1. Start a social media marketing service ($600K/year)

David Schlais from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA started Vital Traffic Labs about 5 years ago, a social media marketing service.

  • Revenue: $50,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

My personal background is in B2B enterprise sales, and at my previous employer, things were going great for the first 2.5 years that I was an employee there. I moved up quickly, was promoted twice, and actually had the opportunity to build out a team. Unfortunately, one day that all changed and I realized that I was deeply unhappy, and after years of trying and failing to start businesses online I thought that maybe it was time for one more go.

Your pot of gold and freedom is out there somewhere, but you will never find it until you start looking for it.

The company I was working for announced that it was being acquired, so I decided to give my old friend Derek a call. Initially, I pitched him on starting a recruitment agency together (both of us had started our careers at an executive search office together). He said that he would think about it, and actually came to me with the idea for an SMMA (Social Media Marketing Agency).
