I’d love to tell you about the time I devoted one hundred hours to observing the wind or how one time I climbed a 10,000′ mountain. Problem with that is, I am obsessed with production. I see this as an advantage rather than a problem though. I’m constantly working on something new. With over 15 websites that I’m responsible for it is pretty easy to find something to work on. Figuring out what the most valuable use of my time is not as easy.
Since the beginning of the year I have completely overhauled WearTheMark.com with a more complete art portfolio. It will probably never be complete in my eyes, but it’s a work in progress that is much closer to making me happy. The layout is sublime and will age gracefully. Hopefully I don’t feel the need to redesign it for a while. There are a lot of new tattoos, paintings, and some sketches up.
I bought some new canvases and paints and should have new paintings done in the very near future. I’m working on one right now that looks like it’s straight out of outerspace, but is actually from deep under the sea. If that doesn’t peak your interest, I don’t know what will.
It’s been about 6 months since I got my How To Take HDR Photos ebook and website up. Since then I’ve sold about 40 books and gotten 20,000 visitors. Pretty amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it. I spent a month solid not sleeping to write and edit the book. After a year of collecting dust I finished the layout and website in about another month. So two months of work, and I’m already making money. Just a little blog upkeep to keep it working. I owe a lot to my good friend Jim Van Wyck for inspiring me to write the book and for recommending the book 4 Hour Workweek which has a very clear guide about generating passive income online. And hopefully I’ve helped a few people in the process too.
