Words of Wisdom

Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals not only inspires you, it also allows you to make strong connections in your field and promote both yourself and what you do. It's important to have a small group of people that you can bounce ideas off of and grow with professionally.

Fun Fact

One day, Megan stopped into the San Antonio Museum of Art and discovered the French modern sculptor, Rodin. She was entranced by a short video detailing the painstaking wax bronze casting process Rodin used in order to create his beautiful sculptures. It takes many steps, expertise in several modalities, and the talented eye of the sculptor to complete one of those masterpieces.

She doesn’t claim to be a world-class artist, but she realized that the process was similar to that of what she was beginning to embark on with her side hustle.

Notes from Chris

Episode 72

Megan’s story follows an old, tried and true business model: “Teach what you know.” By teaching what you already know, whether it’s related to your profession or a hobby, you gain a built-in advantage: not only do you have the right knowledge, it's also probably something you care about.

You don’t necessarily have to be an “expert” on the subject, because there's always going to be someone out there who doesn't know as much as you do on a given topic.
