My NFT Experiment – Part Deux

A little over a month ago, I decided to dive into the NFT space. NFTs (or Non Fungible Tokens) are a popular new trend that allow creators to monetize digital products in interesting new ways. As an author / publisher / creator / online business owner in the education and publishing space, I think there’s “something here” when it comes to NFTs. What that “something”...

But Especially Courage…

“The Tale of Despereaux” is a story about a mouse who never learned to be afraid. That’s a problem, you see, because mice are supposed to be fearful. Call it a social-cultural self-defense mechanism, perhaps the idea being that scared mice can better avoid danger, the point is, Despereaux was anything but. Because of this, from the moment of his birth, Despereaux’s natural...

My Home Office Setup for Audio and Video Teleconferencing, Podcasting, and Livestreaming

Spending all day on video and audio calls now that you’re “remote” and working from your new home office and want to look like a pro, but don’t know where to start? Here’s how to get up and running today and look and sound like a pro for as little as $300 (even if you’re brand new to this whole online business world). Someone recently asked me about my video...

Information is overrated (and how people actually learn)

About a month ago, I undertook a new home project renovation: -> Update the closet near the front hall. I wish I had a ‘before the project began’ picture (note to self: do this from now on), but in a nutshell: it was an empty closet with a coat hanger and a wobbly top shelf.

How to think like an entrepreneur

If entrepreneurship is the process by which value is created where less (or none) existed before, then the entrepreneur is the person who initiates and leads this value-creation process. Here’s how it works: When new value is created, the customer receives some portion of this value. It could be faster speeds. More storage. An improved or refined UI/UX. You get the point. At the same time...

The Pareto Principle: How to Spend The Most Important 20% of Your Time

In 1896, Vilfredo Pareto published a paper titled “Cours d’économie politique.” The paper shared Pareto’s research on Italian land ownership, which showed that 80% of the land was owned by 20% of the people. Expanding on his original research, Pareto discovered that this distribution, what has become known as the Pareto Principle (further popularized by Richard Koch in “The...

Stop living life on hard mode

Today marks the release of “The Sober Entrepreneur.” “The Sober Entrepreneur” is the latest book from Insurgent Publishing, and while I’m excited the book is finally out there in the real world (paperback and digital) for people to read, share, and spread… I might be more excited by the prospect that this book exists at all. Because in all honesty, it probably...
