Hello fellow Encore Hustlers
Sometimes you need a shove or a kick in the pants to get your hustle started.
One way is to commit to giving yourself a 30 day deadline to launch. Read this story from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario about an upcoming seminar How to Launch Your Own Side Hustle, hosted by StartUP Sault. The goal of the seminar is provide you the tools to launch your business idea in a month.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Sault (pronounced Soo), it is a small city along the shore of Lake Superior and across from the Michigan Upper Peninsula and for much of the 20th century it was a major steel making center. The area has a rugged beauty, short summers and long, brutal winters. It was also, for a few years, the home of Mr EH in the 80's, when he was a research metallurgist at Algoma Steel.
Residents of the Soo tend to be a hardy and hard working bunch and Mr EH noted that many of his co-workers maintained side hustles including:
- renting out a log splitter
- stringing racquets
- organizing golf tournaments
- providing industrial safety training
- raising tropical fish
It has been over 30 since Mr EH has lived in the Soo but it pleasant to hear that the entrepreneurial spirit lives on the city in such grass-root organizations as StartUp Sault, which is provides support and networking opportunities for new businesses.
The upcoming seminar is lead by Nevin Buconjic the founder of StartUp Sault and a serial entrepreneur in his own right. During the seminar Nevin will discuss his latest side business that he started in one week for less than $250.
If you cannot attend seminar you can also read his two books Starting Your Own Business:An Entrepreneur's Guide and 25 Money-Making Businesses You Can Start in Your Spare Time, both are available on Amazon.
