Intermediate Bloggers

RJ Weiss

He started The Ways to Wealth in late 2016 after being inspired by Pat Flynn’s income reports. I’m grateful for the encouragement and information Pat’s detailed reports provided.

After starting the blog, he then discovered and read through the entire archives of income reports from the likes of Michelle Schroeder-Gardner and Rosemarie Groner. These reports helped as he worked his way through those first few months of blogging with little to show for it.

Eventually the strategies he was learning from income reports started to work. Less than two years later, The Ways to Wealth has grown to over 300,000 monthly readers. He’s also left his job in financial services to work on it full-time.

As the idea and inspiration for his blog came from income reports, he’s committed to writing them to help others accomplish their goals. You can see his latest here.
