Welcome to Hustling Hotties. My name is Janelle and I love to side hustle. Before I was a Hustling Hottie I was working for corporate America.
In 2009, I started working for a bank in customer service and I was so excited. I was 21 and had just started my first corporate job. I had my own insurance, a retirement plan and I was on salary plus commission. Granted it wasn’t a huge salary but it was regular money. For a young woman with no kids I could live like a fat rat. The first year went great until I realized that I was highly stressed trying to meet my sales quota. I became so stress that I was having strong chest pains, my hair was falling out and I had my menstrual cycle for 3 months straight. It was at that time that I decided to go on a medical leave. This was just not my story at this company, but this was the environment. At least once a week the ambulance came to take someone to the hospital for various reasons.
It was on this medical leave that I decided that I had to leave the company. I was so tired of feeling sick and if I was being truly honest I was depressed. All of my company morale was out the window and my bed was my favorite place to be. I needed to freedom! For such a long time, I thought that having a regular job was going to be the solution to all of my problems. But after working at the bank I knew that a job was not for me. I knew I was destined for more, but I really wasn’t sure what.
I was already tutoring part time and decided to nanny part time as well. The tutoring was going great because it was in short sessions 2 to 4 hours, but the nannying felt like a job again to me. The pay was less than tutoring and I worked 8 to 12 hour days. So decided to pick up more tutoring sessions. By the time I quit my job at the bank I was tutoring 35 hours a week and making more money than I did working full time at the bank.
Those tutoring clients loved me so much that they began to refer me to other clients and within a year I was working 60 to 80 hour weeks and feeling overwhelmed. Tutoring was feeling like the bank and I was not happy again. At this time, it struck me that what I needed to do was to hire tutors to help me. I started out with 2 and ended up with 10 tutors who went all over Atlanta homeschooling and tutoring students. This was my first (of many) side hustles that I turned into a business. I didn’t have to tutor anymore. I stayed home and booked clients for my tutors. I loved what I did it was great. I was making money and I didn’t have to leave my house.
Today I still have a couple of tutors that work for me, but I have taken on many other side hustles that have become quite profitable for me. I no longer have to leave my home unless I want to. I travel the world where and when I want to. I have freedom!
