Notes from Chris
Episode 750THEMES & TAKEAWAYS: We’ve just finished week 3 of Season III! First up, I announced a new book a few days ago (check out the cover at the link). I'm very excited about it and look forward to sharing more with you soon. Second, after ten months of waiting, our online community is finally re-opening for new members. It's called Side Hustle Society, and we've recently moved to an all-new platform to better facilitate member discussion. Starting Tuesday, January 22nd at 9am Pacific, you can register at SideHustleSchool.com/society. There will be a limited time offer where you can get two months free, but only if you sign up this week. To hear more about this and everything else, check out today's Weekly Recap!
WHERE ARE THEY NOW: Today, we have an update from Michelle D’Avella, who was featured on the show in Ep. 115. Listen to the Weekly Recap to hear from Michelle herself! You can also check out her website, Pushing Beauty.
