I know what you are thinking.

"That's 30k a month, right?"

No.

30k a year.

I'll admit, that appears like a pathetic goal. But, and again, it's sad to admit it, but I've never made more than 30k a year in my life. I think the most money I made in a year was 20k lol.

This was because I practically gave up on life in my early 20s, and it's similar to The Dark Knight Rises where Bruce Wayne is in the prison that Bane placed him in, without his gadgets, and he has to climb back up or else he will die. That's how my money situation is.

Soooooooo, that's my goal for 2020. Make 30k. Before expenses and taxes, of course.

Anybody who followed my last thread on this kind of thing is probably wondering: What is the difference between this thread and the other thread?

This thread is going to be a little different in that it is going to be updated weekly (every Tuesday) instead of monthly, and it will also put in full detail how much money I am spending on profitable hobbies such as bowling and smash tournaments (bowling is self explanatory, but smash is a popular fighting video game franchise that I am really good at, an "e-sport" if you will). You'll see how much money I put in and how much I get out.

-My current strategies for reaching this goal-

So going off my last thread about this, I make money in three ways, from easiest to most difficult:
-Uber/Lyft: To make money doing this, I just turn on the app, get requests, drive people around, get paid. I'd call it half location independent, half location dependent. It's location dependent in that I need to be in my car and driving to make money, location independent in that I have no boss or any set schedule.
-Freelance writing: To make money doing this, I need to find clients (or they find me), I write stuff for them, I get paid. This is location independent but I need to market myself, get myself out there, hunt clients, develop a portfolio, make a resume, all kinds of stuff. Different than with Uber and Lyft, I have a boss with freelance writing and those are the clients I write for.
-Selling e-books/memberships/coaching: This is by far the most difficult way to make money since no one knows who I am and I never think that the stuff I sell is perfect enough which is why I don't advertise it on here lol. However, it is the most location independent: No boss, make my own hours, a chance for passive income (if people join my membership site...its similar to SMIC only it's a Slack channel and it revolves around my e-books which are mostly about mental health and recovering from certain traumatic experiences, still building it and putting in some stuff)

Here's my strategy:

-It will take $2500 a month, or $600 or so a week for me to meet my goal. This means if I work 6 days a week, I need to make at least $100 per day.
-No matter what, I need to make $270 to $320 a week on Uber/Lyft. Assuming I get six days to drive, this shakes out to right around $50 per day. This will pay for all my month's expenses, which total out to about $1000 a month. This will take care of half of the $30k immediately. I can make this $50 or so a day just by driving for 4-5 hours on average.
-Next comes freelance writing. I NEED to seek out better paying clients. The lowest amount that I should be agreeing to is .05 per word. However, higher paying clients and gigs are going to be a lot more difficult to hunt down than the cheap ones so I'm wondering how I should go about doing this. Do I stick with cheapo clients to build my portfolio and resume, or am I good for the higher paying clients now? I'm gonna find out by April. I'm confident that even if I write for cheapo clients, I can produce the same kind of income from freelance writing this year as I can from Uber/Lyft.
-And then we have my e-books/coaching/membership. The problem with this is that I don't know if I can do it alone, especially my Slack team. I mean if 100 people are paying me $9 a month to be on the team (that's my goal) that's great, but then I'm gonna need to hire admins and stuff. That's a whole nother headache. As far as my e-books and coaching is concerned, I have no idea how to get traffic and I'm worried that it isn't going to be perfect enough.

I want to start 2020 by making 50% of this 30k income from Uber/Lyft, 40% from freelance writing, and 10% from my e-books etc, but want to end it with only 25% or so coming from Uber/Lyft and the other 75% of it from the other stuff.

By 2021, I want to not rely on Uber/Lyft to maintain my lifestyle (which it currently does) and only use my car when I need to. By 2022 I want to get rid of the car in its entirety and have an income strong enough to where I can take Uber/Lyft myself.

