MYM #70 Emily Gifford ~ Starting Her Entrepreneur Journey – Embracing the Side Hustle Grind!

Emily was so great and nice when I introduced her as Amy. I should have left that in for fun but it ended up in the blooper file.

Emily is a grinder and she is just starting on her entrepreneurial journey, she had great advice for others who are just starting or those who might be stuck. She is making things happen. I look forward to seeing what her outcome will be as she continues to shift the focus of her grind to her own business ventures.

We talked about getting outside of your comfort zone, minimalists and minimizing.

She shared how she is including her daughter in her current side hustle.

Emily has a huge desire to give back and has a desire to incorporate that in her business ventures.

Great podcast! Especially for those just beginning their journey or those thinking about getting started!
