1. Start a podcasting business ($204K/year)

Tom Hunt from London started Fame over 1 year ago, a podcasting business.

  • Revenue: $17,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 3
  • Location: London

This whole thing started when I was working as head of marketing at a B2B SaaS business. We started a podcast.

The podcast was focused on the sales operations resource, and was called Sales Ops Demystified. We interviewed sales ops people.

It started to go pretty well, we got social shares, SEO value and even had some sales calls with our guests (we sold sales software). Sales Ops Demystified is now the most downloaded podcast in the world of sales ops.

2. Start a podcast production company ($240K/year)

Jeremy Enns from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada started Counterweight Creative about 5 years ago, a podcast production company.

  • Revenue: $20,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

I went to school for audio engineering, initially wanting to produce records for bands and artists. After graduating in 2012, I interned at a big studio in my hometown of Vancouver, and while I learned a lot, I quickly realized that I didn’t have the drive (or financial ability) to show up at the studio at 8am and work (for free) until 4am six or seven days a week for a year or more before moving up into a position that might pay $10/hr and actually start getting paid to work on music.

I went home that night, started a profile on UpWork, got my first client three days later, and within six months had quit my landscaping job and was working for myself full time as a podcast producer.

After interning just a couple of days per week for over a year, while also working full-time at a retail job, I quit the internship and put my dreams of working in the music industry behind me. I worked a number of manual labour jobs including landscape construction and maintenance, tree planting in northern Canada, and others before taking a year off to travel, bicycling across Europe, and backpacking through the Balkans, and Asia.
