Pete Codes from Edinburgh, UK started No CS Degree about 3 years ago, a educational blog.

  • Revenue: $1,100/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Edinburgh, UK

Case Study

I had been learning to code for some time and I was looking for inspiration from people who like me hadn’t learned programming at college. I’m a member of quite a few online communities and I had already been asking developers for a while about how they got into software engineering. I knew quite a few people hadn’t been to college and had still done really well in their careers.

For instance, an Austrian developer Richard was making six figures as a self-taught web developer aged 22 years old and I was really impressed by that. Also, Harry Dry made a dating website for Kanye West fans which went viral and he was basically learning how to make it as he went along. One of my biggest influences, Pieter Levels, is also a very successful entrepreneur and makes $600,000 as a self-taught web developer. These stories helped encourage me to keep learning to code so I thought other people would be interested as well.

I knew of course that interview websites like Indiehackers and Starter Story were a good way to start a business so I had some examples to follow already. I figured that over the next 10 years there are going to be so many people learning to code for the first time that I could get ahead of that and making a website for them. I was definitely inspired by the way Pieter Levels took advantage of the trend of remote work with his websites Nomad List and Remote OK aimed at people having a location-independent lifestyle.

Case Study

As an overweight child with debilitating anxiety, I had spent years trying to diet for weight loss while juggling bouts of panic and depression. Even after I had hacked the weight and improved my nutrition, I still just couldn’t get to the bottom of my mental health struggles. After my second miscarriage, I finally discovered the root of what I had assumed were hormonal issues were actually originating from an imbalance in my gut.

Get an early morning routine. This will give you precious hours to which YOU control your day and execute your dreams.

Once I learned about the mind-gut connection I was hooked! My evolving passion for wellness grew into an intense need to share my epiphany with the world. At that point, I became a board-certified health and life coach and started writing my first book Buddha Belly out of the driver's seat of my car during my baby’s naps. I had just sold my previous brick and mortar business to buy myself a year of working, to stay home with my second child. I was becoming antsy, needing to find a place for my passion to ignite again and once I started writing, the book flew together and was completed within six months.

  • Revenue: $13,000/ month
  • Founders: 1

  • Location: Connecticut, USA

Case Study

I grew up in a single-parent household, by nature I had to learn entrepreneurship. My mom was low-income and disabled, so I had to focus on being a provider from the age of 10. I was flipping CDs, DVDs, trading cards, and anything else I could get my hands on all throughout middle & high school.

Believe In Yourself – Be your biggest fan and pat yourself on the back because no one else will!

In 10th grade, I was assigned to an entrepreneurship class where there were only two people in the class including myself. I had thoughts of dropping out of the class, however, I decided to stay. This was the best decision I ever made in my life because this is where I made my 24-page business plan that would become the company that I have today. During the first three years of the company, I focused on providing branding and marketing services to local businesses and coaches. What I learned from these years, helped me create the perfect signature product that I now provide to fitness professionals to help them sell high ticket services.

  • Location: Los Angeles, California, USA

Case Study

My personal story begins with my parents immigrating to Los Angeles to start a better life. Although ethnically Chinese, they were both born and raised in Japan as a result of my grandparents from both sides fleeing communist China. I was born in an extremely diverse neighborhood (we had around 7 different ethnicities on our block) near Pasadena, CA, before moving to Japan for 5 years between the age of 10-15.

I grew up playing sports and competing at a national level in Kendo, cross country, and track. I started Kendo at the age of 5 and competed at the national level in the United States and Japan. In high school, I was co-captain of our cross country and track team where we competed in the Division I state and national championships. It was through running that I truly learned perseverance and grit.

Unfortunately, at 19 years old, I became a paraplegic when I fell from 35 feet in the air in a snowboarding accident and shattered my back. Doctors told me that I would never walk again, but it furthered my drive and passion for adventure and trying new things. I finished college with degrees in Chemistry and Economics and continued to compete in marathons even got to train with the US Paralympic team.

  • Revenue: $20,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 10
  • Location: Crestmore, California, USA

Case Study

For as long as I can remember I have always been attracted to the idea of being a business owner. I’ve tried many businesses starting with my own DJ company. I got some business cards, printed them at Staples, passed them out, and waited for the calls.

It took a bit of time, but eventually, the calls started to come in and bookings started to happen. I did that for a couple of years until one of the DJ gigs some gangsters got into it and I was almost in the middle of a gang fight. Thank GOD things calmed down, but after that, I started looking for another business!

