Write Your First E Book

How To Write An E Book

Write Your First E Book

Writer Extraordinaire

The purpose of this post is to help you write an e book.  Whatever phase your in, writing an e book can be fun.  I like to write short freebies for my list and I find it to be great practice for the real thing when I’m collecting money for my e books.  I am always in the process of writing something, whether it’s my blog, an e book, poetry, songs, or just my journal, so I would be someone who could tell you how to break out of that nasty writers block and do it for the bliss of it.

Of course we want to move past the hobby aspect of blogging and writing and become an expert professional.  We want to be paid.  So we are going to have to solve problems.  That’s what your e book should do for your readers.  It should solve a problem for them in a quick way and make their life better.  Part of the beauty of this process is that you can do it all from home.  You don’t have to leave the house, except for the events.  Just imagine collecting money in your pajamas.

Not that you’d always be wearing pajamas.  You might sometimes be dressed in pants and a nice shirt.  Smelling good.  Feeling good.  Feeling like you could in fact be your own boss and explode your income to heights it’s never been before.  What would the e book look like if you felt that way as you wrote it.

Here’s something that might help you.  Before you write your e book, take 15 minutes and visualize solving a problem with your e book.  Take that time and really see what it looks like to have an e book that your subscribers will get a lot of value from and just do that for 15 minutes prior to writing.  Try it Today!

Back to the subject of how to write an e book, like I’ve already said, you’ve got to solve a problem.  The value for the reader is that you’ve helped them fix their life.  Help somebody fix their life, or add to their life, will gain you more and more subscribers.  Once you get to that 1,000 subscriber mark, you’ll be ready to make your first product launch, and you’ll find out just how much money you can make in your first month.

Then you’ll be writing e books for money, and not just to give more of your valuable content away for free.  Soon, if you choose this path, you’ll be working from home full time, making a full time income.  Nothing succeeds like success and your made of it.  You are after all capable of making money off your blog, so there should be nothing stopping you from making 4 times as much off your own business as you do working for someone else.  The question is would you be satisfied with that, or would you want more?

I’ve been reading Catherine Ponder’s “Dynamic Laws Of Prosperity” and in it one of the affirmations is the following:

EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE PROSPERS ME NOW!

Something I wanted to end this post with, maybe try using it when your relaxing in your down time.

Email lists Rock!

The Benefit of Building an Email List

Email lists Rock!

This is going to change your life!

The biggest benefit of building an email list as a business owner is how easy it is for you to touch lives.  Your people are only an email away.  Even when your starting small with say only a couple subscribers, maybe people you already know, it’s still valuable to get them talking about you, and giving them something valuable in your work.  A great way to do that is to send them an email every once in a while.

When you are solving problems that will help others to help themselves you are being a service to the human race, to all things really.  You are doing for others and when you can love doing it for free just imagine how you’ll feel when you get paid to do it.

And let me be honest here that when you are trying to make a living, money is something that might be closer to the front rather than the back of your mind.  Especially if you’ve got a family.  But you’ve got to understand that this blogging thing isn’t a get rich quick scheme.  It takes years to make money, and you’ve got to be really really good.  So investing in creating a blogging income is a long term strategy and you probably won’t be making a living doing it any time soon.  That doesn’t mean you can’t take more action and try to make your first blogging windfall come faster.  You gotta figure that if you wait until you have 1,000 subscribers, your bound to sell something on your first launch.  Even if it’s only one copy, you’ve still got to sell something if you have 1,000 people on your list.  It’s probably going to be a disappointing number, maybe more than one, but less than 100, but it will be something you can work on and grow.  The blogging business is easy enough to do for a lifetime, without ever having to retire from it.  Why would you ever retire anyways?  It’s fun!  And it’s not hard on your body, all you are doing is typing.  In other words, you could be 99 years old and still able to blog everyday if you wanted to.

So why all the talk about the money anyways.  Blogging is fun, and it makes your life better.  It makes your relationships better.  Building an email list on top of blogging just makes blogging that much better.  Especially if you plan to make money off your blog.  Everyone says it, “the money is in the list”.

So when you get subscribers, that is leading you down a road where people pay you for your products.  You don’t have to start with a $1,000 product.  Start small, something like $20.  That’s a middle ground price range for a good e book, and with a list of 1,000 subscribers, if you did well, you might make a couple hundred dollars off your first launch.  That’s money you didn’t have before, and even better it’s earned with your very own online business.

The money would be nice, but the biggest benefit of building an email list is your opportunity to be of service to other people.  To help other people.  When you work with that in mind, the future is bright.

Blogging About You

Blogging

Blogging is a great way to develop personally and professionally.

This blog is designed to help you blog.  Today’s post is to provide you inspiration to write your next (or first) post.  This blog post is entitled “Blogging About You” because I want to inspire you to know that you are interesting.  We all are like snowflakes that will only be remembered by how we fly and where we fall.  That’s why your life is so important to your blog.  Because your brand and your blog are about your story, it’s important you live a good life, so your blog will be of good quality.  Here are some examples.

Get Good At Saving Money

If you want to be a professional blogger then it’s going to help to be able to save money.  When you have money saved you have the ability to pay cash for ads.  You don’t even need to involve a credit card.  I just recently bought an ad and it cost me $40 and I got 40 clicks and 1 subscriber.  It’s better than getting no subscribers but I still think I can do better.  It’s all a matter of how much work I put into the blog, what I get out of it.  So as with saving money, I’m going to do my best to put all the hours I can into this blog, so I get maximum returns and can then save more money.

Be Good To Your Family

I’m not saying that you aren’t already good to your family.  I am saying being good to your family will help you with your blogging.  For example, Google will only show ads on family friendly sites, that means no crazy content.  When you’re good to your family it will show in your writing and in your videos, and your blog will be better off for it.  The million dollar post starts at home, just like my grandfather said charity starts at home.  Give to your family first, before homeless people and you’ll be living a life worth living.  When your giving to your family, even if it’s only your time, you’ll be putting yourself in a position of responsibility and I know that you’ll live up to the chore.  Not only will it be a chore but it will be a pleasure.  All you give comes back to you a hundred fold, so it’s in your best interest to be a giver.  Take responsibility and be good to your family, not that you already don’t.

