Second Life | Hillary Kerr
As a bit of a full circle moment, we thought that including Second Life by MyDomaine, a podcast about successful women who made dramatic career changes, only made (like, A LOT) sense. This show will let you in on the lives of entrepreneurs who turned their side hustle into flourishing careers or decided to completely switch industries. We’re talking about women like the Kardashian’s hairstylist Jen Atkin who turned her hair product side hustle Ouai into a seriously profitable business. And she’s just one of the many examples of people who have made it big from their talent on the side and shared the goods on this podcast.
