Inspiring and practical side hustle ideas

100 Side Hustles is the best side hustle ideas book for anyone who wants to start a side hustle without quitting their job.

What l loved the most are the inspiring and practical ideas Chris shared, with real-life examples of people doing them successfully.

After listening to this book, you will find at least one profitable side hustle idea that you can start right away.

I found more than one idea and highly recommend you get this book today. Even better, pair it with this book "Side Hustle: From Idea to Income in 27 Days" to make the perfect combo for your side hustle.

Roll your eyes puns throughout!

I'll start with the puns. My husband love puns and is quick to point out when I have unknowingly said one. Chris Guillebeau's puns are very endearing to me. I loved seeing Chris’s personality come through this way in the book. Content- so many amazing ideas and critical factors. Simply put strategic plans, makes me see how simple it can be to get started and succeed. I am inspired to be able to write to Chris telling him about my Sussex’s at a side huddle.

Best of his books

This is the 3rd book of Chris Guillebeau’s that I’ve read and by far my favorite. It made me come up with my own version of a side hussle I heard about in this book!

Much like the podcast.

Some of the stories you’ve heard but with a few new ones. I don’t know that there’s much more information than in the podcast; but if you like the podcast you’ll like the book.

The corny puns might make you twist your lips, but the information is real. Well worth the price.

This punny, informative and engaging narrative hits the mark!

This guys is a madman, which in Australia is generally a positive compliment for someone who is cutting edge. Structuring the entire book as 100 narratives of real work examples is brilliant, as it is incredibly engaging. I have many ideas and a new found inspiration. Thank you Chris, I look forward to submitting my future side hustle success story on your podcast.

Inspirational

Listening in Audible allowed me to incorporate the 3 Bs of Inspiration - Bed, Bath & Bus as I went about my daily life. Hearing people's unique side hustle stories is so inspiring, exciting and motivating. I now have really great ideas of how I can adapt what I've learned in a way that will work for me in bringing my side hustle to life. Thank you everyone for your wonderful stories and a big thanks to Chris and everyone you work with for everything you do. You all rock.

Captivating from the first word to the last

Full of great, actionable and easily implemented ideas. Reviews require fifteen words minimum so ignore this sentence, nearly didn't bother reviewing it at all...

Gets the innovative juices flowing

As someone that is constantly trying to think of ways to make some extra money, this book was great for hearing how others have been finding niches to exploit over the recent years.
I managed to come away from this book with some new ways in which yo find opportunities.

Well worth the listen!

Poor narration and US-focused businesses

Somewhat inspiring but I found it really hard to listen to this audiobook. Appreciate it's narrated by the author but it sounds rather cheap, rushed and you can hear echo in the background.. The author's voice simply wasn't the best fit for the audiobook. Also, it's really US business focused; as I'm UK based I found that it was quite limiting in the information provided.

Full of great puns and ideas

I love that this book is read by the author. There is a lot of information in this book, enough to warrant a second listen. The book has a huge variety of real life stories about people who’ve actually put their side hustle ideas into action. The book will inspire you.
