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. ...

Today I’m really happy to have Toni Anderson back on the podcast. Now this is isn’t the first time I’ve had her on the show. Way back in episode39, we talked about how Toni manages to run a 6 figure blog, a conference, consult on the side and home school 7 kids.

Rank #4: 079: How To Take Your Talent And Turn It Into A 6 Figure Business With Grant Baldwin

Podcast cover
Read more

Grant Baldwin is someone who I’ve known for a while but we didn’t actually meet face to face until recently at NMX. In fact, I was featured on his podcast “How’d You Get Into That” several months ago where he interviews unique business owners.
Not only does he run a popular podcast but he’s also a professional motivational speaker for students. And the man is very prolific. I think last year he spoke at 60 events throughout the year travelling all across the country.
So here’s what’s cool about Grant. Giving incredible speeches all across the country is lucrative but it is not scalable because you have to physically be there.
And after having kids, Grant realized that he wanted to scale back the travelling to spend more time with family.
So he sat down and figured out a way to turn his talents and passion into a more scalable ...
