    Episode 20: "Just F***ing Do It!" With Gaby Cadena

    Millennials are achieving massive success in the business world today. Unlike their predecessors, millennials are begging the question, is there more to life than an 8-5 job? Rather than demonizing technology, millennials are tapping into its unlimited potential to build successful businesses. For the first time, The Dumpster Fire Project talks with a young, up-and-coming entrepreneur. Gaby Cadena works a full time day job but is quietly building a successful photography business on the side. Gaby talks about how her rebellious side fuels her ambition in pursuing her passion. Gaby also speaks to the importance of patience and how she continues to persist in building her business in spite of past failures. Young entrepreneurs will draw inspiration from Gaby’s story while old dogs may learn some new tricks.

Great, first-person commentary on the trials of going out on your own.

I am an avid listener of entrepreneurial / financial independence podcasts and am so happy these two have put this together.

It’s refreshing to hear the ins and outs of entrepreneurship from those that are currently putting themselves out there, with as much on the line as their audience.

Erik and Murray are a great pair of smart, empathetic podcasters and I find it very easy to map their own experiences to my own life.

Looking forward to hearing the rest of their library, as well as any future episodes they put out!!
