FIRST BUSINESS VENTURES
Tom Libelt ran a record store with two older friends.
Became a DJ and played at colleges, bars, radio stations, clubs, and raves got an internship at Unique Recording Studios in NY.
In NY created a group, rapped and engineered the music.
Had 3 hits in the top 10 on the local polish radio… one was #1 for almost a year.
Read the 4 Hour Workweek and couldn’t get the idea of being location independent out of my head.
Moved to Atlanta and bought a coffee shop in the suburbs. Ran that for almost a year but…
Tom Libelt was browsing the web and heard about Adsense Niche sites. Created a couple… made a few dollars and started pumping out around 50 every month.
“Six months later I made my first $1,000 and after that had months where I hit close to $10,000…”
“One of the blog networks that I used for SEO became too popular and Google shut it down. That left me with 1,500+ blog posts and a team of writers with nothing to do.
I told them to start writing books and left them alone. That became profitable and we went on to writing 5,000+ books and making $250,000+”
Tom’s businesses were running well and he became bored. Got a great team together and we made a documentary about the realities of building/running businesses when on the road.
