(inspirational music) - Did you know that most designers have hundreds, if not thousands of dollars worth of untapped creations that are just sitting on their computers? From putting your designs on a t-shirt, to building a small font foundry, to making brushes for Photoshop, designers can make regular extra monthly income with side hustles. My name is Dustin Lee and I'm the owner of RetroSupply Co., one of the top sellers of digital design goods for illustrators, creatives, and graphic designers online.
Over the past six years, I've made over a million dollars selling design goods and in this course, I want to teach you how you can build your own side hustle as well. My experience has taught me a lot about what makes some side hustles into steady, strategic, and reliable incomes and others into frustrating failures. It's also given me the opportunity to meet and learn from dozens, if not hundreds of other designers who have changed the way their businesses and their lives operate as a result of their little empires. In this course, I'm going to help open your eyes to the opportunities available to you to build your own side hustle.
I'm going to share with you proven business models that have worked for others, essential tips for getting started, and inspiring real-life examples to paint a picture of how these small creative businesses come together for designers just like you. I have two goals I want to achieve with this course. The first is, I want to show you that building a side hustle isn't something for a select few creatives, but for people just like you and me. Second, I want to get you excited enough about the possibilities that you take the leap from learning to actually taking the steps to releasing your first product.
Making money, in fact, is not even the hardest part of this. The hardest part is developing that initial belief in yourself and taking those first important steps. Join me and learn all about how to turn your side hustle into your main hustle. (inspirational music)
