I don’t know if this happens to you, but pretty much every day I wake up and really need a wee.
Usually this is around 5:30am, and it’s usually prompted by Max stirring through the baby monitor.
But… he’s not necessarily waking up.
However, once I’ve become semi-conscious I realise that I need to go to the loo, which makes it really hard to go back to sleep.
So I lie there.
And the longer I lie there the more I think about how much I need a wee.
But I’m really comfortable, and I know that if I get up I will wake myself up more, which I don’t really want to do.
So… I stay in bed dozing, but completely aware about how badly I need to go to the loo.
Which is where I stay until I realise that if I don’t get up and go I am literally going to wee the bed.
Maybe it’s just me, but I kinda hope not 😀
Have a great weekend,
How This Entrepreneur Used His Network To Grow To $1M In Revenue In 18 Months
Many metrics can be misleading, as well as can become false idols we see and subsequently feel pressured to strive for to ‘be successful’.
That being said, if success for you means hitting certain revenue or employment goals, or if you take inspiration from those with rapid and sustained growth, I’d like to introduce you to this entrepreneur who grew his business to $1 million in revenue in 18 months.
Meet Zach Benson, Founder of Assistagram, a personal Instagram management agency. Before launching his company, Benson was a participant on the hit TV show So You Think You Can Dance and taught dance clinics all over the world. He cut his teeth as an entrepreneur by starting an online academy with video modules that teaches dancers and choreographers a step-by-step system to get opportunities to dance globally, as well as how to systemize and turn their passion into a profitable business doing what they love.
Seeing a shift from traditional advertising and marketing to social media marketing, Benson founded Assistagram.
This Amazon Page Quickly Shows Everything You’ve Ever Ordered From Amazon. (It’s My Life Story in $9,588.64 of Online Purchases)
Yes, Google and Facebook have your data. The shock? Amazon has your memories.
I’ve spent $9,588.64 at Amazon over the past 12 years. I know this because I came across a page on the Amazon site that lets you download a .csv file with every item you’ve ever made at Amazon for as long as you’ve been a customer.
Looking through the purchases was an unexpectedly cathartic experience.
First, credit where it’s due: I never would have found this page if not for a story on Gizmodo this week by Adam Clark Estes: I’m Starting to Have Serious Doubts About Amazon Prime, in which–well, as the headline says–he breaks down whether Prime is still worth the now $120 annual fee.
He also mentions this page on Amazon. Make a few quick selections there, and Amazon will quickly put together a spreadsheet that shows everything you’ve ever purchased from Amazon.
(p.s. this has to be done on the Amazon you use, e.g. .com, .co.uk etc. if you can’t get it to work use this Chrome extension)[divider]
An $18 billion investor has 2 simple tips for young people who are serious about growing their wealth over time
Congrats! You’re in your first or second full-time job, financially independent, and thinking about how to grow wealth over time.
For many people like you, investing in a company 401(k) is the best way to set aside money for the future, says John Augustine, the chief investment officer at The Huntington Private Bank, which has over $18 billion in assets under management. Another option, which isn’t only for retirement, despite its name, is an individual retirement account, also known as an IRA.
