Episode 101 | Welcome to Season Two!
Today Dannie and Caitlyn are kicking off Season Two of The Side Hustle Gal Podcast!
The Side Hustle Gal, to us, is someone who works harder than anyone else we know. They're focused not only on their business, but also a myriad of other commitments that tug at their time. They dream of seeing their inspiration become reality and they crave deep conversation. This podcast, this space, is a place for us to be authentic and real. We're ready to chat about the gritty parts of business that make us cry. We're ready to talk about how the hell we handle the day to day when life gets hard. We're ready to challenge the idea that you can't be a successful Side Hustle Gal.
Dive in, dig deep, and enjoy your journey. We're here for you, babe.

Caitlyn is a northern-Michigan country girl turned Arizonan desert rat. About two years ago she moved from northern Michigan to southern Arizona to start her life after college. She joined AmeriCorps VISTA, it’s like domestic PeaceCorps, by taking a job on the spot. She packed up her car and moved across the country in her Chevy tracker.
Anyway, long story short, Caitlyn ended her second VISTA term in August. She wasn’t sure what she wanted to do after two years of public service, that’s where Dannie Fountain stepped in. Dannie introduced Caitlyn into the world of online business management and virtual assisting.
After taking a few clients, Caitlyn learned that she enjoys helping others. She loves being there to help in any way necessary, like those multi-purpose tools you can use for just about everything!
Fun fact about Caitlyn: when she am not supporting entrepreneurs, she is usually chasing cacti and scorpions out in her back yard of the Sonoran Desert.
