Well, here it is, in pure black and white, my personal now-page.
Ok ok, black and white besides this beautiful picture of me enjoying a smoothie somewhere near a shopping mall 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 personal belongings and boarded a flight to Thailand - one way.
My personal "now-page" was inspired by Derek Sivers, you can read more about what now-pages are and why you need one here.
Where I Currently Am
I have been continually traveling since 2018.
Currently, I'm back in Hamburg, Germany.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, I was forced to stop travelling and return back home for a while.
Now I'm enjoying some quality time with my family and prepare my next moves... 😉
What My Daily Routine Looks Like
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, I can't follow my schedule to the point.
I take long walks whenever I can, and I try to stay sane and reduce my "news-intake" to the necessary minimum.
Here's my "usual" daily schedule:
For about 6 to 8 hours I'm focusing on growing my online business - every day.
Usually, my "workday" is split in two or three work sprints, with breaks in between.
The rest of the day looks rather random:
Occasionally, I jump in the pool, exercise in the gym (usually some form of weight lifting), walk around the place where I'm staying, getting to know new places and people, enjoy some form of solitude and daydreaming, totally dominate while playing a round of pool (shut up, Andrew! 😉 ).
Sometimes I relax while enjoying a massage or having a great smoothie, I might watch the world go by in a popular spot, sometimes I go for a walk in rather rural areas, often I eat delicious food (mostly Thai), chit chat here and there and - now and then - I just am.
Yep, sometimes I simply do nothing (or nothing special) and still enjoy my time.
I put workday in "" because although I do this - and only this - for a living and to pay my bills, it doesn't feel like work at all.
Quite the opposite, I'm extremely grateful, even on "bad" days, 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! 😀
On most of my days, I feel very grateful, I'm happy to get to know new people, and have a strong sense of accomplishment.
I guess that's because I really enjoy my work, I love helping poeple with their online and affiliate marketing businesses, and 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 affiliate marketing and the work involved with growing an online business.
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.
What I'm Doing Now
While there are a lot of different, small things to do when running your own business, and while there is alyways something that needs to be fixed, something that needs to be re-done, I try to get the stuff that really needs to be done, first.
This month, this specifically means:
Say "Hi!" If You Like To
I want to mention something again, as starting, running and growing an online business can sometimes be a lonely endeavor.
Sometimes you're simply lost, overwhelmed or need a helping hand.
Often, things become clear and obvious, even after only having had a short conversation with someone who's on a similar journey or someone who might be a few steps ahead of you... So:
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, or you simply want to know how to get started, just let me know and we can have a chat.
Thank You For Reading This!
If you're still reading this, you're apparently very interested in affiliate marketing, online business and/or what I am personally doing and working on.
Thank you very much for that, I really appreciate you!
Have a great time and stay awesome,
