Tony Whatley On Becoming A Side Hustle Millionaire

Tony Whatley is an entrepreneur, business mentor, best-selling author, podcast host, and speaker. He is best known as Co-Founder of LS1Tech, an online automotive community which grew into the largest of its kind. This website grew to over 300,000 registered members, and was later sold for millions, in only 5 years. Amazingly… it was just his part-time business!

In this incredible show, Tony talks to Nick about the ways in which he achieved the feat of becoming a millionaire through his side hustle, how a near-death experience caused him to re-evaluate his life completely, and how you can build a a side business that creates financial freedom.


  • When we travel through the business journey on the rails of the corporate model, we often aim for promotion or salary increases, not realising until we achieve them that these things rarely bring fulfilment.
  • When we recognise our talents, and learn to assess them using our own autonomy instead of waiting for others to validate us, we create the kind of energy we need to start reaching higher and moving faster.
  • Determining to become a success is about asking ourselves the question – am I where I want to be? And if the answer is no, then it’s about finding the discipline to do more.
  • Consider the legacy that we would leave behind if we were to depart immediately. Is the story that others would tell about you, the one you would write? If the answer is no, then it’s time to start rewriting that story in your own words.


‘I’m a teacher. I love to learn, but I love to teach’

‘I can visualise things, I can create the action plan, and go and execute that to get results!’

‘I was really honest with myself. I asked “Am I where I want to be?”‘

‘There was a blinding spotlight that this was not enough’
