    Picked up another client, I've noticed I've overlooked a few small things, #1 raking and sweeping, #2 those crappy weeds between sidewalks on someone's property, the corner of a wall ( I don't have a weed trimmer) there's so many tiny things I overlook, a good lesson on learning, there is a million different aspects in any buisness that can be ignored, I think tiny things can really make a big difference when (as a custoner) Another example would be mcdonalds and Starbucks in regards to custoner service. Think il do another client today then tommorow check out a book by Felix Dennis, still waiting for unscripted! Also ran into a local billionaire, who unofficially invited me out to go hiking. Will do a small update soon

    tried a little experiment, bought a bunch of glow sticks and dressed up wearing them, trying to advertise a local rave thats coming up within the next month, cold approached people on the street trying to direct traffic to my fb page (little side thing i tinker with that ive mentioned on page 1 or 2, anywhoo noone gives a crap about getting free stuff, im offering free concert tickets yet i have barely any traffic, so ive oversimplified fb marketing and the difficulty. doesnt really matter to much, but was just something i wanted to try, i did manage to sell a glowstick for $5 after purchasing it for $2

    ironically enough from someone trying to promote his restaurant! funny thing someone jumped into our convo and tried to sell us glowsticks ha!

    on to landscaping, ive been going around on a longboard throughout the neighborhood taping small & simple flyers to peoples doors, best case scenario for me is my phone blows up all day and i get more and more clients, happy to combine a passion of mine with 'work'.

    as ive had some experience in a service industry im thinking (this will be done monday) of scoping out apartment complex's and pitching my services to them, not sure whats best, thinking cold calling or just showing up in person myself which would probably be more optimal.

    for a fun little side project im trying to sell a festival shirt i produced.. had an idea in my head of making a following on fb (page) which is ofc failing.. to sell merchandise. on to the hustle..

    thought id mention the book of Felix Dennis How To Get Rich, he is the founder of Maxim & amassed a fortune of $400m+ im almost done that book and its been a very good read, strongly recommend it.

    have a good sunday!

    You should get some goats and tell people that you use them to cut grass. Something like a green grass cutting business. No pollution, no emmisions, 100% natural grass cutters. That'll be like your business gimmick do you want goats or the gas mower. And call the news stations they like weird stuff like that.

    well no calls, no emails **** dropped off a ton of flyers and nada, made a cold call today to an apartment and was rejected, will do some more tomorrow and go around the neighborhood and try to find some dam clients

    also went out for a hike with a self made billionaire today, had some interesting talks. the biggest thing i took from it was to enjoy your life, but this is a massive conundrum (easy for him to say right!?) basically stop and smell the roses, we as entrepreneurs...well some of us! work work work, make sure to stop every once in a while and appreciate the beauty of life, sacrifices and risks need to be made of course. you can lose your mind chasing the $ , health is very important! goal setting is key aswell. (wheres the ***** boat sailing to!?!?!?)

    still waiting for unscripted ffs!!!!

    just a thing on my mind, my eventual fast lane goal which requires a small amount of $ is currently being executed by someone currently atm, theyve partnered up with a large brand that invested about $15m.

    so, ''my idea'' is certainly valid, and as I build myself up I will be eventually competing / co-existing with this other brand.
    toying with the small execution of hosting an event, have the possibility of maybe making a small amount that I can scale. less talking more doing!

    should be fun. lets see how i do! within the next few weeks I should be good to go

    pondering my next steps, right now focusing on growing my client list bigger and bigger but what about winter? ive done something and created a very small income for myself. still not driving a lamborghini! but hustling a few dollars is a good feeling.

    i feel as if i want to go for a full out sprint but there are no paved trails so im cutting them down with my lawnmower...(haw haw)

    ive been trying to get sales for an item, no dice... will keep going at that, sales is the ultimate fastlane

    back to the grind

    no sales... :( reading unscripted and will go advertise more flyers in a different city for lawncare.

    really like the idea of online sales although its been quite tough, been offering a product in a niche to people on face book that have liked a certain page and no sales at all.