Support The People You Work With

How you behave at your day job is important to your personality and your blog.  When you are in the business of giving it’s a no brainer to support your fellow co-workers.  This is a personal blog, and in the interest of being personal I’ll tell you that I’m better at dealing with people one on one than I am in groups of them.  I’m proud to say that I can hold my own in a group.  I’m also proud to say that I can really connect with people when we’re one on one.  So really, it’s not just about doing tasks involved with work with these other people, to help them with the goal, but it’s also caring about what they are doing outside of work, their personal lives that is also important.  Care about other people’s families, their interests, what moves them to action.  Give thanks to God for your lot.  Tend it, and take good care of it.  Personally, sometimes I have issues speaking up.  I find myself not knowing what to say.  I know sometimes I need to say something, but it’s one of those pleasure chores where it takes work to get it out.  It’s all about getting along in the world for me.  And that takes getting along with your coworkers.  So that it’s a good atmosphere.  Try thinking about supporting your coworkers as you punch in tomorrow and see how your day goes.  It may feel like gratitude.

Loving Your Blog

If your going to blog about you, you definitely need to love both you and your blog.  Of course you need to love yourself first and your blog second, seeing as your blog is coming from you, and without you loving yourself, there would be no blog to love.   It’s a beautiful interconnection between your blog and you.  It’s the best of you, all there for the whole world to see.  You may even want to go beyond free content and sell something!  I know it’s easy to love when your making money off it.  So why don’t we make it easy on ourselves and strive to make money with our efforts?  It’s a noble effort blogging for income, isn’t it?  What if our dreams came true and we DID make a $1,000 part time monthly income off it?  Wouldn’t we be deep in the depths of loving ourselves and our blogs?  I have read that the more love you put into something, the more money it’s going to pay you.  If you follow that rule then your going to get paid a lot when you blog the way we do.

Blogging About You Is Hard Work

I’m not going to lie to you.  I’m going to give you the honest truth.  Blogging for profit or otherwise is hard work.  It takes commitment, dedication, as close to daily action as you can take it, and vision.  You have to have the vision that you can change the world.  In order for you to change the world you’re going to have to be the best you can be, and that means a rock solid personal life.  Something you can blog about with pride and enthusiasm.  Shaping your personal life into something you can be proud of is going to take work.  It’s going to take you being your own boss.  And not just any boss, but a great boss.  Someone who motivates you to work, long hard hours with enthusiasm.  Be your own leader than can write posts that are worth more money to you.  That takes hard work.  But if you’ve made it this far in the post, I know you’re willing to do the hard work to make money.  Just know that it’s going to be hard and your not in for good times.  Your earnings are going to be pathetic when you first start.  That doesn’t mean you can’t build.  Just keep the faith in yourself and work towards a higher good.  The rewards are so worth the effort.

Final Words

Blogging about you is injecting yourself into your blog.  You’ll get back what you put out there.  Do me, you, and everyone else a favor and do a good job.  You’ll be happy you did.

Why Entrepreneurs Who Love Blogging Should Have An Email List

From what I’ve learned, the best way to start a business online is to build an email list.  Once you have your list of 2,000 people you can start a business of any kind that you like.  And you’ll have warm leads (your list) that already like you.  I’ve experienced sales and I can tell you it’s a lot easier to sell to people that already like you.

Any really, you could sell anything.  By the time you’ve reached the landmark of 2,000 subscribers and are ready to start a business, you’ll have just learned everything you need to know to create a product of your own.  The experience of building the list gives you the learning you need to be able to coach or teach someone else, with no list, how to do the same thing.  You could write a $10 ebook (or several) on the subject.

Or maybe you want to build a list around your passion for saving money and being thrifty.  Maybe fashion?  Maybe sports?  Maybe food and dining?  Maybe travel?

Whatever it is your writing about, having a list of people that subscribe to your blog is a massive asset and should be treated like gold once you have them.  Your best treatment.  Like all you want to do is make their day better by serving them in an excellent way.  That really is the point of the list, so you can be of better service to the people on your list.  I find that I personally get the best results with service to others in the forefront of my mind.

That said, here are “7 Reasons Why Entrepreneurs Who Love Blogging Should Have An Email List”.

Email List

Why Entrepreneurs Who Love Blogging Should Have An Email List.

7 Reasons Why Entrepreneurs Who Love Blogging Should Have An Email List

1. It’s A Good Act Of Service

When your in business for yourself your not going to make any money unless your of service to people, but it’s not about the money.  It’s about what it feels like to help people.  It makes you feel good, it has health benefits that you can feel, and it makes you a contributor to the evolution of humanity.  When we are being of service we are co-evolving with the people we’re around.  Like co-creation co-evolving includes other people and even the universe to assist humanity in evolving and I say having an email list with subscribers is included in the ways one could aid humanity in the process of evolving.

2. It’s Like A Second Job: It Gives You Something Constructive To Do With Your Time

When your building a list, it’s going to take time, constructive time.  In May of 2016 I started this blog.  I started an email list maybe a year in.  I have 8 subscribers and it took a lot of hard work to get every one of them.  I love them.  Sometimes I only wrote once a month (though those days are over) which might explain why my growth has been so slow.  I however have gone through periods where I’ve posted everyday, and a lot of periods where I would just work on a post every couple days.  Still I have only 8 subscribers.  It takes the effort of a second job to build a list.  But through personal development, and actually picking up a second job, I’ve learned that blogging is my highest calling for work and worst case scenario I will leave a massive legacy of creative work behind and that is (in my humble opinion) still a great accomplishment.  Though if your blogging like it is a second job, and build your list with vigor, you could end up with a real business on your hands.

