Ep. 114 – Matt Barrie: How To Get Paid Doing What You Love

get paid

What are you best at? Whatever it is, you should do it more often and get paid for it, too. Unless if it’s sex. That’s illegal.

Do you know the ultimate site to choose yourself (besides jamesaltucher.com)? It’s freelancer.com. It’s “a global market for services” and “the eBay for jobs.” My guest today, Matt Barrie, is the genius who founded it.

This site changed my life. And in today’s interview, you’ll hear how I used the site to build a business and sell it for millions of dollars eight months later.

I’ve interviewed hundreds of successful people.

Matt, on the other hand, watches people become overnight successes in real time. He is an encyclopedia of success stories. You will feel motivated and empowered after hearing these extreme entrepreneur success stories.

Have you heard of giantflamingo.com? This guy outsourced manufacturing on freelancer.com and created an entire pool toy empire. Now, he’s a multimillionaire. You’ll hear his full story and realize you have the same potential.

If starting a business isn’t for, that’s ok. You can still make money from the site. “Everyone on the site is there to make money,” Matt says.

Here’s what you have to do: use the site to look up projects. Projects can supplement your income or even replace it. This way you’ll get paid to do what you’re good at all the time.

Let me know what you find. I love to hear stories about how you choose yourself.
