Get That Side Hustle

The advantage of 2020 over the rest of history is this: the internet.  You could go start a business tonight, for free, just on your phone. And, if it doesn’t work, you can change it next week. That doesn’t work either? Change it the week after. You can start a blog today. You could go…
