Welcome to the Self Funded Life blog…

Hey everybody… short post here to get started. I have been thinking about doing a free blog to help people who want to start a business of their own – and break free from working at a “regular job”.

I wanted to see if anybody would actually be interested in this and want me to do it.  The idea here is to show you guys how I make money online with little websites that add up to enough for our family to make a living and me not have to wear a suit everyday :)

I’m not gonna tell you that you will make it rich… I’m not rich. But I do make my living off of passive income created on the internet… And I am here to tell you that you can make a living for you and your family doing something you love – and even have some free time to do something you like.

The premise will be that we will start at the beginning and just go through it together, what tools I use and any other things that come to mind.

Just a word of caution here though… it is hard work. People who say you can get rich on the internet without any work are pulling your leg. It is hard work – but it is very possible and can change your life.

So, if this sounds good to you and you want to jump on board with me, let me know by leaving me a comment below! I look forward to talking to everyone :)

Step 1: Join the Private Self Funded Life Group on Facebook here: Self Funded Life Group

Step 2: Leave me a comment introducing yourself to me and the group!

Thanks everybody! Also make sure to like our facebook page (it’s new) so that we can interact in real time!


Collin Sawyers April 30, 2012 at 8:52 am

Sounds very positive. I would like to learn more. Thanks for your willing to teach.


Diana Smith April 27, 2012 at 3:25 pm

I am very interested…count me in and keep me updated on your steps..thank you! :)


Michelle April 25, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Yes! Please


Karine April 24, 2012 at 7:09 pm

Hello! I am 24 with a dead end job! I have a little boy soon to be 2! I would love to hear more! Thank you!


Kevin April 24, 2012 at 9:39 pm

Hey Karine! Welcome to the Self Funded Life. Lots of content will be going up in the next few weeks – keep checking in and you will get lots of great ideas on how to get started :)


Kevin April 23, 2012 at 3:30 pm

@ Laurice It is possible. It takes either money or time. If you have the time to put into it, then you can certainly do it.

@Charlie This isn’t get rich quick… its more like get free slow. While some people get rich doing internet marketing, my goal was always more about being free and having the ability to spend my time doing things that matter to me. Like hanging out with my kids.

So, welcome aboard and I hope you both are able to get free slow!


Charley April 23, 2012 at 2:47 pm

This sounds like something I would really be interested in doing. I hope I’ll be able to learn a little about making money. Forget the “get rich quick” schemes; i would just like to make some supplemental income while having some fun.


Laurice April 23, 2012 at 12:46 pm

I’m interested, but is this even possible to make money from a blog without any income.


Kevin April 23, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Hey Hans and Sondra… welcome! Just put up a new post – check it out… It gives a basic outline of the landscape of internet marketing. Look forward to having you around the blog and on our facebook page!


Sondra April 23, 2012 at 12:00 am

Sounds good in general, need more details and if your for real, you are doing something so wonderful for so many people. : ) I hope I can do the same somehow!
Lets Hear It! : )


Hans April 22, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Hello, this sound so exciting and can not wait to hear what will change my life. I do have a business dream but do not have the terms for it to come together, I’m seriously looking for help and encouragement.


Kevin April 22, 2012 at 9:34 am

@Lou welcome… Details coming soon!
@Al… Welcome aboard!

@Lauri… There is a nice feeling knowing that you can control your own fate and that there isn’t a butt that you need to kiss. It is very fulfilling when you are working hard- for yourself!


LAURI April 22, 2012 at 8:45 am

This is very interesting and just what I’ve been looking for. I’ve never blogged before but have always been a risk taker and willing to try something new. Having instruction and guidance is a much wiser approach to a job change or an additional method of supporting yourself. I have always worked, so the “hard work” part you mentioned is not new to me. What is most intriguing is the idea of “No Suit”, no more job interviews and the daily grind of a very stressful job at minimal pay. I’m in!!!!!


al white April 22, 2012 at 5:03 am

Sounds good.


Lou April 22, 2012 at 3:02 am

I am interested in learning more Kevin! Thanks!


Kevin April 21, 2012 at 11:49 pm

@ Bruce… Welcome!

