Other Side Hustle Approaches

Individuals with disabilities often do well starting their own business, according to the authors of The Next Millionaire Next Door.

For residents of Brooklyn in New York City the Brooklyn Public Library hosts a yearly PowerUp business plan competition.

Locals can create a business plan and pitch it to a panel of judges. The best business idea wins seed money so that the person can start up the business.

See the Brooklyn Public Library website for details.

See if your local library system has a Business and Career Center like the Brooklyn library does.

Often there you can get information about starting a business. The Business and Career Center will also host virtual workshops today and in-person workshops once the pandemic ends.

In the coming blog entry I will talk about crowdfunding to generate money for your business or other plan that requires capital.
