One big side effect of this  COVID business is how it’s impacting my consulting business. I’ve been afraid of losing that revenue, especially when we have our eye on an investment property, so I’ve been pitching on everything under the sun to try and get enough money  to buy it ASAP.

If everything goes well,  you hopefully sell that work.

But, one thing  I’ve learned is that it’s hard to control when you sell that work. For example, I just sold three projects yesterday.

On one hand, this is phenomenal because it will lead to $10K in revenue over the next few weeks. That’s a much-needed cash infusion that I really, really appreciate.

On the other, it means a shit ton of work for me coming up. I just don’t have the time to do time-intensive but low value-add jobs while also managing all of this.

For that reason, I’ve decided to build a Trello board and systems.

I built a board for the website content writing and a board for my eBooks. This will give me a  visual overview of how things are progressing along. It will also enable my team to work together, rather than through me. I’ve written out the process documents on what they are supposed to do and when.

The goal of this system is to essentially build a world where I’m  100% removed from the process!

It will definitely take a while to build up this world and get rid of the kinks, but this is the only way in which I can manage all of these businesses at once!

What I did today to make $10K  a day at 30

Wake up & sleep:

I went to bed at 9:47 and woke up at 6:38 for a total of 8 hours and 24 minutes of sleep.

Similar to before, however, the Whoop only has me at 37% recovery. I believe it, because my body feels like crap,  but that’s definitely not a good sign. I  think I need to do more cool-down work like walking around to loosen up the muscles, recover better, and sleep more.

Exercise

No exercise today after going for it yesterday.

Diet

Diet was okay, a bunch of eggs and veggies. I had a pretty reasonably good diet!

My Day Job

Monday, so I had some meetings and did some work on a  project for the office.

Investment real estate

I scrolled the standard real estate scrolls. I now have  ~30  Zillow  searches set up around the country to look at other properties to potentially buy.

Kindle

No work here,  outside of beginning to set up a Trello board.

Amazon Affiliate Websites

I published maybe ~4,500 words of content and built out that Trello board!

I need more publishing today.

Consulting

I have two contracts out, but I actually didn’t do any work on them yesterday. I need to today.

Family

Lots of time with my fiancee, the love of my life.

There is nothing more important than being with the right person.
