Hi, I’m Gavin Griffiths

Serial entrepreneur, thinker, writer, father, someone who looks at life slightly differently.

Most people on the internet will try and sell you a dream that doesn’t work and a scheme that relieves you of your cash.  I won’t. This site is entirely free to use. You can take what you want from it and use it to help you. I hope if it helps and you follow the steps then you’ll benefit and you’ll tell other people.

Occasionally I may ask you to buy a book.  If you like my writing and like what I say I hope you’ll buy it.  If you don’t that’s OK.

Over 50,000 people have signed up to The Sideline Effect, sharing and adopting strategies to change the way they work, they way they earn money. This isn’t about getting rich quick, it’s about changing the way you think to take control of your life.

Teenagers are setting business up from their bedrooms, pensioners are creating enterprises from their kitchen tables, you don’t have to be Richard Branson to create a sideline revenue stream that can completely transform your life.

And the great thing about a sideline is that you don’t have to give up your job or remortgage your house to do it. You just need a plan and a bit of energy. Jump on board!


The way we work and make a living has changed more in the past decade than in the preceding 1000 years. There are huge opportunities to create businesses and revenue.


THE LAST thing you should do is think about giving up your job to follow your dream … because you’ll never do it!


TO MAKE REAL CHANGE, (change you actually do, rather than dream about) you need to plot a course, set goals and prepare yourself.


There are lots of experts and websites that promise to make you rich quick.

Nearly all of them are designed with one thing in mind, to part you as quickly as possible from your cash.


The world is changing at a dizzying pace. Certainties like job security, a regular salary that continues to go up, career advancement, corporate loyalty (to the employee!)are all things of the past

I came up with the idea for this website 7 years ago and since then I’ve watched the world change at a rapid pace.

The middle classes are being shredded, caught in a perfect storm between young people doing their work for less, a global workforce and automation.

You can wait for the rug to be pulled out from underneath you or you can start preparing your future by developing income strategies that don’t see you dependent on one job.


“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives.  It is the one that is most adaptable to change.” Charles Darwin

Are you ready for change?

There has never been another time in history where it has been possible to develop sideline forms of revenue.

From where I sit in my smalls study in Stratford upon Avon I can reach out globally to 3 billion people online.  These people are all buying.

Technology thats costs nearly nothing to use is a click away, enabling me to start a business this morning that can have clients by this afternoon.
