online side hustles

Finding online side hustles that actually work (2019)

Finding online side hustles that actually work (2019)

If you want to identify online side hustles that actually work its’ best to look at those categories which have stood the test of time online. So what are those categories?

Research has shown there are five main categories which have proven successful for people to start their own side hustle.

Gigs.

This is by far the easiest and cheapest category to start because you don’t need to create your own product because it’s you. Search for freelance sites, there you’ll find they have hundreds of mini projects or task-based work (often referred to as ‘gigs’) that you can pitch for. All you need to do is to find the gigs that match your own skills and submit your proposal thereby getting people to pay for your services.

Affiliates, partners, joint ventures.

This is an almost free online side hustle, again because you don’t need your own product. Affiliation, partnering or JV ’s is all about promoting others’ products that you know and trust. Although you don’t need to develop a product you will need to build an audience, most likely through social media, blogging or review sites or videos so that people will act on your recommendation.

E-commerce.

Unless you live on a desert island, almost everyone knows about e-commerce. In its simplest form it’s opening a retail business online. There are many courses that you can invest in, there’s also an abundance of free tutorials and online courses available if you know where to look.

3640330_1552483754UYXgigs.jpeg

One of the main issues of running an e-commerce business is managing all the various parts of the business such as branding, marketing, getting products to the customers, and keeping control of stock to name but a few.

Sites like Amazon and Shopify make this look easy and when you scale up your e-commerce business it’s possible to automate pretty much the full end-to-end business model.

Courses and programs.

Information products can be a great side hustle that over time can become your full-time income stream. It takes time to be established and it’s important your potential customers recognise and associate you as an expert in the information you are promoting.

Your course should demonstrate and deliver the solution that your audience struggles with. Get this right and you will have an evergreen source of income.

SaaS.

SAAS or software as a service is essentially the development of a software application that can be used offline or online. It’s a program that helps to solve a problem or help to leverage specific other resources.

A great example of a SAAS is Sumo, which helps solve the problem of generating leads for businesses. The hardest part of running a SaaS business is to stay competitive because frankly, anyone can just copy your software idea nowadays.

These are the main categories where you will find a good audience reach for your side hustle. They each require different resources, skill sets, and experience.

If you haven’t yet decided on your side hustle but want to make money from it quickly. Then the easiest one to start will be offering a service or services, by way of Gigs.

5 Business Coaching Tips for Newbies (2019)

5 Business Coaching Tips for Newbies (2019)

When you start out on the long road to running a successful business, be it online or from your own home, you’ll come across challenges and personalities you’ll wish you could have avoided.

3585987_1552021906grCbusiness_coaching.j

But after all, everyday’s a school day and there are always life lessons to be learned.

I thought I’d share with you some “coaching tips for newbies” things I wish I’d known when starting out….

Overcoming adversity, through tenacity.

Ploughing through adversity is one of the very best personal development experiences I’ve had. I always used to put my ‘never give up’ attitude to me just being pig-headed. But no, it turns out it’s a very good personal skill to have, I only discovered later that what I thought was being a bit stubborn – not letting go until something is either done or broken, is actually tenacity.

Everyone starting their own enterprise goes through some degree of hardship, the more you do and the more you don’t stop will build valuable personal and professional skills.

Tenacity, perseverance, adapting to and managing change, agility, resilience, humility and grit all help to equip you for success. 

Take time to think – but don’t procrastinate

Thinking time, you need this, especially in the early days/weeks/months of starting your business. Go for a walk sometimes, just to clear your head before taking action can even help you see a different way of approaching a situation or a perceived blocker.

But be careful that you don’t let thinking turn into non-action.

There are many ways to procrastinate so be aware and conscious of what you are focussing on and what your end-game is.

We are all in the values business.

There’s a saying, people don’t care what you know (or offer) until they know how much you care. Taking a look at your business and knowing what it offers is just one side.

Try to think of your business from that of your ideal customer. Look at what he/she wants to receive, how they feel when their desires are met, conversely – when they aren’t. What value do your customers place on the different channels or services that you offer?

