119 ~ Conquering Health and Business by Controlling Your Environment

August 30, 2016

Today listeners, we are privileged today to have a very special guest named Rus Hughes on our show.

Rus, is a systems architect. He has been working online since 2002 and been an entrepreneur since 2012. His background is in development and systems administration. During his career, he has worked with small startups and large enterprises to develop, scale and maintain various styles of web, data and telecoms applications used by schools, hospitals banks and governments. Since 2014 he’s also been selling physical products on Amazon.com.

Recently he’s entwined his love of systems and Amazon knowledge to create Amazooka.com, a SaaS to help Amazon sellers understand their customers more and sell more products.

Here is what I love about Rus….

He is humble, unassuming and incredibly generous. I have seen Rus in action and can tell you point blank that he is more concerned with creating products that add value and truly helping people than he is about making money. He has a high level of integrity, works hard when he needs to and delegates as much as possible. He is a master analyzer, and can take one look at what you're doing with your business, give some quick advice that can catapult sales, and skyrocket your conversion rates. He has an incredible track record of working online including creating a 6-figure business in less than a year. Rus has one of the most incredible and exciting stories of anyone that has stayed in The Entrepreneur House that he shares that with us in this episode.

117 ~ Two Childhood Best Friends Building an International 6-Figure Location Independent Business

117 ~ Two Childhood Best Friends Building an International 6-Figure Location Independent Business

August 15, 2016

Erik Paquet and A.J. Dunn from Abroaders.com tell about their journey from childhood best friends to building an international six-figure company and about their recent angel investment. It is an incredible story of two guys making their way in the business world and how The Entrepreneur House was a part of that journey.

Abroaders is a premier concierge service that helps people save enormous amounts of money by using frequent flyer and award miles turning your regular spending into multiple free flights each year. If you have ever booked your own flights with frequent flyer miles you know how much time it can take and how much of a headache it can be….I can certainly vouch for this. They have a vast knowledge of airline alliances, routes, and experience booking elaborate travel itineraries with frequent flyer miles and award points. They are also international travel experts focusing on banking, credit cards, and location independent business tools.

Listen as A.J. and Erik give specific examples of how to hack the frequent flyer mile system and how they have been helping hundreds of clients travel for free.

Stay Tuned…..After the main show, we have a little ‘off the record’ chat about traveling the world and some of the best cities we have lived in. A.J. and Erik also give some great insight about the world’s largest party….Carnival in Brazil. From Rio de Janeiro, to Medellin, to Barcelona and Bangkok. These guys have experience living and building business all over the world and give some tips about how to have an incredible amount of fun along the way.
