About Online Business Dude
Hi and Welcome to obdude.com!
I’m Tim, an Internet Marketer and Online Business Dude originally from Germany. I have the freedom to travel the world because I make my full time income online.
And I created this blog to show others how I do it.
Online business and making (passive) income online has been a passion of mine ever since my first “real” job.
If you are employed right now you probably know what I mean: Job security is a joke. And even if you like parts of your role, working for the man – sorry, but it’s just the truth – plain sucks.
A Short Story About Me
After digging in several “make money online” methods for years, I’ve really had it. I wasn’t making significant amounts of cash or even the needed sum to live a sustainable lifestyle.
I came across the same advice over and over, but for me the described methods of making money online or generating passive income wouldn’t work.
The ultimate method to make money on the internet needed to fulfill the following attributes:
- A real, online business, 100% location independent
- Scalable (very lucrative over the years and with the potential to scale things up big time)
- Diversify-able (not relying on one (trending) niche or industry, and especially not on one company, one product or one customer)
- Sustainable (no MLM, no recruiting scheme or spammy method)
- Simple (in terms of an easy to understand business model and doable for me personally)
- Fun (for the most part the work needs to be enjoyable, otherwise I just create a job for myself. But I want the freedom first and foremost!)
For those reasons working online as a freelancer was never the goal, as it’s not really scalable.
I wanted to build a real business and was not interested in some shady “quick money making method” that would stop working after a short while because it relies on some loophole.
And then, one day, it all came together for me and suddenly made complete sense. I’ve found a way of earning my living online through a profitable, sustainable and scalable business model.
Why Would You Share “Your Secret” With The World?
I would be very skeptical myself, so that’s a fair question. My answer is split into three parts:
First, truth to be told: The make money online niche is extremely
Your “average guru” is not going to tell you that he’s making way more money from selling you courses and tools than putting his own advice into practice.
Many of these “gurus” live only in the make money online niche, and they are exclusively in the business of selling theoretical knowledge and overpriced tools. You don’t need any of that to make money online.
For the most part, they don’t put their own advice into practice and don’t use their recommended tools. It’s just shady.
Of course, the same guru happily serves every couple of weeks a new, super easy, no-work-involved, “get rich quick” make money online method to everyone who’s looking for the next shiny object.
Secondly, and as you can hear from my tone, I just can’t stand the average guru in the make money online world. They are shady, they are greedy, and without moral standards. So I feel obligated to put out the truth and help as many people as I can so they don’t fall for the scam.
And thirdly, I simply enjoy documenting my findings and processes along the way.
Now it’s your turn
Quite the opposite: The fundamentals of how to build a business, how to generate profits and the basics of making money online will remain the same for the most part.
Actually, once you get the whole picture, there’s just a handful of things that you really need to focus on.
Please see this website as the advice I’d give my own children if they wanted to create a life of freedom for themselves and make an independent living online. And not lose as much time in the process as I did.
