June 2012 Income Report

Net Income: About $1000
AlphaCasual Productions: $2000

Honeyplex: $-1000

Lessons Learned

  • Ok guys, I has come to my attention that these income reports can be a good thing and bad. Getting this level of information out was my original intention. You see, I wanted to chart out a course for myself AND for others to follow in my foot steps. In chronicling each month you will see the ups and downs I experience as a entrepreneur.
  • At the same time, I do put myself in an interesting position in that other competitors can learn from our sales numbers and figure out how to better compete with us. Haters may report discrepancies in my reports to the IRS and make trouble, etc.
  • These things do not matter to me that much, because first of all, competition is normal and we do not see them catching up to us any time soon. If they did, then they deserved it. Second, my income reports generally are lower in profit because we stack on legitimate business expenses against revenue so that we maximize the legal benefits we receive in tax protection as a business entity.
  • If you want me to continue posting my income reports in detail, please leave a comment. Otherwise, I will generalize my monthly income progressions in ball park figures like this post.
  • Thanks! -Vince

Lessons:
1. Costs are now controlled for Honeyplex business expansions
2. For a while I was mad at others around me, and then I realized I was really mad at myself – for becoming one of the employees and not guarding my mind against influences that may be negative to accomplishing my goal
3. The idiocy and craziness of the people around me should not be affecting me that much, unless I myself was involved with their problems in some way. As long as I am making the moves I need to make in my time, the rest of really up to me. Emile was able to help me see this.

Hugh Hefner on Reinventing Yourself

Excerpt from Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead by Neil Strauss

In the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles, Hugh Hefner, age seventy-two, sat in the library in his second skin: a red smoking jacket and black silk pajamas…

How would you feel if Kimberly (former wife) started dating twin brothers?

Hefner: We’ll cross that bridge when we get there. But, actually, I think the fact that I am seeing there ladies rather than one probably does make it easier for her. If I were seeing only one person continually, then it would be a much closer comparison to the marriage and that would be, by its nature, more difficult.

What about plastic surgery? Do you think people have taken it too far?

Hefner: I think it’s like medicine. Anything that makes you feel better about yourself is perfectly appropriate. Why should one be required to stay in a box that was handed to them by either nature or by their parents or peers? Why not create yourself? Why not be the person you want to be? Read more
