How many times have you said you’re going to do that thing. You know, that one. The one you keep talking about. The one you keep saying you’ll do someday. But as the months (and let’s face it, years have progressed) little to no progress has been made. Trust me, I’m qualified to talk about this because often my […]
I first wrote this post way back in 2014. At the time, I struggled to get through two weeks of waking up at 6am every day. Well, what a difference a few years make, now my 6am wake up is pretty much standard. I want to share how I got started on the road to […]
The hardest thing a freelancer can do is take action. I’m talking real action. Not doing research, not reading your emails or checking Facebook. With rare exceptions, none of that adds up to anything. In fact, it’s a great way to procrastinate while convincing yourself that you are taking action. Nope, I mean behind in your […]

He has also agreed to give away one Pavlok 2 device to a commentor below. So take 30 seconds and let […]
You know the saying “you can have anything you want, you just can’t have everything you want?” For the most part, I believe this. If you all you want is to own a Ferrari, you can get there – actually relatively easily – but in order to do that you’ll have to sacrifice something else. But […]
Lots of freelancers talk about their typical day. It’s usually filled with some combination of calls or webinars, checking emails, client work, and most likely, a healthy dose of procrastination. Procrastination, you say? “Never! I sit down at my laptop for 7 hours a day, how is that procrastinating?” Well, pretty easily, frankly. Here’s one example […]
