My March 2014 Monthly Goals Report

43

my-march-2014-monthly-goals-reportEvery month, I write a detailed monthly report about the progress that I’m making towards the goals and resolutions that I publicly stated on my blog earlier in the year.  This is my March 2014 Monthly Goals Report, which goes over each goal that I set and the progress that I’ve made on them so far.

Since sharing my Monthly Goals Reports since January, I received such an amazing response from people on my blog.   People have been sharing with me how much I’ve inspired them or how helpful it’s been for them by me openly sharing my progress.  It’s my hope that you can take away something from this report that will help inspire you to achieve your own goals.

My Goals Breakdown

I’m now going to go into each goal that I committed to for 2014 in detail and share exactly where I’m at with it.  Also, be sure to check out the original 2014 goals and resolution video blog and my previous Monthly Goal Reports to compare my progress.

Health & Fitness

1. I will easily be 160 lbs at 6% body fat and compete in the WBFF on July 26, 2014.

stefan marchResult:  150 lbs at 7% body fat

Previous Month: 152 lbs at 8% body fat

I’m happy to say that I made a bigger leap in my progress during March towards getting down to 6% body fat.  My goal has been to continue leaning out and getting my abs more defined for my fitness competition in July.  I likely won’t be able to put on any muscle before the competition as I won’t have much time, but my plan is to get as lean as possible and then start putting on muscle after the competition while staying lean.

I did have a set back in March with my diet.  I ended up having a few days where I ate unhealthy while going out with friends.  As a result of consuming more carbs and calories, my weight ballooned up to around 153 lbs, as it was holding more water.  After an event like that, it often takes about a few days to a week of consistency to bring my weight back down.  I’m okay with these set backs here and there as I understand that they do happen.  Right now I’ve got some good momentum going and will continue on with what I’m doing for the next 3-4 months.

My diet has currently been around 2000 calories per day.  I track every meal and usually eat the same meals everyday.  I also have been lifting weights 6 days a week, while doing interval cardio training about 3-4 times per week.  I’ll be sure to do a video blog at some point with more on what I’ve been doing.

I’ve included some pictures below so you can see and compare my progress.

2. I will easily complete a 7-10 day cleanse using The Total Wellness Cleanse by December 31, 2014.

Result: No progress made yet

I haven’t focused on this goal yet and plan on doing the cleanse sometime during the end of the year.

Finances

3. I will easily be making $30,000/month consistently by December 31, 2014.

Result: $51,605.66

Previous Month: $42,469.01

I just destroyed my previous record of monthly earnings and earned $51,605.66 during March through all of my online income streams.  It’s pretty remarkable how every month it’s been going up and up and I’m still personally in disbelief about the progress I’ve been making so rapidly.  One of the biggest reasons for the big increase was the launch of my new coaching program, which ended up earning me some significant money.  I’ve had a lot of people from all over the world want to work with me and I decided to take on many more clients this year.  Coaching is definitely not a passive income stream by any means, but it’s rewarding and enjoyable.  I love working with people on a 1-on-1 basis and I’ve found it to be the easiest way to help people get faster results than anything else out there.

Below, I break down the different sources of my online income so that you can see where it’s coming from.  I don’t share specifics about particular websites due to the protection of certain creative endeavours I’m involved in.

Clickbank: $22,292.88

My Clickbank earnings include my Kindle Money Mastery course, 6 other Clickbank products that I sell (which I keep private) and affiliate earnings.  My Kindle Money Mastery course has been growing every month and I’ve been taking a lot of action to making it one of the best courses out there for helping people make money online.  I’m very proud of the progress I’ve been making with it.  I also continue to make passive income from several products that I sell on Clickbank that I started 3-4 years ago that continue to make me money on autopilot.  And finally, a large portion of the income is also from affiliate earnings that I get from this blog and other websites that I have also.

During February of 2014, I made $17,550.17 on Clickbank.  So I saw a huge increase during March, primarily in sales for my Kindle Money Mastery course as I’ve been working on ways to grow it and get it out there to help more people.