My first income report will be...in 12 or so hours, for the first week of January.

I’m happy for your ambitious side. I would rather lease a car, and put it up for rent than drive people around. Not sure if you looked into that side of business. Turo is a great program. Depending where you live, if I’m FL for example I can lease a BMW, Audi, Mercedes for $900 ish including insurance, and charge $150/night with a deposit, plus mileage, which a lot of people will pay during winter and want to act balling. Just legal tints, clean car, little small details to make it stand out such as mirrors, lights, little lip, etc. you’ll make as much as people renting out apartments, and in this area what you do when summer hits, you sell those cars because you’ll always find the people that wish to “look cool” by buying one of those cars.

I rent out a Audi A8, 2019, which I lease, ala tax write offs, maintaining oil etc included for $729/month with $180/insurance, and it’s taken 4 times a week for $160/night. Basically, two weeks are straight cash. I’m thinking of doing this with 5-6 cars. It’s a nice income to put into stocks, with good divs, which keeps accumulating money.

lol that's pretty creative. How does that work exactly? I guess that would be cool to do but I wouldn't feel right doing it. So you would need to pay to lease the car and other people would pay you to have it? What happens if they get into a wreck or if they decide to trash it though?

I live in a college town in FL so I don't think that would work for me anyways. Too many broke college kids around haha.

January 7th:

Uber/Lyft = 277.74
2020 total = 277.74/30000

I was shocked I was able to hit this goal even though I took New Year's Day off. So I drove for five days instead of six.

As far as freelance writing and other stuff go, I really need to re-organize my portfolio to see if I can sign with higher paying clients. There is one client who I'm going to submit a test article to, but they pay really low, about .02 per word. However, they do promise at least 10000 words worth of assignments per week which would yield at least $200 per week. But again, I want to use the first quarter of this year to see if I can write for higher paying clients, even if it means straight up saying no to the cheapo ones. So I'm saying no to this client for now.

I have a bowling tournament on Saturday, and it's a pretty important one. The grand prize is a free entry into a Professional Bowling Association (PBA) Regional tournament that is taking place in February on top of prize money. It usually takes a 210 or so average to be seeded first (not in the PBA one, but the one this weekend). So I'll report the results of that next Tuesday.

I signed up for iWriter, which is similar to Upwork and Fiverr only it is specific to freelance writers. So I'll learn about using it later tonight.

Take care everybody.

1— I recommend Copy Chief as an organization to help you earn more for your writing. Kevin Rogers is my mentor though he knows me by a differnt name, if you decide to join the community mention me to them. This is where you'll master your craft, find gigs, and learn how to best position yourself as a well-paid writer. https://copychief.com/waitlist/

2— What I do is just pitch people i like. Work with their budget, deliver writing or a workbook that teaches them to get the result they want with your type of writing. Then use that as a way to propose future work once they're onboard.

3— Don't forget you can consult as well. Meaning just talk about writing with clients. Offer this on the various sites you use. Charge $250 for 30 minutes, or $500 with three writing drafts for them to use, delivered right before the call.

4— Find local ad and marketing agencies to partner with on your writing. They have the clients, offer to be a someone they can rely on to write copy when they're overwhelmed with work. I used to make a list of agencies, then pitch them. Sometimes get work off the introduction call. Solid approach.

5— Join AWAI or grab one of their courses to improve your consulting offering

6— Build a portfolio page or basic site. Create an email list, and drive traffic to it. Then write regularly, if not daily to that list with tips about the industry and your creaft. Then make offers so they can immediately buy your time for consulting or outright to write for them. Ben Settle teaches this well https://bensettle.com/, and I am starting my email list doing the same. I used to teach this, and I'm back to consulting as of this past fall. https://forms.aweber.com/form/99/908917599.htm

No matter what, right now set a commitment to double your rate. Tell your former and current clients that you're rates changed and you can only help so many people at once. If they want to stay on your schedule, they'll have to pay the new rate, which is 2x more. Then accept what comes.

