In this episode of the Side Gig Central Podcast, Elena talks with Kathy Kristof, editor of the wildly popular site, sidehusl.com, a side gig aggregator website that researches, reviews and rates more than 300 online platforms (or “plug and play” side gigs) that allow you to make money. What is so compelling about sidehusl.com is that they break down all of the side hustle possibilities into three concise categories, WORK, RENT or SELL – pretty straightforward, right? The diversity of side gigs on this website is totally mind boggling and yes there is truly something for everyone, no matter your skill set or current occupation. So, if you’ve ever been curious as to which side gig is truly right for you, Kathy will happily guide you through the Wild West of the gig economy and land on a lucrative AND fulfilling side hustle.
