There's plenty of excellent advice here but I'll admit I was expecting the examples to be a little less... corporate?
Maybe it's because I just finished reading about side hustles and the $100 start-up from author/blogger Chris Guillebeau. Patrick McGinnis doesn't exclude the side hustle mentality, but he's definitely plugged into the corporate mindset more than I was prepared for. For example, rather than buying imported coffee and selling it locally at a premium, McGinnis advocates for becoming a corporate consultant. It's the same kind of "hustle" but coming from different spheres of the market. And the mindset feels different even though it's not really.
