Derrick Michaud is the Founder of Shelby Row Productions and host of Podlogix the Podcast, where he discusses podcasting for creators and producers. He joins us this week on the Side Hustle City podcast to explain what you will need to start your own. Everyone has knowledge to share. It might be what you've learned in your career or even a hobby you can teach others about. Why not start one using those skills and work at it like a side hustle?
Derrick was a touring musician for over 15 years. Through that time, Derrick constantly needed side hustles to pay the bills. Hosting trivia, driving for Uber, and independent auto appraising are just a few examples of side hustles. Derrick discovered Upwork.com, a job posting platform for entrepreneurs in search of another side hustle.
He quickly noticed a demand for podcast audio editing. After relentlessly proposing job openings, Derrick landed his first client in January 2018. This new hustle became priority #1 and grew to the point that in 2019, Derrick decided to open an LLC and scale the up business. He did this by building a team of talented contractors that would upgrade the service offerings outside of audio editing and free up time for Derrick to work ON the company instead of IN the company.
The company grew exponentially. After two years of operation, Shelby Row Productions went from a solopreneur operation to a six-figure grossing company that employs 12 contractors and has served for over 100 podcasts to date.
