You’ve read multiple books. You’ve done your homework. You’ve sought guidance with that friend you trust.
But the truth is that you still feel you’re not living up to your potential.
Perhaps you fear for your future and you dislike feeling powerless while trying to take full control of your life.
And you might even have reasonable hate for the belief that no matter what you try, you’ll stay stuck in the same place.

Today I will reveal the Non-secret way to make money online.
I remember the first time I had a taste of Internet Money.
I was sitting on my black Markus IKEA chair (best $200 I’ve spent) when I decide to take a look into my Amazon Affiliates dashboard.
And then I saw it. The sales chart had an upward spike.
I made $3.75 on Affiliate sale!
Little did I know that I broke ALL of Amazon’s rules.
Here’s What Happened?
Back then, I had copy-pasted tons of affiliate links to what its now my defunct Pinterest Page.
Funny thing is that I was getting millions of views every month. But I was not making sales.
This lack of sales prompted me to check if my affiliate links were working. So I went into my Pinterest page and clicked one of the pins. The links were working… so I did some digging and I found the reason (I’ll tell in a while).
After the massive disappointment, I did a quick search for a Kindle Oasis I was craving to buy for weeks.
I bought the thing and little did I know that I was going to get some money by buying it.
And that’s how I got my first $3.75 of passive income. I literally paid myself without even noticing, because my own affiliate link helped me earn this money.
Full disclosure: at the time I didn’t know I broke all of Amazon’s rules. Heck, I don’t even know if I broke Amazon’s rules or not. Nor do I care. As I’m not using Amazon affiliates anymore. So I don’t suggest you do this.
Still, the taste of the $3.75 changed everything for me.
“Jose, So What’s The Non-secret Way To Make Money Online”
Enough rambling! Here’s the pure reality of making money online.
Having tons of views on your web site, Pinterest page, Instagram posts or Tweets doesn’t translate into sales.
I mean, my Pinterest account was getting millions of views every month.
BUT! No one was clicking the affiliate link. Meaning I was not driving traffic to the offer.
So, to start making money online, start driving traffic to your offers!
And there it is, my dear friend:
The Non-secret way of Making Money Online is driving traffic to your offers.
No traffic = no sales.
No sales = no money.
No money = you die.
How To Drive Traffic To Your Offers?
Promoting prolifically, of course.
See, you need to shamelessly plug your offers everywhere.
– Facebook ads
– Google ads
– Social media
– Guest posting
I would suggest you give social media a try – because it’s free and easy to use.
For example, here’s how I use Twitter to drive traffic to my offers.
I tweet something along these lines:
If you want to level up your lifestyle…
If you want to live a life of freedom…
If you need to put an end to most of your financial struggles…

“But I Don’t Have Any Followers In Social Media”
You don’t need a huge following to start making gains.
A friend of mine made $450 in profit selling his first ebook (on PRESALE).
Back then he only had 700 followers on Twitter.
Now, how did he manage to make sales?
He took my advice.
Most people who have acted upon my advice has made money online.
“Which advice, Jose?”
Well, I wrote all about them on my Money Mindset ebook.

