You've probably heard of Timothy Ferriss before. Aside from being one of Forbes Magazine's "Names You Need to Know in 2011," he's also the author of The 4-Hour Workweek, The 4-Hour Body, and his wildly popular blog, Experiments In Lifestyle Design. Today, Ferriss has posted Volume 4 of his popular "Muse" series.
According to Ferriss, a "muse" is a low-maintenance business that generates significant income. In this installment, entitled Engineering a "Muse" - Volume 4: Case Studies of Successful Cash-Flow Businesses, Ferriss showcases three different muses and highlights exactly what worked, what didn't work, and includes lessons learned on how to earn an extra $1,000 - $25,000 per month.
Some of the case studies that Timothy Ferriss examines are Shopify online stores. A few "muses" were created as a result of Shopify's Build-A-Business Contest, which you can still enter for a chance to win $100,000 and meet Timothy Ferriss in person. If you have a success story (or a "muse"), you're generating more than $1,000 a month and you're comfortable sharing the details, fill out this form.