3. Keeping A Relationship With Your List Is Fun

It’s fun to write an email to your list.  Personally, and in the name of personal development, I like to write a new piece of writing just for the list each time I mail it to them.  I get to explain like never before and only to the people on my list what my blog posts are all about.  I think it’s best that we are totally in love with our blogs and therefore our lists.  We should love our lists the best we can.  That’s what I do, and so far it’s working great for me, and I’m even getting feedback from them.  If every subscriber is worth 1 dollar a month on average, I’d be making 8 dollars a month!  That’s real work from home income.  And my list is going to pay me at some point in the future because I’ve earned their trust in me to deliver.  And we should deliver by writing a post every two days until you reach about 10 solid posts you can be proud of.  Then update your free incentive ebook to reflect your best writing.  Then market the hell out of your website.  See what kinds of conversion rates you get with your traffic.  How many subscribers did you get, how many sales?  Improve until it’s perfect, and you are exactly where you want to be.  That’s fun.

4. Email Lists Drive Traffic To Your Website

Say you’ve written 3 blog posts, and you really love two of them, send the two out of three blog posts to your list, even if you only have a couple of subscribers.  This way your sending them only your best content and it’s in a unique message.  By unique message I mean something you haven’t already written.  Something fresh just for your list.  That way they are getting treated better than someone who isn’t on your list.  All in all, you are going to get some clicks in your emails, and there will be people that read what you’ve written.  Isn’t that cool?  It’ll be even better when you’re getting paid for it.  Still, just having a list is a cool thing, and one of the beauties is that you can have you’re blog and your list for about $40 a month.  The expensive part is the list as that’s $30 a month if your just starting out.  But running a business costs money, just think how much McDonalds pays to keep it’s doors open on the stores that are 24/7.  Gotta pay employees.  If you think about it 40 dollars isn’t much to have a business for yourself.  I myself am even getting ready to buy some ads for this site to boost sales, and earn me subscribers so I’m going to spending a little more than $40 a month on this site.  First I’m going to get some coaching, so there’s going to be a lot of excitement coming up for this blog.  But every time you email your list, you have the opportunity to bring traffic to your site, and an opportunity for growth.

5. Seeing Your Subscriber Count Grow Is Motivating

Knowing that when you reach 2,000 subscribers you will know what you need to know to launch a business to the world.  Growing towards that can be difficult but it can also be motivating.  Motivating to get the next few subscribers.  You’ll eventually get there.  Just got to keep taking action.  And seeing results is motivating.  Then you further have something to work on, which is maintaining and improving the relationship with those people that are on your list.  As I mentioned above I’ll be buying some ads this year, but not before I get coached.  I’m going to go through Tony Robbins.  I heard you could get coached for 200 dollars.  I’ll keep you updated on how it goes on my email list, with getting coached, buying ads, selling Convertkit, getting subscribers, and selling ebooks.  These are the plans I have laid for building an email list.  I figure with 112 Convertkit buyers I’ll be making as much off my blog as I make at my job.  When I’m making 10X what I make at my job, then I’ll quit and take the Holidays off every year.  Currently, I work my longest, hardest hours during the Holidays every year.  I know when I see my subscriber count go from 2 to 5 to 8 I get happy, and I get motivated to keep it coming in.

6. You Get To Know What Those Closest To You Think About Your Website

When your first starting your list, what I recommend you do, to build the list, and to gain some confidence, is to ask you close friends and family to join the list.  It can only help.  I’m not saying you have to ask everyone, but start to work the question into your conversations with people, especially the people your comfortable with and get some subscribers.  Easy subscribers.  This prepares you for the more challenging asks, maybe even more fun, is asking the guy you buy gas from to visit your website and giving him your business card.  When your asking your promoting, and we have to promote out in the world as well as from home.  Word of mouth can be powerful advertising but in order for that to work, you have to work.  So there’s work involved in creating buzz and getting word of mouth advertising.  It also happens on Facebook.  Still, when you ask a friend to be on, and he’s your first man, that’s a landmark.  Blogging and building an email list makes me personally happy.  My mission is to show how happy blogging can make somebody with the world.  That said I need to get off my island and get a coach.  But that said, having a close friend on your list, by simply asking them to do so, can only help you.

7.  You Can Build A Business Around A List

Anything becomes possible around content marketing.  I’m talking reaching status quo would be 7 different streams of income just off one’s blog.  Maybe they only make a million a year between all of them.  But your working and making a million a year.  Granted you’ve got to be really really good with people.  Really, you could sell anything you wanted to your list once you had 2,000 people’s attention [though it would probably take a lot more than 2,000 subscribers to earn a million a year].  Books, courses, membership sites (where you get a monthly passive income), all these things you could create all from your imagination and taking the right massive actions.  Conscious on a spiritual as well as a business level.  Being helpful.  Building a list. You could even sell network marketing if you wanted to.  As for me, I’m thinking I’ll go with selling my own ebooks, and eventually get a published physical book.  Granted it’s ONLY my imagination, but that said I am taking massive action everyday.  I call it massive anyways.

Conclusion

In my estimation, one could build a very profitable business with an email list.  I can’t yet explain the details to you of how to make money with it, but I can tell you that I happily pay $40 every month for the privilege to be able to blog and build a business.

Gratitude, Gratitude, and More Gratitude

[There are affiliate links in this post.  If you click one and buy, I’ll receive a commission (at no extra charge to you)]

It is Well

Everything all good here.

I’ve read that gratitude is really really good for you.

When your on a low, or angry, just think of all the good things you have in your life and it helps to snap you out of that negative place to a place of more positivity.

Gratitude is suggested in a lot of law of attraction books I’ve read, and I’ve heard about other successful people that practiced gratitude exercises in the morning each day.  They would actually write down the things they were grateful for and that’s how they started their day.

The best of the best of them, when they receive their abundance, are humble about it.  It humbles them.  But hey, this isn’t based on science, it’s just a feeling.  The humble ones are the best ones.  I think you can be one of the best of the best, and just be humbly gracious about it.

