Watch it Now
We started Kicktastic back in June of 2012 to provide high-quality video training and help people create more profitable businesses.
We also wanted to transition out of full-time client work. Visions of making mad money while sipping frosty beverages by the pool danced in our heads.
But along the way we realized that the part we liked the most was helping people!
“If a man knows not what harbor he seeks, any wind is the right wind.”

When we polled Kicktastic members awhile back, a good number of them confided that they needed help deciding what to do next.
Sometimes success can lead to inertia: “If it's not broken, why fix it?” Sometimes failure can paralyze us: “Remember what happened last time? We can't take afford another big loss like that."
So we wait. We hedge our bets. We strategize.
And the Christmas lights strung up in the rooms of our hearts go out, strand by strand.
If you've ever been at a loss as to how to meet your goals, then maybe you can learn a thing or two from Darren Rowse of Problogger.
Darren and his wife had just welcomed their first child into the world.
Those of you who have children of your own will remember being jarred awake by those impossibly loud cries. You remember trying to comfort your child through gritted teeth, stumbling around bleary-eyed while mixing a bottle of formula, and waking up in the morning already bone-tired and out of patience.
Darren managed several popular blogs, and many of his loyal readers had been asking for him to write a short ebook. He had a hungry crowd, and he had a baby. Could he give both what they wanted?
In those early months, making the time for creative pursuits meant getting even less sleep. Darren had every excuse to not write the ebook, but he decided to start anyway and give just 15 minutes a day to writing.
