On Monetizing Your Blog
[The following is part three on what is turning out to be a five part series on blogging as a profession. CLICK HERE
to read part 1. CLICK HERE
to read part 2.]
Blogging frequently emits an alluring but somewhat artificial scent: A scent that naturally baits two brands of people.
The first brand is chiefly folks of the common store bought variety, plain as a bowl of corn flakes. Their gross desire for an easy opt-out of the human comedy is surpassed only by their colossal lack of true ambition. Quite simply, they hate to work, and so are lured into blogging by the fishy smells of the charlatans, the quacks, and the counterfeits.
If what I have just detailed describes you, even distantly, then I must encourage you to pass on. I am not capable of helping you.
Look, I’m not discouraging you or anything like that. There are many bloggers who rake a king’s ransom in the business of swindling. And if I have something to say to these jackals, it’s not to scorn them for sucking in the intellectually underprivileged—that, I leave to God. Rather, it’s to ridicule them for any and all lack of ingenuity in how they go about their business. Insofar as I can tell, the cheats, tricksters, and charlatans have been using the same old, horribly overworked devices since the dawn of this republic. All I’m saying, really, is that it’d be nice to see a quack with some freshness about him.
But here I go off at a tangent. Let us get back to where we were.
The second brand is that of the artist. This person is marked intrinsically by fire in perpetuum
. This is what keeps his blood boiling over, his legs on the trot—and his spirit pushing forward—stopping never at dead ends or dog shit. He understands that security is a false and limiting crutch, and seeks nothing of the sort. His appetite is whetted only for accomplishment.
The artist does not know it all—but has the proclivity to learn it all, to suck it in ad infinitum
. And his chief purpose is to contribute to a whole
greater than himself—if you’re a rationalist you may call it the cosmos—spiritualists would perhaps say it’s celestial—and hippies would probably call it life-force, or something like that. Truthfully it doesn’t matter what you call it, because the net effect is the same: The artist creates.
Are his actions largely money driven? The answer to various degrees is often yes. Sometimes this is in part, other times it is in whole. Either way, the artist is scarcely propelled by anything rooted in altruism. In form, this may appear to be the case, but in substance human essence remains predominantly self-interested. This means little, though, because the true artist—whatever his motives otherwise—invariably aims to create something that is good. And so he thoroughly intends to improve the earthly balance sheet—to strike the asset account with a hard debit.
What I have defined is the artist. But what I have redefined is the entrepreneur: The person who generates value. This is to say the person who helps persons.
If what I have just detailed describes you, then I can help. I can help you to get the word out about the value you create, and I can help you to make a fair return on it.
Our "One Page Business Plan"
Blogging would be the perfect job, save for the fact it’s still a job. It’s a full time gig. So it will beat you up, and, at times, kick you square in the nuts. These are lessons one must learn by hard experience, I suppose, but if you take this as true now it will save you a lot of pain later.
Now if there is one more lesson to be learned before we begin, let it be this: There is no good purpose to be served in promoting crap. Doing so—as any practiced marketer will tell you—only hastens the rate at which people find out you suck. To wit: You ought to be the absolute best at what you do before you start saying you’re any good.
Just something to keep in mind, that’s all.
Now rather than tell you what you should do, I’d like to show you what I do. That is, what I’ve done well, or what’s worked well for me. You may take whatever you’d like—and if you’d like to work closer with me on all this stuff, then I encourage you to investigate our Killing It With Ketllebells Certification
, where Som and I will help you to develop and implement your own marketing and business plan (online, offline, or both), and teach you how to run large group kettlebell bootcamps.
For ease, I will fill out a “one-page business plan”, answering the three following questions: 1. What Do I Sell (and How Much Do I Charge)?
2. Who Do I Sell It To?
3. How Do I Get The Word Out?
I’ll answer the first question now, and save the other two for a later post.
What Do We Sell and How Much Do We Charge?
This blog is a major marketing vehicle for both my online and offline businesses, if I may presume the two can be separated out.
I’ll start with what we do offline.
My Killing It With Kettlebells bootcamp business is run out of The Dragon Gym in Exton, PA. I have largely opted out of personal training as a service offering. Instead, I run six large group classes a week: Mondays and Wednesdays at 12pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm, and Wednesdays and Fridays at 5:30am.
Pricing for our bootcamps ranges from $149-199/month depending on the level of membership.
We also host multiple workshops and seminars throughout the year. [ I suppose now would be as good a time as any to shamelessly plug Strength Fest
Pricing for workshops and seminars ranges anywhere from $99-999 depending on the event.
