Why Obstacle.co?

Because Dreaming Doesn’t Get You Results

Everybody has a dream lifestyle they want to live. Sometimes that involves traveling, sometimes that means spending more time with family, and sometimes it means flying to Mars. Either way, we each have a lifestyle that we want and therefore we are searching for ways to attain it.

Obstacle.co was created to show you how you can achieve that lifestyle through blogs and online sites that amplify your passions.

Erm, Blogs?


Yes, blogs. Obstacle.co chronicles my journey of using blogs as a way to get towards my dream lifestyle.

Why blogs? Well, you’re probably thinking of blogs with pictures of cats or gossip celebrity and while those are blogs, I’m talking about the type that offer value to people. Blogs allow your voice to get out there and are an easy way to provide awesome value to your tribe.

A Different Approach to Teaching

Obstacle.co is different from the other sites that teach you how to make money online. Most sites use only one site as an example of how to succeed and it’s always the site you are reading. That works well because then the site just continues to grow, but it always seems to be a site about how to make money.

So is the only way you can make money online by creating a how to make money online site? Of course not, and that is what separates Obstacle.co.

I’ll talk about the principles that I use on this site and the other blogs that I will be creating. Some of these blogs will be worked on solely by me, while others will be collaborations.

The Sites

I currently run 13 blogs. That’s a stupid number of blogs to run and I don’t advise anybody to do it. I have the help of family on some of them.

In fact, my wife, mom, and brother all get to work on blogs due to the success we’ve had which is pretty awesome.

These are the blogs that are currently doing over 20,000 pageviews a month:

The other blogs? Well, since I can’t work on all of them all at once they are in different stages of growth. Once they reach the magical 10,000 pageview a month mark, I’ll be sure to add them to the list.

This is me. Big nostrils, gap in teeth, losing hair and an inability to button shirts all the way.

About Me

So who am I? I’m Paul Scrivens and I’ve been without a real job since 2014. 3 years prior to that I was building sites and running a ton of different business experiments. The in-between time I held down jobs as a product designer, senior product manager, and director of product development.

I’ve been blogging since 2003 and my first company was a blogging network that I ended up selling with my partners. Currently, I help normal people change their lifestyles by building awesome blogs at Billionaire Blog Club.

I love to experiment with ideas to see what works and what doesn’t. I’ve built and launched over 40 sites on my own. Some great, some terrible.

Obstacle.co was created to put all my knowledge to the test to see if I really learned anything after all of these years of building businesses or am I really full of shit?

Only time will tell.

The Billionaire Blog Club

I decided that learning how to blog was getting a bit out of hand for people. Having to bounce all around to find the right course that you need at the right time isn't helpful so I created the Billionaire Blog Club.

I wanted to create a blogging community that had everything you needed under one roof. Courses. Resources. Community.

So I did.

Join thousands of other brilliant bloggers who quit treating blogging as a hobby and have turned their blogs into businesses.

If you don’t like hard work and challenges then you don’t want to pursue blogging as an avenue for making money.

Seriously, you're better off mastering eBay.

This site isn’t for everybody but it might be for you.

First, let's get one thing straight. This is a blog that shows you how to make money blogging. Let's not pretend that it isn't.

This is not a blog that will present you with miracles or false claims. I run my own network of blogs to continue to showcase the lessons that I teach.

That's right, you aren't my guinea pig. You aren't the person I want to test my blog growth theories on.

If it works for my blogs I will share it.

If it doesn't work for my blogs I will share it.

If you want fluffy content that will make you feel warm inside then this isn't the site for you.

If you want content that gets straight to the point and gives you real perspective on how to make money blogging then I welcome you aboard.
