Episode 27: Paige Martindell

Side Hustle Fuel

Compete Every Day Ambassador, Paige Martindell is joining us on the podcast today. I asked her on specifically to share her story of side hustling while working full time.

Paige followed her passion into creative design and took a job at Fossil after college while she started building up her side hustle. She later left Fossil to join StudioHop, a startup in Dallas, and has continued to build her personal brand.

Our discussion focuses on an alternative to the ‘burn all your bridges’ approach to entrepreneurship and how Paige instead hustled her way to develop a business. Paige goes into side hustling, pushing back perfectionism, finding creative inspiration, and so much more.

  • If you’ve been waiting and waiting because of your fears and anxiety, don’t be afraid to put something out there. There’s so much content that if someone doesn’t like it, they’ll move on.
