Finishing Two Books, One Hour at a Time
I have a habit of piling on too much throughout the week. And although I’ve been lauded for being able to crank out a lot of content, there’s only so much one man can do. Especially when there are only 24 hours in any given day and the body needs to rest for a portion of them.
How I Intend to Succeed in 2023 with Priorities
Over the past couple of years, I continued to pile quite a bit onto my plate. Whether it was blogging, creating YouTube videos, playing on Twitch, or writing my next book, time slowly grew more and more scarce. And I finally reached a point where a lot of the things I wanted to do didn’t get enough quality time.
5 Reasons Why I Want an External Office as a Writer
I started my writing career on January 1st, 2012 using content mills like Textbroker. A little over a year later, I was able to quit my job at the school district and write full-time. And over the last decade, I’ve come to realize that I truly miss having a regular office job.
Yep, I Still Play the Xbox 360 Kinect for Weight Loss
I know, I know, the Xbox 360 is an old, defunct system that rarely gets any love today. But I can tell you that it’s still an incredible system when it comes to losing weight and getting in some exercise.
Benefits of Having an Author Blog When Self-Publishing

Why I Create 2-hour Blocks of Time for Writing My Next Book
As I have a lot of brands I am trying to build up, my time is at a premium. Not only am I working for myself, but I'm also the Content Marketing Team Lead of a web hosting company. Needless to say, I really don't have a lot of free time for everything I'm trying to accomplish. Regardless of how busy I am, though, setting up blocks of time to write my book has other benefits.
Best Content Types: Every Blog is Different
What kind of content should you write on a blog? It really depends on what works the best for the specific audience. Sure, you can read a few "expert" articles about the top-performing content types. But statistics these experts throw around are always based on averages across multiple industries.
How Much Time Do You Waste in a Day Working from Home?
On any given day, I am managing a lot of different online brands for both myself and my clients. And there are times when I feel completely overwhelmed by the sheer amount of work I often take on. While there are days when I think I've bitten off more than I can chew, I also realize that I do wind up wasting a lot of time in the day.
Treating Myself as the Client
There is no doubt that I put far more effort and time into client projects than my own. After all, they're the ones who are paying my mortgage. Without my clients, I wouldn't be where I am today. However, I also have a ton of projects on my plate that are purely for my own interests. And I just can't seem to pull together the same energy when it comes to my own projects as I do with that of client work.
Week 3 of My 12-Week Fitness Challenge: Not Doing Good
Here I am, a quarter of the way through my 12-week fitness challenge and I've only lost 6 pounds thus far. And this past week was terrible in terms of eating and physical activity. The silly thing is that I know what my problem is, but I just can't seem to stay focused for longer than 12 hours at a time.
