On our sixth episode of The Travelpreneur Club, I had the pleasure to sit down and talk with Kevin Martin.

Kevin is the Founder of TexAdmissions.com, where he helps clients with the long and difficult process of getting accepted into the University of Texas at Austin.

Kevin assists clients with perfecting their résumés, essays, and applications to increase their odds of getting accepted into the university of their dreams.

By finding a demand in this niche, Kevin has positioned himself as a go-to consultant and has built a significant amount of his business through word of mouth.
