I recently had the pleasure to talk with Zach over at Four Pillar Freedom about all of the goofy side hustles I do and how I got started with them. When it comes to side hustles, I think I have a unique perspective because I’m not just talking about them – I’m actually out there doing them.
In my interview with Zach, I get into:
- How I started side hustling;
- Side hustles that didn’t work out for me;
- The best side hustles for people with busy schedules;
- And more!
It was definitely a fun interview, so make sure to click on over to Four Pillar Freedom to read the entire interview.
Zach: When did you first start side-hustling? Was there an article you read that inspired you to start, a video you saw, etc. that first started you down the road of side-hustling?
Kevin: My journey into side hustling began in 2015 when my wife and I moved into a fancy, luxury apartment that we’d snagged through a deal on Craiglist (basically, some guy had just signed his lease, found out he needed to move, and paid us to take over his lease). On our first day in that fancy building, we walked past a dumpster in the parking garage and I saw a nice coffee table just sitting there. I’d never really grabbed “trash” before, but this coffee table was in perfect condition, so I snagged it and decided to list it up on Craigslist for $25. It sold within a day. After that, I was pretty much hooked on trying to make some money on the side.
A little bit after that, my brother told me about an app he’d been using called Postmates, where he was basically delivering food to people around the city using his bike. It seemed perfect for me since I bike all the time. Plus, I liked the idea of being able to make money on my own time while also getting some exercise. In a way, it was like getting paid to exercise. When the delivery apps started up in my city, I signed up for all of them and started doing deliveries in my spare time and just had so much fun doing it.
