About Me


I’m Jason Li, founder of mint habits.

Mint habits is a blog about building a successful online business.

I don’t have any stories of being down and out – scraping my way out – and now I’m the ruler of the world.

I’m just not that fancy.

I went straight to University after high school and got a degree in Economics.

Just 3 months after graduation, I landed a REAL JOB for the first time in my life. It is still one of the proudest moments of my life.

My title was “Account Manager” for one of the largest banks in Canada.

My starting salary was $38,000 (woohoo yay me!)….

And I was ready to climb that corporate ladder. Try and stop me!

But… I didn’t even last 10 months…

No, the ladder wasn’t that hard to climb… and No, the work itself wasn’t that difficult (though it was certainly challenging)…

…It was because I had a micro managing boss from hell…. and I was nothing more than a little puppet taking orders every day.

It wasn’t just me that was miserable.

A senior to my role, who worked her ass off and someone I looked up to was making $50,000 after 10 years in her role.

10 fu*king years!!!!

Why bother climbing the ladder to $50k…

Ain’t nobody got time for that.

So I quit.

(And I was more than done being a pawn every single day.)

Fortunately… I was young, so I found a part time job and travelled a lot…. And in between these two things, I made it my mission to figure out how to NEVER work for someone again.

I side hustled a bunch of stuff (real estate was the worst!) that didn’t get me anywhere until I found the world of online marketing.

It took me a few years to figure out how to make money online – mostly cause I jumped from the newest shiniest thing to the next – but I finally got my shit together and settled on the best way to make money online….

….by building authority sites.

These long term websites I’ve created earn me a full time income today, and will continue to do so 10 years down the road.

That’s what I teach here at mint habits…

Building a real online asset that generates income today and indefinitely in the future.

There are a lot of blogs teaching this stuff. A handful are amazing. Most are “meh”.

I’m adding myself to the family of amazing blogs.

I encourage you to look around my blog. I do my absolute best to write content that matters to you.

The content either connects or it doesn’t.

You’ll know if you want to subscribe to my email list or not. I don’t want just anybody – I want people who actually want to be on it.

[Insert email optin box here…. yes lol I DO NOT currently have an email responder set up.. shame on me!]

Jason out!
