Case Study

Hello! My name is Michelle Schroeder-Gardner, and I run Making Sense of Cents, a personal finance and lifestyle website that helps readers earn more, save more, and live more.

I earn around $100,000 a month from Making Sense of Cents and have made over $5,000,000 from it over the years. Much of it is profit, as my expenses are extremely low. I am the only full-time employee of my business, but I do outsource some work. I have a virtual assistant, an editor, and a technical manager.

2. Send me South ($18K/year)

Marcia Solis (from Dulce Nombre de Jesús, San José Province, Vásquez de Coronado, Costa Rica) started Send me South almost 11 years ago.

$1.5K / month
Team
1 founders / 0 employees

Case Study

Hello! My name is Marcia Solis and I run Send me South, a company that helps people relocate to Costa Rica, Central America, since 2012.

Since this is a business that is mostly referred to by word of mouth, clients do not show every month. However, there is always a family coming to stay, wanting to give their children the Latin experience of learning Spanish directly in our schools, or retired people looking for the tropics to spend their golden years in our beaches and mountains.
