How You Spend Your Day

Some days this is how I feel… How about You? Truth is, I don’t think there is a person alive who doesn’t get distracted with one emergency or another. If there is someone who can work through their entire day without another person coming to them with a project on which they need their help, […]

Attention! This blog post will make you money

Profiting from Info Products

I am in the midst of reading a new book called “The Six-Figure Second Income” by David Lindahl and Jonathan Rozek, and I’m really enjoying it.  I just finished chapter 3: “How to create content cheaply and easily.” In Stage 3 of this chapter, the authors outline over 40 different ways content can formatted for […]
