Day 166

DISCLOSURE: THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS, MEANING I GET A COMMISSION IF YOU DECIDE TO MAKE A PURCHASE THROUGH MY LINKS, AT NO COST TO YOU. PLEASE READ MY DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO

Yesterday was Sunday. It was a total non-event from a work perspective, so I’ll keep this update brief.

I also know it’s unusual that there was a “non-event” day when I’m all about hard work. However, a little baby has a way of changing things for you!

Yesterday there were 1,541 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:

I got 5 hours and 29 minutes of sleep and had a recovery of 20%. That’s pretty low, but with the baby, I’ll take it.

Exercise

I did a 20 minute Peloton workout that was pretty much a recovery ride. I didn’t really push it at all, and I’m glad. It’s definitely a recovery day today.

Stress levels

Weekend so nothing

Diet

Diet was coffee, and then noodles and a protein shake. Not bad, pretty vegan.

My Day Job

Nothing

Investment real estate

Nothing

CCIO: My business

Nothing right now. Coming soon!

Side Consulting

Somee work here

Data/strategy work

Nothing, but saw a few emails go back and forth.

Quick Deck

I have a client who needed a slide really quickly. I had hired my researcher to do a few hours of research, I then reviewed the research, then turned it into a whiteboard drawing. I send a picture of my whiteboard to my powerpoint guy who turned that into a slide.

Then I reviewed, made some tweaks, and then sent it to my client.

He loved it.

Overall, it was a total win and a quick $500

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.
