Then, Kevin joined us to talk about the first major business he co-founded, which was a suite of Amazon Associates affiliate sites.
These days, he has been focusing on a different project; a web hosting business called Bulk Buy Hosting (and now, ZoNode.com). In particular, he has decided to take a different turn with that business and we invited him on the show to talk about that and his new venture Zone Node.
Kevin also shares why he believes a bus station in Helsinki has a strong connection to a topic that regular listeners will be familiar with – The 1,000 Day Principle.
