Side Hustle Webinar Series – What Do YOU Want?

This past weekend at the Baltimore Association of Black Journalists Professional Review event, a group of us were chatting about our side hustles and how that money comes in handy. We then started talking about folks in journalism and communications who don’t have them — but should.

Skip to March 18, where I posted the following question on my Facebook page: For my journalism/communications friends: do you have a side hustle? What is it? For those who don’t, do you want one? Is it time for a webinar on getting that side hustle?

I got a whopping 47 (and counting) responses, plus public and private pleas to do the webinar. As someone who fell into her side hustle quite by accident, I thought it would be a great idea to do a series of webinars to help those looking to start a side hustle or improve their game in their current side hustle.

So the NABJ Digital Journalism Task Force, in partnership with the Diverse Social Media Editors and Digital Journalists Facebook group and AllDigitrocracy.org, will do a series to help people with their side hustled. But we need your help to know what you want in a webinar series. So we’d appreciate it if you could answer this quick 7-question survey so we know what you want and when.  And watch this space for more details!