Kindle Publishing: $8,223.12

My Kindle publishing earnings include all the royalties that were deposited into my bank account for March from all 100+ Kindle e-books that I sell on Amazon.  During January, I made $8,502.56 from Kindle, so my income dropped a bit.  I’m not too worried about this, as earnings always tend to fluctuate and go up and down.  I currently have so many books published and I’m always tweaking things and optimizing things with my books.  I also have been running a lot of free promotions on my books the last few months to boost the rankings, and so I’ve gone a few weeks without sales because of this.  Overall, this will help my book sales long-term.

ShareASale$118.32

This is more affiliate commissions that I earned from promoting some products on my blog.  Last month I made $70.27, so my income here decreased.

Commission Junction: $82.21

This is more affiliate commissions that I earned from my blog.  Last month I made $105.20 from Commission Junction.

Coaching: $15,102.47

During March, I ended up taking on some more coaching clients with the launch of my new coaching program and was able to make $15,102.47, which is a lot more than what I made during any other month.  During March, I made $8220.41 from coaching after I got back from Bali and decided to get back into coaching a few clients that I took a break from during January.  I also think that since I’ve been being more transparent and sharing my goals, more people have been inspired and been wanting to work with me, which has been great.

Other: $4,836.66

This is all a bunch of other income that wasn’t worthwhile separating into new sections, but it includes payments from a few affiliate promotions that I did, as well as earnings from Udemy and Fiverr.

Rental Income: $950

This income isn’t internet related, but I still included it since I wanted to add up my gross income for February.  I have an investment property that I rent out every month – I don’t make any passive income from it, it just covers my mortgage.

Overall, this has been the best financial month of my life!  The crazy thing is, my goal is $30,000 per month consistently and I definitely exceeded that.  Now I just want to focus on sustaining this income of over $30,000 per month for the entire year.  However, with the launch of new projects that I’m focusing on this year, I could see my income consistently hit over $50,000 a month, which is extremely exciting!

4. I will easily have saved at least $100,000 by December 31, 2014.’

Result: Over $60,000

I was able to save over $20,000 during March that is directly in my company savings account.  This doesn’t include a investments that I made during March, I’m only tracking money that I’m putting into my savings and keeping away.  I’m happy I was able to save so much in March, considering I’ve also spent a lot of money to buy a new car and a few other high ticket items in my life.  I will easily achieve this goal by December 31st at the pace I’m moving at!

Business

5. I will easily have published at least 100 videos blogs on Project Life Mastery by December 31, 2014.

Result: 25 video blogs

Previous Month: 17 video blogs

During March I published 8 video blogs  on ProjectLifeMastery.com, with the total for this year being 25.  Here they are below:

I’ve been consistently doing about 8 video blogs per month right now, which I’m happy with.  I know during summer time I’ll probably crank it up for a month or two, once I get some big projects out of the way.  I started doing a video blog series on how I make money online, which has been fun and very time-consuming.  I really put a lot into these video blogs and want to make sure they’re really high quality.

6. I will easily launch my new money-making course by May 1, 2014.

Result: No progress made yet

Haven’t had a chance to focus on this too much right now.  Currently don’t want to switch gears too much from Kindle, as I’m getting a lot of momentum in that space.  Will likely begin to focus on this more in a few months.

7. I will easily launch my new Kindle service by February 1, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

I ended up achieving this goal during February and launched my Done-For-You Kindle Ready Book Packages, which sold out in one hour!  I made 10 packages available that each consisted of a professionally written Kindle book consisting of over 5,000 words in a profitable niche, a quality e-cover with stock photos, as well as a description for the book.  These sold for $247 each.  I was absolutely blown away by how fast it sold out, as I didn’t even launch it to my entire e-mail list – only my customers.  Since there’s such a demand for this, I’m planning on launching this again sometime in the next month or two, but will likely charge more for it as it required more of my time than I would have liked.

