What I did today

So I wear a fitness tracker and last night was my worst night of sleep in a long time: a measly three hours actually.

But, I’m still feeling pretty damn good today and I’m not terribly sure how that’s happening. I think it’s because I feel so damn passionate about what I’m doing.

I started this case study because I spent years doing work that I didn’t want to. As regular readers of my articles know, I woke up in the morning and wrote my goals down. However, I never felt like I really did anything during the day to move towards accomplishing my goals.

This case study is the unvarnished behind the scenes look at how I’m moving towards my goals. I want to use the money I make here to pay off debt and buy real estate for rental income.

So, I’m doing what I can here to help move things in that direction so it’s possible to reach my goals.

To that end, I sold a $2,750 one week piece of work today. It’s an interesting problem, with a demanding client who is going to expect something great. That being said, I’m pumped about the opportunity and look forward to delivering them something awesome.

My plan for tomorrow

Tomorrow should be okay. I have a few big client meetings, and have a lot to do for my new piece of work. That being said, I’m still really excited by the opportunities that are happening here.

Let’s make some amazing stuff happen.

It’s time to make money and buy real estate with it!
