Doing well on all those goals ^^^

Just finished a take home test that I've been working on for a week. This week it's back to working on the business, which has been slower.

Once I finish the VSL for 51 texts, I'll start getting affiliates to send traffic to it.

Been handwriting copy for 1-3 hours per day for the last 3-4 days, and I can tell it's helping. My emails have been getting better, and after looking back at my older VSL's, I can immediately tell how shitty they are. I'm going to rewrite the re-record the VSL's for both my products, and then work on the new product.

Email open rate is going up.

Leads are up to 160.

Still continuing to make Youtube videos, doing well with the search engines, and the leads are rolling in off search. Fantastic.

After several dozen fuck-ups, I'm finally seeing success in the affiliate game. I'm so happy I could cry.

I've worked so hard for this.

I've gotten 2 affiliates (one with a 5k list and another with a 50k list) verbally committed to promoting me and my products in the next month - 2 months.

I've also got 2 other ones (one with a medium sized list, another with a huge list) to come on the youtube channel to do a show, where I'll give them value and ask for reciprocation.

The affiliate game is exactly what makes sense, but for some damn reason I still had to learn the hard way...

Give them as much value as you freaking can. Do everything you can for them, and they'll feel compelled to reciprocate.

I don't even ask them to reciprocate, I just tell them my situation and ask them for any advice on affiliate marketing, and they go ahead and suggest they can promote my shit.

Business is game.

Life is game.

One of the affiliates told me that my VSL "drew him in" which is a great big compliment considering how much time I've poured into working on my copywriting.

My motivation lacks when I don't see or don't know the correct path to success, but I when I can see the correct sequence of actions I need to take to get to where I need to go, it suddenly makes everything worth it, and the motivation comes pouring back in again.

Taking the actual action is the easy part after that.

The PhD shit is suffering, but I expect by the fall I will have dropped out and be working on this full time. I did some math, and I feel like I can make a living off a list of 4K, at which time I can switch to doing this full time.

The list is at 180 right now. Let's fucking kill it. Need to float on the PhD shit until then.

Sex with the gf has been getting better and better. She had her first orgasm from sex (EVER) this past weekend.

I'm like Ghandi or some shit, making the world a better place.

Amanda and I broke up.

It feels different from last time, though.

We had a fight, she broke it off, saying that we "disagreed on some fundamental things." I agreed. I was pretty pissed at her, and still pissed at her, but in the end, I think it's for the best.

She kept saying "I'm sorry, I hope one day we get move past this."

Unlikely.

That girl was not a good influence on me. Diet-wise, exercise-wise, social-wise, and career-wise.

I'm planning on running train on a slew of girls to drown my sorrows.

Going running with Cass tomorrow. Gonna hit up a meetup tonight. Going to invite another cute girl that showed me a lot of interest at a party to go hiking this weekend.

Time to jump back in with both wheels moving.

Also, I've lost focus on the business in the last week or so, and this is a fantastic opportunity to re-up my game.

Action is going to make this go away as fast as possible.

And the best revenge is success and happiness.

So let's do this.

Update!

Made a breakthrough on SEO traffic.

Learned something new from a dude named Jon Pernberthy or something, went from getting < 5 leads per day to suddenly gaining +40 leads in one day. At this speed my goal of 1,000 leads seems very close, and then it's on to 10,000. Once I hit 8,000 or so, I'm pretty sure I can just drop out of grad school, as the income will be enough to sustain me.

Huge breakthrough, super excited to explore this new tactic and master it.

The girl and I had make up sex and now we're back together.

We resolved a lot of issues, I think it's good and healthy. Relationships are hard, man. Way harder than going out and just banging a bunch of random chicks.

Worth it, though.

LET'S GO!

Update on the last couple weeks:

Social -

Things were Amanda were rocky for awhile, and I was starting to hang out a lot more with other girls. Cassandra, Michelle (girl I met at a party), Marina (Thai waitress girl from awhile back that I reconnected with), Mckenna (new girl that wanted to go tubing together.

This week, things with Amanda hit a high and yesterday we pretty much spent the whole day together. We studied, then went hiking, then ate dinner at her house, and then had a shitload of sex, then went on another night time adventure with 2 of her friends, then she spent the night. I was on cloud 9 from the insane amounts of boning.

People in my social circles are starting to find out about my online business, and I can see why most dating coaches start under a pseudonym. An oversight on my part, but had to learn it the hard way.

Health -

Physical - Been exercising a lot, toned down the lifting a little bit while getting in a lot more cardio. Trying to just maintain all my lifts now instead of making gains, but have definitely been getting more positive responses because of my gains. I get complimented by random dudes (lol), and I actually get opened by girls when I'm out at bars and what not. Aesthetics makes a difference, guys. Lift and dress well.

