Hey, I'm Rachel.

Subconsciously I’ve always known that I was an entrepreneur. Working 9 – 5 in an office never suited me. But it took until I was 32 before I finally gathered up the courage to step full time into self employment, side hustles, and the business world. 

I made some big changes. My escape route started through side hustles I launched in my spare time while working a full time job. Eventually they earned me enough money to replace my full time job, which meant I was free!

I started the Facebook group Side Hustles NZ in 2021 as a place to help other Kiwi’s who wanted to earn extra money and grow businesses they enjoy working in, while maintaining their work/life balance. I get so much joy from seeing our members succeed with their business goals, and love brainstorming ideas with anyone who is feeling stuck.

As with all businesses, it is slowly growing and evolving as we get a better understanding of what our members need and how we can serve them best.

I truely 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?
