I love it when I come across inspirational figures that have made it big by successfully working online. The man I will be covering today decided to use poker to earn money teaching online.
His story is a fascinating one…
Back in 2011 Primoz Bozic was earning approximately $6 an hour through a computer programming job. At the time he was still at university.
He was still living in his homeland of Slovenia and he felt he could achieve much more in life if he found the right niche.
He discovered two books that are based on productivity and habit change and he made his way through them taking notes as he went. He was impressed by the subject matter the books provided and decided to take on board the information they offered:
- I Will Teach You to be Rich ( by Ramit Sethi )
- The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People ( by Stephen R. Covey )
After a few weeks of devouring the information these books provided he decided to sign up for an online earning tutorials provided by Earn 1K.
This training is designed to help newbie online workers earn their first grand online.
Leaving The Competition Behind
Within weeks he realized that he was overtaking his co-workers by implementing the techniques the books and the course had provided him with.
He went from being a reasonably unhappy worker to a worker that people looked up to – if you wanted help with something you went to Bozic!
He still felt trapped in his job overall and had always had a desire to travel the world and broaden his horizons. He started branching out…
Earn Money Teaching Online
In the past Bozic had tried to earn money playing poker and he was familiar with how the system worked. He decided to write a post on the subject and leave it on a related online forum.
The article was based on honing your productivity with online poker and was over 27,000 words long.
People absolutely loved it and before long it was translated into several different languages. He was steadily growing into an expert in this niche because of this one, single article!
Over the next few months he was constantly contacted by people wanting more information after reading the article so he decided to start charging them. His price was $50 an hour as a productivity coach for poker players.
Over the next few weeks he steadily started raising his price and people did start to notice – but the customers still kept coming and coming.
When he reached $125 an hour the whole process sort of leveled off and he got stuck – his project would not move any further forward.
He decided to attend a conference run by the guy who owned the Earn 1K course he had attended – Ramit Sethi.
Within a month of attending this conference his online business had doubled. Within three months, it quintupled. Before long he had raised enough money to start up a new online business called Skyrocket Your Productivity which was launched in December 2013.
The New Direction
Over the next few months Bozic moved slowly away from the ‘earn money playing poker’ niche and started to concentrate more on his new venture.
Skyrocket Your Productivity offers tutorials to entrepreneurs and helps them be as productive as possible.
This website is currently earning him approximately $400 an hour…