Mental - Have been happier and in a better state because of increased amounts of social interaction. Good. Gotta remember to stay grateful and self amuse, and be happy with the little things.

Work -

Business has been going well, although production has slowed down because of increased devotion to social time and exercise. List is at 360, which is solid. Just redid my landing pages to be better. Going to continue making videos, and I'm still making regular sales. Got about $2000 saved up.

Going to start pumping money into paid traffic, but have been trying to figure out the best ways. That way, the list can grow exponentially faster. The best has been Facebook paid advertising, but it wasn't even that good. I'm going to try video ads on Youtube, and if that doesn't work very well, going to try Facebook ads again with the new and improved landing page (changed my lead magnet to a video and a pdf instead of just a pdf).

Working on redoing my introductory product, because my product creation and writing skills have increased, I want to make my opening product better. 51 Texts is still selling well. Going to make my first product just a bonus for 51 texts and then make a new product for the introductory training. That might take awhile.

I've also been getting a lot of requests from my followers for an escalation training. That's going to my next product.

I want to hit 1000 leads before starting on my next big product, however.

One of my mentors has offered a sales / product writing job for me for a diabetes company, which I'm super excited about. It would be internet copywriting and supposedly it provides a few grand for the summer, which is solid. If it provides enough cash flow combined with my business to drop out, I'm going to do it.

Exciting. Scary. Feels like jumping off of a cliff. But adventurous and uplifting all at once.

A new journey. A new career. A new life beginning. Perfect for putting the nose down and grinding.

It's been a little bit slow to start, but I'm excited for it and go all out. This is my ticket out. This is my opportunity for career freedom.

I'm gonna make it or die trying.

PhD shit has just been floating about. I'm doing the bare minimum to not get kicked out. I see myself dropping out before the year is over. I don't want to get trapped in the rat race. I think research is boring and predictable. I think my advisor is a tool bag. I think academia is a dead end. I'm not passionate about it. There's no vision that motivates me.

I'm gonna make it.

Some mental notes.

If I spend $1000 per month on rent + food, and need another $500 for random shit, a cash flow of about $1500 per month is probably enough to sustain me. If I can hit that number for cash flow in terms of business and writing, then it's bye bye graduate school and focus on that full time. If I can't, then it's sustain both ventures until the cash flow hits that mark. That's my most immediate goal. Let's do it.

AAAAAAHHHH!

I finally found a source of paid traffic that is converting well!

Video Ads on Youtube are cheap enough... I just got +20 leads off of $30. Completely worth it. I gotta run a small promotion to make sure that these leads convert, and then I'll start bumping up the numbers. Holy shit. This is it!!!!

Also, I've been kind of concerned lately.

Amanda and I have been using the pull out method, and a couple days ago, it got kinda close. The main load was definitely outside the building, but a couple pre-spurts were damn close.

On top of that, the past day or two she's been more emotional, more insecure, and I'm afraid it's the hormones at play.

Could be just me being paranoid.

We'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

My bank account is healthy as far as graduate students go, at about $2400.

So far I'm spending about $25 a day on youtube video ads, which seems to be the most efficient conversion mechanism for me, and getting about 20 leads a day. That seems amazing.

I'm teetering on the edge of just unloading maybe $600 on ads, hitting 1000 leads (on around 430 right now), and then doing 2 promotions to recoup the money. That would be a big decision and a big step. I think I'll start off a little lighter, and go for $100 per day, to see where that gets me.

Wish me luck.

Working on my newest product, starting to think about the branding / USP. It's an introductory product that's going to phase out How to Talk to Women, which I'm going to relegate as either an upsell or a free bonus to 51 texts.

So far the best I've got is calling it "Get Girls Fast", which isn't terrible for a product name but I need to come up with some mechanism for the USP. I'm thinking of "Self Image Transformation" as a way to sell it and as a way to differentiate it from other products, and I think it might work.

Excited about this, video ads was a huge breakthrough for me, made this thing way faster and more scaleable for me as opposed to just straight SEO.

Let's DO THIS.

Business-

The leads I'm getting off of youtube video ads are real and buying, so that's a thing. It's the best and most efficient paid ad service I've found that works for me. Right now around 550 leads, and climbing quickly.

In a week going to do a quick 3-day promotion of my texting product, and then prepare for the launch of Get Girls Fast, the new Flagship Product.

After that, I'm going to decide on an evergreen price... with 3 beefed up bonuses probably around ... $27 ?

That way, there's a low barrier of entry into becoming a customer for all incoming leads.

Every $100 I spend nets me around 70 leads. If just 4 of those buy, then I come out even. If 3 buy and one upsells (don't have an upsell planned yet, don't have any experience on creating and marketing one), then it becomes a profit.

