Hey there. My name is Jay.
I’m a blogger, fashion brand owner and online entrepreneur. And a very happy person 🙂 I make my money online and live an awesome, adventurous life, despite coming from a small, poor country. I travel, go out, meet fascinating people and make music in my spare time.
But things didn’t always look so good for me. I’ve been struggling to find my purpose in life for over 10 years and I’ve been miserable most of this time. Last year I barely survived a devastating major depression. It was so tough, it nearly crushed me – I couldn’t sleep, I hardly ate, I barely walked, spoke and made decisions. But as hard as it was, it opened my eyes for so many things – what’s important to me, how to find my purpose, how to achieve balance in life, how not to care about what others think and HOW TO MAKE MONEY.
Today I know that life gives to givers and takes from takers, so I started giving generously. Everything has since been so much easier and more abundant that I’ve promised myself that I would share everything I know and learn with others to spare them the suffering I’ve been through.
But enough about me.

3 CRUCIAL PREREQUISITES TO MAKING MONEY ONLINE
Before you start making money online, there are three decisive principles you have to make part of your mindset. Seriously, before you got those down, there’s no sense in starting your thing online. Those three principles will create a mindset shift that will put you in the position to succeed.
1. Get out of the scarcity mentality
This was one of the hardest things to do but certainly the most important. You see, if you’re used to working hard and struggling to make enough, it’s not easy to understand that making money can be easy. That life can be easy and fun. That there is enough for everybody and there’s always more coming your way, even when the economy is down and times are tough.
But as Jim Rohn put it, you don’t pursue money, success, recognition. You attract it. If you’re constantly having trouble making enough money, you probably have some hard-wired beliefs about money that just prevent you from approaching your work the right way.
This was certainly true in my case. I firmly believed it’s hard to make money, that there’s never enough, that I’m not good with money, that I’m not smart enough. I attracted scarcity by firmly believing in it. But the moment I realized that, I started changing my self-talk and the story I was constantly telling myself. I started visualizing my bank account growing, me having dinner with my girl at expensive restaurants, spending and shopping without regrets, making much more than I make now with a fraction of the efforts. And money started flowing my way.
Making money online is about making money in general. You need to overcome your hindering biases first.
2. Learn to essentialize
You’re probably working 9-5 or you’re just busy like most of us, so you won’t have all day to switch to making money online. You’ll start putting an extra hour or two every night and several hours on weekends. So if you don’t know how to essentialize and prioritize, you will never get too far.
You need to use shortcuts. Quick wins keep the momentum and enthusiasm and that can be game-changing. You’ve probably heard about the 80/20 rule, a.k.a. the Paretto principle. It suggests that 20% of our efforts produce 80% of results and stretches to all areas of life. 20% of your contacts fill up 80% of your time. 20% of criminals commit 80% of all crime, etc.
To make money online, you need to be start off by:
- First, reducing distractions and ignoring everything non-essential that brings you no results – this will free up time for the things that actually bring you money.
- Second, constantly keep track and analyze what makes most impact and brings most results in your online business and do more of that.
3. Set specific goals
Imagine getting on a plane without a destination. You can end up anywhere, if the plane doesn’t run our of fuel before that. You don’t want any of those options, right?
That’s why setting a few milestones and goals is really important. Get as specific as possible – how much money you want to be making a day / month and by which date. Be realistic – start with a $500 extra bucks or $1000 a month in 2 months’ time – as much as you deem probable for success at that very moment.
Don’t worry, those goals don’t have to be permanent. You can always change them but you won’t get far if you don’t know where you’re going.
