We're talking about his experience starting and running a successful travel blog, writing over 120 eBooks, the time he was attacked by a Thai ladyboy prostitute, his advice for people who think they don't have enough to say about a topic to start a blog, and how people can start a blog of their own when they have no idea where to begin.

This week's Friday episode is a special treat! Former guest, Kathleen Ventura, is back on the show one year (almost to the exact day) after her first appearance to give us an update on what's changed in her life.

I'm incredibly honored to say, in this episode, she publicly announces for the first time a major shift she's making in her business. I'll be the first to say, I can't wait to see where this new direction will take her.

If you haven't listened to Kathleen's original appearance yet, both of the episodes are linked in the show notes.
