How to Have, Enjoy, and Maintain a Side Hustle
Side hustle | sʌɪd ˈhʌs(ə)l |
Any side job that helps you make some extra cash or even just a niche that you’ve decided to develop. Side-hustles can range from selling home-made jewellery to freelance work, or even an internship or volunteer experience. Typically, side-hustles stem from a passion, skill, or hobby that you’ve decided to take to the next level and possibly even use to generate some revenue. (source: thnichemovement.com)
These days it seems like everyone has a side hustle that they’re doing alongside their main gig.
Some of us dream of quitting our day jobs and turning our side hustle into our main hustle, whilst others are simply happy with the fulfilment that side hustling provides.
Join us as we bring together a panel of 4 diverse hustlers, who are keen to share their knowledge, experiences and hustling journeys.
So if you’re keen on finding out what it takes to have, keep, and maintain a side hustle (or even turn it into a main hustle), then make sure you come along.
Arrive at 5:30 for a 5:45pm start. The panel discussion will go for about 1 hour, with a 30 minute Q & A afterwards – so please bring any hustling questions you may have.

Ellen is the creator of We Bar None.
She first had the idea for the business when she was living and working in Canada in 2013. They had a huge range of healthy convenience foods which put Australia to shame. Ellen started making healthy snacks for herself, recipe testing and doing some deep research on nutrition. By the time she got back to Australia, she was ready to hit the ground running, and has been operating her business full time since 2015. In 2018 Ellen even became the first Victorian business to use 100% home compostable wrappers on her energy bars.
Her goal is to create snacks that are: delicious, nutritious, filling, ethical, and fit within a wide range of dietary choices and requirements.
