How I Blogged Myself Out Of A Day Job!

My name is Bones Rodriguez, and I have been a full-time actor for over 15 years.

I’ve been on TV, stage and you’ve probably seen me in dozens of commercials.

But I’m not the “usual” actor story.

Instead of waiting tables like most other actors, I learned to make money with the internet by blogging, and creating what I call “Online Vending Machines”.

These “online vending machines” sell other people’s stuff for me, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s crazy, and I didn’t think it would work, but I tried it anyway.

And y’know what? It worked!

That’s why I haven’t had a day job in over a decade- I’m FREE to do what I want.

So really, I’m a “full-time” whatever I want.


A full-time actor, full-time Author, Full-Time Father… WHATEVER I WANT.

A few years ago, I wrote a book for actors to teach them how to do it too, but since other kinds of people wanted to know, I did a live webinar to teach people.

The video is below- It’s about an hour, so maybe you should take notes.

The coolest part though?

It’s actually ON my blog!


“How I Blogged Myself To A Full-Time Income!”

(Press Play, and go FULLSCREEN)


“There are 2 kinds of people in the world- those who get bills in the mail, and those who GET CHECKS in the mail.

Which do YOU want to be?”

I decided a long time ago that I couldn’t have the life I wanted if someone else controlled my money and my time.

So, I chose to learn to make money without trading time for it.

That may sound impossible at first, but if you think about a vending machine, when you buy something from it, the owner made money even though they weren’t there.

I built my blog on MY time- when I wanted to.

You’ll learn how to create “Online Vending Machines”, and a BLOG can be one.

But when you say that, a lot of people think that you make money from a blog just with ads- that’s the AMATEUR way to do it, and you have to create OCEANS of traffic to make any money.

In this video, I show you how to make a full-time income with a blog- so you can be free to audition, shoot, perform, parent, play, write, travel, or SLEEP (unless you’re a parent)!

I normally do $2,000 mastermind sessions where I teach people how to do what I do, and I have great testimonials from very happy people.

But instead of $2,000 masterminds, I have completely changed what I’m doing, and it will be to YOUR advantage, Enjoy the video above, takes notes! 


By the way, this is a secret.

5 Steps To Bones Rodriguez Like A Pro!

This might seem silly, but even I have to take these steps to Bones Rodriguez when I just feel like John Rodriguez…

See, most people don’t know that my real name is John Christopher Rodriguez, and whereas I like that guy well enough, I REALLY like Bones Rodriguez.

He’s a fiction.

He’s a character that I play as often as I can.

I CHOOSE to play him.

So, when I’m really not feeling the part, I do what every actor does- I remember my motivation, my backstory, and remember exactly WHO he is… in these steps:

1- Bones Rodriguez chooses to have fun.

It doesn’t mean that he tosses away responsibility or sloughs off work- it means that he CHOOSES to have fun doing whatever it is that is being done. The way I become Bones when this is needed is to put a big smile on my face, and see it from the SMILE’s perspective.

2- Bones Rodriguez chooses to make a good story- Since he’s a fiction, and fiction always needs a hero, Bones Rodriguez behaves like the hero in the story: Instead of quietly sitting by while someone is being bullied on the train, Bones Rodriguez chooses to interrupt whatever is happening- with a smile, and a joke… because that’s fun.

3- Bones Rodriguez is courageous- he might be nervous about something, scared about something, but weighs the options and will often choose to do the thing he’s scared of anyway…. With a good story, and a smile.

4- Bones Rodriguez likes people- he realizes that everyone always does what they think is right according to their perspective, and remembers what it feels like when no one understands his perspective. So he consciously and purposely looks from yours. With a smile… because it’s fun to see life from someone else’s perspective!

5- Bones Rodriguez is aware that he is a fiction… so it’s difficult to take himself too seriously.

I tell people all the time that I am just playing a character, and I get these traits by listening to self-help audios and reading personal development books a lot.

That’s why I have a subscription to The Inner Circle audio library. I have learned a ton, continue to, and I highly recommend that other people do also.


2 Inspiring Creating The Person You Want To Be Videos

There are times I really like the person I choose to be. This is one of those times, and being conscious that you can MAKE that choice is half the journey! Who are YOU choosing to be today?
  1. Choosing To BE The Fiction

    So, again, I only made this video to remind myself that we can all choose at any moment who we want to be.
  2. Extreme Homeless Man Makeover!

    These guys decided to make a video, and do something nice. I wonder how the homeless guy is doing now? I often have fantasies about creating businesses for the homeless, and one of these days I’ll get around to it!
Y’know, we all get to choose who we want to be, and blogging is a way for us to demonstrate that. Most people are running around doing “work” just so they can pay bills, but what if you could earn money just be discussing your passion? Wouldn’t THAT be better? Click the link for more info.
