    1. Unfortunately this is going to be my first bad review. I feel guilty! I wanted to like this book. Who doesn't want to have an idea and create an income in 27 days? I wasn't even really expecting to do any of the suggestions in 27 days. I thought if the book could give me some good ideas for the next few months I would be thrilled. But the book has all the ideas that are regularly in my inbox. It's not anything new. It's the same game all entrepreneurs are playing to try to get ahead.Week 1: Buil [...]


    2. I aimed to get this book a few months ago, and it's my rezeki that I received a free copy from Pansing through Alyssa J. Oon. First, I have always prefer this type of non-fiction books where it gives you a practical step by step guidance that is easy to read and practical to follow. Even as I have done my own version of Side Hustle for the past 10 years, it is good to be reminded of the approaches, and there are new ideas in the book that I can use and implement. Apart from sharing practical ste [...]


    3. So, I'll start out by saying I'm a huge fan of Chris and his work. So that may color my judgment a bit.I'll also say this wasn't my favorite book of his.Side Hustle is fairly self-explanatory. The book is a guide to starting a side business, an outgrowth of the daily podcast Chris has been doing all year. I haven't listened to the podcast, so I can't comment on that, or how this book relates.To me, this book is classic Chris: inspirational, well-written, and full of excellent case studies. It's [...]


    4. *Thanks to NetGalley and Crown Publishing for providing an advance copy for review.This book was a good overall introduction to the concept of side hustles. I felt however, that it would be most helpful if someone already has an idea (or ideas) for a potential side hustle, as I didn't feel that the chapter on generating ideas was as useful as the implementation chapters. I would have preferred more information and examples regarding idea generation, as I don't feel that I'm the most creative per [...]


    5. If you're anything like me, any large scale life change requires thought, planning and execution. I'm not one of those people who can just jump into something head first with the "ready, fire, aim" mentality. So, that's why I appreciate a book like "Side Hustle" by Chris Guillebeau. If you don't know his previous books or have been exposed to his ideas before, sometimes he does advocate for a "just try something, what could possibly go wrong" attitude, but with a sustainable side hustle, it does [...]


    6. This book maps out a comfortable outline of how to take your ideas and turn them into a profitable proposition. It's easy to read and follow. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in following their ideas to fruition.


    7. Sometimes these business books seem like they are more interested in selling you on whatever "cult" they're trying to get you join (I see you "Rich Dad, Poor Dad") and this definitely ventures into that fray. However, it is helpful in brainstorming and thinking through methodically about starting a small business most of the time.


    8. While I would recommend this book to someone that never got too deep into entrepreneurship, and wants to start their own business, for myself I really wanted to like this book, but found the concepts in it too basic, and I was expecting a bit more. What I did like about the book were the anecdotes, the bias towards action, and the fun and practical tips!


    9. Loved it! Easily one of my favorites. I listened to the Audible version and also bought the print book for easy referencing.


    10. In this book, we get to know more about those people who take on an opportunity. This can because of interest, because of extra money, or just for fun. The book shares with us some ideas about how to make this a reality for those who aspire to do this. In full disclosure, I am not positive that I would be very skilled at doing that. But this book made me believe that I could possibly do something like this. I appreciated that the book was honest and gave you practical tips and advice. The words [...]


    11. A practical - and surprisingly inspirational - guide to getting a side hustle going. And Chris Guillebeau keeps repeating a few simple things: A side hustle should make money, but it's not a full-time job or investment.Do more of what's working and less time turning around failures.Done is better than perfect.And let's repeat that one. Done is better than perfect. So get going.


    12. Many thanks to Crown Publishing and Netgalley for the ARC! This book is simple, readable, and - best of all - entirely practical. I enjoyed the success stories and gleaned some tips helpful for promoting my own side hustle.


    13. You learn if you try things out. And surprisingly, many of those things can make you money.This book gives you a step-by-step process of how you can launch a side hustle. More income means more freedom. It's filled with examples of who have done it and how their processes were. You don't have to look elsewhere: think creatively and discover (with the book) how YOU can create a new income as well.


    14. Great framework for how to turn an idea into actionI thoroughly enjoyed reading/listening this book. This book is a step-by-step process that helps anyone take some form of an idea and turn it into real action. The author did a great job breaking down the problem into tiny pieces that can be solved one at a time (his plan is broken down into days).What I enjoyed the most is how the author provides a mental framework that helps people gain a new mindset that pushes them into action. He discusses [...]


    15. Interesting side-business motivational ideas backed up with outlier successes, but once in a while I'd like to read about some failures. How'd they cope? Adapt? Surrender? Compared to the people that succeeded, how many more didn't? A dash of reality--for perspective--wouldn't hurt once in a while.Overall, an underwhelming meh.


    16. This is a great book! The book, Side Hustle by Chris Guillebeau really walks you through steps to get you started in creating a job on the side that can help you grow income. There are steps to think about and help how to get ideas and thoughts flowing. I think it has some quite useful material and isn't difficult to follow. In 27 days of steps, it results in a fully thought out plan for a job.I don't think some of the steps may need to take days to ponder upon, but it's possible to take a few h [...]


    17. This book was great. The advice was informative, practical and straightforward. Best of all, the book gets right to the pointd it stays on point. Some books in this genre tend to read like massive infomercials. Even worse, some go off on tangents where the author is really using the book as a vehicle to promote a course or a workshop that costs thousands to attend or some multilevel marketing pyramid scheme. This book wasn't like that at all. It's a perfect primer for a gig economy novice such a [...]


