Hey, I'm Rachel.

I was a terrible employee and despite the 6 figure salary I didn’t enjoy being stuck in the 9 – 5 rat race.  So I made some big changes. My escape route was through side hustles I started in my spare time, which eventually earned me enough money to replace my full time job.

The Facebook group Side Hustles NZ started in 2021 as a place for Kiwis to network and get support with their businesses. In 2023 I made the commitment to create a platform that shares more information and resources for anyone who wants to earn extra money and grow a business they enjoy working in. .

I get so much joy from seeing our members succeed with their goals, and love brainstorming ideas with anyone who is feeling stuck.

I truly believe that life is about so much more than clocking in and clocking out for 30 years, so why not take a chance and start chasing that lifestyle you’re dreaming of?