I think the easiest thing may be just to use a "one time offer discount" upsell of my texting product.

Either way, I'm working hard and fast on this new product, and things should take off from there.

Health

Been pretty active recently playing basketball, but bruised my foot and out of commission for several days. Should get new basketball shoes.

Eating kind of shitty, though. I should clean up that act.

Social

The girl and I are doing pretty well, though she's been more stressed with MCAT studying, and a stressed girl is a non-horny girl.

Last Friday night I went out with a my man Jesse, his gf, and a bunch of dudes for Jesse's birthday. It was fun, and when they left afterwards around 9, I met up with my man Z, who I haven't seen in awhile.

Kinda funny, actually, an Asian dude and a black dude trolling around a white washed town.

We ran into Caitlin, a gorgeous half Asian model who I usually run into out at the bars, and we hug and chat. She brings over 3 female friends from Texas, and one is immediately all over me. Unfortunately, she's hideous.

I texted Marina to come out with us, and she agreed. If y'all don't remember, she's the half-Asian Thai waitress girl from awhile back that we dirty danced around and made out a bit. She meets us at the Yeti, looking FINE. It's always a good sign when a girl takes time to put on makeup and dress up real classy when she's coming out with you.

I give her a hug, we all sat down and joked around, and I hop into one of my favorite ways to make things fun... Snapchat face swaps. It's easy, it's fun, and girls always get a kick out of it. Not only that, but my face looks real fucked up on anyone else's face for some reason... especially a girl's.

We joke around and then head to Fusion, my new favorite dance spot, where we all start dancing on the dance floor together. I keep scooting away from Caitlin's hideous friend and dancing more with Marina, and there's a big grin plastered on her face the whole time. It was fun, no dirty dancing though. We moved to Rec room after, where I proceeded to talk in a southern accent for the rest of the night.

This has all 5 girls cracking up, and we play Jenga and dance the rest of the night. I pulled Marina over to the dance floor at one point, doing the old school hold out my hand to lead her trick. She put her hand in mine, but withdrew it a few seconds later. Just means that she's not comfortable with that yet, and needs some more trust and comfort.

We danced, and a couple guys tried to move in on Marina, but like a Tie Fighter she executed evasive maneuvers and dodged them.

At the end of the night, I handed Caitlin my phone and she enthusiastically punched in her number.

I walked Marina to her car, she drove me to mine. We chatted about her work the whole time. She's leaving in October to Thailand to do a teaching gig there, and at the end, I gave her a hug and refrained from doing anything foolish. She said she'd see me for running wednesday morning (tomorrow), to which I had to cancel because of my banged up foot.

Other than that, Cassandra texted me and subtly let me know she thinks I'm handsome lol. I told her she's not too shabby herself, winky face. She said she wanted to meet up this weekend.

Cassandra's friend that I met at a bonfire a couple weeks ago came over last week to play music together, she has a fantastic voice, so I was pretty excited about possibly busking or starting a band, but she showed up at the door dressed up and with makeup on, and I had no intentions of going down that route, so that's a bust.

Mckenna, Alyssa's friend, should be back from San Diego sometime soon, and she said that she wanted to hang.

I think deep down inside, I haven't been completely satisfied with the whole Amanda relationship. There are some things I resent about the relationship, and our communication abilities still aren't at a point where we can healthily solve problems together productively.

That, and although we do have sex every once in awhile and it's great, it's not enough for me. There's still the shame and the self judgement underlying the whole thing, which is why I'm still working to maintain all these connections with other cute girls.

Eh, c'est la vie. These are all fun little side things I'm doing for peace of mind, social interaction, and keeping my skills sharp, and they're good for me, but they're not important compared to really putting my nose down and grinding out the business this summer.

My goal is to quit grad school by the end of the summer and feel financially secure enough to do it.

LET'S GO.

Things have been greatly improved.

My mood / state has improved with conscious effort.

-First thing when I wake up visualization exercise, and then listen to 20-30 minutes of Jason Capital material.

That's it.

It's some powerful shit.

The last two promotions have gone well, and I'm running about even on money spent on Youtube ads and return on product promos.

I'm predicting that when I finish the new flagship product and then use the text product as an upsell, that I'll start coming out ahead, and if the math works out then I'll sink everything into advertising.

I'm not quite sure what to do if it doesn't work out. Probably work on the copy and the targeting until it does? Probably. I know others have done it this way, so continue to work at it I guess.

Gonna get the latest JC products, cuz he da bomb.

1 Year Anniversary with Amanda on Friday. Been a rollercoaster ride, and it's been good the last couple days, I think mainly because my mood has improved. Going to continue working on myself and my state control.

I'm organizing a 3v3 IM bball team, and doing well with health. Let's keep at it.

