Science and the experimental process have several parallels to the management of our personal finances. Dr. Maria James, also known as the Money Scientist™, spent more than 10 years in Finance while pursuing her degree in Cellular and Molecular Medicine. Now she is applying some of the skills that she had learned in the science world to teaching business owners about finance.

During her time in college, she maximized her resources and developed side hustles that brought in an extra $10,000. Since moving away from science, she has developed  Pocket of Money and the Pocket of Money podcast to provide financial advice and resources for entrepreneurs and business owners.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How to manage a full-time job and side hustle
  • How to turn a side-hustle into  a successful business
  • How science can be applied to money principles
  • Creating protocols to reach your financial goals
  • Tips for managing your side-hustle
  • Outsourcing and automation for productivity
  • How to plan for business expenses and consider the return on your investment
  • The benefits of networking and the proper way to find valuable connections
  • The difference between passive income and earned income
  • Creating Sales Funnels to bring in customers
