About Niall Doherty

Founder of eBiz Facts

Niall Doherty

Hi, I’m Niall.

I was frustrated by all the biased, incomplete, and contradictory information on the internet about how to make money online.

So I started eBiz Facts in late 2018.

You can read more about the website here.

Below are a few things about me.

  • I was born in 1982 and raised in South Kilkenny in Ireland (near Waterford City).
  • I graduated from Waterford Institute of Technology in 2007 with a BSc in Multimedia and Information Technology. My final-year project – a custom-built CMS – won an award for being “most commercially viable,” but I never made any money from it.
  • From 2007-2010 I worked as a web designer for Loyola University New Orleans. I ended up there because my favorite NBA basketball team played in New Orleans and I wanted to see them play in person. I created a website about the team and the site became affiliated with ESPN. I got a media credential and was able to sit courtside and interview players and coaches in the locker room, living the bejesus out of my teenage dream.
  • In 2010 I came up with a new dream: to travel the world and earn a living online. I promptly quit my job and have been self-employed ever since.

  • Over the years I’ve worked as a freelance web developer, project manager, coach, writer, blogger, author, online course creator, YouTuber, affiliate marketer, public speaker, and virtual assistant.
  • For a 44-month stretch between 2011 and 2015, I traveled around the world without flying, visiting 37 countries and crossing three oceans on a complete circumnavigation of the globe.
  • I’ve written two books. Both of them have fairly good reviews.
  • I made this video, which went a bit viral (more than 1 million views on Facebook)…
  • Since January 2011 I’ve been tracking all my income and expenses and publishing monthly finance reports.
  • You can reach me via this contact form, though I’d rather you leave a comment here on the site as I try to keep email to a minimum.
  • If you want to know what I’m doing now, see my now page (updated monthly).
