How To Hustle This Week: Ask people for feedback.

Even if your side hustle idea isn’t completely flushed out, start telling your idea to people you trust and ask them for feedback. This is especially important if you’re planning to sell a product or service because you’ll need to know if it’s something people will want to purchase. Without feedback, your side hustle won’t have the room to grow and evolve into the money maker you hope it will be. [Fast Company]

A Dose Of Inspo

Blogging can be a lucrative side hustle — if you’re passionate about your content and if you go into it with eyes wide open. Yes, it can be time-consuming, adding 20 hours or more to your work week, but you can make it worthwhile in the long run. Consistency is key and you can build a fair amount of recurring revenue if you try one or more options like advertising, sponsored posts and affiliate marketing, where you promote other products on your page. Each one works a bit differently, so do your homework to see what works best for your brand. [Ladders]