Lastly, we offer our Killing It With Kettlebells Instructor Level Certification
and Fitness Business Development Program. This is where Som and I teach you how to teach large group kettlebell bootcamps. We also show you the ins and outs of our kettlebell business, and help you to create and implement your own business and marketing plan. We limit the group to 12 candidates. This is not a beginner kettlebell course
. This is a course for those who are interested in learning to coach large group kettlebell classes, and for those who are already in, or are seriously considering opening their own fitness business
. In short, we help you to do what you love and make good money doing it
This is our most expensive offering, but I’ve heard it’s really worth it. If you think you might be a good candidate for this certification, email me at PatFlynn@ChroniclesOfStrength.com
with the subject line of “KIWK” and I will send you a series of questions for you to answer so that we may figure that out. We can even get on the phone and chat about it, if you’d like. No obligation. Promise.
Pricing for our Killing It with Kettlebells Certification ranges from $997-1997 depending on when you register.
There are a few other things I do offline, but those are my major profit centers. So let us move now to what I do online.
Our online business is a mix of bigger ticket items, lower end entry points, and continuity programs. We’ll start with the latter. The Chronicles of Strength Inner Circle
and the Chronicles of Strength Print newsletter is my current continuity program—that is, this is a program where membership is billed monthly. The Chronicles of Strength Inner Circle
includes a full print newsletter
mailed out to members every month. This is quite frankly my best work. I put more time into that newsletter than I do anything else, and I love doing it.
Additionally, members of the Inner Circle get private email coaching access to me, coaching call-in days with me, monthly training webinars, monthly recipes, monthly workouts, programming, you name it. The Inner Circle members are my best and most loyal customers, so I do everything I can to help them succeed—to provide them with value far above and beyond what they pay to be a member each month. As an entrepreneur or business owner, your aim should always be to exceed all expectations. Unless of course your aim to run a mediocre business.
Pricing for my Inner Circle members ranges from $19-39/month depending on the level of membership and whether or not they live inside North America (postage is a killer).
*If you are not yet an Inner Circle member, I’d love it if you tried it out for a month. You can cancel anytime, so there’s no risk when you sign up
On the lower end of the pricing spectrum there mostly sits a selection of eBooks and ePrograms. The Birth of a Hero Vol 2
stands tall at the top of the charts, sells like ice in Hell.
These range from $27-99 depending on the product.
The bigger ticket items include private coaching with either Som or me (we offer both business and fitness coaching), training webinars, and specialized programs.
The pricing for these ranges from $299-699.
If you are interested in private coaching and would like to know more about what we can help you with, email me at PatFlynn@chroniclesofstrength.com
with the subject line of “coaching”.
Effectively, that is the sum of it all. Effectively enough, anyways. PS

The Century - 100 Rep Bodyweight Workout
The Century, so entitled by its lofty rep composition, is a proficiency exam courtesy of the elusive Paul Wade, author of Convict Conditioning.
Assuming I made no misinterpretations, the task is as follows:
40 x squat
30 x push up
20 x hanging knee raise
10 x pull up
40 x squat
30 x knee push up
20 x hanging knee raise
10 x australian pull up
I think I passed. Som did pretty good too, but I think he may have missed a rep on the squats. That's OK, though, because he's ninja.

In life, there is no more painful a curse, than to be on poor terms with yourself. Also note that such a curse is self-inflicted through the neglect of what I believe to be the two foundational requirements for exceptional living.
1. Vitality of body.
My definition of which is one that is free from all ailments as far as practicable. A body that requires little but offers much, is resilient and spirited. A healthy body is not just absent ill-health, but vigorous.
2. Tranquility of mind.
Tranquility of mind (a concept I first learned from reading the works of the Ancient Greek philosopher Democritus) is what the Greeks called “euthymia”:
“A mind that is well-disposed to itself, happy in its own condition, and can bear its own company. A mental state that follows a smooth and unwavering course and is not interrupted with false excitements or depressions.”
Everything is as your thoughts make them so. No external pleasures can override the deep lack brought about by a lack of confidence and satisfaction with oneself.
These two criterions are, unmistakably, unattainable. Ideals are not meant to be obtained, only pursued, for it is the pursuit, not the obtainment that matters. Do not judge success on whether or not you ever reach such a pinnacle, but rather, who you become in your quest. Should anyone ever achieve either of these two states, I suppose that’d make them a sage. Such people seem to be as prevalent as unicorns.
The 5 Principles for Exceptional Living:
1. Eat Less and Move More
Over production of insulin, from a high eating frequency, is slowly cooking America to death. Combine that with a sedentary lifestyle and you’ve discovered the function for accelerated aging.
On the contrary, short intense exercise combined with fasting keeps the mind and the body biologically young.
Do not overcomplicate the matter as most do. You do not need a strict exercise regimen or dietary protocol to achieve physical excellence.
