How I Made $1600 Overnight Literally While Sleeping!

image

I promised to write about Bitcoin a little, in the past 24 hours Bitcoin’s price jumped to as high as $306, it’s not a secret that I trade Bitcoin almost on a daily basis, trading Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is one of the methods I have my Bitcoin business built upon.
Online Bitcoin trading is easy and in my opinion “predictable”.
As soon as I say the price jump on my phone, I sold the difference ($10.54) of all my Bitcoins, after the fees and the sale, my peofit was close to $1600.
That’s literally someone’s paycheck for a month.
I’m re-investing this profit tonight since the price is down to $301. That’s an extra 5+ bitcoins with some cash leftover (enough for a nice dinner).
Although I’m about to launch my eBay course, I’m thinking of another course to follow, would you be interested in a cryptocurrency course? Let me know in the comments below.

Don’t Persuade Anyone, Persuade People that Matter

you

While I had to push my eBay Course launch a couple of weeks due to technical issues, we are still going through full power on.

I was watching Derek Halpern of SocialTriggers.com when I heard him saying:

Don’t Persuade Anyone, Persuade People that Matter

His quote resonates with me a lot, I do it every day, I really don’t care how many followers or connections you may have, one good connection that matter is better than 100 people who don’t care about the subject that you’re talking to them about.

I have personally collected over 100,000 emails throughout the last few years, but I know for sure that about 380 of them do care, that’s why I am working to promote my latest launch for the smaller list, because they want to learn, because they showed interest, because they matter.

Bad Will Happen, What Are Your Going To Do?

breathe

Just Breathe.

The reason to get beta testers is to make sure everything is working, not perfectly, but as close to perfect as possible.

My eBay course beta testers were in love with the user interface, the membership portal worked great, however, 3 of the 5 payments did not go through, not only it’s technical issues with the payment gateway, it was also a matter of approval, that payment gateway customer service gave me hell and wasted 2 hours of my time on the phone with them. They said it would be a couple of days to resolve then this may happen again!

I hung up the phone, and just took a long breath.

I then decided to use another payment gateway, it will take 4 to 6 days to setup from beginning to end. This is why I am pushing the launch another 2 weeks, the new official launch date is November 10th.

I am OK with that, I made my peace with it, I learned a while ago that bad things will happen in business, no matter how perfect it is, you just have to breathe and pause for a second, and find a workaround or a solution for it. Everything is going to be fine.

And The eBay Course Beta Testers Are In!

beta-testing

Super excited about my eBay course launch, I first announced it on this blog and on Periscope yesterday and the response was great.

I opened the doors to beta testers (only 5 testers) during my Scope yesterday and within an hour I got 5  people in, I did charge $200 plus the work and feedback they will help me with. By 9pm last night, and only 6 hours after I received another 9 requests, unfortunately I am only allowing 5 beta testers (which I think is sufficient enough), so the extra people would be joining the full program once I launch on Tuesday.

We already started working on testing the interface, and so far (thankfully) no issues, I even got 2 great comments on how awesome it looks.

Tomorrow, we will test the private group.

I’ll keep you updated throughout the launch about everything. And still supper excited.

My Biggest eBay Project Since 2008

In February 2008 I started working on my eBay course that was delivered online by video, it took me about 6 months to launch it back then, we had so much success that we got an offer to sell the entire site with all materials for a lot of cash, that’s when we sold WAHOL.com (stands for Work At Home OnLine). I had a blast creating the course and enjoyed answering questions, the best thing about it was not the amount of money I made, but it was the success of my previous members, and I only sold it after everyone got what they wanted from it. Only 2 years later the company that bought it was almost out of business due to some none related bad investments, I offered to buy the domain back and they agreed.

Ever since I sold it, I had extra time to work on my other ventures, affiliate marketing was a big thing and I was making a decent income with very minimal work, as well as continuing teaching my eBay classes and selling of course.

I have been working with my team on a new eBay course all build from scratch, sharing everything I learned throughout the years. My past clients will tell you I have always over delivered information (good useful info that is), and I can tell you that I really get a lot of joy of seeing results, in fact, I tell everyone how proud I am of their progress.

Today, I am launching my course!

