Anyone who has decided to turn their hobby or passion into a career eventually comes to the the realization that what they love doing isn't just about having fun anymore. That means you have to learn how to excel at it and monetize it, or as Dustin Nickerson would say, ""Everyone likes to drive the car, but somebody has to work on it, right?" Dustin is an author, podcaster, and professional comedian who performs in over 300 shows a year. He's appeared on Comedy Central, Hulu, Fox, and Netflix alongside Kevin Hart. Dustin joins me for a hilarious conversation about honing your craft, doing the parts of the job that no one likes, the struggles of social media algorithms, and so much more! For more from Dustin, check out his debut book How to Be Married (to Melissa): A Hilarious Guide to a Happier, One-of-a-Kind Marriage.