8. I will easily launch my own Kindle software by December 31, 2014.

Result: In progress

I’m super excited about this project as I have a team of software developers and designers working on it.  This is my first software that I’m developing and there’s been a bit of a learning curve with it.  I’m investing a lot of time and money into this, but I know it will pay off in the long-run and help a lot of people (while solving my problems too).  Things couldn’t be moving along better here – hoping to get this launched in the coming months.

9. I will easily launch my new coaching program by March 1, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

Launching my new coaching program was a big achievement for me during March.  I decided that I’d take on more clients this coming year and put together some coaching packages that would allow me to help people make money online.  While my rates for working with me 1-on-1 are fairly expensive as my time is limited, I decided to also put together a Group Coaching Mastermind for those that are unable to afford to work with me 1-on-1.  This has allowed me to form a mastermind group and work with people in a group setting, which so far has been excellent.  If you want to find out about my new coaching program, click here.

10. I will easily complete Autoresponder Madness and implement what I learned into my business by March 1, 2014.

Result: Delayed, in progress

This project has been delayed much longer than I expected, as I realized that I need to finish some other projects that are more urgent and are required for me to complete this course.  I’ll definitely be getting around to this goal later, as it’s still a high priority for me and it’s actually one of my favourite online marketing courses ever.

11. I will easily launch the new design for Project Life Mastery by December 31, 2014.

Result: In progress

The new design for PLM is still in progress and coming along nicely.  I’m just finishing the final details on it and wanting to make sure everything is the way that I want it before I launch it.  I’m hoping to launch this sometime in the next month or two.

12. I will easily write and launch a new Kindle e-book by December 31, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

Yes!  Another goal achieved for this year already.  I wrote, launched and released my latest book called Kindle Marketing Secrets – 33 Ways To Promote Your Kindle Book And Get More Sales.  So far, I’ve received an awesome response from it and people have been loving it.  It’s also selling really well and is something that will continue to make me passive income for years to come, as well as promote my Kindle Money Mastery course.

Lifestyle

13. I will easily move into the Sheraton Wall Centre penthouse on the 48th floor in downtown Vancouver by February 1, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

I moved into the penthouse at the Sheraton Wall Centre on the 48th floor overlooking beautiful Vancouver on February 1st.  It’s a $1.7 million dollar penthouse and it’s still surreal.  Just a few years ago I was broke and struggling, living in my friends living room… and now I’m living in a penthouse!  Very awesome.  🙂  I’ve now furnished the place (which was a lot of work), and now I’m still furnishing it with smaller items.  I’ll have to do a video blog and give a tour of the place once everything is set up.

14. I will easily own and be driving a Corvette ZR1 by December 31, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

stefan corvette stingray

This was by far the biggest goal that I achieved during March.  Soon after doing my February Monthly Goals Report, I started researching the Corvette Stingray and just wanted to see what was available in Vancouver.  I soon learned that there was only a small limited supply of these cars made available in Canada, as each dealership is only given one and they recently arrived here.  Every place that I contacted no longer had it available, except for one.  I ended up buying the next day the only 2014 Corvette Stingray that was left in British Columbia.  Was it meant to be?  I think so!

Very excited to have achieved this goal.   It was much earlier than I expected, but I was able to take decisive action on it and I don’t regret it one bit.  I’ve included a picture of me below with it. 🙂

15. I will easily spend a weekend in Las Vegas by August 31, 2014.

Result: No progress made yet.

Haven’t focused on this yet.

16. I will easily spend 2.5 weeks in Bali, Indonesia by February 1, 2014.

stefan baliResult: Goal Achieved in January!

I spent most of January in Bali, Indonesia and had a blast.  I travelled with my friend Mike and I recorded a lot of videos while there.  It’s absolutely beautiful there and I highly recommend to go if you get a chance!

17. I will easily travel to San Diego for the Traffic and Conversion Summit by February 1, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved in January!

frank kern traffic and conversion summitAfter Bali, I ended up going to Los Angeles and then to San Diego for the Traffic and Conversion Summit.  It was an amazing event – over 2,000 people attended.  I was able to hangout with some friends from a mastermind group I’m apart of and meet some internet marketers that are making millions online.  It was very inspirational and now I’ve got a lot to apply to my businesses for 2014 that will take things to a whole new level.  I did a video blog on what I learned from the event here.

