The Importance Of Sales And Finding Your Purpose

Sales is important. Probably one of (if not the) most important things in life. Sales and negotiation is what you do each and every day. You can’t escape it. Unless you are a buddist monk or live withdrawn from society as a hermit you are surround by sales each and every day.

Negotiation starts when you are very young. You want your parents to buy you that delicious looking icecream even though they want you to get away from the sweets. As you get older your values are changing. You want to stay out longer. You want more pocket money and drive the car of your parents.

If you are applying for a new job you better know how to sell yourself. If you can’t then better be prepared flipping burgers for a living or at least working in a position that is far below your potential and actual skills.

How you sell yourself, how you communicate your ideas and values to others is in direct relation to what you will get out of life. And besides the importance of Sales and negotiation people are to busy numbing down themselves watching television and distracting themselves with short internet clips and other adrenaline shots. (I hope I’m not talking about you!)

Personally Sales is my passion. I want to share my passion with you and hope you get a lot of Ideas and concepts to integrate in your own life and increase the quality of your life drasticly. Do you know your passion? I discovered mine recently. I will tell you specfics about it in an future post. What I want to tell you so far is that knowing your lifes purpose is an amazingly life enhanceing feeling.You feel on a mission. You know what do do on a daily basis. Progres is what makes you happy. And you are not a leave in the wind anymore. (I’ve been most of my life and I hated it!)

I am in the Sales Business.Not an expert by any means. Thats not a bad thing though as I will document my journey as open and transparent as possible. You are a part of my journey. The Internet as big. And people get together, share there experiences and are able to profit from each other in a win-win situation. I strongly hope that I increase your life quality with the post I write (as with podcasts and videos that I will most likely do in the future).

I have different businesses going on. Some I will not directly write about – offline businesses – but will share the psychological tools and mindsets of influence and persuation that I learned and use to make my and your sales profitable. Next to the tools and strategies of influence I will also share my online business journey. I started KDP (Kindle publishing) recently. However I saw relativly fast that this isn’t nesserely a business I am interested in. I have one book online and another one in the making. I don’t have passion for the books that I outsourced for people to write me. That makes it just a hassle to work on that business because I am not commited to the product.

FIND A HIGH-QUALITY PRODUCT THAT YOU BELIEVE IN AND GET THE WORD OUT

There you have it. The formala to riches. The formula to every succes you want to get in life. If you don’t believe in your product you will not be able to market it. I can’t. Some people can. But that’s NOT most people. And it’s probably not you. It’s not me and that is why I don’t put my energs in kindle publishing anymore. You need to believe in your product and have some sort of passion for it. Otherwise you will be one of the 99% of people that quit the online business fast.
Amazon FBA is my current business model. It is one that suits my personality and my passion. I love sales since I’m a child. Passive imcome. Giving high-value products and offering them a kick ass service. Just writing about it keeps the fire in my going.

You will read everything about my journey here. So far I did some emailing and calling with amazon since there were some problems with my account. I negotiated a good deal with a chinese company that gave me good conditions for the product of my choice. The next step is getting the barcode and shipping labels from amazon as well as letting my designer put my business logo and the barcode together. Then I am ready for the sales.

If you want to start getting into sales, generating A LOT of (passive income, be finacially free and in charge of your life follow these simple steps:

1. Get a HIGH-QUALITY product
2. Get the word out

Thats it. It is really that simple. What’s stopping you from starting today?

Staying Broke When Making Money

I am going to give you today the number one way to get rich. It is a step that you HAVE to follow if you want to have sustainable financial success in your life. Staying broke.

Probably everyone of us knows the feeling. We are getting a raise. We started a new business that gives us some extra money. Or won something gambleing. What do we do? Do we save it? Maybe. Maybe a small percentage of what we got. But certainly not a lot- And certainly not ALL of it.

How long do you want to take to actually get rich? To actually not worry about your finances anymore? To live the life of your dreams? You can get rich the slow way. Or you can do it the fast way. It is up to you. I suggest you to take the fast way to financial success.

“How do I take the fast way to financial success?”

You do it by staying BROKE. Notice I say broke not poor. You will massively increase your income. At the same time you will have the same expenses that you’ve ever had. Prefereably even lower ones!

