The term side hustle has gained a lot of attention lately. This is something outside of your full-time job that gives you more income and potentially more happiness.

To inspire us to think outside of the walls of our 9-5, I’ve invited the host of the Side Hustle Show, Nick Loper, on the show today. Nick and discuss the many benefits associated with a side hustle. Surprisingly, some of the best benefits have nothing to do with money.

  • Nick's journey from side hustle newbie to full-time business owner
  • The many benefits of a side hustle for the average worker
  • Different types of side hustles that people can consider when starting out
  • How Nick balances fatherhood, marriage and growing his small business
  • Advice for busy parents who want to make more money with a side hustle
