Starting a Successful Hosting Business (With $600K+ Annual Revenue) Before Turning 18 with Cody McLain [TDI070]


All successful entrepreneurs can be inspiring, but what really gets me fired up (with inspiration) are those who can do it at a young age – and keep it going.

Today’s guest, Cody McLain, has an awesome story.  I’m not exaggerating – if there is any interview you read on this site, this better be one of them.

Throughout Cody’s journey (which includes starting a hosting company and building it to more than 3,000 customers before the age of 18), he has learned a lot of really valuable lessons.  I won’t spoil too much, but one of his biggest failures was losing a business that he built up to $600,000 in annual revenue. He shares the full story, the lessons learned, and so much more in this interview.

Seriously. You will want to read this one.

How a Successful Online Proofreading Business was Built with Brian Kaldenberg [TDI060]

brian-kaldenberg-headingI absolutely love when people stumble upon great business ideas, simply because they’re looking to solve their own problem (recall the interview I had with Steve Chou and his wife’s handkerchief business).

Brian Kaldenberg found himself in a similar situation.  His wife needed a proofreader for her thesis (she was completing a master’s degree), and while there were plenty of people who offered proofreading services (they hired someone on oDesk), he realized that there wasn’t one that was ideal.  Recognizing this gap in the proofreading services industry, he created the solution himself – Proofreading Pal.

As you’ll see in the interview, this wasn’t his first internet business (he discusses the first one he created), so he did have some good experience he could leverage when he brought Proofreading Pal to market.  We also discuss some of his greatest challenges with the business, as well as his most effective marketing strategy.

Check out the interview and see for yourself.

Selling Niche Sites Like a Pro with Justin Cooke from EmpireFlippers.com [TDI001]


To kick off our FIRST EVER interview here at The Daily Interview, I am thrilled to bring you this interview with Justin Cook from EmpireFlippers.com.  As someone who has been reading Empire Flippers since its early days (back when it was called Adsense Flippers), I was really excited to have this opportunity to interview Justin.  Justin and his business partner Joe have been running multiple successful businesses in the Philippines for the past several years.

The business that they mostly feature at Empire Flippers is the selling of niche sites.  They have a team that builds the sites, ranks them, and once they’re at a point of earning a decent amount of money, they flip the site for a tidy profit (usually).  They are pretty diversified, however, so this isn’t their only source of income online.

To put their success in perspective – they’ve generated between $25,000-75,000 in each month for 2013.  I love their transparency, as they break down this income each month within their income reports.

Let’s get to the interview!
