According to a 2017 Gallup poll, two-thirds of Americans are disengaged, meaning they feel no real connection to their jobs or worse, causing them to do the bare minimum in their roles and responsibilities.
Heck, I know back in 2014, I was a member of that group.
I was working for a website that did reputation management. The office was just outside downtown Boston.
Of course, when I started, things were great!
I was 24 years old, I was a few years removed from college, I had just moved halfway across the country to a new city. I was making…
So you want to build a passive income online business but don't know where to start?
Well, luckily for you — you’ve landed in the right place.
What you're going to read in this article is my proven method for building a passive income online business. Now, I've been at this for about 4 years and I have gone from absolutely obscure and unknown online writer to over 3 million views, 5-figure a month income, working for myself, and doing the work that helps fulfill me that my office job and restaurant gigs couldn't.
You're on stage, in front of thousands and thousands of chomping-at-the-bit individuals listening to the unparalleled and life-changing expertise you're presenting.
You go through your set. You're completely on point.
You're calm, confident, and compelling. The panel host tees up questions for you and you blast them out of the park a la Sammy Sosa circa 1998.
Everything is flowing.
As the presentation starts to wind down, your audience is ravenous — they need more. They're foaming at the mouth. The Good Word has been spoken, it's left your lips and now your disciples need more.
I love uncovering and identifying the moments of catching "Oz behind the curtain."
Hopefully, you know what I'm talking about. It's when you discover things in the world that seemed so regular and ordinary only to realize later that it was a ruse or a strategy meant to be used at an advantage.
I first realized this phenomenon as a young boy.
I used to watch shows like The Late Show with my father. I'm sure many of you are familiar with late-night talk shows. I would watch people like David Letterman and Jay Leno interview celebrities. …
You don't need to reinvent the wheel or become a world-class productivity Queen (or King) to build, grow, and scale a viable and successful side-hustle endeavor.
In reality, it's quite the opposite, depending on where and how you look at what you're already doing every day. Many side-hustle and entrepreneurialism "gurus" will tell you you have to:
Fortunately, we live in a world where you can exit your 9–5 job slowly — without the need to fully take a head-on, risky leap.
In the past, if you wanted to work for yourself, chances are you would need:
Making money online is confusing as hell.
There are so many different narratives that people say you should follow:
But it's often hard to know where to start. Plus, it's difficult to find the confidence when you're just starting out. I know I thought I needed a massive following and a big email list to sell to.
However, you really don't. Even if you're just starting out, you can still leverage your gifts and ideas and share them with an online audience and start…
Making and selling e-commerce products is awesome.
Anyone who has ventured into selling products and services (whether online or otherwise) understands the rush that happens when a sale is completed. It entails the obvious financial victory as well as the psychological achievement of attaining a goal.
On a business coaching call the other day, I actually told my coach e-commerce is like a drug.
"I love this game," I said, "it's almost like a drug, you know, you keep chasing that next hit."
My coach laughed, "Yeah I know what you mean. Ever since leaving teaching and now working and…
The world keeps speeding up. If you're not quick enough, perhaps you'll get lost in the shuffle. If you don't make the right stock market trade, you can lose out on thousands of dollars. If you don't send that organizational improvement email to your boss, a competing coworker can beat you to the punch. If you don't ask out that girl you met at the coffee shop, chances are you'll never see her again.
Sometimes, the speed of the world can make us feel overwhelmed, anxious, tired, and confused. To get our energy, confidence, clarity back — we need to…
You wake up.
It's Monday, you're all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. You finish brewing your fresh cup of coffee. You sit down at your desk, finally ready to create the work you told yourself you would the weekend prior.
And then ten minutes buzz by as you're caught staring at the blinking cursor on your screen.
Another three minutes whizz by and now you're on Instagram looking at Millionaire Mentor posts hoping to get inspiration.
Why does this always happen? You felt refreshed from the relaxing weekend and you finally thought this Monday would be different. …
