Always curious, I asked some probing questions about what exactly he does, and he shared that he wrote a "program" which I later found to be a members only log-in to a series of 8 videos and 8 lengthy articles on what to text the girl you like.
At first I was a little skeptical, but he was very enthusiastic about his business and told me all about it. He has relationships with a few joint partners that have high traffic blogs in the dating advice space, and they sell his product for him through their blog. His retail price is $97, and splits the proceeds 50/50 with his "JV partners."
He went on to say "just made a sale" about 3 times during the conversation, which netted him $150 during the 30 minutes at my desk. He went as far as showing me the deposits into his mobile banking account.
I asked him if he could show me some of his content, and he graciously gave me a log-in to his program. He did a great job capturing the interest of his audience, and offered what seemed to be sound advice to his paying clients. All in all, I was very impressed.
I share this with you simply to suggest there is no "one way" to build wealth. This gentlemen found a niche, incentivized authority leaders in his target market, and built a very successful and unique business.
