Everyone has a side hustle in them. It’s not as difficult as you might think to have an extra income stream or even two.

Is it risky? Of course, it’s a little risky. But isn’t this true of anything worth building? Without risk, there’s no reward.

Who hasn’t considered quitting their day job to become your boss? Or think about something you’re excited about and are good at.

I could do this thing on the side and make some extra cash. I should venture out and make a go of it.

You might also ask, what about the benefits my current employer provides — such things as health insurance and steady income? If you’ve questioned any of these points, maybe it’s time to entertain the idea of launching a side hustle.

In the book Side Hustle: From Idea to Income in 27 Days, Chris Guillibeau is no stranger to any of this. He offers a step-by-step road map to launch, refine, and make money from your side hustle in less than a month.

Guillibeau knows a thing or two about this. He’s launched more than a dozen side hustles himself throughout his career. He distills this knowledge and serves it up in a 250-page how-to book that walks us from idea to income in only 27 days.

When you build something for yourself, you will feel more empowered. You’ll gain a new sense of confidence and purpose.

You create more security, not only in the form of extra income but also in the future opportunities and relationships you’re unlocking.

Maybe your goal is to have extra cash to pay off a loan. You may want to start a vacation fund, save…
