    If you had to start your IM/business journey all over again and could only choose one skill to restart with, what skill would you choose and why? Which skill do you feel has played the biggest role in your success up to this point?

    I'd start a strip club, because my ass cheeks are fabulous and boy can I make them dance or what.

    So yeah, I'd keep my ability to make my butt cheeks dance.

    I wish I still had the drive to work 18 hour days. I wish I still got excited about internet shit. I wish I wasn't burnt out and moulded into a husk of my former self from the past 18 months I've gone through with current employers. I wish I was still proud of the work I did.

    The self pity is strong, take accountability and pursue what you want.

    My obsessive compulsive personality issues. My drive for perfection and minimalistic organization in every fucking thing that I do.

    Every week, I clean the living fuck out of my cubicle. Every now and then someone walks by and comments on how it appears like nobody works in my cube. I don't care. Less mess is less stress.

    I obsessively clean my car. I've got a crate completely full of auto detailing supplies and about 60 microfibers in the back of my hatchback that I use regularly.

    My apartment, don't even get me started. Vacuumed every other day. I do a 15 minute cleanup each morning before I head to work.

    I have all of my income and expenses tracked to the penny across all bank and investment accounts. I also have them projected and budgeted out for all of 2016.

    I have all my client information meticulously organized into folders and spreadsheets. Same with my side projects.

    Organization and efficiency is my skill.
