Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction To The Course
00:56

In this video I talk about what this course is going to be about and what to expect.

05:08

In this video I talk about my story and how I got started as an entrepreneur.

Section 2: How To Stop Thinking Like Those Who Work 9-5
04:29

In this video I talk about why I view most people who work 9-5 jobs as "different" and this is because people are so caught up in their regimen they never look outside the box to see what's really possible.

05:03

This is one of my favorite quotes. Take a look at who you spend time with and figure out if they are bringing you up or tearing you down from having success.

Section 3: What You Can Focus On As An Entrepreneur Outside Of The 9-5
02:02

Blogging and building a wordpress site is a great skill to have, it's what I recommend you do when first starting out!

03:34

Building an Amazon niche site is a great way to earn additional passive income.

03:42

Check out my example podcast site at Voices Of Marketing.

03:24

Teaching on Udemy is a great way to additionally earn income outside of your job.

02:29

Use sites such as Skillshare and Udemy to find ideas for helping others with a skill.

01:50

Freelancing is a great way to make additional money outside of your job and generally is very easy to do. Look at UpWork as a source to find new freelance gigs based on your skills.

02:08

Starting a real store with a tool such as Shopify is another great project you can tackle. I show an example dropship store I am building in this video which is a great model for a "hands off" approach to managing a store.

Section 4: Productivity Hacks
01:44

Evernote is an awesome tool for tracking goals and files.

02:07

Nozbe is a great "to do" list productivity tool worth checking out.

02:04

I use Outlook to organize multiple email addresses into one place. This might be worth considering if you have multiple email addresses.

Section 5: Sacrifice & Discipline
02:02

Time is always an excuse a lot of people have for being more productive outside of a job. I talk about making no excuses and just making the time.

02:49

The biggest thing you can do when venturing out of your 9-5 job is becoming more focused on one task or definitive goal.

02:27

Watching TV can be a huge time sink, check out this lecture to hear about my experience with it.

02:18

I've sacrificed playing video games for as long as 30 days multiple times so I could be more productive with my business goals.

01:59

Taking a challenge such as the 30 Days of Discipline will help you save time in your day, boost energy and just overall increase your productivity.

Section 6: Recommended Books
01:31

This is a book all about focusing on one thing, worth checking out!

01:17

This is a book by Pat Flynn of the Smart Passive Income. One of my favorite books!

01:36

This is a great book about taking control of your mindset.

Section 7: Conclusion
01:20

Thanks for going through this course! I hope you've found it to be helpful. Feel free to start a discussion if you have any questions for me.
