever Senior Director of Influencer Strategy & Talent Partnerships for Hearst Magazines Digital Media, and the co-founder of Carbon.

Before reaching out to Brittany, I read her book and I found it extremely helpful. This year, I found myself on the receiving end of more requests for brand collaborations, partnerships and influencer posts that I ever had before. I used the INFLUENCER book templates to confidently negotiate counter offers or decline opportunities that were not right for my business without burning a bridge. So, as usual, when I discover something useful, I want to share it with you guys.

I think that anyone can benefit from Brittany’s knowledge about influencer marketing. Especially if you have plans to build out and monetize your personal brand or ever work with another brand for any reason, for example having them sponsor an event, a podcast, a blog, or if you are invited to speak on a panel, this will be the episode to consult.

Podcast cover
Read more

Today in the guest chair we have Kendra Barnes. At the time of this recording, Kendra was an Economist by day and Real Estate Investor by night.

Kendra is now a full-time Real Estate Investor and Founder of The Key Resource. Her real estate investments afforded her the ability to retire from the 9-5 life at the age of 32!

Her key message to anyone looking to buy a home or a rental property is: “You don’t have hit the lottery or be left an inheritance to buy property. You can start with what you have right now. You are worthy of wealth.”

On today’s episode, we get into:

  • What inspired her to get into real estate
  • The mistakes she and her husband made when purchasing their first property
  • The risky move they took to make their down payment

Rank #8: Ep 88: Lifestyle Blogger Dayna Bolden on How to Turn Your Influence Into Your Income

Podcast cover
Read more

Today in the guest chair we have the dynamic Dayna Bolden. Dayna is a Lifestyle blogger and CEO of Bolden Creative Media. You may recognize Dayna’s face from her campaigns with some of our favorite beauty brands. On today’s show, Dayna will share how, by combining her passion for both beauty and fashion, she has built a strong following of engaged millennial women and an amazing social media presence, which led to major brand partnerships. As a seasoned creative director and content creator, Dayna has also captured the attention of major online and print publications, including ESSENCE and FORBES. One thing to note about Dayna, is that she has taken the blogging world by storm in a relatively short period of time. You’ll learn on the show that although she had started growing her presence before stepping out on her own, it’s when she truly invested in her personal brand that brands started calling her to partner.

She juggled a coveted career at Under Armour for as long as she could while side hustling as a lifestyle influencer, but finally stepped out on her own in 2017.

I can totally relate to Dayna’s journey of going all in on her creative passions and launching a business around her personal brand. Today, we’ll unpack the life and business journey of a lifestyle blogger and entrepreneur.

Rank #10: Ep 85: Danielle Leslie Is Growing Her Online Course into a Million Dollar Business and She Wants to Teach You How

Podcast cover
Read more

Today on the show, I am introducing you to my best kept secret: the woman who has taught me to turn my knowledge into a valuable, premium course.

Her name is Danielle Leslie and she founded Culture Add™ Labs to help companies and individuals uncover their Culture Add™ and launch profitable products online. She is also the creator of #CourseFromScratch, an 8-week online intensive that helps people create & launch their profitable & poppin’ online courses.

She has been an online marketer in Silicon Valley for almost 10 years and helped personal brands & influencers, including Guy Kawasaki, earn collectively millions of dollars by launching their online courses.

One of the reasons I wanted to have Danielle on the show is because her framework for course launches addresses our common human tendency to get stuck on the preparation part and delay your launch.

She teaches people like myself to not fall into the trap of creating your course content all before you’re ready to launch and instead, focus on what she calls the 4Cs. She breaks this all down in her masterclass, which you can sign up for at SideHustlePro.co/CourseFromScratch if you are interested.

In my own case, I have wanted to launch a podcast training program for almost a year, and I have been dragging my feet because:

  1. I was overwhelmed with the thought of breaking all of the content down
  2. I knew it was really valuable information that could make people thousands of dollars and thus I knew I would need to charge a premium price point (and I was SCARED to set that premium price point)

I turned to Danielle and with her guidance, I launched my podcast accelerator as an invite only program in February and it’s been an AMAZING experience so far.

