In 2014 I spent almost 6 months traveling around Europe. In June of the same year I was looking for the best way to get from Poland to Ukraine. The two countries share a border and there are numerous way to get from one country to another so I started looking evaluating my options. Whenever I did a search on that particular route I kept stumbling upon the same website: Ukraine Travel Secrets.
Since I am an online marketer and I do my fair share of search engine optimization I couldn’t help but wonder who was behind that website. The site wasn’t government owned but it ranked #1 for most keyword phrases, mostly because it had loads of great, helpful and unique content. After a while I figured out the site was owned by Orest Zub, an online entrepreneur from Lviv, Ukraine. Further research showed that Orest also ran OpenMind.com.ua – a popular blog about travel, lifestyle and entrepreneurship. Unfortunately for most of my readers this website is in Ukrainian, however you can use Google Translate to get a basic idea: the content is pretty great.
So I’ve decided to meet the guy who traveled to over 50 countries while managing and growing these websites. Meeting Orest was also the reason why I decided to make Lviv my first stop in Ukraine, instead of the capital city of Kyiv. We met up at a really cool cafe/restaurant and I tried to record an interview with Orest, so he could share his experiences, tips and strategies. Unfortunately that didn’t work out too well as the place was poorly lit and you can hardly make out the faces on the video. There were also little kids running around the restaurant and creating a bit of a chaos, as well as their grandmothers screaming at them. You got it, you can’t hear much of that interview either.
Fast-forward 5 months. I found out that Orest was coming to North America in October and Montreal was one of his planned stops. I invited Orest to stay at my place for his visit so I could show him the city, explain a few things about our life in the Eastern part of Canada and simply hangout. This is when we also got a second chance for that interview.
Finally the interview is online and I’d love to share it with you. In this video we cover a lot of things such as:
- How to get started with online business
- How to find a proper niche for an online business
- How long it takes to start earning money online
- Why you should provide loads of great value for free before asking for money
- Why you don’t need to live in the USA in order to make money online
- How to manage your online business while visiting 50+ countries
- How to get motivated through the times when you feel like giving up
- What are the hardest things about starting your own online business
- How to achieve your targeted results
… and a lot more!
The video is almost 30 minutes long so get comfortable and enjoy the show!
