Julie Begbie is the founder of Happy Side Hustle

Her superpower is helping unfulfilled career women to uncover what makes them happy in life and work out how to monetise it as a side hustle.

Julie loves her day job as a Business Psychologist and Business Coach. It makes her happy and it pays the bills. She needs to make sensible decisions with that money, emergency funds, insurance, pensions… she has a side hustle to fund her holidays.

It is ‘bonus’ money that can be spent on the fun stuff.

Julie LOVES a holiday, especially a Disney World trip. She always likes to be on a countdown to her next one and as she gets older, she loves a bit of luxury.

She is regularly asked how she worked out what to do for her ‘happy side hustle’ and how she set it up, so she has developed a step by step programme to help others do the same and to promote #MissionHappiness rippling happiness to the world.

Julie is all about joy and she highly encourages happy side hustlers to use the money generated for stuff that brings joy – like dream holidays.

The world is just a better place when everyone spends more time feeling joyful.
