Hi I’m Mike Vandergraaf, Online Marketer, Martial Artist & Breathwork teacher, always trying to perfect the subtle art of 'Cut the Crap' marketing... not necessarily all in that order.

I live in Rotterdam, the Netherlands with my 2 kids and girlfriend, in an old house build on a dyke from 1898 with 3 floors.

A nice garden with two garden sheds in it and plenty room to bbq in and eat outside during summers

And although the house is old, it's cosy and has plenty of room.

I'm a BIG believer in living my own life, not having anyone telling me what or how to do things (except my kids of course, who have me running around to do their bidding.....lazy bastards.. :)

That's my house on the right on a picture taken in the 1930's

I work from home, and although I also teach martial arts and breathwork in my own school, I am mostly working on my online business (breathwork/meditation courses and internet marketing).

The people in my neighborhood and parents at my kids school probably think I'm some kind of drugdealer or something.

Always there take them to school and pick them up again. Being at home all the time... having plenty of time to do stuff when others are slaving away in their boring 9-5 jobs.

I drive a nice car, nothing fancy, a dull Toyota hybrid, but big enough for us to get around and pack some bags to go on holiday every so often.

But that wasn't always the case.

I used to have a 9 to 5 job...

​Well, actually it was more of a 7 to whenever work was done kinda job...

I made long days, being away from my family a lot...

The money was great, but that was all that was great about it...

It was boring...tedious, mindfucking work that left me drained

The long days didn't improve my health either...

And in the end... it all blew up in my face...

It got so bad... (I'll spare you the details) that I had to turn my life around

Enter...online marketing...

Bored Yet?...

Well.... I'm trying to make a point...

You see... I'm now living my life like I want to... and my guess is... You are trying the same...

Running a profitable online business is NOT about the flashy cars...speedboats...multi million dollar villas and rockin-it like some kind of rockstar... (although it can be if YOU want to) you see in those SCAM-ADS for the next big thing to earn money...

It's about living life on your terms...

YOUR REAL LIFE...

For me...it's not about fast cars and shiny objects...

It's about being there for my kids...

Having the freedom to do what I want to do and when I want it...

Not having to deal with bossholes at work for someone else...

Internet Marketing gives you the opportunity to live the life you really want... not what others expect of you...

And if that's buying that fancy sportcar... that's okay too...

That...is actual freedom.....

And for most...that's just a pipe dream.

But all it really takes, to get real freedom...

Is to replace your salary...

That is the price of your freedom.

Because if you take that step.

There's no stopping you...

You don't need to make a $100,000 to start...

You just need to replace your current salary...

And that's it...

And the way you live your life after that is entirely up to you...

What others might think...?

Well I don't give a flying crap, and neither should you...

Because you've only got one life and you better live it they way you REALLY want.

There are no guarantees in life and if you really want something you better take charge yourself and take massive action...

And that's basically really all their is to it...

Well...

there is more... especially if your going the online marketing route...

Now, this stuff isn't rocket science, but we humans (I'm assuming you are one of us) tend to overthink everything we do :)

That's why I'm a diligent student of what I call 'Cut The Crap' marketing. 

Cutting out all crap and fluff to get a lean mean marketing setup that just simply works.

Now, If you would like to hear more from me... just send your email and I'll keep you updated on how I do things.
