Should I hire A VA for Backlinks and Tasks?

Its been tricky trying to decide which project to work on each day, having so much to do often means you just stop, frozen, like a rabbit in headlights. It makes you less productive than having just one task because you get easily distracted and keep going off on tangents.

Then someone will call, it could be a lead, then you stop what you were working on. Its then tricky to start over again.

My head is full of tasks…

It’s finished! ….Well, more or less

Had a long hard graft today. Must have been 12 hours straight of full on web designing and its ready to go live. There are still more adjustments I want to make and I have ideas for more content and pages but at some point you just have to walk away and get on with something else….

The clock is ticking on this massive challenge and on day 9 I’m not where I want to be. Anyway the site is good enough to show people and start prospecting with, just need to get the business listed on Google and social media and put in all the links.

My graphic designer guy in Indonesia has finished all the logos and sent them over. Although I don’t want to mention the name of the business.

Branding is so important and I really wanted to make sure i had the right image going on.

My First Income and Expenses Report:

At the end of every month I will report on my profitability of my businesses. Hours worked on each business, expenses, Upfront commissions and of course residual income made.

Residual income is the goal but lets get something straight. You have to work damn hard upfront to create the passive income in the first place. So the hours worked, on the online business, are going to be massive initially but what you will see is the res. inc. coming in from my NWM business (network marketing business) where there will be almost zero hours worked each month.

However this took me 4 years working part time alongside my main business to create. Now is the time to reap the rewards….sit back and watch the residual come in on auto-pilot!

Welcome to my first ever blog post

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is my first attempt at writing and keeping a blog.

My name is Thomas Adam Forest

I have set this up to keep a track of my progress in my business building, at the moment I don’t really have any intention of growing an audience but if you somehow stumble across this blog and wish to join me on my mission and read my ramblings you are more than welcome. This blog is really for me to monitor myself and make everything i do accountable.

I am a self titled “Residual Income Entrepreneur” and believe that the journey of happiness and success must involve the creation of huge residual income. Residual income is something I have been passionate about creating for the last 4 years. In my opinion residual or passive income means financial security and independence on a monthly basis whilst being able to choose EXACTLY what you want to do each day. To be able to pursue the things that you love and enjoy on a daily basis without the stress and pressure of having to go to a job.

Ive just designed my logo for the site… it is in its full glory.

Hope you like it!


It means being able to retire when you wish and having the resources to live a fulfilling life and having absolutely everything you need and everything you could ever want. Sound like eutopia or a silly dream? Well I can absolutely guarantee that it is very possible and many others have already achieved it.

I aim to write a little report each day about my activities. I will also be listing all my expenses and my income as it grows over the months and years ahead. I have already created a residual income with a Network marketing business which I am very proud of and this blog launch marks the launch of my next residual income enterprise which is an automated online lead generation business.

I have signed up to a training program which maps out from A to Z the process to follow to build a successful online business.

I have already being following this program for the last 3 months but due to my busy schedule and my job not a lot has been achieved! So I’ve booked 2 months off, yes! Rented an office so Im away from all the family/children chaos. So what an exciting time because I am free for the next 60 days to do nothing but build my residual income business!