Staying broke is the way to go. I did the same mistake each and every time I got money. I was spending it for useless shit. It didn’t matter how much money I made. At the end of the month I was alsways +/- 0 (after a modest amout of savings). My income increased and decreased during the year. The amount of money I had at the end of the month never did.

Until I decided to change something. I kept track of what I NEED to spend every month to have a decent life. Good (but fairly cheap) food, entrence for clubs, expenses for things like gym, transporation and mobile phone. I made sure those expenses are as low as possible.

Everything I made after my normal monthly expenses I SAVED. I didn’t spend the money, NO MATTER WHAT. My income increased and suddenly I had cashbundles laying around the house. Never violating my rule of staying broke.

If you ever want to have financial success. If you ever want to make and KEEP a lot of money, internalise the rule of staying broke! If you increase your income while staying broke at the same time you will get the financial success you desire in the shortest time possible.

If you like this post I HIGHLY encourage you to check out this book by Tony Robbins:

If you want to start your own Blog I recommend choosing Bluehost:

Are you ready to get results?: Ulimited Power Book Review

The book that is currently with me on my journey is the book Unlimited Power : The New Science Of Personal Achievement, by Tony Robbins.

This book is a dime piece when it comes to the self-development and personal acchivement categorie.

I think that we all learn certain lessons when we are ready for them. So I did with this book. I read it already a couple years back. The book seemed to contain only fluff and no specific actionable advise to me. However, years went by and my perception changed. Now I consider this book a must-read for anyone who is serious about getting results.

CHANGE IS POSSIBLE

This is probably the best way to describe what Tony Robbins wants us to show with this book. Change is possible. You can become exactly the person that you want to be.

All you need is the right mindset and strategies to accomplish your goals. Tony Robbins gives you the strategies and mindsets that he modeled by watching successful people and studying what made them who they are.

How do we accomplish what we want:
• We need Power
•  Awereness of our thoughts and physiologie
• The right strategies

We need power. Power means nothing else then taking charge of your own life. Taking charge of your own actions and building your destiny yourself.
Power is the ability to take action.

You can influence and change what you do and feel by changing your thoughts and your physiologie. By redirecting your focus on something positive instead of something negative you can influence your destiny and take positive action instead of being overwhelmed by the circumstances. Use your physiologie in a way that commonicates confidence and certainty to your subconcious and you will feel exactly those emotions.

We need the right strategies to accomplish our goals. And the best way to get those strategies is to >model< the strategies from other people. Meaning we look at what people did that are already sucessful and take similar action as they.

Those are some of the lessons of Tony’s Book. I will write future articles about some other concepts of his book, as well as a complete book review.

Until then I HIGHLY recommend you to check out his complete book here!

Exactly How To Make Money with Kindle Ebook Publishing – My Current Project: Part 1 –

What up, what up..?

Recently I discovered a new way to make some extra cash online. I am interested in ways to make money online since a long time now. It wasn’t until recently that I actually KNEW that it is possible to make TONS of it online though.

(A friend of mine is involved in affiliate marketing and I was visiting him in his new penthouse apartment.)

While I did some research about different “making money online” stuff before. It wasn’t to that day that I knew this is what I will be doing in my future.

While Affiliate Marketing was in my heared now the general idea of making money online made me think of something I have heared a while ago now and never really followed up with:

Making money with kindle publishing – specifically: Selling erotica on Amazon

I did some reasearch about it to see what things I have to pay attention to when entering that niche.

I don’t want to have any work with my project. While writing is something that I enjoy, I am only really interested in it when it is for topics that I enjoy writing about or to build my brand.

Writing erotica is nothing I want to do at this moment. (Might be doing it in the future.)

So all the work has to be OUTSOURCED. I will do the marketing because I enjoy it. But all in all this Project will be nearly 100% PASSIVE INCOME.

How do you make money selling erotica

I will get more specific about this in a furure post. But right know jut a quick overview on how I started:

1. Research a couple authors and books that sell

What are some known names in the industry? What books are selling good? What books have good reviews? Why are people buying it?

