There’s a myth about making a living online that says you can’t make money online unless you’re selling how to make money online.
Here’s the third in my series of Foolish Adventure Show listeners who make a living from the Internet and don’t do it in the “How To Make Money” world.
Inside this episode, you’ll meet Denver Riddle (yes, that’s his real name) of Color Grading Central, who started listening to the Show in the very beginning. After listening for a few months, Denver had the confidence to start his own Internet-based business.
But here’s the key and I want to really stress this because I don’t think it got highlighted enough in the episode: Denver started a business in something he was already experienced in and had a strong interest in. This is foundational to the Foolish Philosophy of building a business online.
We’re not trying to find some untapped niche that we don’t know anything about and hopefully make money from like most “guurs” teach about niche businesses. Here at Foolish HQ, we want you to start where you already have skills and a desire. This may not (and probably won’t) be the business you have five years from now, but it will help you build the necessary skills to succeed.
Denver’s story is inspiring because his success came from focusing on something he was already doing. He didn’t have to go through a giant learning curve to learn new skills and then also learn the needs of his market. He had the skills and he was a part of the market he was going to sell to.
There are a ton more lessons packed into this episode — it really is a framework for designing and growing a digital products business rapidly. So listen in to here how Denver did it.
PS. This episode was edited by my 12 year old daughter, Taegen Bryn. She made a lot of the editing decisions on her own with only a few times asking me if she was making the right choice. If you think the episode sounds good, then please let Taegen know in the comments.
