[01:58] Absence of Work And Life Balance:

  • For many years, my work-life balance didn’t even exist. Because I was just obsessed with money.
  • I was so driven by the fear of being poor that even after I made my first million, my motivation remained the same. 

[03:23] Putting A System In Place:

  • After you’ve made your first $10,000 per month or $5,000 per month, whatever that enough number is because then you can start systematizing things.
  • The beauty and the curse of what we do is that we can be making money all the time. And a lot of times, it comes down to what we are doing right now.
  • If you’re the kind of person who is looking for a work-life balance, I suggest you delay thoughts about it until you’re making money for real. And then you can actually create it.
  • For you, that work-life balance might mean that you work late nights, but you don’t work in the morning. Because there are people who just work better at night.

  • Even after I’ve made a lot of money, my lifestyle remains pretty much the same.
  • I’ve never really complained about my work because I love what I do. And I guess that’s been a blessing for me.
  • I jump out of bed and I can be like before I brush my teeth or had my coffee or whatever I can just jump into it.
