Have you ever thought about building a business, but don’t know where to begin because you don’t have the time between your full-time job and your other personal obligations, like spending time with your family?
Today, we revisit a past episode that features a former client and now great friend of HTYC, Olivia Gamber. Olivia shares her story of how she took her side business and grew it into a full-time business career.
Also in the podcast, Olivia and Scott discuss some of the biggest takeaways they have encountered when they decided to grow each of their businesses. The discussion gets into everything from how to make the time to focus on building your side business, to becoming a business owner, and to how to validate your business as a real way to replace the income you bring in from your current job.

BUILDING A BUSINESS: ABOUT OLIVIA GAMBER
Olivia is a return guest to the HTYC podcast. When she first came on the show, she had climbed the corporate ladder quickly and was the Manager of Talent and Organizational Development at Taylor Morrison. There she specialized in everything from strategy development and project management to process improvement and data analytics, she was also in charge of her company’s talent acquisition process from end-to-end! AND…at the time, she had used all of the knowledge and experience she’s gained in her journey to help other young professionals develop and advance their careers with OccupationalOlivia.com, a site all about “Next Level Career Success”!
Fast-forward to today and you’ll find that Olivia has grown what was once a side business to her full-time career. She took Occupational Olivia and partnered up to launch CareerAttraction, a space where high achievers are shown how to take their careers to the next level. At CareerAttraction, they have learned what it takes for you to stand out in this competitive market and get the respect, pay, and fulfillment you deserve.
