Imagine what it would be like to wake up each morning and see the new sales you made overnight without giving it a second thought.
It’s about creating something (and doing the work upfront) that will allow you make money while YOU:
- Spend time with your family
- Spend time with your friends
- Sit on the beach while on vacation
- Hike in the mountains
- Binge watch Breaking Bad
- Or whatever you want!
The special thing about “passive income” is that when you stop trading time for money, income is scalable. It’s scalable in a way that’s not possible if you have a regular, full-time job.

How To Create a Site & Get Traffic in 6 Weeks
Starting a FIVE Figure Niche Site (FFNS) sounds … Overwhelming. When you’re just starting out, it sound like a huge goal, impossible even. It’s not impossible if you treat it like a project.
We break it down into tiny chunks of work. That’s where my project management background is essential. I’ve worked on multi million dollar projects and helped break the work down into manageable chunks.
It’s not about “get rich quick tactics” or “gaming the system” – It’s about following a refined process that’s been tested again and again.
People talk about publishing massive amounts of content and building “authority sites”, right? You should think about publish sufficient content.
But you don’t need to start publishing huge amounts of content right off the bat.
In FFNS, you’ll be implementing my proprietary Content Traffic Profit Sprint that gets you traffic fast.
Yep, 6 weeks. If you work along with the course, then you’ll be able to get traffic to your site if not sooner.
