(Almost) Anything You Want

Freedom

From the beginning of time man has searched for the philosopher’s stone, allegedly capable of turning regular metals into valuable gold.

It’s understandable. We all want to have more and be more.

You could Thanos your way into fewer struggles, leaving the average life, and no more suffering (*finger snap for the win*).

Unfortunately, no one has yet found this “mythical stone.” Maybe it’s hidden….

Dunno. 

Think about this for a second: Why has man searched for this stone since the beginning of time?

Could it be to for the gold?

Maybe to keep us warm during cold winters?

Or have a healthy body?

Gold is not the end of the equation.

Nor it’s the food, the warm, or the health.

It’s valuable because you can use it to exchange fear for freedom faster.

Of course, the stone is a myth. But there’s a lesson behind this.

People want shortcuts to:
* Freedom
* Wealth
* Relationships

And shortcuts exist! They are called books.

Just think about it.

You can exchange fear for freedom by reading and applying new knowledge.

When you learn a skill, you can exchange the acquired knowledge for freedom, wealth and better relationships (it’s like having your personal philosopher’s stone, kinda).

But learning a new skill is not enough.

You need to know HOW to learn.

Most people never realize that the time they spend learning a skill can be shortened DRAMATICALLY.

That in itself makes rapid skill acquisition a highly valuable meta-skill.

Meaning: wealth could pour into your piggy bank faster when you learn your skills faster.

What I created for you could be your own personal “Philosopher’s Stone.”

I named it “Unf*uck Your Learning: Proven Ways To Learn Anything Faster.

Unf*uck Your Learning: Proven Ways To Learn Anything Faster

The Dirty Little Secret Of Making Your First $1000 Online.

José Rosado

There’s something funny about making your first $1000 online.

The rush. The dopamine. The uncontrollable happiness.

This is feeling is only surpassed by what you felt when you made your first $100.

And this doesn’t even come close to the feeling of making your first dollar online.

I’ve been a web designer for more than 10 years. 

I’ve been involved in massive projects, and still, none of them made me feel as I did when I got my first $100 and $1000 doing online business.

Funny how that works.

There’s a simple way to get your first $1000, by the way.

You see, there’s a process behind it.

And it all starts with making the decision to earn money online.

There is a caveat though.

You need a skill or a product you can sell.

Most skills are marketable online. And even if they weren’t 100% compatible with online business, you could always find a sales angle to make them sexy for your client’s eye.

The simple way to start your online business

First, you need to select a hungry market.

The hungrier markets are:
–> Health
–> Wealth
–> Relationships

Second, you need to create an offer.

For example:

If you’re a web designer, offer them a webpage.

If you’re into financial consulting, offer a fancy way to control money.

If you’re into fitness, keep it simple with a “before and after” pictures, then sell some consulting or a short ebook.

The trick is to keep things simple at first.

What if I’m into chemistry? Some chemists know how to make candles and soaps. Make them and sell them to the Health, Wealth, and Relationships markets.

“Dude, what are you talking about?”

Bear with me.

Imagine you’re a chemist and that you want to start selling candles.

How would you sell your candles to the different markets?

It’s all in the wording.

Health → Heavenly Touch: candles for relaxing with lavender and chamomile

Wealth → Touch of Gold: hand-made abundance candles

Relationships → The Flame: kinky candles to spice up your sex life

Let me repeat, It’s all in the wording.

So, I’ll end this post with a quick challenge for you.

  • Write down 3 of your best skills.
  • Choose the one you like the most (flip a coin if you can’t decide)
  • Slap a price tag on a 3 tier offer

AND

Here’s the dirty little secret about making your first $1000 online:

Drumrolls, please.

You have to be a shameless MOFO.

Stop caring about what people will think if you send them a direct message, or send them an email out of the blue.

You won’t see their reaction once you put a target on their back. 

So it’s easier on your ego.

