LISTEN to me when I tell you this

Do NOT start a product business as your first online biz

There are WAY too many moving parts if you have no experience

Start a service business first

That’s how I did it and it worked pretty fucking well didn’t it?


This is how you do it

First you understand that you get paid for practicing your SKILL

Not for how many hours you work

Then you understand there’s really only 2 skills that matter:


Paid traffic
Pick one and spend ALL your free time learning it

Multiple hours per day

Every single day

The Internet is free

Get creative
While you do that also be teaching yourself sales

It is the basis of everything in business

If you don’t know how to sell you don’t know shit
After 1 month max of doing those things for hours per day

You do cold outreach to business owners

And you SELL them your newfound skill
You do cold outreach to hundreds of people

Do not underestimate the volume of rejection and no replies you will have to endure before you land your first clients
Eventually you land a small handful

Go from broke to making maybe $2k/month

Then $5k

Then $10k

Etc etc etc
Now you can start a product biz

Because now you have the 3 things you need to successfully start a product biz


High ROI skill

Ability to sell

And motherfuckers

That right there is the recipe
