But back to your mindset… (and why it’s going to stop you from getting what you want!)
Everything Is An Investment, Whether In Yourself Or Externally
Just like the heading says, everything is an investment. You can invest in complaining and negative beliefs, or you can invest in someone else’s business just the same. Do you want to go through life never building something for yourself on the side? I didn’t, and that’s what finally got me to stop and think about what I was doing with my life. I was in the web services industry, and I helped local businesses with their internet presence, which included fixing their websites, getting them more customers, and improving their marketing so they could compete with their competitors again. I had been an affiliate marketer many years earlier, but was unsatisfied with it because the work wasn’t rewarding, I wasn’t making a difference in anyone’s life, and there was zero sense of contribution and community… So I ditched that and went the local web services route, simply to work with people again.
But after a while, I realized that I had spent 6 years building other people’s businesses, and never really built anything for myself the whole time. (or even had a side test project at least!… which is what I should’ve been building the whole time!) I invested thousands and thousands of dollars, hours, and an unimaginable amount of energy learning the business and honing my craft.
Now don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change it for the world, and I learned invaluable skills during that process. But after about 6 years, I had a light-bulb moment… “I spend all this time working on other people’s businesses, hours and hours educating business owners on how to improve and stay on top of the ever changing online world (which they should be doing on their own if they truly care about the success of their business!), and have made companies ROI you can’t even fathom from online advertising.
Then one day it hit me… If I’m sitting on all this knowledge, why have I not been using it the whole time to build an asset for myself on the weekends???
I could sit here all day and wish and complain about how I should have done this or that, but all it took was that one moment and I have forever changed the direction of my life going forward. I was financially secure 2 years ago, had a decent income (more than I make now), and was generally seen as “successful.”
But I wasn’t totally happy.
I felt the only way I could grow, was to hire people and clone myself… not my favorite thing to d, nor close to the vision aligned with what I always wanted.
So after a long thought process over several months, I had an epiphany one day in the shower…. I had been asking myself how in the hell I was going to get where I wanted to go in life doing what I was doing. I knew I wasn’t going to make in if I continued down my current path, and on that one day showering for work I had an epiphany that would forever change things…
I got the answer to my question: “I’m going to have to get clever, and I’m going to need leverage.”
And thus, Clever Leverage was born.
I know, it’s probably anti-climactic to you at this time, and you might even be wondering why the hell I’m telling you this story when all you wanna do is learn how to make $100 bucks a day… but to me it was everything I needed to take a step in another direction.
Little did I know I would sit on my ass for 7 months and do nothing to move the ball forward with my new idea.And that my friends, is why I’m telling you this story. Because there’s no reason for you to waste time like I did, especially when you can make things work even faster once you get over the mental hurdles.
I wasn’t willing to go all in at first, to put myself out there, but I knew in my gut I could be doing more. In short, I wasn’t willing to invest in myself, my beliefs, and push my own envelope of comfort.
And guess what?
I didn’t get anything out of it either. I didn’t make a dime.
I didn’t grow personally.
I didn’t fail at trying (which would have been learning in action).
Not a damn thing happened, to be candid.
And this is what I want to talk to you about… (because making $100 bucks a day is chump change. What if I told you $100k/yr is more like it?)
Your Mindset Is Broken
Wanting to gain something without doing anything or investing a single hour or dollar into it, is a broken mindset.
Sure if you’d built up to that level I could see it, but going from zero to $3,000 a month online without investing in yourself, education, skills, experience, time, something, is pretty insane to me.
And so, I saw this question pop up, (and keep popping up!) and thought I would write blog post about it, in hopes of helping those that need to hear it.
Now I’m sure there’s going to be a ton of people who come across this and think… this guy is a fucking asshole! I want to make my $100 dollars a day while I sleep dammit! Where’s the magic button to print money?
Where’s the secret no one will talk about that shows you how to make $3,000 per month from home in your undies?? Fuck this guy, all he talks about is investment, when ALL I WANT TO DO IS GET WHAT I WANT WITHOUT INVESTING A DAMN THING!
Do you see what’s going on here? Can you see how this inner dialogue and belief about what it takes to achieve something, is actually producing the opposite result… regardless of skill level, effort, money, etc…?
So here’s what you should do instead…
Invest Every Ounce Of Time And Energy Into… YOU.
You must go all in on you.
You must first decide what you want in your life, make it clear (meaning write it down), and then start getting after it and never stop.
If you want to make $100 bucks a day online, it’s totally possible and doable for everyone, it just takes a little dedication, patience, and effort.
What if I told you I knew the secret to making $3,000 a month online from blogging?
Secret? lol come on!
The only secret is front loaded work, with a focus on semi passive income sources, and a willingness to try things until one hits for you.
I’ll be the first to tell you, what works for me, isn’t going to work for you. (in the sense of my blogging topics, my tone, etc… we all have a unique set of gifts, talents, and life experiences to pull from… that’s what makes it such a great opportunity!)
The [secret] 3 Step Process To Make $100 A Day Blogging Online
It’s simple really, setup your blog, turn your life into your blog content, write a quarter million words, and learn to monetize.
I know everyone wants it to be more complicated, and I’ve even said to myself before… It HAS to be more difficult than this!?!?!
But what is difficult, is working on something when nothing is happening. It’s hard, and we’re not conditioned to do this, unless you’ve started a business before.
If you look at my income reports, you will see those three steps are basically all I did when it comes down to it.
Now I won’t lie to you and say there weren’t personal hurdles along the way… hell, you can see how much I struggled mentally, and everyone’s journey will be unique to them. There are some bloggers out there who made $100 a day within their first couple months, but it took me about 6 or 7 months to get to that level.
But you won’t believe what happened next… the unveiling of the unlimited earning potential of blogging: and how I started making $200 a day, so happy I could pinch myself! 🙂
Somewhere between month’s eight and nine, I started making over $100 dollars a day. It was an exponential growth period, but that’s only because I worked my ass off for months at a time, prior to that.I went into seclusion to my Grandmother’s cabin way up in Maine in the middle of nowhere, and did nothing but figure this shit out constantly with no distractions.
What you see now, is all of the struggle and hard work figuring out what works for me coming to fruition.
Personally, I think I do okay, but not even close to the true potential. And I see it all around me too, how everyone has so much potential and all I see is opportunity for them. You can see examples of this in my other articles about ideas for starting a successful blog, and I even go in depth on how to start a hunting blog, how to make extra money for musicians, and how to start a vegan blog… to give some very specific advice to get your mind gears turning.
