I’m Matt. I’m a 33 year old former dj from Minnesota who has made a living on the internet for over 6 years now and I consider myself the luckiest person on Earth. I have an amazing 9 year old son, great & friends, and a line of work that allows me to spend most of my time with them.
I’ve held many jobs – a dishwasher, pizza delivery guy, debt collector, server at (multiple) restaurants to director of training for a wedding entertainment service. But always having someone to “report to” made me sorta cringe. My parents would tell you I’ve had the “entrepreneurial spirit” since a very young age.
When I was 13 I started my first business. My own lawn mowing service. I would go from house to house offering my services to people in the neighborhood. I’d pull my Dad’s lawn mower behind my bike with a rope that I found in the garage and ride from one customer to the next customer for that day, but always made sure to be home before it got dark or I would get grounded lol.
Eventually, I had more customers than I could handle so I would hired 2 of my friends, and would pay them 50% of my earnings from each customer. Running this little “business” came so naturally for me, and is why I think I am so determined to work for myself instead of others.
After I graduated high school, I started Dj’ing around town. I was doing clubs & other events, having a lot of fun at the same time. I went to college, and graduated with a that degree I never used & I still continued to Dj, and started my own event service. I had a pretty successful service for abo0ut 10 years but I always was working on the weekends, and late nights. Not to mention speakers & lighting is heavy to haul from gig to gig and I wasn’t getting any younger. The prestige of being a successful club & event DJ wasn’t as important or fulfilling as it once was. So after my online business was sustainable and I made more than I was Djing, I hung up my headphones…
Fast forward to the present time. Currently I own a small business consulting service – selling online services, to offline businesses. I earn between $8,000-$10,000+ (generally) per month, here’s a couple payments I receive EVERY month from offline clients:
This is a screenshot of my online payments I received this month:
This year I am determined not only to build my offline business, but also setup additional income streams that are passive and require minimal effort to maintain each month. Like adsense sites, Amazon review blogs, list building & product creation. And I’m going to document my journey through it all in 2014
