What Does 2,016 Books Feel Like?

Our First Book Shippment

What does 2,016 books feel like?

Well, I am now a proud knower of that question. Heavy. Delightfully real and heavy.

Staring into a computer monitor can feel discouragingly stationary and uneventful. But when 2,016 hardcover books slammed my driveway, and lined my game room walls yesterday afternoon, suddenly it was refreshingly real.

I’ve come a long way. Yesterday served me as a much needed reminder of this. Most of the time I’m looking far down the road, keenly aware of how far I have yet to go. It’s hard to remember to stop, turn around, and enjoy the progress I’ve made. Receiving my first book shipment made me see, and heft this progress. The physical evidence proving how far I’ve come was a happy and motivating sight. We actually made 2,016 books…Cool!

Now on to the next milestone – selling 2,016 books.

    This is great man! Hitting 1,000 subscribers on YouTube was awesome. Probably my biggest milestone was when I landed my first sponsor at $500/month. It was and is pretty tiny in the grand scheme, but it represented a lot of late nights, sacrifices, awkwardness, some money, getting out of my comfort zone, headaches from staring at the computer screen (literally), arguments, and a lot of other token prices paid along the way.

    Next significant milestones are 10,000 subscribers, and $1000/month in income. Hoping to hit both by Feb!

      Good to hear from you, Dan! I like your style. We got to do lunch again sometime before you’re famous in February!
