Well, I guess the best way to start out this new site is to think and act like it’s as popular as Google. You’re heard of Google, right? I’m sure you have. Do I see this site being one of the top 100 sites on the internet one day? Sure, why not. It’s always good to have a big goal. If you don’t have a big goal or something worth getting out of bed for, then stay in bed until you do. (I don’t know if that’s sound medical advice, so yeah, take that at your own risk.)
I’m going to be honest with you, I’ve had a lot of ups and a lot of downs in my online life. I had a rather successful YouTube Channel in early 2011-2012. I made money. I made enough money to quit my job and do YouTube full time. Fine, I made a freaking lot of money. It was more money than I’ve ever seen in my bank account. I’m talking $100K+ made in less than 6 months. For a guy that came from managing restaurants and gas stations, that was an boatload of money. Especially when I was swimming in debt. Side note: There’s two wonderful emotions in life; Love and having ZERO debt. It was great to pay off all of debt. Quite a blessing that I’ll never forget.
Anyways, once I had a mega viral hit about Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez dating, I knew I had to do YouTube for a living. The video currently has almost 50M views! I hit the ultimate YouTube jackpot. I had THE VERY BEST spot in the YouTube search algorithm. My video showed up as a related video after EVERY SINGLE VEVO VIDEO. Remember those good ol’ days of YouTube? My video hung out there for 7 months, and then my world collapsed around me. The YouTube search algorithm changed, and I went from making $100s to $1000s a day to $10 or less a day. That was my first introduction to Google being the boss of the internet. I think that’s when the whole Google Panda think crushed every website out there. I can’t really remember. The following months were a blur. If you have a blog from back then, I’m sure you remember that as well. Vaguely. Ok, you remember seeing your traffic dip faster than ever. Super depressing.
So, how did I bounce back? I kept learning my craft, and learning the Google/YouTube search algorithm. I tried everything you could possibly do and somethings worked great, and others didn’t work well at all. But I kept giving YouTube/Google everything I could. I grew my audience, I grew my social media following, and I grew my channel to over 100M views total. Now you might be saying, “if you have all of that, why are you starting this website?” Simple answer: YouTube is boring me right now. I need a new challenge. I need something that makes me want to jump out of bed again. That’s this website. I’m starting completely from scratch. Including all of my social media. It’s going to be a work in progress at all times, so please be patient with me.
Ok, ok, ok, ok, how does one think and act like a successful person? It’s all about confidence. Remember, this post is “How To THINK and ACT.” If you can keep your head up and play the part, eventually your brain will play the part automatically for you. I know this sounds weird, and is probably not the answer you wanted, but if you stick around, we’ll dive deeper into this on the site. There’s days where I hold my head high and act like my shit don’t stink and there’s days where I should be carrying a can of Glade Air Freshener. It all depends on the environment you’re in. If you’re around your friends, you can be plain Joe Schmoe. If you’re around a bunch of powerhouse clients that you’ve never met before, you have to think and act just as successful as they do. Chances are, they’re playing the part as well. Everyone is blowing smoke up everyone’s butt. Trust me.
