The show takes place every Wednesday on Twitter from 8-9 pm ET.  This is excerpted from my recent interview with Lori Hildebrand @mycoachlori.  Lori is the authority in helping female entrepreneurs turn their side hustle into their full-time gig.

SmallBizLady: How can side-hustlers stay motivated at the corporate job, when they’d rather be working on their passion? Lori Hildebrand: Think of your JOB as your business loan and a place to build relationships. You never know where those relationships will lead later on.