18. I will easily take a 1-week vacation and travel somewhere by December 31, 2014.

Result: No progress made yet

Haven’t been thinking too much about another vacation right now, as I just want to get back into a routine in Vancouver.  Will be a few months before I look to travel again.

Social & Relationship

19. I will easily go out and socialize and have fun at least 3 times per week by December 31, 2014.

Result: Been going out 2-3 times per week

I’ve been having an awesome balance right now in my life.  Now that the weather is slowly starting to get better in Vancouver, I’ve been enjoying my weekends more.  Been going out with friends, meeting new people, and having some great get-togethers.  I plan on maintaining this balance all throughout summer and perhaps even spend more of summer having fun.

20. I will easily have a fun get together and party once a month at my penthouse by December 31, 2014.

Result: Been having a get together/party once a month

During March, I had a group of friends over to watch the UFC fight.  Was fun and it’s always great to have people over.

Habits & Personal Development

21. I will easily meditate 30 days in a row for 20 minutes at a time by December 31, 2014.

Result: In progress

I’ve started meditating more and ended up going 30 days of doing meditation for at least 5 minutes.  Right now, one of the biggest challenges I’ve been having with meditation is that I haven’t been motivated to do it enough, simply because I don’t have a big enough WHY for it.  In order for me to successfully achieve this goal, I really need to think more about WHY I actually want to do this and the benefits it will bring to my life.

22. I will easily go 30 days without biting my nails by December 31, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved in January!

This goal was very easy for me to achieve once I committed myself to it.  I was biting my nails for so long out of habit and once I just decided to be conscious of it and focus on changing it, it was fairly easy.  I had a few times where my fingers would come up to my mouth, but I’d quickly stop myself.

23. I will easily go through Tony Robbins Personal Power II by February 1, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved in January!

I just finished completing this program for the 3rd or 4th time now.  My mastermind group wanted to go through it together as a group, which I agreed to.  I find that every time I go through programs again and again, I continue to get more out of it.  This is a powerful program and it helped me with many of my goals also.

24. I will easily read at least 12 books by December 31, 2014.

Result: Read 3 books

During March, I read two books.  I read the book My Philosophy For Successful Living by Jim Rohn and a book called How I Built A $175,000 Per Month Consulting Business In 90 Days by Frank Kern.  Both great books and enjoyable reads.  I decided to take a break from reading about taxes and instead read topics that I find more enjoyable to get myself back into the habit of reading again.

25. I will easily respond to friends and family members within 24 hours for 30 days straight by December 31, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved in January!

I achieved this goal in January and did a great job with it, but I feel that I need to focus on it a bit more again.  Since being back in Vancouver, I’ve been having a lot of people wanting to hangout with me or talk to me, which has been very overwhelming.  On top of it, I continue to receive hundreds of e-mails and messages everyday through my blog and Facebook which I’d like to minimize.  I’ve found that the more successful I’ve become, the MORE people want to hangout with me and be around me.  High quality problem, I know… My plan is to create some new systems to better communicate with others and have my support team handle as much as they can as well.

26. I will easily perform 1 act of contribution every month (volunteer, feeding families, donating to charities) by December 31, 2014.

Result: In progress

During March, one of the best things that I did was interacted with homeless people in my area and gave money to those in need.  It was both fun and very fulfilling to be able to spend time talking to them and reward the ones that are actually out there trying to improve themselves and finding ways to add value to society.

Final Lessons Learned In March

What can I say… I’m very pleased and happy about March!  I not only had a record-breaking month financially, but also have been making some great progress in all of the other areas of my life.  Tony Robbins says that progress equals happiness, and it’s definitely true.  I’m not only excited about the specific results I’ve been achieving, but more so who I’m becoming in the process.  I’ve been becoming a more disciplined, confident and high value human being.  I’m becoming the person that I’ve always wanted to be.  It’s fantastic!

