This is Season Four, Episode Eight. It's our final episode in our Summer series about underearning, and yet, it's the most important topic of all - getting the support you need to succeed. I bust the "self-made" myth bubble in this episode, because regardless of whether we start at the bottom or now, we all need people to help make our dreams come true. Support is critical. Whether that's your personal environment, or surrounding yourself with the right kind of people, help is a non-negotiable when you're building your Noble Empire.
If you need more structure to get the support you need, or more practice in asking for help, join us in A-Club. You'll get a lot out of our tight-knit community of folks. We're all in there, working toward owning our dreams, one step at a time.

If you're like many of the creative entrepreneurs I know, you're probably working a side-hustle. Your day job is also probably not exactly what you thought it would be when you went for that interview. The pay may be okay (maybe). The hours might not be that bad (well... then again). But the opportunities, the […]