Though everything is completely different from what it was 8 years ago, I made sure I include everything I know that will either start you a business from scratch or expand your business, whether you already sell on eBay or not, this course is for everyone.

Throughout the next 2 weeks, I will share more details about it, but I can tell you now it is completely worth it.

The official cart open date is Tuesday October 27th, and it will close down on Sunday November 1st.

I have a few tiers launching this course, including beta testers, email subscribers, affiliates and JV’s, and then we have a huge ad campaign including online, newspapers and possibly TV spots. If you want to keep up to date, you can do 1 of 2 things:

  1. You can join my periscope if you download the app and follow 1LX. (Psssst… I will be scoping today at 3pm EST).
  2. Sign up for the mail list on the right side of this article.

I will have a few short classes that will be extremely useful for free during the 2 weeks launch, the 2 methods above are the only 2 ways to get the free classes notifications.

I can not tell how truly excited I am about this, it’s going to be awesome 🙂

eBay Seller Hub Is Here

SH-Laptop-Experience

Over the weekend I received early access to the all new eBay Seller Hub on 2 of my eBay accounts.

If you know anything about me, I am a numbers guy, and eBay Seller Hub is the new analytics and business marketing interface from eBay.

It took over 2 weeks for it to work and analyze all my sales and marketing campaign within eBay (on the back end), however, late Friday night I was able to see the results.

I used to use a few 3rd party services and go to multiple pages within eBay, not any more.

The new free interface aggregate all my sales, traffic, marketing, and it even deducts the fees automatically to show my net sales, not only that, I got super useful insights and eBay even gave me some recommendations that (from my own experience) I know it’s actually good recommendations.

If you do not have it yet, you can request early access right here.

It even breaks down my view by sales trends and country, I am really impressed so far, not only that, they will keep enhancing it though 2016 as well.

Enjoy the new Seller Hub.

P.S. Tomorrow we will be announcing something we haven’t done in almost 8 years, it’s eBay related, and it’s AWESOME! Stay tuned.

Play the Damn Music

dk2

I don’t know what kind of music is your favorite, I like a variety, but it is no secret that I am into metal, all kinds of metal, I am also a fan of dubstep.

You think I’m crazy?

For some reason the energy in this type of music transfers into me, it gets me going and fired up for whatever I need to do.

I have been to many concerts in that past few years, best times of my life.

Every morning or before any meeting I play some of my favorite music, and for sure, no matter how I feel, everything changes and I feel like it hit my reset button.

So, whenever you need a pick me up, play the damn music and you will accomplish more.

So What! I Cursed

Sowhat_!

Two never before things I did on my blog post yesterday:

  1. I opened up.
  2. I cursed.

I emotionally opened up about a situation I had in my personal life, I have never done that before. I needed to gt my first and most followed advice out and I needed to confirm it with a personal experience.

I also cursed, I have never ever cursed on any platform, yet I occasionally do it in real life, let’s face it, we all do it at one point or another.

Yesterday’s post was a beginning of a new era for my blogging journey, what did you think about it? Comment below and let me know, I like some feedback.

Never Give Up

nevergiveup

With all the good things that happened to me in the past few years whether it was personal or in business, many of my new friends have absolutely no idea that I hit rock bottom at one point in the last few years. And I mean fucking zero.

I had no job for a long whole, on my own, no family, very few friends stood by me and helped as much as they could, and I am forever thankful for them, but I hit a point where I had no rent money, no food money, was late on bills to the point that I had no heat or hot water at some point, I still remember getting brain freeze from the shower, I even asked the neighbors for an electricity extension. Bank froze all my money, and I was in debt to friends.

However, I NEVER GAVE UP. I know it will be a long road to get back on my feet. And it was, and without a lot of boring details, I found a job on craigslist, revived my eCommerce skills, blogged and did affiliate marketing, moved around 5 apartments, and so on, I did what it took as long as it was legal or legit to become independent again.

It worked. although it took 3 years, it really worked, I learned a lot from it, but my number one lesson is not to give up.

This post is not to brag of what I did or how I did it, this was just to open up and give you this priceless advice.

So, that’s what I will leave you with. Never Give Up. All will be well.
