It’s crazy how I let multiple weeks of “Reads of the WEEK” pile up into “Reads of the MONTH” or something.
Anyhoo, July has been a great month for me, my best month ever in the biz, and it might just push me into doing some sort of an income report though I never really liked to reveal stuff like this on a public blog.
I’m definitely going to be posting more on epicskillz with yet another new virtual assistant coming on board, hopefully this one lasts me at least 6 months so I can put more focus into rev-generating activities instead.
So there, let’s dive into the time machine and re-visit some brilliant posts I’ve read in the past couple of weeks.
Read this just for fun, gives you a better idea of how the common public looks at us like the shady bunch of online criminals we are, and what Pawel Reszka thinks about it.
Following which my hero Seth Godin shares his expert perspective on how to make money online, and the author of the great book Millionaire Fastlane talks about how to never work another day in your life with an ancient money system.
Glen Allsop writes a long-ass post about the future of blogging and I know I’ve got to read it and learn how to write epic posts like he does.
Sebastian Marshall’s post about the best productivity purchase of the last year made me go out to buy it immediately, so now I’m using the exact same thing and wonder why I’ve not heard about this sooner.
Rework is one of the best business books I’ve ever read, and now that 37 Signals are giving away another book of theirs for free, you can’t not download it, it’s called Getting Real.
Neil Gaiman gives an epic commencement speech, and while some parts were a little boring to me, I love how it ends:
And now go, make interesting mistakes. Make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules, live the world more interesting for your being here. Make. Good. Art.
Ever prolific Seth Godin appears yet again in multiple awesome posts, teaching mankind the aspect of raising money for your business, why we sometimes get stuck in analysis paralysis, and how an architect’s work is similar to what we do as internet business owners.
And finally, I’ve been reading Atlas Shrugged for the past couple days, so this post by Tim Feriss really struck a nerve about the extent that monopolies could go to, to ensure that newcomers never get to compete on a level playing ground, and how we could fight back.
