Wouldn’t you love to wake up each morning with a joyful hunger and passion for your work? Today's Side Hustle Hero has found a way.

Lauren Eckhardt was really good at her day job in human resources and was being promoted up through the ranks, but she knew her heart was elsewhere. She had tried a number of side hustles that didn’t bring her the success AND fulfillment she sought.  It took a “triple meltdown moment”  in her kitchen, and a bout of covid to cause her to break through the chains of her old habit patterns which freed her to express her true gifts and finally start her dream side hustle. You’ll hear that it took her less than a year to see her company grow from 0 to 6-figures.

Her company Burning Soul Collective turns clients' life stories into powerful books that spark change.
