Things are just trucking along here. In other words, things are pretty much the same today as they were before.

This isn’t exactly the “internet entrepreneur” lifestyle you see online. I’m now 120+ days into this case study.

I don’t have “passive income” set up yet. I don’t have a Lamborghini. I’m not trying to upsell you into a course.

I’m just doing the same old stuff that I’ve been doing for the past four months. Get up, job, side hustle, sleep, repeat.

Day after day after day.

The Lamborghini photos are a lot more fun. I wish I was buying one right now too. I’m with you. I 100% agree.

The reality is entrepreneurship is not waking up one day, putting “entrepreneur #hustle” in your Instagram bio, and the car shows up the next day.

It’s a much longer and harder grind than that. It’s why I’m doing this case study. I want to show what entrepreneurship is really like, down to what I’m eating and sleeping and making.

I promise I’ll keep writing this case study for the next 5 years. That gets me to 30.

If I keep doing the same stuff I’m doing now every single day for the next five years, then I’m 100% convinced I’ll make it.

But, I haven’t made it yet. Sorry to the Lamborghini gurus out there.

What I did yesterday to make $10K a day at 30

The current phase of the plan

I’m in Phase #1:  The Job & Side Hustle Phase.  You can read more about the phases and my plan to get to $10K/a day at 30 here.

Wake up & sleep:

Whoop was being stupid so I don’t have anything here

Exercise

Same! Ditto with Whoop being stupid.

Diet

Diet was coffee, eggs,  and some cereal for dinner. 3/5 with 1 being the best.

It was Friday. I had a few meetings but nothing crazy.

Nothing here.

I have a few projects going on now.

Business plan

I did some work here to set up the outline for this business plan we’re building.

I did a ton of modeling work here today. It was pretty nifty; I’m excited about this model actually.

Frameworking

Filled out more paperwork so I can officially be brought on as a vendor for the next two months.

Sourcing new work

Nothing outside of what I mentioned above.

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.
