Hi, I'm Jonny
Hi, I’m Jon Nastor. I have been starting and running businesses for the past 13 years. My entrepreneurial journey began with multiple businesses offline, but in 2011 I discovered the 'internet as a business' and decided that I would never work offline again.
By 2012, I was running a successful software company from my laptop, travelling the world with my wife and daughter, and playing drums in a punk rock band. I had the freedom to work when and where I wanted and had achieved the 4 Hour Work Week, but I had the desire to do something meaningful.
Up until now, I had spent a large portion of my life picking the brains of entrepreneurs that had walked the entrepreneurial path before me and I wanted to share what I had learned -- entrepreneurs are not born, they are created through mindset, hard work, and a desire to do meaningful work.
200+ interviews and over 1.2 million downloads later and I want to give you the best hacks. That's exactly what this book will give you.
I love how the internet has changed mine and my family's life and I cannot wait to help you start, build, and grow your very online business.
