  • 3. but you will also spend 8,477 of those days sleeping…
  • 4. LEAVING YOU WITH 14,883 DAYS. WHERE ON AVERAGE WE WORK FOR 3,222 OF THEM…
  • 5. BUT WHAT ARE WE WORKING ON? ARE WE BUILDING OUR OWN DREAM OR SOMEONE ELSE'S?
  • 6. FOR MOST PEOPLE, THEIR SCHEDULE LOOKS A LITTLE LIKE THIS...
  • 7. WAKE UP WORK DRIVE MORNING ROUTINE WORK RELAX DRIVE WORK SLEEP
  • 8. IF THIS LOOKS FAMILIAR LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO THE SIDE HUSTLE.
  • 9. Side Hustle: The act of creating your own business as a side project to your regular 9-5 employment.
  • 10. WHY DO I LOVE THE SIDE HUSTLE? PROS CONS MORE MONEY IN YOUR POCKET BUILD NEW SKILLS EMPLOYMENT BACK-UP PLAN OFFERS CREATIVE OUTLET DO WHAT YOU LOVE CONTROL YOUR DESTINY EXTRA 10 HOURS A WEEK LESS WATCHING TV LESS PLAYING VIDEO GAMES
  • 11. IT’S NOT EASY, BUT IT’LL BE WORTH IT. “Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.”
  • 12. 4 SIMPLE TIPS TO GET STARTED TODAY: 1. AVOID DISTRACTIONS 2. CREATE CONSISTENCY 3. BE A PASSENGER 4. LEARN TO SAY NO
  • 13. 1. GET UP REALLY REALLY EARLY. OR STAY UP REALLY REALLY LATE. WHY IT WORKS When you wake up early or go to bed late, the probability of someone else being awake and able to interrupt you decreases. No distractions. You’re hustling away while the rest of the world is busy either sleeping or trying to pull themselves out of bed.
  • 14. 1. GET UP REALLY REALLY EARLY. OR STAY UP REALLY REALLY LATE. HOW IT WORKS Socrates once said, the secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old but on building the new. The key here is focus & energy. Whether you sleep in or go to bed early, make sure you’re well rested. Eat healthy meals, drink lots of water and try to get a light exercise in when you can.
  • 15. 1. GET UP REALLY REALLY EARLY. OR STAY UP REALLY REALLY LATE. TAKE AWAY TIP “The biggest drain on your time isn’t the time in which you’re busy getting things done, the biggest drain on your time is being interrupted” Let’s hang out!
  • 16. 2. CREATE CONSISTENCY IN YOUR WEEKLY CALENDER WHY IT WORKS Blocking off time in your day to focus on your side hustle will keep distractions from breaking up your day and disconnecting your ability to get into a sense of flow.
  • 17. 2. CREATE CONSISTENCY IN YOUR WEEKLY CALENDER HOW IT WORKS Create a “Hustle-Night” where you’re completely focused and wired into your work. You never book meetings outside of those associated with your side hustle on that night.
  • 18. 2. CREATE CONSISTENCY IN YOUR WEEKLY CALENDER TAKE AWAY TIP “We can’t manage time because time is a constant. Instead, we must learn to manage ourselves and prioritize our efforts on a daily basis.”
  • 19. 3. BE A PASSENGER WHY IT WORKS I hate driving. People usually think that’s odd so let me explain. It’s not that I hate the act of driving from point A to point B, what I hate is the amount of time required to get there. Taking advantage of time spent traveling allows you to be efficient with your time and will make the world of difference in your already busy schedule.
  • 20. 3. BE A PASSENGER HOW IT WORKS Take a tablet or laptop when traveling by air. Work on the tasks that don’t require wifi and send everything off once you reach your destination. Utilize taxis or busses. Reply to e-mails or manage your calendar in the time you would have spent driving.
  • 21. 3. BE A PASSENGER TAKE AWAY TIP “Anything over an hour is an hour you could have been generating value, instead of simply moving your body from here to there.”
  • 22. 4. SAYING NO THE POWER OF “ WHY IT WORKS ” Don’t spend time doing things that aren’t going to benefit you down the road or help you get closer to your goals. Focus needs to be embraced when you’re taking on new work and a new lifestyle.
  • 23. 4. SAYING NO THE POWER OF “ HOW IT WORKS ” If you’re too busy to catch up with someone or commit to something, simply tell them you’ve got a lot going on right now. Honesty is always the best policy. Prioritization is the key to success and happiness; choose wisely.
  • 24. 4. SAYING NO THE POWER OF “ TAKE AWAY TIP ” “Say no to requests to do things that you don’t really want to, don’t value or don’t bring you satisfaction and joy.”
  • 25. WE’RE ALL PRIVILEGED WITH 24 HOURS IN A DAY AND 365 DAYS IN A YEAR.
  • 26. It’s up to us to determine how we spend our time and what your goals and legacy will look like. If you’re capable to ready this entire deck, you’re capable to create something great. You’re capable to build something bigger than yourself and capable of making time for a side hustle.
  • 27. INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE? Look out for my book, The Hustle Manifesto The Hustle Manifesto is a guide to making extra money by running a side business. It’s not about starting the next Facebook or Google – It’s about starting a business that can bring in $2000 a month from doing a bit of extra work when you get home from the 9 to 5.
