  I went to the bathroom and as I sat I checked the website stats from my iphone. Weird. We are getting referral traffic from Playboy.com . Then more and more and MORE. All of sudden orders started piling up. What the heck had happened''! We got written up in Playboy’s gift guide. Even though it took two of us all weekend to full fill all the orders I was ...

I returned from my run and checked my phone for an update on sales. What I saw shocked me and I started to do a dance all by myself in the kitchen. Amazon had sold $2,200 so far today and it was only 6pm. I downed some food and ran back to office. Our product was selling at a ferocious rate. Fifteen minutes later sales had almost doubled to $4,100. At ...

It’s a startup! In the beginning you have to wear all the hats wether you like it or not. My current job responsibilities include but are not limited to: CEO, janitor, customer service, warehouse manager, fulfillment, SEO, bookkeeper, quality control, producer, content creator, contractor. You get the idea. There are days that I love being able to switch between the different roles and there are times that are not so ...

I returned from Costa Rica in 2007 determined that I was going to make a fortune off the Internet and live part time in a tropical wonderland. Where does one start when trying to become financially independent' I could start a porn site'! Or perhaps I could sell toilet seat covers. I could sell GPS dog collars or suggest what Pay Day Loans people should get. The possibilities are endless! ...

I have been dead set to NEVER work in a cubical job ever again. In 2007 I started my first online business which was a great “learning” experience but failed miserably. The upside was that I had picked up a few new skill sets. I began brainstorming my next venture that would allow me the Tim Farris lifestyle. The advice you get most often when trying to start a new online ...

The 400 Hour Work week. Ok, so technically it’s not possible, but I really do work a lot. My family and what I have left of my friends think I’m crazy. In the past year I worked 42 days in a row without a day off and then another 28 days in a row averaging 400 hour weeks for the past year. I’ve left a girlfriends at 4am in the ...

I don’t come from a sales background. Truth is, I’ve never had a sales job in my life. The future of my company now hinges on making sales happen and in a pretty short time frame. Since my company includes myself and one employee we must try and learn how to best communicate with buyers who are sold to by pros on a daily basis. I’m not a person who really ...

I’m in my mid thirties and I’ve quit my job at least every 2 years since leaving college. This constant job upheaval was not just because of a deep rooted dissatisfaction from working toward someone else’s dream but also because I believe that making a major life change often has massive positive outcomes. I must state for the record that I am also the person who has a very difficult time making big changes. ...

It was another glorious Four Hundred Hour Work Week with some exciting progress made. I met with a good friend over lunch yesterday who was interested in taking a product he had produced as a hobby and turning it into a legitimate business. I am surprisingly pleased after conversations like these, it feels great to be able to pass along the knowledge gained and I realize how much you actually know about ...

Dinner conversations with friends very typically revolves around talking entrepreneurial shop. Often times it’s about the latest tech startup or perhaps a friend of a friend who is “killing it”. Another popular activity is the idea brainstorming game which I immensely enjoy because it has all the excitement of a new idea without any of the tireless hours of had work and financial risk. A friend recently asked me at one of these dinner ...
