My hypocrisy on niches

If you have the IQ of a salamander… This probably won’t make much sense. People hear something and they suddenly think it applies to every single instance, everywhere, always — no matter what… context and

I just blew up my entire life

Sometimes the best jobs are the biggest killers. Case in point… A couple decades ago now (yeah, yeah… oooold! You shush! :D)… I landed maybe the best job I ever had. I started working for

Why I hate freelancing

Was having this conversation with a client of mine. I was explaining to them why they needed to expand their product line. My most profitable product… the one that’s responsible for a good 40-50% of

My slow, painful death

It started happening a few years ago. I’d hit a wall with my life, my business — everything really. I’d been freelancing for so long it had lost all its novelty. It wasn’t “fresh” and

The case against freelancing

I’m sure you noticed. 🙂 I didn’t show up in your inbox the last 4-5 days like usual. Hell, you’re probably in full-on withdrawal mode at this point! Johnny, Johnny! Wherefore art though, Johnny!? Haha.

My obsession with money

My brother and I were talking about this on the way to the gym yesterday. We obviously both grew up in the same house — except it wasn’t a house at all. It was a

Get off your knees

Stop acting like your client’s servant — like you’re there to kowtow to their every whim and wish and you’re lucky they’ve graced you with their business. It’s not just about having a little self-respect…

Chicks dig this s***

Saw this scrub on Twitter post this namby-pamby bullshizen: === I will NEVER be impressed by your money, car, looks, social status or job title. I’m impressed by the way you treat me and other

Breathing through your rectum

Was reading this article in the New York Times. It was about a study, just published in the academic journal, Med, where Japaneses researchers tested delivering oxygen-filled enemas to severely oxygen-deprived mice and pigs (yes,

Nature’s Quintessential Secret

Ready to get REAL wacky? Haha. Seriously, though, in my early 20s I came across this collection of books. It was from an obscure writer and publishing company — who only sold their books via

Fingerprints of the Gods

Been reading this book… “Fingerprints of the Gods” by Graham Hancock. It’s this interesting look at human history and his argument that there used to be a super-advanced civilization on Earth that created all the

The Tik Tok disease

My little brother is addicted. I avoid the s*** like the plague. Don’t have the app. Don’t watch the stupid videos people send me. Want nothing to do with it. But, him and I work

Here’s a toast to the next recession

Was reading a Ben Settle email the other day… And, he said something that’d make most people, even hard core, Bernie Madoff-types, soil their pantalones. He was talking about a client he’d work with several

The purple cow principle

Lewis Howes mastered this. I first met him at an internet marketing conference around 2011, 2012. Everybody kept calling him the “salsa dancing” guy. “Have you met the salsa dancing guy?” “You should meet Lewis,

I started this 3 days ago, following John’s suggestions, and I gained the Upwork Rising Talent badge in less than 2 days. I have a call with my first potential client tomorrow. Thanks, John!

John is the man! I followed his steps and I am flooded with interviews in a week. I got into two Talent clouds. The very next day, I got an invitation from the talent specialists from Upwork and a lot more. I wanna shout out, he is the best in this. Thanks John for helping me out!

After viewing John’s course, I made an Upwork account and it got approved the same day. Amazingly, I got my first job the very same day, I couldn’t believe it, I thought maybe I got it by coincidence. Anyways I completed the job and received my first earnings. Then, after two days, I got another job and within a week I got 3 jobs and completed them successfully. All the things he says seem to be minute but have a very great impact on your freelancing career.

I’ve been in an existential crisis for the last week about what the heck I’m doing as a business owner. Even though I’ve been a business for about a year, I’m constantly trying to think of how to prune and refine services. This was very personable and enjoyable to watch. Usually, business courses like this are dry and hard to get through…. repeating the same things over and over again. This was a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU.

I’ve definitely learnt so much in 2.5 hours than I’d learn watching different videos online on Youtube and reading tons of articles on the web. John has a natural way of teaching, where he is passionately diving in the topics and he makes it very easy to grasp — someone who wants you to really start running your business well by learning about the right tools and implement them in your online business. I will definitely share with many of the people I know who have been struggling for so long, I did find my answers and I’m sure will do too.

I have been following John Morris for several years now. His instruction ranges from beginner to advanced, to CEO-level guidance. I have referred friends and clients to John, and have encouraged my own daughter to pay attention to what he says. All of his teachings create wealth for me (and happiness for my clients!) I can’t speak highly enough about John, his name is well known in my home.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

John has been the most important person in my freelance career ever since I started. Without him, I would have taken 10 or 20 years more to reach the position I am at now (Level 2 seller on Fiverr and Top Rated on Upwork).
