I almost did not write this post. When I sat down to write this post, I realized that this is probably going to come off as some arrogant blabbering post that is nothing but me bragging about my life and my current lifestyle. So while I do think that this post is going to be a real turnoff for many of you, I’m going to write it anyway.
In this post, I’m going talk about a typical day for me as an affiliate marketer. If you have read more of my blog besides just this post, you may already know that I live full time in a camper and travel across North America as I work from wherever I feel like. This is an incredible lifestyle and nothing that I thought would be possible until retirement, but here I am at age 31 living the life. So, what is a typical day like for me? Here goes.
I Wake Up Whenever I Feel Like It
This is one of my favorite aspects of owning an affiliate marketing business. I can’t even remember the last time but I woke up to an alarm clock but I’m pretty sure it was for some reason other than for work. I was probably catching a flight or something like that but I really don’t remember.
When I used to work in an office with the “cushy” 9 to 5 job, I used to have to wake up at about 6 o’clock in the morning so I could get showered, get on the road, and fight traffic for at least an hour to work. The drive home was always a nightmare with the Chicago traffic that I had to deal with.
These days, I not only get up whenever I feel like it, but I start working whenever I feel like it. Don’t get me wrong, I do work in a lot of hours and probably many more hours than I was working at the office job, but it doesn’t really feel like work because I truly enjoy what I do.
I Enjoy The Outdoors With My Dog During The Day
As I write this, we are already in the month of November, but I went for a nice long walk today with my dog wearing a T-shirt. All of my other friends and family back in the Chicago area are already starting to complain about the cold weather, and I got to visit the ocean last week.
I could never understand the concepts of working during the last hours of the day. It never made any sense to me. So now that I own my own affiliate marketing business I decide when I want to work. So the first thing I do after I am showered and ready to start the day is go hiking with my dog. This is pretty much a daily ritual and is the first thing that I do in the morning. It is one of my favorite times of the day.
I Move Everything Outside For A While
After I am done hiking with my dog I generally begin to do some light work such as checking emails and reading up on industry news. While I am doing this, I am almost always sitting outside and working from my laptop. There is no reason to be cooped up in side my trailer when I can be outside under the sun relaxing in my comfy outdoor chair.
After I catch up on some emails and industry news I may write an article or two before I decide to go out on another hike or do something else to just get away from work for a little while.
The Real Work Begins
After my next short break, I will really begin doing the majority of my work. I really get started in the mid-to late afternoon and push through until the evening. I actually really enjoyed doing this and since my dog is Ari worn out from being outside all day I am able to get a lot done without him bugging me. I am also a huge fan of using a crockpot, microwave dinners, or something that I can just stick in the oven, said it, and forget it. That way I do not spend much time cooking and cleaning after meals. This is one aspects of being single that kind of sucks. It would be nice to have somebody around to help me do some chores around the house.
Another Walk With The Dog
After several hours of seriously sitting down and working very efficiently I usually need a bit of a break to clear my mind and get my body moving again. This is pretty convenient for my dog as he is usually about ready for some action as well. So, we go for another little walk and enjoy the evening temperatures that Southern California brings this time of year. This is often the point where I reflect on the day and figure out what I got done and what I really need to get to the next day. Sometimes I will get back to work after taking this walk and I will work sometimes very late into the night. But other times, and more frequently as of late, I do something else instead
My favorite aspect of winding down after a long and hard days work is playing a little bit of Xbox. My game of choice is World of Tanks and after about a year of playing this game I am actually starting to get pretty darn good at it. I love to wind down playing this game And on occasion might even have a beer while I’m playing to help wind down and relax.
I know that this does not sound like an incredibly extravagant lifestyle but it is one of very little stress, I set my own hours, I get plenty of sleep each day, and I make more money now than I have ever made before in my life and any other job. I could not be happier with the way things are going and this is the lifestyle that I want to teach others in this training course. If you have not signed up yet, I very highly recommend it!
