It’s vital for us as home workers, especially if we’re self-employed, to be able to sort through all the information we’re continually bombarded with, and find the quality stuff that will help us develop our skills and businesses. The best resources often come through recommendation, so here are three people doing great things whom you might find helpful for different reasons:
If you want good quality information about blogging and social media – Jeff Bullas is a reliable source of information on any subject you can think of. He writes his own material and also collects and provides links to the thought leaders, such as Mashable, so you won’t have to scour the net yourself. A good example is how he increased his Facebook page fans by 1000% in less than four weeks.
If you feel like you’re ploughing a lonely furrow and your family and friends don’t really understand your motivation – Chris Guillebeau is a writer and traveller whose site The Art of Non-Conformity is for ‘unconventional people doing remarkable things’. He writes about entrepreneurship, among other things, and always on hard-hitting subjects, such as what to do when you feel like giving up.
If you want to change a habit you feel is cramping your potential – over a period of two years Leo Babauta completely changed his life. Amongst other things, he gave up smoking, changed his diet and lost 65 pounds, started running, created 3 popular blogs and paid off his debt. This is how he began to get up earlier in the morning, something lots of us might be thinking about now that spring seems like a real possibility!
I’m always looking for more excellent resources, so please share your own favourites in the comments.
