482: From 6-Figure Blog to 7-Figure Online Business: Catching Up with Robert Farrington

Feb 03, 2022, 10:00 AM

From a $10,000 a month “blog” to a 7-figure “Media Company” — a lot can happen in six years.

Today’s guest is one of my most important real and virtual online business mentors — I’m always trying to pay attention and keep an eye on what Robert Farrington from TheCollegeInvestor.com is up to.

Fun fact: Robert was one of the very first guests on The Side Hustle Show back in 2013.

Our last update was 6 years ago, in early 2016. Back then, The College Investor was earning $10k a month and Robert was still working full-time at Target.

There have been lots of life changes since then, plus some exponential growth on the business side.

Today, The College Investor is one of the biggest personal finance media brands in the world.

With over 1 million visits a month, covering student loans, taxes and tax software, investing, insurance, budgeting — if it’s related to money, you’ll find it at The College Investor.

Tune in to The Side Hustle Show interview to hear:

  • what the biggest changes Robert has seen in his online business are since 2016
  • what marketing channels are driving traffic for him today
  • why he’s started a new brand and the future of his business
