Episode 245: Is it Possible to Support Your Family From an Indie Business? Yes. Just Listen to This.

Is it actually possible to support your family over the long-haul with an independent online small business?

Like, is it actually possible?

Or are we all just kind of hoping that our blog or podcast or freelancing business will last?

Well this episode right here is your answer. In it we learn exactly how possible it truly is… AND we get to hear from a real buddha of online biz; a mentor to many of us because he’s been doing it for so much longer than most of us.

Creating your own business is not about making it easy; there is still going to be work that needs to be done. That said, it is POSSIBLE to create a life that is less stressful, more prosperous, and purposefully designed to support your dreams and your family all at once.

Steve Maxwell is the founder of Bailey Line Road Chronicles, and he’s been supporting himself and his family through his writing and web work for almost 25 years now.

Steve and his family live on an island in Canada. An island! He’s like a less creepy, more wood-worky Richard Branson

Steve shares his journey with us, and how he has transitioned over the years, from typewriter, to fax, to building an email list that is truly your own.

We also dive into the conversation of what it means to understand what the market wants and learning how to build your own dream in the big, open ocean instead of splashing around in someone else’s fishbowl, unfulfilled and unsatisfied.

(Note: this fishbowl thing will literally stay with you forever once you hear it.)

It IS possible to sustain yourself and your family over the long-haul with your indie business. Learn exactly what that’s like in this episode. Enjoy!
