Welcome to Online Success Genie!
My name is Dave Fonvielle, and this website helps you do more (be more productive, automate business tasks, scale up your business efforts), earn more (make more money), and save more (save time and money).
To help you achieve this goal, I created Sheets Genie. In the future, I also plan on releasing articles, courses, discovered deals and discounts, and additional tools that help you do more, earn more, save more.
Why did I create OnlineSuccessGenie.com and share Sheets Genie?
I’ve been making a living online since 2011. I created Sheets Genie, in part, to give me an edge in scaling up my business activities. And then I decided it was too much fun to keep it to myself.
Also, I find it exciting and rewarding to know that others are benefiting from something I’ve created.
A random entrepreneurship story just for fun
I’ve been making a living online since 2011, but I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was a kid. So here’s a story about one of my first and most successful entrepreneurship ventures ever, as well as one of my earliest financial mistakes.
I’m an American, but I grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Every summer, my family and I would travel to the United States, and when I was 9 or 10, I think, I got the bright idea to load up on tons of American candy that Brazilian kids didn’t have access to at the time.
Then, when I returned to school in Brazil, I resold the American candy to my fellow Brazilian classmates at exorbitant, outrageous prices. I sold out of my stock of candy super fast, making an enormous profit for a kid, except for one crucial thing I didn’t fully understand, yet…
Inflation. The currency at the time was Cruzeiros. I made a fantastic profit when I first sold the candy, but then I saved the money instead of spending it, and a month or two later it was practically worthless. You live and learn, right?
