Side Jam Interview #3 – Managing Facebook Ads

Welcome to our next Side Jam Interview!

Before we get started, I just want to share how awesome this whole interview experience has been. For starters, the feedback I’ve been receiving from readers has been so enthusiastic and encouraging.

And also, the amazing individuals who have agreed to be interviewed — you have no idea how much I appreciate your willingness to share your personal stories.

The sheer variety of experiences and creative ideas you’ve been sharing really puts a spotlight on the growth of entrepreneurship in recent years — As well as the many different ways everyday people can highlight their existing skills to create a profitable side business.

And speaking of profitable side businesses —

Today you’ll learn about Robert, who has a few different side gigs going on. He’s a super-friendly and personable guy who I met through social media. And he’s extremely motivated to make his dreams a reality for himself and his growing family.

Plus, he and his family raise goats, ducks, and chickens!

Who wouldn’t love that??

The Interview Questions

Tell us about a fun, unique, or interesting Side Jam you’ve tried:

Haha, one of my side jams is raising chickens for eggs. We pretty much break even on the sale of eggs so it’s not too profitable yet, but there is nothing better than those sweet fresh eggs for breakfast every morning!

While we don’t quite have enough volume yet to sell locally, we are currently selling to family, friends, and coworkers.
