This week, I want to prove to you that anyone can build a $5K side hustle (if they chose to of course).

And this can happen in 5 simple steps.

Let's dive in ↓


Step #1 Find and Verify Your Idea

Start writing down ideas/problems that are in the intersection between your interests X skills.

Don't worry if it's a long list, here's how you're going to find "the one":

1. Go to → ahrefs .com/keyword-generator.

2. Search volumes for each niche.

3. Pick the niche with the highest demand.

Example: I looked up the idea of LinkedIn Profile and here's what I got:


Step #2 Build Your Online Presence

Here's what you should do:

1. Google yourself: start removing all non-desired results.

2. Choose one platform:

  • If you're good at writing → Use Twitter/LinkedIn.
  • If you're good with video → Use Youtube/TikTok.

3. Build a solid profile by answering the following questions:

  • What value are you providing?
  • How will it help your followers?
  • Why should they listen to you?

Once you are done, you can move on to the next step.

Step #3 Create Demand via Content

If done right, your content can generate demand for your product.

Here's how you can do it:

  • Post unique opinions.
  • Share your process for getting results.
  • Point out mistakes that are made by others "Red-Pill" content = Questions = Intrest.

Step #4 Build Your Product

Your product can be a simple ebook (pdf), an online course, or even a consultation call.

My advice, start with a simple "e-book":

  1. Do your research.
  2. Write it all into a Google doc.
  3. Organize it into small chapters.
  4. Use Canva to create a free cover.


Step #4 Sell Your Product

Now comes the fun part.

To sell your product/service:

  • Share the product with friends.
  • Ask for testimonials.
  • Go to → gumroad .com
  • Build a page for your product.
  • Add all the testimonials collected.
  • Launch your offer using your content

Pro tip: to ensure you maximize your chances of success, set up a launch date for your product and tease it before launch.
