Welcome to The Maple Money Show, the podcast that helps Canadians improve their personal finances to create lasting financial freedom. I’m your host, Tom Drake, the founder of Maple Money, where I’ve been writing about all things related to personal finance since 2009.
My guest this week is Philip Taylor, of PT Money. From college side hustler to full-time entrepreneur, Philip has been writing about legit ways to make more money for over a decade.
Starting a business while balancing the demands of a 9-5 career can be challenging. In this episode, Philip explains a number of ways you can make your business or side hustle fit your lifestyle.
Our conversation is wide-ranging, as we address the concepts of trading time for money, why freelancing can be the perfect side hustle for bloggers, and when and why downsizing your career just might be the best decision.
