I believe that learning can be easy if you are given the right tools and instruction. In every one of my courses I take my students step-by-step through the tools and knowledge they need to accomplish their goals.

Whether I am teaching How I Retired Early Publishing Kindle eBooks or How to Create Killer Content for the Web I always share an inside view of my knowledge about the subject. You get access to all of my secrets.

For over 10 years I have studied strategies to create passive income and how to use passive income to vastly improve the quality of your life.

I have tested many different strategies including:

  • Investing in rental real estate
  • Building niche websites about my hobbies (like my pottery-on-the-wheel website) and
  • Publishing Kindle eBooks.

I have studied what works and what doesn't work and I have narrowed my research down to the strategies that work the best for creating financial freedom and an improved quality of life.

Each of my courses is designed to share with you these secrets. I hold nothing back. And I won't bore you with all of the strategies that don't work. I'll get right into the exact steps that I have taken to be successful so that you have the opportunity to replicate it.

Of course, it's no secret that one of my favorite way to generate truly passive income is through publishing Kindle eBooks. I have published over 100 eBooks and published five of those in print. Many of my books have been bestsellers including my own pottery book The Despicable Five.

Once I figured out the Kindle publishing system, some formatting secrets that for some reason are not easy to find, and learned how to use some simple SEO skills that I learned while testing out website building, publishing eBooks became remarkably simple.

Even hiring writers, which would seem scary at first, is really easy and even fun, when you follow my system. I even have it set up so you can publish one or two books and then roll the profits from them into hiring writers so you aren't taking any money out of your pocket.

It starts out as a little income snowball and as you add the profits back into the snowball it grows and grows until you are seeing a surprising and exciting amount of passive income.

I retired in 2014 thanks to my eBook publishing success. Now, when I'm not skiing or kayaking or hiking with my 7 year old son I'm using my spare time to find the best ways to create passive income. As I find great ways to make money from home I'm more than happy to share what I learn with you.

I'm here to guide you on your way to success.

I'm glad you found me and I'm excited to have the opportunity to share my experience with you! 

Welcome to the course.
