Earn One Million Dollars as a Standalone Business, Even If You’re an Artist: An Interview with Elaine Pofeldt…

Elaine Pofeldt is the author of The Million-Dollar, One Person Business, a Random House book looking at how everyday Americans are breaking $1 million in revenue in businesses with no employees besides the owners. She is a former senior editor at Fortune Small Business magazine and has written about entrepreneurship for publications such as Crain’s New York Business, Fortune, Money, Inc., CNBC and many others. Elaine currently contributes to Forbes. She’s also co-founder of 200kfreelancer.com, a community for indie professionals looking to build a thriving business. I (Phil Svitek) interview her in this episode and explore those principles and have her deconstruct them. Elaine showcases approaches creatives can take to earn a living from their art by using examples she’s witness. I was first introduced to Elaine through Tim Ferriss’ podcast where he highlighted case studies from Elaine’s book. It got me very excited and I just had to read the book. I picked it up and sped through it. It was a very interesting reading that I gained a lot from. I’m excited for you to listen to this interview with her because it’s inspiring to know that as an individual you can earn a very good income on your own terms. Especially for people with creative ambitions, her principles can really help. She is very generous with her answers so I encourage you to take notes. For more information, check out her book and her publications. Be sure to leave a comment with any questions, thoughts, suggestions, etc.
