Gideon’s entrepreneurial journey started about 9-10 years ago. He had a great job but something wasn’t feeling quite right. For several reasons, he decided to quit his job and work for himself. Gideon and his wife moved to Australia on a whim to ‘start over’. They thought it would be easier to do something new in a new place, and it worked! It helped them focus on their relationship and their business.
The first thing Gideon did was he wrote an ebook and it sold extremely well in 77 countries. But once the excitement of his book died down he realized that his site traffic was gone, his sales were gone and his money was gone. He knew he needed to research and learn how to drive traffic. After interviewing several experts, he started to figure it out. After each success, he just kept learning and building from there.
