Here it is, in pure black and white:
My personal now-page.
Black and white besides this beautiful picture of me enjoying a smoothie in Chiang Mai, Thailand. 🥤
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.
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…
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.
