In this episode Kevin talks about the side hustle he had during high school.
Kevin grew up in Chincoteague. It’s a small island town on the coast of Virginia. The town is known for fishing, boating, and seafood.
Kevin came up with the idea of catching and selling minnows. Minnows are tiny fish that are great bait for bigger fish. Growing up in the town that he did he saw the need for minnows in fishermen and boat captains. So, in the mornings before school he would create the traps for the minnows and throw them into the ocean. After school he would go back to check the traps that were full of the tiny minnows. He would then take these buckets of minnows and sell them to the fisherman and boat captains. Sometimes he would make up to $50. Kevin had a part-time job in high school but this was his side hustle that earned him some extra spending cash.
The point here is that there is always something extra you can do for money. If you have a business or are starting a side gig, decide where there is a need. See how you can craft a service or product to fulfill that need and make some extra cash.
