Can you still make money in domain flipping?
Last year, Mark Levine flipped 70 domain names, for around $160k in gross profit.
Of that, he spent a little over half on renewal fees for his domain name portfolio and acquiring new domains to add to it, netting $70-80k for the year.
Not bad for a part-time hobby!
A little bit of a different format this week.
We’re looking at 10 unconventional money rules – at least, in my mind they’re unconventional – to help you save more, earn more, and improve your financial situation.
To help me go back and forth on these points I’m joined by Rich Jones. He’s the host of the award-winning PaychecksandBalances podcast – helping you navigate your finances and career.
Rental arbitrage gives you a way to make money with Airbnb — without owning any property.
Traditionally, building a real estate side hustle takes big bucks for down payments, closing costs, and renovation projects.

Here’s my annual review of my “non-traditional” investments, including peer-to-peer lending, real estate crowdfunding, business lending, and even cryptocurrency.
And of course this is just a snapshot into my experience, not investing advice or a solicitation to invest.

Real estate investing is perhaps one of the oldest side hustles in existence.
Buy a house, rent it out, and build wealth. It’s a tried and true formula, and certainly a way to stop trading time for money.
This idea was popularized by books like Rich Dad Poor Dad, explaining (often with real estate as an example) how you can “escape the rat race” when income from assets you control exceeds your monthly expenses.
But real estate investing comes in many different “flavors” — and some take more time and money than others to get started with.
The passive income dream is real for Dustin Heiner of MasterPassiveIncome.com, he’s currently making $15k a month with around 30 minutes time investment on his part.
Dustin has achieved this by following a systematic approach to buying and letting out properties.
He started with his first property back in 2006. Within 6 years he had 19 properties, and within 9 years he had 26 properties and had retired from his day job at the age of 37.
Is trading stocks a legit way to make money from home? Or is it just another get-rich-quick-scheme?
Admittedly, I’ve always kind of looked at stock trading as a glorified form of gambling. And to be sure, there are risks involved.
In this episode, Teri Ijeoma does a good job of convincing me there really is an art and a science to it — and that it is a winnable game.
