This post is in response to Johan Gouws.
The question was (paraphrased and summarized): How do you side hustle with kids and a full-time job? How do you schedule meetings, etc?
I answer this question on this episode and I also share a realization that I’ve come to after starting to do this full time.
Entrepreneurs control their schedule, wink wink.
Enjoy the show!

In this episode, I speak with Carrie Dils. Carrie is such a sweet heart and speaking with her was such a pleasure. She’s a developer primarily in the Genesis Framework and is currently working at Crowd Favorite. When she’s not knee deep in code, she’s doing an awesome live video podcast called OfficeHours! Used to be called Genesis Office hours, but times have changed and it’s amazing how Carrie has grown in her career.
In this episode, there’s a ton to take away. This was recorded last year when Carrie was in the middle of a transition with her career. She drops some knowledge bombs about freelancers, finding the right audience, and so much more.
I like the fact that this interview is a year old because you can here a lot of what she was doing compared to what she’s doing now, which is a pretty incredible transition. Applying the right steps, talking to the right people, and networking in general really pays off.

I’ve been doing a lot these past few weeks and I’m realizing more and more that, I know a lot of stuff. 😀
Seriously though. When it comes to online strategies, I, and I’m sure a lot of you as well, tend to take for granted the things that we’ve learned in our experiences.
Things that we deem as incredibly simple or assume that everyone knows, ends up being not true.
What’s simple to you and all the things that you know, many people don’t. You can help a LOT of people of you just share advice here and there and get them to understand your world just a little bit.
In this episode, I talk about strategies. Basic online strategies that are essential for the growth of a website.
What you’ll learn in this episode:
- The strategies I’m implementing in SureFire
- Strategies being implemented on this site (JonPerez.me)
- And much more insight!
