How I Became Financially Independent: Full $10k/Month Roadmap

Hey man

Break out the champagne…

Last month was my first $10k month.

This is with a YouTube channel with under 20k subscribers.

(don’t break out the champagne I hate it)

By building this channel, I’ve essentially been able to go from being a socially anxious man-child living at my dad’s house to travelling around as a digital nomad without a boss.

Does life still suck sometimes? Yes.

Do I occasionally have a neurotic takeover from a weird part of my brain that causes me to eat two whole pizzas? Absolutely.

But at least I don’t have a boss so I’m free to eat those pizza’s in my underwear if I want to (enjoy the mental image).

And in this email, I’m breaking down how I did it.

If you’re a dude who’s stuck in a rut right now and you can’t see a way out … read this.

Back in 2016, I started publishing videos on YouTube.

I loved meditation, spirituality and self-development.

So I started creating videos.

They were NOT good videos.

But to my surprise…

One video popped off and got 100k views.

Another video popped off and got 150k views.

By just throwing all my shit out there, some of it stuck.

My channel started growing and people began reaching out to me for coaching.

I made my first $20 online from a guy in Saudi Arabia and I’ll never forget it.

He wasn’t the last.

More clients came in and I started working with them on a session-by-session basis.

This was a mistake and I’ll explain why later.

But while doing this, I was building something super important.

My online CV.

You see, today employers are increasingly looking at people’s social media profiles.

This is 1000% more true in the freelance job market.

And that was good for me.

Because my YouTube channel landed me a job with a personal development startup in Lisbon.

The owner invited me out there to build his brand with him and a small team.

It was the start of the pandemic so the work was a welcome distraction as the world went mad.

As I was working at this startup I was earning money from clients on the side.

And I wasn’t even putting much effort into this channel at the time.

After working that job for a couple of years, I decided to go all in with my YouTube channel and leave the job.

…and reality slapped me in the face with a wet fish.

My business wasn’t as strong as I thought it was.

Money tanked.

I had to ask my flatmates to pay my rent for me and even spoke to some friends to see if I could sleep on their sofa.

Suddenly, people stopped signing up for coaching because they could sense the desperation in me.

Nobody likes neediness.

But I was broke so what was I supposed to do?

Things got super desperate.

Until I asked myself a question.

Aside from coaching, what skills do I have?

This changed everything.

Turns out, creating so many YouTube scripts had made me a pretty good writer.

I figured at least SOMEONE would pay me to write something.

I created an online profile on Upwork and crossed my fingers.

Soon I was able to land a client within a few weeks.

I was banging out 12,000 words a week and I was making 2 - 4k per month.

The desperation lifted and I got myself out of the shit.

With a clear head, I was able to look at my business objectively.

Instead of offering coaching session by session, I decided to start selling transformational experiences in the form of 12-week packages.

Now I was charging thousands of dollars per client instead of a few hundred.

Money skyrocketed.

And the client results were insane.

This allowed me to do something I’ve been procrastinating on for years.

In January of this year, I left Lisbon and started living as a nomad in Thailand.

It’s been a dream come true.

Thailand is next level. I’ll see you there? 😉

Soon I was able to let go of the freelance writing work altogether, hire a business coach for $4,000 a month and take my business to the next level.

This brings me to today and why I’m talking to you about this.

Because I’ve evolved.

  • I solved the social anxiety problem and taught other men how to do it.
  • I solved the trauma problem and showed other men how to do it.
  • Now I’ve solved the money and freedom problem in my life…

Last month was the best month financially on record.

And now that’s the problem I want to help men solve.


I saw my dad constantly working his ass off while being stressed to the eyeballs making the whole family’s life a misery.

I want to make sure that my work helps men achieve inner and outer freedom so they can be the best versions of themselves.

…and be of powerful service to the people in their lives.

It sounds cheesy but it’s true.

A man who wakes up with no sense of purpose while being financially stressed doing unfulfilling work is a man living a life of quiet desperation.

And he doesn’t need to be.

I’ll leave you with one of my favourite quotes…
