I decided to leave investment banking because I'd lost the meaning and purpose of my work, and I wanted to find it. Becoming a managing director wasn't a specific goal when I started in investment banking. I realized money is just part of the puzzle. The biggest expense isn't the business investment but the opportunity cost and covering my living expenses while extending my financial runway. I don’t have fixed commitments, like a mortgage or children, which gave me the flexibility to leave my banking career.

I was then promoted to activities manager, and in 2020, I became Royal Caribbean's second-youngest cruise director on Spectrum of the Seas. People may think of a cruise ship as a mode of transportation to a different country, but really, it's another destination. We regularly throw big parties onboard, but one of the most memorable parties was when the Spectrum of the Seas was christened in 2019 by the actress Angelababy in Shanghai. My favorite port is BarcelonaThe cruise port is at the bottom of Las Ramblas, a large boulevard that runs through the city. Do you work on a cruise ship and want to share your story?

Courtesy of Mark RadcliffeI bought a used piano for the living room, started hosting music-themed cocktail parties and dinners regularly, and built a new community.

Her job looked like something I could do on the weekends when my husband, who I'm separated from, looks after the baby. I was up-front that I didn't, and, to be honest, I still really don't. The training process was just shadowing the best cart girl and having her show me everything that she does.

I also just hired someone to start repurposing all my YouTube videos and turn them into 60-second vertical videos for TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook.

On average, an A.Team mission is a 12-month engagement. I usually take on one full-time mission that requires 35 to 40 hours per week and a couple smaller missions that require five to 10 hours per week. So I took a hybrid approach and freelanced for a few years on top of my full-time job at Landyachtz. That's my biggest piece of advice to anyone trying to make their side hustle their full-time job: Create a safety net, then take the leap. This is eroding trust employees once had in the full-time work model.
