In this week’s Failure Friday segment, we hear from Nate Martin, the founder of America’s original escape room. His business, Puzzle Break, now has locations worldwide—but an early expansion to San Francisco turned out to be a puzzle he couldn’t crack. Side Hustle School features a new episode EVERY DAY, featuring detailed case studies of people who earn extra money without quitting their job. This year, the show includes free guided lessons and listener Q&A several days each week. 🎧Show notes: SideHustleSchool.comEmail: team@sidehustleschool.comBe on the show: on Twitter: @chrisguillebeauConnect on Instagram: @193countriesVisit Chris's main site: ChrisGuillebeau.comIf you're enjoying the show, please pass it along!
