I know this is gonna be a bit different.

But, I want to talk honestly with you about this.

Even if, it’s a bit weird.

I know this woman.

She spent her whole life doing the “practical” thing. Got a good job. Worked hard. Always tried to do the right thing. Provided for her family. She was a good woman.

And, she was miserable.

She never felt fully appreciated at work.

She often found herself working for some unsavory dude… but couldn’t quit because she had kids to feed.

And, the thing that really got her… she always just felt she was meant for more.

That she was capable of more.

And, as the years went by… those feelings grew.

Each day it got harder and harder to get up.

To work hard.

To care.

Until finally at 60 years old… wallowing in regret…

She said [email protected]# it.

And, she quit.

And decided whatever happens… I’m just going to do what I love doing.

My last days will be spent living my life how I want.

And, wouldn’t you know it… not only is she the happiest I’ve ever seen her… more full of life and joy than I can ever remember… she’s also making more money.

Doing the thing she loves…

That she was always told was “impractical”.

And the only regret she has now is she wishes she’d done it sooner.

That’s my mom.

And, if she could talk to you and give you advice on your career. She’d say do it… and do it NOW. Who cares what others say is practical? Who cares what’s the “responsible” thing to do? Who cares what others think you can and can’t do?

Who cares about all the excuses…

And, all the reasons “not to” zipping through your head.

Those will always be there.

If you think you can get that life you dream of and not face those thoughts head on… and tell them to “take a [email protected]#ing hike”… you’re wrong. They are exactly what is stopping you. And, they need a kick in the teeth.

Because, the thing is…

This is YOUR life.

And, the last thing you want to is to spend your last days… soaked in regret… wishing you had just a little more time to make it right.

An important lesson you shouldn’t soon forget.

Anyway, if you’re tired of not living your life on your terms and you’re at that point… ready to do whatever it takes to make it happen… I recommend starting here. I mean seriously… it’s everything you need to know… laid out in front of you, taught in a simple, easy-to-understand manner.

There’s just no reason not to do it.

Go here:

And, make sure you’ll look back years from now and be proud of what you accomplished.

John and I have worked together on numerous projects. John is very quick and efficient and was a pleasure to work with.

Lewis Howes

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.

Chris Aitken

He significantly improved my site through his expert knowledge of PHP, CSS and Javascript. Would definitely recommend John to others.

On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”

Bob Patterson

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.

Ray Edwards

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.
