Hey I'm Barnabas & Thats My Better Half Marissa
First, thanks for dropping by SerialBoss and checking out the awesome stuff we do here with parents and side hustles! Before we get into talking about me. Lets briefly talk about you for a moment. Afterall the point of this blog is to come alongside you and help you achieve financial success as busy parents with side hustles!
I want you to meet someone:
Hey, my name is Marty. I live in northern Indiana and I just turned 28 years old. I have a wife (Kensi) and two kids with an adoption on the way! My wife and I both work at decent day jobs making roughly 50k a year total, our jobs do have some seasons of stress and busy times!
We are getting by on what we make, our cars are paid for and we have a little bit of school loan debt left. It’s nothing fancy but we have a roof over our heads, food on the table, and a little bit left over each month to put towards savings/investments. I have always loved having side projects, but having one that made money would be awesome!
However, my wife and I do not have time for either one of us to get another part-time job we are already busy as well with “life”. Plus we want to make it a focus to try and be home with our kids and spend family time. We also do love to take some family vacations when the budget allows for them.
Having a side hustle that can compliment my day job would be awesome! I know that upfront its going to take lots of work, but I can do that when the kids and wife go to bed. Even an extra $550/month would make our budgeted life so much easier and be able to put more away for our adoption and then our retirement!
Who knows one day it might even take off so much I could do my side hustle full time, but for now I really just want to have a semi-passive side hustle that can bring enough to help with the adoption cost and then to fully max out our Roth IRA each month without having to use our day jobs money for it.
Thanks, Marty! If this sounds like you then you are in the right place! After you read a bit about me below, why not start here with my first ever side hustle that made us an extra $1,000/week all while going to school full time!
Ok, Now Onto Me!

I got my first real start of owning a business in 7th grade. My best friend and I at the time started a car detailing company after a challenge from our local church to raise money for missions.
We found that it was a very profitable side hustle in 7th grade and we made $1,000 in the first week. Here comes the no BS part...IT WAS HARD!
But we continued on during high school and learned some pretty valuable lessons about hard work, marketing, management, and how to be profitable!
Fast forward a few years and a few other semi-successful entrepreneur startups, we land in 2014 where I found the online world of money making.
I am an addict to SEO and all things digital marketing, it fascinates me!
We started an online digital marketing company in 2015 with my father, he is a huge role model of mine and we currently own two companies together.
In the same year, I found Pat Flynn and Boby Hoyt and couldn't consume enough knowledge from their endeavors.
I love personal finance and as a busy parent its essential to have a budget to keep track of everything. Why I support and think that's necessary. There are a bazillion other budgeting blogs and resources out there, and not enough resources for creating more realistic income from multiple sources for parents.
(PS. I also enjoy nice things when I have the money for them so yeah...)
I wanted to create something that was for busy parents, who already worked a day job, had some hustle in them to create another income source, but couldn't get another part-time out of the house job because of children or family commitments.
So thus SerialBoss was born. An online resource for parents who wanted to create multiple income streams, learn how with real information on making money and how to use the tools to get them there while starting a successful side business.
Hint: Almost everything boils down to two things: taking massive action & playing the long game!
Why the name SerialBoss?
Since starting SerialBoss I have been asked this question multiple times. I came up with the name because my whole life I have had either multiple (serial) businesses running at the same time to stay diversified and to increase my income! Or I have started and sold multiple companies.
I just so happen to have either always been the boss (owner) of those companies or for the two that I wasn't an owner, I practically ran the place and was the boss of like 75 employees.
Now that I am married and my wife and I have kids we are also always juggling multiple things at once; kids, side hustles, families, day jobs, house renovations, etc. But we are the boss of our own lives and that has helped greatly!
So now you know
If I have learned anything in the last few years it's that life is too short. Do something you love, so you can enjoy time with your loved ones, read amazing books, and give freely to those who are in need!
Still, have questions? Feel free to send me a quick email. I will do my best to answer each and every one of them!
