ActiveGrowth is all about becoming an effective entrepreneur and building valuable, long lasting online businesses on a bootstrap budget. What sets this site apart from your typical online marketing blog derives from these 3 fundamental principles:

Sell Your Own Product

Learn to create your own information products, provide a service, sell software. Stop looking for shortcuts or chasing after "passive" income.

Character Matters

Successful businesses are run by highly productive and focused people with strong work ethic and good habits. Become one of them.

Own the Platform

Focus on building out your own website, your own brand and your audience. Don't become a slave to 3rd party platforms that you can't control.

I've created a free mini-course that you can access online. It walks you through a case study of how I launched my first info product. I've launched dozens of products, so why focus on my first one? Because back then, I was truly starting from scratch. I had no large mailing list, I didn't have money to spend on advertising or to hire people, I didn't have any insider connections.

If you're in the same situation and want to know how you can get a business off the ground, I think you'll like this course.
