2015 was the first year that my business – owned 50/50 with my business partner ‘Diggy’ – generated more than $1 million in revenue. $1.4M to be specific.

I’ve been utilizing this tactic since 2012 and despite how many people were telling me it was saturated back then (don’t people say that about everything?) it still works very well today in 2017.
