Happy 2022 to everyone. It is going to be a great year. I have a good feeling about it. So right now, I am working on a battle plan. My goal is to achieve over $100,000 this year. That is the goal. It may seem unrealistic. Most people don’t even make a third of that in a year in this country.

But it’s something I’m going to strive for $100,000 plus with my side hustle. So the end goal is about $10K per month. You might read that and think, Adam, that is insane. What are you doing? It’s not something out of the ordinary. I have established myself well enough to do this. I’m only going to continue to do this.

I want people to start some side hustle, and you absolutely should. Your hobby is the key to peace and prosperity with our hobbies.
With your hobby, you can build a community to develop yourself and help others get what they want. Above all, everyone in your community will have a more enjoyable time doing the thing they like.

Planning fun events will encourage people to come to your events. Whether you’re doing this online or in-person you know, it’s going to benefit you in the long run to have this community. You don’t even have to be in the same geographical area anymore. All you need to do is just start a group on Facebook or build out your website and invite new people to come.

When it’s appropriate, ask for their contact information or open up a mailing list and have an incentive ready to go, like a PDF guide when people sign up. I do believe that when you incentivize people to come or when you offer to help people out with their problems, you build those relationships for your future.

Now you might be thinking to yourself, how do I start this Adam? Well, it’s pretty cheap and it’s cheaper than you think. If you have an iPhone, if you have a laptop, you can make some side hustle money, and you don’t need any overhead. You don’t need any physical location. Well, you don’t need to be at a specific one.

You can do it right from your laptop and your phone and find ways to earn money, doing the things you like to do. So, for example, let’s say you like to bake, whether that’s bagels, donuts, cupcakes. You can find a market where people want to buy your things.

During the 2008 recession, many people bought trucks and minivans to sell their baked goods. They then rented a place where they could bake. Then they just drove around town and sold their goods. This model of selling food then helped spark a new industry of food trucks. It wasn’t just ice cream anymore.

There were food trucks for pizza, burgers, gyros, etc. There were desserts as well. You could even get a funnel cake or coffee from a food truck. All the good things you’d love to eat you could find from a food truck. It’s incredible with the way this world is going. We’re going to have so much potential in 2022 and beyond. I genuinely believe that.

Whatever it takes I think it’s going to be worth it for you to at least get a side hustle. You might be the person on this email list or reading this on Medium or Substack article thinking you can’t. You may even be thinking to yourself, ‘I just want to work a nine to five and retire’. I don’t begrudge you for that, but nothing’s guaranteed.

Nothing is guaranteed anymore. If the 2020s should’ve taught you anything it’s that.

2020 should’ve taught everyone that nothing is guaranteed and that things can be swiped away from you. It’s very scary to think about, but having that side income, or having that mobile income that you could take anywhere with you, that could be made on a phone or a laptop, protects you against financial hardships.

By having a source of income that you control you can work when you want to and decide what goals to pursue. You can have that source of income ready to go anytime and it can make you money passively. Even if your first source of income or your primary one runs dry.
