I’m a “born entrepreneur”. I always think of new solutions, new ways to do things, to solve problems. One of the biggest issues in the world for 99% of the population is financial security. That’s why I started Hacked. To help people see what I see. I want people to think like me, like an entrepreneur. There’s always a solution to a problem, and there are multiple ways to capitalize on such a solution.
The future is automated; people will have a more unstable work situation. I’m living by a set of rules, that might be useful to look into. Rules that can help you become more independent. Help you get a better life, as healthy finances reduce stress and increase possibilities. Possibilities of self-realization, to be more social, to experience more, and to provide support to others.
My income is rapidly increasing
I probably hit a nerve with Hacked.com since we have seen a rapid growth in members. Nothing makes me happier, and it gives us the opportunity to expand Hacked.com and to introduce new experts and quality content.
As most of you know, I’m also running CCN.LA, which is doing quite well (mostly due to the rapid increase of cryptocurrencies!) Since I have a job with a stable income at a shipping company, the profits of CCN and Hacked are helping me to get more funds to expand and invest.
If you do not have two or more revenue streams, I suggest that you start experimenting with a few ideas and start small for yourself. This advice is important for both traders and employees. Traders cannot rely on monthly profits, we all know that markets go up and down. Cryptocurrencies have so far been an exception, but in 2014/2015 it went bear and many people lost a lot of money, including me. Traders should find a second revenue stream as a backup in case your assets collapse. Employees should try to establish a second revenue stream, as they can get fired quite easily.

My measures to financial freedom
- Secure a second revenue stream
- Always be on the lookout for new opportunities
- Never lose money
- Create a budget
- Invest smart and diversified (e.g. don’t put everything into cryptocurrencies in case of a collapse)
- Experiment, fail multiple times
- Quickly readjust your focus and energy; if something doesn’t work, do something else.
- Believe in yourself
- Have patience; growth doesn’t always come easy
What I’m focusing on
I didn’t know if Hacked.com would be a success or not. I’ve owned the domain for the last three years. I’ve launched multiple concepts which all failed. I even ended up trying to sell the domain in January 2017. Thank God I did not get the price I was asking for. I flipped it around in February into something I believe in, something I am really passionate about. If Hacked.com can help just one person to become financially independent, I will consider it a success. That’s my main goal.
When a venture or project get traction, it’s imperative that you keep your focus and keep improving it. Only then can you start witnessing a massive ROI.
It is important that whatever you do, you love what you’re doing. If you do not have a passion for your projects, you won’t be able to last long. You should try to establish a team, a team that you trust and can share successes and even failures with. It will make you become the person you are meant to be.
What are your thoughts? Do you have a second revenue stream?
