My favourite income report ever.
Record breaking numbers coming from a MONSTER launch of Zero Hour Work Days.
As usual, I will be discussing more than just business.
Yes, we will get to the numbers that you really want to see.
Before then, though, I want to share a piece of my story.
My hope is that maybe you can relate on some level with what I have experienced.
…and somehow apply what I have learned to your own life.
So here goes…
A handful of months ago I proposed to marry a girl that had been my life and travel partner for two years.
Everything on the surface looked good.
Business was flourishing, and we seemed to be a happy couple (on Facebook).
The reality was the engagement was my attempt to preserve the past. Once we returned home from our travels, things were not the same.
My months back in Canada were terrible.
Seriously, the worst four months of my life.
I tried hard to become connected to the community and salvage the relationship with my ex fiancé.
Unfortunately, the effort that I put into connection was not returned.
Because I usually look for the good in others, there were things I was pretending not to know…
The end result was that once back home, my ex:
- Cheated on me
- Evaded her responsibility to pay her travel debts ($16,000+)
- Deleted me on all platforms in order to avoid this repayment
Anybody that knows me understands that money is not my priority.
The $16,000 loss was not a burden for me.
What hurt was that someone who was my best friend for years could be so cruel.
The affair wasn’t an accident. It was tactically done to inflict emotional pain.
You may ask, “why would somebody do something like that?”
That is a question that I will never (to this day) be able to answer for you.
Although I do understand the money part…
What is the purpose of me telling you this?
Everybody struggles at one point in their life.
Even though earlier this year was challenging for me, I know there are many people that have gone through much worse hardship than me.
What is important is that you realize that struggle and obstacles are unavoidable, and it is the ONE thing that will make or break your capacity to be successful.
I’m not just talking about the business world.
Even every day life is affected by the emotional state you choose to live in.
…. And it is a choice!
My favourite speaker is a fascinating woman named Brene Brown.
One of her quotes that resonates with me is: “When you deny your story, the story owns you. When you own your story, you get to write the ending.”
My minor road bump a few months ago has taught me this:
- Focus on the positive
- Accept that hardships happen
- ALWAYS COME BACK STONGER
You now have a choice.
Do you let your challenges burden you from becoming great?
Or do you rise up, embrace the challenges, and write your own ending?
How’s My Story Going so Far??
I’m grateful that my ex cheated on me.
There’s the old cliche “when life hands you lemons”
Well, I grabbed those lemons and made some damn lemonade.
…I even added some tequila for a little kick!
I have experienced more in the past five months than the entirety of our relationship combined.
Even my business success has been fuelled by the fiasco.
Nassim Taleb wrote a book called “AntiFragile”
He explains in depth how a bad life event can either break you, or transform you into something greater.
I have never felt more unstoppable in life or business than I am right now.
This is me celebrating my $30k+ Zero Hour Work Days launch.
Few beers in and enjoying the sunset.
Every event and moment in my past has impacted who I am today…
Always come back stronger!!
Back to Business — The Traffic Stats
So without a doubt, the best month for traffic EVER.
The numbers across the board are all flourishing.
…A 38.25% INCREASE IN VIEWS…
What did I do to get these results?
The launch of Zero Hour Work Days clearly helped me achieve this.
I knew that my product launch was going to attract thousands of visitors.
Many of these welcomed guests had not seen my channel before.
For that reason, I made it very clear on my sales page that I have a YouTube channel. And it actually became a pretty obvious part of my overall presentation.
My intention was twofold.
1) To build authority with my guests
A lot easier to sell an information product, if people value what you know.
2) To cause indirect traffic to hit my YouTube channel.
I have no way of knowing whether this impacted my conversion rate, but I do know that my YouTube channel got a nice bump because of it.
Ever heard the expression “strike while the iron is hot?”
Because I was introducing a bunch of new people to my brand, I scratched together three of the best videos I’ve ever published.
The first one I created featured Zero Hour Work Days, and is what started the affiliate rush.
You can see it here:
Essentially, this video gave people an insight into what would be taught in Zero Hour Work Days.
Immediately after it broadcasted on YouTube, I generated over $2,000+ worth of sales.
ALMOST ALL of which came from this video.
I cannot thank enough my loyal audience that supported me in this product launch.
That burst of sales and traffic caused a stir of interest.
Fortunately, WarriorPlus noticed my splash in the pool and gave ZHWD the prestigious “Deal of the Day” award.
Getting that award is a great honour, but it also leads to a bunch more sales.
Which is how ZWHD ended up grossing over $32,000 in revenue (so far).
The next video I created was on my success with product launching:
TONS of people create info products every day.
… And it’s understandable.
The one’s that do well end up grossing BIG NUMBERS.
You know the saying that there’s no such thing as a “get rich quick” scheme.
Anybody that says that hasn’t launched a successful product.
I am definitely NOT saying that I am rich (yet), but there are many product creators that have made over a million from a single launch.
So this video is here to give people a little taste of how I did it.
In my coaching membership area I go through it in a lot more depth.
The final video this month was on video marketing:
This video was actually not that well received.
If you see it on YouTube, you’ll notice a good amount of dislikes.
I’m not sure why…. surely it can’t be that my content is bad. Haha.
My guess is that people don’t like the message.
In the video, I show a very realistic way to make good commissions.
But it does require a good amount of work + effort.
Still less than an hour, though… haha.
The method from the video was completed in less than 42 minutes, and generated over $700 in overall revenue.
Not bad for a Zero Hour Work Day!!

So I’m happy with that!!
Record month by a large margin.
Not only that, but my YouTube channel and blog have both exploded with new visitors.
I’m going to enjoy this month, and probably take a little time off.
Travelling with my friend from Canada.
Here’s us at Ko San Road:
We’ve been having a blast so far.
It wouldn’t be fair for me to put in too many hours.
I want to have fun with her.
And also it will be nice to take a break from the grind.
That means the amount of content will probably go down in November.
But I will still be around to help where I can.
Some of the Travel Pics:
Us chilling at our rooftop pool…
The staple “Ko San Road pic of McDonalds”
And a taste of Bali…
In case I forgot to mention…
I was in Bali for a month while Zero Hour Work Days launched.
Hope you liked this income report.
Catch up with you guys next month!!