Meanwhile, with new prospects you tell them your new high rate, which is no longer per word, but per document ya dig?

By doing this you'll force yourself to say pitch worthwhile clients with money who respect your work. It'll also help you to realize there are thousands of people who want to pay you more for the work you do, but you were blind to their existence.

Bottomline is NO ONE will pay you more until you ask them to do so. Just ask!

Actually I’m in FL too, these rentals come mostly from couples. Always a hot shot that wants to impress a woman. Since car is leased under my business it’s also insured through the business as well. That’s a risk.

I remember I used to do the same thing and still do at times. Don’t look at kids walking around campuses etc. Look at how many people are taking up hotels, weekly rentals for houses etc. These are all out of state vacation birds and most have money. If I go to Miami and want to be a big dog, hell yeah I’ll rent out a Ferrari, or whatever for a couple of hundred. There’s a lot of those that come with the intention of being this “big dog”, and then posting on their instagrams and so on.

January 14th:
Uber/Lyft = 358.39
Bowling = 160 in, 174 out. Net gain of $14 (this could have been waaaaay more but whatevs)

2020 Total = 650.13

Soooo Saturday's tournament, I was about 50 pins away from winning at least twice as much money as I won. I came in 5th out of 39, and I was about 80 pins away from being first. For those not familiar with bowling, 80 pins is pretty much 8 to 10 spares. And we bowled 8 games at the tournament. So if I converted one more spare per game, I would have been the top seed and would have won $900 instead of $150. As far as the free entry goes, the top two in that qualified for that. Guess where I came in? 3rd lol. And I was 50 pins away from that. And during most of the tournament I was 1st in that category.

As far as driving goes, college starting has made driving very profitable. I can easily make $50 in 4 hours (11 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon). Because I had to take an entire day off to bowl, I actually had to drive for a lot longer to cover for it. And I was able to make $100 in a little over 8 hours. Then after the tournament, I made a little more than my $50

I'll just add this since this board isn't letting me edit what I posted this morning.

After the tournament Saturday I made $75 from Uber/Lyft on Sunday and Monday instead of my usual $50 per day that I usually do

A client who I haven't been in contact with since September has given me some work to do, and this is one of my higher paying clients. So things are looking up a lot this month.

January 21st:

Uber/Lyft = 257.47
Bowling competition = 109 in...1202 out! Now THAT is a paycheck!

Yes, let's talk about this bowling tournament over the weekend, shall we? (WARNING: This is going to be loooooong and you're gonna see a lot of tournament lingo too)

So there's this megabucks bowling tournament that I used to compete in twice a year: Every Memorial Day weekend and every Labor Day weekend. I was competing in these tournaments from 2012 until 2017. The people who ran these tournaments needed to reorganize some things, so they had to stop in 2018 and 2019, and it was also very questionable that it would even start back up again.

However, the people who bowled in said tournament's voices were heard, and they hosted a "welcome back" tournament last weekend.

Two of my bowling buddies were going to join me. However, both of them ducked out at the last second. One was sick and one had to work. Either way, I was prepared to go to this tournament and win some serious cash, knowing exactly what I needed to do.

Halfway there, I developed a nasty migraine-type headache. It was pretty bad. I was pumped for this tournament and now I was considering turning back. But I convinced myself not to. It was just some stupid headache, how bad could it possibly be?

I wanted to get to the bowling center by noon since I knew I had a better chance to advance if I bowled during the tournament's noon session (If you are the top two in the field after the 12 noon time slot, you advance without worrying about your score being beaten; this is how I always made the cut in the past). However I got there an hour late because I made a wrong turn.

I was in some serious pain when I walked into the bowling center. My mouth was unusually dry, the headache had now turned into a full blown migraine, and I felt unusually nauseous. It was even hard for me to walk or see straight. My legs and back were aching like I just squatted my own body weight (200 lbs) 50 times. I was strongly considering bowling just one session, seeing if I advanced, going to my hotel room, sleeping for 14 hours, then just heading back if I didn't advance.

