“We often take our talents for granted and assume that other people have the same set of skills as we do, so we downplay the time, energy, and passion we’ve invested to learn. We assume that everyone knows what we know, and that’s just not the truth…” 

In this episode, a perfect topic for our audience – leadership in the most simple yet effective form. We talk about how driven we are with life, and how well we pursue our goals especially for those who are motivated by contribution and impact, despite the norms of society and our immediate environment.

Joining us this week is someone who dared to challenge issues he found at work and in his community to create a version of his life that is better suited for him and the legacy he wants to leave this world. We talk about being self-driven, and how to influence people to become more driven and effective.   

To get you pumped, my guest will also share how he built a side hustle that turned out to be a million-dollar business, and how he now leads people to do the same!


Tony Whatley became known as “The Side Hustle Millionaire” after his book with the same title became a #1 best-seller on Amazon in just 9 hours from the time it was launched. But, this book title isn’t just fiction; it is based on his actual story.

Tony once led a successful corporate career for over 25 years, but that is less interesting than the side-businesses that he created, which generated millions in profit.

As an active entrepreneur himself, he still owns a few businesses. But, his real passion is teaching entrepreneurs how to start, scale, and sell their business, within his podcast and consulting brand 365 Driven.
