4 Hour Work Week

June 16, 2008

At a blogger MeetUp last week, the book 4 Hour work Week by Tim Ferriss came up as a must read. I don't know if I would call it that. The concept of paring everything down and outsourcing everything you can is clever, but for most folks it is unrealistic.

For people looking to make a fast dime by leveraging as many other folks as possible, then, yeah, go read the book.

Job Hunting

June 16, 2008

As unemployment rises (along with layoffs) and fewer jobs are being created, people need help job hunting. I get hit up for help all the time. Success Secret #4: Build It Before You Need It.

40 Hour Work Week

July 16, 2008

I don't know about you but a 4 Hour Work Week seems unlikely, but just a 40 hour one would be grand! Tim Ferriss wrote the book, 4 Hour Work Week, and gave a great 45 minute summary of the book's principles at SXSW 2007 (here). David Seah has an exhaustive review of the principles of the book here. I'm just focused on his outsourcing.

And the BK Starts

July 30, 2008

Profits tumbling. Stock market in disarray. Real estate is ugly. And now Mervyns files for Chapter 11. Also, today, Bennigan's (and its sister Steak N Ale) filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy (which means liquidation); all company-owned restaurants closed.

Interesting blogs

August 4, 2008

apparently, Carl Icahn has a well-read blog. Probably due to his abuse of companies and people wondering where the next train wreck will be (like MOTO and Yahoo). In his latest post, Carl promises not to show up at the Yahoo! annual meeting. He thinks he would turn it into a media circus.

People Don't Understand Me

August 7, 2008

So a friend of mine sends me some emails about current events. "Here's something to blog about." I reply with the URL to my post about it that is up already. In the course of the email conversation, I realize he has no idea what I am talking about. His reply is below:

What I wrote: The FCC made a ruling on Comcast's network management (or P2P traffic interference).

Obama-Biden

August 25, 2008

Obama is probably the candidate with the most tech-savvy staff. Ron Paul was better, but unfortunately for the US, he is not running any more. Instead we again have two choices that make me weep. How did 20+ candidates come down to just these 2?

Startup Success book

August 28, 2008

So I get a marketing newsletter today and it has an ad/referral to a new book about Startup Success. The author has been CEO of 2 companies -- neither of which has been a success. One filed for bankruptcy and one has burned through millions in investment money with little to show for it. In fact, he was removed from his position at the second company.
