Helpful info and inspiration

Love listening to podcast. Chris has given insight into many different side hustles. Thanks for the great work

Mostly just ads…

While I used to enjoy this, the podcast has grown to be mostly just an advertising platform with a minor bit of content thrown in. I definitely understand the need to monetize, but the ratio is a little skewed here.

Having listened to many episodes, I’m just fascinated and inspired by all these unique stories and people and thought why the heck didn’t I think of that?!
