1. Read 1 hour per day in the field. Start with an article called The Business by Alwyn Cosgrove and Jason Ferrugia.

2. Read at least 1 hour per week in the area of personal development. Start with How to Win Friends and Influence people by Dale Carnegie.

3. Train at least 20 hours a week. Mastery comes around the 10,000 hr mark. At 20 hours per week you will need 10 years.

Bonus tip: Don’t ever consider making a product or developing a website or e-book until you have accomplished number 3 above.
