  • 8/2/11 – $46.03 – elance work
  • 8/2/11 – $193.80 aweber – 1 year prepaid
Lessons:
  1. Good business partners are hard to find as they are. Furthermore, you need to find someone who can put into the business the same effort as you do. If this criteria is not met, it can be the source of much frustration and arguments. Furthermore, you need to find someone who has a different skill set than you. Unless the partnership can add more value than the two combined, (more than 50% each), eventually one of the partners will start feeling like he or she can make more on their own. Therefore, find good partners and do it on a trial basis to begin with.
  2. Setup a bank account early and learn to funnel your money effectively into that channel. A good control on cashflow ensures business flexibility and fluidity.
  3. There were a lot more expenses now that I do not have a tech partner, which means I need to outsouce my work. I also signed up for a separate aweber account and that costs a lot because it was prepaid for 12 months.
  4. Overall though, the expenses are far less than the total 50% cost of the equity ownership in the previous agreement.

The Game: Meeting Girls in the Bay Area (South Bay & San Jose)

For the last few days I have gone out non-stop in the south bay. I refuse to go out to SF, because my goal is to get consistent lays here in the south bay and the logistics don’t workout when you have to drive an hour each way.

I have also been running 9 and 10 game. This is extremely difficult on its own, and even harder in the south bay, where the guy to girl ratio is close to 2:1.  Most really hot girls already have guys in their groups, and you have to disqualify heavily to open their group. Most of the time, the “guy” friend is also trying to get some. But sometimes they are cool.

The 7 Deadly Sins of The Game

August 13, 2011 by Vince Lin  
Filed under God of Style, Learn about Pickup

Sin #1 – Fear

bedazzeled-liz-hurley-she-devil

For most people, it begins with fear. We fear the unknown. We fear life itself. We fear the consequences of not doing “what we are told” and chasing after the outliers of society. And so, we stand in line like the rest of the masses, and follow the conventional wisdom.

Fear of women is often misunderstood by women. As men, we sometimes fear beautiful women. We fear their power over us, and we fear ourselves. Of what we might do in their presence, of the reflection in the mirror of our own self worth compared to her “perceived value”.

When newbies first start learning about game, something about this fear compels them to confront it. Not every hot girl is the devil, and not every one of them is mean spirited. We learn slowly that as men, we are entitled to find a girl we believe to be fully attractive and totally in love with, instead of settling for less.

Nonetheless, many do not get this opportunity, because they are plagued by the first sin in the game: FEAR. This sin takes away our time, our opportunities to meet people, and our precious mental strength just thinking about it! Our days go by unfulfilled. In order to conquer fear, one must name it. Then, face it. Over and over again. Approach Anxiety can be killed, and you can become very good at killing it.

My Verdict = Not Guilty

Sin #2 – Indifference. Sloth

July 2011 Income Report

July ($1070.86)
  • 7/24/11 – $10.00 – new affiliate test
  • 7/20/11 – $20.87 – clickbank
  • 7/20/11 – $129.74 –  SWS
  • 7/20/11 – $109.80 – Affiliate
  • 7/9/11 – $147.00 – Affiliate
  • 7/6/11 – $211.94 – SWS
  • 7/6/11 – $77.76 – clickbank
  • 7/6/11 – $363.75 – Affiliate
Lessons this month:
  • We only made about 1k this month, but a lot of the money came in during August 1-5 and we netted another 1k within 5 days. Sometimes your cash flow comes in later and you have to be ready to expect cash variances from month to month. As always, plan it out and make sure you have enough money to pay your expenses. Always have savings just in case.
  • The new affiliate product we tested wasn’t great, but we are getting record signups and building up a significant list.
  • This month I bought the Seduce With Style business, and going forward my main focus will be on growing that business, the sale of the ebook, and its subsequent upsell programs.
