Episode 012 – Behind The Myths of Running a Business: Real Facts about the Entrepreneur Hustle

Listen Now:

What We Talk About

This episode was inspired by all the “gurus” out there that are teaching that you can grow a thriving business in 2 hours a day. The ones saying that you can hit 6 or 7-figure years in your first year. The ones that are selling a pipe dream in order to line their own pockets.

Will this episode be a bit of a rant? Probably. But frankly, we’re both so against this kind of selling that it burns us up and we wanted to really give you an insight into what it’s taken us to build our 6-figure businesses.
