It’s terrible when there’s activity on your site that you’re BLIND to. What pages are people using? What calls to action are effective? Etc. (Note: we haven’t fully launched this yet, but you can be the first to know about a new course we’re doing on tuning up your website to be way more effective in just 3 days.)

If you are stuck in the romantic notion of what it looks like to create a business and you need some motivation to stop running away from the hard work, you’re going to love this episode. On today’s show we are joined by none other than Justin Jackson, who went from having a day job to being a successful author and creating 100 projects in one year, all to show that it is possible for you to become an indie entrepreneur (even in Canada!).

If you’re working through all the hope and doubt and strategies it takes to become a full-time blogger, then you’re going to enjoy the bejeezus out of this episode. Today on the show we are joined by Beth Hornback, who has an incredible story about how she carefully worked the steps and stages necessary to quit her job and work on her blog full-time.
