Thoughts on Writing More, Destiny, Growing Balls, the Dollar Shave Club, and Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today begins my new posting schedule! I’m excited because this finally means my posts are more consistent which is good for you and good for me! Mondays will consist of the Helpful Posts of the Week. They’ll consist of interesting, helpful things that I’ve found throughout the week. Expect around 5 helpful links, pictures, or anything else a week.

  • If you’re a writer, you’ll want to read this. They’re simple suggestions on how to increase the amount of words you write each day. I’m coming to terms with this, but I’ve realized that I’m becoming a writer. Between coming up with blog posts, writing copy for our business, communicating through e-mails, and other things, I write a lot of words each day! You will also do a lot of writing for your business; especially if you have an online business.
  • Another post from Chris Guillebeau. I’ve learned a great deal from him and will continue to. Check out his new post, On Destiny, Influence, and the Impossibility of Being Self-Taught. It’s awesome stuff!
  • “Our inward power, when it obeys nature, reacts to events by accommodating itself to what it faces – to what is possible. It needs no specific material. It pursues its own aims as circumstances allow; it turns obstacles into fuel. As a fire overwhelms what would have quenched a lamp. What’s thrown on top of the conflagration is absorbed, consumed by it – and makes it burn still higher.” – Marcus Aurelius. If this quote gets your juices flowing, check out Julien Smith’s new blog post, The Simple Guide to Growing Some @#$%ing Balls. TRULY inspiring stuff!
  • I’m a huge fan of StumbleUpon lately. I came across this company last week. It’s the Dollar Shave Club. If you want to see a great example of a great website, business plan, and marketing, be sure to check out the site. The video is hilarious and makes me want to do business with them. Can you create a video like theirs to entice customers to do business with you?

Hope this helps start an incredible week for you and your micro business!
