start a side hustle


The ONLY course you need to take if you've ever wanted to start your own side business.


If you have ever had a twinkle of excitement around starting a side hustle, now is the time to give into that feeling.

With so much unknown in the world right now, having a second source of income dripping into your bank account from a business you create will give you extra financial security.

Plus, creating something that you own and operate pushes you forward on a new adventure in life that shakes up your world in a good way.

It's your turn to start a side hustle that generates income, taps into a skill-hobby-passion, and above all else, gives you PURPOSE in life.

Meet the course



Before you start a side hustle, you have to fully understand yourself so you can tap into your personal strengths and find inspiration from the things in life you've already accomplished. This section will help you understand who you are as an entrepreneur and what your unique value will be as you start your business.



Whether you already have an idea or you just have an urge to create a side hustle, this section will help you with idea generation, refining the idea you pick so it's a standout business, and it will help you pick what kind of hustle will allow you to scale and grow your audience over time.



This section teaches you everything you need to know about setting up a business—starting with determining a standout idea and refining your business plus strategizing what packages you will offer and how much you will charge your clients. It will also teach you the easiest ways to set up a website, a customer service portal, and a payment processing tool to get your hustle up and running with a landing page.



In this section, you will learn how to brand your business so it stands out in the industry—from picking a unique name and logo to crafting a brand story and tagline that'll keep the world intrigued by the business you started.



Learning how to get clients is not easy. This section will teach you how to stand out from competitors, where to go to successfully market yourself when you don't have a large budget, and how to get referrals from other affiliates.

I learned this the hard way . . .

Jobs aren't loyal to employees.

At any time, for any reason, your boss can say farewell, and you can find yourself unemployed. It's happened to me many times before.

Yes, even that job you've worked at for 5 years. Yes, even if you won Employee of the Quarter last month. Yes, even if your boss told you that your job is safe. There is never any guarantee.

So what does that mean?

Don't panic.

Stay loyal to yourself. Get prepared now for what could come and also for what you want to happen with your own career. Hint: that means more than just a resume and cover letter in 2021. It means taking a skill, passion, or even hobby and turning it into a money-making side hustle.

Even if you work for yourself, there's so much unknown, and there's so much competition. Refine your freelance business or side hustle into one that stands out and attracts new customers.

This course is for you if

You've thought about starting a side hustle but needed direction and a push to get started.

If we've never met before, hello! I'm Jen Glantz: the founder of the viral business Bridesmaid for Hire, the creator of the project Finally the Bride, the founder of the blog The Things I Learned From, the voice of the podcast You're Not Getting Any Younger, the founder of the coaching biz Jen & Juice, and the author of the Amazon best-selling books All My Friends Are Engaged and Always a Bridesmaid (for Hire), which was published by Simon and Schuster.

For the past 5 years, I've instructed over 500 workshops for over 30,000 people in NYC, LA, Denver, Austin, New Orleans, and many more cities. But here is the thing: maybe you don't live near a spot where you can get access to workshops in person, or maybe you do, but they don't work out with your schedule. Maybe you're the kind of person who likes to learn in their own environment on their own time. That's why I decided to take my most popular workshops and training and package them into digestible and actionable courses that will change your to-do list, your game plan, and—seriously—your life.

Meet the instructor

Google, HBO, SXSW, Wharton School of Business, Hyatt Hotel, ESPN, Brooklyn Brewery, and 100+ other companies, conferences, and clients have hired me to teach their audiences. Now it's time for you to get that same powerful information from the comfort of your couch.

Making an investment in yourself is something you do all the time. That haircut, those shoes, how about that Instagram-able candy museum? Invest in something that will continue to help and change you for days, weeks, months, and years to come. These courses are less expensive than your coffee bill for the quarter, the music festival you almost bought tickets to, or the luggage that you almost ordered just to stick under your bed for most of the year.

Invest in something for yourself that matters, that makes you move, that moves you.

See you inside the course!

Your Instructor,
Jen Glantz

People Called Me Crazy...

I started Bridesmaid for Hire at the end of June in 2014.

When news of the company went viral, even after I had booked a handful of weddings, built a website, and established a business plan, people still called me crazy.
Friends laughed in my face and called this the joke of the century when I told them about my new business.
Strangers, even to this day, call me a loser for starting this business.
I often heard, "That's funny. Don't quit your day job."
Want to know what happened?
I didn't listen to anyone.
I pushed forward with the business.
I worked with hundreds of people, had 50,000 people apply to work for the company, created a vertical to help maids of honor, started a training program to teach people how to start a similar business, went on to write a book (published by Simon and Schuster) about my life as a professional bridesmaid, sold a TV show pilot and a reality show pilot, got laid off from the job people told me not to quit, and that year, doubled my business in size and profit.
The business is now 6 years old.
What I have learned? Let people call you crazy. Never listen to them. Trust yourself and your ideas. Even if they seem goofy to others.
