On July 31, WIB-Chicago proudly hosted Chris Guillebeau, a New York Times Bestselling Author and the creator of the "Side Hustle School" podcast. Chris talked about inspirational real-life stories featuring teachers, artists, coders, and entire families who've found ways to create new sources of income. He presented our audience with steps for launching a side hustle, from identifying underserved markets to crafting unique products and services that spring from our passions. WIB-Chicago members have unique talents and were inspired to join the ranks of these innovative entrepreneurs--making money on the side. We provided our members with a personally signed copy of Chris’ 100 Side Hustles book.
