Like many people, Benny hated his job. More than anything in the world he wanted to find work that he loved.
There was just one problem.
Benny had NO idea what he wanted to do with himself.
Way too many people can relate to this feeling of aimlessness. Unless you DO something about it though you’ll be doomed to everlasting aimlessness.
I’m stoked to have Benny Hsu on the show today who shares his journey from wandering generality to a meaningful specific (as Zig would say). In this session you’ll learn:
- What actions Benny took to finally go from aimless to awesome.
- The key to tackling a BIG, overwhelming goal.
- How Benny was able to go from zero to five figures a month in the iPhone app store with no experience.
Listen now: 005: From dead-end job to six figure run-rate (with Benny Hsu)
“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”

Benny had NO idea what he wanted to do with his life. Even after a two year stint overseas he came back with no direction to a job he couldn’t stand.
Rapid Fire Questions
One thing holding him back:
Expecting big results with little work.
One thing he gave up:
Watching the news. It’s all negative, adds no value, and doesn’t help him accomplish anything.
One characteristic that separates him from average:
Taking baby steps every day no matter what.
One habit that helps him succeed:
Exercising. Before Benny started anything else he decided to train for a half marathon. That pursuit and eventual success fueled many more positive changes.
