The economic and business landscape is changing at a rate never seen before. The rapid advancement of technology and increase in entrepreneurial innovation has filled the world a plethora of opportunities for individuals to earn some extra income alongside of their traditional jobs- sometimes called “side-hustles”. One individual taking full-advantage of the “side-hustle” economy is Alysha Bush and she has managed to transform her “side-hustle” into a growing global empire.
Alysha Bush grew up in the small town of Newburg, Oregon. In high school Alysha was a three-sport athlete. She was particularly successful in the sport of swimming and even broke a state-wide record. This drive for success earned her a full scholarship to Arizona State University, where she was named captain of the swimming team under the guidance of her coach Olympian Michael Phelps.
As is this case with so many Millennial aged college graduates, Alysha found herself living what felt like the same day on repeat over and over again. Working multiple unfulfilling job each day to simply make ends meet with no passion or lifestyle. Always an avid reader, Alysha was introduced the book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki where she was introduced to the concept of building wealth through asset development instead of simply trading time for money. Alysha credits the concepts from this book for changing the path of her life, she now knew she was going to apply these concepts, even if she did not exactly in what way yet.
While still working three jobs Alysha was introduced the concept of making money trading in the foreign exchange market. Initially, this was a side hustle that was squeezed into the cracks of her schedule in hopes of one day replacing the jobs all together. Little did she know, it would only take 4 short months before she would be able to make the leap into a full-time currency trader. As Alysha’s skills a trader continue to sharpen, she is now sharing resources, guidance, and opportunity to a global network of eager traders.
What was once a “side-hustle” with aspirations of just replacing a job or two has now grown into a global business with over 1800+ customers, generating over a six-figure income. When asked what the most rewarding part of growing this business, Alysha replied with one of her favorite quotes “service to many, leads to greatness”. Alysha believes that her ability to guide others on their journey to financial freedom is the reason why she can experience so much of it now. Alysha’s ability to turn a side hustle into an empire has allowed her to spend more time focusing on her dream of becoming an actress.
