SPI 152: How a Guest Post Became a Product and The Story of Cole’s Classroom

By Pat Flynn on

When I met this week’s guest, Cole Humphus, two things stood out: the amazing story behind his online business and his generosity.

Cole is an alum of my and Chris Ducker’s 1 Day Business Breakthrough, and I was blown away by the time and effort he offered everyone there in order to give feedback and share advice. He’s here today to share some of that advice with you.

Cole is the owner of Cole’s Classroom, an online resource for photographers. Cole had been offering his photography tips and videos for free when he stumbled upon a brilliant way to monetize his products. Just last week he left his day job to focus full time on his online photography business and the passive income lifestyle, all thanks to a passion project that turned into an incredibly successful online business.
