Hit me up!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written a post, but I have some really exciting news to share with you!

For the past couple of months, I’ve been working on a course with my good friend and business partner, Julie.

After countless 16+ hour workdays, multiple roadblocks, and a whole lot of grit, our Side Hustle Course has finally launched!

Let me tell you… launching an online course is a lot more difficult than it seems.

But after watching our beta testers run through the course and make money within the first couple of weeks, it was worth every second.

How Side Hustles Can Change Your Life

Cody with Roo

Up until a couple of years ago, I had no idea that it was possible to make money outside of traditional day job.

My plan was to find a decent entry-level job, score a couple of promotions (hopefully), and save as much as I possibly could.

That was… until I figured out the power that side hustles could afford me.

Side Hustling to Quit Your Job

After 7 months of sitting behind a desk working in corporate banking, I knew that I wouldn’t last forever (without going insane).

Between the long commutes, 8+ hour days trapped in an office building, the corporate hierarchy, and a whole bunch of other factors, I just felt so stuck.

Fortunately, at that point, I had been building up my side hustle income streams for several years and my monthly cash flow was starting to exceed my living expenses.

On January 31, 2019, I quit my corporate banking job.

Since then, my side hustles have actually started to earn me more money than my W2 job was.

If you’re feeling stuck, worn out, or sick of the daily grind, I can think of nothing better than to start building side hustles.

Every dollar you earn outside of your traditional job pulls you a little bit closer to freedom.

Eventually, you might even be able to replace your full-time income… or at least earn enough to transition to a lower-paying job with better work-life balance.

Side Hustling with a Day Job

Unlike me who would have done anything to escape my corporate job, my good friend and business partner Julie actually enjoys her 9 to 5.

However, that didn’t stop her from making over $40,000 last year with her side hustles!

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need dozens of free hours every week to start a profitable side hustle.

You can work with whatever free time you have and start to develop systems to ensure success for your side hustles down the road.

Julie didn’t always earn that much, but as she’s developed systems for her side hustles, she now earns over $7,000 per month on her blog, Millennial Boss, and $500 per month with her Etsy Printables Shop.

Between blogging and Etsy, she estimates that she works 3-5 hours per week.

Her story is important to highlight that side hustling is for everyone!

Whether you have 1 or 20 free hours during the week, there’s something you can do to work toward building a profitable side hustle.

What are the Best Side Hustles?

The Three Best Side Hustles

Although there are thousands of different side hustle to choose from, we decided to focus on three in particular for the Side Hustle Course.

Blogging for Profit

I never thought I was going to be a blogger. I always pictured a “blogger” as someone who sat in the corner of their mom’s basement and frantically typed into their laptop.

However, once I started blogging, I was completely addicted.

I was a) helping people, b) making new friends, and c) making money.

It was awesome!

The crazy thing is, it’s not as hard as it seems.

Here are some of the most common myths about blogging:

  • You need to be an experienced web developer or coder ❌
  • You need to be a subject matter expert ❌
  • You need to spend dozens of hours on your blog every week ❌
  • You need to be a fantastic writer ❌
  • You can’t make money in an ethical way ❌

Every time I ask someone why they haven’t a started the blog they’ve been talking about, I typically get a variation of one of the above myths.

In our Blogging for Profit Course, we take you step by step through the process of creating a profitable blog from Day 1.

You don’t need any prior technical skills or expertise.

Additionally, the course includes:

✅  15 info-packed modules with text and video lectures

✅  Bonus lessons on Facebook Ads, SEO, Pinterest, and Comp’d Travel contributed by experts
✅  Weekly assignments and printable lesson plans to keep you on track
✅  Free month in the VIP Facebook group for accountability & community
✅  Advanced modules for those who want to level up covering Paid Advertising, Virtual Assistants and more

During the weeks prior to launch, we had beta testers run through the course to provide us with comments, questions, and suggestions.

Here’s what two of them had to say:

“I honestly would say this course is for all bloggers, whether you’re at the stage of just thinking about writing for the first time or if you’ve been writing for years but want to take your blog to the next level. There is step by step information for setting up your blog for the first time as well as in-depth information on income opportunities, social media, and back end technical challenges.” – Angela from Tread Lightly Retire Early

“I have been blogging for a while now and I was able to pick up most of this information on my own. However, it took a lot of piecing together and was definitely much more difficult than it needed to be. This course from Gold City Ventures makes that a thing of the past. Rather than spending literal months scouring the internet’s vast – albeit disjointed – stockpiles of information, now you have everything in one place.” – Bob Haegale from The Frugal Fellow

The Freelance Toolkit

If you’re looking to make money fast, freelancing is the way to go.

