Welcome to (QuitN6 for short)

I’m Buck Flogging (aka Matt Stone), the man, the myth, the LEGEND—helping the unhappily employed quit and do their own shit since 2014.

I’ve been making my living online full-time for 8 years now, and I’ve been trying to help others become successful for about half of that time.

In that time, there has been only one type of client that actually ended up being wildly successful. You know the type: Super smart, dedicated to the point of near obsession, knowing EXACTLY  what they want to do, no job to distract them from building their business, lots of money, and they have something truly unique and innovative to share with the world and are spilling over with confidence and the charisma that comes from their conviction. Oh, and they are of course great speakers, great writers, really good looking, are awesome on camera—the full set of tools…

BUT…

99% of the people that have sought my help in building some kind of successful enterprise online over the years:

  • Don’t have much time (they work full time)
  • Don’t really know what they want to do/don’t have any good ideas
  • Don’t have that much confidence
  • Aren’t geniuses
  • Aren’t weirdly obsessed with anything
  • Aren’t in good financial shape
  • Don’t have any specialized knowledge or skills

The Unicorn

While I started out helping people with a broad spectrum of online business models, I’ve recently changed gears and decided to specialize on one very specific model. I call it the Lead a Team Business Model, and it’s a straight up UNICORN, because…

It doesn’t require a person to have ANY of the things on the list above. 

No ideas? No talent? No skills? No passion? No time? NO PROBLEM!

I know that sounds fucking cheesy, but it’s kind of true. Let me explain… 

How I Found It

I originally had success as a blogger and author, but my interest in that business dried up in 2013. Thinking that I was invincible, I had a flurry of ideas that I thought could replace the income from my old business and then some. Instead of going after one of my ideas, I went after all THREE.

Yes, I tried to launch three new websites at the same time, and I thought I could just work through the night until dawn every day, 12-14 hours staring at a screen with intense focus, without repercussions to my health. 

Spoiler Alert… I WAS WRONG!

 

Weird I know, but it turns out that working all day and night in front of a screen, rarely leaving the house, and sleeping on a vampire’s schedule isn’t healthy for humans. Who knew?!

Yeah, I guess I was just another one of those dumbasses who thinks that abusing yourself is all part of some cool #hustle thing. I can tell you, however, that it is NOT cool. It’s fucking retarded, and we all should be trying to work as little as possible while still getting results, but let me back up for minute…

So yes, the month that I was launching all three sites I started having ominous left shoulder pain and fainting spells. At 36 years of age. It was scary as hell. I can still get a little queasy just writing about it, so I’ll stop.

After I crashed and burned, I found that I couldn’t work more than just an hour or two per day without re-aggravating my symptoms. Yet I had started all these new sites, and I had a new family of three to support. It was pretty scary, and I had to make a sudden leap from being a workaholic solopreneur to building a team and delegating almost everything.

The Rub

So, what all this boils down to is that, because I couldn’t take the workaholic approach to building a business, I had to find a way to make decent money online while working only about 10 hours per week.

Did you catch that?

I found a way to make decent money working only 10 hours per week!

And it’s REALLY EASY. You don’t need to be an expert of any kind. The skills you need are easy to learn. It’s MUCH easier than being an author, blogging, podcasting, doing ecommerce, selling online courses, running an affiliate business, network marketing, being a YouTuber, and just about any other common online venture. 

I now feel 100% CONFIDENT that I can take just about ANYONE, with or without an idea, with or without much free time, with or without specialized knowledge or skills of any kind, and help them build a profitable internet-based service just like mine. All that’s required is 5-10 hours a week of quality effort towards the handful of fundamentals that make this type of business work. I’m pretty sure that almost any service of any kind currently being performed by freelancers can become a successful business just like 100 Covers or BookAds. 

So, what’s the business model?

The Lead a Team business model is quite simple. You choose a service you want to offer, hire a team of low wage workers in the Philippines to fulfill that service, and use the secret sauce that I’ve discovered that can turn ordinary workers into EXTRAORDINARY ones. 

If that sounds unappealing and uninspiring and maybe even a little intimidating at first glanceKEEP READING.

