Episode 58 | Taking your Side-Hustle Full-Time
In this episode I’m telling the story of how I escaped my 9-5 and took my side-hustle full-time, as well as how I even got my side-hustle to the stage where I was ready to take the leap. This is the full back story, the whole winding path I took to escaping my 9-5. There were multiple side-hustles, multiple failures, multiple discoveries along the way.
I’ve also had lots of questions via instagram about planning to leave your 9-5, how to scale your side-hustle, how to prepare finically - all of the kind of questions that come up when you start to think about taking your side-hustle full-time, which I answer towards the end of tis episode.
