Hustle Away Debt
I am excited to have my friend, David Carlson, owner of the blog Young Adult Money on the podcast to talk about his first book, Hustle Away Debt. For anyone who has listened to my show, you know that I am a huge fan of side hustles. For me, my main side hustle is freelance writing, and David was actually my first client.
I received an advance copy of his book, and I highly recommend it for anyone who is knew to side hustling or looking to expand your side hustling business. David gives lots of great ideas and tips for how to make more money on the side; and this extra money can be used to pay down debt or achieve any other financial goals you may have.
