‘I work just 5 hours a week’

2 min read

I never was the entrepreneurial type. But after losing my job as an audio engineer in 2009, I had to get creative to make ends meet.

Thirteen years later, at age 39, I’ve built two online businesses that earns me a combined $160,000 a month in passive income. I also recently published a book, “How to Get Paid for What You Know.”

The first business I started was The Recording Revolution, a music and education blog that sells music production courses. The second, which I started in 2018, teaches people how to make money off their passions, like I did. It’s the most lucrative business, thanks to online course and coaching program sales, as well as affiliate commissions.

Graham Cochrane started his first business in 2009. Since then, he’s scaled two online companies and now grosses about $120,000 per month.

Around 2,800 people use my products, and my goal is to help more entrepreneurs grow their online businesses while working fewer hours.

My top priorities are spending time with family and being able to give back, so I’ve set up my work and personal life to be able to focus on those key values.

Here’s what my typical day looks like:

Mornings start slow and easy

I usually wake up at 5 a.m. — before the kids — because I always want an hour to myself. I’ll start with coffee and my Bible.

After some reading, praying and journaling, I’ll make breakfast with my wife and wake the kids. We’ll spend 20 to 30 minutes eating together in the kitchen before I drop them off at school by 7:30 a.m.

Then I head back to my home office, or do a quick gym session if I’m in the mood.
