Interview with Morten Tadolder of PassiveIncome4Life

Today I am presenting another written interview with Morten Tadolder of passiveincome4life.netmorten

Check out the interview:

1. What got you interested in building a business outside of your 9-5? Share your story.

The main reason why i wanted out of the 9-5 is that i started thinking – what happens to me in about 5 years from today if i keep doing the same job i do today. And what i didn’t like is that nothing happens, nothing changes. I’ll do the same job and hope that something will change. I started looking for options what to do, do not be in the same place in 5 years. Of course I didn’t find Lyoness at first, i could say, i got involved with it by accident. Pretty good accident I think today.

2. Tell us about Lyoness, how does this program differ from your typical “MLM or Network Marketing” company?

Lyoness today is biggest growing shopping network in the world. Basically Lyoness has created a global network from which Members and Loyalty Merchants can benefit: Members receive money back, while Loyalty Merchants gain loyal customers and provide them with special benefits. Win-win situation. How it differs from typical MLM is that there is no product to sell. The main product is cashback card and for new users it’s free. It will always be free. Your job is to show people that they can save from their everyday shopping using this card. Be a messenger not a salesman. Help the blind people see as we like to say. The other difference is how the money cycles. Typical MLM somebody has to buy some product to keep upline earning. And if(when, would be even better word) they stop buying/using this product, there’s no more profit. With Lyoness the money comes from shopping, which everybody has to do every day and this is generated by – directing card users to loyalty merchands. Nobody loses money. Only one’s who lose money are the merchands who are not Lyoness loyalty merchands, because they lose their customers to Lyoness merchands.

3. You mentioned in your bio you were never interested in MLM or anything similar, what made you decide to jump on this opportunity?

As i mentioned in my blog, yes. I’m not into MLM because I don’t like the concept of trying to sell things to people they really don’t want and also trying to hire them to do the same. This system is made to collapse at some point. With Lyoness it’s a whole other story. It’s made to last. What intrigues me most is that I don’t have to do it for the rest of my life. It’s only short period to spread the card around the world and give it out to people who actually want this. This is a snowball effect, the more card users around the world the faster these cards are spread. Now what’s here not to like. Today, as my own experience, what makes it hard is that people don’t believe it’s possible. Well it is, and I saw it. I saw that with Lyoness i can make the change in my life i’ve been waiting for.

4. What are some tips you can provide for how you have been able to successfully recommend others to Lyoness?

Well it’s actually easy if You understand what people are afraid of. You have to make them understand that You are not trying to sell them anything and You’re not trying to trick them to do something they dont want to. There’s a lot of MLM been around the world and people relate Lyoness to it. The minute they understand it, it goes easy. Of course as with most of businesses, it takes a lot of personal approach. So You can’t sit on the street and yell to everybody to start using lyoness cashback card.

5. What are your future plans for 2014 and beyond?

It’s been calculated that Estonias market will be done for Lyoness by the end on next year (2015) So there’s nothing to do here more. Plan is to be a part of Lyoness growing in other countries for about 5 years ( If there’s still anything to do) Anyhow I’m hoping to travel a lot and give my aknowledge to others where Lyoness is not growing so rapidly. There’s a lot to do here also, but I start spreading the world already (that’s why I’m doing this interview) so I’m hoping to have activity after Estonias market is done.

Thank You for this interview. To conclude I’d like to wish all the people out there to be a more open-minded and never let you hopes and dreams drown. The ship hasn’t saled yet. Good luck to everybody!

Written Interviews

Interview with Aurelius Tjin of

Today I am presenting another written interview with Aurelius Tjin from Sydney, Australia.aureliustjin

Aurelius has been an online entrepreneur since 2005 and has created over 100 products and written dozens of blog posts to help entrepreneurs alike to get more results in their online business.

Check out the interview:

  1. What got you introduced to world of online marketing? Share your story.

I started on eBay selling unwanted goods, just as a lot of us do. I realized that this was something I enjoyed doing. I dabbled around other things like network marketing, but just wasn’t for me.

I then found out about “resell rights” where I was able to resell a product for profit. I also went into affiliate marketing.

My business didn’t really take off until I started building a list of subscribers.

  1. Being a fan of passive income, what are some of your favorite income methods that are working for you today online?

My number one asset would be my list of subscribers. When everything goes down, you’ll always have your list. Take this as an example – You could have a site ranking on the first page one day and then Google decides to change their algorithms and overnight your site will disappear. Not a good strategy in my opinion. Whereas if you had built a list of subscribers, you could email and follow-up on them any time.

Whenever I have a new blog post or product out, I always make my email list my first point of contact. I then reach out to social platforms like Facebook and Google+.

  1. Of all the courses, products and content you have produced, what has been your biggest accomplishment?

Definitely my blog at It’s my hub where I’m free to share my thoughts, ideas, stories, news and a place to connect with my audience.

Products are great to have, but nowadays you need to build that trust first before they even consider buying your product.

  1. How have you gone about marketing your blog and products? What’s working for you?

Definitely through my email list. Apart from that, I invest a lot into Facebook Ads to advertise my posts. Since Facebook introduced Ads, only 10-15% of your posts will ever be seen by your fans, so advertising your posts is a must nowadays. Those who actually advertise will have the upper-hand.

I also regularly visit and contribute to forums related to Internet marketing, predominantly the Warrior Forum.

  1. What are your future plans for 2014 and beyond?

I’m at a point where I’m building a team to help grow my business. I’d like to reach a point where I have an office based in the Philippines for my future team to work at and get some creative juices flowing.

I’ll be continuing with blogging as I believe heavily in sharing content. My mission is to share and help as much as possible in this industry, and that’s what I’ll stand by for years to come.


Learning From Pat Flynn of – Ep.12

I had the honor of being able to interview Pat Flynn who runs the blog

Pat has been doing some amazing things in the blogging community in terms of affiliate marketing and niche websites. I was super pumped and nervous to do this interview because I actually considered Pat to be the #1 person I wanted to interview out of all the people I have been following online. I find him to be a huge inspiration as someone who has been very successful online and has built a huge community for himself.

I actually decided a few months ago to download about 65~ of his Podcast episodes dating back to 2010. I listened to about 1-2 Podcast episodes a day during my commute to and from work. I actually completely stopped listening to music during this time which was a big deal for me. I actually am a raving metal fan and run this site in my free time so this was sort of a “sacrifice” for me. I listened to all the episodes in about 7-8 weeks.

Pat also has a series of Podcasting tutorials and this is what helped me launched my own Podcast, go check out the podcasting tutorial.

I can tell you right now, if you have not listened to Pat’s podcast than you are missing out big time! I would honestly PAY to hear some of the content he shares for FREE!

Checkout the SmartPassiveIncome Podcast on iTunes!

In our interview I tried to ask a lot of unique questions based on topics I never heard him get into a whole lot after listening to the majority of his Podcast episodes.

If you would like to learn more about Pat I highly recommend checking out his book Let Go on Amazon. It’s only $3.. just grab it!