Like I mentioned earlier, I was cast into leading a team by virtue of being unable to work due to health issues (caused by working too much!). I was not excited nor passionate about it, but rather resentful of having to delegate. I had no idea what I was doing and put ZERO effort into mastering leadership. My team started out functioning fairly well, but as time went on we all became increasingly less happy and less successful together. The more things went wrong, the worse my leadership got. Eventually it all crashed and I let the whole team go.  

But when I started building my book cover design site, 100 Covers, I started with a completely new attitude. 100 Covers had a tight budget—offering custom book covers for just $100. So I knew the only way things were going to be successful is if I could turn ordinary, low wage workers into highly-skilled, highly-motivated specialists with big dreams of becoming VERY competent professionals.

To most that probably sounds like an impossible task, but I knew if I could get designers doing covers for ~$30 on average (that my competitors were charging $300-500 for), then I could keep prices low and just destroy them. 

Well, my competitors were never really my motivation. Rather, I wanted to make customers REALLY happy—offering a better product than they were expecting for the price they were paying

Another service of mine, BookAds, had just experienced major problems keeping customers happy, so I really felt the pain of what it’s like to consistently underwhelm customers. It was a powerful motivator to do the OPPOSITE and totally blow people’s asses out of their chairs.

That is what drove me to try to figure out how to turn ordinary workers into badasses with visions of their future greatness in mind when they sit down to work. 

And I absolutely did it. I mean, REALLY. None of my designers even had book cover design experience when they started, and in less than a year they all became top tier book cover designers. Like top 10% in the industry. And we’re just getting started. Their skills are still rapidly ascending. 

Having accomplished that, I now realize that: 

  1. ) Being able to turn ordinary workers into exceptional ones is one of the most valuable skills a person can possess. In striving to learn this skill, you are mining pure fucking gold. If I wanted to, I’m certain I could buy up any failing fast food franchise and make millions of dollars in short order just by overhauling the mindset, beliefs, and culture inside the kitchen. I most certainly WON’T be doing that, but that’s the power of GIVING A GARGANTUAN FUCK about leading those working for you to their maximum potential—in work and in life.
  2. ) I didn’t even do that good of a job. I did much better than most, but I could have done MUCH better. I was mostly just experimenting based on some concepts I’m only casually familiar with. I’m at only the tip of mastering leadership and unlocking people’s potential, but my DESIRE AND FOCUS on it easily put me ahead of 95% of those currently in a leadership role of some kind.  
  3. ) The key to making these types of businesses work is the leader having a passion for leadership itself, not necessarily the service being provided. I mean, I like book covers and have a decent eye for what a good one looks like, but that has next to nothing to do with why my designers have quickly become so competent. They are succeeding because their leader is obsessed with helping them become successful, and every communication with them is carefully and intentionally-crafted with their success in mind. 

The process is pretty simple…

  1. Come up with a good idea for a service (I have dozens)
  2. Figure out a good name for it
  3. Find a cheap domain that works and buy it
  4. Get a logo done (I provide it in-house)
  5. Write the sales copy for the simple 1-page site (I’m happy to write it for you)
  6. Put a job posting out there (done through my paid subscription to my favorite hiring service, at no extra charge to you, and I’ll write that too!)
  7. Set up a Slack channel for you to communicate with your workers and share files (free)
  8. Do a few practice projects
  9. Do a few projects for beta clients (I’ll get these for you)
  10. Build the website (done in-house with my web and graphics team)
  11. Get your first few real clients (I’ll get these for you)
  12. Slowly bring in business as your first worker or two can handle it
  13. Slowly expand the team and bring in more business in tandem

It’s really not much more complicated than that.

 I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKING!!!

Yes, if you’ve read this far, I know EXACTLY what you’re thinking right now. You’re thinking… 

  1. ) I don’t know how to do anything that can be offered as a service… OR… Why can’t I just do the service myself? Why do I have to hire people to do it? 
  2. ) I really don’t want to be dealing with hiring people and paying them every month and all that stuff. Sounds kind of intimidating. I’d rather just work by myself. 

I get it. I used to feel that way, too. But I promise you these are NOT legitimate objections to creating a business like this. 

For starters, I honestly believe that NOT being able to offer a service yourself is key. If you don’t know how to do it, you have ZERO RISK of getting stuck doing all the work yourself instead of training a team to do it! This is probably the most common fatal flaw of small business owners. One of the best-selling business books of all time—The E-Myth Revisited, dissects this error marvelously. 

