Hello! Damon & Rita here

Damon and Rita hiking
Have you ever felt this way?
  • You want to start your own business but stuck in the grind
  • You have creative ideas but don’t know how to act on them
  • You see others building their dream businesses and you yearn for the same
  • You feel frustrated that time keeps passing and yet, no progress
If any of this rings home true, then you’ve come to the right place!

We filter the noise and help you quickly launch your online business

Starting an online business is a lot like launching a rocket. It’s that first stage which is most difficult. The breaking free from Earth’s gravity.

But rather than fighting gravity, you’re fighting basic human tendencies… like procrastination, perfectionism, information overload and overwhelm.

We don’t pretend to be perfect or have all the answers, but we do know these struggles.

Rocket launching
We’ve spent too many years on the wrong path, focusing on the wrong things, perfecting things that don’t matter and almost giving up on everything repeatedly. It’s why we started this website – to share what we’ve learned to help you overcome these obstacles!

It doesn't have to be difficult

There are very few prerequisites for starting an online business. People from all walks of life (different educational backgrounds, income level, time constraints) have found success and without a doubt, you can too. Getting started is mostly about following steps and just getting something out there. It’s a matter of:
  1. Knowing what to focus on next
  2. Taking action / doing it
Where things get mucky is finding the advice you can trust and effective blueprints you can follow. THAT is potentially the most disastrous step in your online business journey.

And when you’re working a full-time job, juggling kids, exercising, trying to have a social life and a million other responsibilities… who has the time to figure this all out? Or the energy? Right?

This is where we’re unique. Out of desperation, we’ve trudged through the fluff. We’ve painstakingly broken down the topic of online business into only the most necessary, usable, bite-size parts. We’ve made systems out of them and they work for us – and they’ll work for you.

Your time is limited and valuable. But you shouldn’t have to sideline your dreams. Our goal is to help you build your ideal life. One where you are the boss and in control of YOUR time.

Damon in 10 seconds: programmer, certified digital marketer, WordPress fanatic, productivity ocd, Firefly fan, husband

After buying a house and sports car at 20, Damon left his comfy desk job to become a freelance programmer. He then spent several years bouncing between gigs, a startup, trading lots of time for money and eventually delved into digital marketing. In 2009, he launched his first blog and achieved the coveted “five-figure” month.

The road from there wasn’t all uphill, but that’s life - and the basis for creating this website!

Rita Malkiewicz in red

Rita in 10 seconds: entrepreneur, teacher, photographer, polyglot, Stranger Things addict, wife

Rising from humble beginnings in a remote, mountain village in China, Rita put herself through university while supporting her family. She went on to start an international trade company in China - a country not exactly conducive to independent thought and business startup due to heavy government restrictions. I call it, starting a business on “expert” mode.

Transitioning to online business in 2013, Rita went on to find her own successes in teaching, video marketing and simply inspiring others with her own struggles and accomplishments.
