Rank #1: 122: How To Make 600K Selling T-Shirts On TeeSpring With Derek Pankaew

Podcast cover
Read more

Today I’m happy to have Derek Pankaew on the show. Derek is someone who I met at the Ecommerce Fuel Live conference and it was pretty random how we started talking.
I was sitting directly behind him during a session and I couldn’t help but peek at his screen. And I found that the screen saver on his computer was a running count of his age. I took notice and we started chatting.
And as luck would have it, Derek was selling t-shirts at the time and making a killing doing it. Now if you’ve followed my blog for a while, an example that I use of what not to sell is t-shirts because it’s way too saturated.
But Derek has made over 600K with a gross profit of 335K selling t-shirts online in a pretty short period of time and in this interview he shares how he did it. ...

Podcast cover
Read more

Today I’m thrilled to have Misty Henry on the show. Misty is someone who I randomly ran across as I was doing research on how to sell children’s goods.
And up until this point, I’ve been absolutely terrified of selling goods for kids because of all of the testing requirements.
You have to worry about lead, fire safety guidelines, chemicals in plastic etc… There’s actually a long list of guidelines that are very intimidating…
As it turns out, Misty is an expert in this area and she runs a small cloth diaper supply shop called Little Gnome Creations. She’s also a board member at the Real Diaper Industry Association where she serves as their lead safety compliance expert.
Finally, she owns the Work At Home Mom Alliance where compliant artisans of any industry can join.
Enjoy the interview!

Rank #3: 070: Crazy Simple Business Ideas That Actually Make A Lot Of Money With Lars Hundley

Podcast cover
Read more

When it comes to starting a business, there’s a general misconception that you need to create something grand and invest lots of money in order to be successful. In fact, many would-be entrepreneurs never get started because they think that they need to create the next Facebook, the next Google or the next Amazon.com.
But in reality, it’s very easy to make money online if you start small and simply go for a base hit. In today’s podcast, Lars and I talk about some of the many ways that we’ve made money in the past that do not require any infrastructure or technical know how.
Warning: Some of Lars’ past businesses have been wacky, crazy and off the wall. And in honor of this podcast episode, I’m giving away a free monkey phone call to 3 lucky readers/listeners at MonkeyPhoneCall.com!
