Side-Hustle: Adam Lowe

April 2018

#nurtureyoursidehustle

Day job that pays the bills: Freelance copywriter.

Current Side-Hustle: Last Seen Online.

Your spirit animal: An owl.

The inspiration for your Side-Hustle: A combination of Serial (the podcast), Making a Murder and the human desire to peak at other people’s phones on the tube.

Your Side-Hustle Eureka! moment: What if you had the phone of a missing girl?

The first thing you did to make your Side-Hustle happen: Bought the URL and told lots of people, to gauge their reaction.

Initial pitfalls when you started your Side-Hustle: Finding time to sleep in between the day job and the hustle.

The biggest lesson you’ve taken away from starting your Side-Hustle: Don’t be afraid to talk about your idea with other people. Nobody is going to steal it.

Describe the first moment you thought, “Wow, this has actually turned from a dream into reality!” When Apple approved our app for the first time. It was a great feeling seeing it on the AppStore and then rise the charts.

The most rewarding part of your Side-Hustle: Receiving great app reviews and emails from real people (other than our mothers).

Advice you’d give your past-self starting a Side-Hustle: Stop thinking about it and do it sooner.

New developments in your Side-Hustle for us to look out for in the future: We’re launching a new app with more of the same. It’s called unrd (pronounced ‘unread’) and it’s launching later this year. Watch this space…
