Some things will never change.

Sadly, Joe passed away one day after being informed that he had been granted American citizenship. He had sold potato peelers from 1993 to 2009.

Everyone wants to sell online but it seems nobody wants to do the hard work of selling offline anymore.

Kevin Rogers breaks down Joe’s street corner sales pitch and shows you how to use the same proven elements to sell more of your products online.

A while back, the leaders of a species have allowed a group of otherworldly beings — called "humans" — to take refuge on their planet. Tensions have recently risen due to the unsettling discovery that "humanity" apparently has a long track record of destroying every planet they colonize.

Some of America’s first immigrants (after the British) came from Germany, starting in the 1670s. Today, there are 49,840,035 Americans with German ancestry, according to the American Community Survey, far more than the current number of German speakers.

Although there were plenty of German immigrants present for the American Revolution, the US never considered adopting German as its official language, contrary to the persistent myth.

German is the most commonly spoken language at home other than English and Spanish in 9 U.S. states

Estimated number of speakers nationally: 905,326

States where it’s the most commonly spoken language at home other than English and Spanish: Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, South Carolina

„Man, that solo at the end!! Please extend that live for an extra 30 minutes or so!!“

…The acknowledgment of social co-production also dissolves the myth of the heroic individual businessman or woman as “self-made.” Individuals may do great things, but as Warren Buffett – who knows something about making money – has pointed out, none do it alone.“

„Once we acknowledge the social component of economic value, then discussion of financial return and social policy take a new turn. Taxation, for example, no longer is a matter of “redistributing” someone else’s income, or wealth, but rather of restoring a portion of it to the rightful owners…

…Wenn ich jetzt nicht aktiv werde, schaffe ich es nicht und dann klopft der schlimmste Albtraum an meine Tür: ein Day-Job mit seinem Kollegen Achim Festanstellung.

Hau rein!


Ich bin fortan im HYPER FOCUS! Warum? Damit ich erfolgreich meine Arbeit für Copywriting-Kunden verrichten kann. Kein öffentliches studiolist-Tagebuch mehr bis Ende Juni (vorerst) und vielleicht länger. Auch kein Marketingschnickschnak wie Podcasts. Das ist nur Ablenkung. Es geht ums Überleben und darum, 250 € in der Woche zu machen, damit ich in 6 Monaten 6k verdient habe…

…If I don’t start taking action now, I won’t make it and then my worst nightmare will knock on my door: day job with the baggage of being full-time.


SPECIAL - Day 137 RAW Update (from zero to profit = 2k EUR MRR) - English and Deutsch - of .

I entered HYPER FOCUS for copywriting client work success. No public studiolist diary until the end of June (for now) and maybe longer. The point is to make 250 euros per week so I eventually make 6k in 6 months…

This was day 137. Until May 31, 2019 I had been validating my 👷‍♂️ startup within 4 months while traveling and working (day job, voiceover). If there had been no market validation till June 1, 2019 the startup would have 🧟‍♂️ died - but it didn’t. So, now I’m in the phase of making it profitable = 2k of monthly recurring revenue is the aim.