During this same time, the whole tech bubble was growing and I wanted a part of it. I took some coding classes in college and started using HTML to code my website from scratch. I kind of borrowed a lot of ideas from Yahoo but it was going to be mainly focused on my local city. I visited some businesses and got some of them to advertise. Things seemed to be going well when the bubble burst and I was once more left to venture out and look for something else.

6. Start a nutrition supplements business ($960K/year)

How Much Can You Make?
$1,000 — $500,000/month
Skills

Ricky Hall from St. Louis, MO started NutritionHQ. over 7 years ago, a nutrition supplements business.

  • Revenue: $80,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: St. Louis, MO

Case Study

I have been very passionate about nutrition and supplements since the early ’90s while serving in the Air Force. I remember seeing a picture of myself and how overweight I had unconsciously become. After seeing that picture I purchased a book about nutrition and supplements within six months I had lost over 50 pounds. I was hooked on helping people lose weight, gaining muscle, and live healthier lives. I started training and writing diet plans for friends and family members and realized this was my true passion.

After leaving the Air Force in 1995, I moved to New Jersey and worked at a gym selling memberships and personal training. In 1998 I moved back to Missouri to be closer to my son and start my first nutrition store. I scraped together everything I had saved working a construction job and begged my Mom and Dad to cosign a loan to open my first franchise store in February of 2000.

In 2009 I felt like I couldn’t take care of my customer and I was forced to sell products that I did not believe in. I sold my four stores in 2010 in hope of finding a franchise concept that cared about the customer as much as I did. I worked as a consultant for a few months with a new franchise concept. In 2011 I bought into the new franchise concept to finally change the way people thought about Nutrition stores. Quickly I learned the franchise was not the answer and I was growing more and more frustrated every day. I wanted to provide the best products for my customers and my hands were tied.

I went from making $150 a month to $45,000+ a month within one and a half years, and still scaling to be a seven-figure business.

My name is John Zarbock. I am the CEO and Founder of BioFit. I started my business in November of 2018 in St. Louis, Missouri. We build better humans by providing them with the most effective, efficient, and safe exercise on the planet. We do this through the High-Intensity Training (HIT) methodology mostly by leveraging the Adaptive Resistance Exercise (ARX) machines. They are designed to achieve exercise results in as little as 20 minutes a week by performing not only each rep and set near perfectly but also allowing for the maximum amount of intensity every moment of every session in the safest way possible while giving each client real-time feedback on progress and performance. We deploy a simple success formula: Work + Rest = Growth.

We currently have approximately 125 clients and our average monthly revenue is $20k. We have about an 80% closing ratio and our client retention is over 70%. The intricacies of the business have been very dynamic as I have served more than half of my time operating it while on Active Duty for the Army. I am currently deployed overseas in Kuwait so there have been challenges in growth and scale but we have grown year over year in both memberships and revenue despite having a skeleton crew of dedicated team members and partners in the last two years.

Hey everyone! I am Chris and in March 2011 I started Live Fit. Live Fit is a personal training company that was created to change the standards in the personal training industry. Early on I focused on building a company that is not only based on results, as most fitness companies are, but that is also focused very heavily on relationships. Relationships create trust, trust creates buy-in, and buy-in leads to the accountability and dedication it takes to get results.

It didn’t take long until I was full-time in my role, and I had a wait list. Since I had previously build professional connections in the community, I had plenty of referrals from therapists, doctors, treatment centers, and other providers in the eating disorder community.

By my first year as a full-time dietitian, I was making $56k/year when my previous full-time job paid $36k/yr (gross). My goal was to make at least $40/yr, and I was thrilled!

Hi! I’m Jennifer. When I opened Cool Contours in 2018, I was expecting our first child and just had our 2nd as I’m preparing to open our second location. Being a mom and running a small business is challenging, but doable! Having a family and trying to find a balance between home and workforces me to be more intentional with my time and finding support, whether that means leaning on the family to help with our 2 children, finding the right team at Cool Contours, or delegating marketing and SEO to the right firms.

On average, we’re able to charge about 60% more for CoolSculpting than other practices that offer a wide range of services since our patients see the value in our focus and service. Even though CoolSculpting does have some seasonality throughout the year, our average monthly revenue is $100k and we have completed almost 5,000 treatments.
