You’re ready to jump into the waters of entrepreneurship…or maybe you aren’t, but you ARE curious. What questions should you ask yourself BEFORE you lay down your hard earned money to invest in inventory, systems, and people? Happy Friday! Today we ditch our usual Friday format and instead offer up a super special game show edition of SB! On today’s show we’ll quiz Chief Side Hustler and the host of the Side Hustle Show, Nick Loper, plus regular contributors Paula Pant (Afford Anything) and OG on THE questions an entrepreneur should ask before creating a start-up. Think you have what it takes to create your own business? Play along with our cast and find out!
After we have our fun with the game show, Joe will ring up Justin Pogue, the author behind Rental Secrets. We’ll talk to Justin on how to get more value out of your dollar by using insider knowledge to lower your rent and earn yourself more leverage.
Plus, with Nick Loper on the roundtable, we’ll answer a specially-themed entrepreneurial question from Reddit. The user writes that they’ll very possibly be fired from their day job soon, but that they’re starting up their own business and things are beginning to go well. What should they do?
