I love a good book, but I'm so pushed for time it bugs the hell out of me when I buy a new one and find myself completely underwhelmed after a few chapters...
I tend to read business books, books about getting better at life, books about sport, inspirational stories and autobiographies and I want to know 3 things:
1. How actionable is it?
2. How relevant is it right now?
3. Will it get results?
Here's my 2 minute review of 100 Side Hustles by Chris Guillebeau:
In this quick book review,
I'm going to give you my insight
in three specific areas:
How actionable is it?
How relevant is it right now?
And will it get you results?
So today we're reviewing “100 Side Hustles”
by New York Times best-selling author
Now this is a book about regular people
launching side businesses,
some of which turn into big businesses.
It's an idea book. One to inspire you.
My favorite story of hustle in the book
is about an Australian guy
who creates a resource to help medical students
master the vocabulary of the human anatomy.
He started that business
and he earned $800 a month for several years
without changing that product.
Here's the key, though.
He didn't start with a specific product.
He started by first identifying a real problem,
and then he built a solution to resolve that problem.
So, let's get to the scores.
One, is it actionable?
I gave the book 7 out of 10 here.
There are many nuggets of advice,
but you got to be proactive,
you got to make them work for you.
Number two, is it relevant?
I gave this a 10 out of 10 there.
In a world where people are having salaries cut,
or losing jobs,
this is a fantastic inspiration
to really get back out there and take control of your income.
Number three, will it get results?
I gave it 9 out of 10 here.
This book is written to get you thinking,
it's designed to inspire you, give you ideas.
And it absolutely does that.
It got me buzzing off when I read this book,
with different ideas and things I could do with my own business.

If you read the book,
let me know what you think in the comments,
I'd love to hear from you.
Have an awesome day, people!
