What a journey this has been! Since last week I’ve been getting pretty busy.
The main thing that I had to figure out was “What do I focus on?”
I’ve been doing so much with blog posts, emails, audience building, optins, etc… selling was just a side note to me.
People found me, I made deals, and that was that.
But things changed. I couldn’t let selling be a side note anymore because now I need an income!
I have a family, mortgage, food shopping, everything. I needed to shift my priorities, find what works, and hit the ground running.
That’s what I’ve been doing, and that’s what I share with you today.
In this episode:
- Selling isn’t even selling, it’s something totally different.
- Find Your Voice
- Find the balance between what you need and what you want.
Plus much more! Knowledge bombs on this one so get your notepads! 🙂

In today’s episode I’m chatting with Robby from the Beaver Builder team. They just launched the brand new Beaver Themer and it’s freakin’ AMAZING!!!!
Don’t believe me, feel free to check out my video (link below) along with probably a thousand others that you’ll find with a google search 🙂
We go beyond the themer though. Robby is starting to learn more and more about web marketing.
Here are some of our talking points:
- Beaver Themer – The how, who, what, and the relationship with Views and/or Pods
- Web Marketing – Some straight strategy talk.
- The FUTURE of web design
- You can’t spend $150 on a tool, you’re doing it wrong (unless your a hobbyist)
- And much more

So what’s with all this 30k stuff popping up everywhere on my site?
The short, simple answer, it’s how I started. It was the beginning of my web business and everything that it grew to be. It was the fire that was lit under my arse to push me further and further. It’s a process, and it freakin’ works.
In this episode, I’m going to share my story, I believe for the first time. Not the story of how I got started in the web industry, but the story of how I took a side hustle from nothing, to consistently making $60 – $80k a year ALL WHILE working full time and managing my life work balance with my wife and two kids.
I never shared this because I never looked at it as success. Everything we see about success is so over bloated its crazy.
20k Projects Suck, you can’t start from 0 and 1000 subscribers in a month and most people stay in the middle ground.
For some reason, though, we tend to think that the middle ground isn’t good enough. We’re so pounded with visions of what success looks like, that we become blind to our accomplishments.
When I first started GettingTo30k a lot of feedback that I got was “Why 30k? That just seems too little?”
$30k is real. $30k is attainable, and if you can make $30k, then you’re not that far away from making $60k, $100k, etc.
What started as a side business for me, continued to be a side business but kept growing, and all the methods, strategies, etc., that I learned are all things that I want to share.
Working full time allowed me the freedom to experiment. Having a family gave me a reason to streamline my process to building websites and manage my time efficiently.
My turning point happened just a few days ago. I went to a conference, and a constant theme that I kept hearing was “Be yourself.” I’ve heard it so many times in the past, but it just never registered.
When my accountant does my taxes, he tells me “I can’t believe you’re doing this much with just a side thing.” Of course, I shrugged it off, but I realized, holy crap, he’s right!
So the time has come. I’ve been side hustling since 2012, and now I want to show you how you can start a side hustle too, and take it to places you never imagined.

This post is in response to Johan Gouws.
The question was (paraphrased and summarized): How do you side hustle with kids and a full-time job? How do you schedule meetings, etc?
I answer this question on this episode and I also share a realization that I’ve come to after starting to do this full time.
Entrepreneurs control their schedule, wink wink.
Enjoy the show!