I know I’m not there yet, but I’m working on it by writing this blog about blogging, and personal development.  Not to mention all the faith.  I’ve written a good deal  on this blog and I think it’s improving.  I encourage you to keep your own blog, and write!  I am getting some results right now.  It’s just so little and no money.  I’m actually paying for domain, hosting, and my email list.  It’s not much, but it’s not bringing in any money either.  I think I’m going to include in some of my work what it’s like to use Adsense.  Buy some ads, send them to my squeeze page, and see how many subscribers I get.  That would be a business minded way to spend some money.

Just wanted to write a bit to prepare you for this list.  It’s of 100 things you could be grateful for.  It’s written from my own perspective so you may want to take what you read with a grain of salt, and feel free to be inspired to think of your own unique ways you can be grateful.

Schizophrenic Sells Deal Number 10

Success

This picture is my personal approval of journaling and writing to grow your life.

The point of this post though is to inform you that I’ve made another sale.

This brings my count to 10 that I know of.  It’s possible there have been sales even though they didn’t say my name when they ordered.  In some ways it’s difficult to track what’s your sale.

But I’ve been keeping a count of my sales, and so far it looks like after I found out from one of the managers I had made another sale, I’m up to 10 now.  She said that they called and wanted to place a $200 order, but in working with the customer, the manager said she was a little crazy.

The manager said that she clearly took the order for a veggie tray, and the woman said she thought she had ordered a fruit tray.  The manager said the customer was just a little off. I figure the quality of the customer will increase over time, as I get better.

So it’s a celebration.  I’m having green tea and writing this blog post.

Really I can’t tell you what it’s like to be on the phone with a customer actually taking the order, the people at the stores do that.  I just send them to the store and they are served by the associate.  I can tell you what it’s like to do the work.

I was out today for instance.  Selling.  One of them told me no, they didn’t want the food, and on the way out there were wasps blocking me.  I had to proceed slowly with caution.

There were also dragonflies.

I just walk in and offer them lunch.  Two box lunches to be exact, one ham and one turkey.  Both made that morning.  On top of the sandwich they get a side, a drink, a cookie, and a pickle.  They get two of those, and a fold with some ordering forms, lunch specials, and coupons if they want to come into the store.

I park at a large office building or business park.  Today it was a business park.  I took 4 bags and 4 folders and started walking.  I went into the first place.

They wanted the lunches.  They were nice.  I went to the next place, they didn’t eat meat.  Then I gave away the 2nd.  And so on.

A couple people told me they didn’t want it, but for the most part everyone accepted and was friendly and happy to see me.

One particular place, a skin therapy place, the people were very friendly and happy to see me.  They were both women, and we got along great.

On top of getting delivery orders I’m also getting foot traffic.

Just today, I did a followup to a real estate agent, and he said he was going to come in for lunch today.  It just so happened I was in the store he was in, and I got to thank him on his way out.  It was great.

I did hear something like his voice after I was off.  I was outside.  I couldn’t make out what he was saying but his message seemed like it was saying I was good.

I love it when the schizophrenia makes me feel good.  Like I’m good.  Schizophrenia can really be a blessing.

And you can stay thankful for your blessings everyday when the voices start telling you you are going to die.  Thankful for another day you can live life. Another day you can raise your family, you can work your job, you can work on your goals, you can try and get a little better, another day.

What I’ve learned is that we are all going to die.  You can be certain that you only have so much time left.  That being said, with respect to that, it makes you want to live more fully today.  It’s a special trick you can learn from schizophrenia, a deep gratitude for life. You’ll need that gratitude when your selling.

For me it comes easy because I’ve landed a job that pays me whether I sell or not.  I do sell, and I will probably be getting bonuses, but right now it’s my hourly.  Not everything I do is sales activity, I do work in the store helping the customers or doing prep work.  I enjoy working with the food in the store, and I enjoy doing the sales work.  I enjoy getting results.  Sales.  More sales.  Many sales.

That’s where I’m going, many sales.  Who knows, I might even be able to drastically increase my income in my current job.  I’d like a 6 figure a year job, but considering my inability to work for several years, I think staying where I am is a good move.

They like me where I work.  They’ve promoted me.  I do things no other associate in our 3 store company does.  My advice to you if you hear voices, is get a job with people you can work with.  People who will love working with you, and that you can love working with.  I know it’s possible, because I’ve found such a place.

Even if you don’t make that much money, you hear voices and you can do your job.  You bring home SOME bacon.  Being a productive member of society is much better than just staying at home only working on your dreams.  It’s much better to work and then have your side hustle, that is IF you CAN work.

So my message to you, if or if you don’t hear voices everyday, is to work.  If you want your line of work to be in sales, then sell.  It’s hard for normal people to sell, your going to have to work extra hard and extra smart just to do the same job a normal person would do, but you can do it!  Just find that right place for you, and work your tail off.

Working For Almost 12 Hours And Then Playing For The Jackpot

I spent 5 dollars.

One on a 43 million dollar jackpot, and 4 on a 228 million dollar jackpot.

I hope I win.

But I also delivered over 6,000 box lunches to the race track over the last two days.  That was an accomplishment.

And I got to work with my brother.  We delivered together.

It was nice of them to put us two together for the delivery.

But we did it.

For about 5 hours I spent my time putting the box lunches into bags, marking the bags, and stacking them up.

Then putting them onto the truck, which was running to keep the cooling on.  It ran for hours.

And the team I was working on was kicking ass.  We were doing double what the other team was doing, and they really had me working.

When I walked in this morning I was told my team was going to be the best because I was on it.  I said they were too nice.  I’m just a regular guy.  That’s what I told them.

On the first trip, yesterday to deliver 100 bags or so, the GPS took us through the city, when we could have just gone around the beltway.  But I didn’t know how to get there so I was at the mercy of the GPS.  My brother was with me, and he sort of lost his mind over the traffic on the way back yesterday.

So today we got the directions from the president of the company and it took us right there.  It was a lot easier.

Today when we were there I was noticing a particularly attractive woman, who was wearing high heeled shoes and a tight dress and she had some very attractive legs.

There was another woman after I had my look who was standing in front of her, and then another woman came out of nowhere and starting walking right up to the truck to where I was sitting.

