You might be anxious to dive into this framework but before we can do any of that I think it's important that I talk about my credentials.
The reason why I think it is important is because it's way too easy to take a fake it until you make it approach to this stuff.
I can simply see what other people are writing, write something similar and have you believe that I'm legit.
On the other hand, I also don't want you to think that I'm a one-hit wonder and decided to spin that one-hit into something bigger.
My name is Paul Scrivens and I've been in this online game for a very long time.
Without being long-winded I can tell you that I'm a guy who got tired of someone else controlling his future and I was especially tired of making other people money while my income stayed the same.
I didn't like the idea that 33% of my life was going to go towards not being happy working for someone else.
So I started to create websites thinking that if others could succeed, then I could as well.
I had a couple of successes and many more failures.
A couple years ago, things finally clicked and from there I've been creating successful site after successful site.
In 2018, I made $728,506.78 without purchasing ads or doing anything crazy.
This was all from 8 different sites across different niches with different strategies.
Each of these sites falls into the framework that you're going to learn about.
I am constantly working on new projects (probably to my own detriment of time) because I like to continue to grow myself.
It's too easy to get caught up in a little bit of success and rest easy but if my goal is to help as many people as possible achieve the lifestyle that they want then I need to ensure that I'm providing them with information that is relevant to them.
That can't happen if the last time I opened up WordPress was in 2013.
Currently I'm working on two new brands which will be my major focus in 2019. The goal is to get to $3,000,000. Is it possible?
I think so.
Will I easily make it? Not at all. It means I have to make 5x more than I did last year which means I have to do a lot of things I'm not used to.
But that's why we are here.
Now for the long-winded portion.
When I was six, my parents got me a computer but I wanted a Nintendo. Since then I was a computer person.
I was fascinated with everything that a computer could do and when I discoved the Internet my mind was blown.
I went to the University of South Florida on a full ride both academically and athletically. I played soccer.
I graduated college with a Bachelor's in Management Information Systems and figured I would get a job as a programmer.
Instead, my first job was a headhunter for a really crappy boss at a really crappy company.
I didn't want to be on the phone all day so I told my boss I could build their website so I got to build their website even though I had no idea how to do it.
So I started to get into web design and figured if I started a blog on web design it would be easier to learn. The blog blew up and I became known as someone that offered unique opinions on web design.
From there I started a web design business and then a blog network.
I ended up selling both a couple years later and then I disappeared only to resurface as a Product Manager for a couple of companies in Los Angeles (your site might be hosted by one of them).
The final company I worked for got acquired and they laid everybody off. I tried to get a new job but I suck at job interviews so nobody was biting.
So, I started to get back into building online businesses and nothing was working. Not due to a lack of knowledge, but a lack of patience.
Finally, on a solo walk, I had enough and something clicked. I started to be patient and implement a couple of simple practices and the rest is history from there.
Sites and Numbers
Since some people like to see numbers, here are some traffic screenshots from 5 of my sites:
