Several years back, a friend of mine, Dave, introduced me to some “friends” of his, Shane and Jocelyn. I came to really like Shane and Jocelyn a lot!
Oh, let me clarify, I never met Shane or Jocelyn in person. Dave recommended for me to listen to their podcast and visit their website. 🙂
If you are interested in earning money online, I would also like to introduce you to Shane and Jocelyn! I think you ought to give them a listen!
In 2012, Shane and Jocelyn started a website called “Flipped Lifestyle”. I started following them not long after they got started. Shane was a High School football coach, and one day back in 2012, he heard a podcast about how “regular” people could earn money online. His wife, Jocelyn, was also a school teacher. They led busy lives, although not earning a lot of money! They started spending their free time figuring out what they could sell online, developing their products and learning how to actually do it. After only a few months, they were making thousands of dollars each month selling online!
After less than a year, they were making a 5 figure income online each month! In August 2013, their income topped $36,000 for the month and they decided that it was time to quit their “real jobs” and focus their time on earning a living online! Did it work out? Well, by July 2014, they made $140,000 in a single month! So, what do you think, did it work?
I used to listen to the Flipped Lifestyle podcast on a very regular basis. Not every week, but I guess more than half of the episodes. However, for the past year or so, I had kind of lost touch with my “friends” Shane and Jocelyn. The other day, though, I was a bit bored, and looking for something to occupy my time and teach me a thing or two. I decided to listen to a podcast, and I though of Shane and Jocelyn, so I went over to their site to listen. I actually listed to 4 or 5 episodes because I was learning some new things and also enjoying it. It was nice to hear their voices again.
One thing that really surprised me was that Shane and Jocelyn had changed the way they were doing business. In the past, they sold products. I remember that Shane was selling things like his football plays that he had developed, practice plans for football teams and such. He was putting the knowledge that he had gained from his experience as a football coach to use for teaching others. Jocelyn, as a former school teacher, was selling things like lesson plans that had worked for her. I am sure they were selling other products as well, but these were some of the things they used to talk about a lot.
Much to my surprise, when I tuned in for their recent podcast episodes, it seems that they had really “flipped” their businesses! They are now doing mostly membership type sites. People can join the sites, pay a monthly subscription fee, and learn from the site, depending on what the topic was of that particular site. I have one membership site currently, but after listening to them the othre day, I feel really motivated to expand my membership site network and do it on several new sites. I even have one site that I plan to turn certain sections of it into membership areas. I think there is great potential here.
I would really encourage you to visit Shane and Jocelyn at their Flipped Lifestyle website. Give some of the podcast episodes a listen too! I am sure you will enjoy them, and if you are like me, you will also learn a thing or two!
