When I started side hustling, I was in a job I wasn’t too thrilled about.
Maybe it was a little bit of my millennial entitlement coming out… but I was frustrated by having to do the grunt work instead being able to help with grand plans for the team and department.
My thought was, if being a manager at a corporation involves making tough decisions and managing 6 and 7 figure budgets, then what better way to get experience doing that than doing it for my personal life and personal business endeavors.
How was I going to do this? My side hustles.
In my early 20s, I started hustling and wanted to succeed in my career and business. How would I do this? It was tough, but with a combination of focus and consistency, I got there. Now, I’m looking to give back and help others get there with this podcast.