She looked at me and I looked at her and she kind of mimicked my gesture to her and then she looked at me again and grabbed her crotch.  Like I was a rockstar and I was being given attention by whores.

I did have two rockstar energy drinks today, one on the way to the first delivery.

I drove there twice today.

And I drove a larger box truck then I was used to driving.

8 feet longer.

And 18 footer.

And I don’t know how we would have delivered all 6,000 box lunches in our little 10 foot truck.  We would have had to made 3 trips.

But we had an 18 footer, so we only had to make 2 trips and there was plenty of room.

When I delivered the first delivery though there was 366 bags.  It took up almost all of the 18 feet.  It was by far the biggest of the sections we had to do.

If you figure there are 9 box lunches in each bag, that’s a lot of box lunches.

And I, my brother, and one other guy got them all there.  It was just me and my brother on that last trip.  It was nice because he didn’t complain much.

But all in all it was a good thing.

I got plenty of hours this week, and that’s a good thing for me and my family.

And I want to do more for them, as much as I can do, to help support them.

That’s why I write this blog.  For them.  So that I can be a better father by earning income from my writing.

It is much harder than it seems though.

At least that’s the way it’s been for me.

I feel like some of the commentors on this site are yanking my chain.  Telling me it’s good and not being genuine.  I would rather they come right out and say they don’t like me.  Instead of being nice and leaving trash in their comments.

I still have no subscribers to my list, so that’s a failure.  An ongoing one.  But I really need to spend some sober time editing my ebook so I can give that away as a freebie.  Something to get people to put their email address in.

Because I would love to start a business online and sell products to people.  I just need readers, and that comes with writing.

So I gotta write.  And write I will.  Write until the cows come home.

And that’s what I say we all could do.  Write.  Write like our lives depended on it.  Write and put blood, sweat, and tears into it.  I say that’s the way we get it done.

And we may never make any money at all off of our work.  But 10 years down the line that won’t matter, because we will have grown.  We will have accomplished something.

We’ll probably end up giving up the cigarettes.  So we can be wealthy.

Or we’ll just keep smoking and smoke our money.  We might have so much of it that it won’t matter, and we’ll still be able to leave our children money when we die.

That’s what I’m going for…. health, wealth, and wisdom.

And I figure you can have all three and still drink and smoke.

Probably would be better if you didn’t, but you want to enjoy yourself, so here’s to you.

But after working 12 hours, and driving a big box truck all day I was tired.

So tired I passed out.  I couldn’t drink anymore.  It was making me feel sick.

Tonight my wife and I are going out to eat.  I’m really looking forward to it as we haven’t been out in a while.  I’m going to eat a lot and drink a little.  I’m really looking forward to it.

But I’ve got to get my stuff together.  And I don’t curse on purpose, because I want everyone to be comfortable.  But I really do.

I’ve got to stop spending all my money on cigarettes and alcohol, and then buying groceries and gas on my credit card.  I’ve paid it off a thousand dollars, but now I’m spending on it again, and I’m really losing control.

Internet, if I can ever get my habits under control, and not buy alcohol and cigarettes when I don’t have the money, I’ll be in a lot better place.

And I think that’s what my writing is leading me to.  That’s where it’s leading us to.  Sober, non smoker, exerciser.

But really that would be no fun, and I’m really at my best when I’m smoking and drinking.

So it’s going to be hard to stop.

I’ve been trying since the beginning of this year.  We’re almost 6 months into it and I’m still smoking.

But back to the work.

The work of writing.

And work it is.

I go for 2,000 words each post.  I don’t always get there but often times I do.

I’ve still got a ways to go before I reach that word count, but I’ve already told you about my day.

So what do I blog about next?

How do I make this blog post worth it for you?

I could tell you I’m going to win 228 million dollars tonight, and become a multimillionaire overnight.

But what good would that do you?

I’m looking for the real value here.

What can I give to you?

I can give you my love.

And I do.

I can tell you that woman grabbing her crotch while I was looking at the pretty girl was an encounter.

She wasn’t bad looking either.  Not exceptionally pretty, but good looking.

The one woman though, she had legs forever.  A real nice looking body.  I like being around those kinds of people.  They get my motor going.

I guess you could say that I’m one of those attractive people.  Although my addictions are pretty ugly, I’m not bad looking on the outside.  Older women are always telling me how beautiful my eyes are.

Not to brag, but the ladies are attracted to me in a bad kinda way.  They like me smoking and drinking.  And I like them smoking and drinking.  Not that I would ever do anything about it, I’m married.  But I like seeing them.  I like talking to them.  I like being around them.  Especially when I’m working.

Although really when I was working there was an attractive manager that kept telling me how good I was and because I didn’t turn on my member and get it going with her there seemed to be a disconnect working with her.

I’m married and I don’t play games.  I don’t have the energy.  I just do my job, that’s what I need to do.  And I write this blog.  I almost do want to write dirty things.

Like what I want to do to my wife tonight while our daughter is out sleeping over my parents house.

But I try to be a gentleman so really I can’t go into that.

What I can tell you is that I sometimes try not to even look at other woman.  Don’t want to get the thoughts about doing them in my head.  But that makes it so when I do look, I look to much or I’m too much of a creep and I weird people out.  I should probably just look more.

I don’t think it makes you a bad person if you look at other women when your married to a perfectly good woman already.  Your only looking.  I like it.

I don’t want to like it too much though.  I don’t want to get started doing things I shouldn’t be doing.  Maybe if I ever made a million dollars off this blog it would be easier to have a girlfriend, but that doesn’t mean I WOULD have one.

What I would do if I had a million dollars is travel all the time.  And write about my experiences on this website.  That would be the life.

I want to do it.  Let me know how I can better serve you in the comments.  Or sign up for my list.  I’ll send you primo content.  Right to your inbox.

This is the way it is done.  You write your content until it’s done.  You write until you meet your quota.  Do this thing.  Do this thing now.  You can do it.  Write your blog post.

