Back in action baby.

Yesterday was a tough day. Hell, I talked about how I burst into tears just sitting on my couch from everything going on.

I’m back in action now.

Yesterday was labor day, but now it’s time to get back to work. It’s time for me to start pitching as many projects as I can. It’s time for me to find something to really focus on and make happen.

Let’s get cracking.

I’m motivated if you can’t tell.

Yesterday there were 1,511 days until I turn 30 and need to make $10K a day passively. Here’s how I spent it in pursuit of that goal

The current phase of the plan

I’m in Phase #3:  The Business Phase.  You can read more about the phases and my plan to get to $10K/a day at 30 here.

I still consult, and I still have a job. I’m looking forward to removing both of those ASAP.

Wake up & sleep:

Whoop wasn’t working for me yesterday, but I slept a decent amount of hours. I’ll take it. Recovery was 62%

Exercise

I did a Peloton workout yesterday and I did some other exercises on the floor, like plans. Overall, my day strain as high at 18.9

Stress levels

Stress was probably a 2/5, with 1 being the highest.

Diet

I had a protein shake, faro, and overall just a vegan heavy day and diet. All good things there from a health perspective.

My Day Job

I still have this job. I go back and forth on this, on whether or not I should keep it. It’s annoying and stupid, but it’s also not a ton of work and it’s good income. I’m beginning to think I should keep it until they require us to go back into the office. When that happens, I could quit then.

TBD on this.

Investment real estate

Nothing here, as it should be.

CCIO: My business

TBD on this for now. It’s coming in Q1 of 2021

Side Consulting

Same old same old.

Data Project

Nothing here, just some prep for a meeting.

Sourcing new work

Nothing here on sourcing new work. Waiting for a nice project to land here.

$10K/day website

Nothing

Family

Nothing

Miscellaneous

Fantasty football draft. That will be a nice ~$500 when I win the league.

Dean Woods

Dean’s goal is to create $10,000/day in passive income through entrepreneurship. Too many people write “success porn” that skates over the struggles many face in entrepreneurship. His goal is to create something real that highlights the lack of sleep, disappointment from family, and setbacks you really face in entrepreneurship. The hope is that $10K a day swill inspire someone else out there to make their entrepreneurship dreams happen. Dean Woods is side hustling and working a full time job to kickstart his entrepreneurial path. Prior to this life, Dean was a management consultant. Dean graduated with honors from The Wharton School.
