I’m in Amsterdam, Netherlands, working on these things:

December 2019

  • working on the Etsy store I just launched and creating printables for it

October 2019

  • interviewing successful bloggers and entrepreneurs (you can find all interviews here)
  • getting more traffic from Pinterest to my blog (you can see my latest Pinterest strategy here)
  • growing my email list by creating new freebies (one example is this guide where I explain the strategies I used to reach 100K monthly page views on my blog)

November 2018

June 2018

December 2017

  • just registered my business here in the Netherlands and will be doing a few things differently from January on;
  • Let’s Reach Success will be the official name of a company in 2018;
  • got my dutch accountant now and am preparing invoices for regular clients and learning how to track finances in the new year so that it’s easy for him to handle it;
  • planning my YouTube strategy (I don’t feel comfortable with making videos yet, but it’s a big part of every platform and brand and I need to turn it into a regular part of my work routine);
  • posting in the new News category;
  • publishing a ton of guest posts (the requirements are stricter now due to the big number of requires I receive);
  • almost making a living with sponsored posts;
  • I’m finally learning Dutch;
  • writing a monthly report where I share what I’ve been up to and also my income. Here’s the one for November, for example;
  • syndicating content on Medium and LinkedIn weekly to share it with a bigger audience;
  • constantly backing up and monitoring the website so that things are under control. The Alexa rank is getting better;
  • reviewing my work and finances every 10 days (3 times a month) and planning what to get done over the next 10 days.

July 2017

  • recovering financially after traveling and having more expenses due to living in Amsterdam and having a higher standard of life;
  • learning to manage my finances better;
  • enjoying life in Amsterdam and feeling at home here;
  • working out 5-6 times a week (gym and jogging);
  • affiliate marketing;
  • on-boarding members for LRS Premium (Update: Removed the membership area. All content on LRS is free again.)
  • researching and taking some action to officially move my online business in the Netherlands;
  • creating strategic and optimized content for a new niche site I’m experimenting with;
  • writing actionable content for members weekly.

November 2016

  • looking for a permanent place to stay in Amsterdam (moving there in 2 weeks);
  • preparation for a mini-retirement in Thailand in February, 2017;
  • publishing tons of guest posts on Let’s Reach Success (almost half of which are sponsored);
  • a new strategy for the podcast where I do a lot more research for most episodes and share life lessons, habits and mindsets of successful entrepreneurs and/or big companies;
  • writing books and articles for clients;
  • building a following on Instagram @letsreachsuccess;
  • constantly making optimizations to the blog in terms of SEO and UE to make the reading experience better and let the visitor focus on content only;
  • managing my finances better;
  • covering new subcategories on the blog like Money, Health and Travel;
  • reading about investing and startups to engage my mind and think of new ideas for my businesses;
  • officially being able to call myself a lifestyle designer and location independent;
  • cutting out bread from my menu again (it’s just too big of a weakness).

February 2016

  • writing;
  • working on this blog all the time;
  • publishing a new book almost every month (latest one is on breaking bad habits);
  • freelance writing;
  • working on my 5-month plan to double my income;
  • releasing an episode of The Let’s Reach Success Podcast every Thursday;
  • creating audiobooks;
  • learning more about book marketing and trying new things;
  • building better habits (and sharing what I learn with my readers);
  • going to the gym 3-5 times a week;
  • planning and arranging stuff for my next two vacations (a trip around Europe with friends at the beginning of April during which it will be hard to do much work, and a month or two in the Netherlands this summer as the first step of my location independent journey).

These are my priorities and I’m ruthless with them. This means that I don’t let people talk me out of these, I make time for them daily (usually dedicate my most productive time of each day to them) and make sure that no distractions get in the way.