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.
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…
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
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!
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?
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.
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.
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.
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:
- Unleash the hidden power that you and your team of collaborators have.
- Make more deals. Because you can organize your sales funnel database easily.
- Increase your happiness levels. I say this from experience. Few things make me feel better than finding my files and documents quickly.
- Save money. Because of all the services that you can replace with Notion.
- 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?
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.
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.
Ser papá es lo más difícil que me ha tocado vivir.
Tener en las manos la responsabilidad de cuidar una vida conlleva paciencia y amor. Mucha paciencia. Y mucho amor.
Mi esposa y yo tenemos un acuerdo: ella se encarga de bañarlo, cambiarle los pañales y vestirlo. Yo me encargo dormirlo.
¿Sencillo, no? Creerías que Brenda va en desventaja con este acuerdo, pero te aseguro que es una mujer brillante y jamás caería en la trampa de intercambiar estos roles.
Javier es de esos niños que odia dormirse. En ocasiones dan las 8, 9, 10pm y Javier sigue con la misma intensidad que tuvo durante la mañana. No es su culpa. Todavía no sabe que papá y mamá también necesitan descansar.
Regularmente me descubro pensado, “esto no lo hago por más nadie”, “esto solo lo hago por Javier”, “Dios! qué difícil es ser papá”. Suele suceder de dos a tres veces por semana mientras trato de dormirlo. Y suele venir acompañado con agua en los ojos.
No me siento culpable de mis pensamientos porque sé que hago lo posible por ser un buen papá. No obstante, suelo acompañarlos con agradecimientos por la hermosa vida que entre Brenda y yo hemos cuidado y educado.
¿Ya te dije que Javier odia dormirse? ¿Y que también se levanta hasta 3 veces por noche? ¿Y que yo soy el encargado de dormirlo nuevamente?
En el año de vida que tiene Javier he soñado unas 7 veces. Cada vez que tengo un sueño le cuento con alegría a mi esposa que soñé. ¿Por qué me pone tan alegre soñar? Ja! Soy de los que suele soñar mucho. Pero ya no.
Javier es una estrella y lo amo. Y es nuestro reto de amor. Es mi reto de amor.
Se aprende a ser paciente, muy paciente. Pero a veces la paciencia se oculta y la frustración se desborda como rio durante tormenta. Y ahí es donde entra el trabajo en equipo entre papá y mamá.
Mi esposa y yo nos hemos socorrido innumerables veces cuando esto sucede. Les aseguro que no es algo de lo que uno se enorgullezca. Salir huyendo de tu propio hijo es algo que solemos ver en las películas, pero en la vida real es más común de lo que crees.
Javier, te amo. Te amo tanto que te entrego mis sueños. Todos son tuyos.
Gracias por existir.
Por años, intenté complacer a todos. Luego crecí.
Decir no es un arte confuso y abrumador. Solemos pensar que las personas que dicen no constantemente son negativas o que simplemente no se preocupan por los demás. Pero he descubierto que no siempre es así.
El miedo es el arma de persuasión más efectiva, y por esta razón nos cuesta tanto decir esta palabra. El miedo a ser rechazado es verdadero y siempre está al acecho. Y el resultado de este miedo es decirle sí a todos.
Decir que no es una de las habilidades menos promovidas. Su utilidad no tiene comparación, pero hay que saber utilizarla de manera elocuente, ya que decir no de manera constante pudiera traer repercusiones no deseadas.
Cuando hablo de decir no, me refiero a:
- Decir NO a peticiones de terceros
- Decirse NO a uno mismo
Decir no a peticiones de terceros
He aprendido a decir no de manera muy sutil. Nunca busco herir a los que me rodean, así que he desarrollado algunas maneras para evitar compromisos no deseados y quedar en buenos términos con la persona.
Imagina el momento en que alguien te pide que hagas algo que no quieres hacer. ¿Cómo te escapas de eso? En mi caso, hago lo siguiente:
Primero: agradezco a la persona.
Segundo: le digo que me halaga que haya pensado en mi.
Tercero: procedo a decirle que en estos momentos se me dificulta participar en la actividad y que por eso no podré asistirle. No doy explicaciones.
Cuarto (solo ti piden explicaciones): Digo la verdad: no tengo tiempo, no estoy en humor, o le digo que mis actuales compromisos no me permiten.
Nota: hay compromisos de los que no te puedes escapar. Así que no seas odioso y dile sí a esos compromisos.
decirse no a uno mismo
Decirle no a los enojos, a las riñas, a las obsesiones innecesarias y a las discusiones casuales es un acto que considero casi heroico.
Peco constantemente de dejarme llevar por las emociones del momento. Le he dedicado mucho tiempo y esfuerzo al aprendizaje de autocontrol, pero todavía me falta.
Decirse no a uno mismo es mucho más difícil que decirle no a otra persona.
Pero es posible.
Una manera práctica de decirse no a uno mismo es realizándose preguntas. Las preguntas más poderosas son las que comienza con «por qué». Estas preguntas apelan a nuestra identidad y pocas cosas son más importantes que nuestra identidad.
Los seres humanos somos sentimentales. Nos dejamos llevar constantemente por los sentimientos. Por tanto, no exista técnica o pensamiento infalible que nos aleje de los sentimientos no deseados. Pero sí hay formas muy buenas para iniciar un proceso de autocontrol y de realizar el acto de decirse NO a uno mismo.
Cuando estés haciendo algo que consideras inapropiado, realízate alguna de estas preguntas:
- ¿Por qué estoy haciendo esto?
- ¿Qué puedo hacer en este momento para que mi día sea mejor? (esta es mi pregunta favorita, ya que me invita a la acción.)
- ¿Por qué estoy tan molesto y qué puedo hacer para alegrarme?
- ¿Cómo puedo mejorar mi humor?
El arte de decirse NO a uno mismo es práctico. Así que responder unas cuantas preguntas no es suficiente.
Decir NO es una de las maneras más prácticas de ahorrar tiempo, de llevar una vida más tranquila, de disfrutar los momentos con mayor intensidad y de auto descubrirse.
