Episode 36 – How Earning $4.36 Can Change Your Life w/ Nathan Collier

Nathan-CollierMany of us, who live in the United States of these Americas, make more than $4.36 at our current day job, yet for Nathan Collier making $5 (actually $4.36 once you take out the transactions fees) was the most rewarding money he has ever earned. Nathan Collier, from Dayton, OH, is a husband, a father and hard working guy. He is a marketing professional by day at a software company and a freelance copywriter at night. He has a background in writing and journalism. He actually loves his job and started his side hustler just to earn an extra $350 to pay his student loan bill. Once he got started with his part-time business, he found out it was worth so much more for him then making money to pay off debt.