It’s honestly never been easier in history to make money online with freelancing.

You can make money doing almost anything including:

  • Writing
  • Audio Editing
  • Graphic Design
  • Video Editing
  • Email Campaigns
  • Social Media Management

… just to name a few.

When I first started freelancing, I didn’t have any of the skills I just mentioned above.

Over time, I slowly started to develop a bunch of different skills just by trial and error.

If you want to get started with freelancing, the best thing you can possibly do is to just jump in headfirst.

It doesn’t matter if other people are better than you, smarter than you, faster than you, or more skilled than you.

I can guarantee you that there is somebody out there who will pay you for some type of freelance work.

In our Freelance Toolkit course, we give you everything you need to become a successful freelancer from Day 1 and land your first gig as fast as possible.

The course also includes:

✅ 8 info-packed modules with text and video lectures

✅ Bonus lessons on Social Media and SEO including interviews with industry experts
✅ Weekly assignments and printable lesson plans to keep you on track
✅ Free month in the VIP Facebook group for accountability & community
✅ In-depth tutorials on Freelance Writing, Audio Editing, and Graphic Design

During the weeks prior to launch, we had beta testers run through the course to provide us with comments, questions, and suggestions.

Here’s what two of them had to say:

“I always thought that you had to be a professional to edit audio. But, after taking the freelancing course, I was able to learn basic audio editing in only a couple of hours. After a bit of practice, I secured my first client only two weeks later! I can’t believe I’m actually earning money with a side hustle. You guys rock!” – Nick M.

“In each of the modules, Cody and Julie have included interviews with different freelancing experts. These experts provide detailed stories, advice and information in their area of expertise, and give recommendations to you to help you become a better freelancer. My favorite was the interview with Alex Fasulo, a Fiverr expert and freelance writer who made over $300,000 last year freelancing!” – Erik from The Mastermind Within

Etsy Printables

Although I haven’t personally ventured into the world of Etsy, my business partner Julie has been crushing it over the past year.

She spent less than an hour per week on her shop and earned over $5,000!

So what exactly are Etsy Printables? I was thinking the same thing when I first heard about them…

Basically, a “printable” is a graphic design that is offered as a download

Some examples include:

  • Wedding invitations
  • Templates
  • Worksheets
  • Calendars
  • Decorations
  • Artwork
  • Labels

… just to name a few.

The really cool thing about selling printables on Etsy is that you can create your printable, optimize your listing, and then just sit back and watch the orders roll through!

You may need to do some minor maintenance to your shop, but once your listings are up, it’s pretty much passive.

When Julie first told me about this side hustle I was a bit nervous because I am literally the least artistic person in the world.

Seriously, I have trouble drawing stick people.

But when I took the Etsy Printables course I was actually able to follow along and feel confident that I could make some awesome looking printables!

So trust me, if I can do it, so can you.

The Etsy Printables Course gives you everything you need to open a successful Etsy shop from Day 1.

The course also includes:

✅ 5 info-packed modules with text and video lectures

✅ 13 bonus lessons contributed by Etsy printables experts
✅ Weekly assignments and printable lesson plans to keep you on track
✅ Free month in the VIP Facebook group for accountability & community

During the weeks prior to launch, we had beta testers run through the course to provide us with comments, questions, and suggestions.

Here’s what two of them had to say:

“This course was different than others because it was exciting. I felt like I was in control of my own business and income. The course gave me the skills and confidence to use my creativity and harness some of my ideas to create my first printable. I’m only one week into the course and I’ve already created my first printable!” – Andrea S.

“My initial assumption was that you needed some graphic design experience to create Printables on Etsy. It was a little challenging at first, but after following along with the course videos, I was off to the races! I was creating multiple pictures for my listings and feeling really comfortable with the software. The best part was that all the tools I needed to be successful were absolutely free.” – Nicole S.

Are Side Hustles Right For You?

hould You Start a Side Hustle

I honestly think that everyone should try to start a side hustle at some point.

Not only will you increase your income, but you’ll also gain new skills and expand your network.

Side hustles aren’t reserved for the overachievers.

They don’t require dozens of hours per week.

You don’t have to be “the best of the best” to make money.

All it takes to get started is a bit of action and motivation.

You can do it.

But, if you’re still unsure about where to start, we’d love to help you with your first side hustle.
