Uber Is Taking You For A Drive

Is Uber/Lyft A Business Model Or Merely A Hustle? – Beginner Tips

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

I am going to put out a $10,000 bet. If you can prove with evidence that I drive for Uber or have driven for Uber in 2015 or 2016, you get $10,000.

I wrote a book about driving for Uber. The links are below.

I drove for Uber in 2014 for six weeks to do research for my book. What I found out in 2014 was that Uber is a great hustle. If you have a valid driver’s license and can pass a background check, Uber is not a bad thing.

Let’ get into all this stuff people talk about with Uber. Some people say, Uber’s a scam. They talk about all the wear and tear on their car.

If you are Broke Dick Danny and you have no money and all of your bills are piling up, who are you to be choosy?

This is the thing that gets me. There are so many people that want to be a millionaire until it comes time to do the work of a millionaire. The first thing you’ve got to do is crawl, before you can walk. Then, you have to walk before you run. Then you need to run in practice before you start sprinting.

Some people want to go from Broke Dick Danny status to millionaire status in 30 days. If you win the lottery. Ok. But your chances are pretty slim.

I was Broke Dick Danny and I reached a point of practicality. I reached a point where I had to be very realistic. I had no money. Nobody was knocking down my door to give me money. And I needed to make some money. So, I went to do this thing called Labor Pool. Labor Pool is one of these places where you can show up early in the morning and you sit and wait in line for the jobs to come in. Then you can go and make between $30 and $80 for a day. You get paid at the end of the day in cash if you make it back before they close so you can cash your check.

I did that because I realized I was Broke Dick Danny. There are many of you out there who are Broke Dick Danny or Penniless Priscilla and you think you have options, and you have no damn money in your pocket. You don’t have enough skills to command options. Be real.

If you want an online empire, in time you can have that. But. It’s going to take time. It’s going to take hard work.

So, Uber or Lyft may be one of those things to carry you over while you build, because that was 1997 when I was doing that. I was doing that in 1998 and I was doing a higher level of temporary job at the staffing agency. That’s how I got to work at T-Mobile. I did what I had to do until I could do better.

Be real. If you aren’t living a millionaire lifestyle, it may be because you don’t have millionaire skills yet.

Question: Can you explain how I should incorporate for it?

Answer: If you’re going to incorporate Uber and put yourself down as an independent contractor and have an LLC you need to have the LLC and your EIN number before you apply. Maybe Uber will allow it. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend that, unless you’re going to be hiring people and get five, six, or 7 cars, or something that.

I would say to use Uber to carry you over, to pay bills while you build. That’s how I see Uber. Uber and Lyft are hustles.

Some people like Uber and Lyft and they turn it into their full-time thing.

Now, let’s say you are paying your bills and you are no longer broke. You need a money management tool. When you have a bad day, you need to know it instantly. Once you get all of your core bills straight, then I would say while you’re building, get rid of any expenses that are bullshit.

If you’re trying to become a millionaire, fuck cable right now. Fuck cable. You have to make your expenses so small that maybe one or two weeks of Uber covers everything.

You’ve got to have a little money to start this. You also have to have an hour or two a day dedicated to your business.

Typically, when you are building that online business, it takes about 10K to get going. Even when it is fast, it takes about a year to build an online business.

There are some hustles that can turn into businesses, but many hustles will never be businesses.

Unless you’re in a city like San Francisco, New York, or Washington DC with super high volume, you won’t make a lot of money driving for Uber or Lyft.

In vibrant cities, you can drive 24 hours a day. There’s always demand.

When I drove for Uber in 2014, I lived in a wealthy neighborhood. When I started, I woke up at 4am in the morning and I would get three to four airport runs which is $135 to $200 per day before 6ish. Once I figured out the hotspots and about surges, I could average $100 to $200 per day and then do the power thing on the weekends. Back then, driving when you want didn’t work for me.