2. Do the marketing

Yes, marketing is in the beginning. Because you are not selling only some random content. But emotions and an image. Who is the author that writes such an book? What is his/her motivation? What is this story all about?

Think about how you want to appear to the world:
– What is the image of you/your pen name?
– Why are you, or is he/she writing erotica?
– What is your book about?

3. Get someone to write the ebook for you

You will outsource the work on a platform for writers and freelancers. I choose Upwork to search for someone writing mine.

All I did was including the plot for the story I want to have written and the money that I want to spend.

Now it is waiting time and I have to see who is applying for the offer..

I will keep you up to date on how the project devellops, how long it will take to have the book written, the quality of the book and ultimatly how much money it will earn me..

.. so stay tuned..!

Also: Have you ever written/published your own book on Amazon Kindle or a similar Platform? What Gernre was it? How much did you make? I am interested to hear your stories!

Be congruent to the person you want to BECOME

If you aren’t where you want to be in life. When you don’t get the results that you want to have, then it is time to change something. You need to BECOME someone else. Only then you can also GET what you want.

Change is hard though. Everything in your body will resist that change. You will procrastinate and trick yourself into believing that you are “taking action”. Even though all you do is sitting around watching YouTube.

Strong commitment is required to make lasting change. You act now through the person you want to be. That is how you actually become that person.

How to make lasting change:
1. Know who you want to be
2. Behave like you already are that person

Fake it till you make it is the sentence to internalise in this case.

Building my empire

What have been the magazines now is the blog. What was the Television is now YouTube. It is a new era. Gone are the old times. And this is wonderful. Because everytime there is a new era. There are new ways to make money. Blogging is one of them. Making Videos is one of them. Doing podcasts is one of them. All of it is a fantastic way of making money while simultaniously expressing oneselfs ideas to the world.

There is a concept called You.Inc. Builing the brand of yourself. You are making money with your own Brand. With who you are. I do like this fact a lot. Because I always wanted to get paid for being me. Today I have the opportunity.

I finished reading an incredebly written and very motivating post: http://www.financialsamurai.com/how-to-build-passive-income-for-financial-independence/

Let me give you the gist that I got out of it:
1. Predetermine your financial goals (How much money do you need a month to be happy?)
2. Put as much money on the side as you can
3. Safe and Invest that money and NEVER touch it
4. Work on some bigger project while simultaniously investing (i.e. building your brand, blogging, youtube) and get some more money

Repeat that circle and you will be pretty much guaranteed to be successful. What I like about that formula is that it is easy and actually applicable for everyone.

I am doing the following now to get a step closer to my financial goals..
.. I have 750 bucks safed (my savings since I started my journey ~1 month ago)
.. I have 70 bucks invested in something that will return me 150 bucks
.. I need to call a new client that is interested in getting tutoring lessons with me (been procrastinating on that all the time)
.. I am building my brand as I am writing this post here right now

That is what I do to get closer to my dreams. What do you do?

My financial week and next weeks goals

Okay, so I had a pretty good time financially the last two weeks. I managed to get a couple pojects going that gave me some extra income. The last two weeks my main focus wasn’t to make a lot of money that I actually had to work for. But more so finding way to get some passive income streams going. The money I got was from projects that I “ran into” as well as some stuff that I had going for me since a couple months now. Note that all my living expenses are covered already. So everything I earn, I keep.

Income:

– 250€ Doing subtitels for a friend’s video product
– 100€ Bday gift
– 20€ Bday gift
– 15€ Filming a friend for a video product
– 60€ Tutoring

So in total I made 445€ in the last two weeks. A nice little side income. But some of it are birthday gifts (120€). So I obviously can’t be proud of it. I definatly have to find some more ways to get income streams going.

My plan for the comming week is:
• Write a Sales Letter for “the millionaires fastlane” by M.J. DeMarco
• Get a doctors certificate that I need
• Think of 10 new business ideas that can earn me some passive income

I am really driven. The time has come to make some good money. Money is a really important part of life. No matter if you value it or not. Or how much you value it. Money is FREEDOM. And freedom in my opinion is the most important thing in life.

