Successfully Balancing an Online Business and a Full-Time Job with Tom Drake [Interview]

As I mentioned when I announced that I am taking a break from The Daily Interview, I am still going to publish interviews here from time to time.

Today, I’m excited to bring you an interview with a blogger who I admire, Tom Drake.  He’s one of the models for how to succeed with your online projects while working a very busy full-time job.

Tom also has what I consider to be a pretty unique aspect of his business where he partners with other writers/bloggers and allows them to focus on what they’re best at.  The end result is that the business becomes more successful and profitable because of the value that Tom is able to add to the relationship.

We talk about these partnerships, Tom’s background, and more in the interview below.

Interview with Spencer Haws (and A Free Copy of Long Tail Pro)

Today I’m excited to bring you an interview with Spencer Haws, someone who I’ve followed for a long time.

He’s an internet entrepreneur who quit his job early in 2011 and has amassed quite an impressive list of accomplishments: He has earned a six-figure income through his niche sites with Google AdSense, developed one of the top keyword research tools on the market today (Long Tail Pro), and has worked on a number of other projects that he documents on his blog, Niche Pursuits.

In this interview, I asked Spencer a wide array of questions that I thought people would be really interested to read about. Spoiler alert: At the end of the interview, I’ll explain how you can win a free copy of Long Tail Pro.

Interview with Brooke Ferguson from

Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing Brooke Ferguson from  For those who aren’t familiar with Brooke and her work, she leads a pretty fascinating lifestyle.  In fact, I would say she lives and breathes lifestyle design, and seems to do an excellent job teaching others how to do the same.

You hear a lot about people preaching “lifestyle design,” but Brooke actually demonstrates it.  She was even featured on the Discovery Channel (the show aired this past December), which I thought was really cool.  After coming across her blog and reading about how she travels the world, basically living out her innermost passions, I knew she was someone who I had to interview for My4HWW.

Wednesday Morning Bits & Pieces: Interview at Smart Income Blog and What’s Upcoming On The Blog

coffeeHey everyone, I hope your week is going well!  We’re halfway through, and the weekend is right around the corner.  I just wanted to make a post with two very quick notes that might be of interest to you:

  • I was interviewed by Kevin over at Smart Income Blog for his “Bloggers You Should Follow” series, which has already featured other bloggers like Maren Kate from Escaping the 9 to 5.  In the interview, I answer questions about what inspired me to pursue entrepreneurship in general, what gadgets I can’t live without, and what my biggest challenge is in my passive income quest.  It’s a fairly short interview, but I definitely recommend checking it out.  And thanks, Kevin, it was an honor to be a part of your series!
  • I’m almost ready to unleash part 3 of the Info Barrel Earnings Challenge. It’s going to be all about how to get your articles (and any websites) to rank higher in Google.  I’m going to go through a ton of great options and sites that can help you accomplish that.  Look for that later this week.

Have a great Wednesday!