I tested this. I sat in my car from 10am to 6pm and did maybe $100. Whereas, if I got up at 4am, I could do $180 to $200 before 10am. I tested this a few times.

Question: What were the hotspots you drove in 2014?

Answer: I lived in Sandy Springs. There was this spot at Powers Ferry where the BP station was in that neighborhood. There were a lot of million dollar homes. Who is going to the airport at 4am? The answer is a business person or a salesperson, or someone who has got to go to a business meeting. These are not regular jobs, right?

Another hotspot was on Northside Drive near the Flying Biscuit.

On my best weekend, I did $800. It was during football season.

Uber is not a business model. Driving for Uber doesn’t make you a business person. It’s a job with flexible hours.

Don’t try to make it more than it is. Do it for a bit. Or do it part-time. Have your eye on something else.

When you start your own company, you have more options.

Money Monday – How To Increase Your Income As Fast As Possible

Money Monday – How To Increase Your Income As Fast As Possible

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

I’m about to tell you how I made a lot of money really fast in a bad situation. Years ago, I overbought at the storage auctions and I ran out of money. I just went crazy. It was so much fun.

We had warehouse rent coming up. My partner was losing it because some of the money that should have gone into certain operating accounts didn’t go in. This is why we were broke.

It was bad; really, really bad. We had people to pay. I needed to come up with about 28K pretty quickly.

This has happened before. When you push the envelope, and take your business to the net level, you break some eggs. In the course of breaking some eggs, you create new recipes.

I needed 28K. I put everything on eBay on sale. Everything on Craigslist went on sale. Then, I got on the phone and called a lot of people, because I had a client log. I needed $28K in four days.

Then I started thinking and I said to myself, “Wait. Why don’t I do this all the time?” So, it became a part of the business plan that elevated us above other storage auction people. There’s some serious lessons to be learned in a crisis if you don’t lose your head, and you take action.

There’s a lot of people who look at money as the big thing. They look at money as the endpoint when money is just a byproduct of the journey. Does that make sense?

That poverty mindset comes from a lack of action. If you take fast action, you will have a turnaround.

If you keep pushing – you will create a new norm in your life.

It’s like when you go to the gym that first day and it’s really hard. But, if you keep at it, then a year later it’s like child’s play. You do it with ease.

That’s what happens when you take action and do multiple things as fast as possible. It becomes a new norm.

Most people are fundamentally broke, even if they have a high income. They can’t withstand the blows of life, right? One thing can knock them out. So, you’ve got to increase your income. Watch the stream, The Fake Ass American Middle Class. The reason so many people are so angry and disillusioned is because they were living under a false narrative. Anytime someone says…”Hey, let’s change that false narrative,” they want to cling to the dream versus becoming active.

This YouTube channel has made over $4 million since I started it. My first four months, I didn’t make a damn thing. Nothing. I was working 12, 14 hours a day for four months. I didn’t have a job. I had money in the bank. I want to put that out there with proper context. I had money in the bank, so I was able to devote months to this without worrying. I know that’s not the situation with most people.

That’s why a service business is better for you in the short-term. Let’s just say you live at home with your parents. You’ve got a $40K-$50K job. You need that job to pay your student loan debts, your car, other bills and taxes. Maybe, you can take a trip to Cancun occasionally. But, you can’t really move the needle of your life that much.

This is what you do. You go ahead and keep that job, and then you start a service business. You start a business whether you like it or not because your ass is broke. You have no fucking choices. That’s the thing that cracks me up…broke people who think they have choices. No, you don’t.

A service business is a delivery business. It’s a repair business. It’s about helping people buy back their time. It’s cutting grass. A service business is the quickest way to get paid without waiting for months. You need some kind of service business in conjunction with your job. That’s what you’ve got to do to move the needle and to get a lot more money much faster.

A lot of these higher-level internet marketers don’t get their money from an email list or a YouTube channel. They get their money from what’s called joint venture partnerships. It’s a good business practice. Fortune 500 companies do this stuff all the time. What they’ll do is partner with someone who has a better situation than they do. That’s how they’re making their money.

