Very boring

I book like this I think u need in hard copy. Then go skim quickly to see the type of huslte and drill down into the ones that interest you. Listening to dozens of husltes that you would never attemp diluted my ambition somewhat.

Your mileage may vary

great ideas.

Lots of great ideas. Didn't love the narrator's voice though. There were also a lot of cheezy puns which would have been funny if they weren't read in a monotone voice.

Great listen.

I was engaged right off the start. The Author Chris is very well spoken and full of great strategies to start an online business. I would recommend this book to anyone that has a product, service or idea that would like to share it with the world. Great job Chris.

Maybe you want to sell bowties or cufflinks or apps or chicken saddles. Don't miss it, so worth it!

Inspiring and practical side hustle ideas

100 Side Hustles is the best side hustle ideas book for anyone who wants to start a side hustle without quitting their job.

What l loved the most are the inspiring and practical ideas Chris shared, with real-life examples of people doing them successfully.

After listening to this book, you will find at least one profitable side hustle idea that you can start right away.

I found more than one idea and highly recommend you get this book today. Even better, pair it with this book "Side Hustle: From Idea to Income in 27 Days" to make the perfect combo for your side hustle.

Roll your eyes puns throughout!

I'll start with the puns. My husband love puns and is quick to point out when I have unknowingly said one. Chris Guillebeau's puns are very endearing to me. I loved seeing Chris’s personality come through this way in the book. Content- so many amazing ideas and critical factors. Simply put strategic plans, makes me see how simple it can be to get started and succeed. I am inspired to be able to write to Chris telling him about my Sussex’s at a side huddle.

Best of his books

This is the 3rd book of Chris Guillebeau’s that I’ve read and by far my favorite. It made me come up with my own version of a side hussle I heard about in this book!

Much like the podcast.

Some of the stories you’ve heard but with a few new ones. I don’t know that there’s much more information than in the podcast; but if you like the podcast you’ll like the book.

Excuse the puns

The corny puns might make you twist your lips, but the information is real. Well worth the price.

This punny, informative and engaging narrative hits the mark!

This guys is a madman, which in Australia is generally a positive compliment for someone who is cutting edge. Structuring the entire book as 100 narratives of real work examples is brilliant, as it is incredibly engaging. I have many ideas and a new found inspiration. Thank you Chris, I look forward to submitting my future side hustle success story on your podcast.

A book full of case studies

A lot of case studies, some are relevant to what I'm interested in and some are not. Definitely good to get the ideas flowing. Losing a star only because some of it was irrelevant to my interests. Puns were good though.
