Today I share a tip that Andrea taught me about fully enjoying your juicing experience.
It’s been a week since the beginning of this transformation and detox. Today is all about ridding myself of the last few people who constantly spew negativity into the air. The truth is, I don’t have many people at all in my life that I consider negative. I’ve done a great job of surrounding myself with incredible people. However, there are a few lurkers that need to go.
In todays video, Jairek Robbins and I talk about trying to only say nice things to people and leave the garbage where belongs, in the garbage. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all. Of course I don’t always live by this rule and I’m guilty at times of picking on people (it tends to happen when you crack a lot of jokes), but I’m trying my best to only spread good thoughts about people, even the ones I may not like.
Okay, time to go do some paddle boarding with Jairek.
This may seem crazy to some of you, but the truth is… before today, I’ve NEVER ate a salad. It’s funny because many of my friends on Facebook don’t believe me. They can’t fathom the idea that I’ve never actually ate a salad.
It’s a true story. I’ve always been freaked out by salad dressings, and therefore and have even attempted to taste a salad. I know, weird.
Anyhow, todays release is about letting go of limited beliefs such as hating salad and the idea that I’m not a good closer or finisher when it comes to projects. Check out the video below and you’ll see what I mean.
PS: If you have any recipes for dressings that don’t involve vinegar, I’d love to hear them. Thanks.
So, check it out. Here’s a pic of my very first salad…
Yep, I’m giving up. Watch the video to see why.

I’ve been chasing highs for the last 22 years. I don’t plan on stopping. Just changing the game plan a bit.
Oh, and I gave all my weed away today.
This isn’t the easiest thing to blog about or create a video about. Let’s face it, not many people want to talk about cleaning out your colon.
However, it’s something that should be talked about a whole lot more often. So, I’ll take one for the team and do the uncomfortable.
Colonics, Colon Hydrotherapy and enemas are something that can dramatically increase your level of health. Instead of me trying to preach about it, I’d like to link to you someone who’s a bit more qualified about colon health.
Today I’m starting upon a new detox/cleanse. I’m not sure how long it will take place. I reckon it will be a couple of weeks, but I’m hoping it will have residual affects that will last a lifetime.
I want to start off by saying I’m not a health expert, nutritionalist, or someone who tries to persuade others to live as I do. I’m sharing this journey for a few reasons…
1. To hold myself accountable and keep myself on track.
2. To share my stories and transformations with others.
3. To inspire people to seek out vibrant health.
My goals for the cleanse are…
1. To eliminate as much waste as possible.
2. To replenish my cells.
3. To connect with god.
4. To open myself to unconditional love.
5. To get off drugs and alcohol.
I plan on this being a pretty intense cleanse so I’m taking it slowly, step by step. I’m in no rush. So, the first priority of business for me is to decide whether or not I’m a murderer?
Pretty tough question hey!

We’ve all seen something ridiculous like this before… “How to make a million dollars by sitting in your Snuggee and watching Maury Povich all day”.
Sounds great huh? Of course we all know it’s utter bullshit. Or is it?
In my personal experience, generating income on the internet has been the easiest job I’ve ever had. Yes, it did take a couple of years of grunt work, experimenting and educating myself, but once I got the basics down it was off to the races and I never looked back.
After a few years, I pretty much perfected the method of passive income and worked as little as possible to maintain a healthy six figure lifestyle without having to do much of anything.
How was this done?
It was very simple. I just brought people along for the ride. Instead of constantly bragging and boasting about all my achievements and successes, I shared my entire story. Yes, the whole enchilada. When I had issues in my personal life, I openly aired those. When things went south with investments, I’d share that too. And when I had no clue where I was going to rest my head, where I was going to live or what I wanted to do with my life, I’d freely admit it and ask for feedback from those who’ve had more life experience than myself.
What I’ve found over the years is that people will like, trust and buy from you as long as they believe you are genuinely trying to grow and get better each day. People are very helpful and forgiving no matter what your past may look like, as long as you are determined to better yourself and better the environment around you. You’ll almost always have a support group that can sustain your ideals and dreams if you are completely honest with your subscribers and readers about your intentions.
