In today's episode Judith Germain speaks to Chris Hanna about the entrepreneurial revolution and how the side hustle has become a micro business. Judith shares her thoughts of how big business is losing the goodwill of their employees, as their employees use their 'goodwill' time on their own micro business.

They discuss the importance of business owners rethinking and evolving their approaches to stay relevant in a changing world. They also talked about the need for small businesses to evolve and embrace change, while solopreneurs have the advantage of being able to adapt quickly.

Chris and Judith discuss the importance of embracing AI technology and the potential risks it brings to businesses. They also highlighted the need for personal connections and third-party references to maintain authenticity and credibility in a world where AI can clone voices and images.

They also highlight the benefits of implementing a four-day work week and eliminating filler time to focus on high-value tasks.

Chris Hanna is the Founder and CEO of Hire4Me Inc a company that helps solopreneurs and entrepreneurs find and make that critical hire. He is a passionate poker player and uses his poker skills in business and as a side hustle. Through his virtual consulting 'All in deep dives', he focuses on helping fellow business owners bet on themselves and identify quick wins and long-term improvement opportunities.

The consequences of not having the right level of influence as a leader can be significant. Without the ability to inspire and motivate others, you may struggle to achieve your goals and make a real impact.

How Influential Are you? Take the scorecard at and see.
