If You Have A Job You Hate, You Need This

If you have a job you don’t like and you’re not building a side-hustle to ultimately replace your job, you’re screwing yourself.

Especially because your job gives you the one thing you need to accelerate the results of your side-hustle.


Your job actually gives you the one fundamental resource that can help you scale your side-hustle more efficiently so that you can quit your job faster.

If you have even just a little bit of money left over from your paycheck, you can put that into your business to build your audience and grow your business.

Back when I was but a wee little lad, I had no money because I was a poor college student. But luckily, my studies were easy so I had plenty of time to create organic content to reach my target audience so I built my business that way.

Fast forward to today where I have a six-figure online business with thousands of customers.

Now I write content for fun because I’ve made enough money to create an “attraction machine” that sends my target audience my way through the power of advertising.

I’ve spent close to half a million dollars in advertising for my niche business throughout the years and if I were to start all over again I would have started advertising sooner because you’ll see real results from your products and offers that much faster.

So even if you don’t have a lot of time because you’re busy at work, here’s all you need to get started:

  1. A good offer that people want.
  2. A lead generation system that attracts those people.
  3. A follow-up sequence that engages with, nurtures and converts those people into customers.

If you have all those things in place, even just $5–$15/day in advertising will start generating leads into your “sphere of influence” that’s guaranteed to grow your business.

And best of all, once you set this stuff up it runs on autopilot and all you need to do is work with clients or fulfill your promise to customers through your programs or services.

I make this sound simple because it is easy to set up. The hard part is understanding your customer and knowing how to serve them.

That’s where my Customer Canvas comes in that helps you get laser-focused on understanding, finding, and focusing on your customer so that you can grow your business.

So if you’re worried that you can’t start a business because you already have a job or you don’t think you have enough time to get things up and running, you don’t actually need as much time as you think to get started.

And if you need me to help you set all that up for you, get in touch. I’d be happy to help.
