Poorly Narrated

Have had to stop listening to this book an hour in as it’s so poorly narrated by Chris. I just cannot retain the information. At the beginning he was reading the book with no tone or emphasis where it should be. It improved after a while but then he started reading at a rapid pace. Still he was generally sounding bored of his own book and couldn’t wait to get the chore finished. The content is ok and I would have liked to have completed this book. I’m not sure I will purchase the printed version however. Disappointing.

Great book

He takes away all my anxiety when he talks about side hustles instead of becoming a muti millionaire in 3 days. So inspiring and real. I am going to download your next book now.

Great layout & instruction

Really useful 'how to' on both generating ideas and putting them into action with a lot of inspiring examples throughout.

A poor sell.

Not what the title suggests at all, I wouldn't recommend to anyone. Basic levels of side businesses that anyone would know about before reading this book.

Best action book towards entrepreneurship

I loved everything about this book. I “know” Chris from reading his previous books therefore I wouldn’t expect any different. It’s a step-by-step book that will take you straight to staring a side hustle or full-time business. This book helped me open my eyes in regards to how many side hustle opportunities are out there. Great book! Abdel

I love the Pod cast and this book orders the process with the same humour and dreadful puns! I am inspired to go ahead and just have a go! Thank you Chris. As I said. Inspirational!

Side Hustle

I really enjoyed this book, it shows that with hard work and dedication you can build and have a successful side hustle. Chris uses many examples and talks you through their process. It is a practical and inspiring way of demonstrating how you personally can set up your own side hustle and potentially end up working for yourself. Time management is the basis of the side hustle, you need to be able to dedicate your time to your pursuit. You have to sacrifice a lot in order to build your business.
