“I say “side biz” — The word “hustle” gives the impression of having to be constantly on the go or  you won’t grow.”

- CJ

If you’re working a 9to5, that means that you’re spending most of your time working on SOMEONE ELSE’s dream. But while building your biz alongside your 9to5 can be complicated, it can also come with some serious benefits, like valuable training or learning opportunities that you can leverage to help you grow your own biz more quickly.

Many, MANY womxn are growing successful side businesses while still working in their 9to5s… but many also feel boxed in by their 9to5s and are tired of feeling like they’re stuck in a cubicle. 

So, what will it take to move your side biz to the main stage??

In this episode, I dig into the employee mindset shift you need to make, the importance of finding balance, and how to come up with your 9to5 exit strategy. If you’re tired of the 9to5 grind and want to turn your passion into PROFIT, tune in now!