You see, you need to promote your offers. This is the only way to make money online. Promote, promote, promote.

Put your ego aside and post your offers EVERYWHERE.

Then, and only then, people will start throwing money at your piggy bank.

BTW, here’s a second little secret: start small.

Get your first $100 first.

My first experience with making money online was with Amazon Affiliates. I got $3.75. I jumped out of my chair to tell my wife about this ground-breaking achievement. $3.75, fam. $3.75.

If you’re wondering about how to create your offer, I have something for you.

So, if you want to learn:

  • The Simplest Market Research Methodology To Get Into People’s Mind
  • Simple Steps To Create Your Offers
  • The Fastest Way To Select Your Niche

What Reading Dozens Of Books Taught Me

José Rosado

Back when I was 20 years old, I spent an awful lot of time reading all sort of “self-help” books.

I read them all.

Unfortunately, it took me a long time to notice that I was wasting my time by only reading and reading.

“But José, learning time is never wasted time.”

Hear me out.

I wasted time trying to memorize stuff, trying to understand complex topics, getting all flustered up because I thought I was not intelligent enough to learn the new skills I set my eyes on.

You see, people are constantly bombarding you with

  • “Go to College”
  • “You need to pay a teacher”
  • “Study this, or that”
  • “Spend 10 years doing this, and you’ll be rich”
  • “Rote repetition is the only way”

This makes most people get stuck.

In my case, I said to myself, “There must be a faster, easier way to learn new skills.”

The good news is that there’s a better, faster way to learn anything.

And I used these ways to learn the skills that help me make enough money to work from home.

Learning money-making skill is the #1 way to guarantee your success.

It’s not a college degree or memorizing stupid definitions that will help you.

It’s swiftly learning, practicing, and merging some of the following skills: Web Design, Coding, Copywriting, Sales, Marketing, Social Media Ads, Persuasion, and Psychology.

These skill will help you find the success you’ve been looking for.

And there’s a whole bunch of weird techniques to learn them faster and save time.

So, to learn the money-making skills I developed a unique system for Fast Skill Acquisition.

I called this system Unfuck Your Learning.

So get your hands on these weird, but sexy tricks for rapid skill acquisition.

A Powerful Tool I Use to Save Time and Be More Productive And Learn Faster

Guest Post by Ryan Felman (@PathToManliness)

Are you currently planning your goals to set yourself up for a kickass year in 2019?

I know I am, and instead of sitting on my ass waiting for an arbitrary point in time, I have already begun to take massive leaps towards accomplishing these goals.

Why wait?

Don’t let fear of failure stop you from crushing it this year.

2019 will be the year of self-improvement and if you aren’t making progress, you’re going to get lapped by the very hungry competition.

How to make progress fast?

Progress like dropping a couple of pounds, writing thousands of words in my upcoming book and participating in podcasts with the Aionosphere. I have systems in place to be more efficient and productive with your time.

If you don’t have a system, don’t worry, because my man, Jose Rosado has you covered.

Jose has been growing his Twitter account very fast because he is offering a lot of great content to help young men with their missions.

Currently, he has put together an excellent guide to… well…

Unf*ck Your Learning

Because your current method is messed up right? Well, let’s say it could use some improvements.

I immediately purchased this guide myself.

Unique System For Being A Productive Learning Machine

In this guide Jose shares his unique system for being so productive and explains how he has leveraged his Twitter following to make profits.

He has created his very own passive income stream and you can too. If you want to be able to make money while you sleep, you’re going to have to first dedicate some time and hard work to creating something and sharing it with the world. But if you’ve been on the Path to Manliness, I know you have what it takes.

His study techniques are essential in making the most of your time and producing results. In fact, even before reading this I used his law of minimal effort tactic to convince yourself to work when that motivation inside of you is beginning to waver. I use it, and Jose uses it for a good reason. Because it’s effective.

I noticed Jose Rosado a long time ago when he was still building his brand.

