The phrase “side hustle” has become such a buzz word these days, but I’ve learned that “side hustle” means different things to different people. I, personally, define it as a passion project you’d do even if you don’t make money from it. That’s how I got here with Side Hustle Pro. 

In this week’s episode, we look into how to figure out what your side hustle should be, right in time for 2021! For me, it took a lot of figuring out and stumbling, but I got it together and was able to cultivate it into what you see today. If I can do it, so can you, and I’m walking you through how to do it.

And it starts with these three questions:

  1. What am I good at?
  2. What do I enjoy doing in my spare time?
  3. What would I do even if I wasn’t getting paid for it?

I even touch on unlearning internalized messages we’ve believed about ourselves, and doing away with boxes we’ve been placed in, in order to succeed. Your 2021 side hustle is waiting for you to start, so go get it!

In this week’s episode, we talk about building and leaving lasting generational wealth in the African-American community. Dr. Pamela Jolly shares how our human, cultural, intellectual, social, and spiritual capital all play a part in the fulfilled life we should all strive for when it comes to wealth. 

She also explains how her various educational experiences and degrees (MBA, Ed.D, Th.M, and more) allowed her to assist minority business enterprises to grow, and redefine the way they saw money. But, her journey wasn’t always this stable. Her journey with learning about money started when her dad withdrew all financial support from her in college (á la Whitley Gilbert). It forced her to understand what money really is, and set her on the path to learning all about wealth.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

⦿ Why you need to have a good relationship with time to have a good relationship with money, 

⦿ How we can all begin to build and chart our path to wealth, and

⦿ The importance of understanding history as it relates to wealth

Whether you’re thinking about starting a podcast or already have one, one of the biggest questions that you might have is: “Will I even make money doing this?” And the short answer is: “yes!”

After a year of earning consistent revenue with my podcast, I was able to quit my job to focus on Side Hustle Pro full-time, all in the name of monetization. I didn’t start out with the mindset of making money off my podcast, but I quickly began to test and see that it was possible. Trust me, I secured a $4,000 multi-month sponsorship contract on my first try.

In this week’s episode, I help you set realistic expectations when it comes to podcast monetization. I also breakdown how, exactly, to make money podcasting, and how and when I started earning revenue. There are tons of ways to do it, and we’ll focus on the big three:

  • Creating valuable content for future clients
  • Developing products listeners love and need, and 
  • All things sponsorships

Have you been thinking about starting a podcast? Pondering on if it’s the right move for you? If you’re worried that the industry is too saturated, let me tell you...there’s always going to be competition.

If there isn’t any demand, you don’t want to be there. I want to encourage you that what’s in your mind hasn’t yet come into the atmosphere.

And that’s okay because podcasting is exponentially growing, and it’s going to grow when you release your show.

In this week’s episode, I’m here to help you figure out if it’s time to stop sitting on that idea, press record, and start the podcast you’ve always wanted to. Here’s a hint: you have to start before you’re ready.
