From BROKE Scuba Diving Instructor to Freaking Happy Entrepreneur ?

I started SEO as a part thing… mainly trying to feed the family after I quickly realized my job as a diving instructor wasn’t going to pay for … mmm…. food .

The day that I decided to quit my diving job, my wife sat on the Kitchen and cried. She really cried. I was making $500 per week and it was scary to “loose” that money. It wasn’t fun times let me tell you.

That was… well… 3 and 1/2  years ago. My SEO part time thing is now full time. I breath, eat, sleep what I do and I love it.

Last year my business went from 6 figures to double 6 figures. ;) (you make the numbers) All these while working in my tiny home office here at Merimbula, trying to be honest with who I am and without pretending to be anything I’m not.

So how did I did it? What’s the SECRET? lol.

Well, Andrew Warner from Mixergy asked me that same questions.

    You’ve really done a quite exceptional job Gabriel. Very few entrepreneurs have the skills and drive to get in there and get things done like you do.
    Well done.

    You really have the guts Gabriel, thanks for sharing this real life happening that you’ve experience. In my part, this one is also a part time job for me. I might think the next step that I will decide to make is to go into business. My site is just a couple of days old.

    Great interview. Really helped me figure out what you learned from other entrepreneurs and how to apply those things. Glad to hear about all the success.

    Would also love to find out about your Premium Membership scholarship.

    Keep rocking!

    Glad to see success out there. It means there’s hope for me. lol. I’m on the same path (hopefully) and I’m in the “full-time job with a part-time job on the side” stage of it all looking to move forward soon.

    You are an inspiration, this is something I would love to be able to do. Especially like the monologue with the SEO expert that spammed you…to funny! How do you manage all you clients and keep the projects organized, any favorite software or just a pad and paper :)