When I walked into the bowling center, I unexpectedly ran into another bowling buddy of mine (who really had no business competing in a tournament of this kind of caliber, since even pros who average over 220 struggle in this tournament and my buddy has a 160 average). I told him about the migraine I was having and he offered headache medicine. A nice gesture, but that stuff never worked for me without me triple-dosing. I hadn't eaten but was afraid to eat because of how nauseous I was feeling, but he ordered a pizza for us (and the chick he was with) anyways.

I ate a slice, expecting it to come right back up. It didn't. Good. I then signed up to bowl at 4 in the afternoon. This was the next best option that I knew I needed to take if I wanted a good chance at advancing since the final cuts for the afternoon were made at 4. So if I made the cut at 4, I wouldn't need to worry about my score getting beaten out of the cut or anything.

I also decided that I would check into the hotel after bowling, since I really didn't feel like driving around anywhere at all. So I watched my bowling buddy bowl at 2 in the afternoon. Coaching him seemed to make the pain go away somewhat.

So now it is 4 in the afternoon, my head is still pounding, I'm still seeing stars, I'm still getting vertigo all over the place like I'm some anxiety ridden beta lol, my back and legs still feel really really bad, and it's time to bowl. I favored my legs and back in between every frame: The pain was so bad that there were tears in my eyes.

For some reason this not only helped me advance to the semifinal round, but I was also the top seed in the field. This won me a new bowling ball as well.

But now I was in even worse physical shape. My legs and back were now hardly functional. It was hard to walk and I felt red hot all over. I picked up a sub and two gallon jugs of water before going to the hotel. The water went down fine, but after getting 1/3 through the sub I thought it was going to come right back up. So I put it in the fridge.

I must have slept at least 12 hours on Saturday night, probably longer. I had the thermostat set to 65 and I was still disturbingly hot. The chick who checked me in wasn't helping either, saying "you might have the flu: It's going around, two of my friends died from the flu recently."

So I'm gonna die? Thanks, babe. That's all I could think of when I heard that.

Things are only slightly better when I wake up. Still dizzy. Head still feels like over 9000 tons and disturbingly light all the same. Back and legs still feel like they are gonna fall off. I try to eat the rest of the sub but I need to eat slow. It still feels like it's gonna come up. Now I'm officially afraid to eat anything because I'm certain that whatever I eat is gonna come right back up.

I check out of the hotel and head to the bowling center, wondering if I'll be able to keep food down within the next couple of hours.

Now the semifinal round for this tournament started at 6 in the evening (and that got pushed back by about an hour or so). Knowing that it would be a good idea to bowl a little bit to warm up before the semifinal round began, I decide to bowl in the last qualifying set before semifinals begin (for a discounted entry fee, since I already qualified).

Before my "practice" set, I decide to try and eat again. So I get a club sandwich at the bowling center and I'm able to get through a good amount of it perfectly fine. However, my head and everything else still really hurts.

The semifinal round begins and I know that I would be able to advance if I threw a similar set that got me into the semifinal round. I throw almost the exact same set that I threw during qualifying and this gets me into the 4th place position in finals.

But it's not over yet, since I now need to make sure that I need to get to the championship stepladder if I want a chance to win the grand prize of $3000. It's me against the guy who placed 3rd and I know that if I beat him, I should be clear for the championship stepladder. I wind up beating him by 10 pins (210 to 200) and it moves me up to the 3rd place spot for the championship.

So now it's the championship stepladder. It's almost midnight at this point and I'm almost completely out of it. But my adrenaline has taken over at this point. My head still kind of hurts but not as much as it did before. I bowl a repeat match against the same person who I just beat to secure my 3rd place spot in the stepladder. This time I eke by him with a score of 168 to his 162. And I lucked out too: He left a massive split which came after he threw two strikes.