One of the biggest challenges I’ve been facing has been rushing to do too much at once.  I have quite a few goals and projects on the go and they almost always inevitably get delayed.  There’s always things that come up and put a wrench in your plans.  I have so many things that I expected to have finished by now, but things have come up that have prevented things from being complete.  Part of it is that I’m always taking on a bit more than what I can handle right now and I need to look into leveraging myself even more.  I need to look into perhaps getting a few team members on board that can help me scale up at the pace that I want.

One awesome way I found to leverage myself was launching my Mastermind Group Coaching, which has given me the ability to work with a number of people in a group setting.  This has been beneficial to me, as I’m able to take on more clients without spending too much more time.  It’s much cheaper for people to work with me this way as well, rather than hiring me for my 1-on-1 time.

With regards to fitness, I learned the importance of tracking every meal exactly.  At times I was just roughly estimating the calories of my foods, instead of taking out the measuring cups and being exact.  Whenever you’re exact, it’s a huge eye opener.  Once I made this shift, I was able to break past a plateau and start making progress again with losing fat.  I’m almost where I want to be now, which is great, but the challenges have been more mental than physical.  I’ve been having to make some more sacrifices with my eating and raise my standards in this area, which wasn’t easy, but will be worth it.  I just overall learned that I need to play at a higher level here and continuously evolve with my eating and training if I want to get to where I want to be.  It’s not supposed to be easy – if it was, everyone would have an incredible body.  I’ve learned to accept this and take action regardless.

These are some of the biggest lessons that I stand out for me during March.  Overall, I enjoyed putting this Monthly Goals Report together and I look forward to doing one again for March.  I’ve found that this public commitment has been pushing me to stay motivated and accountable as well, which is helping me to get more done also.  Thanks for reading!

    boom!!! Motivating! I wish you Stefan big big big nice goals to achieve. More than car+house. I know you plan something extraordinary )))

  • Sam Clitheroe

    I always love reading these!

    Total side-question: do you and Jordan Gray ever hangout?

    I actually live in Bellingham, WA and am going to start driving up to Vancouver, BC once I get my nexus. I am doing so to work on my social skills, talking to women, and creating new connections.

    I know you and Jordan both have great knowledge in those areas, so it would be awesome to hangout with you guys in Vancouver sometime. =]

    Sam

    • Jordan Gray

      Yes, we do. Stefan and I have known each other for years and he’s a solid dude 🙂

    • Hey Sam, we sure do! Awesome, let us know when you come up! And Jordan is a great guy too 🙂

  • Warren

    Whoa! You’re crushing it Stefan! Well done. You’ve definitely grown leaps and bounds considering your site just started two years ago. Very encouraging work and keep it up!

    Keep inspiring,
    Warren

    • Thanks Warren! It’s been snowballing lately, but to be honest there’s been a lot of work done before those 2 years to develop myself into who I am today. Lots of failures and lessons learned for years before with online marketing, which has prepared me for the success I’m enjoying now.

      • Warren

        That’s what’s up Stefan! My site is about 5 months old and I have A LOT more to do for it to be successful. But personally, I much rather put forth all the effort first and reap the benefits later. I feel more accomplished that way — just like you! Your site is awesome and very helpful. Keep it up. Lot’s of people benefit from your site.

        Keep inspiring,
        Warren

  • James Adams

    If you’ve got a $1.7 million place, corvet stingray and your making upwards of over $51k your making more than Pat Flynn and that when I know your lying. If you were making 51k a month then why all the fiverr gigs I have found? If you were making that amount of money you wouldn’t need to waste time doing fiverr gigs. Also it was very good that you cut off the number plate off the car in one of the pictures of it. I find it really hard to believe your making that much and the fiverr gigs say it all really. I think you are just saying all this to get more subscribers.

    • Daniel Mulchansingh

      You are hilarious, you know that? Stefan is one of the most transparent marketers out there and if you did your research properly you would realise that he is indeed earning as much as he says he is (mind you, I think the $51K is net revenue, not necessarily profit). Look at his product on ClickBank, it has a fairly high gravity score (meaning a lot of it is being sold), most likely through affiliates and promotions on his email list.