I worked for 12 hours, and I’m a schizophrenic.  That’s an accomplishment.  Even if I’m only getting paid $20,000 a year.  I definitely want to find out how I can make more money, but I think it all starts with me doing what I’m doing now.  Which is writing.

I do rely quite a bit on intuition so it may piss you off I do have any evidence for what I “think”.  That’s okay with me.  I’m still going to go with my gut.  I’m going to make the right call for myself and for my family.  I’m going to do the thing and have the power.

That’s all I can do, or anyone can do.  You have to write from the heart.  What comes to you.  This is the way it is done.  I can say because I write all the time.  I know how to write.  And it can be done by anyone who can write.  And that would be a lot of people.

But working at my job for 12 hours at 12 dollars an hour is a good day for me.  I used to try to sell and I sucked at being a business man so I had to take a low paying hourly job just to create an income.  It sucks, but it’s also a blessing because so far I haven’t found any other job I can DO.

And I want to do a job.  I want to work hourly.  It’s good for me.  I like it. I want to do more.  I have the weekend off and then I’m back to work.  But I’ve really got to get something going on this website because I’m going back to 30 hours a week and I’m going to have plenty of time to work on my business.

So here’s to working when your off, so that you have the chance to enjoy the benefits of your work later.  There’s always the possibility.

How To Get 178 Good For Approval Comments On Your Blog

And the short answer to that question is to blog everyday for a year and a half, and you’ll eventually hit the nail on the head a one or two of your posts will take off and get other people writing on your website about it.

And I have been blogging for a year and a half on this domain and I haven’t even been blogging everyday.  This is my first go at doing it everyday for 90 days.  I only have something like 74 posts as of right now.  For a while I was only writing once a week.

But I was still moving.  Now I intend to pick up the pace, and get more traffic and more subscribers, and more buyers to this site.  And I intend on doing that by creating valuable content.

So here’s my story.

I’m a family man, a worker, a salesman, a rock and roller, and I’m a wannabe millionaire off of ebooks.  That’s what my first ebook was about, upon reflecting on it.

It’s the story about how you can blog and create income.  And that it’s possible for ANYONE to do it.  The way I see it, I’m a writer first and then a business owner second.  The part of me that makes the money comes after the work itself.  Really though time will tell all.

All I know is that I MUST keep writing.  No matter what.  Wine or not.  Cigarettes or not.  I must keep writing.  That’s my ticket to freedom.  At least that’s what I believe I can free myself from my job with.  And after I finally do it, I’m going to tell everyone exactly how I did it, and how they can do it too.  And I’m going to create products people can buy that will put me into profit, but more importantly bless people.

Because I think you can bless people if you adopt the attitude that all human life is valuable.

And so far I’m making it.  Considering I’m a schizophrenic, just holding down an hourly job is an accomplishment, no matter how much I’m making.

Getting raises at that hourly job is even more of an accomplishment.

Now really my focus should be on HOLDING that hourly job and continuing to grow there. Because that is what is paying me right now.  That’s what I’m living off of.

But Lord is there room for improvement.

But even if I make no money at all off of my writing I still wouldn’t regret doing it.  I think it’s valuable and serves a purpose no matter what level of involvement in the economy I’m in with it.  But at the same time I’m highly optimistic.  I really believe I can make a million dollars writing, maybe I’m wrong.

But I don’t care and I’m not going to be reasonable on that.  I’m going to be UNREASONABLE and believe that I will make a million dollars and more off of my writing, songs, and network marketing. Doesn’t it make you want to get in and go for a ride?

Because writing for me is living my dream life.  You can escape to anywhere or anything you want with writing.  And your TAKING ACTION.  I say you can really go places with writing.  Definitely for me.  Definitely for us.

Plus you can get really good comments even if your not making any money off of it yet.  Like I’m getting.  They say nice things to me, and it makes you feel good that your brightening people’s days.  I love it.  I love my commentors.

And I can’t wait to get a few people on my list so that I can start loving and writing those people.  I think that’s a fun way to build a relationship.  Through email.

I am going to get this business off the ground and start selling a million copies of one or more than one of my ebooks.  I’m just going to write until I have that much value.  I’m going to write until I die or reach the masses.  Most likely though, I will just write and die, and not sell a million copies.

But you never know.  I’m keeping my options open.  I’m leaving myself open to the possibility of success, no matter how slim the chance.  That’s the way I think everyone should look at it.  Take the chance and do what you want to do.  It might work!

For me it must work.  I must free myself from the slavery of an hourly job and working for someone else.  But I’m not going to quit my job or anything.  Not until I’m making what I made in a year, in a month.  Once I’m at that spot, I can quit my job and find more effective ways to profit on my work from home.

I suppose there are a lot of ways you could make money online, but I think blogging is what I support the most.  I think it’s the gateway to all the abundance you could ever desire.  Is that valuable?  Does that make you want to write a blog?

I hope it does, and you can write about whatever you want, even if that’s video games.  I personally myself am not a gamer, I’m a reader and a guitar player.  But I know there are a lot of people that are gamers and I know it’s popular.

So if you can find a way to make money off of the games, go for it.  Maybe you can use some of the ideas on this blog to help you become more profitable.  Because that’s really my job.  That’s what I’m taking on.  EARNING PROFITS.

And slowly but surely I think I will get there.  It’s just gonna take blogging everyday, and eventually writing more ebooks.

But I do have one ebook that I think I could sell.  And the only way I think I can put it is that it’s “good shit”.

It’s shit, but it’s good shit.  It might even have the power to get you high.

Ever think about a reading high?

I get one when I think about all the things I could do to live the life of my dreams.

And when I’m talking about the life of my dreams I definitely am talking about taking a lot of vacations.  And living in a bigger house.

I figure I can have the home base and my family and I can travel the world, and then come back home.  I think that would be ideal.  That would be a masterpiece.

I would probably only need one or two million to get started.  Get the house and take the first vacation.

The dream life is really one that I’m living right now though.  And I think that’s valuable.  I’m writing my blog!  And this COULD turn into an income producing activity.

And I would probably write 10 books a year if I knew I could sell them for a profit.

