I’ve been staring at files and my freshly purchased UBot software screen for the last 8 hours, and I think it’s time for a break.
I haven’t written an update on my own lifestyle for a while, so I thought I’d spin this bad boy out to give you a view of my life and what’s to come on the blog.
For the first time EVER recently I’ve been staying out of the clubs, working out, and getting shit done.
For a while there things were starting to feel like an eternal Ground Hog’s Day, where it was just the same thing over and over again. I didn’t know why I was even going out.
It just felt like I was “living up to the legend” of my former self. There was no spark to talk to anyone, and I ended up just falling into bad habits of drinking and letting shit just kind of randomly happen every so often.
I still have most of the month of December off as well, as I’ve set aside a lot of time to work on various business ventures, but as a respite, tomorrow I’m…
HEADING TO VEGAS! (this song just makes me wanna code some )
So I’m loading up my new 24” Briggs and Riley black on black luggage (so sick) and getting ready for 5 nights of mayhem at the Cosmopolitan.
Now I do have some business to do during the day, and as business goes, my entrepreneurial adventures have been full of ups and downs.
I was starting to WIN BIG with my SEO strategy, Haha, I was literally telling people that I felt like I was “printing money.”
And within 24 hours of making that statement, there was a Google algorithm change and my sites all took a giant shit.
5 figure income down the drain in an instant. Nice.
There’s a quote that I can’t seem to remember, but basically it states that you are only worth as much as you ARE. If you had the ability for further financial success, you’d already be there.
So learn new skills and work harder to create more value.
But there is a silver lining to that as well.
It means that once you do it once, and reach a certain level of financial success, you should have the skillset to do it again.
And with new knowledge gained through my previous mistakes, I’m coming back full force to create an EMPIRE online.
I’ve been rounding out my CSS/HTML skills. Check out the cool little Topic rollover icons in the sidebar! Yay!
That only took about 36 hours to figure out.
Now I’m on an automation kick, which has resulted in me starting to learn COMPUTER PROGRAMMING FROM SCRATCH.
Damn, I wish I would have went to school for software engineering or something, so many applicable skills.
I think if I were to attend college all over again, I’d double major in Computer Science and Philosophy.
That’s some hardcore shit. You’d probably be a super attractive candidate for any job or professional school.
Another silver lining with the SEO debacle is that BradBranson.com wasn’t affected at all, so I’ve had more enthusiasm towards building traffic and optimizing landing pages here.
One Million Pageviews!
This site just hit another milestone over the weekend, reaching 1 million pageviews/hits since it’s creation a mere year and a half ago. So that’s pretty sweet that the traffic continues forward.
I’ve finally crossed the 100k monthly unique visitor level as well.
So what’s with all the automation?
I’m trying to streamline a lot of the mundane tasks I’ve been busy with so I can spend more time on CONTENT CREATION.
What does that mean?
I’m gonna start posting more on here again.
My goal, after Vegas, haha, is to start releasing articles about twice a week again.
I’ve been consistent for the last few months with the once a week posts, but with the intensified travel schedule, shorter more frequent posts are going to fit better with that lifestyle.
So expect new content on a regular basis, and check back often to see my constant ramblings and thoughts.
You might as well subscribe to the email RSS feed to make sure you don’t miss any posts!
2012 World Tour
With that, my travel schedule is about to get a little hectic here.
I’m spending a month and a half in Europe, then flying straight to South America for another month and a half.
I’ve also decided to do freetours in every city, so if your city is on the schedule, SIGN UP for some bomb shit!
Expect a lot of raw new concepts on the free tour, which I’ll also try to flesh out on the site here.
Ever wanted to check out the Stockholms, Amsterdams, and Berlins of the world?
Or party in Rio for Carnaval, and summer in Uruguay and Argentina?
I’m lucky enough that my brand is big enough now where I can just kind of pick the cities I want to go to, hence the awesome schedule.
And you should join!!!
I’ll try to get some stories out for ya next week, and hit me up below if you have any specific topics you want me to start hitting, or any other questions about the daily whims of my lifestyle.
