It’s easy to lose track of things right now.
I have a ton of different things in flight. I’m managing a ton of freelancers doing different things:
- 3 website writers
- 1 formatter
- 2 ebook writers
- 1 website quoara specialist
- 1 ebook formatter
- 1 ebook cover designer
- 1 ebook advertising specialist
That’s a total of 9 people I’m managing and a TON of things in flight.
There is a lot of research that shows that it’s better to focus on just one thing and get that done. There’s an old Russian proverb that says “he who chases two rabbits catches none.”
I’m chasing way more than two rabbits right now. I’m chasing:
- Real Estate
And I have a business idea that I want to pursue that I think is the best idea of the lot.
So, I’m over-extended. I have a lot going on and a baby on the way. It’s easy to feel like I’m not in control of things and overwhelmed. The research and data say that I shouldn’t feel in control because it’s better to focus on only one thing.
But, I can’t allow myself to feel like that. That’s not an acceptable thing to feel. It’s not okay to take my foot off the pedal.
Because the research also doesn’t say how to get to $10K/day in passive income by 30. So, if I’m going to “defy” the rules and get to that income level at that age, I need to find a way to defy the research.
I need to do all of these things, not quit, and then make sure I figure it out.
I don’t know how else to get this done.
What I did today to make $10K a day at 30
Wake up & sleep:
I was washing my Whoop strap so I don’t have it on me. Sorry about that!
I walked 12,000 steps back and forth across my apartment. It’s time for a big workout tomorrow.
Diet was solid, lots of veggies and beans and healthy things. I’ll take it!
My Day Job
It was a Saturday.
Investment real estate
Nothing outside of standard real estate scrolls
I published a new book from one author and he already sent me the next one so I sent that to the formatter as well.
I need to do some research on the next keywords I want him to write a book on for me.
I also have another author who is a touch behind on things and I really need more production out of him. He has until the end of the month to get two more books done, which is more than two weeks out.
But, this other author I have has already finished his two books for the month in less than two weeks.
I might just double up with my first writer. He’s talented, so why not.
Amazon Affiliate Websites
I published a few thousand words, nothing crazy.
Quick article for one of my recurring writing clients. It’s low dollar amounts, but I can get it done really quickly, so it’s effectively ~$200/hour so I’m happy to do it for now.
Lots of time with my fiancee, the love of my life.
There is nothing more important than being with the right person.
What I made today
Rental Income: $33
Amazon Affiliate sites (2 sites): $0
Today’s pro-rated amount of monthly expenses
Once I pay off my debt, I’ll break out expenses into a line by line as well.
My plan for tomorrow
Tomorrow is going to be:
- Publish more work from my authors
- Research into more books I want written
