    Children's Book Publishing... WOW?!

    My wife is in this niche, but more towards the toddler age. She is self publishing on Amazon; Amazon prints the physical copies when the book is ordered and ships, the book costs the buyer $6.99, when it's all said and done she takes about $1 per book. She found a great illustrator on Fiverr...

    NOTABLE! The Definite Guide to Productized Services

    Thanks for the great write up Unreal. This productized service idea is similar to an insurance model. You really make the most money when they do NOT use your service, what a shift in mindset. Thanks for the links to tropical mba podcast, I listened to Dan Norris' voicemail from one the...

    Will smoking weed make me lazy/hurt my (good) mindset?

    Honestly, smoking weed has been by far the BIGGEST thing holding me back from taking action. It was great at the time for dreaming up grand plans but then at some point all I did was dream, with no execution. Everyone is different but like you it made me VERY lazy. I have an addictive...

    Will smoking weed make me lazy/hurt my (good) mindset?

    I'd def recommend NOT, I REPEAT NOT, eating cannabis as a newbie. It is very easy to over-do it. You'll be in a BAD place for a long time with no escape hatch.

    Will smoking weed make me lazy/hurt my (good) mindset?

    Don't smoke, it'll kill your ambition, everything will seem fine at first, and you will trick yourself into thinking it is doing your business no harm, but slowly it will change your personality and take the "fire from your belly". It makes you very comfortable with your situation, not what you...

    EXECUTION [Progress] Watch me escape the 9-5 grind, and free myself from indentured time

    I understand that, but those are the tools that we work with, it would be very inefficient to build something myself from scratch when I can use one of these tools and have 95% of the work done already. My thinking is that even though these solutions exist, a lot of small business owners have no...

    EXECUTION [Progress] Watch me escape the 9-5 grind, and free myself from indentured time

    I feel like I was wasting a lot of time "searching" for a need instead of working on myself, improving my skills. By improving my mindset, technical skills, and soft skills, that need, that product, or service will be more easily observed from a higher vantage point. I mean look at Fox, he...

    EXECUTION [Progress] Watch me escape the 9-5 grind, and free myself from indentured time

    Thanks for your input. I understand there is no fast lane in freelance web development, however my hope is that it will detach from my time one day. I really don't have a good answer to any of those questions you asked. My current strategy is to get started working with businesses, working on...

    EXECUTION [Progress] Watch me escape the 9-5 grind, and free myself from indentured time

    I have been GRINDING every day, with the limited free time I have outside of work, family responsibilities, etc. I haven't updated in a while because I have been so busy. My productivity has improved since I started waking up at 5am, everyday, weekends too, and starting the day stretching...

MY CURRENT SITUATION: -Full time employee(ugh) working as a SW developer for 6 years now. -Family man with small kids (very little time to work on escaping the 9-5 grind, 1-2 hours night + several...

I will start a progress thread and stop being such a lurker without contributing. And I hope to be at the 2020 FL Summit! [EDIT] Did the...

    NOTABLE! What's the difference between Slackers and Go Getters? The answer may have to do w/ brain chemistry.

    Oh and another big thing was stopping drinking booze and smoking the hoo-ha, I was waking up way too groggy and it just slows me down all around, mentally, physically. Meditate, too to kill the stress and anxiety. All these have probably already been mentioned but I didn't read anything.

    OFF-TOPIC Does MJ have a wife?

    Social media has caused so many serious issues in my relationships. In this day and age I would never get married again. It can be very distracting having to worry about what your mate is doing online, especially if she is an attention wh*re. (guys can be categorized as such too, not just...

    NOTABLE! What's the difference between Slackers and Go Getters? The answer may have to do w/ brain chemistry.

    I didn't read a single post in this thread but wanted to chime in... I noticed when I change my food intake to eating more whole non-processed foods, less sugar, and a little more caffeine( black, no sugar ), and exercise everyday, I become a go getter.

    Which website builder should I use?

    WP is the way to go, and if you go with Wordpress you may want to go right for WP 5 with the Gutenberg web builder already baked in. I think it is released... Otherwise if you implement any custom functionality like plugins, it may not be backwards compatible with the new WP 5 update with Gutenberg.

    Man those things look like fun MJ, you can drink without fear of the po-po or hurting others, or even your self with that roll cage. Hope you have a blast. My plans, go to the beach, and catch up with my little ones after the long exhausting work week, and use the free time in between those...