What I didn’t realize was how much thought and planning was going on behind the scenes. Jose is a man on a mission and he’s a genuinely good dude, which is why he put together this amazing guide to help you become better focused and driven on your own personal mission.

If you’re tired of sitting on the sidelines and ready to jump in the game, this tool will help you make it happen.

I don’t endorse products too often, so trust me when I say there is a shitload of great content in Unf*ck Your Learning.

I talked about the cycle of adulthood in a previous email and this tool can help you break the cycle.

Thanks for reading! And if you don’t hear from me, have a Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays!

Dear Saray, this is how you create your first website.

I promised to teach my baby sister how to create websites.

This is the first email I sent her.

Prologue

Saray,

It was June 17th, 2005 when I received the call.

“José,” said my father, “your mother just gave birth to your baby sister.”

I got mad!

A couple of months earlier I told my mom not to dare to give birth to you while I’m on my senior class trips.

“Don’t worry, José. We will wait for you”, she told me back then. But, nature had a different plan.

My lousy teenage temper soon began disappearing as happiness started taking its place.

But I still had to wait two full days to meet you.

While I was returning to the capital, I asked my teachers to leave me near the clinic.

It was 5 o’clock in the afternoon when I arrived. The sun was setting, painting the sky apricot orange.

While getting off the bus, I watched as my euphoric classmates screamed with joy. We lived through three wondrous days of enjoying the beach, delicious food, and good company.

I said goodbye to them, knowing that I would never see most them again.

Walked down the bus’ stairs, went to the luggage compartment, took my suitcase and walked towards meeting you.

As I entered the clinic, my heart jumped with joy, and I was able to reach.

I saw you.

Then I carried you for the first time. I swear to God you opened your big, beautiful, pitch-dark onyx eyes and smiled at me.

What a day!

This is the first memory I have of you – thank you for that, my pretty girl –.

I want to continue to see your smile. And that’s why I agreed to teach you how to create web pages.

You’ll love it.

So let’s start this new journey!

First things First

Let’s download a text editor.

A text editor is a software for writing code.

I suggest you use the Visual Studio Code editor – who we’ll call VS Code from now on.

Let’s open https://code.visualstudio.com on our web browser and download VS Code.

Done? Let’s install our new friend then.

Bear in mind that VS Code is available for Mac, PC, and Linux. Therefore, we can use it on different computers and operating systems.

Installed? Yes!

Let’s open it

Black interface?

I imagine that this is somewhat weird for you.

But believe me when I tell you that this will make the time in front of your screen more pleasant. Also, your eyes will thank you.

New File

We have VS Code opened. So, let’s create our first file.

Click on the File menu and choose the New File option.

By doing this, VS Code will create a new file called Untitled-1.

If you wonder why it’s called like that, here’s your answer: we have not saved the file yet, and it has no name.

Notice that the interface changed a bit. We’ll see a new tab with the ugly Untitled-1 name. It will also have a column with the number 1.

I want you to know that text editors assign a number to each row of the file. This is only for reference. Your code will not have those numbers attached.

Therefore, each time we press the enter key within our file, the text editor will add a new row.

Let’s try this out.

Place the cursor on row 1 and click on it. Then, press the enter key five times. Now, our file has six rows.

We will now save the file by pressing the key combination Cmd + S (or Ctrl + S if you are using Windows). Click on the File menu and then on the Save option to continue.

Let’s name it index.html and save the file into some folder.

Why do we use the name index.html?

HTML is the language of web pages.

Internet browsers – such as Chrome or Safari – read the HTML code that lives within .html files. Bear in mind that .html a file extension. A file extension is a suffix at the end of the file name that indicates what type of file it is.

Other file types accept HTML code as well. But, for the moment, I prefer to keep things simple.

Another reason to use the name index.html is that this is the default name of the home page of a web page.

The home page is the page that the internet browser will open when we enter a web page.

