Reader Question Round-Up: Upwork, Scaling, and Taking a Big Margin
After my hiatus, I’m back with my fourth consecutive week of content. This time, it’s another reader question round-up, video edition.
I’m going to continue with the theme from last time, which is to use round-up posts to do picks and the digests that I’d been doing historically. I’d also like to encourage anyone to ask me questions because, as I’ve mentioned a few times now, I’m going to let your questions drive the majority of my content going forward.
They can be questions about anything you’d like, really. But my main focus is going to be on topics related to software careers and helping you understand the business of automation.
You can fire questions at me in the comments on the blog, Twitter, comments on Youtube, or really wherever you want. Though, if anyone’s interested in proposing sort of a more effective or efficient way for me to get questions, I’m interested to hear it.
- If you’ve never had occasion to check it out, I’d give the Tropical MBA podcast a listen. The name gives a different impression of it than what it really is, with a kind of “too good to be true vibe.” It’s actually a lot of practical advice for digital entrepreneurs, with a bit of a location-independent flavoring.
- My wife and I have been watching this series of Youtube videos called “Pitch Meeting.” If you like snarky humor pointing out plot holes, you’ll like these.
- We spent the weekend in Cincinnati, and one of the things we did there was pop in for a little casual axe throwing. Yes, there’s a place called Urban Axes where you learn to throw axes at targets and then have a lot of fun doing that for an hour or two. They have locations in various US cities, and it’s a LOT of fun, so check it out if there’s one near you.
- Here’s a live blog that I did a while back for Sonatype’s Nexus User Conference.
- This is a Q&A about SEO questions that I did as a Facebook Live for Hit Subscribe.
- We recorded a freelancers show about breaking the cycle of indefinite/open-ended engagements.
- And, if you have any interest in setting up your blog for Amazon affiliate marketing, I recorded a video on how to do that.
