1. Become a social media consultant ($90K/year)

Amanda Shepherd from Reno, NV, USA started Social Media Manager Society 11 months ago, a social media consultant.

  • Revenue: $7,500/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Reno, NV, USA

I spent the last decade of my career as a social media manager, in the agency, in-house, and freelance settings. I really created a name for myself in my niche and people were always coming to me for social media advice. I absolutely LOVED teaching people and for a long time, wondering how I could combine my passions for teaching and social media into one career.

Fast forward to fall 2019 - I was at a crossroads. The agency I was working for was moving in a different direction and I was literally moving back home. I had a decision to make - stay at the agency under different circumstances, find a new job in my new home, or finally take the plunge and start my own business.

I chose the latter and it was the best decision I ever made! I was immediately able to gain clients using internal systems I created and literally built my own business from the ground up. In one year, I made almost $100,000 and put all my systems inside the Social Media Manager Society, so other aspiring social media managers could take everything I learned and implement it themselves!

2. Start a diy business ($1.62M/year)

Mark Tyrol from Foxborough, Massachusetts, USA started Battic Door over 8 years ago, a DIY business.

  • Revenue: $135,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 2
  • Location: Foxborough, Massachusetts, USA

When I purchased my first house in 2000, I had a pull-down ladder in one of the bedrooms.

When attic stairs are installed, a large hole (approximately 10 square feet) is created in your ceiling. The ceiling and insulation that were there have to be removed, leaving only a thin, unsealed, sheet of plywood.

I have a colleague who told me “Businesses do not fail, people quit.” I decided to not quit.

3. Start a food truck ($18M/year)

Jeffrey Mora from Los Angeles, California, USA started Food Fleet over 9 years ago, a food truck.

  • Revenue: $1,500,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 6
  • Location: Los Angeles, California, USA

We started the food truck business in 2012.

We kept finding it very difficult to find locations to operate. We had a booker that we used to find our locations but fell short and we let her go. I took over our booking and found that most people did not want to book just one truck, not only that they were upset that most of the time the trucks didn’t show up or were late.

We learned the real need was not only helping the trucks but providing a turnkey service for the corporations. This was a game-changer for us, we were really struggling financially.

4. Start a jewelry making business ($48K/year)

Lindsay Ann Gottschall and Courtney Joy Bleier from Miami, Florida, USA started Ann + Joy ago, a jewelry making business.

  • Revenue: $4,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 2
  • Location: Miami, Florida, USA

Courtney Joy always wanted to be a teacher as a little girl. She used to pretend to teach in her childhood home basement on Long Island, New York. Growing up in an artistic family, she became a figurative and landscape artist and eventually attended art school. After college, she decided to merge her two childhood passions together and became an art teacher.

Lindsay Ann expressed herself through art in a different way. She was in the theater and went to school for drama in New York City. While pursuing her dream of acting, she also made beaded jewelry on the side. It quickly became a passion of hers and would help lead her down a new path in life.

Within our first 3 months, we sold over 100 orders, resulting in more than $3,000 in revenue. By the end of our first year, we had sold over 2,300 orders, resulting in more than $65,000.

And for some real world inspiration, give Becca Davison's story on creating UnbuckleMe a read:

I am Becca Davison, and I am the co-inventor of UnbuckleMe, an innovative, patented tool that makes it easy to open kids’ car seat buckles. After college I lived in NYC for 8 years, working in the corporate world in Human Resources for two global investment banks. I moved back to Houston with my husband in 2014 and transitioned to management consulting. We started our family and currently have two daughters, ages 3 and 5 years old.

Our business was born from my need for childcare, as I needed my mom’s help with my daughter when I went back to work after maternity leave. I currently spend most of my time growing our business, UnbuckleMe, and continue to consult a few hours/week for energy clients in Houston.
