I never wanted a boss. Ever. Also, I absolutely cannot stand commuting anywhere. Since a very young age I had a problem with authority and always wanted to do my own thing. It’s not that I didn’t like people. I love people. I love motivating, making people laugh, all that fun stuff. I just never wanted anyone telling me what to do. I just couldn’t shake it, no matter how hard I tried. For the first 6 years of my working career I did the best I could, but just couldn’t ignore the feeling of not wanting to work for someone.
One day I found this blogging platform and it changed my entire career and life forever. Six months later, I quit my job and never looked back. Not once. That was back in 2007.
I began my journey in digital media with the creation of one website. Today, the portfolio of 9 sites reaches 6 million visitors a month and spans numerous verticals including lifestyle, entertainment, pets, home, finance, and more. To date, I’ve never taken any investment capital and have never had an employee. Overall, it’s been fantastic and I’ve made more money than I ever could have hoped for from the privacy of my own home. That’s part of what I love talking about and teaching others to do.
These days I have a flexible schedule which allows me to pursue some of the interests in my life which include playing piano, reading as much as I possibly can, staying healthy, and most importantly being around my wife and two boys. Some might say I’m around them TOO much because I work from home and it gets a little insane at times, but I’ll take the crazy any day of the week over going to an office.
In any event, after doing this for 13 years (and counting) and only having taught a handful of people how I do what I do, I decided it was time to share some of my philosophies and tips with the general public.
