So it’s been a while…
A year, actually. It’s been exactly a year and one week since I published my last post.
Shame on me.
Actually, no shame, because I do have a good reason. That reason is because I was making big adjustments in my life. Like, quitting-my-job-and-going-back-to-freelancing kind of adjustments.
If you’re a part of my email list (and if you aren’t, you really should join 200+ people in-the-know), you already know about my struggles and changes this past year. However, many of you superheroes expressed interest in knowing more of the details about that transition, and exactly how I went from $0 to $3000 per month in freelance work in a little under four months’ time.
Quite the legit request, so I’m going to fulfill your wishes in this post.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could avoid making a bunch of mistakes in your online business?
You know, just kind of bypass the stuff which could seriously screw up your momentum and potentially wreck your business’s future success?
Fortunately, you can.
You certainly aren’t the first person to have entrepreneurial dreams. Others who’ve gone before you have made their own flubs time and time again.
And you can learn from them.
Listen up! Got a little secret for you.
It’s something a lot of “professional” business owners think is a joke. It’s something a lot of the world thinks is silly. And it’s something you might even think is just a dream.
The secret is you can make money off your hobby or passion.
Seem unreal? It’s not. Other entrepreneurial geeks do it every day.
Take, for example, Elon Musk. He didn’t get where he was by giving up, did he? Even he realized he could earn some dough through his dreams of renewable energy and space exploration.
So why don’t more people start trying to build their own online business empires?
It’s because they don’t know where to start.

Isn’t it awesome to be lazy?
Ignoring work while you watch a bunch of YouTube videos. Playing Minecraft an hour later than normal. Letting the next episode of Daredevil auto-load on Netflix (binging, FTW, right?).
But have you ever let that laziness go a bit too far? Like where you shirk your responsibilities all together?
Don’t lie now.
We’ve all done it. In fact, I’m not going to lie to you anymore: I often let laziness get the better of me more than is acceptable for a business owner.
In fact, my latest bout of laziness happened just last week…
Have you ever had someone tell you your goals and dreams are impossible? Or someone who always seems to hold you back from accomplishing something amazing? What about someone who essentially told you your online business dreams are ridiculous?
Those kinds of people are the worst.
There’s an official term for people who are cynical or skeptical about a topic. They’re called naysayers.
I personally like to call them assholes, but for the sake of this blog’s theme (and not littering this post with swearing), we’re going to call naysayers what they really are: villains.
