In 2006 I started my first consulting business and I had no idea what I was doing.
I had no resources, no contacts, and just a hint of experience… but after a bit of well timed advice and a lot of hard work, I was able to automate and scale that business to over $100k a year in profit.
Since selling that business in 2010, I’ve have built startups, run conferences, and done pretty well at performance marketing, but my heart has always been in helping freelancers and consultants live life on their terms.
In short, I’ve built this site and newsletter because I want to help you live an uncommonly good life.
You can learn more about me on my about page if you’re curious, but below you’ll find the best content I’ve published.
