♦ About me
I’m Morten Storgaard, 39 years old and lucky to have a wonderful wife and a cool little toddler named Max.
In 2007, I started an e-commerce site and quickly hired people for anything else than SEO and online marketing.
After three years, I went full-time as SEO consultant while I started to build my own portfolio of passive income sites.

Now it’s time to share what I’ve learned with you guys!
My main motivation for going after PASSIVE income is to be able to spend most days with Max and Maria.
