Tim Ferriss, The 4 Hour Workweek And Creating Your Muse..Oh, Yeah and FREE BOOKS

Profit Consultant 4hwwIf you have not read the 4 Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss, you should.   Really every business owner should, as well as anyone who wants more time in their life.  It is that good.

The reason why I am posting this is I have had some interesting conversations recently about it.  The book actually helped launch my current business model that I used in my businesses several years ago. Which is saying quite a bit about a book.

Because of the book, I started www.YakWrite.com which is my Virtual Assistant and Transcription Service and in turn, through the Butterfly Effect,  got me to where I am today.  In a way, 21to21.com would probably not be here without the book either.  Kind of cool, now that I think about it.

Well, after the original 4 Hour Workweek book came out, I decided to write about my trials and tribulations of setting up my Muse and I wrote my own book.  A Muse is basically an automated business that virtually runs itself.

This brings me to the fact that I have been working on a rewrite of my book and am going to make it available next week.  It is all about the hard won and funny lessons  of actually implementing a 4 Hour Workweek.  It also contains the Blueprint of resources and shortcuts to creating a Muse.

The Internet is changing very, very fast these days and things that worked last month will not work this month.  Because of this  I am going to make my book virtual, so I can constantly update it.  Plus, I can put videos, tutorials and links to the resources you need to get your Muse up and running.

12 Website Rules To Make You More Money

money-in-hand12 Website Rules To Make You More Money

OK, you can start laughing now if you like, but I want to talk about some site design basics.  If you look at this site, I am currently breaking about 5 out of the 10 Website rules and I just want to let you know that I am aware of that and I am in the process of changing them this week.  Actually this site will go from kind of what not to do, to what to do. I mean seriously, this is site is at least a 50% poster child for what not to do on a site and the other 50% is what to do on a site.  And ultimately that is OK, because it happens with many people that are busy running their business. Perhaps this even happened with you.

The short reason why is that in spite of this site, I have been so busy I have not had time to come back and fix it.  Just goes to show you that Rule number ONE trumps all of the other rules though.

Well, I am going to list the Rules here and then will go over each in a separate post.   Some of these you may find a bit counterintuitive and as I said, I have not followed all of them on this sight but will do so over the next few weeks or so and show you the how and why while doing it.

Well let”s get started here.

The Top 12 Website Rules To Make More Money

  1. Get your site up and make it public.  Well, while this might seem like a no brainer but, even and ugly website that people can find is better than no website at all.   Seriously with over 60% of businesses in the US not having any Web presence whatsoever, this is kind of funny but on the other hand not.
