About Me

 

 Hi, my name is Hassan Osman and I’ve been a part-time webpreneur for the past 8 years. I’m currently a senior manager at Cisco Systems*, and a blogger at The Couch Manager.

Ever since I got my first job, I’ve always had some side business going on. Mainly to make some extra income on the side, but also to learn about intriguing new ventures. I’ve failed a lot more times than I’ve succeeded, and I’ve learned a ton about what works and what doesn’t.

I’m also an avid reader of blogs and books about entrepreneurship, productivity,  lifehacks, and business psychology.

On this blog, I’ll share with you everything I learned over the years so you could hopefully avoid the mistakes I’ve made, and have a much more successful ride.

Here are a few facts you should know:

  • I’m not an expert: “An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.” – Niels Bohr. I certainly don’t qualify for that statement. I also haven’t made a million dollars on the side (yet :) ), so take my advice with a grain of salt.
  • No “get rich quick” schemes: People usually want a “fast and easy” way to make money. Unfortunately, making money online is slower and harder than what most people think it takes. My objective is to hopefully make it a little bit faster and easier for you – especially if you’re busy with a full-time job.
  • My audience is my family: When I post something on my blog, I think of my closest family members and friends as my readers. This means I will be 100% transparent about any affiliations and disclosures. I would never recommend a product or service to my brother if I don’t think it’s worth it (or if it can be found elsewhere for free ). You have my pledge that you’ll get the same treatment.
  • 100 is better than 100,000: Just like any aspiring blogger, I’d love to have 100,000 subscribers on this blog. However, I’d much rather have 100 active subscribers than a gazillion passive ones. My goal is to build a community of like-minded individuals: folks who are working hard at their jobs, are interested in making some money on the side, and like to share their experiences along the way.
