Can you imagine being able to pay
off almost 90k in student loans in only 2.5 years? It may seem
impossible, but it can be done! On today's episode, I had the
opportunity to speak with Kevin Ha from The Financial Panther, a
blog about financial independence and side hustling in the sharing
and gig economy. Kevin was able to pay off his loans by choosing
not to live like a big shot lawyer, and it paid off,
In addition to paying off his loans,
Kevin starting experimenting with the gig economy on his free time.
He quickly learned that he could make a lot of money on the side
doing things that he enjoyed. After 5 years of being an attorney
and switching between three different jobs, he finally came to the
conclusion that practicing law just wasn't the right fit. He just
quit his job earlier this year after deciding to go all in on
blogging and side hustling, which makes him the newest member of
the #quitterclub. Now he pursues everything from Rover, to Post
Mates, and beyond.
I loved Kevin's story because he
decided to push against societal expectations of what type of work
is "acceptable". Not only that, Kevin shows us that it's possible
to create a steady source of income by doing something (or many
things) that bring you joy.
Here is what we chat about in this episode:
- How it's possible to create a steady income through side
- Why it's important to learn about your finances.
- Why you should push against societal expectations.
- And so much more!
