SPI 122: From Teachers to Totally Rocking It Online—Shane and Jocelyn Sams Share Their Success Story

SPI 122: From Teachers to Totally Rocking It Online—Shane and Jocelyn Sams Share Their Success Story

By Pat Flynn on

Some of the most popular and relatable episodes of The SPI Podcast involve success stories from those who have successfully built a business outside of the Internet Marketing, Online Business and Blogging niches.

In other words, there are more ways to build a successful online business and make money online than just talking about how to build an online business and make money online. In fact, I bet there are more people crushing it online outside of that space—they just don’t have a platform, or really the need to talk about their success.

Today I’d like to share an incredible success story packed with valuable strategies and actionable tips from not just one, but two people—a husband and wife combo who each have their own respective successful online businesses in completely different niches.

Shane and Jocelyn Sams were teachers (Shane a teacher and football coach and Jocelyn a librarian) before they discovered the Smart Passive Income Podcast and gave online business a shot.

Just last month, they earned over six-figures from various digital product launches.

In this podcast, you’ll hear how it all started, what went right (and wrong) along the way, and all of the tips and strategies they’re using now to build and grow their business.

I had the pleasure of meeting Shane and Jocelyn at the most recent 1-Day Business Breakthrough event here in San Diego (an event my buddy Chris Ducker and I put together every time he’s in town—our next one is in September and it’s already sold out!), and they are two of the nicest, sweetest people I’ve ever met—and completely passionate about what they do and for helping others, as you’ll hear.

Here is a picture of us at the 1-Day Business Breakthrough event:
