WHY SHOULD I LISTEN?
In this episode, I am chatting with Shirag Shemmassian about how he leveraged one of his superpowers, getting into grad school and post-grad to eventually help others along the way. Turns out, there is a lot of people that need help doing this. So much so that last year Shirag’s side hustle brought in over $500,000 in revenue. Not too shabby.
Solving someone’s problem is the fastest way of creating a profitable service or product business. Not just a perceived problem, an actual problem. I’ve seen this over and over as I have interviewed people on this podcast; truly discover a problem that people need help solving and your business will grow on its own.
If you can find a BIG pain point as Shirag did then you are on the right path. Think about it – people really want to get into graduate school and medical school and if you have a service that can increase their odds then they’ll come to you with their credit card in hand.
After you have found that market, you’ll just need to have the grit and hustle to keep going, as things will certainly be difficult in the beginning. Shirag talks about how in the first year there was not any profit when you consider the hours he put into the business. But he kept going and put systems in place to help scale the business.
