SPI 318: Modern Mindfulness with Melissa Monte—An SPI Student and Her Successful Start

I’ve had a lot of requests for episodes like this, so we’re doing something a little different today. We’re talking to Melissa Monte, a student of my Power-Up Podcasting Fast Track Workshop. Her podcast, Mind Love, launched soon after, and she’s here to share how she created her vibrant and successful podcast from scratch. I wanted to bring Melissa on today to talk about what she’s learned, what she has planned for the future, and how she’s progressing. It gets pretty personal too. Melissa talks about some of the darker years of her life, and how she was able to overcome them and create a whole new perspective. We go into why she decided to launch a podcast, and why podcasting specifically is helping her fulfill her life’s mission. Now that Melissa has a growing audience, I also offer some help and advice for next steps so that she can […]

SPI 311: How to Build an Audience with Your Hobby

Have you ever considered starting a podcast? Do you wonder what it’s like to get going? Are you thinking of trying to build an audience out of your hobby? Today’s guest—Phil Lichtenberger of Scanner School—can give you some insight into that experience. You might also be scratching your heads as to what the scanner radio hobby is, and Phil will explain all of that in today’s episode. He’s just started building his business, and while it’s not super-successful yet, he’s well on his way. Scanner radio is certainly a niche hobby, but Phil’s managing to build a growing audience out of it. He’s been consistent every week with his podcast, and he’s up to Episode 10 already (at the time of this recording). He’s having a lot of fun, but he has a lot of questions to ask too. To put it bluntly: Phil’s in the thick of it. I […]

My July 2017 Monthly Income Report

Welcome to my July 2017 Monthly Income Report. Thanks for checking it out! Each month, I write a detailed report about my online businesses, including what I’ve been up to, the lessons I’ve learned, and, of course, the money I’ve earned online. I’ve been publishing these reports since October 2008, so make sure you check out the income reports page if you’d like to go back in time and check out the complete history. If this is your first time at Smart Passive Income (SPI), thanks for being here. SPI was built to serve others by experimenting with my own trials and errors.
