Ubermensch Day #10: Deeper Understanding Polyphasic sleep:
Slept for 8 hours today. Apparently polyphasic sleep is not conductive to muscles synthesis, AKA "it kills your gain!. I need to research more indepth into this. More time saved is okay for a slightly slower muscles growth. Exercise:
Went to the gym and did chest and bicep exercises like a boss. My 6 max rep for incline with dumbbells is 52 lbs @ 155 lbs bodyweight. Not a big fan of dumb bells, but I ll strive to push myself harder at the gym. Reading
: 1 hour of reading, read close to a 100 pages. Its a small big ought. Read The Narrow Road by by Felix Dennis, he has a net worth of $500 Million. Anyways, I re-read the book because its the pragmatic and REAL, like Miyamoto Musashi book of Five Rings.
One of my favourite passage from the book is:
Learning foreign language:
Team spirit is for losers, financially speaking. It is the glue that blinds losers together a strategy used by employers to shackle useful employees into their desk
anyone arguing that this is an old fashioned approach to business is either an academic or teacher, probably at a fancy business school. They will be full of hot air and exciting theories
they will never have risk everything they own on the narrow road [ed: road to riches]
An hour of language learning from livemocha.com, really good free site. I realize that, instead of learning formal and super polite form of Korean, I should stick to casual form, this will be faster progression then learned 3 ways of saying Thank you.

Right now theres 3 phases to the business model, and Im stage 1.
The 3 stages are:
1. Building the website and adding the content.
2. Writing the email marketing follow ups
3. Driving visitors to the website (via video marketing and search engine optimization)
Revenues method: Strictly promoting other peoples product for commissions. Theres one vendor that sells a info product that converts well, the commission is $32. I also promote physical products, but the commission is low ranging fro $5 to $10 per sale.
I will be promoting 5 different products so in case if they dont buy from this company, they can buy from another.
Heres what needs to be done:
Content for website progress: 5/50 pages
Email Marketing Follow ups: 1/52 emails
Video marketing: 0/50 videos
SEO Links: 0/50 links
Most important thing right now is writing the emails, which is basically a sales funnel and entertaining e-newsletter rolled into one.
Minimalism: Aside from the obvious necessities, the only material things you really need in life is 3 sets of clothes, a laptop and a cellphone. Everything else is clutter.
To prevent burn out, Saturday and Sunday is a day off. I find Sunday is a good time to do laundry, grocery, and cleaning around the house. Relax and do nothing.
After going to the gym, and eating breakfast, my priority should be building the business. Then the rest of the day can fall into place.
