About this Webinar

Join us in this kick-off event to the Side-Hustle Series: how to turn your passion into profit.

The Maker’s Collective has teamed up with Invest Ottawa to provide you with training, support, and a step-by-step methodology to help get your side-hustle in flight this year. People around the world are moving away from the traditional, linear career path by embracing growing portfolios of work through side hustling. Today, everyone can be empowered to turn their skills and passions into a side business. There are so many reasons one may choose the path of side hustling, but in this current time of unprecedented uncertainty, the value of having multiple streams of income has never been higher. The Side Hustle Starter Kit LIVE training session will introduce you to how you can intentionally build your adaptability & resiliency by growing your portfolio of work through side hustling.

If you are a new side-hustler, freelancer, entrepreneur OR if you would like to become one, there is a community to support you, a pathway to follow, and resources to empower you to set up your new business and thrive in today’s economy.

Introducing, The Side Hustle Starter-kit, a value packed webinar to guide you through the basics of getting your side-hustle off the ground! In this 90 minute online training session, you’ll be introduced to the Side Hustle Starter Kit methodology and tools to help kickstart your journey with side hustling. Then, you’ll hear from a panel of experienced side hustlers about their journeys and you will have the opportunity to ask questions and get coaching from the panel.

About the Speakers: Jeff Mitchell and Lacey Heels

Jeff Mitchell – The Maker’s Collective, Partner & Side Hustle Program Leader. Digital Trades School, co-founder. Freelance consulting, coaching & workshop delivery.

Jeff is a former English & ESL teacher. He left the traditional workplace of the past in 2012 in pursuit of more autonomy, meaning & money through side hustling. He spent the first 2.5 years of that journey doing pretty much nothing but failing. Making mistakes. Falling down. Trying to get back up. He had a romanticized view of what entrepreneurship was all about – the realities of getting started were a serious test of humility, grit & adaptability. He learned that those are the prerequisites to taking your side hustle from idea to launch. It’s those human skills that will get you through the inevitable early challenges of starting & growing a side hustle.

Today, Jeff is pursuing those currencies that matter most to him through a portfolio approach to his professional life. He is growing an adaptable portfolio of work through side hustling that currently includes coaching, consulting & training through his sole proprietorship, being a partner and head of training with the Digital Trades School, and leading Side Hustle Courses & Partnerships with The Maker’s Collective.
