Side hustles. They’re all the rage – especially for those of us who know that to grow big, you gotta start small. Yeah, we see you. Whether you’re considering a side gig for the first time, or you’re an established business owner after some extra revenue, we’re rounding up our best advice on hustlin’ all month long. Welcome to Side Hustle September.



Isn’t it awesome to have quick access to so many resources and so many people that have paved the way for us in business?

Whether it’s listening to a podcast or reading a book, we are so fortunate that we have business-building — and money-making — tools at our fingertips.

Truth: I am more of a podcast person myself. Even on a quick drive to the office, it can really spark something in you or give you that motivation you need to kick off the day. That said, taking a deeper dive with a small business book each evening can make a huge difference for your business and your income. And then there’s the perfect compromise: the audiobook.

Here’s a list of all my favorite small business podcasts, beauty industry podcasts, and business books, so you can find the perfect one for you.
