Love Notes

Episode 3: How To Take Your 80's Childhood and Turn it Into Your Passion Project

An episode of Love Notes

By Lori Anne Mayton Burke
Are you a person with a dream to do what you love and actually make money doing it? Are you a full time mom, teacher, worker, salesperson who is building someone else's dream and would rather build your own dream? This is the podcast where I find fantastic guests and ask them about their zone of creativity and how they are making their dreams come true little by little by saying YES to their side hustle. I'll occasionally do a solo episode and we'll have some real talk about what's on my heart and we'll get some clarity on things that you relate to!
