As many of you know, my wife and I started Shave Valet as a passion project. Our key focus is to help people in our local market get a perfect shave through education and access to quality wet shaving supplies. We approached it as a Side Hustle, to create a personal asset as well as generate a small side income, without having to quit our day jobs.
One inspiration point has been the Side Hustle School Podcast by Chris Guillebeau. Chris launched this podcast on January 1st, 2017 and has featured a unique side hustle story every day since then. I have been an active listener since day one and have really enjoyed following along and learning from the great stories of the many entrepreneurs, intrentrepreneurs and everyday folks Chris features on the show.
I am so proud Shave Valet was featured on episode 277 of Side Hustle School! Here Chris tells the background and origin story Shave Valet and what we have learnt along the way. You can view the show notes and download the episode here: https://sidehustleschool.com/episode/277. My wife and I were on vacation in Croatia when the episode released. I have to say it was a pretty cool moment listening to the episode over a beer while travelling abroad.
Chris has also launched his new book, Side Hustle – From Ideas to Income in 27 Days. This book provides a step-by-step action plan with everything you need to create a new source of income without quitting your day job. I definitely recommend you check it out.
In closing, Shave Valet would not be possible without the amazing support of our many loyal clients, suppliers and friends. We are so grateful for all of you and your support in making this little side hustle a reality.
