Start a Side-Gig and Turn it Into a New Career

May 29, 2017

This is one project that I had been thinking about for a while now, and I’d like to thank everybody who encouraged me to overcome my fear of the microphone already and just do it!
This being the inaugural episode of this new podcast, Second Breaks, I set the scene for the show so you know what to expect going forward.
