With Sean McCabe

If you’ve ever desired to start your own business, you may have toyed with the idea of saving up some money, quitting your job, and going all in.

My guest today, though, has a better model he calls overlap. It’s just like it sounds. It’s possible to leverage the margins of life outside your job and grow your business on the side, even if there are things like small children in the mix for you.