@Lynn… Typing and thinking is all that is required! And I think that you might have a leg up on a lot of people these days… :)

@Scott… Welcome aboard! The only thing you have to pay for is your domain and hosting – which you probably already have if you have been trying to start a web business already. So, welcome and I look forward to seeing you around the blog :)


Scott April 21, 2012 at 9:05 pm

This sounds great, I have already spent tons of money on other programs and nothing seems to work. At this point I have no more money to invest so if you can help me make a living on line without buying anything more i am all for it. Thanks.


Lynn Groves April 21, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Hi Kevin,
I had a stroke a few years ago and while I’m unable to do a lot of things, I am still able to type and think. I’m excited about your blog.


Bruce April 21, 2012 at 10:05 am

Sounds new and something new to learn. Looking forward to hearing more.


Pam April 21, 2012 at 9:12 am

I think this blog will be GREAT!!! This is what I want to do… I want to start a business management services business. I can take care of the budget, events, organization, computer training, and events… Just having a hard time getting started…


Kevin April 21, 2012 at 9:18 am

Thanks Pam… we will certainly talk a lot about creating and marketing of your own businesses too. Welcome aboard and I look forward to seeing you around here and getting to know you!


Angelo April 21, 2012 at 8:56 am

kevin, this sounds too good to be true.


Kevin April 21, 2012 at 9:00 am

Hey Angelo… Its not. I am not telling you that you will be the next internet millionaire but you can certainly make a great living online. I am just going to show you how I do it – and I will show you the things I am testing for my own business so that you can try it too if you want to…


Kevin April 21, 2012 at 8:25 am

Welcome DJ and Ed… I am gonna get this thing rolling soon. Writing the first long blog post now and hope to have it up directly :)


Ed April 21, 2012 at 7:47 am

Sounds good. Where do we start…


DJ April 21, 2012 at 3:45 am

When do we start? I too am interested. The job market is just not returning emails and phone calls fast enough.


earn money online April 21, 2012 at 12:59 am

Just want to say your article is as amazing. The clarity in your publish is simply nice and that i can think you are knowledgeable in this subject. Well together with your permission allow me to clutch your RSS feed to keep updated with coming near near post. Thank you a million and please continue the enjoyable work.


AndrijahN450 April 21, 2012 at 12:27 am

Excluse me for this generic question.
I would like to purchase advertising for my video slots site, what are all the alternatives offered for putting my web-site textlink here? Please contact me with detailed possibilities and weekly quote.



Kevin April 21, 2012 at 8:29 am

Sorry Andrijah… I am not going to sell advertising on this site. I do have lots of other websites that I sell ads on – some that would fit your site perfectly. So, if you are interested in buying adspace on one of the other sites, let me know and I can send you a list of them and we can talk terms.


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Hey Pasquale… Unless you already have some experience I would say wait a bit until you have learned a little bit more. I dont want you to waste money on a domain that you might end up not wanting in the end :)

But we will get to it soon! Look forward to having you here…



pasquale April 20, 2012 at 8:49 pm

Should I start building my website? How?


Quail April 20, 2012 at 7:53 pm

no website. Years of learning the stuff, or pretending to have learned it, as in the end there is no skill, no ability and no success. My fingers are crossed…


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 8:03 pm

Hey Quail. Well, I can tell you for sure that if you are willing to do the work, that this will succeed. Just stick around and you will have a different tale to tell I think. Don’t get discouraged. You can do this – I am telling you that I know people who are doing well online who had no skills to speak of – so it is possible for everybody.


jan crump April 20, 2012 at 7:39 pm

i’m excited cant wait to learn more!


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Thanks Jan!


john April 20, 2012 at 7:38 pm

Hi Kevin,
This sounds awesome. Everyone can use some help and things are so hard right now that I think you will get more people reading this than you might have thought. I look forward to reading all of the information you will be putting on here. Let me say thank you in advance.


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Hey John… You are welcome and I hope that I can get the stuff in my head onto the page in a way that helps people. That’s the big challenge for me – is trying to figure out where to start and where to stop!!! My goal here is to make this useful (and easy to understand I hope). So, welcome and I look forward to seeing you around here!


mike April 20, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Hi Kevin – I appreciate your purpose. In the recent past i’ve owned my own retail sign business for 15 years. Sold it a few years back. Since I have been looking for a decent paying job for a while but haven’t had much luck… even though I have a job that I like, it doesn’t pay enough.
I’d be very interested in learning how to make a better living with your internet training program.


