Have you ever had a side hustle? Or are you thinking about adding one on? This week we chat with Dannie Lynn Fountain, founder of the #sidehustlegal movement. We dive into many aspects of the side hustle: the workload, the (potential) stigma, setting boundaries, time management, and more! Also, we sidetrack into business travel, coffee dates and our mutual love for The Wing, as you do. Listen in and learn from the fabulous brain & heart of Dannie! Let’s talk it out!
