    What I Would Do If I Was Starting from Scratch

    What I Would Do If I Was Starting from Scratch

    A while back, I asked the Passive Income for Designers Facebook group “what is your biggest passive income question?” — and the winner by far was the following question.
    “If you were starting from scratch today with no list and no friends, how/where would you start?”
    I thought for quite a while about what I would do. And the answer surprised me a bit.
    Note: Please forgive my raspy voice in the recording.

    Episode 16 | How Jason Carne Made Over 100K from His Love of Vintage Lettering

    Episode 16 | How Jason Carne Made Over 100K from His Love of Vintage Lettering

    Jason Carne was about to give up his design career to do construction. A string of bad freelance work and the monthly struggle to get by had sucked all the fun out of design.

    That was when Jason, on a whim, made a small tweak to his business Lettering Library (a subscription for rare vintage lettering books). 

    The result was $15,000 over the course of three days. But that was just the beginning. Over the next few years, Jason would make over $100,000 from his side hustles.

    Learn how he did it without traditional marketing but instead focusing on his friends and the work he loved.

Friendly and mega helpful!

Dustin does a great job to make you feel like you can really give passive income a shot; he's encouraging and he asks his interviewees all the right questions to get the best out of them for listeners. He also draws from years of experience to deliver a brilliantly helpful podcast. Thanks, Dustin!

An amazing amount of value

Dustin generously shares his experience and knowledge and is always very humble about his success. It’s obviously he is very grateful being able to do what he loves and highly values his customers. This is the sort of approach I value and seek out from people that influence me. I was lucky enough to be in the beta run for his Passive Income for Designer course. I can’t say enough about how much I got from it. He was encouraging, delivered his honest opinion (even if it wasn’t what you always want to hear) and always had a positive point of view. If you want to take your passive income goals seriously, I strongly recommend this podcast!