Abstain from food during the day, move around often and sporadically (sprint, push, pull, crawl, roll, squat, etc), and consume the vast majority of your calories in the evening.
2. Read Often
Words are nourishment for the mind. Make it a habit to read every day. But avoid the trash. While you may find a penny in a garbage can, there are much better places to look for something of value.
A book is only worth reading if it challenges you intellectually, and encourages you to reach and pull yourself up to a higher level of enlightenment. I doubt you’ll receive any such courtesy from the Twilight series.
Here are my three personal favorite non-fiction works that I reference almost daily:
- How to Read a Book by Mortimer Adler
- The Elements of Style by William Strunk and E.B. White
- Psyco-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz
3. Do Nothing Some of the Time
I challenge you, starting tomorrow, to do nothing for ten minutes every day. As I did on my first attempt, you will find this meditative drill to be exceptionally difficult. The objective is to be only in the present. Do not let your mind wander into the future, or regress to the past.
In today’s crowded society, meditation has fallen to the wayside. People have grown uncomfortable in solitude, and often seek out company not because they need it, but because they cannot bear their own.
Learning to find comfort in your own mind takes time, practice, and consistency, but yields deep feelings of self-satisfaction and serenity. Nothing works better than doing nothing for resetting the mind. Ten minutes a day is all I’m asking.
4. Keep a Few Good Friends and Avoid Contamination
You become the average of the five people you hang out with most—isn’t that what they say?
Nobody is perfect, so when pursuing friendship, I encourage you to seek out the “least bad”.
Disease starts when you mix the healthy with the sick. So avoid those who spend their time complaining, whining, and lamenting. Their intentions may be all well and good, but their negativity is infectious.
Also avoid people who preface their sentences with statements such as “can I be honest with you”, or “can I tell you the truth?” What the hell are these people getting at anyways? Such pretenses are unnecessary to people who are genuinely sincere, and indicative of those who are only conditionally honest.
5. Find a Purpose
What makes it worth being born?
What causes joy in being numbered amongst the living?
What makes it all worth the hustle—the trial, the tears, the sweat?
The answer, I deeply believe, is finding a purpose in life. There is no greater return to be had than from dedicating your time to something greater than yourself.
To this end, I believe that everybody should have a little PMS. That’s a personal mission statement, mind you. Developing a personal mission statement takes time and deep thought, but will offer your life clarity, impetus, and fulfillment.

Success = Imitation:
How To Get What You Want Out Of Life
NOTE: Below is an excerpt from my upcoming book "Fitter,Happier, More Productive". I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it!
These notes are my own.
But they are not all mine.
Does that make sense?
If not, it will soon...
Throughout my unremitting and tireless pursuit of strength and "optimum health", I have thoroughly come to the conclusion that your success is more about what you do, rather than what you think.
Of course you should take time to rid yourself of any“head trash”.
Read As a Man Thinketh.
Go to a Tony Robbins seminar if you have to...
Just know that “thinking” alone will get you nowhere quick. All of the motivation, positive thinking, and “visualization” in the world isn’t ever going to sculpt you the body of your dreams.
And as sexy as it sounds, you will never be able to just “think away” body fat.
And that is really what this book is all about – a collection of notes you can implement immediately.
Throughout this extensive collection of notes, I have quite literally given you every single reason, tool, and opportunity to succeed; and it is now on YOU to take action.
Don’t go out there and over-complicate things.
It’s only as difficult as you make it!
Because when it comes right down to it success is merely imitation.
As unsexy as it sounds, your success heavily depends on your ability to be a copycat!
What I’m really trying to say is that the key to getting what you want out of life is to model yourself after folks who already have what it is that you want!
Modeling, as it is most commonly referred to, is mimicking the behavior of those who are more successful than you.
My greatest success from a physical standpoint didn’t come from reading tireless amounts of research, fitness books, or magazines. For the most part, all that ever did was crowd my mental-bandwidth.
Instead, I found success when I started to make friends with folks much stronger, much leaner, and much smarter than myself.
I began to model my behavior after the folks who already had what I wanted; which was the proverbial “hot-bod”.(Hey, I’m not afraid to admit it…).
I ate like them. I lifted like them. And I tried to live as much like them as I possibly could.
I mean, wolves hang with wolves right?
Sure enough, I quickly became a product of my environment. I became a wolf.
So if you want to be lean, then you better model your behavior off of those who are leaner than you.
If you want to attract wealth, then you better model your behavior off of those who are wealthier than you!
Do you think stopping off at the donut shop every day after work is a strong behavioral reflection of those who maintain a single digit body fat percentage year round?
I’m telling you that it’s not.
Don’t bullshit yourself.
If you’re goal is to drop 30lbs, but your behavior is still reflecting that of a pessimistically obese person, then you’re just lying to yourself.
