Curious about how to start an online business?  Glad to meet you!  So here’s a little about me, and then a little about you !

About Me

My name is Mike.  I’ve been a student of online marketing since 2010 when I stumbled onto Pat Flynn’s “Smart Passive Income” website.  I’m still a huge SPI fan to this day. Why? Because I learn so much from ethical, sharing folks like him.

At this same time I found MJ DeMarco’s book The Millionaire Fastlane, which opened my eyes to understanding the power of scale and reach through internet marketing.  

Since then, I’ve discovered many valuable sources of information that continue to educate me about digital marketing, how to start an online business, and how to keep it running. 

My aim with this site is to share that information with you and save you time

Here’s how: 

  • By sharing the thought process I used to start an online business and get my first site up and running quickly
  • By regularly pointing you to great articles and videos with awesome content that will help you start or grow an internet business.

Not only will I catalog my start-up thinking process for you, but as a bonus you can have first access to all the new learning I find.  There are a lot of places on the web with great information, but it takes time to discover them – your valuable time.

What if you could find those places by simply opening an occasional email?  From me!

Use the opt-in form to the right and get learning!

Here’s what happens: Once you sign up, I’ll provide you with links to the best blog posts, articles, and videos I find.  Things that are clearly going to show you the way it should be done, by the people who do this right all the time.  Don’t worry, I won’t spam you (hate when that happens!) – just a few emails a month, and only when I find content that could make a real difference to you by explaining things that you should know as you build and grow your business.  

The benefit to you:  Time saved – Every bit of information you consume compounds your learning, but there’s a lot of it out there.  I’ll point you to solid sources of valuable, ethical online business topics from folks who have really taken off.  

Being a student never stops.  Just as I’m still learning, I want to help you do the same. The great content I find will help transform you and help you move ahead faster.

P.S. This is a giving community of online entrepreneurs, thus there’s a side benefit to what I offer by pointing you to great content:  I not only help you, but I give back to the many great bloggers whose content taught me so much, by growing their audience.

I hope you enjoy being here and benefitting from the great teachers, as I have.

Oh, and About You

I’m guessing you’re here out of curiosity, ether as a total newbie (we’ve all been there) or as a more experienced website/business owner.  Either way, I’ll bet you’re a bit of a learner. That’s good, because I’m all about continuing education and passing on the knowledge I’ve gained to improve your efforts.

Whether you’re looking to find out what digital marketing holds for you or just seeking to build upon what you know, you’ve come to the right place.

It would be awesome if you’d do two quick things:

  1. Subscribe and I’ll let you know the minute something new hits the page.
  2. Leave a note here and let me know what you want to learn about how to start an online business from home.  That’ll help me focus on the topics you’re interested in and serve you better.

Welcome, and wishing you success,


DISCLAIMER: I’m not a lawyer, tax consultant, or anything more than a continual student who has learned a lot of things and wished I had some crib notes, so to speak, to help speed my learning.  Take what I offer as a gesture of camaraderie and support as you start out, and anywhere along your learning curve.
