The Lost Art of Hard Work

Binge diets for 30-day fat loss.
Get rich quick schemes.
Mail-order brides.
Instant oatmeal.

Everywhere you turn in our society there are quick fixes. If you don’t want to work hard anymore it seems like you don’t have to.

But when you really think about these “easy” options, do they really improve your quality of life?

When you starting looking for shortcuts to get better at something, what are you really doing to yourself?

You immediately start selling yourself short.

A Groundbreaking Idea

If you are looking for a single, mind-blowing tactic you’ve been missing your whole life that will instantly make learning or practicing way easier, you’ll never find it. You’ll waste hour after hour searching.

Here is the best thing you can possibly do to get better at something.

Put in the damn time.

You want easy? Here are three simple steps to follow:

1. Read a book or watch a video on the topic.
2. Go practice in solitude for a few hours.
3. Reflect back on what you learned in a journal.

No excuses. No insomnia from worrying about whether or not you are good enough. No more freaking infomercials.

Doctor’s Orders

Here’s your prescription:

Put in the hard work all day, collapse into bed extremely exhausted, and call me in the morning. I’m confident you’ll wake up feeling better already.


What’s keeping you from putting in the work?

Why do you keep looking for a quick fix?


The Difference Between Experts Who Earn Millions, and The Rest of Us (Hint: It’s Not About What You Know)

For a limited time, get access to over 100 hours of video training, plus The Web’s most active entrepreneurial community, for just $1.

Turning your skills and expertise into a way to support yourself is more doable than you might think.

There’s this big misconception about expertise, that you have to be one of the world’s top experts before you can earn a living from what you know.

But expertise isn’t an absolute. You might only be a 3, on a scale of 1 to 10, but there are plenty of 1’s and 2’s out there who would pay for your knowledge and experience, right now.

The key is to find a unique corner of your topic, to start building a tribe of people who trust you as their expert, not the expert, and to be resourceful about filling in the gaps by leveraging other experts when necessary.

This is why we built Fizzle, to teach you how to support yourself independently doing what you love on The Web. Fizzle is half training library, half supportive community, and it’s full of people like you who are building their thing online.

You’ll find big name courses in Fizzle, from well known and successful online business builders. We’re talking about courses like Book Yourself Solid (Michael Port), Start a Blog that Matters (Corbett Barr), and Connect With Anyone (Scott Dinsmore). And new courses are added every month.

And right now, you can get access to everything Fizzle offers, including the course library, the community, the live coaching sessions and the behind-the-scenes Founder Stories, all for just $1 for your first month.

Since applying more and more from Fizzle, I’ve started making as much (sometimes more/month) from my online business as I do from my full-time job with a fraction of the weekly hours. It’s exhilarating. I owe you guys so much.
