Meet the Panelists for Get Your Side Gig On!

Thanks to these side-gig experts agreeing to be on our Get Your Side Gig On! Panel Discussion on March 27, 2024, at Flying Pig Improv, 3203 E. Douglas Ave. in Wichita, Kansas.

About the event: Looking for ways to add some extra income to your life? Whether they work to add a little disposable income to their piggy banks or depend on the extra income to pay their bills, 45% of Americans work some kind of side job to make more money on top of their main source of income. Once upon a time, people had to take part-time jobs to bring in extra money, but now, thanks to the Internet, the possibilities are endless!

In this informative panel discussion, we’ll discover how to get started, which side gigs pay off, what “passive” income really means, and how to turn your hobby into cash.

This event is open to the public, and everyone is welcome.

The registration fee is $10 at the door or in advance.

We are meeting at Flying Pig Improv at 3203 E. Douglas Ave. from 6 to 8 PM.
