Frequently Asked Questions
To make it easier for my readers and audience, I put together this ever expanding frequently asked questions page (inspired by Derek Sivers).
Since 2013 I've answered 10,000's of emails from real people just like you. These are some of the most common questions (check back from time to time for more).
What are you focused on NOW?
Read my NOW page to find out more.
What resources and tools do you use and recommend?
Check out my resources page for all the details.
Are you active on social media?
Where in the world do you really live?
After leaving my home country Sweden behind late 2013, I've been fortunate enough to live in quite a few countries.
I'm currently a permanent resident of Panama which I'll keep for life (via the Friendly Nations Visa program... they unfortunately canceled it 2021 for some reason).
I'm also a resident of UAE as I have my business set up in Dubai.
As a global citizen and digital nomad, I like to spend a few months at a time in most places, so I don't consider just one place my "home" (but it might change in the future of course).
What happened to Virtual Summit Mastery?
After running Virtual Summit Mastery for 6+ years and 100's of successful students, I decided it was time to move on.
I was no longer passionate about running the program and wanted to put my focus on completely reinventing myself online and learning new skills. More about this in an upcoming blog post.
VSM is still well and alive, and the new owner Jan Koch will evolve and make things even better from here. I have no doubt there will be many more VSM success stories in the future.
Do you still recommend and believe in hosting virtual summits?
The short answer is yes. It's a fantastic low cost way to start, grow and scale your online business.
I was just not passionate about talking about summits all the time anymore. I will most likely host many more virtual events in the future :)
Do you currently offer any online courses or training?
No, after selling Virtual Summit Mastery, I needed a break to refocus and start over in a new direction.
I will most likely offer some kind of membership and courses in the future, but at a much lower price point than VSM to cater to a much larger audience.
Sign up for my free weekly newsletter to stay up to date on whenever I come out with something.
Can you coach or mentor me one-on-one?
I don't really offer any private coaching and mentorship anymore, but if you believe I can help you in some way, feel free to email me.
How did you find success online?
Check back here soon for an answer.
What's the best way to build my email list?
Check back here soon for an answer.
Will you promote my thing?
It depends, but most likely not unless I already use your product or service.
In case you're interested to know what resources and tools I recommend, be sure to check out my resources page here.
Can I use your article, video or podcast?
Yes, as long as you credit me with a link back to the original piece of content.
Will you be a guest on my podcast or YouTube channel?
If it's relevant and I'm excited about it, then yes (as long as I have time).
I really enjoy doing interviews and something I want to do more of.
Email me what you'd like cover.
Will you be a guest speaker on my virtual summit / virtual event?
Maybe. If it's high quality and relevant to what I'm currently doing, then it's quite likely I'll say yes to be a speaker (as long as I have time on my schedule).
That said, I most likely won't promote your virtual summit to my email list (via solo emails), so keep that in mind when you're reaching out. I might include it in a weekly newsletter and share on social media though.
Will you speak at my in-person event / conference?
Maybe. If you’d like me to speak at your event, workshop or mastermind etc., get in touch and we’ll talk more.
Keep your message VERY short and to the point. I’ll ask for more if I want backstory with anything else.
Can I publish a guest post on your site?
No, I don't accept guest posts as this is a personal site. I personally write every single word on this website.
What books do you recommend I read?
I'll release a complete list at some point.
Who do you recommend as website designer / developer?
Gion-Per and his team over at Beecoding. He did all my work for years (since late 2013). Tell him I sent you (I can't promise he'll take on your project though).