My 3rd place spot is secured and now it is time to face the 2nd seed...a 90 pound VYW. I shit you not. I knew this wasn't gonna be an easy match either, I had been watching her for most of the weekend since we both had a similar style and approach. And she was bowling every bit as good as I was the entire weekend. The fact that some of her VYW bowling buddies were there cheering her on didn't help much either.

She destroys me, beating my 150 with a 190. I had no chance: I was striking on the right lane but leaving nothing but nasty splits on the left lane. I just shrugged and laughed: I knew it was over after I started leaving splits.

The 3rd place spot won me $1100. Before then I had won two high game pots, worth $36 a piece. The same guy who was running brackets for the tournament (brackets are where you go head-to-head against an opponent chosen at random) put me in a few and I won $30 from that.

So in a FORTY EIGHT hour span, I made over $1000. WITH a massive (and nearly debilitating) head cold with flu-like symptoms.

There is no way I could have done this with Uber or Lyft and I've yet to find a client who is willing to pay me that much to write stuff for them.

This is why I embrace my profitable hobbies: They make me do things that I never thought possible. I'm not like this with writing yet but I'm getting there.

I'll be going to my very first PBA Regional tournament in about a month and my performance in this tournament has given me a lot of confidence going into it.

Now I understand that these kinds of opportunities aren't very common but it means a lot to me and winning this kind of money is very important to me in that it "shows" me that I deserve to make a lot of money.

Because of this, I'm gonna take some time off driving for the next couple days. I'm still kind of sick and I want to take some extra time to work on my freelance writing: Catching up on assignments and looking for more clients.

See you all next Tuesday!

I was sick for most of the week and I couldn't be nearly as productive as I wanted to be. I had no idea how much the bowling tournament took out of me. By Thursday I was feeling a little bit better and got back to my usual writing routine, but the clients I am writing for weren't responding when I contacted them. I want to hunt down more freelance writing clients but I'm afraid that if I start writing for 20 or so different clients, they will all start dumping work on me at the same time and all of a sudden I'm behind in a matter of seconds.

The month of February is going to be a very important month in my bowling career, but I know that I need to really focus on my writing related business as well. The problem is I only have so many hours in a day to do all this stuff, and there is so much stuff that I need to do that I wind up ignoring it just because I am overwhelmed or afraid I am not doing it perfectly.

Also, I'm doing all this at the direct expense of my love life too which is not healthy at all.

I need to find a way to be able to do all this stuff in a more organized and efficient way.

I can't blame driving for Uber or Lyft for any of this: All it takes for me to make $50 or so per day on that is to do four hours worth of rides. I'm finished by 3 in the afternoon, leaving me until 11 at night to do my other stuff.

I'd like to say that I might be taking too much downtime, but I only give myself a couple hours a day of downtime (from 11 at night until 1 in the morning).

So we'll see how I take on all this stuff. If I just stay focused and concentrate on one task at a time, I should be fine.

I drove like crazy the past week because the PBA Regional tournament I was talking about is this coming weekend instead of at the end of the month which was when I thought it was. So I had to commit a little more to driving. I also got an assignment from one of my clients finally, and I finished it promptly. There are a couple more that I need to work on as well, and I'll probably get paid for them when I report in next week.

I'll be taking time off driving going into the weekend because of this as well. I'll be doing plenty of driving this weekend when I go to this bowling tournament too.

This coming tournament is going to be my very first Professional Bowling Association event and to be honest, I could have entered a tournament like this five or so years ago. I really want to see how I do in this to see if I should spend more time and money on bowling. Doing well in megabucks tournaments is one thing, but a pro bowling tournament is completely different.

However, I've been doing really well in bowling this year so far, I should do quite well in this tournament. I'm expecting to at least cash this weekend.

Sorry I didn't do an update last week. Sooo six or so weeks into 2020, and I'm over 10% finished. Not bad I suppose, but now I am almost completely dried out on freelance writing. My handful of clients have not been responding to me so now it is time to find some more.

