This week, it’s all about the freebies. Because who doesn’t love getting something super valuable at the reasonable cost of zero dollars?
With budget-savviness in mind, here’s what I’m reading, watching, listening to and doing this week.
Mariah Coz knows how to make money online. And not just a couple dollars — she’s earned millions by growing her online businesses, all without spending a dime on advertising.
In this article, she explains how she did it. She’s an inspiring entrepreneur, and it’s always fascinating to find out how successful leaders with devoted online tribes built their empires.
To Watch: #AskGaryVee Episode 185: Seth Godin on Thought Leaders, Psychics & The Future of the Internet
OK so any free advice from Seth Godin is awesome, and I really enjoyed watching him on this episode of Gary Vaynerchuk’s YouTube show (although Gary Vee’s energy overwhelms me!).
Did you know that Godin gave away his last book for FREE? (If you purchase one, he sends you two — so that you can share it with someone.) The book, What To Do When It’s Your Turn, is a must-read. Go get one for yourself — and your business bestie.
Your wits are free, right? Well good, because on this episode of Hack The Entrepreneur, Jon Nastor finds out how to use only your wits (ahem, writing) to build your personal brand and find the connections you need to build your business. And he learns it by interviewing Dorie Clark: author, professional speaker, branding expert, teacher at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, and an entrepreneur.
