This note made me smile from Darius Foroux: “All my problems will be solved once I have a little bit more cash on hand.” Sorry to disappoint you, but that will never happen. As your bank account grows, your problems will too. As Profit First advises, as your income grows so will your expenses. Foroux […]
Jackson says in regard to his $4400/month expense burn: This wasn’t as big of a deal when revenue was high. I was able to pay my expenses, and still pay myself a good salary. But, just as Michalowicz predicted, when sales slowed down, my monthly costs weighed on me like never before. Michalowicz wrote Profit […]
From Austin Kleon: In the (perfect) movie adaptation, Hannibal calls Clarice on the phone, and he says it just a little differently: “The world’s more interesting with you in it.” This is important to remember all the time.

Here is a great illustrated guide to checking your Apple subscriptions from iOS. I didn’t have any I didn’t expect but I know my friend Jason recently did an audit of his recurring expenses and saved himself hundreds of dollars for the year. In my upcoming book The Freelancer’s Guide to Getting Started I have […]
You know I’m iOS first because I’ve said it a few times. Many of you have asked how I do it so I’ve been writing about it. Today you can read about how I shoot and edit videos with LumaFusion on my iPad Pro over on The Sweet Setup.
So about Sketchnoting: I like to call sketchnotes notes plus because they’re just like the notes you take now, with drawings, icons, and lettering added for emphasis. The addition of visual elements help you remember ideas more clearly and make note-taking more fun. Sketchnoting is all about being in the moment and relying on your […]
