Words of Wisdom

Brianna’s success begins from recognizing that something she wanted was something that other people might want too. Then, instead of just recognizing or noticing that, she took action on it and ended up having a tremendous first hustle experience in opening the pop-up shop.

Remember the closing tagline for Side Hustle School: inspiration is good, but inspiration combined with action is much better.

Fun Fact

Brianna worked hard. Outside of one day over the course of the whole month, she was there 12 hours a day, and she'd come home and answer emails and get ready for the next day.

This kind of schedule is probably not sustainable in the long-term, but that’s OK. It’s a holiday pop-up shop that's only open for a limited amount of time. It was also a major opportunity for Brianna and she was thrilled to do it!
