Nonfiction Books Reading List July 2014 - The Books I Read to Get Ahead

Nonfiction Books Reading List July 2014 – The Books I Read to Get Ahead

Quote about books and people from Charlie Tremendous Jones

These are the great nonfiction books I read in July.  Clearly most are tilted toward internet marketing and writing, which are two topics that have come to dominate my thinking recently.

Jeff Walker’s Launch was responsible for me finally setting up a newsletter.  Thank you Jeff!

That is the power of a great book read at the right time – action.  These books also helped me add to my arsenal of…

10 Great Business Books - August 2014

10 Great Business Books – August 2014

Hundreds of business books come out every month.

The hard part is knowing which are worth the time and money to read and buy and which are nothing more than extended magazine articles and vanity pieces.

I scour the internet every month looking for hints, reviews, recommendations and suggestions for books being released.  I then whittle that list down to 10 great business books to share with my…

Book Review - Podcast Launch

Book Review – Podcast Launch

John Lee Dumas - Podcast Launch

One of the great products of the internet has been the rise of the self-made internet millionaire.

Much like a Horatio Alger story, the internet millionaire embodies the hero’s struggle.

He or she is a good guy/girl who just wants to do right, but they find themselves in a tough spot.

It could be a bad boss, a job with no future or just a feeling of despair that the life they are living is not…

Bookleverage on YouTube!

Buggles song

I’m on a mission to spread the love of non-fiction far and wide.

And that is why Bookleverage is now on YouTube.

At least for me when I get on YouTube the only book commentary I see is about sexy vampires, a dystopian future with love-crossed teenagers or a combination of the two.

But not anymore nonfiction book lovers, because Bookleverage is on YouTube for good!

I’m going to start out with…

Little Fears

Emerson quote

So there I was, staring at the screen, thinking over my options.

Do I press OK and release the start of my dream to the world (or at least my Facebook friends) or do I move on and just accept the status quo?

It’s funny the little fears and the big tests that we all face as we struggle for success.  And what would seem to others as nothing, take on gigantic proportions in the minds of some.

I…

Just What the World Needs, Another Newsletter

Just What the World Needs, Another Newsletter

I’m in the process of putting together a bi-monthly newsletter.  Bi-monthly means twice a month.  And I only say that because like most people I wonder why people don’t just say twice a month.

But when you are talking about newsletters you have to say bi-monthly or the newsletter police send you a letter.

So why another newsletter?

As someone who pooh pooh’s society’s fascination with “surfing…

The Launch Checklist

For years I’ve thought about creating and selling an information product.

Today I started reading Jeff Walker’s Launch and had an idea.

What if I took every step he outlines for a successful product launch, wrote them out and as I complete them, blog about them.

I get a product launch under my belt and my blog readers get a first person account of what a product launch really looks and feels like.
