What I did today
It was a Sunday and it’s now been 84 days of writing this case study. Only a few hundred more Sundays until I turn 30, which means a lot more days of writing this case study and a lot more ground to cover to reach my goal of $10K/day in income.
Wake up & sleep:
I woke up at 7:19 am for a total amount of sleep of 8 hours and 11 minutes. Sounds like standard Sunday morning sleep, but, I know you are supposed to be on a routine and waking up the exact same time every day. I need to do that and I don’t know why I’ve been struggling to do that.
I took another couple of walks around the apartment, but no specific workout.
Morning coffee, and a lot of pasta.
My fiancee raised the great point of we need to have a more fruit and vegetable-heavy diet during this time of quarantine. I agree, both quarantine time and in general.
So, we ordered more veggie s on Instacart and will be eating a LOT of those once they arrive!
My Day Job
Investment real estate

We also talked about when it will be time to buy that 24 unit we have our eyes on. We decided that the time to buy it will be when we have the recently purchased 6 units fully occupied.
Once that happens, it means we’ll have almost $1,000 in cash flow (rent-expenss=cashflow). Since 24 is in the same area as the 6, it also means the same property manager. That way, we won’t be buying the 24 unit until we know that the property manager is a badass and has fully occupied our 6 unit.
We’re not worried about that at all, because she is great, but why not be sure when we’re talking about so much money?
No work at all, but I did have two sales of books!
Amazon Affiliate Websites
I published one article on the second site I’m trying to grow. I also did a lot of research because I’m not seeing any positive signs on that site and there is probably something wrong with it.
I’ll do some digging to figure out what it is.
On the first site, traffic was slightly down but the commissions were up. I had people purchase $100 worth of things from Amazon, so I’ll get ~$5 in commissions!
In other words, the site is really showing some positive signs and I’m pumped about it.
Most importantly, however, that should mean my API access is now opened up and I can use AAWP and other badass plugins like that!
No work here today
Lots of time with my fiancee since we’re home together.
It’s impossible to understate how amazing she is. I’m writing this right now while sitting next to her, and I love her with all of my heart.
What I made today

My plan for tomorrow
Tomorrow is Monday and the start of the week. So, I’ll have a bunch of work to do for my job, some private equity work, and I’ll spend the rest of the time on my websites!
