Business ramped up for today’s guest Jess Herring when an email from Twitch landed in her inbox. A new niche was opening up, and she not only recognized the opportunity, but pounced!
Today Jess earns between 7000- $12,000 per month, largely through her freelance work as a video editor. She’ll tell you how she did it and how she continues to increase sales.
It’s an inspiring story of wanting to provide for her son the opportunities that she never had growing up in extreme poverty.
Give it a listen and be inspired to “pounce” on your side hustle idea.
“There is no dream that is silly. There is no dream that is not worth chasing,” says Jess.
She’s living proof.