Find and nurture your best talent.

I don’t mean talent in a team / network way, although that is important as you grow. No, I mean your personal talent. Are you good at writing, do you prefer one-to-one meetings, telephone, maybe you enjoy being in front of a camera?

These are all talents, some lend themselves better to your enterprise than others. Some work better as a channel for you to find customers.

Find your talent and build on it.

The final tip I can give for now is

finding a small group of good people who can help you build your team.

These can be assistants, part-time help, friends or mentors. People you know, some you may have to pay, others will volunteer their time and skills for you – depending on your relationship.

Pick people who want you to succeed, keep away from negative people and doomsayers. Build a team of positive influence and your business will almost certainly succeed.

top side hustlev

8 Top Side Hustles That Don’t need a computer (2019)

Here’s my top 8 side hustles that you don’t need a computer for in 2019.

Are you looking for the perfect side hustle?

If you are, then you have come to the right place.

I guess if you’re reading this article, then you already know what a side hustle is – right? No? Well here’s a short explanation.

A side hustle is just another name for a business you run in your own time whilst still having a fulltime job, or existing full time business. Side hustles are not the exclusive right of the employed, side hustles can be part time or additional income streams for entrepreneurs looking to expand their income streams. You can start a side hustle from home or offline, and a side hustle can be anything from driving for a rideshare company to being a virtual assistant.

These 8 side hustles can be started without the need for a computer or even to be online. All you need is enthusiasm and the motivation to start (and maybe a smartphone).

1) Home / Interior Decorating – are you creative? Your friends and family (and you) believe you have a good eye for colours and decorations? Like working with paint and paste? If that’s you, then designing or actually decorating someone’s home or even just a room can be a lucrative side hustle.

2) House Staging – nothing to do with theatre or luvvies. LOL. Some estate agents have empty homes that need to be shown like they are ‘lived in’, if you’re creative enough, you can offer a house staging service, you can also offer to supply the furniture as part of the service, at an extra cost.

3) “TAXI!” Well, almost, actually they’re known as rideshare companies; the like Uber, Lyft, Cabbify etc. You can use your own car and register with the rideshare companies using their apps to get fares. Make sure you have gone through the respective registrations and made the appropriate insurance changes beforehand.

4) Wheely great food! Ha ha, want to get fit whilst making some cash? Or just like driving around your local area? Now you can get paid for it. Offer a delivery service for restaurants or take-aways. Or you can even sign up with food delivery companies like; Uber Eats, Just Eat, Deliveroo, Foodora, Skip the Dishes etc.

5) Rent out your spare room(s). You might need to register online (with AirBnB, or craigslist, or gumtree etc) but after that you can rent out a room or rooms, maybe you have an extension you can make minor building works and make it into a studio or self-contained ensuite room? An easy side hustle to make extra cash.

6) Storage Rental. Got a spare room, or outhouse or a garage you don’t use? With some container boxes or adding some walls inside, you can rent out spare space for storage. Another option is to offer small boxes storage and you can collect/deliver.

7) Holiday / vacation rentals. Do you live in a holiday/vacation spot? Are there rental opportunities around you? You can manage the long distance owners property for them, by offering additional services over and above those offered by Estate or Letting agents, maybe welcome and exit services, cleaning services, maintenance? Creative ideas and suggestions can be your usp (unique selling proposal).

8) Garden and landscaping. Have you got green fingers, like potting around in the garden? This side hustle could be ideal for you. Mowing lawns, raking leaves, and maintaining gardens is a great business to start, especially if you already have the tools yourself.

You can offer a variety of services and charge according to what services you offer. This can also be all-around seasonal services and include property maintenance such as gutter clearing in the autumn and spring as well as having the lawn aerated, grass fertilization, and gardens weeded.

There you have it, anything in there take your fancy? You are probably thinking about how to market your new side hustle? There are lots of ways to do this, from knocking doors, to dropping leaflets door-to-door, to advertising in local shops and supermarkets even using social media with geo-location.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these 8 side hustles you can start – even tomorrow.

