Episode 21: Paul Koks

Today for our 21st episode, we will talk with Paul Koks, Blogger at Online Metrics and a fellow entrepreneur based out of the Netherlands.

Paul and I have interacted since we both started our blogs within a few months of each other back in 2012. We finally met in person last month, and it was really great to hear that Paul had recently went out on his own to become a full time entrepreneur.

I thought it would be a fun perspective to hear from Paul about his decision to follow his passion, and hear his prognosis for the future.

It was exciting to hear Paul’s journey from blogging as a hobby to turning it into a business. It definitely reminds me of the exciting times I had starting my businesses in the past.

Also appreciated is how Paul offers a practical framework for how he plans to monetize his blog and where he sees opportunities. Pay attention, because I see Paul being a big success if he keeps it up.

And while you’re at it, check out Paul’s blog Online Metrics. Instead of reading a sponsor ad today, I’ll just tell you to visit his site.

Now it’s time to talk with Paul Koks.
