MYM #71 Jan Paxman ~ I Can – I Can – I Can

Jan Paxman turned her side hustle into her main hustle and then started another side hustle. She is a great example of what can happen with if you just put yourself out there and take action.

Her first side hustle was health coaching. Out of necessity she turned that into her main hustle. She helps people lose weight, get the blood sugar under control and get all around Healthy.

But why stop there? lets start another side hustle. Enter Latter Day Armor! She had a thought one day as she was putting a cartoon band aid on person, “What if we had Gospel band aids that depicted Gospel stories and that would create Gospel conversations with your kids. She took that idea and ran with it.

Jan shares her up and down experiences from these two ventures. Since it is the beginning of the holidays we talked about the power of gratitude and what it means to her.

Great interview!
