Karen was always a great networker and it just came naturally to her so it only made sense that her side hustle would be connecting people. More specifically, she connects podcast guest with podcast host – like a pseudo talent agent – a podcast matchmaker.
WHY SHOULD I LISTEN?
She was able to turn a skill that just came naturally to her into a full-time income source. After years of being a teacher, she was craving something more in life. It just didn’t fall into her lap though. She hustled her ass off and landed an opportunity to work with a big name financial blogger. Because she knew that this was a great opportunity to make a great connection, she did this for FREE. Since then, she has been able to quit teaching and go all-in on her ex-side hustle.
HOW WILL IT HELP ME?
Many of us have a natural skill that we overlook as a commodity that a lot of people have. While it may be true that a lot of people have your skill, it all depends on how you apply your skill. If we take Karen for example, how many people out there are great at networking and talking to people – a lot. However, the best side hustle ideas are niche and that is seen here with what she did. She narrowed down the broad, saturated topic of networking and niched down on connecting both sides of the podcast world – guest and host to be a full-time podcast matchmaker.
WHERE CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT THEM?
