Every new project or career starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets hard and less fun, until it hits a low point - and at that point you have to figure out if you´re in a dip or at a dead-end. THE DIP is the very first book to provide a look at how the market expects you to quit and what to do about it. A New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestseller In this iconic bestseller, popular business blogger and bestselling author Seth Godin proves that winners are really just the best quitters. Godin shows that winners quit fast, quit often, and quit without guilt-until they commit to beating the right Dip. Every new project (or job, or hobby, or company) starts out fun?then gets really hard, and not much fun at all. You might be in a Dip-a temporary setback that will get better if you keep pushing. But maybe it´s really a Cul-de-Sac-a total dead end. What really sets superstars apart is the ability to tell the two apart. Winners seek out the Dip. They realize that the bigger the barrier, the bigger the reward for getting past it. If you can beat the Dip to be the best, you´ll earn profits, glory, and long-term security. Whether you´re an intern or a CEO, this fun little book will help you figure out if you´re in a Dip that´s worthy of your time, effort, and talents. The old saying is wrong-winners do quit, and quitters do win.

Go beyond lame blogging books with this step-by-step into nine proven systems to make money blogging. I spent years wanting to start a blog. I hated my job and knew I didn´t want to spend a third of my day miserable...but looking through blogging books, all I found were generic strategies and false promises. They all promised huge income but none really told me how much bloggers make or how to make money online. I said screw it and started my blogs anyway in 2014. I quit my job and spent 60+ hours a week building my sites and learning how to make money blogging. You know what, it paid off. I doubled my monthly income last year and now make more than 85% of bloggers. That´s in just two years of blogging and I make money from seven different income sources every month. The nine ways to make money I detail in this book helped me grow my income to over $5,000 a month. More than a work from home reference, each chapter is a step-by-step in getting started and maximizing your income from each source. Some of the strategies to make money are completely passive once you set them up. Others will take more work but can make thousands a month. The one thing they have in common...they all work! This isn´t just another generic blogging book, covering everything from starting a blog to building traffic and then offering a side-note on a few ways to make money. You can find that anywhere. Type ´´start a blog´´ in Google and you´ll find thousands of articles on how to set up your site but none of them tell you exactly how to make money. Believe me, I tried and had to learn the hard way. This book is 100 percent dedicated to giving you the tools that make money on websites. I´m not promising you a get rich quick scheme or a way to make money online without doing any work. What I am promising is a complete guide on making money blogging, from strategies that will start making money today to the ones that make the most money. 1. Language: English.

Imagine a job where you could get paid to share your opinions about things that you´re passionate about. A job that you can do from your own home, on completely your own hours, that takes almost nothing in the way of upfront financial investment. For many people, that job is blogging. It´s no wonder that close to 1% of American adults make at least a portion of their living by blogging. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, about two million people profit from blogging each year in America. Of those, about a quarter (452,000 people) use blogging as their primary source of income. If you want to become a blogging success story, this information is both uplifting and depressing. It is possible to make money blogging; lots of people are already doing it. But like with other creative professions like actors and musicians, the famous celebrities earning millions of dollars are far outnumbered by the people who don´t make enough to quit their day jobs. I won´t lie and say it´s easy making your living as a blogger, but it is true that anyone can do it, so long as you have a subject you´re passionate about and enough dedication to stay the course. Each chapter in this book focuses on a different element of blogging, from setting up your domain name to diversifying your income streams. At the end of each chapter, you´ll find some wisdom from a person who started at nothing and has found success through blogging. But while blogging is a possible profit opportunity for anyone, let´s first clear up some popular misconceptions about blogging. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Shelton.

The deeply personal story of how award-winning personal finance blogger Elizabeth Willard Thames abandoned a successful career in the city and embraced frugality to create a more meaningful, purpose-driven life and retire to a homestead in the Vermont woods at age 32 with her husband and daughter. In 2014, Elizabeth and Nate Thames were conventional 9-5 young urban professionals. But the couple had a dream to become modern-day homesteaders in rural Vermont. Determined to retire as early as possible in order to start living each day - as opposed to wishing time away working for the weekends - they enacted a plan to save an enormous amount of money: well over 70 percent of their joint take-home pay. Dubbing themselves the Frugalwoods, Elizabeth began documenting their unconventional frugality and the resulting wholesale lifestyle transformation on their eponymous blog. In less than three years, Elizabeth and Nate reached their goal. Today, they are financially independent and living out their dream on a 66 acre homestead in the woods of rural Vermont with their young daughter. While frugality makes their lifestyle possible, it´s also what brings them peace and genuine happiness. They don´t stress out about impressing people with their material possessions, buying the latest gadgets, or keeping up with any Joneses. In the process, Elizabeth discovered the self-confidence and liberation that stems from disavowing our culture´s promise that we can buy our way to ´´the good life´´. Elizabeth unlocked the freedom of a life no longer beholden to the clarion call to consume ever-more products at ever-higher sums. Meet the Frugalwoods is the intriguing story of how Elizabeth and Nate realized that the mainstream path wasn´t for them, crafted a lifestyle of sustainable frugality, and reached financial independence at age 32. While not everyone wants to live in the woods or quit their jobs, many of us want to have more control over our time 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ann Marie Gideon.

A growing number of YouTubers are scoring six-to-seven-figure paychecks, studio development deals, A-list Hollywood agents, book and record deals, and more because they´ve harnessed the power of web video production, distribution, and monetization. Comedian-gamer Felix Kjellberg (aka PewDiePie) launched the most subscribed to YouTube channel of all time and made $7.4 million in 2014 for his expletive-filled video game commentaries. Not too shabby for someone who quit college and sold hot dogs to afford to buy a computer. Actress-writer Awkward Black Girl Issa Rae was working odd jobs and contemplating business school when her web show went viral. What followed was a Shorty Award, a development deal with HBO, and representation by United Talent Agency. Dissed by traditional media, hip hop violinist Lindsey Stirling found a following via YouTube, racked up hundreds of millions of views, a deal with Lady Gaga´s manager, a sold-out European tour, and an album that debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Former substitute teacher Harley Morenstein (ask Epic Meal Time) racked up over 800 million views, a partnership with Taco Bell Canada, and a TV show on A+E-owned FYI. Oh, and the Sauce Boss stars in Kevin Smith´s 2016 release Moose Jaws and has an estimated net worth of $6 million. Video blogger Jenna Marbles signed with CAA, got her own Madame Tussauds wax figure, and even has her own line of dog toys. She´s accrued nearly two billion video views and has more Instagram friends than Oprah Winfrey. Civilians are getting paid to create web video content, while iconic brands like Toyota, Lionsgate, and Macy´s are shelling out big bucks for other people´s videos. What makes those videos better than yours? Or are they? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jennifer Dorr. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/085584/bk_acx0_085584_sample.mp3.
