Hi, welcome! My name is Josh Monen and this is my online home.

Someday I’ll get around to writing a full bio but here’s my story in a nutshell:

  • I used to have a $500/day cocaine addiction.
  • After completing a $28,000 rehab program I relapsed twice.
  • I asked Jesus to save me while praying on a bathroom floor. He did and I’ve been clean since.
  • I started selling insurance instead of cocaine (not as profitable but a little less risky).
  • In 2009 I married my best friend, Lacie Joy. 🙂
  • After 4 years of selling insurance I quit to become a freelance copywriter.
  • We had 3 kids in 4 years after I quit my job and started working from home.
  • After 5 years of working as a freelancer I decided to become an entrepreneur…
  • …that’s where I find myself today (2017)!
