Side Hustle Spotlight:
Amazon Kindle Publishing
You have a dream of writing, but don’t know where to start.
Welcome to Kindle Publishing!
Millions of people have written a book – fiction or nonfiction – and self-published it to the audience of Kindle and Amazon. There, the books are as available as the top sellers you find in book stores across the country. Imagine seeing your name on a book!
This is what I did. Many of you know that I was an Avon representative, and I hustled that business very hard. In fact, I am going to start selling again. I tried every suggestion my manager and her manager gave us, and some of them were fantastic. I found customers, and the products were selling themselves.
Or were they? Not without some sales help, I’m sure.
In my world, the idea behind MLM is not to entice others to sign up so that you make money. The idea of the MLMs that I get involved with is that I provide access to a product that someone wants, needs and enjoys. I would never sell or promote something that I did not enjoy, so I am happy to support that aspect of MLM.
I saw great success with my Avon business, and I stopped because I was too busy; I had started a new job; and I just didn’t want to hustle that hard anymore. My life is changing rapidly, and in light of the Side Hustle Spotlight challenges, I am trying a side hustle of Kindle Publishing.
I wrote a short book on 30 days’ worth of tasks you can do to build your business. Now, it may not work for every MLM, like Tupperware, leggings, etc., but most of these tasks will work for you. They would even work for small businesses that are selling non-MLM products.

My book is called: MLM & NETWORK MARKETING.
I almost didn’t want to write it because I know that people will succeed, and for those who believe in scarcity, that means a lot of people will learn how to earn and keep customers. I have since learned that there is an abundance of money in the universe and there’s enough for everyone.

So… back to the side hustle:
Step One: Write Book
It’s ok to have it in a .doc format, as the conversion team will turn it into your masterpiece. My one piece of advice is to have people read it, and note any edits or errors. You can also use a virtual assistant for this – and likely for a very reasonable price.
Step Two: Create a Book Cover
There are so many answers to “I’m not creative or artistic!”.
Use a program like Canva or PixMonkey to create a cover, or turn to a pay service like Fiverr or Upwork.
Step Three: Posting Your Work
Create an Amazon account and check out “Kindle Publishing”.
There are step-by-step instructions on how to upload your manuscript (aka book) and cover, and you have the opportunity to preview your work of art before it’s published.
Step Four: Marketing
It’s up to you on how much traffic you want to bring to your project. Kindle offers sales and promotions that will (hopefully) entice people to purchase and read your book. You get paid by the book purchases and by page reads for those who subscribe to Kindle Unlimited. There’s an analytics page to show how your work is performing.
Your book will show on Amazon just like any other book sold.
Review So Far:
This is an amazing passive income opportunity. You can promote your products as much or as little as you wish.
Originally, I had published my book under a different name, but after consulting with an influencer, I have since changed the title, the cover and reformatted the inside.
As I just published this new version about 24 hours ago, I am still waiting to see any results. I have promoted the book across my Facebook groups, and on Twitter. Hopefully, I will see some traction soon!
I also included a link to my blog in the book. I am hoping to increase traffic to my blog through this book, as I post a lot of resources on side hustle tools, like Freshbooks, Planners, and other recommended products that I’ve tried and loved.
