Full disclosure: I rarely ever do this, so bear with me. I’m about to start typing about my favorite side hustle. I promise to keep it short but I DO make money from a greeting card app. Not only do I make money, I have fun, plus I make people feel good.
Last Tuesday, during a weekly networking meeting, I took an ussie with Pat, the owner of a local publication, and in less than 60 seconds I uploaded the photo to the cover of a greeting card, typed a witty message, and clicked send. Then, a real paper greeting card was printed, stuffed, stamped and mailed to Pat.
Took me 60 seconds. Someone else did the hard stuff.
Monday I received this in an email from Pat:
“You are so sweet, Kandas. Just got your card. What a fun business you have! I will be signing up with you soon- thanks for the smiles!!!”
Greeting cards aren’t just about making people feel good. There is BIG money to be made. Don’t believe me? Check out this infographic:
If you’d like to cash in on a piece of that $8 billion dollar greeting card pie, head on over to my greeting card app website. Be sure to watch the income opportunity video. If you want to test drive the app, click on the three bars that look like a hamburger in the upper right corner and “send a free card.”
