Episode 9: Quitting the rat race for self employment, with Rich Jepson

Rich Jepson is a full time digital performance manager at On the Beach. He’s also a published author. And a full time dad. In this episode, we talk about what it’s like managing your side hustle alongside a 9-5, and making the decision to quit “the day job” to pursue dreams.

Rich also talks about his 18 month old son, Casey, who was 4 weeks premature and how he dealt with the uncertainty. This is a great episode looking at work, work, family, emotions and… hand puppets?
