How A Promotion Has Me Adjusting My Side Hustle
Side hustles can be amazing. They can also make you crazy if you do something just for the money. You have to find things in life that you love. I've been side hustling for a few years and have always been torn. I love my day job. I love my side hustle. Recently, I got a promotion at my day job that I didn't see coming. It's thrown my day job, side hustling balance way off as I familiarize myself with a new department and understand the work that I am now responsible to get done. In this episode, I talk about how I am managing that balance and how it's going so far. Episode Sponsor Check out my FREE Weekend Website Challenge >

Not Feeling Alone When You Work Alone
When you operate as a solopreneur it can get lonely. The work can keep you isolated. One of the best things I've found to keep me motivated, on the edge of creativity, and happy has been finding awesome communities.  Elegant Themes has built an incredible community around the Divi theme and so many great developers and content creators have built their own Divi communities as well.  Another major connection point has been podcast like the Josh Hall Web Design Show and Divi Chat.  There are also some incredible YouTube channels for education and the communities built in the chat can be awesome too...

The Cost of Choosing The Wrong Theme
Businesses succeed or fail based on strength of their processes. Choosing the right theme framework to use for your website design projects is as critical a choice as the hosting platform.  Today we are talking about a few different builders, the cost associated with them both in the short and long term. We'll talk positives and negatives of sticking with a single theme and you'll walk away from this episode with clear guidance on which approach is the most effective way.

How Should I Price Projects?
Pricing is the hardest thing to nail down. Go too low and people think you're cheap. Go too high and expectations can easily misalign with what's delivered. The right number is never easy to find and it will take time, but the right approach to pricing is as important as the actual price.  We discuss 4 ways to price your projects and I share the path I've recently taken for pricing in my web design company.  Listen up and let's start the conversation over at See you there...

The Mental Struggles Associated With Starting A Side Hustle
Starting something of your own can be anxiety-inducing. The doubt creeps in. The insecurity creeps in. We start asking ourselves questions designed to stop us in our tracks... What will my boss think? Am I not dedicated anymore? Will I get fired from my current gig? What will my friends think? Will people judge me if I put myself out there on camera? Will I make enough money to survive? Should my side hustle ever become full-time and if so, when? You're not alone with those feelings. Today I share my insight and experience getting through some of those questions.
