About the Episode:
In this first episode of the The Side Hustle Project, I want to talk to you about the importance of having a side hustle—why it’s no longer just a “nice-to-have” in today’s world, regardless of what your goals are for it.
If you want your side hustle to grow into a full-time business eventually, great. Getting started early is a must.
Building up the stability and predictability of your side income helps you mitigate the risk for when you finally axe your full-time income.
But even if you don’t want to leave the stability of your day job, one of the best ways to save more money each month for vacations, making a downpayment on a home or otherwise—is too well, earn more outside of just your day job.
We’re talking about all of the unexpected benefits that having a side hustle can bring you and what running your own side project will teach you about yourself.

[07:45] I talk about how having a side hustle gives you control over your own destiny—and options for your future.
