Today I'm sharing a conversation with one of the nation's’ leading expert on student loans, Adam Minsky. Not only do we chat about student loans, we cover exactly how Adam turned his side hustle into his full time gig and what it took for him to become a thriving solo practitioner. 

What you’ll learn:

  • Why Adam chose law
  • How he started working with student loans
  • How his side hustle turned into a full time gig
  • How his business evolved into a thriving solo practice
  • Different ways to build pricing structures to suit your practice
  • Adam's workload as a solo practitioner
  • How Adam kept himself going through the tough times
  • Tips to stay on track with your goals
  • Reasons why you should pursue your passions now

Best Advice for Finding Happiness:

“It’s a sense of autonomy, being able to enjoy other aspects of life and do the work that you want to do that you find important or meaningful”
