The Incredible Value of Recognition (and How You Can Keep It Going All Year Long)

A few years ago, I worked as an editor for a small publishing house. To the employees' chagrin, the owners knew nothing about management—including the critical role of lifting up their team. I collaborated with some talented people at that company—creative writers,...

The Limitless Profit of Generosity

As a young boy, I remember watching a television show called, “Circle Square.” It was something like a Christian-values version of Sesame Street—with a much catchier theme song. One of the biggest lessons the strange-looking Circle Square puppets taught me was to give...

In Case You Missed Bitcoin’s Epic Rise…

Over the weekend in Denver, my friends and I hosted an annual charity event—a sort of business and investment bootcamp that ended with around $100,000 worth of toys being donated to kids in low-income families. It was a lot of fun, and I really want to thank the...

The founder of New York-based marketing agency Taco, Chirag Kulkarni is, by his own admission, something of an “accidental” marketing specialist. Curiosity is what vaulted him into the SEO/content realm, which then grew a business serving clients like...

5 Steps To Making First 100 Sales Online

Feels so good to have this... ...I've enjoyed a week off out on the farm, in Christmas-like weather, resting up and writing, getting ready for my whirlwind travel schedule to end the year. It starts with a trip to Tokyo next week, followed by a trip to Florida, then...

Shame on Wal-Mart?

Forget that Wal-Mart employs 1.3 million people in the U.S. alone. Forget that it saves consumers billions of dollars each year on retail purchases. Forget that its employees, on average, earn about double the minimum wage. The word from some disgruntled employees is that Wal-Mart doesn’t treat its employees “fairly” – whatever that’s supposed to mean.

Dear ETR: Should I stay in school or start a business?

I am a student currently attending university. Between school and my job, I have found very little free time to dedicate to the things that I really see as beneficial to my future. The question is, with the doom and gloom market we are in, coupled with the constantly diminishing value of a college education (even from a private university), would it not be better to focus on starting a business now?

Simple Investing Works Best

The longer I invest, the more I realize that simple investing works best. The fewer rules you have, the better.

How to Be More Productive

Pick Up The Pieces of Your Broken Dream

A week ago, I received a package I'd been waiting for. The feature-length movie I had co-written, co-directed, and co-produced last summer had been edited. A rough cut was finally ready for my review. You might imagine I'd rush home to watch it, anxious as I was to...

Live The Second Half Of Your Life Better

I turned 50 this year. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. My body didn't disintegrate. My mind still makes the roll call. It has been the occasion of some trifling contemplation. At 50, you are at the crest of your life. That means you can, for the...
