Don’t Be Like Michael

Michael saw a webinar with some internet marketing gurus who were talking about all the money they allegedly make with their Kindle empires.   Michael thought he would do the same thing and would have 5 figures a month in passive income in no time.   What the gurus didn’t say in their video training […]

What I Learned Working for “Love Offerings” & “Competitive Pricing”

TL;DR: I ain’t doing it ever again. I’ve said it before and I’ll repeat it now: Many authors under price their books. A few over price their books to the extreme, but I find it’s the former I encounter the most. But it’s not just authors. Freelancers and service providers are similarly tempted to offer their […]
