Hey Rock Star!
What better way to start off an email than with a doobie!
Stay with me...
Seriously, how would you like to be a joint rolling technician?
It's actually this guy's dream job.
Thomas Indigaro turned his passion for cannabis into a career as a professional joint roller.
Joint rolling technicians can get paid at least $20 an hour to roll up to 300 joints per day. Thats over $41,000 per year!
Now I am not judging anyone who uses cannabis or advocating that you do...
But this is a prime example of how anyone can take a skill or passion into work or a creative business that they love.
There are opportunities out there; we just have to be on the lookout for them.
Keep those antennae up every day, and you will start seeing those opportunities.
Here is an example, have you ever noticed when you're in the market for a new car...say a 2020 Toyota Rav 4.
You end up seeing them EVERYWHERE!
At the mall, at your neighbors, going down the highway...
There is a technical term for this that Dan Miller has spoken about, but it's basically the age-old principle that:
- We become what we think about
- We see what we think bout
- We succeed and/or fail based on what we think about
So whether you want to become a professional joint roller or be the best in class in your business,
Keep your antenna up and on the lookout for those opportunities, and they will start to show up everywhere if you allow them.
Oh, and if you're still interested in a career as a joint roller, here's the article:

How to Start a Successful Podcast
With Justin Schenck
Podcasts have the reputation of being boring and stuffy, often relegated to the background as the listener moves about their day, but they don’t have to be.
Propelled into the spotlight by the mystery comedy Only Murders in the Building, podcasts have been steadily growing in popularity ever since.

By delivering at the grassroots level, you are given the opportunity to build personal relationships with listeners in a way that traditional medium lacks.
Starting a podcast can seem daunting, especially if you don’t know where to begin or have limited resources, but it can also be rewarding.
