The 4 hour work week – March’s Book of the Month

The 4 hour work week – Timothy Ferris This was a tough one to include or not. I really can’t stand the guy or his writing style but a lot of what he says is good advice. I’ve read this and the 4 hour body and am taking a break before reading the 4 hour chef. I think if you read one of his books a year, that’s plenty 🙂...

The Innovators – February’s Book of the Month

The Innovators is a historical portrayal of the digital revolution. It starts at Ada Lovelace the daughter of Lord Byron who is credited with the first concept of a computer programme and goes all the way up to 2014.

Pics From Affiliate Summit West 2015

Some snapshots from ASW15 Meet market, people doing the rounds.

Arriving into the strip on the Deuce with a blazer attached to a backpack. You walk a lot in Vegas without realizing it. Which is just as well because this was like a fried...
