    Justin Tan is a Side Hustle Show listener who was inspired by Russ Perry’s story in Episode 248 of how he began Design Pickle.
    In 2014, Russ was running a creative agency when he started to hate everything about it. Not wanting to feel like a prisoner of his own creation, he sought out a new business model, one that offered reliable, affordable, and scalable creative work at a flat rate.
    Justin took inspiration from that model and applied it to video editing. And so, Video Husky was born.
    Justin’s story is one of many examples of what can happen when you combine a demonstrable business model with a novel idea and an untapped market.

Helpful but way to fast!

I really like the Side Hustle Nation podcast but Nick is speaking way too fast for me. He gives so much helpful information but he doesn't pause between sentences.

The BEST Side Hustle Podcast 🏆

I crossed paths with Nick at a conference a few years ago and he and the podcast have been on my radar ever since. And while I've always been interested the work he does, I've only recently started listening to the podcast with more regularity.

So glad I finally did, as the show is full of gold, even as someone who's been running an online business for the past 5 years. There are a number of similar shows out there but Nick's experience, personality and perspective really set this show apart.

If you're looking to start or grow a side-hustle, or full-time biz, do yourself a favour and check this show out!
