I see a lot of bloggers talking about this and that, and most of the time it’s just to sell you shit. I mean let’s be honest, it’s the opening of their funnel, where they will market the hell out of you until you buy. Me, I’m a bit different… I only want people to buy stuff from me if they like what I put out, and if they think I’ve already done the work for them. And as of right now, I don’t even have anything to sell even if I wanted to lol. Point being, when I wanted to become a professional lifestyle blogger, and ditch my 9 to 5 job forever, there were very very VERY few bloggers who truly put out inspiring, actionable information I could use to create my own success for free.
These case studies, are a documentation of everything I wanted to create, so you can use them for your own motivation. They don’t have to match up exactly with what you want to do, just take what applies to you out of them, and let your mind see how it is possible for you too. There are some failures in them, and a lot of successes. I found out very quickly, that the biggest thing holding us all back, is just fear. Fear makes us doubt ourselves, doubt gets us to make excuses, doubt gets us to question every little thing, so we never actually have to do anything… for fear that we will have to deal with a bruised ego, when it comes time to see why we are truly not living up to our potential and living the life of our dreams… even though we are fully capable already.
Don’t lie to yourself, just like I lied to myself for many years. You know, deep down, there is that little inkling that you CAN do that thing you’ve always wanted to do. You know it’s possible. But life gets in the way right? I know, I lived this story for many years, and I wasn’t happy.
Well, my hope is that these case studies, will not only inspire you to take action on your dreams, but also speak to you at your deepest truest self. You don’t have to want the same things as me, and you can swap out any of my case study stories for something that sets your inner spirit on fire.
For example, it doesn’t have to be a four wheeler you get for free, maybe for you it’s a luxury sports car or a big 4×4 truck… or maybe it’s not $5,000/mo in semi passive income, it’s $15,000 a month.
Use these case studies to allow yourself to imagine how you too, can do what you know you truly can. Those dreams that you’ve had all along, that somehow get pushed aside like they do for all of us who lead a busy life, use these case studies as a framework you can model, and plug and play what your truest truths are for you.
It all works the same, and just because you see me reviewing saunas, doing website tutorials, etc… doesn’t mean you need to do those things. All you need to do is pay attention the success stories, model the framework used to get there, and then plug in your passions and interests in the same way.
There is no competition when you build a lifestyle blog this way. There is only one you, with a unique set of values and interests that only appeal to a certain tribe who resonate with you. It means if you don’t do this, those people will never get what they’re so desperately looking for. You.
Do you believe that ripples affect ripples in a lake? I do. Now imagine that you’re the giant wake from a big boat that reaches all the way to the shore, and in in order for the people that are trapped on the shore to awaken from the night and signal you to pick them up, you have to cast a large enough wake to make a splashing sound on the shore. Well, what happens if you never drive by in the first place?
Exactly, that’s why it’s so important for you to follow your dreams and do that thing you’ve always wanted to do. It’s your duty. If you don’t do it, not only will you not live up to your full potential, but thousands of lives will not be affected positively in the way they could be if you did. Are you ready to take that missed opportunity to live a fulfilling life to your grave? I wasn’t. That’s why I embarked on these journeys below. Now go and do likewise… read them, take the lessons with you, and start your own versions of inspiration, so you can keep the ripples flowing as they should…

Goal: Get A $7,679 Polaris Four Wheeler For Free
Back in 2015, when I was frustrated with my job and wanted to start this blogging thing, but didn’t know if it would work… I got this hair up my ass to try something on a smaller scale to see if it WOULD work. See I’ve been going to Maine with my grandmother for over 25 years, and I’ve always felt at home in the mountains away from the city. One of my favorite things to do growing up, was ride four wheelers. I’ve owned several during my life, and it’s quite possibly my favorite thing to do in the world. However, now that I’m older and have life responsibility, and live in Florida only going to Maine twice a year… the idea of buying a $7,000 machine just to have to ride a couple times a year, just doesn’t make financial sense right? Right. Well, that is until I realized I could figure out a way to get an ATV for free, by creating a semi passive income asset that would pay for it… OR, creating an ATV enthusiast brand presence, and get an ATV manufacturer to give me on. Stay tuned, it’s about to get interesting! (cliff notes: I got the four wheeler, and I’m making more than it costs)

Goal: Create A Lifestyle Blog You Can Live Off Of From Anywhere In The World
Probably like you, even if we’re a little bit successful in our career or life, we always could be at that next notch up would you agree? Well, I was struggling a couple of years ago, made decent money, but nothing I could retire on. It seemed like the more and more I tried to scale and generate more income for myself, the worse things got. Bigger higher paying clients, just felt like adding another boss demanding this or demanding that. Finally I got fed up with it, and began thinking of ways I could harness the knowledge and skills I already had, into some type of online business that I could do from anywhere in the world. Why you ask? (many people wonder who wouldn’t be happy living in sunny Florida year round right?) Well the truth is, I am very blessed, but I had one little regret nagging at me. A few years ago, my grandmother passed away, and I had the chance to spend more time with her before she passed, but didn’t take it. Nowadays, I don’t want to make the same mistake twice, and the 94 year old WWII (silver star awarded) Veteran Grandfather way up in the backwoods of Maine I want to spend time with him while I still can. Many people don’t know this, but he played a major role in my life as a male figure, and the only reason I know how to build a damn thing in life, is because of him. There’s just something special about growing up in the woods, and being exposed to old timers building cabins in the woods, that shapes who you become for the rest of your life. I finally am at an age where I truly appreciate, and didn’t want to waste another second being tied down to a geographical location and miss out on appreciating in first person. And thus, the desire, inspiration, and duty to create a lifestyle business income was born. I’ve never looked back, even though I stumbled and crawled through some of it, often taking months to make decisions and chess moves that would forever change the course of my life thereafter.
