Some Days, I Would Rather Do Anything Else, Than Work

This happens to me all the time. Especially since I work from home, and I have no one really telling me that I need to get to work, or I need to get shit done. In fact, I could spend my entire day contemplating the length of my fingernails, and no one would be the wiser. That’s one of the dilemmas of people like me, who work from home, who are creative, who need to get in the mood to…

[Ep 87] Do Your Business Your Way

Don’t Let The Internet Rush You – No One Is Posting Their Failures

Recently, I read this awesome quote attributed to Wesley Snipes (on his Twitter account), and I instantly copied and pasted it into my archives of useful quotes. It’s basically the title of this post – Don’t let the internet rush you; No one is posting their failures. Boom! Bam! Bing! Absolutely on point. As soon as I read it, I got goosebumps, and that’s when I know something that I am reading (or listening to or whatever) is important. That’s…

If You Are Not Going To Be Serious About Your Work, No One Else Will

When I first quit my job to start my own business, I didn’t take it seriously, or as seriously as I take it now. I would let people distract me from my work, I would roam around during my most creative hours looking for dates or doing groceries, and I got embarrassed when people would tell me I didn’t have a real job. I bought it upon myself. I didn’t take the work that I was doing seriously. The problem…

Are You Focusing Your Energies On The Wrong Questions?

I get asked this particular question a lot from newbie business owners, or people who are trying to set up an online business, and it always acts like a stumbling block for people. The question being, “Should I build my business under my name, or under a random moniker, like you have done with The Millionaire Hippie?” It’s weird to me, how this question seems to paralyze the people who ask it for weeks, months, or even years on end.…

People Be Like, How Much Money Are You Making Now?

In normal society, asking someone how much they make is absolutely taboo. I don’t know if it’s a good thing or bad. But that’s how it is. But for some reason, the tables turn when you start a business. All of a sudden, all the inner workings of your finances, and your business are fodder for everyone’s conversations, and questions. Strangers will emerge from the woodwork like scary zombies, and ask you extremely personal questions about your business and work…

Most People Are Going To Believe You Will Fail

Every single person I speak to, who has a big dream or even a small one, has a similar story. They might have just started on their path or they might be at their dream already. No matter what, they have all have a similar tale to tell. It begins something like this…’I was walking down the street, and a coconut fell on my head..’ Sorry, wrong story. Let me try again. ‘One day I decided enough was enough. I…

There Are Going To Be Days When Everything Goes Wrong

‘But my website has been down for 3 days!’ I yelled at a customer service representative, instantly regretting yelling at someone who was obviously not at fault. I took a deep breath, and asked the rep to help me fix my website issues today. I needed my website to be up again. I was losing precious potential clients every moment it was down. I was pulling my hair out at the frustration of it all. Not only that, but I…
