Bob started Weichie.com in 2020. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Weichie.com?
It all started kind of as an accident. I moved to New York for a six-month internship in a digital agency and got immediately hired afterward. Because I wasn’t a US citizen, I was encouraged to register myself as a freelancer in Belgium and invoice an American employer.
Look up to people that inspire you but never compare your journey to theirs! Learn from them so maybe you can do it better, but every journey is unique.
After two years of New York madness, I decided it was time for me to move on. But now that I already started my freelance business I went for a consulting job in Belgium for larger companies and did website/SEO work for smaller businesses on the side.
The small website work quickly became larger and more complex. We shifted from basic websites to eCommerce and also received a lot of SEO requests from my current clients. This made me jump onto SEO and I used my personal website Weichie.com as an example site.
This went better than expected and Weichie ranked pretty quickly really high in the search results, receiving 20k+ unique visits each month! Selling my SEO knowledge to other companies and helping them increase their online visibility is what I love the most in my daily job.
