Does this sound like you, maybe in the past or even now? You quit and you start a business to create more freedom. And what ends up happening is you become a slave in your own business. Holy crap. Not good. That is exactly what happened to today’s guest, Chuck Rylant, until he did something about it. He decided to change his slave-like business into an online empire, deliver his services via products as opposed to one-on-one time, and move his entire family to the beach. Seriously. He shares all the gritty details today.

You should definitely tune in, because you’ll learn:

  • What Chuck did wrong when he started his business (and how he fixed it!).
  • How he turned his expertise into products.
  • Why he now takes a “backwards” approach to writing books.
  • His biggest mistake and what he learned from it (don’t make this one).
  • …and much more!


I use RISE partner Wistia for video hosting because they rock. Check ’em out.

Create Awesome Interviews Update!

Here’s a reminder, in case you missed the memo. I’ve opened my most popular training product back up – Create Awesome Interviews – which is my complete system for creating, promoting and profiting from online interviews. What it really is about is teaching you how to build your credibility, relationships, traffic, list etc by interviewing the influencers/thought leaders and rock stars in your niche.

Here is what Shelia Butler from had to say about the program:

“The course is applicable, inspirational, and worth every penny! David has a great, non-BS approach to his training which makes the implementation of his methods easy. If I needed brain surgery I would hire a great neurosurgeon – when I needed an interview coach…I basically hired David by joining Create Awesome Interviews.”

If you want to get in and this sounds up your alley, head over to to find out all the juicy details.

    Great interview.  Refreshing to hear from an internet marketer who is actually placing emphasis on advertising as a path toward passive income.  More of the successful internet marketing types are doing this than are willing to admit.  

    1. David Siteman Garland says:

      For sure, always good to know there are many paths 🙂

    2. Chuck Rylant says:

      Hi Josh. Thanks for the feedback. I agree that a lot of successful marketers, or any successful business owners for that matter, are using paid advertising that it appears on the outside. That said, it is the most difficult to make work, which is why I agree with David–many paths.

  2. Jason Ulsrud says:

    Loved the interview David…  Great Job.

    I’m working on launching my first product as well, so this hit the spot.  What I’m thinking for mine is to deliver a physical product with an up sell to a membership.  So I plan on offering both.

    Thanks buddy:-)

    1. David Siteman Garland says:

      Woohoo. Good luck with the product!! 

    2. Chuck Rylant says:

      Thanks for sharing. I appreciate the feedback. That sounds like a winning formula.
