So...this podcast gives you a “behind the scenes” look at the side hustles, start-ups and businesses that I have worked on over the years.
Showing you the pitfalls of starting and working on a side business, so you can learn from my mistakes and launch your own successful side hustle.
I’ve spent over a decade working on side hustles and projects, hoping to finally find that one thing that takes off. So I can leave the constraints of the “Rat Race”, the 9-5 grind. I’m not saying I’ve been successful, yet. I’m still trying to find my one thing.

    #66 - Stop being so harsh on yourself and the concept of Skill Stacking

    #66 - Stop being so harsh on yourself and the concept of Skill Stacking

    Getting a side hustle or side project off the ground is hard.

    If you're like me, you may be overly critical of yourself. I've been told by a close friend that I'm too harsh on myself.

    In this episode I talk about this, and what I'm doing to help stop putting too much pressure on myself. I also introduce the concept of "Skill Stacking" or "Talent Stacking" which may help you think about the work you are doing differently.

    Even though things may not be going as you would like, there are still benefits in doing the work

    Hope this helps you.

    #65 - Become unconstrained and break free from the social mantra with Myles Wakeham

    #65 - Become unconstrained and break free from the social mantra with Myles Wakeham

    In this episode, I'm excited to welcome Myles Wakeham onto the podcast.

    Before we started recording this episode. Myles and I were chatting and we are kindred spirits in many ways.

    Like me, Myles was a software developer for many years. Before he got fed up with the merry-go-round of developing software, trying to sell it. Then go back and improve it. It's a constant cycle.

    We discuss Myles' amazing journey from learning to code as a youngster, through to moving to L.A.

    Myles is now an author and podcast host and helps many people to think about how they can "be unconstrained".

    It was interesting to hear Myles' thoughts on software development. The banking system, how to earn money without working harder and harder.

    Oh, and that software developers rule the world.

    Eye-opening stuff.

    Thanks to Myles for being a guest on the podcast.

    #64 - What do you do when your motivation and productivity hits the wall

    #64 - What do you do when your motivation and productivity hits the wall

    Getting a side hustle or side project off the ground is hard.

    You won't always have the discipline, motivation, or energy to be as productive as you would like.

    This has happened to me on many occasions. Over the last 6 to 8 weeks, my motivation and productivity levels have dropped.

    In this episode, I talk about what I've been thinking about and doing, while motivation levels are so low.

    As well as discussing 3 things that I've put in place to help me still move forward while I feeling like this.

    Hope this helps you.

    #63 - Stopping being so proud and stubborn to move forward by asking for help

    #63 - Stopping being so proud and stubborn to move forward by asking for help

    What happens when you start feeling stuck? You are making progress but aren't sure how to move forward, feeling lost and overwhelmed, and what to do next?

    This has been happening to me more and more recently. I'm trying to learn as I go, but it's slow and I'm not sure how to move forward.

    Many people have told me that I'm stubborn. Which I am. As well as being too proud to ask for help. Which is also true.

    So over the last few weeks, I've swallowed my pride, admitting that I need help. Reaching out to a few people to see if they can help.

    In this episode, I discuss my feelings going through these emotions with Elementary Analytics

    #62 - Use curiosity to your advantage to dig deeper and find a problem to solve with Kym Dakin

    #62 - Use curiosity to your advantage to dig deeper and find a problem to solve with Kym Dakin

    In this episode, I'm excited to welcome Kym Dakin onto the podcast.

    Like many people during the Pandemic of 2020. Kym found that business had dried up. So she used to the time to learn new skills and to sidestep into a different business model.

    We discuss what Kym has learned and how she has got a software-based product out to the world. Even though she isn't from a technical background.

    It was interesting to hear Kym's thoughts on how women learn differently from men. And how a lot of online learning platforms aren't designed to support this form of learning.

    Eye opening stuff.

    Thanks to Kym for being a guest on the podcast.

    It was an honour and a privilege.

    #61 - The rollercoaster of emotions after getting your first paying customer

    #61 - The rollercoaster of emotions after getting your first paying customer

    I don't think you can beat the experience of getting that email or notification for the first time you get a paying customer. In my case when someone becomes a paying subscriber to one of my software products.

    Running a side hustle, a software-based one is like being on a rollercoaster blindfolded. There are amazing highs and brutal lows. Like when someone wants to cancel their account for the first time.
