Another decision I made recently is that I plan to continue going against a disturbing problem I’m sure you’ve noticed the past few years online:
The problem of …
– Start Up Bros
– Software Kingpins
– Large Staff, Larger Offices, and a HUGE Payroll
– Hustle, Go In Early, Stay Up Late, Neglect Friends & Family in the process
– Launch A Product, Burn The List, Repeat Cycle
Now I’m not saying that route isn’t successful – it is and I’m sure you’ve seen its results.
But are you sure you know the rest of the story?
The massive payroll, the need to never stop working, the late night and forgotten weekends just to name a few issues I’ve seen.
And while I respect the giants in our industry (I’m looking at you ClickFunnels, Digital Marketer and many more) I have zero desire to be like them in terms of size, staff, and even yes sales & profit.
That’s right, I’ve decided that I don’t want to make every last dollar possible at the expense of building a life, business, or lifestyle I hate in the process.
There will be no 6am wake up calls, no TPS reports (quick, name that movie), no huge staff or army of outsourcers that I have to constantly pay and as a result have to keep coming up with the latest and greatest thing or shove another affiliate product down your throat just to make payroll.
Instead, I am working on simplifying things and keeping my expenses low, so I can enjoy life on my terms.
Because here’s the truth (based on 10 years experience and watching a few of my fellow friends make the switch) … there is VERY little you CAN’T do making a consistent five figures per month.
I know for some of you that seems impossible and for some of you that number represents a bad month.
But to me, that number represents total freedom.
To live the life I want, the way I want.
To take all the vacations I can handle, drive a nice car, live in a nice neighborhood and take care of all of my friends and families wants and needs oh and save a little for a rainy day.
Sure, I won’t be shooting a video from a helicopter, with my super model wife, and tricked out car collect anytime soon but I also don’t have deal with the stress and frustration those folks face.
So if you want to be the next Elon Musk, Facebook, Huge Fortune 500 company with a company manual, an HR department and more – maybe I’m not for you and you’d be better served by someone else.
However, if you’re interested in being a lean, green, money printing (and enjoying your life) machine then you’re in the right place.
If you want to live life on your terms, making or supporting things you care about, and enjoying life in the process – then you’re in the right place.
And even if you’re lost and only know what you DON’T want vs what you DO – well, I’m glad to help until you figure things out.
PS: Maybe I can’t help you, maybe I’m not the one you should listen to and take advice from. If you’re looking to become a software and info giant I recommend these folks.
If an agency based business or one that needs more strategic work – these guys have always treated me right.
Either way, I wish you the best on your journey and hope our paths cross again soon.
