Episode 32: The #SideHustle (featuring Michael Tonart)

Updated: Sep 4, 2019

It's not about your 9 am to 5 pm, but your 5 pm to 9 pm. What has your side hustle taught you?

Mike and I are front in center in this photo - circa 2009. You could say this was the birth of DJ Tonez - playing music at campus events and thinking we were kings of the world. Good times!

Out of nowhere one day I get a text from Michael which read something like - "hey, posted an article on LinkedIn and it's getting a lot of action. I tagged you in it. Would love your perspective."

I thought to myself - interesting. I'll get to that later (I happened to be working at the main hustle at that time).

When I took a look over my lunch break I was pretty blown away. This simple post from Mike had hundreds of comments and shares. The post was of a Wall Street Journal article that discussed people with what's become popularized as the 'side hustle.' People who have a regular job and then moonlight as something or someone completely different.

After reading the article, and all of the comments on Mike's post, I knew I had to record an episode breaking this down with him. Mike's side hustle is his DJ business (DJ Tonez) and you're currently reading, and soon to be listening to, mine.

I love this episode because I think it speaks volumes about the world we live in. There has never been a time where there has been so many resources readily available to those who are willing to put in the work.

You can learn ANYTHING on the internet. The only reason we don't is the fact that we all find some sort of comfort in excuses.

So check out this episode and let me know what you think. If you have a Side Hustle - I want to talk to you! I think I could have a whole series of episodes diving into what people do to fill some sort of void in their lives outside of their traditional work hours.
