Internet Marketing and Outsourcing Expert

My name is John Jonas and I do Internet Marketing.

Somehow a few years ago I figured out how to make money online and that’s mostly how people know me.

More recently people know me as the guy to go to for how to replace themselves and live the 17-hour work week (yeah, similar to the 4-hour work week…but I’ve been there, and it gets boring after some time. 17 hours per week is much more realistic to me).

I’m all about working as little as I need to, spending time with my family, golfing, and helping others live the lifestyle I live. I’m all about building a business that bothers me the least (page 184 in 4hww)

I’m a big GTD proponent and have implemented much of what he talks about in my life.
