    Stop reading about swimming and jump in the damn pool!

    I've said this over and over here. At some point, you have to STOP reading about swimming, and just jump in the pool. I found this great tweet on Twitter that summarizes the importance of reading, but also on following up reading with a dive into the pool. In today's culture, ACCESS TO...

    Started my first LLC - From play-faking to taking action.

    I've spent the past year dreaming of a Fastlane and taking small steps towards making it happen. I read Millionaire Fastlane, then listened to MJ's other two books on Audible. I've spent the past 6 months listening to books on tape during my commute each day to work. It's been primarily a mix...

    Reading Habits, suggestions?

    So I was wondering what are your reading habits? In the past I absorbed as much information as possible from books, but now I am becoming selective and even want to have a restriction of maximum books I should read during the year, focusing on application of whatever I am reading and thinking...
