How far would you be willing to go to start your online business?

Would you work extra hard to pay off thousands of dollars of debt and create a runway for yourself?

Would you put yourself out there, hit a bunch of events and start building relationships with people who are where you want to be?

Would you sell...your house?

I know. It sounds extreme.

Yet that is exactly what our buddy Greg Hickman did in order to build his business and gain serious momentum in only a few short months.

Best of all, he took all of his skills from working in mobile marketing for big companies and transformed them into a lucrative service-based business helping small businesses become more mobile friendly.

Have you ever felt unsure of your ability to transition from your 9-to-5 to an online business? Have you ever second-guessed yourself and your dreams because you think you don't know enough? Or you're not techie enough? Or you don't have the perfect idea? Or you don't know the first place to start? We've all been there. In fact, our good buddy John Lee Dumas didn't know a damn thing about podcasting before he started. He just knew that he wanted to matter what it took.
