While attending Ed Dale’s Homecoming 2 conference here in Melbourne a few weeks back, I had the good fortune of spending some time with professional blogger, Yaro Starak.
I love it when you meet someone and once you start to dig a little deeper you realise there’s more than meets the eye – there’s a very real story behind them. Yaro’s one of those kind of dudes… just check out his site www.entrepreneurs-journey.com/about to read the full story.
In short, Yaro has created, managed and sold several different Internet businesses since 1998 and currently teaches people how to make a full time income from blogging part time. Anyway, he let me know he was coming back to Melbourne for the weekend and we thought it’d be good to record an interview for you.
I asked him a whole bunch of questions like:
– What tips do you have for buying and selling websites?
– What are the key lesson’s he’s learnt over the years?
– How does he apply the 80/20 rule to his blogging?
Heck I even almost asked him the meaning of life… Yaro’s a very well rounded guy with lots to share, watch the video below to see what I mean. Who knows you might even decide to become a professional blogger too.

Great interview with Yaro!
I always like video better than just audio and text. I’m a little biased though!
Was great to meet you briefly in Melbourne as well during Ed’s event at the dinner. Melbourne seems like THE place to be when it comes to internet marketing in Australia!
Would be cool to stay in touch…
Thanks for the kind words and it was good to meet (brief as it was).
Just took a look at your website and you’ve got some really cool content there. I’ll shoot you an e-mail and perhaps we can chat on Skype.
Great interview here. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
I must say, I am a newbie to your blog, but just surfing around a little, I see you have some great content.
My own blog has continued to grow very fast over the last few months and I put it down to content, too. Its much better to go with quality, over quantity – that’s for sure.
Keep it up… You’ve just got another subscriber!
Great interview… am thinking of setting up a professional blog, but the lack of sellable ideas limit my progress… nevertheless, it was great to see how one of the greats do it!
I’ve first heard about Yaro when a friend gave me a copy of his Blog Blueprint ebook. It was a very good read because it taught me how to blog effectively, and also how to monetize my blog. Before that I was just blogging because I wanted to speak my mind. While I’m still doing that, I am now also blogging to earn. Great interviews. Keep them coming!
Your video post in Facebook showing your interview with Yaro really got me interested about professional blogging. Now, I’m becoming a follower of both of you (“,) and sharing your websites to some of my friends. I am grateful that you are both sharing your ideas and expertise. I hope I can get to make things work in my end.