There are two things that I am earning and saving money for:

Goals: 50.000 € for a special “toy” that I need more then anything else in my life
50.000 € for in apartment in a city in europe I want to live in

Do or die. I will either accomlish those goals or die. Straight up. It is a 100k in total. A sum that shouldn’t take that long to earn. Getting by was always my main focus up to this point though. Never making money (at least no SERIOUS attempt to do so). So I wil need some time to figure it out. I will give myself a deadline of 2 years to accomplish my financial goal. 2 years. From this day. In 2 years I will have 100.000 bucks and I will be able to fulfill the two goals I have.

Sertralin – Antidepressents

I am officially on antidepressents now. Sertralin is the medication I get. The diagnose I got is bi-polar disorder. It makes sense. Because I had really harsh mood swings since I am around 16 years old. Turning from someone that  felt ugly and having extremly low self-esteem to someone who is overly self-confidcent and talks about nothing but how he is the shit and will conquer the world. I am 5 days into taking my medication. And I have already some observations about the medicament. Especially regarding it’s side effects.
I took my first pill on the 14.06 at 16 o’clock. Around 30 – 60 minutes later I already felt some of its effects. I felt numb and weird. I couldn’t really talk and couldn’t really smile normally. Later I became massive mood swings. A friend of mine told me that I appear as if I took some drugs like ecstasy or ketamin. I had to laugh for no reason all the time.

Yesterday I took a walk through the city with a friend. I couln’t talk normally. Every time I said something it felt really weird and unnatural. Most of the time I was not talking at all and just felt weird.

Today I started with a lower dosis then usual. My normal dosis was 50 mg. Today I started with 25 mg. I upped the dosis a few hours later. I had the normal dose of 50 mg in my body again. Later I upped it once more. So I had 75 mg of sertralin in my body. The medication throw me off completly. I was tired as never before and slept as if someone drugged me. Two hours later I woke up. It felt like I was sleeping for ages though. Right now I am feeling better then the last days. Still kind of weird though.

Since starting to take this medicament 4 days ago I have had intense mood swings that switch every hour, no appetite that was followed by an really intense appetite, insomia and feeling weak the entire day. I also felt barely any emotions. No matter what I was doing. And I can not have a basic conversation. Which is rather unusual for me because I normally talk quite a lot.

How Overdosing Changed my Life In a Positive Way – Death Gave Me Life

I have never really been a tea drinker. When I was younger I avoided everything that seemed to be healthy. Drinking 2-3 Liters of Coca-Cola everyday simply made me feel better. Maybe not long-tearm. But certainly short-tearm. It was an addiction actually. My mood decreased when I haven’t had my bottle of cola next to me and I even became agressive.

It was not after I got to know my (now) ex-girlfriend that I started to get a little more concious about the way I eat. She was a tea addict and literally drank it all day long. No matter if it was in the morning. The night. For lunch. For dinner. No matter what the time was she made a tea for herself. Being with her I kind of started getting in the habit of it too. After a while she gave me a clear suggestion that I actually should start to drink some more green tea. All I was doing at that time was going to nightclubs and taking every drug under this sun. My eating habits sucked and I wasn’t really sleeping that much. So drinking a cup of tea once in a while didn’t seem to be the worst idea in the world.

I started becomming more (a little) healthier in general. And the tea actually gave me some kind of balance in my otherwise completly fucked up and unconcious lifestyle. My other habits started to change too. And I went to the gym more often and started to eat a little bit healthier. That lasted for a little bit. Then eventually everything fell of the place again. I left my girlfriend. my eating sucked. I was spending way to much money. Went clubbing litarally every day. And I took drugs constantly.

After I left my girlfriend completly (before it was kind of “officially unofficial” – if that makes sense) I went out again. I was angry as fuck that day. I bought a pill. Took half of it. And went to talk to this cute chick that was staring at me all the time. I took the other half. Then another pill. I went to buy some more with the girl that I was hanging out with. 3 more. I took them all that day but didn’t got high.

The come down has been really fucked up though. Like two days later I started. Three days later I was depressed as fuck. I didn’t even know the reason why, until my friend gave me a clue – “uhh.. maybe because of the 5 x you took on sunday??!”. Well.. maybe he was right. I haven’t had a down like this for so long. It was probably more then a year ago that I felt that depressed.