    18. Everyone needs a side hustle. What’s a side hustle? Well it’s a moneymaking project you start on the side, usually while working a day job. A side hustle is a bit like a hobby but with one big difference, most hobbies cost you money while a side hustle puts money in your pocket. And here’s the good news. It’s never been easier to start your own side hustle.In his new book ‘Side Hustle’, Chris Guillebeau breaks down how to take a side hustle from the ideas stage to the income stage in [...]


    19. not sure anyone with a main job [and if you're unemployed it's not really a "side" hustle business you're developing] could actually get all this done in 27 days, but if you just think of it non-literally, as some consider the 7 days in which the world was created, it's a seemingly reasonable step by step approach to researching and launching a business. I say "seemingly" because I have no experience actually trying to do something like this. The book is laced with [mostly success] stories, some [...]


    20. being an avid listener of his podcast and after having done a lot of independent & lead study on entrepreneurship, i (arrogantly) didn't expect to get much out of this book - i actually ended up buying it only because i went to an event in my city on his tour and enjoyed the (free) talk so much i was like man i should support him. but! that's all beside the point. many people have rated this lowly saying that the information is super basic and also not "groundbreaking". i agree to some exten [...]


    21. [I write this review from the perspective of someone with practically no entrepreneurial experience or knowledge. I read Guillebeau's Born For This before Side Hustle, and I recommend this order if you have access and interest in what both books have to offer. The former is more broad in topics related to being fulfilled with one's work life, and the latter exposed how one can successfully make money on the side and potentially find financial freedom.]This book has great advice for starting a si [...]


    22. I've been a pretty avid reader of Chris Gillebeau since reading "The Art of Non Conformity". Since that time, I've always looked forward to his upcoming book, but have found myself increasingly disappointed in the books that he writes. I've always thought that he has a good message and means well, but in the end, the information is lacking.To be blunt, Side Hustle could easily be reduced by 1/4 by reducing the amount redundancy. And while the book provides some useful information for someone tha [...]


    23. Not sure what one is supposed to get out of this. Making some extra money by finding a side gig and having a main job? Sounds good to me. I decided on a whim to try out Guillebeau's book and see if it might give me ideas on how I could somehow find a way to make some extra cash while trying to hold down another job. Couldn't hurt in this economy. Don't have much experience with these types of books but Guillebeau lays out a plan for how one can take an idea and make it a successful side job f [...]


    24. Not everyone has the skills, the desire, or the courage to strike out on their own and become their own boss. There is a lot of risk involved in quitting the 9-5 and leaving behind the security of a steady stream of income to take the entrepreneurial plunge. The downside is that the day job might be leaving you with more month than money. In Side Hustle: From idea to income in 27 Days, Chris Guillebeau walks you through, step by step how to get some extra income on your own, without quitting you [...]


    25. Having read several Guillebeau's earlier books, including the previous "Born For This", I was curious what he had to offer in the side hustle category, another subject I have read extensively about given that I'm a bit of a side hustler myself.The book presents a step-by-step-by-step plan for you how to develop an idea for a side hustle, validate it and then build it into something lucrative. The idea is to have a functioning (and potentially lucrative) paid side hustle in a matter of five weeks [...]


    26. One of the things I love about Chris Guillebeau's books is the sheer number of examples and real life stories he shares of so many entrepreneurs - and not just the names you hear about over and over again on the business book and podcast circuit. He has a knack for sharing the stories of ordinary, every day people who have figured out a way to do their thing on their terms and this book is no exception. While I'm not sure I could get side hustle up and running in 30 days, after reading this I th [...]


    27. Quitting your day job can be terrifying. There are those who always talk about it but are too scared to make the move. There's a safer solution if you feel like what you're doing is not enough anymore - you don't have to quit your job to start a side hustle. I've been listening to Chris' Side Hustle School podcast where he analyzes success stories of those who started a side hustle. In the Side Hustle book he shows us how to start our own side business in 27 days.The book is divided into 27 acti [...]


    28. From the author of The Art of Nonconformity, The Happiness Pursuit and The $100 Startup, we have now in our hands a book that describe tips and share stories of similar ambitious beings who are earning extra cash while hustling. The book is an idea out of the popular podcast hosted by the author himself, Chris Guillebeau: Side Hustle School which is available both on iTunes and for Android.Side Hustle can be a great start for someone who is obsessed with idea of entrepreneurship or want experien [...]


    29. I’ll start by saying I really loved this book. If you’ve never heard of Chris Guillebeau, he’s a young guy who lives in Portland, Oregon who made it his mission years ago to visit every country in the world – while never holding down a “real” job. Yep, he’s always been self-employed AND he accomplished his mission and went to every country in the world!Several years ago, he wrote a book called The $100 Startup (which I also recommend) for people who want to become self-employed. In [...]


    30. I just finished Side Hustle in a fun 27-day reading excursion. It's a delight to read anyway, but if you're really looking to create your side hustle from start to finish, this is *especially* the book for you.* As a bibliophile, I loved the book itself. It has a great layout, style, formattinge whole shebang. It is reminiscent of his other books (so it feels like a "Chris Guillebeau book"), yet it stands on its own as a great work.* As a reader, I found Side Hustle fun and informative to read. [...]
