I'm self-employed, but there's nothing magical about it. I wake up when I want, put my sweatpants on one leg at a time, and enjoy a long breakfast just like everyone else.
When you're in business for yourself, the goal is to make money. Otherwise you're not in business.
I won't teach you how to build a business or what app will increase your Facebook pokes. I'm going to make money and share my process. That's it.
I plan to work hard, fuck up, and maybe succeed along the way. Join me and see behind-the-scenes of every challenge.
The idea for these rules came from Chuck Jones' "Road Runner Rules."
My name is Matt Giovanisci. I started a website in 2006 called Swim University. The site makes over $100,000 a year but it took 10 years.
I co-founded a personal finance brand called Listen Money Matters in 2013. I left after a year, but it's still awesome and I'm proud of it.
In March 2015, I started a coffee education website called Roasty. It's like Swim University, but about brewing coffee instead of pool maintenance. It's growing and I believe it will be successful in 10 years.
I started another podcast called Driven in June 2015, but I gave up on it.
Now I created Money Lab so I can build more brands, make more money, and write off my cheese habit.
I design and code. Write the words. Film and edit the videos. Produce the podcasts. Illustrate the graphics. But now I have a team that helps me.
You don't need an opt-in bribe, right? I'm asking you to enter your address, confirm it, and enjoy an email update once in a while. No spam. Is that cool?