Gonna pick this journaling thing back up, cuz it's hella important.

I been going through some JC seminar tapes, and it's been very motivating for me. I've picked back up the habit of listening at least 20 minutes in the morning as soon as I wake up, and doing my visualization routine, and it's helped me be in a better state the whole day.

I listen to these new seminar tapes while I do lab work, and it's great. Great environmental exposure.

New habits I'm taking up / re taking up:

Visualization
Good environmental exposure
Cold Showers
Journaling
Affirmations

Things I'm going to add:

Scripting the next day.
Meals with Friends 3x / week.

Going to work on adding the next two.

Exercise has been good, doing a lot of cardio and losing all my gains. I'm gonna lay off bball for awhile cuz it's fucking up my ankles. Gonna switch to running and add in some lifts, and just try to eat a shitload of food.

Business is good, I'm learning. I want to quit grad school and work on this so badly, but I'm afraid. I'm afraid of not having enough money because right now, the financial situation isn't very secure.

I'm finishing up the product, should be a day or two away, and then going to work on the bonuses and the copy, and then automate that shit into the opt in funnel. It should go ...

landing page opt in --> 20 minute content video ---> another 20 minute content video with hero story and a pitch for the flagship product at the end ----> VSL for product with one time discount, with an upsell for my old product with a one time discount....then rework the email autoresponder for a 3 day promotion and repitch the product at the end of the 3 days.

This still seems like it may be 1 month or 2 away in terms of how much work there is, but if I hustle real hard I may be able to do it in like 2-3 weeks or so. Gonna put my nose down and grind.

Been waiting to hear back on the product writing job for the Diabetes thing, but it's been slower than I thought, so the quitting grad school will be delayed for a bit.

Helped 2 close friends move in the past 2 weeks. Feels good giving value to people close to me.

Helped another friend with copywriting / business, he's a bit behind where I am. Also feels good to help.

Things with Amanda have been a lot better, the relationship has been improving, although in jolts and zig zags, much like progress in game or business has. There was another super cute girl that was hitting on me pretty hard. She actually straight up asked out of the blue if I had a girlfriend when we were hanging out. Lol, talk about showing interest.

Once she found out that I did, she backed off significantly. Good for the ego. A little unfortunate since she was quite attractive, but hey, Amanda's incredibly attractive as well. Tough life, I know.

I do sense a little regret about not sleeping around as much as before, as I have missed out on at least 4 super cute girl opportunities, but then I remember that I did live that life for awhile, and I wanted the relationship life with an awesome girl during that. Be happy with what you got, man. Even the sex has been great.

Good, good, good.

All that is irrelevant.

The main focus is this product. Gotta finish it and then start handwriting some copy, planning out strategy and the USP for this product, and how I'm going to set up the VSL. I'm really proud of my last one, for my last product. It's been making tons of sales, it's been converting affiliate traffic, and it's been making me a good chunk of money.

This new one I want to take to a new level, although I'm not sure how.

I know I can write well, but I think the next step is to do more outlining and planning.

What beliefs do I need to install in the prospect?
What emotions do I want to hit?
Why this product instead of any others?

The why me part should be covered with rapport building and authority building, and the why now part will be covered with the urgency I'm adding by only offering the discount for the first 3 days after the opt in.

Big breath out.

I can see the vision. By the end of the year, I want to have a list of 10k leads and be out of grad school, making products, videos, and growing this business like crazy. Big, ambitious goal. Almost at 1k leads right now.

Let's GO, NING. LET"S GO.

FUCK YEAH!

After about 2 months of work, I've finally finished the new flagship product, Get Girls Fast. It's over 160 pages long without graphics added, and I'm very, very proud of myself for the quality of this work. Hell yeah.

I've started adding the graphics, and it's already looking way more professional and high quality and blows my last product out of the water.

I'm setting a pretty bar for myself in terms of the copy, because this is an insanely awesome piece of work, and if I can't sell it, it's worth basically nothing. So I gotta make sure to devote an equal amount of effort to making the copy fantastic and on point.

It's 1 AM, and I'm still excited by this. It's going to change so many lives, and I'm so proud of it.

I will journal about the rest of my life tomorrow, but for now, I'm going to grab some well deserved sleep.

AH! Yes. Life Is FANTASTIC.

My girl just got me a jersey of Stephen Curry for our 1 year anniversary. It might be the most thoughtful gift I've ever gotten. All thoughts of other girls, extinguished.

I'm prettying up the product and it looks SICK.

Was listening to a seminar from JC during lab work today, and a guy named Lin Oeding blew my mind. Inspired me to re up my game.

I'm not fast enough getting up and working in the morning. Gonna get up earlier, get going earlier. Gonna use the pull the curtains thing DB mentioned to me awhile ago. YES.