Lots of people think that they need to build a email list of 50,000 to 100,000 people before they can strike it rich. Wrong! For many years my email list never exceeded 6000 people and that group of subscribers helped me live the most amazing life ever. And lets face it, of those 6000 people, only about 800 were actually opening the emails.
You really only need about 1000 people paying attention to your message to really make a big impact. Sometimes even less. The more open and honest you are about your life, the easier it is to start building a community of people that will be willing to help you achieve your goals.
During the last two years I haven’t been selling much of my own products at all. I had a couple partnerships, but those sadly went south. In reality, I haven’t done much of anything but tell my story during the last two years. And because of this lack of work, you’d think my income would be taking a huge nose dive.
But guess what? In just the first two weeks of January I’ve deposited well over my monthly average for the last 5 years. It’s insane. I keep saying… “This gravy train has to run out sometime”, but it seems to keep on picking up steam and momentum despite me putting in less effort than ever.
So how does this keep happening?
It’s what I call “The It Factor” and I have an entire course sitting right here on the issue. I just need to finish this sales video so I can present it to you and others. I really want to share this with you, even if it does mean I’ll have to do a bit of work (arg, I hate that word).
Alongside of The It Factor I also have a program called “Quick Money Hacks” that shows how I pull off quick little tricks for maximum payouts. This is stuff anyone can do if they have a wee bit of hustle in them. For instance, last month I deposited a $8300 check for doing guess what? … I made one 10 minute phone call. Tough gig hey? I’ll show you how I did that in Quick Money Hacks. Once again, I just need to put some finishing touches on it and it will be ready.
If you read my last blog post, you already know I’m not so good at putting the finishing touches on things. I’m somewhat of a slacker. Okay, a big slacker. And it’s not one of those images that I portray to make things seem easier than they really are. I truly am the epitome of a beach bum in the works.
However, thanks to so many of my readers and subscribers I’ve got a ton of great advice on how I can finish up these projects and be happy about them. I truly thank every one of you that emailed, called, texted or left comments on the blog or Facebook. I promise to reply to every single one of them.
Beyond just advice, I’ve got some people that have extended a hand to help me finish up these projects. For instance, my buddy Marshall Wayne and I went paddle boarding and he offered to help me out with some video intros and such for my programs. I’m going to hit him up today after my chiropractor appointment and see what we can bust out.
I’ve had others reach out with copywriting help, graphics, motivation, and some with just a good ole fashion kick in the ass telling me to quick being a pussy and get to work. I appreciate it all, even the not so gentle words telling me to get off my ass and back to the grind.
After a few days of reflection I think I’ve found numerous ways to get excited again about working on some projects. So I sincerely mean it when I say thank you.
Can you really make a ton of money without working hard?
I’ve proven it time and time again. However, (and this is a big however) I’ve been selling things since I was a little kid. I understand hustling, providing value, saving people time, entertaining folks, enriching their lives, etc etc etc. I’ve lived a very full life with tons of experiences that most simply have never had access to. So for me, yes it’s easy. Sometimes I wish I could transfer those skills and talents to others in a quick second but the reality is, you have to live your life to the fullest and then bring that wisdom with you to the table.
So for myself, it seems so simple. But in reality, it’s a bit tougher for others. And most of the time, it’s near impossible for the rest.
Your success is going to depend on your experience in life, your willingness to try new things out and how much people like and believe you. And that part about people liking and believing you is probably the biggest part of the equation.
In the coming days, I really hope I can follow through and deliver you these tools that I know will make your online experiences more fun and profitable. This stuff is the goods. So good. Incredibly good. It’s not fair for me to hoard this stuff when I know just how much of a impact it can make.
So please wish me luck and thanks for the bits of encouragement. It means a lot.
Yep, I said it. I Hate To Work.
Even though I’ve always had decent work ethic and have held down some sort of job since I was 12 years old, I’ve always loathed doing anything that is considered work. I’d just rather play all day and do things on my terms.
