Karen Hunter is no stranger to entrepreneurship. She watched her father work seven days a week — even on holidays — at the corner store he owned in Newark, New Jersey, showing her along how business was handled. Karen was hooked, and wanted to be a part of the business when she got older. But her father said no.


This drove Karen toward entrepreneurship even more. And today, she is building a legacy that includes a Pulitzer she received for her work during her 16 years at the New York Daily News, a top-rated radio show host of The Karen Hunter Show on Sirius XM radio, a NY Times bestselling author, owner of Karen Hunter Books, the source of the petition signed by more than 500,000 individuals, which led to the removal of the confederate flag in Charleston, South Carolina and the #1 app in the government tech space, The Party of Lincoln.


On this episode of the Support is Sexy podcast, Karen talks about mastering your side hustles, asking for permission — never, and pushing yourself to stretch to capacity.




On this episode you’ll learn:

  • Be EXCELLENT at your main job while building your side hustles.
  • Ask for permission — never.
  • How to side hustle to the nth degree.
  • The importance of having multiple streams of income.
  • How to stretch your capacity.
  • Why you must do your homework and learn to leverage your “receipts.”
  • Why you should generate 3 times your salary for your employer. 
  • How to use your platform for good.
