Now - What I’m Currently Working On

Here it is, in pure black and white:

My personal now-page.

The picture was taken in Oct 2018, shortly after I quit my last job, got rid of 90% of my stuff and boarded a flight to Thailand - one way.

My personal now-page was inspired by Derek Sivers.

Here you can read more about what now-pages are etc.

I’ll try to update this now-page at least once per month.

Scroll down to the end of this page to see if I made it this month! 😀

Where I Currently Am

I have been continually traveling since 2018.

Due to the pandemic, I am currently traveling through South Europe. That means I’m just a short flight away from my home country, Germany.

As soon as the long-distance travel conditions are acceptable again, I will continue my journey through South-East Asia.

Currently, I’m residing at the Algarve in Portugal.

Obviously, a global pandemic isn’t making travel easier. But after a short break in Germany, I decided to continue going my way.

Usually I’m exploring new places and nice beaches, and like to meet new people when I’m not working on my affiliate marketing stuff - or this website. 😉

What My Daily Routine Looks Like

The pandamic has effected my schedule quite a bit.

I gained some excessive, unnecessary pounds of body fat.

Therefore, I’ve implemented a few strict(er) processes that I know work for me to get rid of that fat.

Besides my work, that’s my focus right now.

To stay sane during this pandemic and news crazyness, I take long walks whenever I can, and I reduce my “news-intake” to the necessary minimum.

Here’s my usual daily schedule: (not set in stone, but a guideline)

  • I get up around 6am
  • For about 6 to 8 hours I’m focusing on growing my online business
  • I try to change my posture frequently and take regular, short breaks, get some fresh air, drink some water, etc.

The rest of the day looks rather random.

What I Am Currently Working On

  • moving all my websites from WordPress to static (more on that in a seperate blog post)
  • deploying the new sites to Google Firebase
  • creating and optimizing a new affiliate campaign within the MMO niche
  • testing a few different offers of a new affiliate network I’m working with
  • preparing accountability documents and meeting with my new email marketing mastermind group
  • finalizing the new Online Business Blueprint (PDF)
  • testing more and finalizing the move to a new email marketing provider
  • creating a new, 10-day email intro campaign and it’s training videos and pages
  • preparing the Black Friday 2020 site and campaign

That will keep me busy for the rest of November.

When I’m Not Working

Occasionally, I jump into the sea or swim a few lanes in the pool, exercise in the gym (I enjoy weight lifting, although I’m not aspiring to become a body builder or similar), go for a 5-8km run or walk around the place where I’m staying…

…getting to know new places and people, or enjoying some form of solitude and daydreaming.

Occasionally, I enjoy playing a round of pool or doing something entirely else.

I might be enjoying a massage or a great smoothie, or… Something completely different! 😊

From time to time, I enjoy going for a walk in rather rural areas.

I really enjoy eating delicious food (I love Thai food!), or just chit chatting here and there.

Sometimes I Enjoy Things That Are Absolutely Not Special

Yep, I’m talking about the stuff you don’t see on Instagram.

I can simply do nothing and still enjoy my time. (wow what a concept, I know!) 😉

I just had a tough time writing about my “workday” because although I do this - and only this - for a living and to pay my bills, it doesn’t feel like work at all to me.

Quite the opposite:

I’m extremely grateful for the freedom that I can enjoy, every single day.

The people around me tell me that I’m genuinely laughing a lot and smiling often. I think that’s fantastic and a good sign! 😀

Most Of The Time, I Feel Very Grateful

I guess that’s because I really enjoy my work, and I love helping poeple with their online affiliate marketing businesses.

It means a ton of fun to me!

That’s why it doesn’t feel like work at all. 😊

Plus, the fact that you are - right now - reading this, truly means a lot to me.

I’m a normal, approachable guy who simply fell in love with CPA/affiliate marketing and the work involved with building and growing online businesses.

So if you feel you’d like to say “hi” or share a few thoughts with me, or you simply want to know how to get started, just let me know and we can have a chat.

Say “Hi” If You Like To

I want to mention something important that - again - no “guru” talks about on Instagram:

Starting, building, and growing an online business can sometimes be a lonely and/or overwhelming endeavor.

At one point, you might be totally lost, overwhelmed, confused, and you need help from a pro.

Often, things become clear and obvious, even after only having had a short conversation with someone who might be a few steps ahead of you…

Therefore:

If you feel you’d just like to say “hi”, or you’d like to share a few thoughts with me, or you have a specific question, just let me know and we can have a chat.

Hit me up on Facebook, LinkedIn or send me an email.
