Welcome to the Other Side – your free ticket to a wildly successful online micro-business.
My name’s Matt. I’ve been a producer and project manager in the tech space for 6+ years.
I’ve worked for major corporations like NBCU and Riot Games, as well as small businesses and scrappy startups where I took on roles like Director of Operations and Head of Web.
My corporate journey eventually lead me into entrepreneurship.
I had such a diverse skillset that I didn’t feel was being used to its full potential (my creative side gets very antsy) so I ventured out in my spare time to build something for myself.
It was time to take a leap of faith.
I guess you could say I went the typical starter route, getting into things like
- day trading
- Amazon FBA
- rental arbitrage
- and eventually SMMA
before my 7th (and finally very successful) try turning my marketing agency into a digital growth business – all while working a 9-5.
There were many many failures.
There were just as many breakthroughs.
This newsletter is where I’ll share the whirlwind of experiences, lessons, tips & tricks, and tools & resources that I’ve gathered along the way.
It’s my way of paying it forward in hopes that my wins and losses help someone get to the other side of their journey.
It’s my hope that I inspire at least one person to realize just how possible it is to pursue something much bigger, more meaningful, and more fulfilling than what you’re clocking into for the majority of your day…
…week after week…
…contributing to someone else’s dream.
It’s my hope that it inspires at least one person to remember their dreams and be daring enough to put them first.
Each issue is meant to be an extremely concise and high-value concept or tip that you can immediately apply to a business you’re either thinking of starting, or already have.
I want to connect you to the tips, tricks, and tools that some pay $1000s for.
The ones that bigger players in the game use religiously that you just might not be aware of.
I want to even the playing field.
There are no real secrets or hacks. The business plans are already in front of you, they’re talked about every day by all the successful people you look up to.
I’ve spent over $20,000 in courses and mentorships over the last 2 years only to realize that success is most achievable through consistency and the right information.
The internet is a huge place and I believe that in today’s entrepreneurial landscape, we’re in a state of information overload.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing.
It means that everything you need is already accessible.
The trick is being able to get to the highest value information as quickly as possible, cutting out the fluff and identifying the stuff that really moves the needle for business.
The real value is in information aggregation, the cream of the crop in one place.
So if you’re:
- an aspiring business owner
- a freelancer already taking the dive into client work
- an established entrepreneur looking to get to the next level
- or just plain interested in finding out just how accessible creating online income is
Then you’re in the right place. I’m putting everything I know, everything that works, all the “shortcuts”…all in one place.
Glad to have you here, let’s get to it.
