    I side hustle in the following ways: selling on eBay and Etsy , graphic design jobs I find on guru or 99designs, in my first two weeks after finding skill crush, I made $424 in side hustle!! I just need to know how to get more and loyal customers. I want to thank you skill crush for all the info you provide…and for FREE!. I am a fan for life.

    So Adda, what’s the best way to define your audience and turn them into repeat customers??

    Loved your video series! I have a couple of “side hustles”. I act/model,
    but I also create promotional videos with voice over, original music,
    and graphics which I do on my own time. I also recently started working
    as a leasing agent on Saturdays, but those are set hours. I am trying
    things out to see how I like this new set up. I also love the learning
    hustle, but I think all of the ones you described are great. Last year, I
    did the charity hustle for a year as a radio host and it was very
    rewarding.

    Hi Adda! Thank you so much for this post – the advice and resources are
    super helpful! I love what you and the team at Skillcrush are doing. You guys are amazing at demystifying coding and shining a
    huge light on the vast opportunity in technology, so, from the
    bottom of my aspiring developer heart, THANK YOU.

    I’m actively
    learning HTML, CSS and just started jQuery…and I’m really, really
    liking it so far! I’m helping a friend with his portfolio now and will look
    into the resources you just provided but definitely looking for more
    side hustles…Do you or know of anyone who is looking for help?

    p.s. What was your 2nd point of advice in the 4th Type of Side Hustle video?

    Cheers!

      Hi Sasha :) Yes, I am constantly being asked about developer recommendations. Shoot me an email adda at skillcrush.com. But also check out some of the sites I recommended and try responding to a few of the listings. You never know!

      Also, there actually was no #2, or like, there were only 3 total, but in my numbering I skipped from 1 to 3 and didn’t realize it until it was too late to fix ! Oops.
