About Marshall

About Me:

I’m husband to a wonderful wife ( totally married up :)), father to a 9 year old aspiring ninja and a 4 year old who is eating us out of house and home ( we call him “lunchbox”). I’m a serial web entrepreneur living in Anaheim Hills, CA. I’ve been able to build a life independent of the 9-5 grind and completely financially viable where I am able to spend as much time as I can with my family. My goal is to help others figure out how to do the same. In order to do this I document what has worked for me, research what works for others and try to make it as easy as possible for you to take action.

I love to personally connect so drop me a line at mm@iheartdogs.com and introduce yourself. Big Things!

A Little More About Me:

I hate bios because they make people feel so untouchable. The truth is I’m just like you and everyone else trying to figure this life out. I grew up a humble pastors kid in upstate NY (Ithaca). I was a B/C average student with serious A.D.H.D and very distracted. After high school, I needed to get out so I drove to Southern California from NY with a guitar and one set of clothes. I had no idea what I was getting into.

I sold my first internet company for seven figures at the age of 28. You wouldn’t have known that only three and a half years prior I had just practically come off losing everything – cars repossessed, debt collectors knocking down my door, audited by the IRS owing lots of money and I almost didn’t make it through my first year of marriage. I was on a destructive path to nowhere. I was failing big time. In one of those lonely desperate moments I made a pact with God to change the course of my life and never looked back.

  1. Thank you Marshall for your service to our country! That about all else means a lot to me! I am so happy that you were able to turn your life around.

    I am a wife, mother, step mother, and grandmother (10 grand children, 8 girls and 2 boys)! Two of them are married, 2 in college, 1 about to be married, two in high school, and the rest are down to age 2. Boy do they keep me busy!

    I am a Paramedic from Atlanta, GA. where I worked for almost 30 years. Until a back injury completely sidelined me a few years ago. I am disabled now at age 64, so I am trying my best to create an online business that will help give us a little more security.

    Thanks for having such a positive blog, I love reading what you have to say!

  2. Saw your ad on Craigslist wish I had a car I would have loved to apply. I think your positive view of the world is wonderful. You sound like a great boss. Keep up the good work and always put the family first.

  3. Wow….Marshall! Totally want to be your friend. I have been on the same mission in the past year. I was let go in MAY 2016, from a job I felt I would retire from for sure. God didn’t see it that way for my life. And I have been on a rebirth journey every since. When I saw your blog I was totally attracted to it. Because I realized there are others that have the same goals about life that I do. I wanted to thank you for allowing me into your world of positivity and hope that we can promote each other. I know this is not the place to pour it all out, so I won’t too much, but just wanted to respond back to your email. Until the next time….Be blessed!!

  4. I stumbled upon your blog post on Pintrist. I am glad I did. I notice first the name of your blog. I love it. It drew me in. Then I checked out your blog. Your bio hit me between the eyes. Our stories of loss are much a like. I had a business that I shut down in 2010. I lost my house cars and business and had to file bankruptcy. My family was homeless for nearly two years and I too almost lost my wife and 3 boys. Only by the grace of God did I not. I now have a website called Word Dependent. I write a blog and try to post videos regularly. Almost no one views it but I press on because I enjoy it and I believe God called me to it.
    Right now I work a day job that I hate and because of past experience am afraid to step out again to start a new business. Your bio was inspiring to me and encouraged me to move forward towards my goals and dreams. Thank you!
