Here's the truth about building an online business: this shit is fun. Some might even say addicting.
Here's the thought process of an online entrepreneur:
1. Think of a great idea
2. Sell it in the form of an info product or serve
3. Market it
4. Wake up at 3 am because your dog is barking at your phone for making too many PayPal notification sounds
Who could NOT love that?! Sometimes, it legit feels like I'm printing my own money.
And with that money, I get to spend it in some really awesome ways. What's cool is that a lot of these products and tools are crazy affordable. And I want to share these must-have buys with you today. Cool?
Golden Rose Liquid Lipsticks
This shouldn't surprise you, but I'm a lipstick hoarder. Don't ask me why. The best liquid lipsticks I have ever tried in my life (better than Kylie, better than Stila, better than Anastasia, better than ALL DEM) are the Golden Rose Liquid Matte Lipsticks. Golden Rose is a Turkish brand that first came to my attention when a friend brought one back from a a trip to Istanbul. I now own every shade. And they're like, eight bucks a piece. The fact that no one in the beauty / YouTube community talks about these astonishes me.
Both of Russell Brunson's books
Both DotCom Secrets and Expert Secrets are must-haves for anyone trying to sell stuff on the internet. I don't care if you're trying to sell sailboats, software or sand castles.

This marble Macbook case
As a digital nomad, I'm on the go all the time, so it's super important that I have something both protective and stylish on my computer. I've probably ordered this same marble snap-on case three times now - there's no way in hell my Macbook Air would still be alive without it. And I get compliments on it all the time. It's around 13 bucks. Get it here.
Rich20Something by Daniel DiPiazza
If you haven't picked up Daniel's new book, you ccrrraaazzzyyy. Not only is Daniel a brilliant millennial thought leader, but he's hilarious and really fun to learn from. His book is around 15 bucks on Amazon. Grab it here.
Both of Jen Sincero's books
You Are A Badass and You Are A Badass At Making Money are must-haves for anyone trying to break through their limiting beliefs about success and step up their wealth consciousness game. Plus, Jen is freakin' hysterical and makes you feel like you're her best friend. It's a great time.
As you can see, a lot of my recommendations are books. I love books (almost as much as I love lipstick)!
If you're someone "on a budget", here's some serious advice for you: Never ever ever hold back on buying a book. No matter how much it costs, if you're thinking about it for even one second, just buy it. You never know the impact - even if it's just one new idea - that that book will have on your life. So seriously, get it and get it today. You won't regret it.
