It’s not as crazy as it sounds.

I’m clearly insane. Right?

Maybe. But I’d rather set seemingly insane goals for myself as opposed to ones that I know I can knock out. Goals you know you can accomplish aren’t goals, they're just tasks, and while tasks get the job done they don’t force growth.

Go big or go home. Set insane goals for yourself and even if you fall short you’ll still have made progress. Physical, mental, and financial.

In this post I discuss breaking seemingly impossible problems down into manageable chunks, how I apply this technique to my financial goals, detail my plan to generate an additional $100K, and walk…


It’s harder than you think, but not difficult at all.

I’ve read many stories about entrepreneurship and making money on Medium, written by people with amazing profiles, and impressively actionable calls to action that take you to nice websites used to collect my email.

Just yesterday I read one, and left a simple comment: “Are you a millionaire?” which drew some attention, but no response from the author. Another reader responded to my comment and pointed me to where I could read more about the author of the story.

I’m not here to bash anyone, I’m here to read and learn. But if I’m spending my precious time trying to…

Aim small, miss small.

Ever since I was a young boy, I’ve loved earning my own money. Paper route, pizza delivery, lawn mowing, etc. My goals were simple, make enough money to buy the crap I wanted that my parents (rightfully so) wouldn’t waste their money on.

As I grew older, I had similar financial goals: make enough money to put a little away each month for a down payment on a house, be able to make the house payment, buy a car, take a vacation now and then, etc.

Nothing wrong with that.

In my early 20’s, I learned that I’d been thinking…

And a few other things you should never tell me

No? Then why are you doing it? And what exactly are you doing, because no one can tell.

We all do something for either money or fun, vocations and avocations. Those that are truly fortunate can make money doing what they love.

So why does it feel forced sometimes? Who are you telling this story to? I’m more than happy to listen or to read, but if you’re putting a vibe out in the world because you want feedback, then here it is:

Don’t tell me what you’re going to do. Show me.

There’s something to be said for suffering in silence, but if you want us to feel you…

I’ve been so heads down focused on my Google SERP rankings that I completely neglected Amazon as an SEO powerhouse. I love content marketing and selling stuff online, and since…

I published “Stop Paying People to Teach You How to Write” but failed to make the subtle distinction between writing and the business of writing.

Nikole Mitchell earns anywhere from $30,000 to $100,000 per month on OnlyFans. She also created an additional income stream by selling coaching and courses on her website. She is proof that individuals working alone can create a life-changing income stream using platforms to build a community.

I discovered Nikole when the following headline in the NY Post put the breaks on my morning scroll:

Former church pastor now makes $100K a month as life-coaching stripper.

But how does she do it?

She’s a life-changer for herself and others.

She’s making the world a more beautiful place.

Nikole earns more money in a month than most people do in…
