[AONC] Introducing Side Hustle School, a Daily Podcast for 2017

The Art of Non-Conformity


Happy 2017! May this year be a special and meaningful one for you.
Here's my big thing: I’m starting a daily podcast called Side Hustle School. It’s for everyone who wants to create a new source of income without quitting their day job. It will be published, well, every single day in 2017.
I’ve been working on this for a long time and it will be my #1 project in 2017. I’d love for you to be part of it—and if you’re not interested yourself, I’d be grateful if you’d tell your friends who need a side hustle.

*Do you have a side hustle? Share it with me, and we may use it on the show!

Announcing Side Hustle School: A Daily Project For 2017 (Read More)

For the past five months, I’ve been working on something behind-the-scenes, without saying a word about it publicly. Doing it that way felt surprisingly refreshing. There was no need to manufacture hype, and no false pressure to live up to.

There was, however, an unbreakable deadline. That deadline was January 1, and the team and I hit it—of course. It’s now January 3, and the project is now off and running.

This new project, the one I’ll spend more time on than anything else in 2017, is called Side Hustle School. First and foremost, it’s a daily podcast. By daily, I mean daily. Not 5 days a week, not “most days,” but every single day in 2017.

You need a side hustle. If you subscribe and make listening to it part of your routine, you can make it a reality by the end of the year.

In this (very abbreviated) Annual Review series…

One thing I know is that it’s important to pay attention to how things make you feel. If you look forward to something, that tells you something. If you dread something, or even if you just don’t feel that excited about it, that gives you other information.

I got a call to do some filming for a marketing agency in Los Angeles. I had the date open and it sounded interesting, so I decided to go. The filming took place in a Beverly Hills mansion, probably the largest single-person home I’ve ever been in.

On the way in I waved awkwardly to the car valet who was hosing down a Porsche, then said hello to the personal chef chopping vegetables in the kitchen.

There was, I kid you not, a koi pond in the living room. I almost fell in while taking a picture of it. Then someone came over to ask me to please not take pictures, so that was the end of that.

When you find something you truly believe in, you should work as hard as you possibly can to achieve it. Are you working hard?

Your Life, Your Rules: The Journey Continues

I started writing The Art of Non-Conformity because I wanted to present alternative strategies for life, work, and travel.
More than eight years on, I’m still extremely excited to serve people interested in unconventional ideas. For everyone who's been reading for a while, you’re the reason I do this.
And if you’re new: WELCOME. You’re not alone out there. Don't stop believing! :)
To infinity and beyond,

P.S. Are we connected elsewhere? I post on my blog at least twice a week. You can also keep up with me on Facebook or Instagram or Twitter.

** “Bucket List Challenge” Starts Next Week **

There are two kinds of people who set New Year’s resolutions:
1. Those who want to change their life
2. And those who actually do
As you probably know, #1 is a lot more common. Why? Here’s one big reason: Most people set a huge goal, but have no idea how to get from here to there.
Setting the goal doesn’t mean anything. Making the goal come to life is what really matters!
Instead of dreaming about their “plans,” the people who achieve their goals use a system — a set of tools to take them day by day through the tiny changes that bring them to their goals.
If you’re serious about your resolution this year, join my friend Ramit for a new mini-course he’s created called “Bucket List Challenge.”
You’ll learn a simple, proven system to go from talking about it to doing it—no matter your goal.
