Our guest today went from $50,000 in debt and blogging about it …to, in just six short years, earning $20 million in revenue with said blog that has become a full-fledged media company.
And many of you, I’m willing to bet, are familiar with the website since it has over five million subscribers: ThePennyHoarder.com.
Our guest today is the founder and CEO Kyle Taylor.
Back in 2010 Kyle was saddled with massive student loan and credit card debt. He began blogging about his adventures of becoming debt free, making and saving money which led to the launch of the website. And under his leadership, the blog has grown from something that was mainly personal to one of the largest publications on the web with millions of readers a month.
More about Kyle… He was recently named on Business Observer’s 40 Under 40 list. And fun fact: In his past life he spent about 6 years working in politics, on a campaign trail in charge of crafting media strategy, raising money and directing field workers. Makes sense why he’s now able to be a CEO, right?
One of my favorite quotes from the interview: “It’s not about denying yourself what you want in life, it’s finding a way to afford them on a healthy budget.” – Click To Tweet
