Great Information

I don’t know Chris but he seems like a genuinely awesome person who just happens to be a genius for a side hustler and business in general. He is like a walking, talking “What They Don’t Teach You At Harvard Business School (for side hustlers)”. Some episodes have a lot of take aways depending on you side hustle. There is truly a take away from every episode. He is really good at being able to narrow down on the issue, humbly give his analysis, yet, remains very open to other possibilities. He very good at understanding how to “build the airplane as you fly”. The best lessons I learned in college professors were from the ones who owned their own businesses...Chris is definitely the definition of this professor. Check it out if you are ready or not for a side hustle. If you are not he will definitely give you good motivation to create one, and, in his approachable way, help provide some wings for your side hustle.
