The author of the New York Times Bestseller THE $100 STARTUP shows how to launch a profitable side hustle in just 27 days.


For some people, the thought of quitting their day job to pursue the entrepreneurial life is exhilarating.  For many others, it’s terrifying. After all, a stable job that delivers a regular paycheck is a blessing. And not everyone has the means or the desire to take on the risks and responsibilities of working for themselves.

But what if we could quickly and easily create an additional stream of income without giving up the security of a full-time job? Enter the side hustle.

Chris Gullibeau is no stranger to this world, having launched more than a dozen side hustles over his career. Here, he offers a step-by-step guide that takes you from idea to income in just 27 days.

Designed for the busy and impatient, this detailed roadmap will show you how to select, launch, refine, and make money from your side hustle in under a month. You’ll learn how to:

•  Brainstorm, borrow, and steal to build an arsenal of great side hustle ideas (day 3)
•  Apply “Tinder for Side Hustle” logic to pick the best idea at any time (day 6)
•  Learn, gather, or create everything you need to launch; then set up a real life way to get paid (days 13-14)
•  Start raking in the money by channeling your inner Girl Scout (day 18)
•  Master the art of deals, discounts, and special offers (day 21)
•  Raise your game: improve, expand, or make more money off your hustle (days 24-26)

A side hustle is more than just another stream of income, it’s also the new job security. When you receive paychecks from different sources, it allows you to take more chances in your “regular” career. More income means more options. More options equals freedom. You don’t need entrepreneurial experience to launch a profitable side hustle. You don’t have to have an MBA, or know how to code, or be an expert marketer. You don’t need employees or investors. With Chris as a guide, anyone can make more money, pursue a passion, and enjoy greater security – without quitting their day job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Somewhat helpful his 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 person when it comes to figuring out what a feasible side hustle might be. If someone already has ideas though, and just needs some basic direction in order to get up and running quickly, this book could be really beneficial!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely Fantastic! I got this book with mixed feelings. I'm not one for self help but my own resourcefulness was failing me so I went out on a whim and got this book. I've been treating it like a textbook of sorts and it really doesn't take much time to do the activities or read through each chapter. I find it both entertaining, simple and inspiring. Definetly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Hustle This is a great book to put ideas into action. Thanks Indigo for hosting this event. I have bought 3 books so far and are giving them to people who I know need some inspiration. The book uses friendly language and can be used for any side hustle. This book speaks to all ages, cultures, and genders. It truly promotes diversity and inclusion in the business world. Thanks so much Chris!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Longtime Guillebeau reader I've been a reader of Chris Guillebeau's since his guide for world domination many years ago. I've happily read all his books. Although in many ways it largely reframes/repackages tips from his other books, this might be his most practical book. Maybe this time, I'll be able to follow through! I get so close then chicken out.

Editorial Reviews

“A Side Hustle isn’t about making a few extra bucks selling lemonade to your neighbors. Chris Guillebeau has created a step-by-step methodology for imagining, building, and launching side projects that can earn real, serious cash. In my years investing on Shark Tank, I’ve seen firsthand how side hustles can take off and grow into some major profits. Whether you want to supplement your pay check,  or jumpstart a full-fledged business, Guillebeau will show you how to get your hustle going in just 27 days flat.” - Daymond John, star of ABC’s Emmy Award winning business show Shark Tank   “The essential guide for anyone who wants to create more freedom, opportunity, and security by launching a profitable side hustle” On his popular podcast, Chris often says, “Inspiration is good, but inspiration combined with action is so much better,” and Side Hustle provides both. It’s packed with practical tips and strategies—illustrated by compelling stories of real-life hustles—that will inspire readers to start their side hustles now. “- Gretchen Rubin,  bestselling author of The Four Tendencies and The Happiness Project   "Chris Guillebeau is back with another book that will teach you not just how to earn more, but ultimately how to live better.  He says we can all benefit from a 'side hustle,'  work you we do in addition to our day job. And he shows us how to make it happen. In fact, if you follow Chris's guidance, you can establish your own side hustle in just 5 week. What’s stopping you?”  — Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of Drive and To Sell is Human   “There's a great temptation to assume that side hustles are just for "special people," like artists, dreamers, and 17-year-old computer geniuses. But Guillebeau deftly proves everyone can (and should) have a side hustle. More than that, he shows you how. He is living proof that this book works, and so are the many people who have followed his roadmap.”-  Jon Acuff, New York Times Bestselling Author of Finish     “Hobbies cost you money, legit side businesses make money.   If you want to get on the road to financial freedom and enjoy more passion and choice in your life, Side Hustle can help you take the first critical steps. “ Jessica Herrin, CEO and Founder, Stella and Dot
