Welcome to today’s issue of the Opossum’s Substack. There’s a lot of new people on my email list so I wanted to catch everybody up. Today’s email is going to be a little different. This email will be pinned to the top of the Substack permanently. It will be a living document that outlines your learning journey to your first second income.
work in b2b sales (biz travel, prev ad tech sales & fintech) and cold email for meetings daily. Not sure if cold email agency still viable or other type of lead gen would be better?
Just wanted to drop in and say that the entire Substack has been a tremendous help for setting up my first official business. It's probably gonna fail but this Substack increased my odds of success ten-fold. Will try to provide an update way down the line on how its going. Might be awhile though because like the jungle says "Success ain't linear".
I have a YouTube coding channel with 1k views/day.
Any recommendations on how to leverage it to make affiliate/other money?
Just subscribed as a paid sub, and haven't read all your articles yet.
Breaking shit for a couple days
Havent had this much fun in a while
Very informative, do you have to use WordPress, or can you just use sub stack to get started for blog writing?
Great information. Would you recommend paying for content writers or just learning to write and taking the time to do it yourself?
By the way, would like to take you up on the offer for the premium GeneratePress. Let me know, thanks!
Y'all, I have NO clue what to do! I'm unemployed. I've worked in the NYC high-profiled restaurant life and luxury beauty retail sales. I'd love to have a newsletter since I'm a newsletter fiend; I've lived in Brazil a few times, Portugal, Aruba, Buenos Aires - living abroad is my drug - but I can't figure out how to translate that into a newsletter since I'm broke and can't afford to travel anywhere atm. I am also intrigued by the boutique hotel industry but I don't know what would bring value to boutique hotels so I can get PAID. I need money yesterday. Thoughts anyone??
Thank you Opossum. Secured 6 fig USTT job, now time to start second income.
Idea for future stack: Would love to hear about successful e-commerce stores and how they got going. Hearing semi detailed success stories would help people to think through their own venture, start creative idea brainstorming, and how provide real life examples to start and grow.
Hi Opossum, Great thread！ Any thoughts on using the Kadence theme for wordpress compare to GeneratePress? Which is more user friendly for non-coders to build a website?
f you’re serious about starting your first income stream, get the free version of GeneratePress. Once your site is stood up, reach out to me and I’ll give you a copy of the premium version for free.
NGMI question, I saw your blogspot and saw this on the theme section on your blogspot, could. How can I have this Bowtied Opossum bro?
What would you recommend finding your niche? I currently speak a few languages fluently and have some tips but it seems saturated. Does that matter?
I'm at the “I just don’t have an idea.” stage Opossum. I reached here because Bull wants us to a secondary source of income and I thought I'd do something online. I am an ICU doc. Thats my niche. I could start a website on that. But there are hundreds already. I could start a book summary site. I love reading. But there are hundreds already. I could start a blog of my random thoughts/observations about all the things I'm interested in..etc. But who would care to read my plain vanilla observations.
What do I do? Am I overthinking this, Opossum?
Great intro. I can't wait to start selling some fucking lamps!

What email service do you recommend for collecting, managing, and sending to your email list?
