I hate to admit it but I have been dreading to write this income report update. I have been putting if off and procrastinating to hit the keys and get my thoughts and emotions down on paper for the month that was September. Why? To be honest… There is nothing good to report. :( So if you want to save yourself I don't mind if you shut down this tab in your browser now. It was the hardest month I’ve had with my business since it began (although only a couple of months in). On top of ... Read More
Are You Ready to Rumble! Announcing the Niche Website Championship
Back in March I wrote a post on how I met Dan the Brazilian man in Pai, Thailand. If you missed out on the story read about it here and here. As Dan, Hannah (Dan’s partner) from StoryV and I have gotten to know one another we have wanted to follow a similar theme to Pat Flynn’s Niche Site Duel but we have created our own around a UFC theme for kicks. I’m super excited as we are finally getting around to making it happen. Yay! And if you’re wondering what the heck a Niche site duel or challenge ... Read More
Income Report July/August 2014
Its been an epic last couple of months to say the least. July was spent learning the ropes of online affiliate marketing, making my way through the course material and videos, and conducting a ton of research on which will be the most viable product/s to promote to start earning as soon as possible. After getting researched out I realised that the best products to be promoting was anything to do with healthcare, skincare, health and fitness related products (supplements). Anything that ...

BREAKING NEWS! My First Sale in 10 Days with Affiliate Marketing!
Right now I am totally flabbergasted! I am in total shock that I have actually achieved my first sale from my first niche website in 10 days of beginning! But what is even more shocking is that the website is not even complete!!! Sorry in advance for all the techie talk but no backlinking, search engine optimization or promotion has been attempted yet which makes me question how my site was found?

Do you need a Freelancer?…. revisited.
Are Freelancers really necessary for building passive income? From all the people I have researched online who are making passive income from their internet businesses are not doing alone. Some are using, including myself, outsourcing platforms like Odesk or Freelancer. Most of them have a team working in the background for them whilst they can work on what’s important - building value and driving users to their niche. Most of this ‘in the background’ work is outsourced to countries within Asia ... Read More
How to keep focused in the early days of building passive income
Recently most of my time has been spent setting up social media and goofing around with Wordpress themes, theme detectors , plugins and plenty of other time wasting activities. Sure, whenever you're trying to build an online presence some of these processes are important but there has got to be a point when enough is enough and you have to just get on with it! Sometimes you might think you're working toward building passive income, when in reality you're probably not. How can you tell if ... Read More
Do you need a Freelancer… yet?
If you missed my last post, I was in the middle of finding a web designer at Freelancer and this blog had only just begun. New applicants have now slowed to a grinding halt in response to the web design ad and most of them are waiting for me to hire them. Many of them have talent and can develop sites but most don't have artistic flair. I was almost set to pick the potential candidate mentioned in the previous post. That was until I met a fellow nomadic entrepreneur named Dan at our ... Read More
