#04 - Enzo Lombard - Side Hustle
Enzo Lombard is an Artist, Performer, and Author of Louisiana Fairytales. We’ve been Facebook friends for over ten years, but we never met until I flew down to SF from PDX to interview him at his SF apartment the week before Pride. I started following his facebook posts more when he accidentally fell into the vacation rental business. I affectionately titled his facebook posts as “Side Hustle with Enzo Lombard”. Each post read like a TV show. Enzo created a fantastic sustainable business model that employers should be paying attention to. He’s also got a new solo performance show in the works— Louisiana Fairytales which is the sequel to Love Humiliation in Karaoke.

In 2010, It started out as just another personal trainer that I would meet weekly. During a breakup in 2011, the few joys at the time were training sessions with TJ and my 12 step recovery. He gave me the space I needed to cry as I did burpees, crunches, to help process my hurt. His approach is more than just “Looking Good”. We talk about Health and Fitness resources for low income and underserved populations.
