NOTES FROM CHRIS
Side hustlers are busy. You work full-time and have no shortage of other responsibilities, so you may ask “Can you really have a day job, maybe even a career, and make money and do good?”
If you’ve ever wondered about “social entrepreneurship,” you might like today’s story. It’s all about an attorney for a professional baseball team who co-founds a jewelry company that becomes a sustainable social enterprise, meaning that it supports itself by being profitable—while making a difference.
Amy, the founder of Rebel Nell, used her skills as a lawyer and what she learned about making jewelry to pay her way through school to level-up with a sustainable side hustle. As we’ve seen in past episodes, one thing often leads to another, and everything is “figureoutable”.
If you’re struggling to find ideas for your own side hustle, consider skills you already possess before you start looking for other options. Did you pay your way through college, like Amy did, or do something else to support yourself at some point in your life? What skills did you acquire?
MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:
• Rebel Nell: Learn more about Amy, her team, and all of the gorgeous jewelry they make.
• Shopify: Amy chose to use Shopify for the Rebel Nell website. It’s a very simple system that is awesome for ecommerce.
• Indiegogo: Amy and her partner needed capital to get started, so they created an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for supplies and a space.
• New Yorker Doubles Her Income with Next-Level Tarot Cards: How a senior designer for a feminist media publication decides to create tarot card decks and ends up making as much with her side hustle as she does at her day job.
• Homemade Gin Kit Sells 75,000 Units: After encountering a roadblock trying to start their own distillery, two friends create a side hustle that allows others to make gin in the comfort of their own home—and it’s a huge success!
Inspiration is good; inspiration combined with action is better. Now get back to work!
Yours in the revolution,
