Mr. Shortcut no more.

One of my good friends that I've known for almost ten years now used to refer to me as "Mr. Shortcut."  I was actually quite proud of the title.  I got through school with honors while never studying more than an hour or two a week.  Figured out ways to take 2-hour lunch breaks when I had a corporate job, and basically skated through life without ever working hard.  

My father on the other hand is the hardest working man in the world.  He would work wake up at 5:30am everyday to make sure he was the first one at work, while being the last one to leave.  He worked hard for the same company for 28 years...and was laid off a few years before retirement, leaving him with nothing and starting over from the bottom at age 54.  I resented him for working so hard for nothing and promised myself I would never blindly work hard, and would always work "smart."  It turned out to be both my shortcut to life as well as my biggest downfall.

At 32 years old, I've finally figured out the balance in life.  Work smart by finding a system that works, then work hard towards it instead of looking for shortcuts.

My Hardworking Trifecta Update - 

Nutrition- Things are going great, even while traveling I've been eating Paleo/Bulletproof.  I've lost 3" on my waist since I started following their plans 100% instead of kind of doing it here and there.  I also have more energy than I'm used to, never get tired, cranky or need to take naps anymore.  

Fitness - I'm in my best shape of my life from doing CrossFit.  I dropped into some CrossFit gyms in Canada and Los Angeles while traveling as well, but I've also been doing a lot of hiking, rock climbing and other fun fitness activities with friends.  I've also been keeping a fitness log so I know if it's been more than a few days since I did anything active.  



Wealth/Business -  It's been almost one month since I made my first sale using Anton's system and I am extremely happy to announce that I've generated $10,000 in sales in my first month!  I've reached my first goal and am on my way to hitting my next target goal.  



Where ever you guys are in your journey, my advice is to find something that works, and dedicate 100% to it without looking for shortcuts.  For me personally these three things have been the best for me.  I'm sure there are pros and cons to the Paleo Diet, doing CrossFit, and Online business, but overall those three things have drastically improved my health, well being, income and happiness so I recommend them all.  

Let me know if anyone has any questions about anything at all.

Warm Regards,

Johnny FD

  1. That's really impressive Johnny! Can I ask what type of profit margin you get in these stores because $12k in revenue in your first month is pretty jaw dropping!

    1. Hey Kev, the profit margins for the products itself range from 25%-30% on average plus a 2.4% Credit Card fee, minus any promotions you run like free shipping or discounts, and advertising fees. So on $10k worth of revenue you can make $1,000-$1,500 in profit on average.

      My plan is to get this store up to $50-$80k in monthly revenue by the end of the year. I had some really good sales this weekend and I'm currently up to $17.6K this month! I'm super excited especially since it's my first month of sales.

    3. Wow, that's stunning - your blogs are an inspiration to me, I bought your book on my Kindle and am planning my own trip at the moment. You seem to pretty much be living the dream!
