podcast Oct 14, 2021

If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that we can’t control what happens in our day jobs.

Our leverage is only as strong as our next best alternative. Building options and creative escape hatches into our lives gives us more confidence, freedom and a cushion in case things go wrong. There are many ways to create alternative sources of income and employment so that we never feel stuck or limited.
