#50: Travis Marziani: $1,000,000 a Year from ONE Passion Product!

Entrepreneurs Can Party

“Scheduling my nervous time” – Travis Marziani Travis Marziani (@travismarziani) is a YouTuber and the founder of Performance Nut Butter: an Amazon FBA ‘Passion Product’ which now makes him over $1,000,000 every year! In 2016, depressed and stuck in the corporate world, Travis quit his job to start an online dance clothing business with his mum. After years of growing the business but struggling to turn a profit, he moved back in with his parents and decided to make a product he was actually passionate about.  Hence Performance Nut Butter was born. As well as running this successful company, Travis now teaches people how to make passive income through his YouTube channel and Passion Product Formula Course.

Now Travis is someone I’ve followed for YEARS so I’m not exaggerating when I say it was one of my dreams to bring him onto the podcast! I wasn’t quite sure in which direction the conversation would flow and it certainly took some interesting turns. We both opened up about our struggles with mental health and seeing therapists, and I hope there’s lots of gold in this for you as listeners. If you guys like this, we’d love to do a part 2 in the not too distant future where we’ll be able to dive more into the business of how Travis operates!

S01: Using the Internet as a Business Partner with Travis Marziani

Right After Breakfast

Travis Marziani works on one of three different businesses. A dance clothing business called BDancewear, his newest business called Performance Nut Butter, and a teacher of e-commerce(internet marketing, creating businesses, and entrepreneurship). Travis is a great example of the new age internet entrepreneur. Although he does a lot of work from his home, he still manages to found, grow, and run multiple businesses across different industries and platforms. Not to mention he is also a podcast host! Wow, suddenly I feel like I’m underachieving here. Twenty years ago Travis’ career path wouldn't have even made sense. He’s only one person, so how is he even able to run so many businesses at once? One business is hard enough to start and succeed at. Well that’s where the internet has come into play in so many peoples career lives. Travis is able to go through the steps of starting a business, and maintain that business without dedicating all of his time to it. This has made it possible to gain income from an initial business he created, and then simultaneously start up another business that he is way more passionate about. This gives him room to grow as an entrepreneur and an individual. In no way is this an easy road though. It’s obvious that Travis is not only constantly busy tending to his businesses, but he has had to put his own money on the line to make things happen. It’s certainly a life of risk and reward, but it’s the life he wants to take a risk on.  Find Travis Online: Website - https://www.effectiveecommerce.com/ Instagram - @travismarziani Twitter - @TravisMarz Some Questions I Ask: What was the first success moment you had in entrepreneurship?
