The Smart Passive Income Podcast Logo

In this session of the Smart Passive Income Podcast, I’m happy to showcase 3 success stories from people who are making a living online and generating a passive income without having to teach others how to make money online.

Many people think that the only way to really make money online is to talk about making money online, and this session (and the next, which will feature 3 more success stories) is here to show you that you don’t need to do that. In fact, I wouldn’t recommend it because the make money online industry is very competitive and the techniques that are a little out of date in this industry are still crushing it in others.

This Session’s Success Stories Feature:

Keith Snow of – The cooking and food niche is extremely competitive, but Keith shares with us exactly how he found a niche within a niche (Local and Seasonal Foods) and is utilizing the power of giving away information for free to drive people into a membership site and increase product sales. What I love about Keith’s story is his attitude towards his customers and also how he’s utilizing the power of the internet to grow his business even further.

Raffael Schulz of Raffael has an interesting story for a number of different reasons. He has one of the top wedding websites in Germany (I know a lot of you are from outside the U.S. so this story will definitely be one to listen to), he quit his job in order to work on it and he knew nothing about weddings before. Raffael shares how he got into this business and exactly what kinds of monetization strategies (there’s a bunch!) he’s using and which ones perform the best.

Daniel Himel of and—Daniel Himel quit his well paying corporate job to build a business around something he was very passionate about—endurance training for the Ironman race. He then applied what he learned to marathon training and he crushed it even more. We’re talking 7 figures a year here and some fantastic business strategies that you can apply to your own online businesses and membership sites too.

Thanks to all of the guests on the show today and look out for 3 more success stories in session #25.