Small business consulting: Why I don’t do coaching

Dictionary description:-

Coach: is a person who supports a learner, or client, in achieving a specific or a set of specific personal or professional goals by providing training and guidance.

Mentor: a mentor is a knowledgeable and experienced person who assists another (the client, or student) in developing specific skills and knowledge that will enhance the less-experienced person’s professional and personal growth.

3487717_15512584662nRCoaching.jpg

What does a mentor do?

The following are among the mentor’s functions:

Teaches the student / client about a specific issue

Coaches them on a particular skill

Facilitates the client or student’s growth by sharing resources and networks

Challenges the client/student to move beyond his or her comfort zone

Creates a safe learning environment for taking risks

Focuses on their total development

Is mentoring and coaching identical?

No, not really.

People often confuse mentoring and coaching or they consider them to be one and tha same thing. Although they are related, they are not the same.

A mentor may be a coach, but a coach is not a mentor. Mentoring is “relational,” while coaching is “functional”.

There are other significant differences.

Coaching characteristics:

Managers coach all of their staff as a requirement of their job

Coaching takes place within the confines of a formal manager-employee relationship

Coaching often focuses on developing individuals within their current job roles

Interest is functional, arising out of the need to ensure that individuals can perform the tasks required to the best of their abilities

Any coach/student relationship tends to be initiated and driven by an individual’s manager

Relationship is finite – it usually ends once an individual learns the skill or is transferred to another job role

Mentoring characteristics:

Takes place outside of a line manager-employee relationship, at the mutual consent of both the mentor and the student/client

Is most often career-focused or it focuses on the professional development that may be outside of the client/student’s current area of work

The relationship is more personal – a mentor provides both professional and personal support

A relationship may be initiated by a mentor or created through a match initiated by an organization

The mentor/client (student) relationship crosses any job boundaries

The relationship may last for a specific period of time (nine months to a year) in a formal program, at which point the pair may continue in an informal mentoring relationship. Or it can be open-ended, where the relationship continues with time period as the student matures and the mentor becomes more of an observer / friendly ear for advice.

I’ve been asked often to coach people on small business consulting, I don’t like to do that. For me, coaching is too much like teaching. I much prefer to provide mentoring support, why?

Because it’s that much more personal, it’s more broad and the results are so much more satisfying, seeing a person grow in both knowledge and personal skills and self-confidence are so much more worthwhile than simply teaching someone to complete a set of skills that will only improve one part of their life.

Mentoring small business owners and entrepreneurs is a great way to help them in their early stages of development. A friendly ear to listen, a knowledgeable and experienced expert that can help. Someone who will not only support you when you are almost ready to quit but someone who will make you accountable so that you stay on track. We all need someone we can look to for support, a mentor – at least a good one, can do that for you too.

What kind of business coach do you need?

What does a business coach exactly?

Business coaches help business people such as entrepreneurs, business owners, and executives to improve their skill-set and their businesses in a variety of ways.

Unlike mentors, business coaches usually work on a fixed schedule and a specific skill or set of skills, to share actionable feedback, personalized advice, and action plans for their clients.

This can be any area of their business such as;  increase company revenue, accelerate their career, or increase business growth.

Investing in a business coach may be the single greatest investment you make in your career or business. Whether you’re a business professional looking to get a promotion or a business owner who’s business is stuck and you can’t get your creative juices flowing.

A good business coach can get you out of that rut and get velocity back into your business.

3457127_1550987809bdqbusiness_coach.jpeg

So what kinds of business coaches are there? Here’s just some for you to consider…

Business Results Training

This works best for Entrepreneurs, small business owners and marketers; they will often help you to set plans and actions to improve teamwork, exceed goals, improve business processes.

Maybe establish a framework or a new action plan to that’s unique to your business and your personal circumstances. These business coaches work closely with your business to review progress and recommend changes for improvement.

