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.

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.

How to Overcome Resistance

How to Overcome Resistance

I’m going to tell you how to overcome resistance.

Are you ready?  Are you sure?

If you want to extinguish resistance from your life have a baby.

Babies don’t care that you are shy around strangers.

They just want to eat.

Babies don’t care that you think if you start a business, any business, people you don’t know (and some you do) will laugh at you and tell you that there is no way it will work.

BLB Nonfiction Reading List - The Second Machine Age

BLB Nonfiction Reading List – The Second Machine Age

I just read an interesting post over at Bookriot that discussed video bloggers (or vloggers, for you hipsters) that don’t just talk about YA Fiction.

The article listed vloggers who covered other areas of fiction, but interestingly nonfiction hardly came up and when it did it was in the comments section.

To rectify this troubling oversight I’ve decided to share books from my current nonfiction…
