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.
