We have a group of 100+ members. Some are Alpha 2.0 and the rest will be in time.

Thing is it's hard to reach Alpha 2.0 when you're just getting over SP and still need to generate income streams.

So let's talk money-making ideas so that we can help each other build businesses, make money on the side, and/or launch new projects that benefit the Alpha agenda.

When you talk money with people who love making money, you will eventually start making money too because the obsession will commit you to action.

Let's get it.

Right now money is not my focus.

But here's what I'm doing to build a longterm revenue stream.

1— I have a site where I post about my journey to A2.0. Caleb's work helped me alot, but there are parts of it where I deviate. My idea is to document and share what I've learned. I'll monetize later this summer when I promote the site and affiliate projects. https://cavemanlenox.wordpress.com

2— Learning about trading, specifically to trade crypto confidently. Reading Market Wizards by Jack Scwhager now.

What are you doing that's working or not working to help you earn more?

Stuff that is working:

-Keeping track of every dollar I make and spend. Started doing this when this year started and I was like "well dammit, this is something I should have done like 5 years ago lol"
-Rigidly scheduling my gym sessions, mealtimes, chick hunting sessions and organizing my day. I've actually always done this but it was always half assed and I never really followed through. But now I am following through. I take about 30 minutes each night to plan the next day. On Tuesday (the one day where I block out the entire day for "me" time), I plan the week.
-Not being afraid to charge people I write for more money. I need to start doing this more.

Stuff that is not working:

-Spending money on useless stupid shit, like "treating myself." I mean once a week is fine, but there's no reason for me to do this more than once a week.
-God damn distractions. pr0n, dicking around on social media/message boards (even spending more time than I should on this one) is a pretty bad time suck.

I dig it.

Consistency. Routine. Structure. Cure for all problems. You're doing it brother.

Right now I"m focused on health and dabble in generating real income.

Here's my approach so far:

— Building the blog, which longterm I already see millions in potential. Grabbing the domain this week. https://cavemanlenox.wordpress.com/
— Investing in crypto and learning a whole lot about trading in general through books and colleagues.
— I want to build an IG account specifically for affiliate marketing, maybe tie it into my blog.

This is the way I look it...

First, you need your vision, then you can set your goals, then you break down those goals into as many small chunks as you can so that you have daily action items which constantly drive you to finish your goals.

Second, these are some books I found that helped me:
  • Millionaire Fastlane by MJ DeMarco
  • 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris
  • The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
  • Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert B. Cialdini
  • The 24 Causes of Human Misjudgment by Charlie Munger (actually a speech, not a book)
  • The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau
  • The Essential Sales Letter by Jay Conrad Levinson
Third, you need to identify an idea, and this is what I did:
  • I created a spreadsheet for all my ideas, with some header info, like difficulty to build, who would buy it, would they buy it, how much would people pay for it, and time estimate to build. I then rank all product ideas and only work on the top 2 or 3 until they are done or discarded as not worth pursuing.
  • Everytime I had to do an annoying task and said "Man, I wish this was easier" I put the solution as a product idea in the spread sheet
  • Everytime I saw something that almost worked but had some flaws, I put a better version into the spreadsheet
  • Everytime I heard someone say "Too bad they don't ..." I put it into the spreadsheet
  • If I thought of a book idea, I put it in
  • If I thought of a website idea, I put it in
  • If I saw someone else doing something that seemed to work, I put it in
  • Everytime I thought of an application to build, I put it in
  • Ask people, what kind of a product would they use that made their work life or personal life better, and put it in
The last thing you need to do, and this is where I'm still learning, is product testing before you actually build anything:
  • Add a listing on EBay, see how many hits you get
  • Put the site on Flippr.com, see if any hits happen (don't know the repercussions of pulling something early from Flippr)
  • Try listing an Amazon if you have a merchant account
  • Use Google analytics to find out how many people are searching for that product
  • Search Google, EBay, Amazon to see how many other people are trying to sell it, or something like it
  • Talk to people you know who would need the product, find out if they would buy it, and at what price
  • List it on local classifieds (craigslist, buyandsell, kijiji, facebook, etc.)
If you get hits, execute. This saves a lot time time weeding out the false hopes. There is nothing worse than spending years on a product and finding out no one will buy it.

I'll start.

I'm newly doing the following:

Substittue Teaching — starts September
Sales — 40% commission each year for the lifetime of the contraction
Fiverr —Marketing work mostly

Even getting my BB in the mix and finding her the right position to earn money so we can build the Empire

How about you?
