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 fed up with working ‘for the man’.

Then something really bad happened: my father, who I was really close to, became sick. Shortly thereafter 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 first daughter was almost 2 when it happened, so he did get to meet her 🙂

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 it did set us back.

Turns out I’m only human and working full-time with a young family, a sick father living with us and a fat mortgage leaves little room for anything else. You might be wondering where was my Mom in all this. Breast cancer took her from us when I was 3.

After my dad passed away I was in bad shape and desperate. It was a strange feeling, I was in my early 30’s with a young family, but somehow I felt like an orphan because both my parents were gone. I can’t explain it, but that’s how I felt.

Even though it was very difficult time, I wasn’t ready to give up on my dream of providing a wonderful lifestyle for my family.

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 online so they can live their dreams as well. 

I did all this using WordPress and a few 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…

Update 2: Our family is still growing, but not with kids. We got another dog 🙂 So now we have 3 kids and two dogs. We almost lost our youngest daughter in 2024, who was 5 at the time. She contracted pneumococcal meningitis in February of 2024. We were in the hospital for 16 days. She was receiving the strongest broad spectrum antibiotics available for entire 16 days. The first few days of our hospital stay were probably the worst days of my life so far. While our daughter was laying in the hospital bed unresponsive for those first few days, the initial medical tests showed what she had. The doctor said it was “pneumococcal meningitis“, which I knew was bad, but I didn’t know how bad. Google is not your friend when you’re looking medical issues. After those first days, she started to come back to the world and miraculously, she’s made a full recovery. Now we donate the local Women’s and Children’s Hospital every chance we get.
