Status of school friends, listeners and community, this is critical about, what's up I'll, be having a wonderful weak up. You have had a good week, your listing in real time. We have just finished weak number. Forty four of season, two now again for those in real time. This is voting season here in the U S, election is coming up in just a couple of days. So, if you listening to this later, while the election already took place, but it is the mid term alike, an important election and I would encourage you to go out and vote. If you are, people unable to vote. Please do so. I'm a resident of all and an organ we just have mail in voting, so basically he has done by mail, which is so much more convenient than going in waiting a line at the pause. I think for people her interests you can actually take your mail in ballot and then go and drop it off on the day of the poles. But of course that is a bit complicated. You could also just milk in so already completed my civic duty about a week ago, which was nice just gonna, get it done, and elsewhere
world iron flying to Hong Kong, the day after tomorrow and then to Australia. So too favorite places in the world, Hong Kong and Australia I'll be based there for the next. I don't know what ten days or so and of course the episodes will continue. I look forward to bring you more story. Location, I've been getting a lot of listener, email listener comments on Instagram and other social networks linked, and I often hear from people there just want to say. I really appreciate you guys so much whether reach out or not. I appreciate you The things that I think is really fun is to hear from listeners who are starting. Projects have been hearing from people all over the place. Doing all kinds of projects when I get a shot out you Natalie in New York to medicine in category two. German somewhere near to just a few of the knights I received this week about people who are are moving forward. Their projects so feel free to touch me at any point, let me know how you doing what our team now, you're doing and by the way we have a membership community caught sight of society and plenty to do a relaunch and changing things about the programme. So all the feedback from Not your members has been very helpful with that, and I will be speaking to you about that at some point soon. I know a lot of people out there
I really want to community where I can connect with other people and get specific advice We did version one about earlier this year and to bring your version too pretty soon not by the end of the year than very soon thereafter. Now, of course, we haven't talked about twenty nineteen yet so I don't get ahead of things right now, we're very focused on finishing out this year made a commitment to produce an episode every day this year, just like we did last year. We are seeing that commitment through today, as episode. Six hundred and seventy three so we focused on, but at some point I will give an update on what we're thinking about for next year definition fun things in the works today. I've got enough. From someone we featured on a show a while back he's made some huge progress in tremendous progress, but first I want to quickly reed or just summarize, minimise. I got from a western and hazel and Hazel Rights and says Hey Chris. I was just listening to your pact. Has this more The UK I've always been interested in starting my own side. I saw, but I just can't seemed to land on an idea that I think people are pay for. I am a dietician, background, and I hope that this is a service people pay for. But I've noticed that some the nutrition businesses you featured are much more niece or tightly focused the market
message I want to convey is that you can reach a healthy way with normal foods. Calorie aware, is helpful and you don't need to restrict food groups and he's lost or something about products versus services. She's I don't wanna have a product. I want to do a service. Is that better? And just in brief I Rebecca Hazel to say I understand what you mean about the tightly focus the next thing, the key to generate the paleo that that whatever it is, I'm not really that interested in that stop myself personally and theirs, room for good evidence based advice about nutrition, then we're all in trouble. Basically. So, in other words, I think it's possible and I also think it important to find a hook or an angle in this market just because it is a crowded market. It is a sad treated market with lots of people offering all sorts of diet and nutrition well. Is it vice? So you don't have to follow a fat or a trend, but I do think you need some kind of cooker angle. I'm an astronaut part about product or service. I don't necessarily think either one is more sustainable. It just depends on a specific product or service. To really depends on yours. Duration. We talk out through in different ways with allow the stories that we feature throughout the week. Support for those podcast com

He made this commitment opposed according to a sketch.
I never mr weak, or that was episode. Sixty four here yarn episode, six, seventy three and, as you heard not update, he still has not missed a week. So consistency matters now think there's a lot of power in a streak and that's something I try to live out myself like here with the daily episodes haven't MR day since we started- and you know I'm terrified of missing a day and there's a weird sorted peace that comes with knowing that's part of my routine and no matter what else happens? This is definite gonna happen. This episode has to go out toward the end First year we had a weird issue with Itunes now known as apple pie. Cast itunes, I wasn't displaying the than you ever so it's four for some people for a couple of days, like episodes were still there, but you had to go and hunt for them. And I got all emails from people there were like Chris where's. The episode are you ok and fortunately I was fine. We have been making it happen and we were able to figure that out. It's not just powerful in terms of other people that consistency is good for business. As I just mentioned, but I think it's also good
yourself, like whatever the pattern. A habit is that you said just being able to follow through on. It will be good for you, even without the extra no results. So anyway. Congratulations again, is everyone you can check out the long hairs, including their new pie, cast, had bands, Sarah etc at the long hairs dotcom more these two common.

You can also you're going to make a voice Nemo an email that to pack cast aside a school tat com usually when I require these episodes. I give you my notes from the weekend thing Ok, what was a highlight was my favorite episode. Don't hear more feedback about certain episodes compared to others this week. I really struggled to be honest because I like several of them for different reasons, and we had this whole story about a sports fan american football fans who creates a six figure sports out,
you could say we kicked out the weak with that. Then we also had a story about a Minnesota New opens a private campground in her back yard. I thought was just a super creative idea: she's not making six figures from she's, making a huge amount of money from it, but it also requires very little work so, as I think, seven episode. If you have a creative idea, what's your next up, what are you doing about? It then special shot out to our cause just content manager Whitney correct. She prepared our special Halloween episode, maniac pumpkin, carving this spooky site us won't scare, you away. Pretty amazing story there and then also financial blog that sprouts into a thirty five thousand dollars a month. Money tree as well as it parity Wrapper publishing educational, music, just kind of went on, and I finally just it just came up and said: okay, I'm not going to pick a favorite from this week. So I'm pretty sure I learn some. Self, and each one, or at least almost each one, maybe they like. As a reminder, a lot of these stories are coming from you. What are these stories are coming from our community? So if you have started aside hustle since listening to the show- or
