It's actually amazing to me how many of my big AM buddies all have been competitive in Counter-Strike, Halo, etc. I played CAL in high school myself. Ironically video games is what sent me down the path of wanting to make money. So I could just game all day lol...I know this struggle well. I played Counter-Strike competitively for about 5 years (4 years in college and 1 year after). It was a lot of fun, but I made more money almost immediately after I quit lol
I agree! This is something I have to figure out. Badges sound awesome though We literally have hundreds of lurkers a day already
Pre-Suasion is a fantastic book! I need to reread it. It was one of the 23 books I listened to in 2016
I think this is fantastic advice. I will have people who are brand new who will ask me "I want to make $1000/day", "how can I make $200/day?", etc. I like ambition and think setting goals is good, but it's important to stay grounded. If affiliate marketing was so easy I could explain to someone in an email how to make $1,000/day .... do you think I would be wasting my time answering your email?
Setting goals for learning the steps it takes to be successful. That makes way more sense. Great advice.
Yeah Pre-Suasion is quite interesting. Understanding human psychology is a huge advantage in this space. So if you ever have any recommendations I'll definitely check them out. One way I find good books is use Blinkest which is basically the cliff notes of a book in audio / written form. If the notes are good then I'll buy the entire book and read it. Books that are 95% of back story to make one point kind of tilt me so I really just enjoy books with a lot of meat.
In terms of monetary goals I had those way back when I first was learning about IM but I didn't make any money ironically until I stopped worrying about it and just focused on growing myself. It may sound like some BS but it's the truth and I've had many friends say the same.
