You may be wondering a little about how I came to be here with you today.
Let me tell you a quick story about graduating from University with a degree in a field I didn’t want to work in. Instead, I went to work with my father in the restaurant business. Turned out I didn’t like that very much either and father was getting older. So, after 5 years of being head chef and chief bottle washer, we sold the restaurant.
Then I became a ‘cog in the wheel’ for a medium-sized corporation that provides call center services. I was hired to be their internet marketing specialist. This is also where I met my future wife.
At the same time, I was trying to figure out how I could create time freedom and financial security for myself and my family by leveraging the internet.
I was constantly struggling with how to make my goals become reality.
And I was getting more and more disgusted with working ‘for the man’.
Then something really bad happened: my father, who I was really close to, became sick. Soon after my wife and decided it was time to try having our first child so that my Dad could meet his grandchild before he passed.
Over a 3 year period his condition became worse and worse and he eventually passed away due to complications from myasthenia gravis. Our daughter was almost 2 when it happened, so he did get to meet her 🙂
Over the years of caring for my father took a toll on my dreams of an online business. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade that time with my father for anything in the world, but that time did set me back.
Turns out I’m only human and working full-time with a young family, a dying father and a fat mortgage leaves little room for anything else. You might be wondering where was my Mom in all this. Breast cancer got her when I was 3.
After my dad passed away I was in bad shape and desperate. It was a strange feeling, I was in early 30’s with a young family, but somehow I felt like an orphan because both my parents were gone.
Even though it was very difficult time, I wasn’t ready to give up on my dream of providing a wonderful lifestyle for my new family: my wife and daughter.
Then I put all my effort into building my online business and finally figured out how all the pieces fit together to make a living on the internet.
At that point, everything changed!
I finally figured out how to:
- Create services that caused business owners and solopreneurs to COME TO ME to help them, so I never had to chase a lead again.
- Create simple websites that generated passive income through selling ad space and affiliate promotions.
- Build products that help people learn, master and make money so they can live their dreams as well. All using WordPress and other online services.
Because I figured out how all the pieces fit together to make a living on the internet, I was able to:
- Live my dream of working from home with a legitimate business while spending as much time as I wanted with my family.
- Make a huge difference in people’s lives all over the world both through my teachings, but also through my philanthropic efforts.
- Help other people reach their business and life goals by leveraging the power and scale of the internet.
Now I’m living my dream of providing a wonderful lifestyle for my family and I never have to worry about spending my time doing things I don’t like ever again.
And that’s why I’m so passionate about creating “WordPress training to help you make more money for yourself, your clients and your business” so you can use the same tools I did to create the lifestyle you want to live too!
See you at the top!
Update: Our family is growing! We now have 3 kids. My wife assures me we’re not having any more, but that’s what she said at 2…
