Our Founder's Story
The single most valuable thing a student can do is start the right business.
This is a bold claim. Why am I so confident?
Because starting the right business transformed my life. In less than a year, I went from welfare to earning over $100K/year. For the first time, I had financial freedom. I paid off my debts. I had power over my time.
How did I do it? I started a service company called Third Door Marketing that creates social media posts for companies.
It was not risky. My start-up costs were a few hundred dollars. And I did not work long hours. In fact, I only worked part-time.
I know this sounds too good to be true. But it’s real. You can do it too.
Here is the math:
4 hours per week per client
2 hours to create 3 posts for 3 platforms
30 minutes for revisions
30 minutes for tracking and reporting
30 minutes for 1 client meeting
30 minutes for emails and posting
Roster of 3 clients
3 clients X 4 hours/week = 12 hours/week
3 clients X $1,100/month = $3,300/month, or $39,600 per year
This means you can work part-time, but earn a full-time income. And you can reduce your hours by becoming more efficient or hiring contractors.
When I was a student, I wished someone had helped me start Third Door Marketing. It would have saved me years of financial stress. It would have let me work on things I really cared about.
That’s why I’ve decided to offer top students their own Third Door franchise for $1. It’s a turnkey system for making money that includes training and finding clients. And the royalty is only 10%. In comparison, other student franchise companies charge an up-front fee of thousands of dollars and a royalty over 20%.
Let’s open your Third Door together.
