A few weeks back, I wrote about my second newsletter around Cybersecurity soloprenuership.

As I mentioned, the whole point of this newsletter is to help Cybersecurity professionals build additional income streams alongside their 9-to-5 jobs.

This is becoming increasingly critical as Cybersecurity is no longer the layoff-proof, recession-proof haven it used to be

This week, I thought I would start listing down every single one of my income streams and side hustles that I have built beside my 9 to 5

I have tried many cybersecurity side-hustles over the years .

Some of them worked, while some of them flopped into the black void of the Internet.

In this post I plan to list down my current ones and then deep dive into each in the coming weeks.

I hope this gives you some insights and shows you what is possible with monetizing your cybersecurity knowledge.

Let’s see how it goes!
