#008: 5 Biggest Myths of Starting a Side Hustle

Aug 04, 2021

Have you been sitting on an idea for a side hustle or online business, but you keep putting it off or stopping yourself from taking action? 

Want to launch that YouTube channel, start a marketing consultancy, host a podcast, create a must-read blog but you just can't seem to take that first step? 

One of the hardest parts of building your location-independent, be-your-own-boss life is simply getting the ball rolling on that idea of yours.

I tell people all the time: Making your first $1,000 is easy. Making your first $1 is hard.

Those first few steps can feel like you’re carrying 100 pounds of boulders up Kilimanjaro. 

I’m sure you remember the concept of the coefficient of friction from science class? 

Here’s the google definition: 

co·ef·fi·cient of fric·tion


  1. the ratio between the force necessary to move one surface horizontally over another and the pressure between the two surfaces.

How does this relate to building your business and side hustle? 

Well, most of us create a lot of friction between where we want to go and where we are right now. Often those points of friction manifest as fears, excuses, and limiting beliefs. Regardless of what they're called, they are all MYTHS. 

In fact, there are five main myths most people believe about starting a side hustle and online business and in today’s episode I’m debunking all of them. 

Let’s dive in.
