Without the Internet, how would we be able to take advantage of the system?
Hack the System, as I’ve discussed before, is about looking for loopholes in the system — ones that you can benefit from. I talk about it in my Travel Hacking Report — by searching for loopholes, you can learn how to get a free plane ticket, lose 23 lbs in 28 days, or even exploit a trick to get free offices around the world.
Today, an awesome post on Quora explains dozens of ways that others have cheated the system. These are some great lifehacks and tricks to take advantage of loopholes.
The Biggest Hack — How to Influence People Through Writing
One of the biggest questions I get on this site is, “How can I build an online business, and earn money no matter where I live?”
It’s no secret that I, and many other bloggers, earn money off of our websites. How do we do it though? Sure, I’ve written about tactics to earn money online—but there is more to it than just tactics.
There is a skill. One skill that is necessary to build an online business.
The skill is copywriting
In a guest post a couple weeks back called Three Essential Skills to Success as a Digital Nomad, one of the most commented and discussed skills was Skill #3 — Copywriting. Here are some comments from the post:
Copywriting is the act of crafting words to persuade. You see it on sales page, or opt-in forms, or ads, or anything that drives a user to an action.
And it’s pretty difficult to make a living online without this skill. But, how do you develop it?
I learned it the same way my brother learned, and thousands of others learned—by handwriting other ads. Basically, take famous, high converting copy, and handwrite the ads until you get the gist of how to write, persuasively. The only hard part? Finding the ads.
So, I’ve brought in my good friend, Derek Johansen, on Thursday, to talk to us about how to become a successful copywriter.
On Thursday, Feb 1, at 6pm EST (3pm PST), Derek and I will have a chat about Copywriting. How can you improve? How can you develop your skills? How can you persuade others—and build a business in the meantime?

Besides Copywriting, what are some other ways to Cheat the System?
As I mentioned previously, an awesome post on Quora talks about ways that others found loopholes, and took advantage, of the system. Check out the full thread at Quora, but I’ve pasted some of the highlights below. Special thanks to @timothy_kenny for sending this to me.
