I’m keeping these show notes short, because my on-air intro of this guest is long-winded, quirky, and – to the Hershheads out there – funny & charming. I recorded it as a tribute to Tony Whatley, executive performance coach, best-selling author, and leading light of the 365 Driven society. Tony shares his mindset and business strategies within his book, Side Hustle Millionaire. He also teaches entrepreneurs how to start, scale, and exit their business within his Top-1% globally ranked podcast and consulting brand 365 Driven.

Tony tells me, “What makes you think you’re gonna be able to make everyone like you? It’s literally impossible, so go out there and do that thing.”

Here we are, Tony and me, doing our thing.
