Episode 50 – The Fading Middle Class
This episode is actually based off of an article I read from Grant Cardone that was titled The Middle Class is Bullsh!t and it was so interesting that I thought would go over that article for the side hustle community. In the article he mentioned things that people need to understand about the middle class: You are either rich or you or poor. A 40-hour workweek is for slaves; you'll work double that for freedom. Life isn't fair and economies are even less so. Success will not depend on your education, but on your actions. The world doesn't care if you succeed or fail. You're owed nothing, deserve nothing and are entitle to nothing. You will have to learn how to sell, no matter how much you hate it. You won't get what you deserve. You'll get what you negotiate. You don't get paid to do what you love; you get paid to what others won't. You will be underpaid for most of your career, until you aren't, and then you will be paid so much you'll know it was all worth it. To review the full article click here. What is your favorite statement on the list? Tell me in the comment section below.

It is dedicated to helping those understand biology in a fun and simple way.

So he just focused on teaching on his interactive biology website which allows him to help people on his own terms. After awhile he got the itch to teach at the University level and was able to network his away into a meeting with the chair of the hiring department. Since he didn’t have a doctorate degree they weren’t even going to consider him for the position, but after showing him what he was already doing with Interactive Biology he was able to get an interview and eventually land the Job. After showing some success in the blogging sphere he was offered the opportunity to run BecomeABlogger.com which he gladly accepted. On that site he teaches people how to create a blog that matters. So for awhile he was running two blogs as side hustles while being a university professor, but he knew in the long run it wasn’t going to work. After some members in his family had medical issues and he wasn't able to visit them for as long as he wanted to due to his job he knew he had to quit and build his business full-time. So after starting blogging in 2008 this past summer, in 2014, he was able to walk away from his job and he shares this journey with us in this interview.

He has a background in writing and journalism. He actually loves his job and started his side hustler just to earn an extra $350 to pay his student loan bill. Once he got started with his part-time business, he found out it was worth so much more for him then making money to pay off debt. In this interview with Nathan Collier we will talk about: How he translated his skills into a side hustle How to get your first client How to stand out on Elance Why Elance has a bad rap Why testimonials are important What is the Groupon strategy Why you should focus on the lifetime value of the customer Why working for free can be a bad idea “I’m telling you I did a job for $5 and it changed my life” (Quote) “If you are thinking about jumping into the freelance world do anything you can to get someone to pay you a dollar, it’s so inspirational.” (Quote) What to do if your friends or family try to get your products/services for free What is a "work trade" and why you should do it "Once you get your first clients...you will get repeat work and then you will start getting referrals” (Quote) When you need to fire your client “...that will put my family years ahead of where I would have been otherwise if I just pursued a regular employment track” (Quote) Why you must diversify your income How your side hustle can improve your performance at your day job “Having options makes it easier to wake up for your job in your morning” (Quote) How networking is not what’s important “42 percent of college graduates never read another book after college” (Quote) How to find your “Edge” “Push yourself and see how far you can go. Everything you need lies outside of your comfort zone” (Quote) “Don’t stress yourself out too much, it’s just business” “Just take action even if you don’t know what you are doing” And much more...

Episode 35 – Living Your Life and Not The Life Someone Else Has Planned For You w/ AJ Leon
Allow me to introduce to you the most interesting man in the world and no I am not talking about the old man from the Dos Equis commercial. He nomads around the world and make things happen. He runs the coolest company, Misfit Inc, on this beautiful plant. He writes about living with intention, doing work that matters and changing the world. Basically he is a world traveling professional troublemaker. I could try to put together a blurb about my guest, but I think it will be best to actually use his own words: "I write about Living a Deliberate Life. What do I mean by this? For many years, I lived the life I was supposed to live, you know, the one that your parents and your teachers and your friends think you should. I graduated from university Summa Cum Laude with three degrees, and accepted a job offer at the largest firm I could find, paying the highest salary I could get. I did what you do in finance and jumped from firm to firm, following the money and climbing the proverbial ladder. There was this small issue, though. Like many people, it was never the life I actually wanted. On December 31, 2007, four days before my wedding, I stood in my corner office overlooking the Manhattan skyline with tears streaming down my face. I was trapped, living a life following social scripts, playing a game of monopoly I never cared about. I was up for a major promotion I could never walk away from. I was terrified – my life seemed to be sailing further away from who I really was. Then it struck me. I realized that if I didn’t leave right there and then, I was going to be that dude for the rest of my life. For the first time in my life, it occurred to me that I didn’t have to live the life I was supposed to live, I could live the one I was destined to live. I walked out. My very own emancipation. That was the day I decided to stop listening to everyone else, and to start changing the world." - AJ Leon In this interview with AJ Leon we talk about: How life is not a practice round What is the greatest regret that most people have Why the closest people to you will not support you “You are going to have to realize that those that love you are going to think you are crazy for thinking outside of the box” (Click to tweet) What did the first day look and feel like after quitting his six figure a year job Why you shouldn’t look to your past to determine your future How AJ changed the trajectory of his life “What do I want out of my life?
