Today I’m really happy to have Toni Anderson back on the podcast. Now this is isn’t the first time I’ve had her on the show. Way back in episode39, we talked about how Toni manages to run a 6 figure blog, a conference, consult on the side and home school 7 kids.

So she signed up...

Today I’ve got my buddy Dave Bryant on the show. Dave and I met when he randomly reached out to me via email and we’ve kept in touch ever since. And what’s cool is that we finally met face to face at the Ecommerce Fuel conference last year.
Dave runs several online stores selling boat equipment but I think his most successful site sells boat anchors of all things:) Big and heavy boat anchors that he imports from China. Talk about niche.
Dave also runs the popular blog ChineseImporting.com where he teaches others how to import...

He didn’t think he could walk again and during that time when he was bed ridden, he studied business, marketing and selling online 16-20 hours a day.
Fast forward to today, he’s started a...

In addition to Rich20Something.com,...

Welcome to an extra special podcast episode. As you know, I’ve been running this podcast for almost 2 years now and we just hit episode 100! Can you believe it?
And to celebrate this very special milestone, I finally convinced my wife to be a guest on the show.
Now up until this point, you haven’t heard from her at all because she’s an introvert. She doesn’t like the spotlight and she hates public speaking.
So I can not tell you what a treat it is for me to have her come on the show.
