OH SO TIRED

I apologize for the lack of REAL meaty, how-to posts you guys desire (and face it, it’s the only thing you want anyway).

To quickly update.  For the first time in my LIFE I’ve hired a full time virtual assistant.  So far… so good.  I have more time for myself which means AFTER work this is what I do:

1) Drive down the hill to go indoor rock climbing at a Hanger 18 (upland, rancho).  I can do V2+’s now!

2) Spend hours and hours after midnight talking to manufacturers in China (Because I want to start an import company).

3) Spending hours creating new training for my VA.

4) Spending hours listening/learning from online modules by David Siteman Garland teaching me how to Create An Awesome Course Online (Because that’s also want to do).  I have subscribers for my software company (of which I am a co-founder) BUT it’s not nearly at the level it can be and I really want to spend the next months pushing it to the next level.

5) Spend more time meeting random strangers at meetup groups (Because … I want to!).

With more free time I basically exhaust myself almost completely with physical exertions of mental exertions and then I crash hard.  No one is forcing me to do anything.  Everything I want to do, I do it because I can.

I also sleep almost all day sometimes on Saturdays… because I want to [notice the theme here? the UNDERLYING theme?].  Here is a verbal explanation of my current life: ME ME ME ME ME ME ME I WANT TO I WANT TO I WANT TO. I WANT TO CLIMB. I WANT TO GO TO THE BEACH. I WANT TO GO TO THE FAIR. I WANT MORE. HERE LET ME TREAT YOU OUT BECAUSE I CAN. HERE LET ME TREAT MYSELF OUT BECAUSE I DESERVE IT. ME ME ME ME ME ME. YOU? OKAY, SURE. BACK TO ME. [My friend recently had a something similar.. a stream of conscience of some sort… and I decided it was pretty damn accurate of my situation as well… so I shamelessly copied her (Credit to Robin Tran)].

After a cup of sake + frozen strawberries to cap off the night.

After a cup of sake + frozen strawberries to cap off the night. Notice the eye goop? Good.

I’m learning how to love myself more and not having to worry so much about money (now) is such a blessing in almost all aspects of my damn life.

Sales dipped a little for the auto dismantling company but I spent a lot of time training vs. listing (to FREE myself!) so it was worth it.  I want to be free. I want to stop trading hours for dollars, dammnit.

Some screenshots that were relevant to my life below.  And that’s it!  Because I’m tired & I want to go to sleep.

I promise I PROMISE I will find time to post something relevant.  For now the most relevant thing I can tell you guys is:

1) I’m starting an import company.

2) I am going to start an online course THE RIGHT WAY (with the right softwares).  By the way, why does wordpress auto correct me when I type softwareS?  Is software not SUPPOSED to be plural? What?

3) I’m in the process of slowly and surely automating my auto dismantling company so it can run without me.  I’m taking the steps, sir!

4) I find that with financial stability I love myself A LOT MORE. (Free drinks on me!)  I want more than this provincial life!! (to be honest, this life is rather insane already).

5) I’m becoming more and more involved with different communities,I’m enjoying giving free advice left and right to help whoever I can and even though my sleep schedule is completely fucked up by now – I love it.

April Financial and Life Updates

I almost didn’t post this month because similar to a squirrel caught in the excitement of shiny objects – I was damn near all over the place.  And for that I SUFFERED.  When I say suffer I really mean = did not improve!

Instead of listing a lot more items, I got distracted on the idea that HEY, MAYBE I’LL TURN MY WALLS IN CHALKBOARD WALLS!  Below is my progress:

Then I figured, I needed to listen to a lot of podcasts and get exposed to more knowledge.  I signed up to various ecommerce forums (so damn helpful) and was bombarded by all these softwares.  In no particular order, these are the softwares that BLEW MY FUCKING MIND:

Zapier.com – they let you create actions, if-then stuff, to better automate your life.  And they link these actions CROSS PLATFORMS.  Like gmail, insightly, redbooth, dropbox, etc.  You name it, they’ve got it.  For example if an email from Company X’s client arrives in my inbox, I can set a task so that once it arrives an opportunity or new task will be created in insightly with a due date so I can keep track/follow up with the client.  Insightly is a client relationship management software.  Gmail is just where all my emails funnel into.  Or here’s another example – if I were to get an email with an attachment from a stalker, I can set a task that will automatically create a folder within Dropbox to store the attachments.  I named 4 programs I use regularly.  There are so many more, it’s ridiculous.  You can even link up Freshbooks so if you get a receipt scanned and emailed to you labeled “financial shit”, you can go ahead and have it automatically do something with Freshbooks.  THIS IS INSANE.

Another revolutionary software I’ve stumbled upon is Widgetchimp.com.  Now you can create eBay templates which can be DYNAMICALLY ALTERED at any point in time to something completely different.  Usually you would have to go into the HTML code and re-code the entire thing for you to have a cool listing description.  Now you can change the format around all the time according to the seasons/sales ideas.  The revolutionary thing about widgetchimp is that a) it’s never been done before by any other company and 2) it allows for easy A/B testing with your description template (to determine whether buyers will even give a fuck).

But let’s get real here – these apps won’t help you if you don’t already have your shit together.

Things I’m doing differently for the next month:

I admit.  I have a problem.  And that problem is … the inability to stop creating new companies.  No matter what.  I just.. gotta try it!  Do you LOVE that double negative I just threw at you there? Fuck yes.  I can’t ain’t stop myself from trying new shit out.  It’s probably because of my ADD.

So therefore!!!!! I am starting an import company.  So far it’s called “Import Business” until it actually profits.  I started doing the initial research for it and I teamed up with a friend.  Yesterday we did a video chat/share screen conference for four hours just looking at products.  I found some products were selling at $1/pop from china (given that you bulk order like $500 dollars worth of the “pop”) while on amazon and in america they are selling for $40+.  DAMN.  Given how there are sites like alibaba.com, you can now easily reach out to manufacturers in China without having to fly there and knock on their doors.  You just use skype.

Just to give you guys a real life example instead of being full of shit here are some screenshots of the “research” I did.

I also signed up to “Create Awesome Courses Online” (a month ago) and am in the process of creating a course for my software company.  I know – it sounds lame that I haven’t done so already but all it did was provide a software.  Now I want to add value to the subscribers by providing a course.

Because of these damn distractions & finding out I needed new glasses (yay for spending mo’ $$$$!) + contacts (#[email protected]&*#[email protected]!!!) …. my sales kind’ve stayed the same for April. Along with cash sales… ~ $16K.  Please see below.

Sales for the software company actually decreased from $800-ish last month in March 2015:

When I look at my progress and then my friend who started Octomask.com tells me his sales were 750K last year all the meanwhile he maintains a full time job elsewhere… it’s like… SMH.

I am still making time to balance my fragile sanity by hanging out with friends & dating the bf.

Yummy seafood stuffs

Yummy seafood stuffs – sorry for the blurriness.

Oh.  And I bought another car. It’s a 1999 Range Rover P38.  Gotta keep on keepin’ on!

What I really want to do:

Get back to actually doing stuff that will help others/actually matter.

For the next post I’ll teach you about how to create an online course using leadpages.com.  Do I currently know how to do it?  PSSSHHHHH…. don’t insult me [after watching tons of video tutorials… yes… yes I have a vague idea I can put into action].
