It’s hard to be online these days and not see ads from people on sailboats or standing next to their luxury cars claiming to make hundreds of thousands of dollars a month in e-commerce...they make it sound so easy, right? 

Today’s guest is the perfect person to speak to the reality of what it takes to start and run a successful side hustle in e-commerce. But spoiler alert, her answer is sage advice for whatever is your industry of choice.
