Posted on / by Natalie Sisson / in Podcast / 4 comments

Could you imagine starting a digital magazine business and having to compete with the likes of Huffington Post and Forbes?

212 Nathan Chan QuotesToday’s guest did just that and became very successful in a short amount of time.

Back in 2014, I met Nathan Chan when I was running a Build Your Online Business workshop in Melbourne and he was still in a full-time job. Now he is earning 6-figures from his digital magazine business!

Nathan Chan is the founder of Foundr magazine, a digital magazine for young, aspiring and novice entrepreneurs and is now the top 10 ranked business and investing magazine in the app store sitting next to Fast Company, Entrepreneur, HBR and Forbes.

He has interviewed some of the most successful entrepreneurs like Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, Seth Godin, Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John Tony Robbins and many more.

In the past 30 days he has generated 30,000 email subscribers from Instagram alone and built their following to 380,000+ in 11 months.

In this podcast episode, Nathan shares how he got Richard Branson to be in his magazine, what sets him apart, what he loves about Instagram and the results he gets from using it.
