Here comes another one!!! My Throwback Series today is with Dan Norris! If you don’t know who he is, today should be the day.
Dan Norris was the co-founder of WP-Curve which was just acquired by GoDaddy, he’s written 4 books (Create or Hate, 7 Day Startup, Content Machine, Operation Brewery), started his own Brewery Company, and has an Entrepreneur Mastermind!
The guy is pretty unstoppable. Not to mention, he’s totally down to earch and cool as hell.
This interview was super fun! We spoke last year when we was working on his first book 7 Day Startup. It’s incredible how much has happened since then.
Take a blast from the past though and see Dan Norris… BEFORE THEY WERE STARS!!!! 😀 Enjoy!

We’re entrepreneurs. We have ambition. When we see something we like or have a great idea, we start to figure out the execution. Our minds are ALWAYS moving. This can get very tiring.
I want to tell you that sometimes, you just need to slow things down a bit. Read MorePost Views: 45

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.

Does he even need an introduction?
I’m going to do one anyway. This episode is all about growth with Lee Jackson!
I met Lee about a year ago when he first launched his podcast. We did a great interview and you can check that out here!
Lee is no stranger to growing businesses. He started with a small event agency which he helped grow substantially in a few years.
He later moved on to his own agency Lee Jackson Dev, which is on a continual pace to grow!
From a freelancer to a full-blown agency, Lee isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
We chatted about growth strategy, a few do’s and don’ts, and had an overall great conversation.
Lee runs a white label development studio for design agencies and is a truly genuine person and I was honored to have him on my podcast.
NOTE: This episode had a few technical difficulties, but we made it through.
Enjoy the show!
I called Lee the Angled King because his new branding will be called Angled Crown. 🙂Post Views: 66