During that peroid I spend most of my time after with a girl that I got to know not long before. We went smoking, I could share all my depressive stories with her and I fucked her a couple times without a condom (she was on the pill but it was still a very stupid decision looking back). However spending time with her really helped me. She showed me how purposeless my life really is and that I need a goal in life. Instead of spending all my time getting fucked up as a form of escapism. She was right!

Slowly I started to adapt healthier habits. I listened to some good self-development tapes. Started reading books. Haven’t been going that often anymore. Stopped taking drugs. Took on some healthier eating habits. I did all kinds of Supplements. And I started to go to the gym again.

The effects this had on my life were drastic. I was in a better mood. Hell, I was in a good mood pretty much constantly. My self-confidence improved and was back to normal again. I was able to concentrate better then ever. I was finally curious about the world again and I was able to retain more knowledge then I ever could before in my life. I felt better. I outlined what I want out of my life. And I took action in the direction I wanted to.
I will write more about what specificly I did to change my mood/my habits/my life so drasticly in furture posts. I am realy happy with the direction that I am taking at the moment. And I will keep you posted about my journey. Sometimes it just takes a depressed day or week to change your life completly. The depressed week I had after leaving my girlfried was probably the best thing that happened in my life.

My Trip to Frankfurt – Embracing Masculinity

And here we go! I am leaving my beautiful and lovely city and go to Frankfurt for a few days. Why am I doing so? A friend of mine who is a dating coach is going there. He has a Client from Frankfurt who wants him to come to his city and work on his pick up skills. My friend wrote me yesterday at 11 pm.:

“btw do you wanna come with me to Frankfurt?”
“Sounds cool. When you wanna go?”
“In like 4 hours.”
“haha”

I was really bemused by his spontaniety. However this was a little bit to short tearm for me.
Especially because I had to pick up something that day from the pharmacy.

I also had to think about it. Do I really want to go to Frankfurt? What will I do there? Do I like the city enough? Is it cool enough for me?
Well, what I dislike more then making a stupid decision is regretting something that I did not do. Also nothing is really stopping me at the moment. I have no commitments. And I have the freedom to travel as well as some money to do so. The only thing I am busy with at the moment are girls and my Blog. Well, I can write my Blog from everywhere (I’m doing in in the bus right now). There are chicks ready to be picked up in pretty much every city around the world. So that isn’t really a problem either.
And I fucking like to experience something new!! The thing that conviced me in the end though was going to this kind of shady city and having some cool experiences with my friend. Especially with this friend. I like hanging out with him and I can learn a lot from him. I am really blocking myself at the moment. I just want to get one area of my life handled. Probably the hardest area that I ever had to face. My social life. Or to put it more accurately: My Sex Life. I don’t live a life of choice. And that means I am a slave. Everyone assums that I am such a pimp and so good with girls. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. I am still just a scared little boy. That is all that I am. I don’t have choice. I have a lot of anxiety. And I am extremly reliant on other peoples approvel. I get lucky once in a while with girls that choose me.

But this is NOT what I want. I want to get the girls I desire. I want to have A LOT of choice. And I want to align my self-image with reality. And I will do it during the next couple days. And my friend will help me with it.

I will face my fears. I will get the fear of rejection out of my system and be able to approach the girls that I want whenever I want. I want to bang hot girls CONSITENTLY. And I want to KNOW for myself that I can get laid WHENEVER I want to do so.

So the Action-Plan for the next 3 days is:
1. Hanging out with my friend
2. Approaching a lot of hot girls
3. Faceing my fear of rejection and getting over my anxiety
4. Getting all the information I possibly can out of my friends head into mine

I will face my fears and devellop as a person on that trip. If I don’t fuck a girl and don’t get over my anxiety I will just kill myself. Seriously. It is time to be that cool and social guy that I always wanted to be. It is time to transform to the person that I already am. And that actually comes more natural to me than this weird persona that I choose to embody right now. Fuck that. I want to fuck and get girls on the regular. I want to have choice, abundance and what I want out of life.

When I am back from this trip I am a new man. I will go to Poland directly after and practise my new learned skills on the cute polish girls. I will bang those sluts until my dick falls of.