      What amuses me about your reaction though is that your basis for saying this is that you find it hard to believe and because he also has fiverr gigs. You DO realise that some gigs can easily be outsourced right? Or that maybe it’s just something he does for fun?

      Furthermore, contrary to the popular belief that big numbers motivate people, that’s often not true when building a long-term relationship with a list of subscribers. Lying about $51K is a horrible marketing tactic as it’s not a sustainable model; if someone can prove he is lying, he loses ALL his credibility with his subscribers and therefore his income.

      Stefan practises what he teaches and he is a genuine guy. Instead of yammering about how he’s lying (which is untrue, I challenge you to find real evidence to support your claim), why not actually just follow the helpful posts he has shared on his blog? Look around you, his blog posts are packed with value and quality information.

      Broke people like to think that everyone who is earning a great income are scammers, thieves or liars. What doesn’t occur to them is that successful people develop a following of those who WANT to do business with them because they so relatable and helpful.

      C’mon James, you’re BETTER than that! You’re better than some guy who lurks around on other people’s blogs, bad-mouthing them and calling them liars when they have no basis of proof!

      You can learn so much from Stefan, you and I both aren’t making a full-time income online, I’m sure. So you can either whine about how others are lying or you can actually learn from successful people!

      I don’t think you’re a bad guy at all, I think you’re just trying to warn people because you don’t want anyone to be duped. But here’s the kicker though; Stefan is NOT a liar or false marketer. He could have EASILY said that he earns most of his money from Kindle Publishing, and used that to promote his Kindle product! Instead, he shows everyone exactly where his money is being made and he does not hide that he makes most of his money from other activities as well as Kndle publishing.

      So please, before you go blaring things that have no basis or evidence, take a step back and actually see what Stefan is about. You can learn a lot from him. I wish you all the best! 🙂

      • Thanks Daniel for defending me. I really appreciate it. There’s always people that will be skeptical in the online world and not much that can be done. It could be jealously. Some people are afraid and don’t want to get their hopes up or believe in something, it’s much rather for them to shoot others down. Whereas others get inspired by things and it motivates them to achieve something similar. I personally am indifferent to whether or not people believe me, I just will continue to share openly and honestly and let others decide for themselves. 🙂

        P.S. I did respond to him and attached some undeniable proof.

        • James Adams

          Stefan I’m in no way jealous of you as I am set for life financially even if I wasn’t I would never be jealous of you. I think your a sincere guy and come across well but a lot of your posts you quote tony robbins and copy a lot of his work and claim it as your own so your stuff is not original and never has been. It’s original in the sense that you have put your own spin on it though. A person who makes that amount of money a month from online businesses would be generating far more than a handful of comments on here. As I say I do think your a nice guy and I apologise for calling you a liar which was a bit harsh but I don’t think your making upwards of 50k each month. Wouldn’t mind seeing some pictures of you out and about in your stingray that might convince me a bit better.

          • With this blog, I simply share everything that has worked for me and what I’ve learned in my life, and that includes from Tony Robbins and many other mentors and role models. I give tons of credit to him for changing my life! And I don’t make all of my income from my blog, I have a Kindle course, Kindle e-books under different pen names, and other products that I sell that make me money without people even knowing about my blog. So how can you make those assumptions without even knowing what my other businesses and online income streams are? Anyways, I attached more pictures, but I’m not interested in getting into a big debate over this and feeding this any further. If you don’t believe me, then I’m not sure why you’re even following my videos or blog posts anyways… perhaps what I have to offer here isn’t for you and you should look elsewhere.

          • You have no idea what you are talking about and your presumptions are way off. I’ve met people who make way more than he is a month online (and know for a fact cause I’ve worked for a few of them) who you would never guess from the appearance of their websites. Many people don’t tell people how they make their money online or how much they are profiting and go to extreme lengths to not let people find out exactly how they are doing it or what kind of money is it for them. You should be thanking Stefan for sharing what is working for him!