What I’ve learned from Danielle is:

  • Focusing on creating a course that truly meets your student’s needs, means creating it with their active feedback, not creating it in a vacuum without their input
  • I’ve also learned that it’s not going to be perfect the first time you do it so you have to get down to business and start, so you can improve.

On today’s episode, Danielle gets into:

  • Her straight line to the cash formula that shatters the most popular course creation narrative
  • The tools she used to do a $20,000 course launch in 60 days with no email list
  • Her MVC method to not overthink your launch and to pre-sell your course
  • How her online course made $25,000 alone in one month on Instagram...and how it has exploded since then.
  • As this episode premieres, Danielle just crossed the $100,000 mark, her first six figure month. And in today’s episode, she breaks down how she’s quickly approaching $1M in revenue this year

If you want to learn how Danielle’s online course made $100,000 in one month alone from Instagram listen to this entire episode, and remember to sign up for her Course From Scratch class at SideHustlePro.co/CourseFromScratch.

Rank #13: Ep 78: Nicole Walters Wants To Teach You To Add More Commas To Your Bank Account

Podcast cover
Read more

Today in the guest chair, we have Nicole Walters.

By age 28, Nicole was a highly-paid executive at a Fortune 500 company, managing multibillion dollar accounts. But something just wasn’t right. She felt like her job was paying the bills and feeding her family, but not her soul.

So, live on Periscope, Nicole quit her corporate job to focus on opening her own private business and product development consulting firm, The Monetized Life. Through her programs and consulting, she shares her secrets to earning “passive income” with other entrepreneurs, including in her popular online course, 1K1Day.

Nicole has been on my radar for some time and I thought what better way to kick off 2018, than with a woman who is pushing the boundaries of entrepreneurship and redefining what it means to package your skills into services and make money on your own terms.

As Nicole says, she teaches people how to add commas to their bank accounts and learn that they don’t have to trade time for money.

On today’s episode, Nicole gets into:

  • Her 5 years of (debt free!) side hustling before quitting
  • Why she quit her job LIVE on Periscope
  • Generating $11,000 from a $12.99 product
  • The streams of income in her business

Rank #15: REWIND: From Drowning in Debt to Making 5 Figures A Month (Courtney Sanders of Think and Grow Chick)

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s Nicaila here with another special REWIND edition of Side Hustle Pro.

Take a listen to this best of episode with Courtney Sanders. This is one of my favorite episodes because Courtney is so thorough! She is an entrepreneur who started making money online by packaging her expertise in productivity systems and goal achievement and has impacted thousands of people.

But, even though she was starting to make 4 then 5 figures monthly in her business, she didn’t just quit her job. She planned it out, she was prepared and she really set a high standard for herself of what she needed to achieve before she would allow herself to quit.

So Courtney’s episode is one that I came back to many, many times in 2017. I would literally re-listen to it over and over again as I prepared to leave my job. 1) Because it was like talking to a life coach and 2) It was a reminder that I could not just quit impulsively and expect success, I needed to establish a plan.

In this this episode, Courtney breaks down:

  • The inspiration for Think And Grow Chick and when she realized she could help other women think and grow into their best selves
  • How she grew her company into a profitable business
  • How she juggles her side hustle with her full time job
  • Financial wisdom she has learned along the way
  • When she knew it was time to take her side hustle to the next level

I’m checking in with an update on all things social media marketing: Specifically, Instagram. I have heard many of you ask: How can I organically grow my audience on Instagram?

Rank #18: 76: I QUIT My Job

Podcast cover
Read more
A year ago, I made the decision that I need to work for myself. Today on the show, I share how I spent the last year gearing up for my quit day. I got laser-focused on monetizing my content. I explored multiple revenue streams. I got busy learning to be a sales team of one. I studied, I worked, I tried, I failed, I stayed determined.

And then, on November 29, 2017 - I QUIT.

On today’s episode, I share:

  • Why I’m betting on myself!
  • What went into taking my leap of faith
  • My plan to move forward
