State of the Union
Mission Statement Reminder
What is the BowTiedBum community’s mission?
The greater mission is simple:
Get as many people as possible from 0 WiFi income streams, to multiple WiFi income streams in 2023 (and beyond). With each of these income streams having the potential to be $10K+ a year.
Not some piped dream. Not “maybe I’ll start tomorrow.” Not something you’ll put off doing forever. Actionable advice that ANYONE can do to generate multiple streams of income. In a step-by-step, no BS, no fluff manner.
Learning this credit card game and applying it will help you earn $10K+ a year forever, but starting your own biz will help supercharge your CC earnings while profiting from your own biz.
Starting Your Own Scalable Biz
This is absolutely critical.has stressed the importance of starting your own biz since Day 1. And starting is the hardest part. Luckily, this is the easiest time in human history to start your own business thanks to all of the resources in the jungle.
Many of you have already started your own Amazon FBA business by following the Amazon Arbitrage Guide, and are well on your way to earning and additional $10K+ from that.
You need to start something ASAP. If you don’t have a different biz in mind, Amazon FBA is a great way to start, and that course give you step-by-step actionable advice to get started. It also pairs very well with the credit card game, hence why I keep iterating that it’s a great option.
While earning $10K+ a year from credit card churning is great, if you’ve stumbled upon this side of the internet and Money Twitter…. You’ll quickly realize that you’re barely scratching the surface with what is possible.
You need to reframe how you think about money and kill your limiting beliefs. Remember, WiFi Money is not linear.has a great "Ultimate WiFi Money Guide" that discusses possible routes as well. You don’t have to stick to Amazon FBA, but you do need to start something, and quick. Time is not on your side.
BowTiedBum Survey Results
As you many of you know, a couple months ago I conducted a survey at the beginning of Q3. I was looking for feedback from the community in regards to how we could improve and make your experience better.
The results were quite humbling. I’m extremely grateful.
Many of you said there’s nothing you’d change, and to continue exactly as is. While I certainly appreciate that, I’m constantly striving to improve this community as much as I humanly can.
There were three takeaways I got from your feedback, and I wanted to mention each one and the actionable steps I plan on taking to address them:
1. More discussion on potential WiFi Money businesses and how to get started
In Q3 and Q4, I’ll dedicate a few more posts to starting WiFi Money businesses, and the best way to get started. I have an entire post coming shortly on how I identify the best educational resources for each niche. Remember, if you’re starting out, you shouldn’t be completely on your own. You want to learn as much knowledge as possible and have access to the best resources you can, to increase your odds of success.
Think about it…You might have made some money reading random credit card blogs, but having access to the BowTiedBum community and its members allows you to get any question answered quickly, and the follow along guides help make the entire process idiot proof.
2. Organize information better to help beginners start and avoid the Slack Group getting inundated with beginner questions
At this point there are a ton of posts and a ton of content for beginners to sift through. It can be quite daunting when you’re first getting started. I’m going to create a comprehensive “getting started” post that address this. Additionally, I’ll be open to feedback once I post that, and we can update it as needed, so that it stays relevant and continues to be the best place to start.
Hopefully this will avoid a lot of the beginner questions in the Slack Group.
That said, I NEVER want this to become a community to turn into Reddit or become pretentious and hostile to beginners.
We’ll continue to always welcome complete beginners with open arms, and construct the community to give them the best possibility of success.
If you’re brand new and are willing to but in a bit of effort, we’re here to help you as much as we can.
Plain and simple.
3. More video content discussing each process
This will happen. I’ll be working on a comprehensive video series that offers hand-holding throughout the entire process of this game. Hoping to finalize this towards the end of Q4.
I understand that many of you are more visual learners, and want to be able to see each step and simply follow along. I’m going to do my absolute best to create a video series that helps you do just this.
For all intents and purposes. Fluz is back up and running smoothly. Same same, but a little different. Now that it is back up and I’m back home, we can focus on the next project: launching the affiliate opportunity.
Now that Fluz is back, we are ready to launch soon. I’ll do one final “last look” trial in a couple weeks that will allow anyone that is interested to lock in a Substack subscription which will include free Slack access for life as long as their Substack membership stays active. After this period, Slack access will be billed separately and everyone here will have an oppurtunity to be an affiliate and create an additional income stream.
This is one of the biggest oppurtunities since the BowTiedBum inception and I’m extremely excited for it. Right before the launch, we’ll have a comprehensive post that will include how to get involved, best ways to promote the offer, and general best practices.
We’ll also have incentives.
The first person to have a $1,000 affiliate day, and the first person to reach $10,000+ in affiliate earnings will recieve a prize. More on that later.
While those numbers sound tough, I’ll be paying out 50% to affiliates. Way above industry standards.
The whole point of this affiliate launch is to help you guys create additional income streams.
Don’t sleep on this. This will be a tremendous oppurtunity.
We’ll keep this in the Slack Group for now. Looking for 1-3 BowTiedBum members that can help me test a new play.
Could be potentially huge.
As always, I’ll never mention or promote anything that I don’t either use myself, or thoroughly vet. This is no exception.
There is a ton of stuff in the pipeline. It’s been an honor to witness this community learn together, and more importantly, earn together. There’s going to be a ton of oppurtunity in Q3 and Q4, and I can’t wait to see how far we all can go.
Good luck to all, and continue to grind. Your future self will thank you.
Time to get to work.