For example, if we enter www.rosa.do, our browser will load index.html and show the home page that I created for my site.

On the other hand, if we go to https://rosa.do/about/, the browser will load a different web page.

Keep in mind that a web page is hosted (lives within) on a server.

A server is a very powerful computer. In it, we can store different types of information and files, such as our new index.html.

Servers usually know that index.html is the main page. For this reason, we named our first file index.html.

I will talk more about this topic soon enough. If you want to learn more about it, read the article “Understanding the Index.html Page on a Website.”

Your first webpage

We already save the file and name it index.html.

Let us take a closer look at the interface.

Notice that the Untitled-1 tab now says index.html. This means that we saved the file successfully.

So, what can we do now?

Let’s write the ! (exclamation point) sign on line 1 of our index.html.

As soon as we add the exclamation point, VS Code will show us the following snippet.

What is a Snippet?

A snippet is a programming term for a small, re-usable code.

VS Code has many shortcuts and snippets to help us create web pages.

When we write the ! sign within a .html file, VS Code will know that it has to look for the snippet that we saw in the previous image.

Each snippet has its own shortcut, which is usually a sign, a word or a combination of characters.

Note: snippets are linked to the file type. The snippet that VS Code looks for when we write ! in a .html file will be different from a .css file. In fact, a .css file will not have a snippet assigned to the exclamation point. By the way, we’ll talk more about CSS later on.

Open the Gates!

Let’s click on the snippet (or press the enter key).

Puff! Magic.

We now have our first HTML code.

Let’s change some things.

Let’s replace the code on line 7 with the following one.

<title>My First Website</title>

Then, we’ll add this to line 10.

<h1>My First Title</h1>

Press the enter key and insert this code on line 11:

<p>This is my first paragraph. I am very happy. This is my first website.</p>

Press Cmd + S to save the changes.

Opening our webpage

Let’s find our index.html file.

To speed up the search, right click on the index.html tab. Then, click Reveal in Finder (or Reveal in Explorer if you’re in Windows).

VS Code offers us this option so that we don’t have to search the file on our computer.

Open the file with Google Chrome (if you do not have Chrome, download it here).

Double click the index.html file.

NOTE: The file might open in Safari if you are using Mac or in Internet Explorer if you are using PC. It’s may also open in VS Code.

If the file opens in VS Code or another program that is not a browser, proceed to open the browser (use Chrome) and click and drag the file over it. Chrome will be kind enough to open it.

WELL DONE!

We have just created our first web page.

We’ll talk more about HTML in our next encounter.

I’ll explain in depth all the weird terms we saw during this tutorial (<title>, <h1>, <p>, etc).

For the moment, let’s relax and treasure our new achievement!

I’m proud of you.

I got tired of using hundreds of apps to achieve my dreams. Now I’m only using this one.

José Rosado

Attention entrepreneurs, business owners, and freelancers!

If you’ve spent hundreds of hours searching for the perfect app, if you’ve “invested” all your money on paying for being in the cloud, if you’ve tried dozens of productivity tools, but they’ve all fallen short; then, today you will get to know the app that you’ve been searching for years and that you didn’t know existed.

An App for All

Have you ever had the suspicion that there are better ways – and apps – to organize your day, weeks, projects and life?

I want you to know that there is one.

But first, how about answering these questions?

  • Do you dread the chaos that comes by using many tools at once?
  • Are you tired of wasting your time looking for The productivity app?
  • Do you want to stop spending hundreds of dollars on Google, Dropbox, Evernote, Jira, Asana or Trello?
  • Do you want a money-saving, powerful app –something that was thought impossible– that gathers the best functionality of the others in one place?

During the ten years that I’ve been a web designer and developer, I’ve tried out hundreds of productivity apps hoping to find the MOAPA1.

