Hey! It’s Joshua from
I share a wealth of self-help quotes, in-depth net worth articles, creative Instagram captions, honest course reviews and essential insights into the online space.
My mission is to inspire and empower others to build an extraordinary life of freedom through the internet, all grounded in a growth mindset.
My aim is to help beginners unlock the potential of building an online business in the content publishing space. Over the years, I’ve crafted more than 4,000 articles across my various websites, attracting millions of views and inspiring both current and future digital creators.
Who I Am
I am Joshua Lee, a normal-ish guy from the Sunshine Coast of Australia and the sole force behind this blog. My passion lies in researching, analyzing and communicating by creating helpful content. I collaborate with other creators to ensure the accuracy and relevance of my articles, personally handling every aspect of this blog. I’m a huge fan of one-man-band online businesses and so, you won’t find any outsourcing here. Every word is my own! 😃
I started Work With Joshua in 2011, initially as an Multi-Level Marketing recruiting site. Ugh! 🤦🏻♂️ After quickly realizing the ethical issues with MLMs, I shifted my focus to champion integrity in the online world.
Today, not only do I actively campaign against MLM schemes but cover a range of topics from influential creators and celebrities, to self-help insights. My blog’s growth from a humble beginning of 0 readers in 2011, to over 250,000 monthly visitors in May of 2023, highlights how far I’ve come through hard work, commitment and reader trust.
I never doubted myself while growing this blog. Results just came a waaaayyy slower than I expected, but they eventually did come in a big way! ☺️
My passion for writing quality content drives my blog’s integrity. Each one of my articles reflects my dedication to deep research and truth.
Ethical Affiliate Marketing
To fund this blog, I primarily use programattic display ads. I also disclose my affiliate links to course I’ve personally used and found valuable in my own growth journey.
Commitment to Fact-Checking and Openness
I pride myself on fact-checking my work and remaining open to alternate perspectives. This ensures neutrality and differentiates my blog from my many automated and anonymous competitors, especially when it comes to estimating an individual’s net worth.
Building a content-based business is hard work. While my blog has been read by millions of people globally, it didn’t start out this way 12 years ago. It’s a super slow game in the beginning and I’ll be the first to discourage you. Only the strongest survive here but there’s plenty of room at the top.

What are your favourite mantras when you’re working?
Just grind it out.
There ain’t no competition for hard work.
Maybe a bit harsh but I genuinely believe that no one’s coming to save me.
What podcasts are you listening to right now?
Quite a few actually.
In the business-space:
- All-In Podcast
- My First Million
In the website-publishing space:
- Niche Pursuits
- Authority Hacker
In the deep-thinking space:
- Lex Fridman (wow, these are deeeep!)
- Tom Bilyeu
What is your #1 aim in business?
I aim to do meaningful work and live a nomadic lifestyle. I went full-time in 2018 and haven’t looked back.
Tangibly speaking, my goal is to have 1x 7-figure exit and a few 6-figure authority website exits over the next 7 years.
What books do you recommend?
I’ve read way too many and different books appeal to different folks. This is why recommendations can be hard.
I really love reading though. For just $20, I can get absorbed into someone’s entire thought-process. Brilliant.
Of what I’ve ready, these are my favourites:
- Deep Work by Cal Newport. You’ll want to get off social media after this.
- The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz. In summary, the harsh reality of business.
- What To Do When It’s Your Turn by Seth Godin. I always come away brighter by reading Seth’s work.
- Built To Sell by John Warrillow. An incredible guide for building a business to sell. It’s a story similar to Rich Dad, Poor Dad.
- The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer. Holy crap – this book reached me at the perfect time!
If building a real online business appeals to you, then start with these.
Who are the villians?
- Your smart phone notifications
- Your social media accounts
- Most internet marketers
- Most multi-national corporations
I would also say most network marketing companies and those calling themselves ‘entrepreneurs’ you see on social media.
That said, you can learn a ton through their training and change your life, but MLM started dying off around 15 years ago.
In 2023, there are a ton of opportunities online. The best business models are those that can be sold off for large exits.
What’s your biggest desire here?
It’s my hope that you, the reader, can produce the work that makes you shine.
For me, that’s through building a website that gets 10,000 page views per month.
My website is called Work With Joshua
And of course, I’d love the chance to work together, however…
I’ll be realistic and show you what’s possible with sacrifice and commitment…
As opposed to the bare-minimum work ethic that has encapsulated the western world.
If you want the big results, then you’re going to have to work. There is no exceptions here.
That’s why this is called Work With Joshua, not ‘Go Fulltime in 3 Weeks’ or something unrealistic.
Scrolling hourly on social media doesn’t count as work. I gave that up in 2019.
If you’re serious, choose your growth strategy and enrol into a quality course.
(Mark and Gael’s AH course is my best pick)
Then you’ll need to block out the world and get into deep, deep work.
Start implementing what you learn. One step forward each and every day.
I’d love to cross paths in the very near future and help you in your journey.
I’ll be executing on my plan and helping a few people to build theirs too.