Business Workshops and Seminars

These are often 2 or 3-day workshops where you and maybe your team, are taken out of the day-to-day business operations and placed into workshops where a trained coach will lead you and your team through a series of tasks and activities following a certain theme or area of performance or business problem.

The outcome of the workshops is to make you and your team function and communicate more effectively and to work as a team. I don’t recommend workshops as a true value for your team since in most cases there are too many personalities that can disrupt effective workshop environments and unless you have a strong trainer, this can often lead to even more issues and problems than you started with.

Business Coaches for Women entrepreneurs, small business owners and Mom entrepreneurs.

Even in today’s world of inclusion and diversity, it’s still recognised that women often have to juggle a career, or business, with family life and being a mother. Also, many women who don’t have children often need the support of another woman to help shape their career or business program.

3457133_1550987861So8work_at_home_mom.jp
Image from Pexels

There are several companies that provide business coaching for women, they can offer new ways of working; how to engage with their clients, how to market differently.

Understanding the modern psyche can go a long way to helping you progress in the corporate and in your own business field. That’s not sexism, that’s fact.

Action coaches.

Now you might think, well they are all action coaches – surely. Well yes, they are, but these specific action coaches are more focussed.

Often they will come into your business or study your career plan and will strategise and will put in place a set of actions that overcome the challenges of maintaining a business or getting that next promotion or career move.

They’ll leave you a concrete plan of actions to take and check in with you from time to time to see how you are progressing.

Business and Lifestyle coaches.

All work and no play makes Jack (or Jill) as the saying goes…  Business and lifestyle coaches take the whole you; your work life and personal life, your career and personal goals and they work with you to set out a clear path for you to take action along to meet your balanced world.

This is both personal and business development, helping you save time and ultimately money in not chasing the dreams you don’t have and following the ones you do. In my opinion, a good business and lifestyle coach is as near to a mentor as you can get without actually having one.

Start-Up coaches.

Hang on, I hear you say, I literally only just started, how can I afford a coach and what the heck can she/he coach me in? Well, how about; is your business idea actually viable? If you need capital can you write a business plan to take to the bank or investors? Are you already a good salesperson?

Do you know how to get your first customers? Need to jumpstart your business quick? All good reasons why you may want the services of a startup coach. Don’t worry, they don’t have to be expensive – or full time, in fact, some can be found online too.

Want to find the business coach who’s best for you or just get some low budget but value-rich coaching to help start your online business?

business coaching

Business coaching, is it a waste of time and your money?

Is business coaching a waste of time and money?

That depends.

I know, that’s a sh##ty answer….

Every man (or woman) and his dog now seems to add coaching to their list of skills and services. But that’s part of the problem. The thing is many of these coaches don’t even look at what a business is doing or even should be doing.

No, the current fad is to focus on the mindset, or what motivates the business owner / entrepreneur / executive.

Or may their emotions, or what their life’s purpose is….

Too many so-called business coaches aren’t looking how to implement the proven best-practice systems and success strategies that cannot NOT only turn a business around but will actually grow the business.

Most of these business coaching programs spend time trying to motivate the business owner / executive and discussing how he or she feels. That’s what your therapist is for!

3441679_1550832257x9Dbusiness_coach.jpeg

No, you want your business coach to focus on developing the business, help with marketing and ultimately selling more of the business’s products or services.

I get it, there is a place for hiring therapists, psychologists and life coaches, but that’s not what you want from your business coach.

A good business coach wants to help real business owners and executives grow their businesses or career in clearly defined and measurable goals, through discovering blockers and implementing proven best-practice systems and processes that smash through the blockers and accelerate the business.

Often the business owner or executive is too close, too involved to see clearly what is holding them back and many of the solutions can appear to be too complex and difficult to implement on their own. That’s when you need proper coaching and maybe even mentorship.

3441710_1550832480wvGcoaching.jpeg

Business coaching has the ability to transform your business when it’s focussed on improving your business or career and not on the ‘soft skills’ that formulate amateurish therapy sessions.

Eric Schmidt, a one-time executive chairman of Google; once remarked: “How could a coach advise me if I’m the best person in the world at this?”