Of course this didn’t always fly in the real world and I was forced to buckle down and punch into the time clock in my younger days. But since my career is primarily internet based nowadays, I call the shots and decide my schedule. The problem is, I continually schedule fun days over work about 99% of the time.
It has been nearly impossible to get me to sit down and work for more than a few hours during the last two years. I’m not saying this to brag. In fact, it’s actually become a bit troublesome and a bit of a problem. I’m honestly at a loss on how to get motivated to work.
The day after Christmas I told myself I was going to abandon all social media and communication until I finished a particular project I was working on. I didn’t want to wait until New Years Day to start a big resolution. I wanted to begin right that second. And I did ok for a couple of days. I got quite a bit done, but stopped short of finishing right when I got to the 95% mark.
Why do I always do this? Why am I so good at starting things, but suck at closing? I know I shouldn’t even say these words as they are just reinforcing the idea that I can’t finish projects, but the reality of my life is feeling like the girl in the Van Hagar song “Come On Baby Finish What You Started“.
Anyhow, I know I’m not alone. This trait is very common among people, but it’s one I’d like to conquer. The amount of talent, opportunity and resources I’m squandering away is sickening at times. At other times, I’m like… “Screw it, I’d rather just surf all day, meditate and play with my dog”.
Money does not motivate me. I’ve come to learn that. If it did, I’d be releasing new products every other week. I’m not sure at all what motivates me. I don’t feel like a very motivated person. However, at times I’m totally cool with that because my biggest desire in life is to CHILL.
It seems people work their whole lives so they can one day retire and live the kick back life. Well, I already live the kick back life. Why would I want to disrupt that with working? Do you see my dilemma? No amount of money is going to change my lifestyle right now. I already do everything I want. So there seems little motivation for me to work.
When I get around the ocean I get so blissed out that everything takes a back seat. I have about 450 unanswered emails, Facebook messages, texts, etc etc etc. I’m really sorry if I haven’t gotten back to you. Or am I? I really don’t know. At times I just ignore it and don’t want to let those outside things disrupt my selfish inner flow. Other times it makes me feel guilty that I owe something or a response to the people (to some I really do).
I’m not even sure why I’m telling y’all this. Maybe to just give you a better understanding of how and why I do the things I do. Maybe so I can just understand myself a bit more. And maybe, just maybe if I air out my difficulties in finishing projects a answer will appear in front of my eyes when I’m ready.
Last week I was seriously considering the idea of just giving up everything I’ve built on the internet and marinating on the beach like a monk. It was overwhelming me, causing me unwanted stress and basically cock-blocking my fun. I’m well aware I may sound like a spoiled little brat who doesn’t want to embrace the real world to some people, but I really have no desire to live in what most people consider the real world.
Let me tell you something…
Some people will tell you that mediation is a healthy practice that will help in many aspects of your life. I’m here to tell you it can also make you seem bat shit crazy to other people and make you not give a flying fuck about the outside world. Going inwards can be a very interesting trip and it’s quite possible you may never want to come back. The serenity and calm inside can be so luxurious it makes little sense to return to the daily hustle & bustle of the work force.
So, the only way I see me working is to turn it into a whole bunch of fun. Otherwise it’s just not going to get done. I need to seriously reframe my thinking about my projects and get elated about the opportunity I have to share these things with others.
And I’m reaching out to you to help me in any way you can. Whether it’s just a nice word or encouragement, or a strategy or tactic to get my ass in gear I’m all ears. I really do want to be more productive and share what I have sitting on this computer.
I’m not kidding when I say I have about 12 different products just sitting here ready to be shared, but they are in need of a sales page, or a video, or graphics or something that I’ve been delaying because I’d just rather play.
So, the question I’m asking myself and you is… “How do I turn this work into play?” It’s the only way I see it getting done.
Any feedback would be grand.
PS: If I haven’t responded to a message of yours over the last month, please don’t take it personally. If your message is something that really needs a response, or if I’ve said I would do something for you and forgot, please gently remind me and I’ll do my best to get it taken care of.
