I started my entrepreneur journey full time in late September 2015. Before that I worked full time for other companies, though I’ve always had side hustles such as this site you are currently reading.

I get a lot of “outreach” emails trying to get me to add links to websites from my own sites. Of course, what these poor junior “outreach specialists” don’t know is that I’ve been in this game for a lot longer than they have and I’ve both sent and received my share of really bad link building emails.
