This week's guest is Pete Sisco from Resilient Personal Freedom. In 1996, he decided to invest $300 in himself and start his first online business. Five years later, he monetized that website. 15 years later, it has made him millions, and he still consistently makes an income from it, among other online businesses.
After living the conventional life in Idaho with his wife for many years, and after his 6 kids grew up and moved out, Pete and his wife were ready for a different lifestyle. Knowing that their online income source was portable, they decided to sell everything and live out of their suitcases while traveling the world. 10 years later, they're still at it.
In fact, he did the interview at the place they're currently staying at in Ireland. We talk about how technology is helping people make predictable monthly income online, why minimalism is a smart way to live, why working in a cubicle is actually more of a risk, how you can achieve an insane amount of personal freedom, and so much more.
This is honestly one of the most inspiring conversations that I've had personally. I know you'll find a lot of value in this episode, but for me, Pete really confirmed a lot of things for me that I already knew, but I just needed to hear it from someone like him.
After our call, I was so motivated that I began working harder on my online course. And now, I've actually opened up the pre-order for it! So depending on when you hear this episode, it might still be going on, or the full course might have been launched. Either way, you can check it out by visiting: CreateYourOnlineShop.com/PREORDER. All of the details are there and you can get a sneak peek into the course as well. And if the pre-order is still open, you can get it at a discount as well as some free bonuses. Again, it's CreateYourOnlineShop.com/PREORDER.
Anyways, I'm so glad Pete reached out to me, and I'm stoked for you to hear this one. So without further adieu, here's my conversation with Pete Sisco. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoy this episode and be sure to subscribe to the podcast here!

When you have internet income, it's completely portable.
I've had a lifelong passion for the concept of living in freedom.
The only passive income I know about is inheritance.
You don't have to reinvent wheels, you just have to apply fundamentals in ways that are effective.
We're living in a time now, where people can take risks like this, like being completely independent and having a lot more personal freedom. And the risk is actually hugely mitigated.
There's 10,000 ways to reliably make money online.
When people talk about big dreams, they get discouraged.
Find something where you can make solid, reliable money and then use that money to do the dream life.
There's this explosion of technology that is changing the world and a lot of people are threatened by it.
But at the same time, there is enough technology that any individual can set himself up to make a reliable, durable, predictable income every month that's substantial.
People start to realize that more than half of the stuff they're paying for is related to just having their job.
The guy trapped in the cubicle is getting to be the anomaly.
I like keeping the business the size where I run the business and it doesn't run me and I have maximum personal freedom.
There's never been less risk than there is now.
I can tell ya, when you get it working and you realize how free a person you can be, it's absolutely intoxicating. There's actually an adjustment period to get your head around the fact that you can basically do whatever you want.
You can't do it overnight, but you really can engineer a lifestyle that gives you whatever amount of freedom you want.
Offer something of quality, do what you say you're gonna do, and treat people right.
The things that work online, the fundamentals, are the things that worked 100 years ago. And they'll work 100 years from today.
If you want to sleep well at night, spend time constructing a business that has durable elements to it that will offer honest value and keep offering.
You have to be in the game before you get lucky.
There's just nothing that delivers the independence and the personal freedom that having an online business does.
I've never met anyone who doesn't have a skill, an ability, or at the very least a passion that can't be of service to somebody who would be happy to pay money for it.
If you had all the money that you ever needed, if you were 100% debt-free, and you had money in the bank that was going to last you for the rest of your life, you just didn't have to think about it, what would you do? What would you want to do every day?
Some people climb the ladder of success only to discover you put it against the wrong wall. -Joseph Campbell
That's the thing about the online world, it's a big transparent economy and the answers are right there.
You don't require luck in order to succeed.
