Today, Brett is joined by the infamous Ryan McRae, the ADHD Nerd. Andrew is someplace. Ryan looked up Orthogonal! A great conversation ensues about how Brett and Ryan got started in online sales, their experiences and the weird feeling of people buying your stuff.

Things Discussed:

* Just sell the muffin.
* Some people still don't understand that you can make money on the internet
* Building a list is always a slow slog
* Balancing all the parts of an online business often resembles WORK
* "Get up and Hustle" sounds easy, but building routines in the real world is hard
* Buying back time is viable at almost any income level
* Make sure that you use the time you create!
