Making some extra money by finding a side gig and having a main job? Sounds good to me. I decided on a whim to try out Guillebeau's book and see if it might give me ideas on how I could somehow find a way to make some extra cash while trying to hold down another job. Couldn't hurt in this economy.
Don't have much experience with these types of books but Guillebeau lays out a plan for how one can take an idea and make it a successful side job from concept to execution. How to take it day by day and laying out a basic framework for someone to find a way to use a skill to translate to another job.
That's basically it. I wasn't sure what to expect from the book or really thought about what skills I have to leverage into another part time gig so I'm not sure how to rate the book. I did feel that in some ways it was very simplistic and it's really more for people who already have an idea of how they can turn their idea or skill or experience into something that pays but isn't something that needs or can sustain in a way a full-time job would. If you're already a self-starter or need a little push this might be a good book to check out.
Borrow from the library. I'd suspect that this might be something that is initially useful but only helps someone so far and isn't necessarily a keeper to have.
