“Sometimes our day jobs don’t take us where we want to be in life, and that’s why more and more people are buckling up and hustling on the side. Ford’s versatile Transit Connect Wagon can help you with that.”
Perhaps you’re aware of my passion for vans and wagons, but I’m not referring to minivans, I’m talking about real vans. Nothing against minivans, but I love purposeful, convenient, and versatile vans like the Ford Transit and Transit Connect Wagon. Not only do they look cool (to me), but unlike typical minivans, they serve more purposes than just car-pooling children.
A few years ago I had a “normal” job. I went to work for about 8 to 10 hours a day, I clocked in, I clocked out, I got paid. It wasn’t exciting, but it was work, and more importantly—it paid the bills. Does that ring a bell? It probably does. According Nick Loper, founder of the Side Hustle Nation blog and podcast, stagnant wages, unfulfilling careers, and an overall shift in the employee mold has triggered a raise in side-jobs. Not just any side-job, but a side-hustle, meaning that people enjoy it, feel like they’re making an extra income, and also fulfilling their calling.
For my wife, Missi, side-hustle turned a just-for-fun DIY website into our main income a couple of years later, for me, my passion for cars has turned into full-time employment that unlike my old job, it makes me happy and takes me to incredible places. Sure, none of those involve a Transit Connect Wagon, but you catch my drift..
One dude whose side-hustle actually does involve a Transit Connect Wagon, is Devin Stovall of Lincoln Heights, California; winner of the Ford #Unminivan Giveaway.
Stovall is the proud owner of a 2016 Ford Transit Connect, and has already turned it into a side-hustlin’, money-makin’ machine. Stovall works full-time at a bicycle shop, so he took his knowledge and passion on the road to mountain bike trails and BMX parks in his Transit Connect Wagon. Stovall outiftted his vehicle with a roof rack, tow hitch, four-bike trailer, portable bicycle repair stand, roof-mounted cargo box, air compressor, tire inflator and professional 65-piece toolkit. As you can tell, the Transit Connect’s 104 cubit feet of storage space are good enough to transport his two daughters, but also sponsor his dreams.
On top of that, Stovall also plans on repairing wheelchairs onsite at senior centers and assisted-living facilities!
Hustle smarter, not harder!
