You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life

Wow, I can’t even believe it’s happened.  I HAVE A NEW FAVORITE BOOK. It may actually be better than The Miracle Morning (even though The Miracle Mornings is STILL a must-read for everyone).

You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life is brilliant.  Jen Sincero actually makes self-improvement cool.

This book was so amazing that after I read it from the library, I actually purchased it just to have a hard copy to reference.

(And I’ve read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.  So I don’t own books.  But now I own this one.)

How to Supplement Your Blog Income with Hubpages

How to Supplement Your Blog Income with Hubpages

Third party sites like Hubpages often get a bad rap from bloggers.  After all, we’re all taught from the beginning that one of the most important aspects of managing a blog is owning and hosting your own domain.  

These sites, however, are totally misunderstood (and definitely under-utilized) by writers and bloggers.  I’ve been using Hubpages for longer than my blog’s existence and despite my blog’s success, I still head back to Hubpages to regularly publish material.  It is an important source of income that supplements what my blog is earning for me.

While the money is obviously important, there are other serious benefits to using Hubpages when you’re a blogger.

The Next Book You Have to Read: The Millionaire Next Door

The Millionaire Next Door, by Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko, had been on my list forever. I had pushed it off because I thought it would be similar to the various other “tips to become wealthy” books, but I was totally wrong.
