Apologies for the tiny bit of static that came through in the recording.

This is one great interview if you are looking for a step-by-step story of how a guy can manage a full-time job and develop a niche site income during his spare time. It’s also incredibly inspirational if you are new to this game of making money online.

Patrick didn’t do anything unusual. He simply built a website about addiction (which he personally had recovered from) and then filled it with incredibly valuable content from his own experiences and knowledge. It helps that he is a prolific writer, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that he had to sit down and get the work done and find the time to do so around working a full-time job.

Make sure you listen to the interview where Patrick talks about the hardcore writing sessions he would commit to, producing as many as 400 articles in a month while on holiday from his job! He also explains how his AdSense income grew slowly at first and what he did to grow it from $100 a month to $200, then $300, $600, $1,000 and $2,000.

Patrick ends his story explaining how he stumbled across a buyer for his site and managed to secure his dream price – $200,000, enough money to invest and live off so he didn’t need a job again, while he moved on to new online projects.

And yes, of course, he did quit his job.

Tips From Patrick:

  • Give yourself a “daily quota” – For example, write every day and you will become better at it and quicker too
  • Know your subject well and keeping a quota is easy because you have lived it
  • Do keyword research within your existing statistics to find good topics to focus on (where the traffic is)
  • Ask for your dream money and someone may just say yes
