$274 In One Day

Not really in the mood for writing today.

And it’s not because I’m grumpy or anything it’s just that my hands are literally killing me.

They hurt whenever I type so I guess I finally hit that milestone in which you have used a keyboard for way too long.

Anyway… I’ll deal with that later.

This article is basically a recap of this week.

As always, I keep forgetting to mention a lot of things on video so I’m planning to use a sheet of paper for the next videos and give you the complete story instead of regretting this later just like right now.

$274 In One Day Video

I really can’t type anymore so I did this video for you instead! 

There ya go!

Conclusion

I don’t know where this is going to end, my hands have been hurting for several weeks already and it is just getting worse.

So I have basically three choices here, either start writing a lot less, switch the blog to a vlog and only make videos or start using something like Dragon Naturally Speaking and transcribe everything.

I will have to check this out later but in the meantime… thanks for being around.

The Las Vegas Project is still ON.

    Hello Sergio,
    Sorry to hear that about your hands my friend, get that taken care of as soon as you can.
    Congrats on the C.D. deal $200.00 and I have had ‘ mystery’ money land in my PayPal about 7 months ago. Then I discovered it was from a program that I had thought didn’t even exist anymore LOL. $54.00 and some change was the amount.
    You’ve heard the saying “good things happen to good people”… there ya go Buddy. Maybe you’ve just simply been blessed in return for the good things you do for people.
    Looking forward to hearing more from you and if you don’t mind I would like to place a link on my Blog to yours in my Other Really Blogs section.
    Wishing only the best to your continued success,
    David Caudill

      Hey David, great saying!

      A friend of mine said this on Facebook: ” I just assume it’s good karma coming back in monetary form.” so I think we pretty much agree that was maybe a reward, who knows!

      I won’t mind the link at all David, thanks a lot for coming here and sharing your kind comments, hope you have a great day my man! ;-)

    Hey Sergio,
    Nice result! I look forward to doing some of that in the future.
    Take care with those hands buddy, you’re gonna need ’em! Switching to video might be kinda cool, it’s something that I would like to do more of in the future and it’s something that I need to get better at!
    Keep on keepin’ on my friend

      Hey Rich,

      Well video was a big no-no for me in the past but I find it easier to transmit a message like this and the problem with my hands may force me to make the switch very soon.

      Thanks for stopping by and I’m sure you’ll have “mistery money” rolling in, in no time.

      Have a great weekend Rich! ;-)

    Hi Sergio

    Ah thats cute! A certificate!

    You have been so busy Sergio. You do need to take care with your hands. One of my friends had a similar thing – he was a pianist and he had to stop playing – very sad. BUT the reason was because he didn’t do anything about it.

    Take action. Give your hands a rest and yes start doing video instead. Perhaps get some of that software to convert it to text.
    All the best

      Hey Kay, well I left for an entire weekend about a month ago and that didn’t help at all, I think I need something like physical therapy (I hope not though).

      Thanks for stopping by Kay and I agree that the certificate was cute indeed. ;-)

        Hi Sergio
        Hope you had a rest this weekend.
        I think you should get physio.

        Does it affect your piano playing?

          Hello Kay, I did rest a little bit but I think I definitely need to see a doctor about it. :(

          My main instrument is electric guitar and I don’t know if it will affect my playing, I surely hope not so keeping my fingers crossed.

          Have a great start of week Kay and keep up the great work! ;-)

    Nice video!

    Every dollar counts, right? :) I hope you find the source of that extra 1k pesos.

    If you plan on getting more DVD burning tasks I suggest you build a burning “tower”. We have one at the agency and it has saved us countless hours of zombie work in the past, believe me!

    Congratulations on the new opportunity, whatever that may be… it sure sounds interesting! Even if that one deal doesn’t work out, as you said it isn’t set in stone yet, this means one thing: You’re definitely going in the right direction my friend, keep at it!

    Take care of your hands, maybe take a few days off of writing.

    Thanks again for your support and help!

    All the best,
    Rod

      Rod my man, every dollar counts indeed.

      Ooohhh a burning tower, didn’t think of that one, thanks!

      About this opportunity that I’m having right now, it’s so important to me that I’m willing to stop everything I’m doing to focus entirely on that.

      I’ll see what happens and if it does happen, you guys will be hearing about it here on the site (that is, if I’m allowed to speak about it of course).

      Take care and thank you for the tips and the nice wishes. I’ve never thought I would have a physical problem with my hands but apparently I don’t give them too much of a rest.

      PS. I just made an extra $300 by writing some real estate contracts. Not with what I had in mind but it is definitely happening lol enjoy your weekend Rod! ;-)

    Hey Sergio,

    Good job on making that money so far! Even though it’s not part of your original plan, at least your on your way, right! I have to try to figure out how to make money fast myself as I have bills to pay ;-)

    It’s too bad that your computers aren’t working for you, but at least you are going for it and not going back to the guy and saying you can’t do it :)

    Sounds exciting about this secret product launch. Hope it works out for you my friend!

    Have a fabulous day!
    Linda

      Hey Linda,

      Well opportunities are just everywhere, we just need to open our eyes and be aware of them.

      It is very difficult for me to give up. I think I’ve only given up once in my life (pursuing a professional musical career) and that took 14 years so burning those dvd’s is definitely not going to be the second time I give up.

      Actually I just finished burning the DVD’s and while it did take a whole day from me, I surely can’t complain for $200 a day.

      Thanks for being around Linda, I really appreciate it and hope you have an amazing weekend as well! ;-)

      Ps. That product launch is going to rock whether I participate on it or not!

      Hey Phyllis, I’m already testing different ways to give my hands some rest.

      And thank you for the nice wishes, I surely will continue somehow and great to connect on Google+!

      Take care and enjoy the remaining of the weekend Phyllis ;-)

    Hi Sergio,

    That certificate is so cute – maybe your girlfriend would be interested in doing a blog herself, or there is something you could do together – even if it was just put up a Squidoo or two? Sometimes it works to get family involved (I lucked out when my son decided to partner in this business).
    You’ve already gotten lots of good advice about taking care of your hands – hope they’re getting better!

      Hey Jackie,

      She’s definitely not into blogs or internet marketing. At least not for now.

      I’ve suggested her to start something and I would help her with everything but she’s just not into it so it just reminds me of that saying: “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink”.

      Thanks for stopping by and yeah, I may have to write a bit less I think, have a great day Jackie! ;-)
