1. Start a journal business ($1.8M/year)

Ollie Aplin from London, UK started MindJournal over 5 years ago, a journal business.

  • Revenue: $150,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 3
  • Location: London, UK

I’ve personally kept a journal for 10 years now, ever since I first went into therapy to recover from PTSD. My mum took her own life 2 years prior to my breakdown, and I never really got to grips with my emotions or how to process everything that had ever happened.

When I started therapy I was still stuck in the mindset that talking about how I felt was not something I should do. So talking therapy was the most unnatural experience for me. So to help, my therapist recommended I tried journaling – as a way of privately thinking about how I felt and what was on my mind. It was a game-changer of a moment for me.

2. Start a blogging business ($60K/year)

Chhavi Agarwal from New Delhi, Delhi, India started Mrs Daaku Studio over 3 years ago, a blogging business.

  • Revenue: $5,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 3
  • Location: New Delhi, Delhi, India

I am a licensed attorney in India and right after my master’s in law, I started working with a leading company as a lawyer. I worked there for about two years before I quit my job to become more location independent.

Choose a niche in whatever you start. It is critical for streamlining your efforts and make money.

My job paid me well but I worked 12 hours a day, I was exhausted by the end of each day, spent my weekends sleeping and I almost quit the things I liked to do - for example, sketching, yoga, traveling, etc.

3. Start a consulting business ($180K/year)

Akhil Suresh Nair from Boston, MA, USA started Xena Intelligence about 1 year ago, a consulting business.

  • Revenue: $15,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 3
  • Location: Boston, MA, USA

I had a couple of years of experience working for a large corporation back in India. I genuinely felt that I was just a cog in the wheel and that whatever I did had little to no impact in the real world.

We were at a crossroads at that time – filled with constant self-doubt about the career path we wanted to take. We could have easily applied for corporate jobs in the US or in India, but we chose to follow our hearts by continuing to work in our consulting business.

I reached out to a few small businesses I had developed good relationships during my corporate career and started helping them out on developing marketing strategy to scale their businesses and also to instill robust operational efficiencies in their business processes. I realized that I was able to add considerable value to their businesses and that I felt a sense of satisfaction in being able to make their lives better. I soon started consulting for over 20 small businesses in India.

4. Start a travel agency ($24K/year)

Marissa Daniels from Remote started Spread Your Wings Travel over 2 years ago, a travel agency.

  • Revenue: $2,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Remote

I was blessed to grow up in a two-parent household with a loving and caring set of parents. My father was in the military and because of that, I was born in California in ‘94. I’m a Georgia Peach all the way, but I was born in California. Unfortunately, in September of 2018, my life shifted when my father passed from cancer. It was pretty quick. In July, he was diagnosed and in September, he took his last breath. I was a Daddy’s girl to the FULLEST, so you can imagine the pain I went through - and still going through.

Do research before starting. If you want to start a business - research before you pay anything.

Fortunately, he was there to see me graduate from Valdosta State University in 2016. I majored in Mass Media with a Speech Communication Minor. Growing up, I loved to be in front of the camera (my father was a photographer) and I would record the video announcements at my church, as young as 11 years old. I also recorded the announcements in elementary school. I just knew Broadcast Journalism was something I was interested in.

5. Start a motorcycle parts business ($7.2M/year)

Justin Pflanz from Lincoln, Nebraska, USA started TAB Performance almost 18 years ago, a motorcycle parts business.

  • Revenue: $600,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 9
  • Location: Lincoln, Nebraska, USA

My Brother and I grew up in a very entrepreneurial family. Our parents had started, grown and sold several companies growing up and it’s something we both had a passion for.

We’ve also always felt that our personalities and experiences complimented each other well. Generally speaking, I tend to be more detail oriented and risk averse whereas my brother is better at looking at the big picture and is more comfortable taking risks. I went to college and got a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in business and he got his degrees in both Business Administration and Marketing.

And for some real world inspiration, give Richard Worsham's story on creating Janus Motorcycles a read:

My name is Richard Worsham and I am a co-founder and lead designer at Janus Motorcycles, a motorcycle manufacturer building handmade, classically styled, lightweight motorcycles in northern Indiana. Janus is the ancient Roman god with two faces who simultaneously looks to both the past and the future. As the god of doorways and journeys, we thought this timelessness perfectly represented our classic motorcycles and manufacturing ethos. Janus Motorcycles focuses on building a line of simple motorcycles using traditional design, materials, and craftsmanship. We have produced our flagship model, the Halcyon, in various configurations for almost 9 years and just launched our latest iteration, the Halcyon 450 Motorcycle, this spring.

Because our motorcycles are so simple to ride and service, we can rely on an in-house service team, an extensive YouTube library of information and repair videos, and third-party repair shops around the country to provide service and maintenance for our growing owner base. Over the past 5 years, we have steadily increased sales by around 40% each year.
