Episode 5: 76K Instagram followers + a craft cottage on the lake shore: meet Missy! (Part 1)



Ever wonder what it would be like to quit your dayjob (even if you love it) and do something you feel CALLED to do? (Some of you are like, “Ummm...hellloooo, that’s why I’m listening to this podcast Ang….)


Like literally going from the 9-5 corporate job to having your very own lake home with a separate craft cottage for your creative business???? 


You probably know it as making your side hustle your main hustle?

(Although I wish we could remove the word hustle...but that’s a whole different podcast.)  


Ever wonder what it would be like to go from ZERO Instagram Followers to 76,000???


I mean…..WHAT????

Who does that???
