This month kicked off an entirely new era for IWT (more info below) and lots of cool things you won’t want to miss.
But first, very important: I threw a luau BBQ in NYC:
My Rich Life
I also rode in a helicopter for the first time. This was a really cool experience that gave me a totally new perspective of the city:
Speaking of flying, I saw this while I was at the airport and couldn’t resist sharing some travel tips (avoid this!):
Oh man. I used to subscribe to this service. You pay like $150/year and you get expedited through airport lines. The problem was, (1) it only worked at certain airports, and (2) some lady would literally escort you past the entire line of harried, disapproving people in line, then PUSH THE BAGS AWAY FROM THE FIRST PERSON IN LINE and gesture for me to cut in front of them. I would save 5 minutes but be dripping in sweat out of embarrassment. Angry people would mutter "Who the hell is that" (and not in a good way) and some poor dad lugging 3 screaming kids around had to wait for my ass to move. Anyway I dropped this service and got TSA Precheck. Avoid Clearme. Let me know if you want more travel tips.
But, of course, no matter how much I try to get away, the crazy emails NEVER stop rolling in (which I love btw):

Happening on the blog

Could you earn money online with the skills you ALREADY have? I bet you could, and here’s proof. Check out these wacky (yet successful) online businesses. You might be surprised when you see how many people will pay for the oddball skills and interests you already have.
One of my favorite RBT interviews yet. Jermaine started an online business with a $70 investment. That business — that began as a side hobby — eventually turned into a multi-million dollar company. Even if you just check out the trailer for the interview, you’ll walk away with some terrific insights on psychology, email marketing, automation, and systems. A must see.
I do read every email. Just like I’ve said 50,000 times. But for a lot of people, it’s unfathomable that somebody can actually read 1,000+ emails/day and still get work done. Here’s how I do it and you can, too.
Even the world’s best resume and cover letter won’t always get you the job. Here’s how you really win an interview and get the job every time.
IWT Mentions and Student Success
I loved this profile of my student, Natasa, who hoped to make $2,500/mo with her business…and is now making $55,000/month. Very cool.
Here’s an awesome story of a personal finance journalist who followed just ONE piece of our Save $1,000 in a Week challenge, and it showed her ALL the ways she was leaking money…without even knowing it.
My student, Julian W., a yoga instructor from Santa Monica, California, earned more than $3,000 after a few days of selling his product. Read more about how he used Zero to Launch to help yoga instructors ALL around the world with his online business.
My student, Danny M., was a freelance copywriter from Omaha, Nebraska. Since joining Zero to Launch, he’s generated $24,000+ in sales on a tiny site with just 2 blog posts. You should definitely check out his story — it’s amazing what he’s done.
We have even more exciting things headed your way soon — including all new material on starting a side-business, how to be more creative, and much, much more. Stay tuned!
