About this Episode
“How do you balance relationships with your side hustle?”
This week, we sit down with Landis Wiedner, co-founder of Nindis Social Media, on a rooftop in beautiful downtown Chicago, to discuss relationships and entrepreneurship and how find a balance between the two.
Why is this a great topic for Landis? Well, because in a former life she went by the name Chloe Cline, a relationship and dating blogger who would document the trials and tribulations of dating in the modern world. As she says on her site, "There are no bad dates, only good material."
