Introducing Tim Bourquin of After Offers

This week we have Tim Bourquin on our podcast. Tim is the co-founder of AfterOffers.com, a platform that allows visitors to subscribe to your email list shortly after subscribing to another website in the same industry as you. He’s launched and sold several other online startups and also failed on a few. His story on how he got there is incredibly interesting.

Today, Tim and I talk about his days as a police officer before he became an entrepreneur, how he started making $1,000 every day from an “eBook” back in 1996/97, his multi-million dollar exit, and several other exciting stories.

  1. Great show guys thanks for the mention. I loved Tim’s story. I laughed listening to you talk about working on Saturday night Justin. There’s a cigar bar in downtown SD and sometimes I like to go down there on Friday or Saturday night when everyone else is drinking and smoking and just JAM! Gets me super psyched.

      Yeah, man – LOVING the content you’re putting out on the blog recently – really speaks to me.

      There’s a bar here in Davao called Business Class that I’ve been working at recently…knocking out work while everyone else is chatting and relaxing. I’ll normally join them later in the night, though. :-)

  2. Awesome interview guys, and I REALLY appreciate the mention. :) Keep it up, loving these interviews.

    Great episode with a lot of golden information!

    Loved how the principle of how you think about how others aren’t willing to put that work in, that you might be doing on a Friday night or Monday morning. A tactic that really helps me push myself sometimes.

    Tim is awesome, if you’re reading this, you can expect a call from me soon! :D

      Thanks, Karl!

      Yeah, man…I get giddy thinking about how we’re going to “crush” the competition because we’re willing to do what they won’t, hehe.