I can’t think of anything worse than that.
Again, these notes are my own.
But they are not all mine.
They are a collection of the most effective habits, principles, and systems utilized by the worlds leanest, stronger, and most successful people.
I hope you take the time to mimic them to the best of your ability…
And with all of that being said, just be careful what you model yourself after
You may very well become it.
Introducing "The Big Suck"

The gentleman's lifting club is a once a week surreptitious operation with a select few gentleman from my Killin' It With Kettlebells Bootcamp. The mission is to dismantle one lift per week. To break it down into it's most fundamental components and re-learn it from the ground up (often times quite literally).
This week's focus was on the Turkish Get Up. A deceptively simple movement on the periphery, but arguably one of the most complex in terms of inconspicuous, but utterly essential nuances.
And no. I'm not sexist. Sexy maybe.
...But certainly not sexist! We run a women's only as well! It's just that the gentleman this week were kind enough to allow me to record parts of our session for Chronicles.
Below are scenes from our gentleman's only lifting club where I instruct the get up and break it down into it's most fundamental components - pointing out common mistakes and how to fix them along the way. I hope you all enjoy this video serious and obtain great benefit from it. Please post any questions, comments, or even your own tips on learning how to perform a killer turkish get up in the comment section below!

This one's just a saucy bonus.
"He was herculean man - ripped and sinewy, but possessed a seemingly limitless amount of 'hidden' strength. There was no excess bulk on his frame (as that would only serve to slow him down), and when I first set eyes upon this man, I had great confidence in this man's ability to thoroughly kick my ass. I tested that hypothesis many times... and my thesis was spot on. Every time. Humans do learn from negative feedback after all, so each and every lesson (*ass whooping*) only served to make me a better man (at least I like to think so). Looking back, my friend was a truly hardened man. No, my friend was a hard man. And when he spoke, you better believe that I took notes."
(From my upcoming book - "Fitter, Happier, More Productive")
Attempting to reverse engineer the world’s fittest, happiest, and most productive people has been no easy task. Which is precisely why I’ve decided to write a book on it!
Luckily for me, I live in a sort of fantasy land, where I have the opportunity to surround myself with these types of people on a regular basis. (For example: I just had the pleasure of spending an entire day with thirty other fitness professionals and enthusiasts learning from Dr. Charlie Weingroff at our recent athletic enhancement seminar - I’ll post a full review on that shortly.)
Success in everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) ultimately boils down to a highly effective system and/or process - that has been one of my more prodigious culminations in recent years. I actually knew this intuitively, long before I KNEW this – if that makes any sense? But the past three years of my life, which I have feverishly devoted to tirelessly researching and experimenting with the human body, have cemented this belief in stone.
I believe that everybody understands this at least to some degree, and their ultimate success will depend upon what degree that is...
Because when you sit and think about it, what ISN'T a process?
Fat loss is most certainly a process, is it not?
Getting stronger is, by all accounts, a process.
Lowering your cholesterol is undeniably a process.
Making money is indeed a process, as well.
Increasing productivity is most definitely a process.
Correcting dysfunction? Yep, there's a process for that!
Succeeding academically is often tedious but a process, nonetheless.
Making a warm tasty pizza (which you shouldn’t be eating) also involves a process.
And even effective writing is a process. (You better believe I had a method to this madness)
There are many “proven” systems to obtain all of these wonderful things.
That’s not to say that something can’t be done without a process. But throwing spaghetti against the wall and just hoping some of it sticks is a piss-poor way to go about the procurement of success. And without a documented process, how could we ever expect repeatable and/or predictable results?
But of course, there’s a catch:
Some systems are profoundly more effective than other systems. And just because you have a system doesn’t mean it is the most effective system. Learning is a process. And a process is learning! Expertise is knowing which processes are most effective.
A notable example of this would be the "human hamster," who spends hours upon hours trudging on the "treadmill to nowhere", struggling to shed some serious "ell-bees". While the process of turning yourself into a seemingly brain-dead bipedal vermin may eventually work (to an extent at least), it is highly ineffective, inefficient, and downright silly when compared to a variety of other proven systems for weight loss.
So even if you have a system, how do you know that what you are doing is the most effective approach to take? Do you even know????
That’s what I’ve spent the past eight years of my life trying to figure out, and finally, I've condensed my notes and conclusions. In my upcoming book, “Fitter, Happier, More Productive” (any Radiohead fans up in hurrr?? Show some love in the comment section, if you are!), I have summarized my findings and widdled them down to the bare minimum proven systems and processes that are most effective for increasing output, forging the body of your dreams, and saving your own life! Hot freakin' damn!
And today, I want to give you a special sneak peak! What I want to give you is "FIVE FOR FIVE"
