My Family“I was about ready to give up…on several occasions.  It’s tough working a full time job during the day and then at night trying to split my time between family and my efforts to make a living online!”

Yup, that was me. I don’t know if you’ve ever felt frustrated with your day job, or just sick of plugging away online trying to make a little money or perhaps both, but I have.  For many, many years.

But, before we get to all that…here’s a little about me and this blog.  *Hint: this isn’t just another make money online blog.  My dream is for it to be way more than that for you!

If you haven’t guessed by now my name’s Tory McBroom.  I’m a midwesterner (Iowa represent!) with a lot to be thankful for –  A beautiful family, great friends, I’m healthy… and I earn a living online running my company, BroomBiz LLC internet properties, providing marketing and SEO services to everybody from large corporations in the food industry to local dentists, developing mobile applications, running authority/niche sites, as well as about a million other projects I seem to have going on at any given time. Phew!

The Allure Of A Passive Income

Earning a passive income online has always compelled me! I’ve been building, buying, optimizing and selling websites online since 2001! I spent many, many years chasing financial freedom through the internet and have learned through much trial and error how to enjoy the cut-throat business of making money online.

It wasn’t always easy, however! As I stated above it can be extremely tough trying to even earn a single dollar online.  In fact, I was probably two years into it before I even earned a dollar!  Two flippin’ years!!

And let me tell you, it takes a pretty supportive and understanding significant other to be able to put up with the amount of time I have invested in my efforts to be successful online.

So, Why Did I Start This Blog?

I  believe in paying it forward! And over the last decade or so I have developed relationships with others online who have helped me get to where I’m at today.  So, I want to finally help others reach their goals!

This blog is basically my personal notebook of what I’ve learned in the past, techniques that have proven beneficial, and it will be updated frequently as I continue to learn and grow.

The Gestalt Protocol

The gest-what proto-huh?  The Gestalt Protocol is a method in which you never give advice, but rather share your experiences. I don’t claim to be an expert or guru, but rather experienced.  Simply put, I’m here to share my experiences, experiments and even mistakes with YOU to help you reach your goals!

Why Is This Blog Different?

I told you this wasn’t your normal make money online blog.  In fact, I don’t really like “make money online” blogs so I don’t even want to be labeled as one. I digress….

First of all, this blog is ad FREE! It will never be plastered with advertisements with links to shady, expensive products.  Instead, I will only link to products within my posts that I have used and found beneficial and think that maybe you will gain something from them (I may use affiliate links at times, but rest assured only to products that I have used and highly recommend).

Secondly, there’s more to life than just making money.  And this is something I have fully embraced over the years.  There are things like health, traveling, and just plain having fun – all of which I will post about on this blog!

So, welcome to my blog, browse around and please contact me or leave a comment on one of the posts.  I would love to hear from you!

Take care!
