Most dream jobs probably entail doing about as little work as one can get away with, maybe even doing nothing more than getting dressed in the morning. Maybe yours simply entails surfing the web and going about your business on your own schedule and on your own terms. Jason Sadler had such a dream.
“I was laying bed at 3am racking my brain for a way to make some extra money without actually “working” and it came to me… I wear shirts every day of my life, no matter what, and should let people choose what shirts I wear,” says the 28-year-old Entrepreneur.
Not only did his dream came true, but he made over $80 thousand last year doing it! All he has to do is just put on a different a t-shirt every day, with his sponsor’s logos on them, and then use various forms of social media, including Twitter and vlogs, to advertise himself and Voilà; money in the bank. Talk about telecommuting! His dream has gotten so big, that he now employs another man, Evan White, his West coast partner to wear a different t-shirt each day as well.
Although he’s expanding, there may not be enough of a market for all of us to copy Mr. Adler’s idea, but t-shirts aren’t just a way to advertise a company. They could also advertise you! One company designed a line of t-shirts that advertise your personal cover letter or resume. They suggest that you have several hard copies of your resume on hand when you wear your shirt in public. If you’re the crafty type, you can design your own shirt at Custom Ink.
To all of those web entrepreneurs out there, Jason said to T-shirt Magazine Online that, “the first and most important thing is that nothing is an overnight success.”
