Big News: I Just Sold the Niche Site Project 4 Site!

I have BIG news to share today!

I've officially sold my site,! This has been my public case study site for Niche Site Project 4 over the past 3 years.

You can read all the news about my exit right here.

How much did I sell the site for?

Why did I sell the site?

Where did I find the buyer?

How much was the site making when I sold it?

What's next?

All of these questions and more are answered.

I actually recorded a full podcast interview (with Jared Bauman) and we talked through the exit of Own The Yard.

So, if you want all the details, I highly recommend that you listen to or watch the full interview right here.

Overall, Niche Site Project 4 has been an amazing journey and I truly hope that it has been educational as you've followed along.

I was able to build a successful niche site for all to see and the income exceeded all my original goals. Phew!

Thanks again for following along,
