HELLO, I'M A
Side hustle guru and amateur rapper
My name is Akande and oh yes, you read that correctly–I will crush a beat with some fat lyrics.
Dope rhymes aside, I am a passionate family man, husband and side-hustle aficionado (woah, there nelly).
I help professionals build killer side hustles
Over the last 8 years I've become an expert in creating profitable side hustles and I want to share how I did it.
After coming out of college with a ton of debt, I knew that I would need to make a lot of money if I planned to pay it back. I mean, a lot of money…
If was daunting to say the very least but I knew that I had valuable skills that I could leverage outside of my traditional 9-5.
As a single, college-educated 21 year old, I began creating my first of many side hustles.
Over the last 8 years, I’ve run more than 5 different, profitable, side hustles while working a full-time position (40 hours a week).
In that time I’ve learned the ins and outs of what it takes to create a sustainable way to build more than one income stream. This isn’t some ‘get rich quick’ scheme or a somewhat scammy ‘work from Argentina!’ situation.
What I’ve found is that it requires hard work and commitment and besides, I think my wife would scold me for traveling to a remote part of the world to ‘get away’ only to stay plugged in!
Did I mention how much I HATE the phrase 'passive online income'?
What does ‘passive’ even mean? Nothing in life worth having is easy to do and rarely, if ever, doesn’t require an active role. The simple fact is, if you’re looking for an easy, or quick way to build another stream of income, I’m not your guy.
I teach what I know and what I’ve found is that making money, for the most part, is hard work. Surprise!
There’s nothing wrong with that, though. The hard work now has an immediate and long-term return on that time invested–the way I see it, every hour spent building your side hustle now, is an hour gifted to your future self.
You might have your own goals, but I know that I work hard now, so I can spend more time with my family later on in life!
I want to be a part of your side hustle story!
Over the years I’ve been incredibly blessed to work in a wide range of positions as a professional, experiencing everything from slinging Dairy Queen cones and Blizzards, to a call-center salesman, to the global communications specialist for an international manufacturer–I can safely say that I’ve seen it all!
During that same time, I was able to experience the empowerment that came with having a fulfilling side hustle to supplement my income.
My side hustles often helped me pay off debt, reclaim my time, and take control of my finances in powerful ways.
If this is something you’ve been thinking about, or is sort of floating around in the back of your mind, don’t wait–now, more than ever, is the best time to start your side hustle.
