Danielle Riddle

Musician in Boise, Idaho

Danielle Riddle is a Boise, Idaho native who faced an exciting challenge in her career. She wanted to leverage online platforms to create a secondary income stream for herself, i.e., a personal gig or hustle for some vacation money. However, her primary skill was being a musician. How would that translate into music into some product to sell online aside from selling the music itself? She had no record deal, and Danielle had no quality recording equipment. Getting started would have meant investing thousands of dollars, which defeated the whole point of a side hustle. So how were the two resources of her love for music and the Internet going to connect?

Luckily, she found an online course that taught her how to make high-quality recordings on her laptop - and started building an audience around her music simultaneously. Today, Danielle has built an online business around her music by creating helpful content and products that help other musicians do the same thing she did: use the Internet to make money with their music skills.
