I do have self guilt of not working 12h a day towards my goals.
I feel like my work ethic is weak and could be better.

I do have realistic plans to make a lot of money. Im on a right path, but feeling guilt of not working every hour of the day feels horrible.

I know i need to give it my all, but i also dont want to go crazy.
Is it possible to go big, if i work like half of the day and rest do something else not related to fastlane?

Thanks

12 hour is decently hardcore, considering if you need to sleep 8 hours, that leave other four hours for admin matters, exercise and relaxation.

You already hitting the reasonable limit.

The limiting factor shouldn’t be hours it should be your own biology.

No point pushing 16 hours for a few days only to collapse and rest the next few days. You end up even working less hours.

Just skimmed through your introduction, here's some quick thoughts I had. IMO I would skip the personal branding/becoming famous and focus on your business/branding with the pencils, pens, paints, brushes. Maybe focus on one product and making it a great option for anyone who is looking for a next-level product in that space.

What are the problems people are having in this space? For example, I saw an ad for a marker on Youtube the other day that pointed out their markers won't seep through paper onto the next page, and can be seen clearly on top of black/dark surfaces. They sold the markers in a kit with lots of colours to use.

No clue who owns the business or created the ad. No famous person attached. The owner of the business may not have had their hand in any of it asides from giving the OK and throwing money at it. If anything, create the product and give samples to influencers who already have a fanbase, give them a great affiliate program to advertise on their pages.

Read through some of the high value threads here or read the books more.

There are few problems with that. Brand of one good product is a good idea, but i need money to start production and have some people who know how to scale it, fix other problems like shipping, quality, enough product etc...
(not much of a option for 21yo brokie like me)

Right now my situation is set to sell my talent in form of art through auction and exhibiton planned in mall with help of successful person. Through that make some first money and then work on second step which is scaling it with one product brand mentioned above. You might be right, that getting famous is not necessary. Make some small money by selling art and then i would be able to afford some form of start in business.
