Grow Your Side Hustle into a Full-Time Family Business – with Tom and Ariana Sylvester

More and more Americans are embracing the side hustle lately. The massive amount of debt in our country is forcing people to get a second or even a third gig to make ends meet.

But what if you start to really dig your gig?

Maybe you see this gig turning into a real “grown up” business …

How can we leave our 9 to 5’s and pursue our new passion while still providing for our family?

Never in my wildest dreams would I have expected the results that came from producing this little weekly podcast. I’ve grown personally, professionally and really tested myself as an entrepreneur.

Popularized by extreme frugality rock stars like Mr. Money Mustache, the Mad Fientist and Jacob from Early Retirement Extreme, the Financial Independence or FIRE community has grown in popularity over the past 5-10 years.

This is a subset of the personal finance world that encourages earning a solid income early in your life, saving a boat load of cash and retiring earlier than most of your peers.

For a frugal guy like me, this concept makes a ton of sense. Work hard, save and invest early so you can enjoy the majority of your life doing what you love.

But what happens when you’ve retired early? You still need something. You need a purpose or a goal to work toward.
