Why I Created This Website And What The Future Holds…


Welcome to my first official post on EntrepreneurIgnited.com.

I know there are other posts on the website, quite a few in fact, but those were simply imported over from my old blog at DerekGehl.com which I’ve converted in to a static website as I laser focus my attention and efforts on this one.

So why did I create this site?

To fill a need; a void I see in the marketplace.

There are already lots of great websites that offer tons of great support, training, information, and tools for more advanced people that already have established businesses on the Internet.

Then there are countless websites that are offering the latest get-rich-quick BS, preying on the desire and desperation of people that would LIKE to have an Internet business but haven’t yet successfully made the leap from employee to entrepreneur (Please note: These websites piss me off).

And finally there are tons of fluffy, inspirational websites encouraging you to “chase your dreams” and “never give up”.

But there actually aren’t that many websites that offer real, practical, proven advice and strategies to aspiring entrepreneurs.

I’m talking about the people that are tired of trading time for money and are willing to put in the time and effort to create something real on the Internet but need solid, practical guidance to get them started.

So if you are looking for get-rich-quick, close your browser now because EntrepreneurIgnited.com is NOT for you.

On the other hand, if you’re committed to learning how to start a real business on the Internet and are willing put in the effort required then you’re in the right place.

You do NOT need an MBA or programming skills to use what I will share with you here.

All you need is the right attitude… an attitude founded on commitment and determination to make a change in your life.

Being an entrepreneur has a ton of upsides (especially online) but starting a business, any business, takes grit and determination. Especially if you already have a job and want to do this in your spare time.

And if anyone tells you otherwise they are full of ‘it’.

But here’s the good news…

If you are truly sick of the rat race and want real freedom, and I’m not just talking about financially but the freedom to live life on your own terms, by building a business that allows you to work where and when you want, I have some great news… EntrepreneurIgnited.com can help.

The Internet has changed the game and hundreds of thousands of people have already cracked the code and are now making more money than they ever dreamed possible while living life on their own terms.

And that is what this is all about…

It is about demystifying Internet business for average, ordinary people.

It’s about giving people without any past business experience, any fancy education or special technical skills a fighting chance… a chance to make real money on the Internet by starting real businesses that sell real products to real people.

I know this sounds like a pretty bold claim and if I told you I have a detailed road map of everything I am going to do for the next ten years to make EnrepreneurIgnited.com awesome I would be lying.

The Internet changes too damn fast to look that far out anyway.

But what I can tell you is this…

Over the past 16 years I’ve started, grown, sold and consulted with countless 6, 7, and 8 figure Internet businesses and through that process I’ve learned a lot.

I don’t have a fancy education, but collectively the companies I’ve led have generated well over $100,000,000 in sales online and this number does not include the sales generated from the thousands of people that have started and grown successful Internet businesses after attending one of my events or using my online training.

So I guess you could say I’ve picked up a few useful tips and strategies along the way and I intend to share them with you.

I’ve also had the privilege of connecting with hundreds of successful online entrepreneurs and industry leaders and I want to connect you to these amazing people so you can learn from them as well.

Whether it be through a podcast, a video on YouTube, a post on this blog, a live webinar or even a live event, my ultimate goal is to simplify online business so you can make money online. Period.

And it begins now…

Now let’s get started…
