You will need to learn business, marketing, branding, and come up with a niche.

You will need to spend time on the business itself (away from making stuff)

You will need to invest in learning and equipment.

  1. Great set of videos! I’m researching CNC options and your videos are very informative. You mention the time you recorded this video was November 2020 and later hoping to get to 1,000 subscribers by the end of the year. Today is October 31, 2022 and you’re channel shows 38.3k subscribers and I’m now one of them. Looking forward to learning more from you.

  2. Informative video?
    Working on getting my cnc plasma business going and looking to see if I missed some things.
    Thanks to you I now know i missed instagram?
    Been working on different products for a couple of months now and just registered my business, setup a website, accounting and all of the associated things you have to think about.
    One thing I made a priority is work with a schedule and at the moment its 2 hours product design, 1 hour marketing/research, 1 hour of paperwork and the rest goes into building, fine tuning and learning my machine.
    Doing this as a side hustle next to my day job to begin with.

  3. Great video! I’ve been doing woodworking part time while I still work full time to “pay the bills”. I just ordered a cnc to try other things I’ve been thinking of making and making them very repeatable. I’m super excited to get started creating things on the cnc. You’re very knowledgeable and gained a subscriber today. Thanks.

  4. Good advice. I think I’ll give bobs a go. I’m sure it can do signs and other 2-d well. I am concerned on its 3-d limits. Do you think it can cut as well as shapeoko and onefinity if using xcarve?

  5. Thank you for a down-to-earth initiation pep talk – it's very much appreciated. I have a CO2 (K40) and 2 diode lasers and I enjoy making small stuff on them, but the time it takes to etch an image is really tiresome due to the fineness of the laser beam. I have a digital and screenprinting signage background, which is causing me to consider CNC as a means to make signs again in the small space I have available (a garden shed!). Having watched your vid I think Will ditch the CO2 and get a small CNC machine and give it a go. Thanks again for the inspiration.

  6. Hey Garrett, Excellent and informative vid,. and in answer to your question… YES!!! very helpful you have managed to answer some questions that I wasn't even thinking that I needed to ask… clever man! Sorry to be a completely unoriginal brick in your wall but I totally poached your idea of providing a small run of a local hotels personalized coaster/table mats which not only got my first order transaction underway, but has also led to ongoing talks of me producing a small run of matching, personised, bedside table-radio/clocks! And alot of thanks are due to help I got from watching your Videos!! Thank you mate!…….******** 10/10 …..********** Any chance I get to help get you your due credit….consider it done!! …….. "C'N'C"? ? ….. "Clear and Concise" !! Thanks again Garrett!

  7. Thank you! I have a cnc machine forseveral years now and finally last night had the crazy idea to type in "how to make money with a cnc" thanks again! all valuable stuff!

  8. I'm glad I found this video, this was a perspective that I was curious about from someone that is already well down the road but willing to lay things out clear to help those of us considering to walk down it.

  9. Thanks for another informational video. Yes I agree with you having to put in the time, there has been days this pass 2 weeks that I have been working on a project that I have put in 10-12 hrs trying to understand the vectric software and putting info into carving for that perfect project. There has been times I have been thinking about the issues that were not solved for the day going to bed and wake up thinking about those same problems from the day before.

  10. Hey Garrett, liked your video…I have been running my CNC for over a year. I love working with it and have been traveling the road of hard knocks when it comes to monetizing my products. I have a Nextwave Shark HD5 CNC and love it. I too am a one man band and am working on making some money doing my passion. Question: do you or have you used outside marketing to aid your business model? I am thinking about using a Social Media Marketing company to take some of the non-production work off my plate. Is it worth it and do they produce results?

  11. Thank you Garret! How you make your research when it comes down to niche, how you know it's good niche? I know for print on demand T-shirts there are tool that you pay and they will give you monthly trends. Is there something similar in CNC?

  12. This is an amazing video Garrett. I am following your advice of creating items that you can passout so a conversation can be started with clients. You have an inspiring channel and I look forward to your videos.

  13. Garrett your thoughts are received as wisdom. I originally purchased Aspire first and then purchased a Laguna IQ CNC. Learning the software is an ongoing situation. Being efficient so that you can properly price your time and overhead is of the upmost importance. I bought into CNC so that I could take my wood working craft to a much higher level. Making things for others is always rewarding, it helps pay for tools for the next project as well. Thank you Garrett !
