Online Entrepreneur

Over 6,700 unique students from 136 different countries are studying my courses.

I have been an online entrepreneur since 2010 using various methods of earning money online. I have multiple YouTube channels, tried working with affiliate marketing, consultant on Internet, Forex, selling e-books and an online teacher on Udemy. I love to share my own experiences both from my entrepreneur life and also when I was working in one of the largest corporations in the world (see my CV below).


YouTube: Over 7 million viewers on my main channel, increasing by 200,000 viewers per month. I have several other channels, which are training related.


I started teaching on Udemy in October 2014 and I have gained over 2,200 unique students. I am enjoying teaching and very passionate about helping people solve their problems, grow their business and improve their lives. I can proudly say that I have helped people across the 6 different continents.

My CV:

I finished my BSc Business and Management in one of the top UK universities with a first class degree. After getting the degree, I worked in one of the major corporation that is in Fortune 500 - General Motors. Hence, I am familiar to the corporate culture and the daily life of working in major corporations.

While working for the corporation I have come across many different people that I had to work with. I have also had the opportunity to attend many different business trips in various countries with different cultures, which has allowed me to understand how differently business operations are carried out in different countries.

Right now I work online as an entrepreneur, which has been mentioned before.
