Whats been going on?

Today’s menu is…

1. Personal life
2. The information sites
3. SchmuckGame.com
4. Internet entrepreneur friends
5. Goals
6. Advice



1. Personal life
This coming up week end my old brother and I are replacing the head gaskets, timing belt, and water pump in my wife 1996 Kia Sportage. Two weeks ago, the water pump went out and the engine over heated and broke the head gaskets. We are hoping the engine block isn’t cracked, which there is about 10% chance. Wish us good luck!

2. The information sites
Since the beginning, I’ve always enjoyed developing information sites (not adsense ready content sites) with quality content; however, I’ve always been a weak writer so I’ve decided to focus on this weakness and make it into my strength. The first step in focusing on this weakness is by practicing, practicing and practicing. I’ve determined to develop my largest information site project ever. It will be following Jon’s guidelines in his “Applying the K.I.S.S. Method To Your Projects” article:

- Find a Niche
- Research 10 different topics that cover the niche
- Write down 5 main ideas for each of the 10 topics
- Each 5 main ideas only need to be 1 or 2 sentences
- Write an article from each of those 5 main ideas
- Should equal around 50 articles (pages).

So far, I’ve developed the site, researched the 10 topics, and wrote the 5 main ideas. This site is already online and already with only 12 pages has been getting great results. My plan is to develop this niche project then move on to another niche project. All of these projects will have unique content written by me until I’m happy with my skill of writing.

3. SchmuckGame.com
Awhile back, I wrote about hiring my first employee, which is my little brother Matt, to update the site with a new flash game, weekly. Keeping everyone updated, I am very happy in this choice to hiring him. He has been doing a wonderful job and the site has been receiving over 200 unique visitors a day. The most wonderful factor is that the site requires very little of my time so I can focus on other projects (my largest information site).

4. Internet entrepreneur friends
As of right now, I only have one Internet Entrepreneur friend, Khalid. I truly do want to get to know more Internet Entrepreneurs but I’m lazy so if you are one send me a line and we can get to know and help each other.

5. Goals
As an Internet Entrepreneur, I need to set goals for myself. About three months ago, I made these following goals I want to achieve in three months. Well… It will be three months on August 10th, which is only 16 days away.

- Average $10 a day for a month
- Develop a total of 10 websites
- Sell one site for a profit

I should be able to achieve the first two however I’m having problems with the last goal of selling a site for a profit because I don’t like selling my sites. I’ll keep everyone updated on the final outcome.

6. Advice
Discover one of your weaknesses and develop it into one of your strengths. After you’re done with one weakness then begin improving on another. The best way to improve a weakness is by focusing on it.

    I also invest in mutual funds & daytrade stocks.

    Looking to meet real entrepreneurs who have goals & plans to get wealthy before the end of this decade.

  • Smallpotato, your article on goal setting is nice for motivation to get out and start. You wrote, "Do it right now!" that is my favorite saying.

    On the other hand, your article is lacking examples of things to do. Possible just putting examples of thing you have tried or done. At the end, I was left guessing and wanting more.

    All in all, I enjoyed reading your article just keep on practicing.

  • Affiliates R Us, isn't funny how most Internet Entrepreneurs are actually very lazy and still make a living.

  • It's so true that internet entrepreneurs are lazy. I have a nasty habit of procrastinating and starting new info sites before finishing my current projects.

    I like how you outline how you're going to develop your info sites. I'll have to try it out sometime.
