I think I have a man crush on today’s guest, Michael Zenga. And I’m not just talking about our mutual obsession with Curb Your Enthusiasm and Larry David. Michael is an incredibly talented Internet marketer/entrepreneur/mediapreneur who has built an absolute empire online and is amazing at sharing what he is learned.

In this interview, Michael not only shares his story but explains what has worked for him and how you can implement it (including a walk through of his business/sales model and the upcoming site he is launching, which trust me – that in and of itself is worth listening to).

Also, Michael surprised me in the interview and mentioned that if you are a viewer of the show and are an expert in something looking to turn that expertise into a product, Michael can help. Email him right here.

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

About Today’s Guest, Michael Zenga:

Michael ZengaI feel like Michael brings such an interesting perspective to the Internet marketing/entrepreneurship/mediapreneurship game, proving there are MANY ways to be successful (and by the way, out of the hundreds of thousands of sellers on, Michael is in the top 100. How about them apples?). Meaning, he is more of a “behind-the-scenes” guys. You don’t see his face plastered on his sites and you don’t see him spending every waking moment on social media. There is a huge amount to be learned from his method with the hope that, of course, you find the methods that work for you and your goals/personality type.

While some “behind-the-scenes” Internet Marketers are super secretive about their sites and tactics, Michael is wide open and wanted to share the #1 converting site for him (feel free to steal his template, heh!): Michael also mentioned as being a critical component of his websites.
