Just read The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement.

Saw this at Barnes and Noble, the novel itself looks good but that cover hurts my eyes. May go ahead and pick up the audiobook if there's a narration already.

Reading Cashvertising by Drew Eric Whitman.

Finding this extremely informative and I am only 20% into the book. It's definitely changing my thought process on marketing to target markets.


Listening to Platform Revolution.

So far so good. Only an half hour into the book but it seems like it's going to be useful.

Just finished reading Unscripted. It was a really great book that is motivational, tells you the steps to start taking action, and to me is like the bible of entrepreneurship. Looking for a new book to read during my train ride to work. (still slowlane as F*ck, but am trying to start a business in my spare time)

A worthy Robert Greene book. The hard copy doesn't look like much and the formatting is cheap, but heard through audible it rings through as the genuine article.


About a fifth of the way through.
As someone that listens to Unscripted on repeat, this book is more relaxed though ellsberg brings in a lot of good anecdotes and interviews.

Last couple of months I read the following books: atomic habits by James Clear because MJ recommended it. Very good one. Will read it again. I also completed never split the difference which is a book about negotiating written by a hostage negotiator. To take a small break from entrepreneur books I read “sapiens” which I love! And another very interesting one was hacking Darwin. Right now i’m back to business and Started zero to one. Thinking about buying 10x but for some reason I’m doubting that it will be of great value. As the core principle is very clear and simple.

What I like about this book is that it really highlights the aspect of putting the customer first and foremost in business endeavors. Looking at everything from their perspective. The author owned and operated the largest psychiatry practice in New York and was a self-made multimillionaire. It talks a lot about the science of consciousness as well and how it relates to a successful business and life. Highly recommend it.

Does the book say anything about the source of the book? Dr. Hawkins died in 2012.

I haven't seen many resources recommended here on creating white papers.
My recent Upwork gig was polishing a white paper.

Tough job, as you need to organize data, cut out crap and not be salesy.

I had to run a few revisions on the project as I was still green to it.

Then I found a website called That White Paper Guy, by Gordon Graham. He also wrote a book on the subject called White Papers for Dummies.

I used to worry that the Dummies series was too basic.

I was wrong.

It explained LOTS about where white papers can work well for which sales processes, its evolution through the times, and how to decide WHAT KIND of white paper you are looking to make (he describes them in terms of 'flavours'), and how to create that.

A backgrounder? A product specs? Combination of both?

Plus, Graham's website has some sample white papers to look at as well.
They seem to be on technologies long obsolete, but the concepts and formatting are still evergreen.

Currently listening to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and man did I underestimate it.

The clickbait title was a huge no-no for me for a long time but both the content and how it is narrated really resonates well with me.

This one I will relisten to digest it better after I've finished it

Finally got my hard copy of unscripted in, between reading and listening to it I have almost the entire book memorized.

Why the f*** would you read so many books instead of selling fidget spinners on street corners and TAKING ACTION like a real hustler siddharhtha?
Because I am trapped in an office for a good amount of time and have a Fortune of time to spend listening to audible books.
At the moment I only have about 2 hours a day (waking up at 4am) to work on my business and plying myself to copywriting in hopes of escaping and gaining more time. Audio books are a way for me to fight back
No one is perfect, everybody does what they can do to do what they can; I'm just throwing in extra ingredients as I'm prepping my launchpad.

Atomic habits.

Unscripted.

And to relax...El ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quijote de La Mancha from Miguel de Cervantes. I love bursting in to laugh while reading it.
