The Truth About Entrepreneurship with Matt Giovanisci

0 11


Matt Giovanisci is a serial entrepreneur. He decided early on that “working for the man” was not in his cards, and set out to never have to do that again, creating side hustles that generated income so he could be his own boss and do everything on his schedule and his terms.

But entrepreneurship isn’t always the pie-in-the-sky fairy tale that it is sometimes made out to be. On today’s episode, we talk to Matt about the successes and failures he’s had as an entrepreneur – from the pool/spa care web site he took to $100k in revenue per year in just five short years to the podcast he quit after one episode.

This episode takes off the rose-colored glasses for a realistic view of how entrepreneurship actually looks.

One of the easiest ways you can protect your properties—is investing in a great security system. By far, my personal recommendation, is SimpliSafe.

SimpliSafe is awesome. It’s really reliable, with really fast response times, which is huge. It’s really easy to move between properties. And there are no contracts either.

I really like it, and I’m not alone—it’s CNET’s Editors choice, and the Wirecutter calls it “The Best Home Security.”