I’ll give you the blueprint of how I started this YouTube channel. I took my 11 years of experience on how to make money selling stuff online in various capacities. I took that information and created content. I created products. I worked on YouTube, UrbanPackrat.com and in Facebook groups. That’s how I made a lot of money. I didn’t know anybody. At the time, I had no competition.

The fantasy of quitting your job while you go do this business to live the laptop lifestyle and hang out with silicon chested bimbos is not in the cards for most people. It’s just a dream.

The best skill set you can get as a business owner is learning how to sell. It is important to remember that everything is negotiable.

Now, we’re going to talk about the scarcity mindset. The scarcity mindset is not so much that there is no money out there. That’s not it. It’s more about… “I can’t do this because of this.” I don’t know how many times that I have pulled off some stuff that shouldn’t have happened because I simply believed I could do it.

_________

Buy the Never Broke Action Pack. You start doing the stuff. For the people who do the work, who follow the steps, and who do the most action, I’m going to mentor you on that stuff. Part of the deal is, you have to buy the Action Pack. Then, you have to create a daily journal of activities. There can’t be big gaps in there. For the next 30 days, there needs to be 24 days where you’ve done something.

The reason I’m doing this is that if you get the Money Action Pack and start doing the work, your life will improve in 30 days. Your money will improve in 30 days. Your credit will improve in 30 days. But, if you buy the course and don’t do shit, nothing is going to happen. That’s where a lot of people are.

The Action Pack is under the video. I’m going to destroy my old email list. There’s only going to be one list for all the new stuff. Hustler Kung Fu live is the list you need to subscribe to.

Playing Victim Is The Sissy Doctrine

PLAYING THE VICTIM IS THE SISSY DOCTRINE

Bitching and whining without any solution is a recipe for insanity, misery, and depression. It is also the voice of a victim. I don’t think any of you are victims unless you are truly a victim of assault or some heinous crime. The problem is there is a victimhood mentality. It is so embedded that every time you poke it people say…”You’re being unfair. You’re doing something wrong.”

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

See, I used to work in the medical profession. I used to talk to doctors all the time. How do you cure a disease? You can treat symptoms which is not a cure. It’s just going to make you feel better. You could go down to the root cause and cure the source of the disease.

When you are caught up in ideas like… “It isn’t fair” some very interesting things happen. They adopt a position of… “I can’t do x, y, k and z because I’m a victim.

If you want to be a hero, if you want to live a different kind of life, and look at the world through a different prism other than victimhood – go to Hustlerskungfu.com and get yourself the hustler’s bundle, which is everything on the site and everything that is coming.

Let’s jump off into this wonderful world of unfairness and how life is horrible.

I think complaining is part of the process. Some people who have a victimhood mentality think complaining is the process. That’s the big difference.

Before we jump into that, I’m going to give you some example of how things are unfair that you don’t seem to mind. If you are walking down the street and you find $300 or $400 in cash and you are the only person on the street, you look around and no one else is there. You go to a few stores in the area and asked if anyone has lost some money. They’re like…”Nope.” So, you go home and you’ve got yourself $300 or $400. Is that fair? No. It’s not fair. It happens.

Is it fair that you can buy a lottery ticket for $1 and end up with millions of dollars? It’s not fair. But, I don’t hear anybody bitching about that.

You bitch about what you perceive is unfair based upon the benefit.

Now this is going to offend some people. We have people who live in the hood who are living way better than those folks who are living way better than those folks who are living in abject poverty. Abject poverty is you don’t have running water. You don’t have electricity. There’s some places like the Philippines and Thailand where the grids just go out for a few days. Yes. For two days, the power is out. The internet goes down. There’s nothing you can do about it because the infrastructure is shitty.

If you grew up in America and you’re 15, 20, 35 or 40, you haven’t experienced that shit.