    • Hey James, I think the $1.7 penthouse and Corvette Stingray would be proof enough that I’m making that kind of money… but if you want further proof, here’s two screen shots I quickly took. I shouldn’t have to do this, but you’re questioning my credibility and I’m happy to back it up. First is from one of my Clickbank accounts that has over $13k in sales in the last 4 weeks. The other is from my PayPal account that has over $24k in sales for March (affiliate earnings, coaching, some other ventures I’m involved in).

      Listen, I have no reason to lie or try to deceive anyone. That’s not who I am – I pride myself in marketing with integrity and genuinely wanting to add value to people. I understand some point might be skeptical and not believe me, and that’s fine – there’s really nothing more I can do to try to convince you. I’ve always just tried to be as transparent as possible with my goals, right from the beginning. You can take a look and see the goals that I set back in 2012. You can see the apartment and how I lived then. You can see my fitness progress. You can’t fake this stuff!

      Finally, the Fiverr gigs you’re referring to aren’t anything that I require any time with. I have some Fiverr gigs that for $5 I will show you how to rank your Kindle book or how to format your Kindle book, etc… which are just selling parts of my course. I don’t make much from the Fiverr gigs themself, but they sell my Kindle Money Mastery course which makes me good money. I don’t have to sit there and do anything, I just have my VA give people access to sign up for that part of my course and it takes about 2 seconds to deliver each time. This is called using Fiverr for lead gen, it’s a good way to make money btw. 🙂

      I get your apprehension (and I always maintain that it’s important to be skeptical about internet marketers and their claims) but Stefan is one of the good guys. He is the most transparent person that I’ve ever come across in the somewhat unscrupulous IM community. If his car, luxury apartment, and massive television aren’t enough proof for you, then go and watch the video evidence of his Kindle earnings. Most importantly, he respects his followers, and is loyal to them. He’s not going to sell you down the river for a quick buck.

      Consider yourself lucky that you have stumbled across one of the honest marketers. Learn from him.

        He probably rents the appartment I know it’s not worth 1.7 million. As for the car I need to see some pictures of him driving it out and about as the only pictures are in the showroom and a parking lot. I have every right to doubt his credibility here I’m not being mean it’s just things are skeptical here. I think he is a nice guy and wants to help people which is great but I struggle to believe he’s making that much each month after month. Maybe I’m wrong maybe I’m right but I’m entitled to my opinion kids.

        • James, I appreciate some healthy skepticism, but you out-right called me a liar and you’re jumping to assumptions which are unfair without even knowing me. I invite you to friend me on Facebook if you want to see more of my lifestyle and photos and proof. Here, I will attach a pic I took today of my car in my parkade and a view from my bedroom that I put up on my Facebook recently. And if you STILL don’t believe me, then add me to Facebook, ask all of my friends, people in my mastermind group, people that have been to my apartment, etc… and that will surely give you more proof.

          Now, what I’d like to invite you to do is take a look at yourself and question why you felt the need to attempt to prove someone wrong and be so negative towards them? I think there’s a deep-rooted cause of this and if you discover where this skepticism and negativity is coming from, I think it will be a huge break through for you and really take you to the next level in your life. Good luck.

          • James Adams

            Hi Stefan, I did call you a liar and I apologised as I felt it was a bit harsh. You don’t need to show me the pictures as I believe that I just doubted it being worth nearly $2 million dollars. I am still not sure about the amounts of money your making but don’t worry too much about it as you don’t know me.

            I will continue to follow you as I like your site. All the best.

          • Thanks James, I appreciate your apology and respect that. I will continue to do my best to be as honest and transparent as possible here to help people.

  • This is awesome I’m blown away great progress my friend !!! hard work pays off

  • Kayvee

    Im happy for your success 🙂
    I have a question…feel free to not answer 🙂
    Can you tell us the exact number of books you have on kindle?
    I know you say 100+
    Buy im so curious to know the exact number 😀

    • I’m not sure of the exact number, but last I checked was around 150.

      • Kayvee

        Thanks for sharing man. It must be a pain trying to remember to utilise those 5 free promotion days every 3 months for all 150 titles

        • Not at all, I have a VA that does them every 90 days for all my books or does Kindle Countdown Deals.

