What I did today

I’m feeling good today, more motivated. In fact, today was my best day yet from a financial perspective. I made well more than $1,000 today, although it certainly isn’t sustainable in the way I made it today.

This is oddly scary to write about. I’m very open with how things are going, meaning this is personal. It’s naked, almost.

But, it’s also motivating. I don’t want to let “you” down, whoever you are, that’s reading this.

Hell, I don’t think anyone reads these. But, the thought someone might be is motivating to me.

I read Stephanie Clifford’s excellent article earlier today about one of the founders of RX Bar. Her article is fantastic-an incredibly raw look at the life of someone who made millions but still doesn’t have it all.

Her article had me wanting more. I wanted to know more about Peter during his journey to launch RX Bar. Her article covered his mindset today, in a perfectly brilliant, raw, kind of way.

But, I want to know what his mindset was like during his journey to make RX Bar.

I think that’s why I’m feeling motivated today. I’m not building RX Bar, but I am going to share these posts every single work day for the next year. My plan is a couple of things:

  • A year from now, I will be making $1,000/day every day, including weekends. That means some sort of passive income is required because I’d rather spend weekends with my loved ones.
  • This case study will have hundreds of entries as I keep writing them each day

I want this case study to hopefully help show that it’s not all fun and dandy. I’m motivated, but I also feel like shit. I haven’t slept, my face is hot, and my head hurts.

But, I’m going to keep going. And I hope this case study inspires you to keep going too. Because you get to see my mindset as I go through my own journey, just like I wish I could have seen Peter’s mindset in his journey.

This has been an incredible day. My big client ended up liking my work and paid me for it.

Of course, this is all extremely not passive and I put my body through hell to get it. But, for now, I’m happy with this!

My plan for tomorrow

So I have exactly no other work in the pipeline as I’ve been totally focused on this. I need to find a way to get this going so I don’t have a big goose egg, or negative, day tomorrow.