I'm not gonna write about bowling too much right now, just know that as good as I was doing I need to do a bit better in order to do what I did last month consistently. I've been losing a bit of money, but the return in investment is still positive because of how much money I won last month haha.

I'll spend more time this week hunting down clients. I imagine I'll be able to get right back on the freelance writing train by the end of the month if I put a lot of effort into finding clients.

Thank you.

I've struggled with a lifetime of settling for low incomes and thinking that I wasn't capable of higher incomes (it's similar with chicks: I always thought I never I could get with chicks who weren't considered below average).

I know I am capable of making more money, I just need to start really believing it.

Yeah, I feel that. It's hard sometimes to believe that we deserve to have that, until we have it - it's a period of adjustment. But you see glimpses of it coming down the line, thats how you know you're getting close.

I had an insane week when it came to driving as there were tons of bonuses. There's going to be a lot of bonuses this week as well so next week's number should be similar.

I have a plan for acquiring freelance writing gigs. I realize now that I really need to get out there and apply to at least a dozen of gigs per week. It's the same as chicks: You need to put the numbers in, especially when it comes to the most attractive ones (or in this case, the higher paying clients/employers).

So Tuesday will still be my day off, but there's gonna be a twist to it.

Since I need to apply to about 12 to 24 gigs per week, I can either dedicate every day to doing this or just a couple of days to do it. I have elected to dedicate Monday and Tuesday to applying to gigs. I intend to take the entire day off Monday to apply to writing gigs and if I have not hit my 12 to 24 on Monday, I will make sure that number is hit on Tuesday.

I'll keep doing this until I am able to find very consistent writing work or rack up a whole bunch of clients who only want me to write a couple articles a month.

For example, yesterday I applied to 6 gigs. So I need to apply to at least 6 more today.

Either way, I'm on a pretty good pace here: If I can just add 300 or so a week in writing, I'll be at right around 700 or 800 per week.

March is going to be a pretty jam packed month for bowling too, so there is a lot of opportunity there as well.

Another decent week. I busted my ass driving, actually, making the 400+ in 4 and a half days. I had to bowl on Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday, and Thursday was completely booked because I had a date right before league. So I needed to wake up really early and get on the grind as early as I could. But it paid off very well: In between the hours of 8 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon, I made an average of 100 per day driving. Take away the bonuses and stuff, and it was probably about 85.

So if I drove until 6 in the evening (or the entire day) I would be able to make probably 200 or so. Sure its a lot of driving but I don't mind. And if I drove all day? I'd be able to make probably 300 or so easily. But there's no way I'm gonna do this at night; really not interested in getting randomly pulled over (police in Florida do this at night; they just pull people over for any given reason and give people tickets for no reason at all lol) and picking up drunk/drugged up/dangerous passengers. I'm good on that.

I've been putting forth a little bit more effort in acquiring writing gigs. Here's the thing about those: I know that I can easily get hired for some unknown "marketing agency" writing how-to articles and product reviews for .01 to .02 per word. But those articles take all day to write because they are so boring lol. but we'll see. I wouldn't mind backing off driving a bit.

So what I've been trying to do is go after higher paying people/organizations. Trouble is, I literally enjoy writing about everything so it is really difficult to arrive something specific. Cuz if I write about just one topic I'll get bored very easily haha.

I really might go back to the cheapo clients just because it will prevent me from driving so much. My car is kind of feeling the effects of all the driving I do; I've had to replace my power steering fluid every 10 days or so because the radical changes in weather out here causes all the fluids in my car to leak like crazy. Seriously: One day it will be 70 and the very next day it will be 30 haha. It's nothing major, but its still pretty annoying.

Either way, I'm going at a good pace and have already crossed the 12.5% mark. All I need to do is add some writing gigs and win some more of these bowling tournaments and I'm good to go.
