I didn't hit $40 today because I run out of work. But before tomorrow, I plan to cover all the research for tomorrow's topics.

Amazon is a waiting game as expected. What worries me is where save the money. I store it in Paypal with no accounts connected, so they can freeze the amount anytime. Not fun.

Why do you not have any accounts connected to your Paypal?
it's a long story, but the short explanation is... bad luck (and preparation).
- My IDs expired last month
- The pandemic has delayed the process for several months
- I cannot verify PayPal without an ID (I can still store in a bank account though)​
The best solution I see right now is to create temporal PP accounts and play with that. While hoping that the council gets the problem solved fast. For unverified accounts, PP freezes your account after you cross a certain limit, which is around $1800.​
I don't know if some of you contacted Paypal recently, but they take decades to respond.​

Things are going decent so far. I wonder what the next challenge should be...

As everything gets ready for the inventory, I've found other costs that may arise:
- Freight forwarder shipping fees(~$100)
- PPC Budget for the launch ($300-$400)
- Photographer ($100) (includes sending sample to them)
- Reviews ($120 for twelve commissions)
- Coupon code budget (~$300)
- Inventory Inspectors ($200)

My conservative number says I should rack up around $2720 by time time I decide to launch. Good news is, I only need about $1800 ready for now. The rest can wait until it ships (~1month).

Completing the launch by mid-September sounds realistic. That's still enough time before November's 2020 global crash.

Happy Monday!

Done for today. I don't have much to say, except that I spent more time on research.

Today, I'd like to share the article I'm currently working on. I believe many of you will find it invaluable: Mind tricks to persuade/influence/manipulate.




"Do you ever think about what you think about? Seriously. Do you consider yourself an
independent thinker?"

If I want to keep progress stable for tomorrow, I'll need to work a bit more to cover the research today.

I couldn't sleep this night, and deprivation will affect my brain today. I've decided to cover the minimum and complete the pending research. Everything should be alright tomorrow.

No results for three days (my client is on vacation). I will definitely boost my productivity once everything is back on track. Luckily, I already have all the money I need, and those red numbers technically remain in my bank account yet.

Also expecting the sample which should arrive today. I have some final research work for the product improvements.

...And today we finally break the negative trend. Not only the client returned with more content, but another old client came back too. Today will be Research day.

I'm a bit confused with the sample. FedEx shows it as Delivered. However, nobody called my number, they didn't ask anybody to sign the parcel or anything like that. I'll need to figure out where it's right now :S

As you can see, my priority hasn't been raising the numbers.

I'm trying a better routine to stay more focused. Instead of splitting my day in blocks, I do one day of writing and another for coding. I started three days ago, and I feel like making far more progress. I no longer need to spend energy switching tasks or thinking of something else. It may reduce my productivity overall (more time = less urgency), but at least I'm present at work.

Here's the most recent update.

If it looks like I'm slacking, it's because I'm doing three different things at once. Glad to see things moving at least : )

I should be about to order that FBA inventory

You really have to charge more. That's way too cheap for so much content. Try pitching higher when you get new leads. You already have "stable" clients. Try to get a better client now.

Good luck. I'm following your thread. Just to let you know :D

The last time I tried I got a 5.5cent/word, but he asked for at least 4 revisions per article. I guess I just had bad luck and should keep pitching others.

Once the inventory ships, I'll have plenty of time to pitch.
