About me...

I've been helping small business owners since 2005 while also starting and running several of my own. I’ve sold a couple of them and continue to run a couple of them. Here are the main ones:


In early 2017, I was wishing there was a way I could speak to a naturopathic doctor on a regular basis without having to pay $150-$200 each time. I noticed that technology was finally helping healthcare come online in a secure way that made it much more affordable and convenient for people, but nobody was doing it with natural healthcare, so I built it.

Smiling Gardener

This is where I run a 12 month online organic gardening course as well as selling organic fertilizers to gardeners and farmers in the U.S. I worked hard on it for the first 3 years, and now it pays my bills with about 2 hours of work on average per week, plus I'm helping people around the world and there is no better feeling.

Gardener's Pantry

I built and sold this business, and continue to maintain the website as well as consulting on marketing. The site sells organic fertilizers. The new owner said, "What I especially like about the new website, besides the solid information, is the nice calm tone, and how your respectful but 100% dedicated attitude is shining through."

Heather Nicholds

I co-founded this business with my ex-wife Heather. She’s a holistic nutritionist who offers cooking classes, meal plans and consultations. Similarly to 'Smiling Gardener', she now generates passive income from the site while helping others improve their health. She's amazing. If you're on a plant-based diet and need help with food, check her out.

How To Start...

My rates tend to fall between $300-$3000/month, depending mostly on how much time we spend together.
