330: ​​What I’ve Learned 5 Years Into Entrepreneurship

This week I’m walking you down the winding path I took to get Side Hustle Pro to where it is today. Starting in the corporate world at companies like NPR and Google, it took me several years and several career experiences to realize that I was meant for entrepreneurship. Once I decided to be my own boss, I had to develop a whole new set of skills. 

In this episode, I’m giving you the inside look into:

  • How and why I decided to quit my job and become a full time entrepreneur 
  • Why I went back to school to get my MBA, and still continue to take courses, read, and seek out mentors to develop my business skills 
  • The honest reality of entrepreneurship and how I’ve navigated it’s pros and cons

Nicaila Matthews-Okome

Hi! I’m Nicaila, the Creator and Host of the Side Hustle Pro Podcast. I started Side Hustle Pro when I was a side hustler myself. I was a digital marketer at NPR by day, side hustler by night. Through the powerful stories shared on this show and the courage to launch my own initiatives, I was able to quit my own job and go full time with Side Hustle Pro.