Going back to the fair argument, is it fair that you are in the USA and you have all of these opportunities? Yet, some person who comes from abject poverty can come over here and not know the language and within five or ten years be ahead of your ass.

One of the reasons I’m able to do the same thing is because I took note of my Hispanic brothers who used to work for me in the storage auction business. I looked at their work ethic. I looked at the family structure.

I would go to Home Depot and pick up two or three of them to do work. Then, I would give them some flyers to tell them about my great deals. Then they would come on the weekends and spend the money I paid them. Then, they would bring their family. They would come in busloads.

This is my big problem with victimhood mentality. It robs you of the desire to do better. It robs you of the hope that you can do better. It robs you of the hope of having a life that can be so wonderful.

One of the reasons I do these videos is because I want kids to understand that the fucked-up pathology that some of your parents are trying to give you is not true. It’s simply not true.

I’m going to talk about my journey, something I know intimately. When I was stuck in black folk’s pathology, I had some really jacked up thinking. My mother had three kids with three different men. She would never tell me who my father was. She wouldn’t tell me. When she finally told me, it explained a lot.

We were poor. Compared to a lot of people, I had it very good.

One day when I was in the boarding house, I said to myself….”You’ve just got to let this shit go.”

I never blamed my father. My mother confirmed it wasn’t his fault. He never even knew I existed. I just let that shit go. If you don’t have a male role model or father figure, go out and find yourself some male mentors. It will make a difference.

When I let go of the victimhood mindset, I replaced it with the success mindset. You can’t have a victimhood mindset and a success mindset at the same time. I saw a lot of victimology.

This is the thing. You can’t turn back time. You can’t change things that happened in the past. It’s over. It’s done.

So, you have to move forward thinking… I’m going to control my future. I’m going to put together some things that will enhance who I am, will make my life better and create this wonderful awesome experience for me.

You can’t have a victim mindset and a success mindset because if you don’t understand the deal with class, I will break it down for you.

My kids are not going to be around some dirty little trashy kids. Unfortunately, it’s not the kid’s fault. It’s the parents’ fault.

Parents who have freshly scrubbed little kids who speak the King’s English properly do not want their kids around kids who do not. This is why. You spend more time as a kid with your peers that your parents.

Let’s look at the existence of the poor person in America. Being poor in America is one of the most expensive things you can do. I mean it’s crazy expensive because of the cost of everything.

If you’re not doing anything to change it, you’re clinging to it. Life is not fair. Get over it. At times, it works in your favor.

How is life not being fair a good thing? If you start a business and you push – you will be able to make more money in a month, than you did in a year. And, it will be totally, 100% unfair.

Feeling shit is unfair isn’t going to change shit.

You can’t be a hero with a victimhood “V” on your chest.

How To Make Money Online Selling Books And Courses In 2017

How To Make Money Online Selling Books And Courses In 2017

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

In this presentation, I’m going to tell you how to make a lot of money selling books and courses online.  

In 2009, I wrote a book, Making Money A to Z with Self-storage Unit Auctions and the book did really really well which prompted me to create a course, which also did really well.

The problem is… I did the course off of my website and as you start to scale-up, you start running into problems.

That prompted me to look for solutions. One of the solutions I looked into was Udemy. I signed up for the platform and I immediately had problems. I was creating courses my own way. Udemy wants you to create courses in a very standard and formal way so when one of the clients comes to the courses and goes from course to course, there is a similar feel. That makes sense. I totally get that.

It was frustrating for me. But I went ahead and did it. You can’t have your courses as long as you want them.

A new thing with Udemy that did not happen when I was there is that Udemy changed the rules where you could not price your course above a certain point. This happened after I stopped hosting stuff there. I left the site because I got frustrated. What you see is what’s here. I mean, because the thing is – I can’t take it down. It’s still here. I know one course was $300 and Udemy killed the price.

It’s pretty interesting. They will make the thumbnails and stuff for you, so that does work. I’m just telling you about my experience. People have made tons of money with them, but I wasn’t one of them.

