Notes from Chris
Episode 1210Should I quit my job and go full time with my hustle? It’s a great place to be: your side hustle is earning as much money as your job does. But what comes next … and how do you navigate this choice? Your answer might be different from someone else’s, but what might be helpful to know in making this decision? Like I said, it’s a good problem to have. Let’s talk it out with today’s caller.
"I’m excited AND scared about quitting my job. Over the past two years, I’ve built my side hustle to the point where I can quit my job. Yay! It’s been a long road, but now I’m bringing in almost as much money from my second paycheck as I do from my main one. I also think I can grow the business more with more time and attention. But I’m also terrified. Ack! Is this normal? In particular, I’m feeling stuck about the health insurance issue. Should I just not worry about it? Thanks and can't wait to hear what you have to say."Listen to today's episode to learn more...
