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 18-hour days. 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 5 clients
5 clients X 4 hours/week = 20 hours/week
5 clients X $1,100/month = $5,500/month, or $66,000 per year
Overall, you can work part-time but make a full-time income. And you can reduce your hours by becoming more efficient or hiring contractors.
Work smarter not harder
Most students are working hard at the wrong things. I know because that was me.
In high school, I worked up to 30 hours per week to provide for myself and help my family. In university, I took out loans to pay for my journalism degree. To gain experience, I took a low-paying job as the university’s newspaper editor and unpaid internships at national news organizations. To pay my bills, I worked as a bartender, nanny, and cashier. I barely had energy to attend class.
At the time, I thought I was doing the right thing. But now I know that hard work is not enough. Instead, I should have been working hard on the right business.
Looking back, I wish 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 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%.
