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.

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.

How to make money in the future – Building your own brand

Money is a topic that everyone is concerned with. After all, what is as important as money? Good relationships and health one could answer to that question. However I doubt you can sustain a good relationship to your kids when you don’t make enough money to feed them. I doubt it is good for your mental health when you live paycheck to paycheck and have the constant worry of getting replaced at your job.

These days everyone has to TAKE CHARGE of their own life. No one else will support you. You are on your own. And you have to be an creative and active thinker to strive in this chaotic world we live in.

You need different income streams for sure. Otherwise you won’t make it. Sources of income streams would be:
• a job
• real estate that you own and rent out
• stocks
• bonds
• your own business

A specific form of a way that EVERYONE can make their own money is something that I like to call YOU.INC. That is, building your own brand that revolves around your personality, your passions and your interest.

The good thing about building a business like that is that no one can really replace you. There is only one person in the world that is you. And that is YOU.

What do you need to build an YOU.INC:
1. Be yourself
2. Live a life
3. Express yourself so people can find you (Blog or Youtube)
4. Learn to market yourself to people
5. Sell a product or service

It is that simple. Build your personality. Know what you want and what you stand for. Then you will have a message to share. You share this message with people and learn to market yourself in a good way. More and more people will follow your message and want to be a part of you and your project. At the end you can sell your product or service to people. When they love you, they will also love to support you with their money. There are Youtubers and Bloggers that make MILLIONS these days. Even if this might not be your goal. Supplementing your income by having your own business that revolvs around being you is something that you can be pround of and have some fun with. Start today. Build a website. Build a blog. Learn what your readers want and market it to them. Then lean back and count your cash.

Publishing videos is very simple. Simply create an account and start filming.

The best platform to upload videos is:

https://www.youtube.com/

If you want to start a blog. And you certainly should have one. Whether it is your main way to reach people or just a supplement to your channel. Everyone should “own their own name” on the internet.

I recommend starting a blog with Bluehost:

New economy – We are all getting replaced

Time is changing. So is the world. Everything is faster these days. And everything is different too. There is no other place where this development is as obvious as in the job market. With the internet the old economy as we knew it will not exist for to long anymore. Jobs will not be the same because everything today happens in the internet.

The first cars that drive themselves are out already. Meaning that no one will need people to drive a taxi anymore in the near future. You don’t need to pay someone to drive you if the car can do it by itself.

This development happens and will continue to happen everywhere. Why would you go shopping when you can buy everything on the internet?

And the jobs that are still there will be outsourced to people who do a better job for a smaller amout of money.

I hope you learned to fill out documents in your university classes. Because soon you will need this skill to fill out the papers for your unemployment benefits..

We live in a great time. A chaotic time. With as much opportunity as never before. But to get anything out of it you have to change your thinking today and make progress every single day.

The time to take action is now. Take charge of your live and you will accomplish tremendous things.

Progress Thread

So I’ve been out yesterday. In tearms of girls I had the shittiest night in a long time. Even though my original intention to go out was just to push my low self-esteem when I go out. By getting some girls to love me. It wasn’t really working yesterday. Partly because of bad luck (girls were not really availeble). And the other part was my washy mood and with that my bad vibe/lack of skill (to pushy, giving up to fast and so on). Mostly it was bad luck though and the girls just weren’t availeble. A lot of them were young and bitchy too. The young age is actually why I don’t really like to go to this club I’ve been at. There were two girls in the venue that I have already fucked though. So I ended up going home with one of them. The other one wrote me a message today. I will meet her on the weekend.

In tearms of business I made some good profits. I made 50 bucks in an hour or so. My net profit is a little bit more then 25 bucks. And I made some good new lessons on how to be a good sales person. It’s all about building rapport. You just chat up people in a nice and friendly way. You have genuinly good intentions and just vibe with them. Thats what a good sales peron does. No convincing. No hard sells. None of that shit. I also made some good connections and might make some more $$$ today.

My to do list for today is:
– tutoring lessons
– recording two voice over samples for upwork (one in english, one in my native tongue)
– recording a sample for a project I apllied to and the people were interested and wanted to have a sample
– buying a couple more broken phones and sell them for profit

Today in the evening I have a date as well. So I am on a tight schedule today. And I absolutly love it 😉

Daily Steps

Most of my life I had a hard time following and tracking my goals. Still have. Responsible for it is my ADD. Right now is pretty much the first time in my life that I have goals I actually believe in though. Following up is a must. While I don’t know how the stars align and everything will turn out ultimatly. What I can control is my actions.

There is two things I want to accomplish:

What do I want:
1. Making a lot of money
2. Banging 100 chicks

Why do I want this: Because I want to be the person that I always wanted to be.

What are the steps that I need to do to accomplish that
– Getting better at my skills:
• Writing
• Marketing
• Banging and retaining girls
• Investing money

How do I accomplish that:
To sum everything up in one word: Progress
Everything that hinders me from making progress (lack of motivation, concentration, non defined goals) are obstacles that will be blown away. I will find solutions to takle all of them.

The timetable would look the following:
4 hours a day invested in making money
4 hours a day invested in girls (actively picking up/dates etc.)
1 hour a day reading on my topics

My specific goals:
1. Having 100.000 € cash (50k for an operation, the other 50k for an apartment that I want to buy)
2. Having slept with 100 girls, as well as retaining 4 fuckbuddies for at least 6 months (6+ on my scale)

What are the daily steps that I take to accomplish those goals:
1. Having 100.000 € in Cash:
• building my brand by writing an article or recording a video/podcast
• learning about marketing
• recording a sample for a voice-over (for upwork voice-over gigs)
• writing a sample sales letter (for upwork copy writing gigs)
• get a new Product to sell on my blog and write a sales page (Bathmate)
• taking a step towards some side gig that will bring me money (e.g. buying a car to work as a ueber driver)
• apply for 5 Upwork jobs
• writing a sales page for some offline hustle (e.g. tutoring ads)
• buy something for a low and sell it for a higher price (make at least 50 bucks on it)

2. Banging and retaining girls:
– approaching 5 girls
– being on a date with a new girl (girl that I got to known in the streets/the club)
– going on a date with a girl I already know (day 2 / fuckbuddy)
– finding a solution for a sticking point that I have
– get the girl to get more emotionally invested in you

Deadlines:
12 months – banging 100 chicks and retaining for of them (deadline: 01.07.2016)
24 months – having 100.000 in cash (deadline: 01.07.2018)

I will keep myself accountable by having this blog as well as having my own little notebook to keep my daily progress.

No luck needed if controlable variables are involved.

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.
