My guest today is Heather Bryan. Heather is a fierce entrepreneur and the only woman to design and develop an engraving system in the US (pretty cool right?!)
Heather caught the entrepreneurial bug from her father, who was a multi-passionate entrepreneur. Her journey started off back in 1999 when she and her father became pioneers of onsite engraving for the PGA Tour, USGA and PGA events around the globe. In 2014, her father retired and Heather decided to develop her own system and box it up for others to be able to have their own engraving businesses out of their homes. This system is perfect for stay-at-home moms, or anyone else who is interested in starting a business.
Heather shares some of the ups and downs she went through when trying to bring her idea to market. Because she's tenacious and believes in equal opportunity she perservered like the winner she is, and because of that many more people have a chance to create the life and business of their dreams.
Heather has a philosophy that first businesses should be project-based, meaning you complete a project and you get paid. This helps keep the new entrepreneur motivated and excited about the possiblities.
Heather's product is a business-in-a-box side hustle that includes the equipment and product sourcing. She created a side hustle for others from her side hustle of local onsite engraving, and the level of support she provides her clients is unparalleled.
We cover a lot in this interview, including:

Tracey Minutolo is a Side Hustle Coach and Financial Freedom Fighter who owns and runs the Side Hustler's Haven Community on Facebook. When we connected, it was a great day!

Tracey does an amazing job of providing leadership, guidance, and education to get the group amped up and to keep them engaged.
If you're a side hustler, you NEED to get some Tracey in your life!

In this first episode of The Side Hustle Rage Podcast, you'll learn who I am, and what brought this podcast to life.
So, this podcast isn't perfect. I'm lucky enough to have access to LB7 Studio for help with some of the episodes, but not all. Due to conflicting schedules, I'm going for it and recording some of these on the fly and I'm embracing the rough around the edges result.
The cool thing about working with LB7 Studio, is that it's owned and run by a side-hustler too - one I know very well because he's my manager at my corporate job - cool huh?!
