Todays guest entrepreneur speaking to us on the Steve Jobs inspired business podcast, is a man who from his home in the town of Thunder Bay Ontario Canada, has set about living the life that lights him up inside. He admits to never having felt really settled in life, and at his core has always had the desire to go against the norm and do things his own way.
And certainly at the moment, he is flourishing within that mind-set, as he is busy creating both the time freedom that we all want in our life, and a series of online ventures that can give him the aforementioned freedom.
For most people family comes before everything, they are the reason that we are here. But also for most people we see less of our families than anything else as we set about building the income and providing the support that they need...yep work gets in the way of everything.
This is not a career man as such, as he likes nothing more than spending time with his daughter and wife, and so in just two years has grown his current online business, from $0 to $490k in annual revenue, This is a fully digital business, in a tiny market, with average sales of just less than $27 per transaction.
He starts, runs, and grows online businesses and can help us all do the same.
But in life all paths and ventures that seem that the guest was destined for, actually took many years for them to find and he was no exception.
He spent his earlier years travelling coast-to-coast across Canada playing drums in several punk rock bands.
Although not a punk in fashion, he has never let go of the D.I.Y. ethic that taught him: if you want something to change, you have to do it, get it done, or stop complaining about it.
See that free spirit again, can never be denied when it is who we are.
His latest creation is called VelocityPage, a Premium WordPress plugin that allows anyone to create beautiful web pages in minutes — without code.
He is also the host of the hit podcast Hack The Entrepreneur.
So what is it about him that had always felt unsettled?
And what advice can he give all of us as we look to find the thing that makes us bound out of bed each morning and never have to see our boss's face again?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only career driven freedom expert Jon Nastor

Podcast: Hack The Entrepreneur with Jon Nastor
Description: Hack The Entrepreneur reveals the fears, habits, and inner-battles behind big name entrepreneurs and those on the path to success. It is a show created for you the entrepreneur, small business owner, or startup founder. 'Entrepreneur hacking' can be any trick, shortcut, skill, or method that allows anyone to crush it in business and in life. In other words, it is anything that solves a problem entrepreneurs have in an inspired, ingenious way. We know that everyone is unique and that they have to find their own path to success, but after personally speaking to entrepreneurs every day as part of my own successful online business, I became obsessed with the idea of finding the ‘replicable’ things successful people do, to try to find the patterns. Not so you can copy them, but instead absorb it into what you do everyday, so you can make your own success and one day help others ‘Hack the Entrepreneur’ too. Whether you are looking for success with blogging, social media, passive income, YouTube, search engine optimization, startups, affiliate marketing, outsourcing, overcoming fears, doubts, or building your own business on your terms, Hack the Entrepreneur can and will help you.
