    Curiosity-Inspired Side Hustles with Stevan Sheets

    Curiosity-Inspired Side Hustles with Stevan Sheets

    In this episode of the More Than a Pastor Show I want to help you harness the power of curiosity in your life so you can create more income for your family. Stevan Sheets joins us. He’s a pastor who has experimented with a number of different side hustles throughout his 20 years of pastoral ministry. 

    I’ve known Stevan personally since 2008, and one of the things I’ve appreciated about him is his curiosity. It’s been a real catalyst for growth in his family life, pastoral ministry, and his entrepreneurial pursuits.
    Personally, I believe curiosity is one of the most important traits you need to be successful in business and ministry.
    So we’ll talk about that in today’s show. We’ll also learn how Stevan got into side hustling, what are some of the side hustles he’s launched, why he believes it’s important for pastors to find ways to create income outside of the church, what his church thinks about his side hustle pursuits, and a lot more.
