I’m Andy Brabender, Chicago personal injury lawyer by day and internet businessman by night. I live in Chicago with my wonderful wife, dog and two cats. I’m originally from Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin and am a graduate of UW-Eau Claire where I majored in criminal justice. After college I attended Chicago-Kent College of Law earning a J.D.
After years, nearly a decade, of plotting, researching, planning and dreaming of making a substantial income off internet based businesses, I have decided to take action. Inspired by incredible blogs including Get Rich Slowly, I Will Teach You to Be Rich, Copyblogger, The Blog of Tim Ferriss and my absolute favorite, Smart Passive Income, I created this blog to chronicle my journey and help others who have been doing a lot of thinking but not much doing.
I’m starting from nothing. Well, I shouldn’t say nothing. By nothing, I mean I have $0 internet based income and only a marginal social media presence equivalent to most people my age. Specifically, as of February 26, 2012 I have 44 Twitter followers, 337 Facebook friends and 274 Linkedin connections (mostly lawyers). I don’t have any powerful internet connections. Though I can’t discount my years of education, I have very little experience with websites and web design (obviously). I’m also not starting out with much money. I put $1000 into my business account and will attempt to grow it without supplementing that initial deposit. I don’t have any fancy software but Market Samurai and I use Bluehost for hosting.
My point is that anyone can do what I am doing, all it takes is action and a few hours every night. I’m going to show you what I do, every step of the way.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
