We're on a never-ending quest to spread joy, inspire, educate, & learn. Join us every Tuesday on our YouTube Channel & SURVIVE UNEMPLOYMENT like a boss!

The 9to5 MisFits - YouTube duo tackling Unemployment with Hilarious Grace.

In June 2016, when BizLatte was but a distant dream, cofounders Pavi and Nammy, who were both unemployed at the time, started a YouTube channel, The 9to5 MisFits. Unemployment can be scary and confusing, but for Pavi and Nammy, it was comforting to have a "buddy" to go through it with, because no amount of productivity blogs or TED Talks can inspire action the same way a friend can. So they decided to give everyone else in a similar situation a virtual “friend” in the form of their YouTube channel.

Through weekly 5-minute Hack videos, they share their very own hilarious anecdotes as well as helpful tips and resources to deal with the emotional, financial, and practical realities of being unemployed. Ultimately, they hope to create a supportive community of like-minded individuals wanting to crush unemployment and remove the stigma associated with it. Today, The 9to5 MisFits is still going strong as a brand!
