30: Flipped Lifestyle From School Teachers to Million Dollar Business with Shane and Jocelyn Sams

Shane and Jocelyn Sams-MerryBiz

For today’s guests it all started back in 2012 with one podcast episode, a brainstorm and then an idea was born.

The idea of making a living from online business.

In just a few short months, our guests were able to make thousands of extra dollars each month.

One year later, they surpassed the five figure mark in online sales for a single month.

When their August 2013 sales surpassed $36,000, they decided it was time to stop working for someone else and start living for their family.

In July 2014 alone they made over $140,000. 

They believe that society has it wrong when it comes to work/life balance. Our guests say that life always comes before work. Sounds good, right?
