When I asked listeners last month who they’d like to hear on the show, Rob Cubbon is a name that came up from a couple different people.
It was actually a little weird, because it made me realize that even though I considered Rob a good “online friend,” we’d never actually spoken!
Rob’s been crushing it lately between is online teaching efforts and his Kindle publishing business, and as luck would have it, is a Side Hustle Show listener himself.
I’ve been following Rob’s blog for some time myself, and have been really impressed with his journey. In fact, it’s pretty inspiring and eye-opening to see some his quarterly income reports, with much of the money coming from Udemy. (His latest was over $5k!)
And a fun fact is that all of this stuff, all the digital product sales, is essentially a side hustle from his main gig as a freelance graphic designer.
In this episode, he joins me live from Chaing Mai, Thailand, where he’s living the digital nomad dream this fall.
