    I?m starting my journey and with the two main goals. The first is to hold myself accountable and the second is to try to be the few % that actually reach their goal. For this journey I will use a pen name from my favorite scientist Nikola Tesla (Tesla Fan - TF). And since I?m a Serb, I lived to see big inflation from Belgrade (The money printers), so I don?t want to use fiat money for tracking since whatever amount I select in fiat money, will be smaller every subsequent day. So in the spirit of Nikola Tesla, I taught 1000kWh per day would be a good target (Of course the equivalent in fiat money). The price of electricity right now is pretty much stable and doesn?t go up or down to much (fiat value goes down), so that is why I picked that for measure and 10 years from now if I still make 1000kWh per day it will be more fiat units, but it will be able the same (or similar) amount of milk or rent for example. The main reason I picked kWh, is that it?s something new to try, and in a way Tesla is the ?father? of modern electricity. :)


    What I?m going to do:


    ? CPA marketing: I have been approved for a few CPA accounts and will put some effort to create landing pages and try traffic to them and try to find a profitable campaign that converts.
    ? Kindle and other e-books: I have published a few nonfiction Kindle e-books and they are selling a few a week so I?m going to put this in higher gear and see if they can be profitable. I did read a few journeys relating to Kindle and hope that this might be the winner.
    ? Info products: as a create my Kindle books I plan to use the same content to create some information products such as watch how I do this. I will then try to sell them on Udemy, SkilShare and similar sites.
    - Freelancing work: I plan to post on freelancing sites to get some money for work and increase the price as my cpa/info products/ kindle get going, so I have more free time. I write copy, landing pages, VSL?s, long form sales letters, sales scripts, webinars, make sales funnels etc.. It?s time consuming, but I plan to keep doing it to pay the bills till I can transition to do this work only for myself.
    - Other ideas: I know this might be dangerous of having too many things but my plan is to laser focus on only a few as they start making money.


    I?m abandoning Adsense at least for now because my niche sites don?t have huge traffic and I think I only have 200kWh in the account so I plan to get rid of it. Maybe I can try later. I plan to put ads that will link to my landing pages then to CPA offers and rotate them and discover which ones will convert. What I have to learn next is how to install a free ad-server so I can then replace adsense with my ads to my CPA offers. I think then I?m more likely to figure out what will convert and get rid of the losers and load more adds for more winners. Maybe group them by niches. I know I saw a few free open source ad servers so I need to install one and learn how to use it.


    Tools that I?m using:


    Dragon Dictate: I?m using Dragon Dictate to dictate my blog posts, articles, e-books and other content.
    Screenflow: I?m using screenflow to make video sales letters and YouTube videos and also for any kind of video editing such as for testimonials.


    OptimizePress: I?m using optimize press for sales letters, squeeze pages and landing pages. I am looking to test a few alternatives like Leadpages, ClickFunnels etc..


    CPV Lab: I have CPV lab installed on my VPS hosting account and it works. I?m not totally pro at it but I can do basic split tests of landing pages and and basic tracking. If my CPA biz takes off I might upgrade to something better, but for now this will have to do. I do use it to track info biz sales if I sell it, and I can track how many leads I send to amazon but I can?t put a tracking pixel on Amazon (such a shame).


    Andrea Noise Canceling Mic: I use this one because it gives me the best sound when it does cancel quite a bit of the background noise. Also it pretty much works with any computer I have tried it with. The sound is not as good but with the professional microphones, however it?s good enough. When I work from Belgrade what sucks is the apartments are so loud and insulation sucks you can hear the people walking up stairs or arguing in the hallways, so that is the main reason to use noise canceling.


    NOTE1: If you are negative PLEASE DO NOT REPLY. I get plenty of negativity from everyday people and TV when I?m forced to look at a TV (I don?t own one). So only post a problem and a solution how I can fix it, but if you just want to be negative please post on your own thread. The world is negative enough and I don?t need your bad energy, thanks!


    NOTE2: Please don?t ask in PM! Just ask in the thread. I guess this is for later if I do make it. If I fail, then this journey will die anyway (I don?t plan to). So if I make it and you need something from me, post in this thread, I hate the PM?s it?s to time consuming for me and I loose track, people get upset? You get the point?


