I had this talk with my parents, last night. Most people have a warped view of what wealth is. I was telling them how my vision goes way beyond just myself. I don’t just want to have made myself wealthy. I want my kids and their kids and their kids and so on… to be wealthy. To build a kind of family dynasty. Where the habits that lead to wealth are just expected. The resources. The knowledge. That’s how legacies are built. And, growing up the way I did, I NEVER want my kids or grandkids or great grandkids to
IIIIIIII know. Get your “scaaaammer” shrieking and eye rolls in since I said the evil phrase: “make money”. Ok, done? Aight… noooow. Had this guy, Chase, email me and ask me this for a blog post he’s writing. Normally, I ignore this stuff. But, I’m feeling froggy. So, I decided I’m gonna answer him. And, this is what I’m going to say: Persistence. The reality is this. No matter how smart you think you are. No matter how good you think your idea is. The likelihood of you succeeding at the very first entrepreneurial thing you try is about 0.00000000000000001%.
I came across this tweet, today: “If I started a shoe brand, understand that I don’t have to be Nike or Adidas. If I profit 65 off 2,000 people every year, I’m at 130,000. And if I capture .003 percent of the market share my grandchildren would be set for life. What we were taught: 20/hr x 40hours = 800 per week. What I’m teaching: 65 product x 40 sales = 2,600.” Funny, I found this today. I’ve been recording a “Freelancing 101” course, which’ll cover the “big rocks” you need to get rolling as a freelancer, and I’ve been looking up a lot

John is a man of integrity, who gives generously of himself to projects and people he cares about.
John is top-notch and a great guy to work with.
John did an outstanding job on my project. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him on future projects.
I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.
Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.
John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.
John really delivers!
John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.
Very professional worker who is extremely knowledgable in WordPress and Wishlist Member. I would definitely hire again.
John is an excellent teacher.
John has a particular knack for the development and training of others.
John and I have worked together on numerous projects. John is very quick and efficient and was a pleasure to work with.
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!
On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”