I think this tells me I really just need to start on a new ebook, the next one I’m going to put up for sale after the one I’ve already finished and am having peer reviewed.

I can’t wait for the feedback.

I COULD site examples of bloggers that have made an impact and are PROFITING.  Intuition tells me that this can be done, and my counselor tells me that I have as good of a chance as anyone else would.

I say I have to work harder to overcome the voices, so I can just live and work.

But their not so bad.  I’ve never been restrained before, mostly because I don’t talk like a crazy person, but I’ve heard about other schizophrenics who have been.

It doesn’t seem like a pleasant experience.  That and being force fed medication.

I take my medication happily.  Antipyschotic.

The voices tell me I’m handsome or that I’m beautiful.  Sometimes I wish they were real people.  Other times when they tell me they want to kill me I would rather avoid that in a real person.

I’m sure at times my boss has wanted to kill me.  Or my wife.  Or my inlaws.  I’m sure this is the case for a lot of people.  Really though, I think overall everyone is pleased.  I’m succeeding at selling my product, and I’m suiting up and showing up.  I’m EARNING an income.  And for the most part it’s easy!

But it’s even easier to write, and I simply love to do it.

What’s the value here for you?  What’s the million dollar value?

Love what you do.  Even if your working for someone else.  It could really come in other ways and you could love what you do even more and make a masterpiece of a life.

And if you took what I wrote here and ran with it, and started blogging everyday for 90 days, nonstop, then you COULD make some money selling ebooks, and that COULD be worth a million dollars to you.

For me it doesn’t come fast enough so I just went out and bought a Powerball ticket.  I don’t know if it’s good news or bad news but when I folded the ticket and put it in my wallet, and then pulled it back out when I got home, the ticket was stuck together.  Some of the numbers stuck to the other side of the paper.  If I were to win I don’t even know if they could redeem the ticket!

It’s for 90 million dollars.  Plenty to retire my wife and I.  I would never have to work another holiday again?

What’s the value here?

What’s the million dollar value?

If you do play the lottery and you do keep a blog, you could write about playing the lottery on your blog.  That way if you won you could go public with your website at the press interview and your traffic would skyrocket!  The masses would read your work!  Wouldn’t that be lovely.

But people would also hate it, and I would have to deal with that.

I guess it’s give and take.  I’m ready for the responsibility.

Well, the powerball number is 17, and I think I have a 3 and a 7 in there as well as a 66.  We’ll find out tomorrow if I won the jackpot because I probably won’t stay up and check it tonight.

Then again, I might.  This would be the second time in a week I’ve stayed up to check the numbers the night of the drawing.

But the most I can lose tonight is 2 dollars so it’s not that bad.  But I’m optimistic, and I’m holding out hope that I’ll win.  That my sticky ticket is the jackpot winner.

And the way I see it is there is no other choice than for me to believe it is.

This could be the road to madness.

Or it could be the ticket to millions of dollars.

Only time will tell.

But really I don’t have to win the jackpot.  I still have this blog, and at minimum, even without ebook sales, I still have an hourly job.  So I’m working, but I’m also enjoying the weekend, and it could really lead to more money.  I’m working so that it does.  Time will tell what results I get.  I think they are going to be good all around.

But what if I win the jackpot tonight?

That means on Monday I put my two weeks in.  Not that I don’t like the job.  I just don’t want to work for anyone if I don’t have to.  I would go from the worker to the boss.  The one writing the checks.

And the voices entertain bad things that would happen to my marriage if I ever was a millionaire.  I fight those voices.  I love my wife, I love our family together.  I love what we do for each other.  I cherish her.  And that’s the way I’m going to be, or better, for the rest of my life.

And if I DO WIN THE JACKPOT tonight, I’m going to celebrate tomorrow and make sure I write about it on this blog.  Maybe people can learn from me and manifest their own lottery jackpot wins.  That’s my hope for the future, or one of them at least.

Here’s to you having a great day, I thank you for reading.  Take care.

Create The Most Valuable Work You’ve Ever Created In Your Life

You can do this by improving everyday.  Day in, day out.  Improvement.

Your work today will be better than it was yesterday and your work tomorrow will be better than it is today.  You can do this.  Be strong!

I just finished a 75 page e book entitled “Take Action And Improve!”.  I re-read it and edited it.  I think I’m going to put it up for sale on this website.  See what I can do.

I think big, and I think selling a million copies of an ebook, on your own website would be a great accomplishment.  Right now though, to put it into perspective, I only have 56 visitors a month to my site.  I’m going to really have to up that number if I want to reach my goal of a million sales.  I to be quiet honest, I don’t know that “Take Action And Improve!” is going to be that book.

But i propose my writing will improve as the days pass.  That I will get better with age, as I believe anyone could.  Simply by choosing a craft and sticking to it, day in and day out.

But I wanted to give you something new to read, being it’s been a week or so since my last blog post.  I wanted to update this site with new information.  Current information.  And my blog should be someplace you can keep coming back to for inspiration.  Take that inspiration and TAKE ACTION.

If your like me, you’ll write.  Because writing IS an action you can take, and a powerful one in more than one way.

Because I believe if you write a blog under your own name, and put your conscious stuff out there, then things will come back to you based on what you put out there.  Like the law of attraction.  “You create your own universe as you go along” -Winston Churchill.

I propose you could create a universe filled with money and love by blogging on a regular basis.  And writing e books.  Coming up with your own product.

I should have a list soon.  There have been some comments about joining a feed to get updates on this site.  I will soon have one.  I’m simply waiting to be approved by the provider and then you’ll be able to get the new blog posts sent to your email address.  Along with whatever other content I want to provide to you that’s going to take care of you.

Because being on my list, your going to be my most loved people on the internet.  I’m going to go above an beyond my best to give you things no one else gets, because your on my list.  I’ve even considered writing poems about improvement and sending them out ONLY to my list.  Something to brighten your day.

It’s coming soon, it’s not up yet.  But it should be very soon.  And you could do the very same thing!