  • Harpreet Brar

    Awesome work Stefan. You are going on my mentor list. Keep pushing it, you are great inspiration to all of us. 🙂

  • Dia

    Hey Stefan,

    Great results, keep up the good work! Can you tell us more about the click bank income and the “other” income in more details in future posts and how we can do the same? Any information on how we can apply this info to generate money would be good so we can have more than one source of income. Thanks

  • Kaye

    Wow, I am so glad I stumbled upon your youtube vid. All I was thinking was, how did he know about alkaline water and how much we had in common with regard to our beliefs. Eating healthy, meditation, Tony Robbins…all great stuff and then some! You are truly an inspiration to me and have given me an extra set of hope during this time when my life is in total turmoil, (divorce, child custody battle, house upside down and more) so THANK YOU! Keep up the great work. I just know there are even bigger things in store for you! I will be following you so please keep up the updates! All the Best, ~Kaye

    • Thanks Kaye, I guess we must be kindred spirits then 🙂 Glad I could be a positive influence in your life, keep up consuming the positivity and things will turn around for you!

  • Stefan,

    Your post is really inspiring. One of my goals this year is to publish a book on kindle; and to offer a course on my website. Even from 14 months ago, when I first saw your vid’s, you sure have come a long way. I just may very well have to purchase one of your products to go to the next level.

    Thanks for the Inspiriation,

    Robb

    • Hey Robb, thanks for following me for so long and seeing the changes I’ve made! It’s my goal to help people with Kindle publishing and online marketing, so if you’re a fan of my blog, you’ll definitely love my products too! Good luck!

  • Life Style

    HELLO, I AM RE-POSTING THIS QUESTION FROM 2 WEEKS AGO. MAYBE YOU MISSED IT BUT CAN YOU TAKE A MINUTE TO ANSWER.

    Hi Stefan!

    I bought your Kindle Money Mastery and its great
    information! I’m stumped on just one part. This may sound silly
    but…how many words constitutes one page? Your videos suggest about
    3500 to 5000 words. How many pages of an e-book does that generally
    make? Just wondering since this is my 1st time and I want to do it
    correctly. Thanks!

    • Sorry, not sure how I missed it, I get a lot of messages! I’ve found a 5000 word book equates to around 20-25 pages on Kindle, since they convert things a certain way, but it also depends on the formatting of your book as well, so it varies.

      • Life Style

        Ok, thanks for the reply!

  • Fitness Progress Looks Good! Keep Working Hard Stefan!!!

  • Stefan, I’ve got a great book recommendation that will help you figure out why you want to meditate. It’s called ‘Meditation Made Easy’ by Lorin Roche, Ph.D. I had the same struggles as you and it helped me tremendously…

  • AnnetteSays

    Good day Stefan, just wanted to let you know that after watching a couple of your videos, and reading your March Goals post, I just purchased Life Mastery,
    Kindle Marketing Secrets, and Kindle Money Mastery. I purchased them for 3 reasons; #1 obviously for the value and information I believe they will provide, #2, moreso as a “Thank You” for all the value and information you’ve provided already absolutely free via your site and YouTube, and #3 because of the items you listed on your “goals report” that are NOT income related, ie your social, relationship, lifestyle goals etc.

    That’s why I want to earn passive income; to buy time to be able to life a dream lifestyle and help others. I’ve read income/goal reports from many of the big-time gurus, but yours spoke the the purpose and things I’m trying to achieve.

    So thanks again, you are greatly appreciated!
    Annette

    • Thanks Annette for the support! So happy to hear that you’ve enjoyed my content and I hope I can help you with your goals. I will continue to be as transparent as possible and share openly and honestly. Wishing you the best success!

  • I’ve really been inspired by your monthly goals report. I am about to model you if you don’t mind – will of course credit you. I wrote about my goals at the beginning of April after discovering your website and I am about to write a blog post with an update. Just wanted to share that with you. Keep going with yours and of course I’ll be back to check out how you’re getting on.
