E197: Do You Have A Print On Demand Hobby or Business? + Amazon Merch on Demand Custom T-shirts

Welcome back to the PODCast!

When starting your print on demand venture, it's natural to share it with others. Well, if you've told people about your POD business, this episode might be a bit of a wake up call. While it's totally fine to see print on demand as a hobby that can bring in a few bucks, there's a different way to go about building a business.

On this week's episode, Travis and Josiah shed light on the differences between a hobby and business. They start off with the necessity of dedicated work hours and goal setting. These form the foundation of a real business as opposed to a side hobby you work on "when you have time." From strategic product listings to social media content creation, the guys really hone in on creating a print on demand business you can be proud of.

Plus, in this week's Point of Interest, the guys share
a new Amazon Merch on Demand custom t-shirt listing. It seems Amazon continues to grow the program, simultaneously taking sales from other sellers trying to sell customized products on the platform. (Insert sad trombone sound here.)

Enjoy the show!
