Side hustling outside of your full or part-time employment can supplement your income greatly and even grow into a full-fledged business allowing you to quit that day job.
That’s what it’s done for our friends Julie from FIRE Drill Podcast and Cody from The FI Show. Cody earned enough to walk away from his desk job forever in January and Julie made $40,000 last year while working full-time.
The three side hustles they used to reach those earnings are blogging, selling printables on Etsy, and freelancing.
Now Cody & Julie want to teach others all of the tools and time-saving tricks they learned to generate income from these side hustles through their joint business Gold City Ventures.
I had the opportunity to preview the Freelance Toolkit and was so impressed with it that we chose to become an affiliate to help Julie and Cody bring the product to market and showcase it as a terrific option to our readers ready to start a side gig.
We here at Women Who Money have done our share of freelancing side hustles, and we started out the hard way; On our own, often spinning our wheels, wasting valuable time (and money!) in attempts to find the best way to do things.
This course can help you start the right way from the onset, saving you lots of time and aggravation, to start earning cash quickly!
What is the Freelance Toolkit?
Freelancing is one of the fastest ways to grow your income, aside from obtaining another traditional job. So, if you’re looking to make money fast, freelancing can be the way to go.
Services such as freelance writing, audio editing, basic graphic design, and more can earn you money through sites such as Fiverr and Upwork, Facebook Groups, professional groups, and networking.
With the right skills, you can earn money at will, greatly increasing your income. Outside of your day job!
The freelancing side hustle course covers three of these skills in-depth and guides you to land your first paying client.
If you have any desire to start freelance writing, audio editing, or graphic design, this course is for you. But it’s not just for those interested in those three ideas!
The course offers:
- 8 info-packed modules with text and video lectures and valuable expert interviews
- Weekly assignments and printable lesson plans to keep you on track
- Bonus lessons on Social Media and SEO including interviews with industry experts
- Private VIP Facebook group for accountability & community (Free access for one month)
- In-depth tutorials on
- Freelance Writing
- Audio Editing
- Graphic Design
- Recommendations for tools and how to use them
Here’s a sneak peek!
What We Think is Great
You can tell from the start in all of their side hustle courses, Julie and Cody want to ensure you can take what they teach you and implement it immediately.
In the Freelance Toolkit specifically, I found Cody doesn’t just tell you what you need to do, he shows you how to do it with video walkthroughs!
I’m confident even I could start a side hustle audio editing after going through this course with Cody.
The course provides downloadable lesson plans, assignments, and skills tests to ensure you stay on track and learn the skills you need within each module.
The interviews with leading experts on freelance writing, audio editing, Upwork, Fiverr, and SEO are valuable and rich with takeaways.
An additional bonus within the course I didn’t expect are videos with experts on additional freelance ideas:
- Running Facebook Ads, an interview with expert Monica Louie
- Social Media Management: Become a Pinterest Virtual Assistant with experts Kristin Larson and Gina Horkey
Some side hustles are more scalable, higher-paying, and easier to learn than others.
Fortunately, the side hustles Julie and Cody are teaching:
- Won’t take up a ton of your time
- Require no previous skills
- Can be done from anywhere in the world — as long as you have an internet connection.
- Don’t require any special software to get started
And you don’t need to be a Type-A rockstar or creative genius either.
Launch Your Side Hustle In High Gear
If I were starting today with no prior knowledge of freelancing this course would be valuable. If freelancing side gigs such as writing, audio editing, or graphic design were one of my ideas, the value would skyrocket.
Could it be right for you?
If you’ve been considering starting a side hustle but aren’t sure how to begin, the Freelance Toolkit can be a valuable resource to launch your freelancing side hustle in high gear.
But don’t forget, they have two other courses!
Here are sneak peeks of the Etsy Printables and the Blogging for Profit Courses if those are of interest too!
