What do you want to do with your life? I’m not asking “What do you do for a living?”. Personally, I want to be a dotcom mogul. I want one (or a few) websites that I can work on full time and earn my own dollar. I would have to be making at least $100,000 a year in profit. That’s not too much considering that I have to pay for my own medical insurance and other benefits as well as tough it out through any tough times while also saving a large portion (in case I go dot-bust).
Here’s one guy that I slightly look up to, John Chow. I believe I found him while looking at ShoeMoney’s blog. John makes well over $100,000 a year. John obviously has some sort of vision. He sees how to make profit from things, and this naturally transcends to web pages and sites. John also has worked hard which is huge intangible, personally I would love to just come up with a great idea and work in a mediocre style
Lastly John has perfected the art of link baiting and article writing. His main website TheTechZone.com is all about reviewing technical and computer related products. I’m not sure why he is so good at article writing/posting. Perhaps he has worked hard at it or maybe he was gifted a talent. I don’t believe that his native language is English either which humbles me and my attempts to write articles. A native speaker should be able to link bait and write better articles by default. John seems to have a skill that I haven’t been able to develop yet.
If you are interested in writing good, interesting articles (that are mostly technical in nature), or want to learn how to become a dot com mogul, I suggest checking out John’s blog.
