Close your eyes and imagine lounging in Paris, while your phone keeps pinging with alerts every few minutes that you have a deposit in your account for $297 or $595 from people back at home purchasing local services from your website — all while you’re taking pictures at the Louvre or walking up the stairs of La Tour Eiffel (The Eiffel tower for regular folks like me).
Well that’s my life now.
And after failing at a gazillion other ideas, I started my first local service business in 2012, grew it to millions in revenue, and since them I’ve been helping other people get there as well. Today, my courses, guides, and software have thousands of people enrolled all over the world.
I now know what it takes to create, launch, and grow a location independent service business and crush it.

One week before I was laid off from my job
This was my last week at my “good job” as an accountant.
A week after this photo was taken, I would find myself laid off from work, with no income, and rapidly burning through my savings.
In mere months, I had withdrawn all the money from my 401k to pay my mortgage so I wouldn’t lose my home.
I tried launching my first internet company to try to get some money coming in but everything I tried failed!
From affiliate marketing, to Amazon, to Ebay, to ecommerce stores...
And that’s when I realized that I needed to be doing something that the entire world wasn’t doing.
If you're not familiar with Reddit, it's a forum where you can discuss just about anything.
While I had so far failed at building an online business, my failures so far had taught me a lot about online marketing, affiliate marketing, ecommerce, and more.
I felt that I could take those skills and build a local service business using traditional ecommerce techniques...and do it in a way where I would show it in happening in real time on Reddit.
And that’s what I did. That companies turned into a 6 figure company. And the next one I started has now done over $10 million dollars.
I was obviously onto something!
I’ve been there. And as soon as I figured out these TWO things, nothing was ever the same. Here’s the two things that changed my life.
There are certain types of businesses that everyone online pursues like clockwork — Affiliate marketing, blogging, Ebay/Amazon, and Shopify ecommerce stores. All the smart money and smart people are essentially pursuing the same thing.
The minute I got off this overcrowded train and pursued my own lane, and went after the thing that no one else wanted to do? That’s where the huge wins happened! Local services fit this bill perfectly.
The best place to be in business is to compete with folks that do not fully understand internet marketing, don’t have the tools to fully leverage growth in their business.
Once I learned this I went from $1,000 business launches that then fizzled out to $20,000 launches that turned into 6, 7, and 8 figure businesses all with local services.
I was hired to speak at NorthWestern University MBA Program
