Things are busy.

I’m so heads down that I’m barely able to think about the future, where things are going, and how to get there.

That’s unlike me.

But for now, I just need to push my way through. Once I’m all the way through these two projects I’m balancing, I’ll be able to pop my head up and think about real estate and businesses and CCIO (my main business).

Let’s just gut through this for now.

Yesterday there were 1,538 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:

Crappy day with the baby really not wanting to sleep last night. Only 4 hours nd 5 minutes of sleep, with a recovery scores in the low 20’s

Exercise

I did a 30min workout at night, but it was a light recovery one. I don’t even know if I can count it as a workout.

Stress levels

Tuesday was a 2/5 stress day, with 1 being the highest. Relatively normal day for me and relatively busy.

Diet

Diet was coffee, and then a ordered Thai food for dinner. Delicious.

My Day Job

I didn’t do anything at all here.

Investment real estate

Nothing here

CCIO: My business

Nothing right now. Coming soon!

Side Consulting

I’m slammed.

Data/strategy work

This is a huge amount of work. I have been on meetings all day long, starting at 7am. I wrap up meetings at 8pm, and then I need to jump directly into actually executing on the powerpoint and excel work.

My client counterpart loves calling my cell phone as well. I hear from her at 7am and I hear from her at 9pm. You can see that in the Rescue Time screenshots.

It’s exhausting. I like her as a person, but it’s exhausting.

New huge project

I have a couple meetings on the books for tomorrow here.

Sourcing new work

Nothing here

$10K/day website

Daily post

Family

Time with the baby and fiancee!

Miscellaneous

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.
