The Odd Gigs That Help the Heartbroken
Do you remember your first broken heart?
It hurt so much that I was convinced that pulsing pain would never go away. I bought books with titles like Heal Your Heat and listened to songs about love being some battlefield.
Luckily, my fist heart break was at an age when I had a babysitting job that paid just $10/hour because if I had more cash, I might have spent on on one of the coaches, courses, or breakup bootcamps below.
Wondering about odd ways people are making cash off breakups? Get ready for some fascinating gigs below.
Sharing a variety of different breakup businesses and business models I found on the internet. If you want to get into this space, dig into these businesses and figure out one that’s helpful to your audience (the broken hearted) and better than these that exist. That’s a recipe for success.
The Break Up Shop - this is an entire business that helps people end relationships! They make cash off of services, affiliate links, and potential conferences or books.
Onward - a company that helps you relocate and get your life back on track after a breakup. For $299, you get access to services like help finding housing, therapy, matchmakers, financial planners, community, and more.
Renew Breakup Bootcamp - a weekend bootcamp to help you process your breakup and get ready for what is next. Amy Chan (who has been a guest on my podcast) is the founder and makes money from the bootcamp, books, courses, and more.
Breakup Coaching & Courses - this entrepreneur makes cash off of $200/hour breakup coaching sessions and courses starting around $50. She has great SEO so it was easy to find her website when I typed in “breakup coaching”. Because of that, someone desperate for this kind of help will find her website first and likely pay that cash without researching other people.
Sell Your Love Stuff - this website is a marketplace for you to sell your old engagement ring or jewelry once a relationship ends.
One more idea - people are hiring celebs off Cameo to end their relationship. Could you start a whole platform to offer this? Hmmmm.
