I recently shared very specific launch revenue numbers from Learn Lettering (Related: e060 How Learn Lettering Made $80,000 in 24 Hours With the First $10k in 30 Minutes) because I wanted to show people that it’s possible to make a living pursuing your passion. However, I didn’t want the fact that I was sharing such detailed information to detract from the fact that I’m just a normal guy working hard, doing what I love.

It was that last sentence that stood out to a friend when I explained this. “But you’re not normal,” he said. This bit intrigued me. In this show, Ben and I talk about normalcy and how everyone has the opportunity to sacrifice—we just often don’t want to.

At some point, you have to step back and say, “I can’t let what has happened to me, determine where I’m going.”
