Interview with an Entrepreneur

By T on poverty101.net

A great example of using something that happened to the writer in everyday life, and turning it into a message. But it avoids the pitfall of laboring the point. Produces great imagery for me.

 

The Definitive Guide to Achieving Your Dreams

by Glen on pluginid

Deep and thoughtful article extolling the virtue of visualization as a method to achieving success, with many other good pointers.

 

Why I Quit Qwitter

Thoughtful post reflecting Christine’s changing views about Twitter over time as she comes to terms with the best way to make use of the service

 

Yanik Silver Underground Event

by Michael Dunlop on retireat21

Just a great story! Michael is such a young guy to have been able to travel to the event, and his enthusiasm comes through in the post. He’s really quite focused on his future in the industry.

Shockingly personal and thought provoking post. One that stopped me dead.

 

Is Your Tribe Holding you Down?

Brilliant post, managing to be both controversial and amusing at the same time. It sparked a huge comments debate which was as interesting as the original post.

 

How to Dominate Your Niche

by Brian Clark on copyblogger

This goes so much deeper into the niche (!) than most of the writing on this topic. As always with Brian, fabulous writing – I read his stuff even when the topic doesn’t interest me.

 

Visa Black Card Unboxing

by Jeremy Schoemaker on shoemoney

This will appeal to the tiny part of you that wishes you could develop more of a “Fuck you” attitude to the rest of the world. Jeremy has that attitude in spades, and you can see it all through this video, from the fact the he didn’t reshoot when he couldn’t open the box, to the final words he says to camera.

 

How to Master the Inner Game of Business and Life

by Yaro Starak on entrepreneurs-journey

Long post and you may need to read it twice, but as usual you’ll find yourself nodding at the points Yaro makes. I especially love the conversation he has with his own “awareness”.

 

The Panhandler’s Secret

by Seth Godin on sethsblog

Classic Seth – short, spare, nothing wasted, but you end up thinking about the post for hours.