    So, I?m hoping this will be easier then when Tesla invented Radio or AC generators or radio control etc, It?s just a few some simple profitable campaigns, how hard can it be? That being said, I think it will take a while so be prepared to have some patience. I might not update every day, sometime I write for a few days on the ebooks or info product and will not be updating then might update for the entire week. So be ready for that if you decide to follow this. If no one follows, no problem, I plan to still update just for my own motivation. And if you like it, you are welcome to follow, either way I don?t plan to give up!


    PROGRESS UPDATE (7[SUP]TH[/SUP] of March, 2015):


    - I opened the journey on BHW forum so I can keep myself accountable and use it as a journal.
    - Wrote outline for my info product in Scrivener

    You look more like a die-hard Biber fan who don't know english but is still talking about his songs on an engineering forum.

    Ok, didn?t expect to see any replies but I guess that will make the journey more interesting. Lets start with them:



    Prab1996 what is Biber? In Serbian it?s peper, my favorite spice, but my guess is your not a Serb, so that is not the Biber you are talking about? .


    ==========



    Thanks lilmasta, good to have the support of another Tesla Fan, yuppie!


    ==========



    What I?m smoking? Well I have to keep that a secret :) But thanks for the good luck AnthonyCorleone , hey, you?re not the one from my favorite Mob movie?


    ==========


    Also thanks for the poll votes even that they are negative, it will give me extra motivation to make it :)


    PROGRESS UPDATE (Sun. 8[SUP]TH[/SUP] of March, 2015 p2):


    Starting the real work now:


    RESEARCH REVIVE AD SERVER: I checked out Revive ad server. That took some time but my Adsense is making almost nothing right now and I need to fix that and I think this is the first place I can plug in CPA ads without to much work.


    RESEARCH SKILL SHARE: Also I checked out skillshare to see how it works compared to udemy. What I figured is to try skillshare because if I get it going I can get some residual income where in Udemy you just get one time pops and when they are in they are in for life. But I might be wrong I probably will end up putting info products on both and see what happens.


    BLOG POST: Made one blog post today (myself).


    BLOG BACKUP: I did a few backups of the blog since I don?t like the theme and need to change it, but I?m not sure if the backup is good. I says it is but I don?t know how to verify, I might try to restore on another domain.
    -TD: Research how to copy a blog, or make a clone from one domain to another.


    EBOOK: I wrote more for the ebook and added some new titles for the chapters, they are empty will work on tomorrow. Also dictated tons of content.


    Next will be work on the blog clone, get the 30 day trial of the landing page software to test a few cpa offers, download and install the ad server and write more of the info product which is coming along pretty good for now.

    SPENT TODAY: 0 kWh
    RUNNING PROFIT: 0 kWh
    POLL STANDING: Yes (2) No (4)


    PS: The tally will probably be 0 profit for a while, but I plan not to give up till I figure this out. When Edison screwed Tesla for 50K, he dug ditches and managed to get up and beat Edison. I need to be persistent as Tesla was :)


    TF :D

    Ok, here?s the progress, like I stated in the OP, it will be slow till I get going, so stand by if you are following. Thanks BTW:


    PROGRESS UPDATE (Wed. 11[SUP]TH[/SUP] of March, 2015 p3):


    BLOG: Wrote a new quality post for the blog. Yesterday someone opted in.
    BLOG CLONE: Managed to make a clone of the blog and restore it on another domain with a WP plugin was amazed how fast and easy it was! So that was great.
    BLOG NEW THEME: Ok managed to get a new theme and it works on my phone very well so we will go with that for now.
    INSTALLED AD SERVER: I managed to install an ad server on my server, wow. I was happy it all went well with no problems. Now I have to figure out how to use it, so I?m going to go through some tutorials.


    NEXT:


    - LANDING PAGE: Going to sign up for 30 day test of landing page software since after I put the banners on the ad server I need to drive to landing page before to CPA.
    - EBOOK: Didn?t write last few days, so need more content and I might now just send layout to outsourcer and let them finish. When it comes back I plan to use it to blog post (parts etc?)
