Could you imagine going to 100 different publishers to get your book published and be turned down every single time?
Would you be able to keep grinding and pursuing a publisher or would you give up when it got tough?
What if, on top of the 100 plus publishers telling you no your book agent then drops you…would you still keep at it?
Honestly, that is a tough question and to keep going ...
When you hear, read, or even meet successful people do you tend to think they were “born with talent?”
Do you think they simply got dealt a better hand than you?
Sometimes people are born with more talent no question, but it’s the ones who put in the work that succeeds at the highest levels.
My success story for today is all about someone who (in his words) is a lazy person and ...
Welcome to my fourth income report!
I will be posting a monthly income report to make sure I am staying accountable and help inspire others.
In May of 2017, I decided to quit my six-figure job to give myself no other option but succeed as a solopreneur, blogger, writer, and author.
I knew this was my passion and I had to go 100% towards it.
I had ZERO formal education on making money online. ...
As an avid reader, personal finance enthusiast and blogger I read a lot of content online.
Some of it is good, a small percentage is amazing, and some of it is just garbage.
Personal finances are one of those topics that really get people heated because everyone wants to act like they know what to do with their money.
But I’ve read a few financial tips this year that just makes ...
Happy Saturday — today I have a great success story for you.
Successful people come from all walks of life — sometimes the harder the upbringing the great the reason to succeed.
This story is no different, a true rag to riches story.
Could you imagine having four different fathers, and an abusive, addicted mother who would pour liquid soap down your mouth for no reason? On top of the abuse being unsure ...
Do you ever meet someone at “retirement” age who is working at a job they hate because they still have too? Or pinching pennies simply trying to survive instead of enjoying retirement?
It breaks my heart and I’ve seen it happen a lot this year. I’ve had three different instances where it has affected me deeply. One was a 70-year-old Uber driver, an 81-year-old Wal-Mart worker, and a 75-year-old golfer.
Today’s post ...
When I started this blog it was originally all about personal finances. From homeowner tips, improving your credit, and learning how to invest.
But the more I blogged about money, read personal finance books, and learned about early retirement I began to understand something.
I realized that money is important but it is not the end all be all — no I’m not some “money doesn’t matter” for happiness bullshit.
If you’re poor ...
How often do you get grief from your friends or family when you want to start something new or set a big goal?
Maybe you want to start a business, create a Youtube channel, start a blog or write a book.
Do they support your goal, look at you kind of funny or a bit of both?
Hopefully both — I recommend setting huge goals because even if you don’t achieve them ...
As you get older do you ever feel that the real world kills your ambitions, hopes, and dreams?
Since I quit my job in May I realized part of me had slowly died since college and entering “the real world.”
Let me explain…At age 10 I would burn CD’s for my friends and sell them for $3-$5 at school (back in the Napster days).
By the time I was 14 I was buying ...
44 Million people have a side hustle while working full-time in America.
How do they manage to work full-time and have a side hustle?
It’s not always easy but it is 100% doable if you know why you are doing it and have a plan in place.
Some people quit side hustles because they don’t see overnight success.
Blogging, for instance, is not something you start up and see instant results. Whether it’s gaining ...