Start a blog, then a list.  Make your money online.  With your writing.  Wouldn’t that be lovely?  If your like me you are obsessed with the idea.  You want more, you want to work more, you want to do more, you want to GIVE more.

And that’s the thing.  You’ve got to give for free to get peoples attention.  The people who are going to buy from you are going to buy from you.  That’s the bottom line.  What you should be concerned with is doing your job by writing the most valuable content on the internet.  Let the rest fall into place.

But it’s no easy task coming up with the most valuable stuff on the planet.  It takes a lot of hard work, it takes experience, it takes the knowledge from books.  It takes your life to become valuable.  And I’m talking about GREAT value here.  And reaching massive amounts of people.  Why not?  Why not go big?

You have to figure if you go big and want to sell a million copies of your e book, and you only end up selling 100,000 copies, that would still be an achievement.  And there’s no reason to think that if you sold 100,000 copies you couldn’t sell another 100,000 copies.  And then on and on, and improvement.

Perhaps you’ll update you e book, or make a whole new one altogether.  I propose you would do better if you just kept writing them.  Write e book after e book.  Think of the journey.  Think of the adventure!

Especially if you have one done already and are ready to market it.  That will be exciting.  The hard part is done!

But I just wanted to come to you to write this today to let you know that I believe in you.  I believe ANYONE can come up with the most valuable content in the world, and have their opportunity to make a living off it.  Maybe you’ll sell a million copies, maybe you’ll make 50,000 dollars a year.  But if you’re striving to provide the best content in the world, the most valuable stuff, I say your destined for success.  It takes faith, because afterall, it takes years to develop a blog, but it CAN be done.  David Wood of the Empower Network did it!  We can do it too!

But I wanted to really give you something of value here so I would tell you, from my own experience, that you should get out there and work an hourly job.  And improve there until there is no way your not going to get a raise.  Because that’s what I did, and it’s making my life a lot better.  It gave me the confidence and money to start this blog and start blogging again, after I failed at the Empower Network.  I say work your hourly job with love, until you’ve worked so hard on yourself that you can retire from working it.  That’s my dream, and I think that’s a shared dream I have with many other people.

And it takes hard work!  It takes going into your hourly job and doing the job well, and improving!  Because you still want those raises that are going to come if your more valuable!  So do it!

But I know, it isn’t easy.  I’ve had two really good jobs in my life.  I’m working the second one now.  I got fired from the first.  Couldn’t handle it anymore and I lashed out at my coworkers.  Which got me fired.  Thankfully there are second chances.  I’m working with more opportunity than I ever had at my first job, and I’m doing more fulfilling work.

Because my life, as with many other people, has been partly shaped by my work.  So I love talking about my work.  It’s what gives me income.  And I’m happy to say I’m doing well and increasing my pay on a consistent basis.  The sky is the limit from here, especially with this blog and the e book I just finished writing.

And I intend on showing people how to make it with time and money freedom.  That’s my plan.  That’s what I intend to do.  And I’ve got to get there to be a better teacher!  I’m starting small, but small is still something.  I get comments!  I figure if somebody is going to comment there are going to be people who join the list.  And the more people join the list, the more I’ve earned as a writer.  The more people love my work.

I propose we could really create a movement of people moving from their hourly jobs, to working businesses online, selling e books, and other goods and services.  This is already happening, but I think we could add to the number of people who are successfully doing it by adding value to people’s lives.

Here’s to you, your e books and your blog, and your health, wealth and wisdom,

Improve And Succeed With Your Sales Job

Right now I’m selling.

I do it about three times a week, sometimes two times a week…

But I’ve been getting out there each week for about a month now.  All I know is that they gave me a two dollar raise to do it.  And new clothes.

Plus a name-badge, which really makes me feel official.  I heard the voices talking today about how I was official.  It kind of made me feel nice.  The voices can definitely be a blessing.

But how did I manage to get this job?

Why are they giving me more money, buying me clothes and a name-badge.. engraved… why, why, why….

I think it’s because I pray for sales.  My good thoughts are with the company’s sales.  I used to work with this guy who blew everyone out of the water in sales, and he said it was because he prayed for sales.

So everyone got an email list from some prayer website and got their prayers delivered to their inboxes.

I’m talking about delivering my own email to people to inspire them to take action.  To buy the next book on your path to growth.  To get on an email list that’s going to help you.  I’m planning to have both in store for you.  And I’m also planning on quitting cigarettes because I think that quitting is a good thing.

For now I’m just trying to stick to only one glass of wine a day.  I think that’s good for your health.  Red wine.  A glass a day.

I’ve got a lot of life left in me, I’ve just got to get off the cigarettes and I think I’ll be fine.  But I’m keeping this blog!  I’m doing my thing!  And I’m getting new twitter followers every week.  I should easily be able to turn this website, or any other site, into a  money machine.  And yeah baby, wouldn’t that be “working harder on yourself than you do at your job”-Jim Rohn.

And I say you could do it to.  Anyone could do it, everyone has value.  And your ideas can go for money!  The key to it, at least as far as I can tell, is to build your content up so strong your readers will WANT to buy things from you.  Yes, that’s right… I’m talking about making on the internet with information products people can buy that help them improve.  I think that would be working very hard on myself…. and sharing value with others.  I’ve probably been blogging a year, year and a half on this site, under my name… and it’s changed over time.

It was about schizophrenia, but I didn’t want to limit myself to just my illness, and I wanted to follow my passion, so I started writing things as valuable as I could make them for other people who just wanted to improve their lives..

And if a schizophrenic like me can work on taking over the world with his blog, I think anyone can take the world over with their blog.  They can be part of the “it” thing.  And if a schizophrenic like me can hold down a job for 30 hours a week, where a two thirds the time is selling, I’d say I’m doing pretty good.

And I hear voices.  The truth of it is, sales makes it worse.  Or better, it’s better really.  Because the voices really are a blessing.  And that’s part of my philosophy.

My philosophy is that the more you can count the positive things about your circumstances, the better off you’ll be.  Even if it doesn’t look good, make it look good.  And don’t complain, your bosses will LOVE you.
