What’s up, y’all! Stumbled across this old interview I did a few years ago for SideGigStartup.com on how I became an entrepreneur/blogger full-time, and thought it had a lot of good financial and career nuggets in it that you might like.

And unfortunately you can’t have a conversation with anyone without them bringing it up! But do you know what people AREN’T freaking out about left and right? Their debt problems.
