The Moonlighters’ Club: Entrepreneurs Living As Employees

Sometimes having a job just isn’t enough. Welcome to the Moonlighters' Club where we interview aspiring entrepreneurs who work full-time jobs. Our host, Joel Edwards, would spend his down time at work building a mobile app. He then realized he wasn't the only employee there with dreams that went beyond a 9-to-5. Join him as he discusses living on a steady diet of ambition and no sleep, with a new guest every month.

"Thankfully in April, I went part-time. It happened kind of all of sudden and it was a moment of sink or swim. You're getting less cash in the bank, you really have to make this happen."

"That's when everything took off. When I had more time to focus."

Everyone meet Alison Rogers.

Alison Rogers is the founder of Coffee Cup Collective, a circular economy for reusable coffee cups. She joined the Moonlighters' Club to talk about her journey from Consultant to founder and why it's important for her to use innovation to help the environment

About The company Coffee Cup Collective offers a guilt-free to-go coffee without the inconvenience of a personal reusable cup.
