One of the dumbest things you can do with your online business is to tell someone about a website you own that is making money. So am I an idiot for telling you about websites I’ve made money from on my blog in the past? Well, let me explain:
The eight podcast episode is now live on iTunes. In this podcast episode I speak with Michael Houtzager who has one of the most interesting online businesses selling millions of this mystery product.

Michael talks about how his emphasis on offline relationship building helped him to build a business selling millions of this mystery product to repeat buyers time and again. He teaches several very valuable lessons that apply to any online business and not just the ecommerce space that he operates in.

Living in America (or any “first world” nation for that matter) puts you in a better position than literally billions of people. Yes there are some people having a rough time here in the states, but I’m sure nothing sucks more than not being able to drink clean water. I know that the success I’ve had with my own business has come from the advantages I’ve been provided by the place I grew up in, the support of my friends and family members and anytime I think that life is sucking I try to remember what life is like for a huge chunk of earth’s population.

Nearly 1 billion people don’t have access to clean water and $5,000 can help 250 people get access to clean water.
