The 9:30 to 4:15 - This Is Trouble

The 9:30 to 4:15

Let me tell you a quick story about myself.

That cool? Great.

Before my life of nomadism and jet-setting, I was a computer engineer—and a well paid one, at that! I was young, had a ton of money, a sweet car and apartment, and…

… I absolutely hated my life.

Do you know what my day used to look like when I was a computer engineer?

Well, it was actually just one block from the beach in Santa Monica, California. I was fortunate enough to make good money, and walk to work.

Life could have been a HELL of a lot worse…

But the job was a joke.

After working there for two months, I realized I didn’t need to do much of anything. I ended up lasting about one year and three months, in total.

Want to know how pathetic my day was before I quit?

Well, here you go…

The 9:30 to 4:15

9:00 am: I’m supposed to be at work, but this was the time I was just leaving my house.
9:30 am: Walk into work.
10:45 am: Go to the private roof with my friend and drink coffee for 45 minutes.
11:30 am: Grudgingly go back to work.
12:30 pm: Take my lunch and head to the gym…for an hour and a half. Sometimes I stopped at Chiptotle, too.
2:00 pm: Get back to my desk…be bored…
2:30 pm: Go back to the roof with my friend…AGAIN, for 45 minutes.
3:15 pm: Back to the desk. Anything happen? Nope.
3:30 pm: Go to my car (underground parking). Take a nap.
4:00 pm: The time my boss would leave. I’d make sure to be at my desk in case he stopped by on the way out.
4:15 pm: The boss is gone?! Time to leave!

It might sound okay on paper, but…

I was miserable.

So, I quit.

Insanity, right?

I was 24 years old and making $100,000.

Yeah, some might call it insanity. Actually, many did 🙂

At the time, I had a large “authority” blog. You’re reading this post on it right now. But it wasn’t making much, only $100 or so a month.

I knew I needed to diversify.

So I built my first niche site about various tequila products (what can I say, I’m a California boy who loves his tacos and tequila). Within a month it got it’s first sale.

It wasn’t even a tequila product.

It was a box of “potato chip chocolates” that someone had bought after clicking my link.

I made a whopping $0.56 on it.

The site has done okay since.

But…it was something.

I didn’t want to put all my eggs in one basket of my big site — what if it never got bigger?

That first tequila site didn’t work out. It was successful, but not enough money.

So, I revisited the niche site idea later in the year…

…because my bigger website/blog wasn’t working. I was worried I was going to end up broke, and moving back to California to live with Mom and Dad.

Talk about a nightmare. All those claims that I was insane were…well, about to come true.

Since then, things turned around and the big site really took off.

But by that time, I’d built a small site about living in Ukraine. You’ve heard all about it by now, if you read this blog consistently. I published the first posts, and in few months…this happened.

I don’t have much more to say, other than—click the big orange button below to learn how I did it.
