Rise of the Entrepreneur – Episode 79 with Joel Young

Joel Young

Joel Young is an actor, professional speaker, pastor and entrepreneur!

For most people, the dream of making money online is simply that… a dream. However, one day when Joel was looking to have some audio work done for one of his church videos, he came across and hired someone to do a simple voice over for $5. The lightbulb went off and Joel thought to himself, “I could do that!” — and so he did!

With a goal of making just an additional $50 per month, Joel wanted to start paying down their debt so his wife and family could live a better lifestyle. They were already both quite active with their church duties, but they had no idea the massive growth and new revenue opportunities that would come as a result of Joel’s new Fiverr venture.

Long story short, things really kicked off for Joel and he went on to make several hundreds of dollars in just his first month on Fiverr, completing videos for just $5 each. Now as a Top Rated Seller on the site, Joel has over 6,000 completed jobs and earns well over $5 per job as there are many upgrade options now available. Even today, Joel’s focus is still to provide the highest quality content possible — no matter if it’s a $5 job or $500.

Joel’s work can now be seen on thousands of sites across the internet, as he has provided countless tutorials, testimonials, training videos and more through his Fiverr jobs. Maybe even best of all… he’s become quite the underground internet celebrity in the process!
