Notes from Chris

Episode 673

This week, we had a listener email from Hazel in the UK.

Hazel has always been interested in starting her own side hustle, but can't land on an idea that she thinks that people will pay for. She'd love to start something that extends from her background in nutrition, but she's noticed that some of the nutrition businesses that we've talked about on the show are focused on specific diets or trends.

Her predicament is that she don't want to create a product—instead, she'd like to create a service, but she feels that the market may already be saturated with glamorous "Instagram ready" individuals who promote very strict diets.

To hear my feedback on this topic and more, check out today's Weekly Recap.


Today, we have an update from Chris Healy, who was featured on the show in Ep. 64.