When you get mired in doing the day-to-day work, it’s usually easier to just dive in and do it yourself than it is to actually take someone who’s bad and turn them into a BAD MOTHERFUCKER. That limits your workers’ ability to improve, and your business will suffer greatly as you won’t be able to step back and focus on what really matters to the success of a business… 

  1. Hiring and inspiring great workers
  2. Delivering exceptional customer service
  3. Crunching your numbers
  4. Marketing your business
  5. Actually making a profit

As far as being scared of being in charge of a team and working with others, you are probably suffering from Tiny Dick Syndrome (TDS). It’s a common affliction suffered by both males and females on the lower rungs of the socioeconomic hierarchy. But it’s a curable condition. I suggest you start your treatment by pondering the following… 

 

 

The Four Stages of Financial Enlightenment

I consider there to be four stages of financial enlightenment: 

Stage 1: Work for others

Stage 2: Work for yourself

Stage 3: Have others work for you

Stage 4: Have your money work for you

It’s possible to actually skip stages 2 and 3 by locking up a very high paying job, being frugal, and saving up enough money to retire and live off the interest and dividends of your investments. 

But I’m guessing if you’re reading this, working for others full-time for multiple decades and/or living frugally simply isn’t good enough to meet the higher standards you have for your life. I expect more from life, which is why the longest I’ve ever worked full-time as an employee in my entire life is 9 months! And the only way I was able to endure that was by being a manager and making everyone else do the work while I sat around in the back working on my first online business. No joke! 

The jump from Stage 1 to Stage 2 is what most people are trying to do by starting an online business. It’s how I started and had my first success. It was a HUGE achievement—putting my life on a completely different trajectory—and I don’t regret it even though I nearly worked myself to death. 

But skipping right to Stage 3 puts you MUCH closer to reaching financial enlightenment. You are not bound to how many hours you can work. Your earning potential is unlimited. And it’s EASIER! The only real skill you need to possess is leadership, and I can teach you that a lot faster than I can teach someone how to make a great book cover! 

More importantly, you will strengthen yourself psychologically in ways you cannot even begin to imagine by assuming a leadership role. The only difference between a leader and a follower is that the leader FEELS more important. Undergoing this personal transformation will absolutely change your life. 

Last but not least, you WILL have a passion for leading a team as you start doing it. When you put yourself in a place of responsibility for others, you won’t have to sit around questioning the meaning of life every day or try to motivate yourself to work. It’s like having a child. Your instincts kick in, and you find yourself uplifted and inspired to help the people you’re connecting with fulfill their dreams of becoming valuable, highly-skilled professionals. 

So, would you like me to help you build and lead a team of your own? 

Want to learn the powerful skill of turning ordinary workers into extraordinary ones—leading a team of workers through their own transformation—and undergoing one of your own in the process? 

Want to have a profitable business a year from now that consistently exceeds customers’ expectations and makes money with only around 5-10 hours of your time each week?

If so, I’d be HONORED to do everything in my power to help you get there. 

I’ll be accepting one new client each month in 2019.

The cost for those spots is $10,000 each.

Yeah I know. Most don’t have that just sitting around. But I assure you it’s a rather trivial amount to pay to have a profitable business a year from now that only eats up 5-10 hours per week of your time, that is actually really fun and rewarding to operate, and has the potential to earn great money down the road. If you’ve been wanting to have a successful internet-based business for ages and haven’t been able to pull it off yet, scrounge together whatever money and available credit you can find to grab one of these spots.

As an added perk, these types of businesses are very well-suited to being sold at Empire Flippers. The going rate for internet businesses is about 35 times monthly profit, so if you can get your service business up to a meager $2,900 per month in profit, you’ve already got a business that is worth $100,000—10X what I’m charging for 12 months of in-depth mentorship.

Screw calling it “mentorship.” It will be serious almost-done-for-you hand holding.

If you’ve struggled to come up with a decent idea for an internet business, you’re tired of writing and publishing books that make less than $1,000 lifetime or starting blogs and podcasts that no one ever finds, and you’re fucking sick of your job and really want to build something on the side that can allow you to escape in a year or two, then I really believe this is your most likely path to success. I’d love to show you the way.