But he was missing the point. A coach doesn’t do that, a good coach observes and gets you, the executive or business owner to be the best that you can be. No amount of fluffy ‘how does that make you feel’ therapy is going to get you there.

A great business coach can make changes in your business that will make positive changes in your personal life too! A bad coach, well at best you’ll lose your time and money invested in them and nothing else. At worst you could lose everything.

So, find a coach for the area of your life (or business) that you need, don’t pick a business coach who claims to need to fix your head before your business.

What is a side-hustle?

What is a Side-Hustle? 🤑💸💲💰

The concept of having a side-hustle is not something new. This is because as people experience an increase in the cost of living, they tend to find other ways of ramping up their income.

Therefore, passive income is basically income that you can earn with little effort so as to grow your financial portfolio. Many at times this income can be generated on your free time which gives you an opportunity to work on other tasks.

If you want to get started on your side hustle and you are a newbie don’t worry below are some tips you can follow: 


-Find something that you are passionate about


-View your side as a potential income generating opportunity


-Be patient and persistent


-Dedicate some amount of time and stick to it.


Let us look at some of the home based business ideas that you can make a living out of it:


1) Handyman


This is a person who is skilled in home repairs, maintenance, plumbing fixing leaky taps and cisterns. You can make real money out of it because you just need to learn the technical skills that requires from it and can solve the problems. 


2) Online writing


Do you want to make a stable income through writing? Well, nowadays there are reputable organisations that are offering freelance writing and they pay well. Some of these fields include blogging services, educational content, SEO articles, business content and many more. Just search on Google and you’ll find out lots of them! 


3) Social media management


This is another field that you can make a good money. It includes three social media disciplines such as social engagement, analytics, and listening. You can learn and develop some of these skills and you will be paid for working. This is highly in-demand these days, so I suggest to start learning this skill! 


4) Bookkeeping


This is a systematic recording of financial transaction for a certain company. It is also a field that you can be paid by a decent amount of money to do bookeeping. Just make sure you have the skills and if they require licence, then you should be able to provide it. 


5) Drop shipping business


This is another massive field that you can generate good money. It involves having a store that sells products using a fulfillment service. Therefore, it is important to look for legit manufacturer or wholesalers and you will make your money without necessarily working for 40 hours a week.

compress your videos for free

How To Compress Your Videos Without Using Any Software

I’ve a question for you…. Can you get the same quality from a smaller size? How can you compress your videos without using any tool or having to pay for a software?

As I stared out of my study window at the bright sunny day here in Barcelona, I was thinking, what golden nugget can I share with you that could make a big difference to your morning?

2596427_1543064172az6rsz_youtube_video.j

And I remembered a clever, well I think it is anyway, way to reduce the file size of videos or simply compress your videos without losing the quality, as I suggested in the subject title.

Some of you may have been thinking I was going to take this email in another direction, but I wouldn’t do that to you.

I recently invested in an online course, don’t worry I am not promoting it to you today. The first video lesson, on growing your list, was great. Only thing is, the file size was 1.1GB – which is huge, in today’s world, for a 55-minute video not to mention a waste of space on my hard drive.

So I used this simple tip I picked up from one of my business partners.

I uploaded the 1.1GB video to my YouTube account, making sure I had set the option to “Private” beforehand.

One the video had finished processing and was uploaded to my YouTube channel, I just downloaded the video by selecting “Download MP4” from the menu on the Video Manager page.

Once it had downloaded to my Mac and I checked that it played, I deleted the version of the video from my YouTube account. That video, because it was ‘private’ never saw the light of day on my YouTube channel!

compress your videos

So what was the point of doing all this? Well, I now have a video of 185 MB, rather than the original 1.1GB but the picture quality is virtually the same.

Before discovering this trick, you would probably have used programs like Handbrake to do this. Or some other convoluted application that would take ages to set up and configure how you wanted it to cop

YouTube has done a great job on making it easy for people like us to easily process videos and this is a nifty little trick you can take advantage of.
