This is Jon Morrow.

He’s made $10M+ writing online, but can’t move his body except his face.

Jon Morrow is the founder of Smart Blogger, a website dedicated to teaching blogging and writing 📝

Tim again…

Jon Morrow has Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

It means he lives in an electric wheelchair.

He’s not supposed to live a long time either.

Doctors said he will one day get a lung infection.

They were right.

He’s had pneumonia 16 times & didn’t die.


Jon got hit by a car going 85 mph in 2006.

His legs broke in 14 places.

He didn’t die (again).

Jon stayed in hospital for 3 months.

He realized he hated where his life was heading

So Jon did the unthinkable & quit his job.

Jon had big medical bills.

To save money he moved to Mexico 🇲🇽 and started blogging.

Tim adds…

This is wild because he couldn’t move his hands or arms.

He had to build a lip-operated mouse.

Jon worked on his blog from 8am-11pm daily. 

– Read
– Write
– Chat to other bloggers

That’s 15 hours per day of hard work, not knowing how it would turn out 🤯

But it turned out very well, with Jon earning $10+ million via blogging over the next several years.

Tim’s takeaway from Jon’s story…

Your first blog should suck.

– Your first 100 articles will be terrible
– Keep going beyond the initial failure

Jon’s first 3 blogs failed.

They helped him get good.

So don’t beat yourself up if you’re failing right now.

That’s the price you have to pay for eventual success 💪
