PTM 005: Making Extra Money By Turning Your Hobby into a Small Business with Jeff Block of JustPaperRoses.com

Part Time Money PodcastIn this episode of the Part-Time Money Podcast I speak with veteran entrepreneur, Jeff Block, of JustPaperRoses.com. Jeff took his passion for a hobby, origami, and turned it into a small business that he now runs with two employees. JustPaperRoses.com provides custom made flowers for anniversary gifts and all floral occasions. Jeff is also the author of Steel Wool on a Stick: My Hobby on Steroids.

I really enjoyed the interview with Jeff. He gets into how and why he started his business. He gives some insight into starting an online store and driving traffic to it. He also delves into some entrepreneurial advice that only an experienced small business owner could give. Very good stuff.
