Ever since I turned my love for competitive swimming into a profitable business in 2003, I’ve been excited about earning income online and maximizing freedom levels. Today, I’m committed to helping others do the same with their life passions. By harnessing the power of online marketing, I partner with idea-driven people to develop membership websites, e-books, and other high-value niche marketing sites that generate income and thought leadership. Leading by example, I provide expertise and guidance to those wanting to break free from the 9-to-5 office culture and pursue the life they want to be living, building freedom in an unfree world.
I focus on Internet marketing, SEO, e-books, online content development, business automation, outsourcing, podcasting, growing meetup groups, partnering and joint ventures, passive income, location-independent lifestyle, bitcoin, competitive swimming and coaching.
