The internet is huge and doesn’t have a limited capacity. There is still time for you to make a successful online business but you must start today. Who cares how saturated your niche market is? If you write great content that helps people, add in your own personal style and quit collecting underpants, you will make something your mother will be proud of.
Steve Kamb, writer, nerd and fitness lover joins Daniel to talk about doing things today to make you feel alive, how mindset is the key to making your online business work, and if you really want to get disciplined – set up a charity contribution to the Westboro Baptist Church. Steve’s new book, Level Up Your Life, uses a video game’s rewards-based system and tactics to get you addicted to being the best you can be at whatever you choose to do.

In our world of abundance people need to step up and take action. The key is not to do something when you are feeling motivated but to do something when you are not motivated to do it. It is disrespectful to the people around you to not do absolutely everything you possibly can to contribute to society and be the best you can be. You will find accountability and support from people who believe in you. The information you spew will always be less important than the presentation you give. That is what will set your unique voice apart from everyone else.
