Such an inspiring stories

I love the honesty with which each of the guests speak. I agree that everyone needs a side hustle. Who knows it just may replace your job and be even more successful.

Really Insightful & Encouraging

I love how Chris encourages everyone to create their own unique side hustle. He believes in “regular people” and wants everyone to create their own security & independence.

I listen to learn about Side Hustles but also live for the puns. Thanks, Chris for this terrific podcast.
