First is the content. If I find a blog that stays on my RSS list, it has to have content that is relevent, fresh and actionable. I’m not just a warm and fuzzy kind of guy. I’m a “show me the money”, “where’s the beef” kind of reader.
Second is the people who write them. They are real people like you and me and they want to help people. They actually reply to e-mails! Check out their sites and read their stories that lead them to write the blogs. Reading stories like theirs inspires me and keeps me reaching for my goals.
The third thing is that they share a common theme that has become a goal of mine. When I was out of work for the second time in 18 months, I had some free-time to hang out at Barnes and Chernobyl (that’s what my 12-year-old son and I call B&N).
Being out of work and not wanting to spend money to actually buy any books, I would read a chapter or two each time I visited the store. One of the books I read was “The Four Hour Work Week” by Tim Ferriss.
That is where I learned that I could escape the 9-5 and generate passive income through inventing. I already had six patents but employment agreements meant that the patents belonged to my employer. Now had a plan to invent my way out of the rat race.
So now without further adieu; here are a couple of my new favorite blogs:
Ladies First – Maren Kate is the dynamo behind Escaping the 9 to 5.com I don’t know how she’s able to write so much. Her blog is chock full of great tips for entrepreneurs and social networking. She even started an on-line class called Start-up School.
Next up is Pat Flynn – The man, the myth, the legend. The author of Smart Passive Income. It was Pat who gave me the tools to write my first eBook. Download his FREE eBook guide that will answer some of the real nuts and bolts kind of questions you run into when writing an eBook. It’s a great read and did I mention it’s free!
Pat has lots of videos, podcasts, and so much more stuff I have not been able to even scratch the surface.
More on my upcoming eBook.
With the tips I learned from Pat, I was able to finally get the missing pieces to get my eBook off the ground. The inventing eBook is tittle, “From Ideas to Profits: The essential guide for beginning inventors”. Here is a sneak peak of the cover. It will be very affordable because my goal in to help others reach their dreams and go from inspiration to innovation.
