Who I am, and why I want to help you succeed.
About Tim Fraticelli
Hi, I’m Tim and my goal is to help you make more money, pay off student loans, and pursue work you enjoy.
I started PTProgress back in 2013 just before I quit my job as a financial consultant and started PT school.
Believe it or not, I went back to school in my late 20s to become a Physical Therapist…
…and now I make a full time income online.
But let’s back up….
After finishing my bachelors degree in business, racking up $65,000 in student loans, I landed my first job at a financial group just before the financial meltdown of 2008. Nice timing, right? Within a year I was able to complete an MBA and add another $20,000 to the pile of student loans.
After 5 years of traveling as a financial consultant, I wanted something different, so I applied to PT school and was accepted
Part of the reason I could make the jump was because I created a stream of revenue from a few financial blogs I eventually sold to pay for my living expenses during PT school.
But PT School isn’t free, so I amassed another mountain of student loans, bringing my total loans to $200,000
There are a lot of students graduating with 100,000 to 200,000+ in student loans. You might be one of them.
This blog is to show you how to make progress:
- Paying off student loans
- Earning more money
- Pursuing work that you enjoy
How I Replaced My Income While Working a Full Time Job
I’m no stranger to side hustles. I started my first financial blog back in 2010 and quickly grew it into a network of 6 different blogs, earning 3-4k a month on the side. This was a huge help as my wife and I went from a 2 incomes down to 1 income in 2011 when she went back to school.
Fast forward to 2018 and
I’m working full time as a PT I work as a part time PT and earn a full time income online.
Career Development and More
PTProgress exists because I want to provide people with tools to develop in their career and to succeed professionally.
But I also want to inspire people to explore other opportunities outside of the traditional work inside the clinic.
One of the best ways to do this is to start a blog and to become a resource to others.
How I Earn a Full Time Income Online
I earn most of my online income through a few different channels:
Direct Ads (like you see on PTProgress)
Affiliate Products (Recommending other products)
Digital Products (eBooks and Courses I create)
How much would an extra $1,000 a month help in paying down your loans? What about $2,000 a month?
Making money online isn’t mysterious anymore. You may have to spend some time learning the basics, but you can absolutely create a blog and start earning money without feeling like you’re selling your soul.
