Aaron Draplin and the Art of the Side Hustle: Link

Aaron Draplin and the Art of the Side Hustle is a great video from the guys over at Vans. I was prompted to have a look at this video after listening to the Pen Addict podcast and thought I would share it here.

As a huge Field Notes fan everything Draplin does peaks my interest. It's refreshing to see someone who genuinely loves what they do and is passionate about it. Something to aspire to.