From the powerful Asana to the useful Trello. From the versatile Jira to the simple Todoist. From Microsoft Word to Google Sheets and Open Office. From the almighty Evernote to the simple Mac Notes. From the spacious Dropbox to omnipresent Google Drive. I’ve used them all!

These apps have served me right… but I always felt that they were missing something. And I never knew what it was until I met Notion.

Meet Notion

Notion is an all-in-one workspace. With this app you can write, plan, collaborate and organize your life and business.

Notion gathers everything you need in one tool.

Bye, Bye chaos!

Have you ever forgotten where you kept that important document? Was it on Dropbox or Google Drive? Or maybe it was in within that one folder on your PC’s desktop?

I admit that this has happened to me many times. But that was my past. My present is different.

Notion says it’s “4 tools in one”. But, being honest, it feels like more.

With Notion you can create notes and documents; manage your knowledge databases; dominate your tasks and projects; and organize your spreadsheets and database in one place.

So say bye, bye chaos.

Notes and Documents

Writing within Notion is a pleasure. My fingers crave writing when I open the app.

The truth is that I did not know that an app could inspire me to write. Notion did.

With Notion, you can add To-dos, links, images, documents and other multimedia into your notes. You can also organize your information swiftly and without breaking a sweat.

The functionality of Notes and Documents is designed to replace Google Docs and Evernote.

Knowledge Base

Have you ever wanted to feed your own Wiki? Or how about having a knowledge base where you can keep your book summaries and ideas?

Besides allowing you to create these types of documents, Notion will let you search within them quickly.

This functionality is likely to help you replace Confluence and Github Wiki.

Tasks and Projects

My favorite functionality!

I love lists. My heart yearns for organizing projects. While creating my projects, I feel dopamine filling my body while I’m creating its to-dos. Dopamine is the substance that tells your brain that you have done an excellent job. So look for dopamine every day.

Notion makes organizing your projects fun and simple. I believe that project managers will love this functionality. And I know that you too could come to appreciate it.

With Notion, you can replace Trello, Asana, and Jira.

Spreadsheets and Databases

If you want to create workflows, if you need devise a potential & current clients database, if you aspire to be on top of the current state of your businesses, then Notion has a solution designed for you.

This app will allow you to keep your records in order. You can also create unique workflows and manage your projects in the way you want.

With Notion, you are your project’s God. You are its creator.

Replace Google Sheets and Airtable with Notion.

And there’s still more

I’ve used Notion for a few months now. During this time, I came to noticed how its creators keep innovating consistently.

Day after day they talk about what they are doing through their Twitter account and their blog.

I’ve seen how extremely useful Notion is. It is the ideal tool for freelancers, as far as I’m concerned. But I also believe it has to potential to be a go-to app for larger companies and projects. Btw, Notions has an awesome price!

In summary, with Notion you can:

  1. Unleash the hidden power that you and your team of collaborators have.
  2. Make more deals. Because you can organize your sales funnel database easily.
  3. Increase your happiness levels. I say this from experience. Few things make me feel better than finding my files and documents quickly.
  4. Save money. Because of all the services that you can replace with Notion.
  5. Upload everything you want, since the paid version offers unlimited space and has no limits for file size.

But why should you fire Google, Evernote, Dropbox, and others?

Pricing

You may already be spending $120 per year on Dropbox, $100 on Google Suite and $ 100 on Asana Premium. Maybe you’re also paying an additional $70 on Evernote.

Save yourself all that hassle. With Notion you can dismiss the other services and save up for your upcoming vacations.

Notion costs $5 monthly for an individual account. And $10 for each team members, for business plans.

In addition, Notion offers a discount of up to% 20 if you pay the full year. Therefore, you could end up paying $ 4 a month for an individual account.

Final Words

It is time to put submit chaos into surrender. You deserve to manage your stuff without wasting your money each month.

Do you want to be a highly productive person? Do you have the desire to fire Google or Evernote? Empower yourself, your projects and your money with Notion.

