Entrepreneurship Lessons for People with Side Hustles and the Managers Leading Them

Hey Thrivers! Today, we are not just marking an anniversary; we are throwing a celebration! This is a special bonus episode dedicated to celebrating four incredible years of my entrepreneurial voyage. Can you believe it? It's been four years since I took that leap of faith and said goodbye to the corporate world on, August 19th, 2019.  Since then, I've been on an exhilarating voyage into the wild, wild west of entrepreneurship and in this episode, I'm pulling back the curtain to give you an unfiltered, no-holds-barred look at what it truly means to be an entrepreneur.

I'm not holding back, Thrivers. I'm taking you on a journey into the depths of my entrepreneurial story, so brace yourselves – because I'm sharing things that have never seen the light of day. From my innermost thoughts that shaped my path to private conversations with mentors, sponsors, and wise counselors who've guided me along the way. This is a rare peek behind the curtain, a chance to see the real story behind the milestones. Whether you're a fellow entrepreneur, a corporate leader, or simply someone curious about what it takes to make it as a business owner, you're in for an unforgettable ride.