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 7:56 pm

Thanks Mike and welcome! My father owned a sign business in SC for several years. I look forward to having you around here. I will be getting things going quickly and putting out some posts that explain the basics of internet business. So, look for a new blog post in the next day or so…



Ashley April 20, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Youve got my curiosity going…..


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 6:39 pm

That’s good Ashley! Curiosity is a good thing and will help you along the journey to success with this for sure.


Stan Erickson April 20, 2012 at 1:32 pm

We have a business that needs some direction. I hope you can share some things that will help us to the next step.


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Hey Stan,

What is the business? I will take a look at it – just post a link here and we can discuss.



Kyle April 20, 2012 at 12:49 pm

This sounds great Kevin. I have tried some of those get rich schemes and of course none of them worked for me. I’m looking forward to reading and learning from your blog. Thank you for doing this for us and not being greedy and trying to get rich off of everyone else. You sound like a real standup guy and can’t wait for you to start your teaching.


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Thanks Kyle, and welcome to the site. And thanks for the compliment too – I look forward to making this place a cool resource for people who want to get started (or move further) and there is plenty of room for everybody to do well.

I think that by helping each other that we will all be better off and the money always comes to you when you are helping people.

Ultimately the only mistake that I think we make is to rely on some big company or government to take care of us.

Look forward to seeing you around here and to getting to know you.


Mike April 20, 2012 at 12:24 pm

Kevin, sounds great. Lets get started.


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Hey Mike… welcome! I will be sending out the first blog post tomorrow – so look for it in your email…


carter April 20, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Im interested tell me more!


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Hey Carter… welcome! First blog post coming shortly :)


Kiersten April 20, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Hello Kevin,
I’m no website guru or anything like that. I’m just a 22 year old trying to make it in the real world. I’m tired of constantly looking for a job and never hearing back from anyone. It would be great if you could help someone like me with your tools and skills to get me on my feet again. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 12:14 pm


You are the exact person that I am making this blog for… and I hope that it helps you do exactly that – get on your feet and stand strong on your own so that you dont have to worry about a job that someone else has created. You will be the one creating jobs!

Looking forward to seeing you around here!

To your success,


Tim April 20, 2012 at 12:03 pm


This sound great! Can’t wait to read more!



Kevin April 20, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Hey Tim,

Welcome! I will get the first blog post up soon :)


Jimbo April 20, 2012 at 11:35 am

What is this? Is this real?


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 11:53 am

Hey Jimbo!

What I want to do is create the most helpful site online for people trying to figure out this whole internet business thing. There are sooo many ways to try to do it and a lot of bad information out there by people who just want to get into your wallet. This site is not about that. This site is about making money, having fun and breaking free from the corporate leash. And it will be 100% free content. I am glad to have you here – feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to help you on your journey as well.



Keith April 20, 2012 at 11:00 am

Hello Kevin
I think you have a good idea brewing and would like to know more about it. I have made some money online and would love to learn more ways. Look forward to your blog.

Thanks again
Keith Cardell


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 11:50 am

Hey Keith… Thanks! I am excited about this too.

I want to make this a sort of growing project but the idea is that I am gonna just try to help people make enough money to have the choice whether they want to “work for the man” or not :) Thankfully I have been able to do this for myself for a long time – and I think most other people would like it too!
So, welcome aboard and I look forward to getting to know you :)


Heather April 20, 2012 at 10:38 am

Hi Kevin,

I really like your idea of a blog. I want to start one myself too, but I don’t know where to begin or even know how I would make a living from it. I’m excited to take the journey with you. Please provide your readers with easy steps and tools as I find the internet very intimidating – still trying to figure out how it all works.


Kimberly April 20, 2012 at 9:52 am

This sounds great. What are you going to teach? I have been trying to get a web business going for a while now and haven’t had much success. I hope that this will help me finally break through. Excited!


Kevin April 20, 2012 at 9:56 am

Welcome Kimberly! You are the first comment :) I am excited too as I think this is going to be a great experience for everybody. As for what I plan to teach, my thought right now is to just explain what I do and show how it works and then answer people’s questions as they have them. So, I want this to be a very active back and forth between me and the readers. Again, welcome and I am excited to have you here!