Seize the day. Manage your assignments efficiently. And be informed of what happens in your company, businesses, and projects.

7 Things I’ve learned from Alexander J.A Cortes

Alexander J.A Cortes

No one is going to Save You.

In other words, no one is going to do the job for you. You must put in the effort.

Alexander’s statement uses fear as the key to igniting your action. His words remind me that things won’t come to me by themselves.

They’ll only come by willing them into reality and by grinding through life with courage and hard work. There is no other way folks. No other way.

Physicality = Mentality

You are what you eat.

Your body is your hardware. Your mind is your software. If you input the wrong stuff into a computer, what do you think your OS will do?

The same applies to your mind. If you eat waste, your thoughts will be waste.

No wonder that depression is the #1 mental problem in the world. We began eating nonsense, and we started experiencing the side effects.

As a rule of thumb, to better your health you should:

  1. Avoid processed food at all cost
  2. Remove sugar from your diet
  3. Sleep at least 7 to 8 hours a day.

After making these part of your daily habits, start working one on the Mastery Trifecta.

Mastery Trifecta

Progress is slow until it’s not.

What you do on a daily basis will compound. And after a while, you’ll notice that what used to take you 3 hours to finish, now takes you 30 minutes.

Skills add up. Scott Adams calls this «Talent Stack». He explains that,

There are two ways to make yourself valuable. The first way is to become the best at some specific skill, the way Tiger Woods dominated golf. But not many of us can be Tiger Woods. So that path is unavailable to 99% of the world.

I recommend a different approach. Most people can – with practice – develop a variety of skills that work well together. I call this idea the Talent Stack.

So how do you upgrade your Talent Stack? Enter the Mastery Trifecta.

Read 1 hour a day

Reading will make you witty, knowledgeable and exciting.

It will ignite your creativity. It will fill up your brain with information, that someday you’ll find useful to your current situation.

Write 1 hour a day

Writing is a form of thinking. It will take you places you wouldn’t have imagined.

Writing you make you scan the innermost part of your conciseness. It will lead the path to a clearer mind,  clearer thoughts and more profound experiences in life.

Train 1 hour a day

Physicality = Mentality.

You are what you eat. You are what you do. You are how you look.

Traning 1 hour a day involves moving a lot and eating correctly. There is no excuse for you not to do it. Whip out a Youtube exercise video and follow it through.

Eating nutritious food is the first habit you should pursue. Follow it up with moderate exercise. Make sure not overexert, as soreness makes most run away from working out.

So train wisely. If it hurts too bad afterward, you are doing it wrong.

Mastery and health = Mentality + Physicality

Overnight success is a myth.

Making a habit of performing well on your reading, writing and, training will ultimately make you a master at your craft.

No one is going to save you. So Push. Push. Push.

Words are more important that one thinks

Some time ago I tweeted a quote from Alexander. He was gracious enough to retweet me (thanks!).

Alexander makes the unattractive (strong legs), sexy (strong legs defy gravity).

As a man, I can certainly feel the need to buy his training programs after reading such eloquent lines.

Writing well has made me win extra cash. It has also developed my talking abilities. I can explain my ideas fluently without hesitation.

By the way, right now I’m overextending my English writing skills, as English is not my first language. But then again, how am I supposed to write well without striking the letters of keyboard day in day out?

Testosterone is good.

Testosterone has a bad rap nowadays. Who knows why. Maybe it has something to do with all the sports scandals involving doping we’ve been bombarded with. Meh…

Nevertheless, men with low testosterone tend to lack energy, stamina, and overall wellness.

As a man, working on leveling up your testosterone will make wonders to your life.

For starters, to optimize your t-levels you should work out, eat nutritious food and eliminate stress from your life. No need for treatment, unless you honestly have a medical condition.

Be authentic

Alexander has risen in Twitter because he’s been authentic. No hiding behind bushes. No mincing words to make you feel good.

Be sure to follow him.