I went to Thinkific.com. They are not paying me to say this. This is hands down the best solution I have found. I’ve not tried everything. I looked at Teachable. I looked at other things. In terms of flexibility, if you don’t have a big course, there are other solutions out there. But if you have a robust course, this is your thing.

I have maybe 120 hours on this site. It loads really quickly.

As we go forward, your online courses are going to have to be indistinguishable from a college course. That’s where we are heading.

Many people have the framework. They have curriculum courses and know how to put stuff together, which is nice. As someone who has done this since 2010, the most important thing you need to focus on is your audience and traffic. How are you going to get traffic?

One of the reasons I went with Udemy briefly was I thought I could get traffic from them. I probably got 20 sales. The majority of the sales were from the traffic I sent there. That’s where things became problematic, because of the way they track stuff. If a person visited Udemy before they bought your course, even if you were the one who sent them to the course, Udemy would get half of your money. I was like… Whoa! That upset me.

I left because of the inflexibility. I wasn’t getting students from the pool. It wasn’t working for me. Then when I did my own thing, my income went up by 30 times what I was doing before.

I was also here. Like I said, I like Gumroad. I still have a lot of books and stuff there. I’m not moving them anywhere. It’s just the site doesn’t load as fast as I would like. There’s issues with the catalog because I have so many things, right? So, I just left it alone.

When you create courses online and have to direct traffic, you have to be careful of where you are directing your traffic. This is something I have learned.

When I focus and direct traffic to one spot, it works out amazingly well. But, when you are directing traffic to several sites, it gets to be really crazy.

If you want to make a lot of money selling online courses and books, your first concern is who is going to buy it. That’s the first thing you need to think about. Sometimes, you have people who have experience and they’re really good doing this task or they have experience in this career field, but there’s not enough people online to generate income. That can just be the reality.

When people say, they want to sell courses online, I asked them if they have done their research to be sure there are enough people online to pay them for their services.

So many people start writing a course or a book and they get their Facebook page together. They start Tweeting and they have no clue if there are enough people in their bucket to support their project. Often, they have no idea. This kills many people, whether you are doing a YouTube channel or blogging, or vlogging. It’s all about if there’s enough people who are interested in what you are doing to be sure you will make money.

I had a video that tracked very well and I made a lot of money. The bigger issue was – I didn’t set it up correctly.

The problem was I did not set it up correctly. There were two groups of people that came to the video. There was one group of folks trying to be efficient who wanted to know how to start a business. They were interested in how to do a lean startup. They had money, but they were looking to be more efficient with their resources. That was maybe 5 or 10 percent of the people.

The other 90% had no damn money whatsoever. I created a video that’s doing very well in terms of getting views, driving traffic and drawing an audience that doesn’t have the money to start a business.

Just because you start a business with no cash doesn’t mean it’s not going to be expensive. Your time is the most important resource you have. So, if you waste three months, nine months or two years on trying to start it with no money, you could have gotten a part-time job and got the money in a month to find out if it wasn’t going to work or not.

You’re sitting there working and slaving away for years on something that was never going to work anyway. I see that everywhere. It’s really, really bad.

You have to learn how to generate traffic. There’s only three ways you’re getting traffic.

  1. Organically – which is building inbound marketing content so you can get leads.
  2. Paid traffic – which is paying Facebook, Google, Bing or somebody to get traffic.
  3. Influence traffic – which is getting referral traffic

 

For me, organic traffic is better. From me to you, if you’re going to do this, it’s going to take time. I’m talking months or years. If you’re going to circumvent that, it is going to take money. You are going to need money and guidance.

If you want to put together some stuff and sell it online, here are some tips for you. Depending on who your crowd is, you might want to tighten your game up locally before you go online.

Start locally. Put some content out. YouTube is an inbound marketing device. A podcast is an inbound marketing device. You are going to have to pay for traffic or you are going to have to start going to events to get to know people for client work and referrals.

It’s an amazing opportunity that we have right now.
