Who are Shane and Jocelyn Sams?

They run Flipped Lifestyle. They are former teachers turned extremely successful online entrepreneurs that live in Kentucky. They’re also parents to 2 children.

Their story:

Their story which you can read here is amazing and incredibly inspiring. While they were working as school teachers living a “good enough life”, they found out that their son was being mistreated in daycare, and decided it was time to make a change. They wanted to work for themselves and take control of their own lives.

So they tried every business that came to mind from mowing lawns to sewing curtains, but they had zero success.

Then one day, Shane discovered a podcast by Pat Flynn who had also very successfully figured out how to make money online, and he they realised “If he can do it, we can do it too!”

And that was 6 years ago, they then committed to starting a business online and eventually Shane’s website made 11 cents! Yes, you read that correctly… just 11 cents! But that 11 cents was all they needed to prove that they were on to something. And they kept going… making mistakes and having small successes until eventually they launched their first product and made $2,700 in 1 week!

And they kept going from there.

Now they have a membership site called the Flipped Lifestyle community where they work with hundreds of families across the world helping them create successful online businesses and helping those families to “flip their life”.

In case you’re interested, Forbes actually wrote an article about them called “How This Couple Went From Making $76,000 To $1 Million A Year“.

Why I love them:

I love their down-to-earth honest nature, and that they run a family-first business. They have an amazing podcast and a great YouTube channel where we get to eavesdrop on their coaching sessions through live calls with their members.

If you want super practical tips and a whole heap of inspiration… you must listen to them!

And here’s a couple of faves from their YouTube channel:

Just a note – these guys are not big into fancily-produced videos. They literally film in their bedroom or in their car, (which I think is great because they don’t let tech hold them back) but their content is excellent!
