Welcome to the inaugural episode. YES!!! To launch the show, I’m joined by one of Fiverr’s all-time top earners, clocking in earnings of $2.7million since he’s been with the freelance services platform. Not bad for someone who as a young pastor wanted to grow his family and his ministry, but found himself $50,000 in debt, and reaching for whatever side hustles he could find to help him generate cash flow. I caught up with Joel Young just before he was leaving for a 1- month vacation (nice!), to talk about how he turned things around, and to uncover valuable lessons we can instantly apply.

It'll leave you inspired to take the next big step in your side hustle journey.

Be sure to catch the wrap-up at the end of the show, where I crystalize and recap 3 key takeaways from my conversation with Joel. Thanks for listening!
