My first free manifesto, The American Dream Is Dead (Long Live The American Dream!), is coming Monday! I’m excited and I’ve gotten some great feedback on the content already. AND the launch day article includes contributions from 20+ rock stars.
Shortest update in Saturday history so far. Sweeeeeeeet linkage …
Game Winners and Why You Should Always Want To Take The Shot by Kenny Eller
“You can’t be great without some sort of risk.” Kenny is a good friend of mine. Also, he’s very smart.
Living Self Employed: The Manual They Forgot To Give You by Glen Allsopp
Read it. :) Also, you must read the first few comments when you’re done with the article. ;)
7 Things That Suck About Being Vegetarian by Matt Frazier
I pretty much don’t agree with any of these. :) If you’ve read my Stress Free Vegan Travel article and other stuff I’ve written you know that. I especially don’t get the loss in joy of cooking. Veganism has made me absolutely love making my own food. In the beginning I would make elaborate meals from recipes (Veganomican is a great cook book), but now my diet is very simple and oh so tasty. I thought about writing a 7 Things That Rule About Being Vegan response article, but this will have to do instead.
If You Could Live Anywhere… by Laura Walker
Laura asks a fun question. If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Go there and answer. I’m interested in the responses as well!
So You Want To Become A Happiness Ninja? by Tammy Strobel
Tammy has been all over the place lately. New York Times, Today, MSNBC, Yahoo Finance … this article is a response to a common question from her massive new readership.
Also, Tammy is releasing a book called Smalltopia next week! Freedom Fighters: you’ll have an exclusive interview with Tammy in your inbox on Tuesday!
Also, also: I contributed to Smalltopia with an article called: How To Automate Your Business Growth With A Free E-mail Course. It’s on Page 110. :)
How To Live Anywhere: A Ridiculously Extraordinary Discussion with Cody McKibben
I’ve never mentioned this before, but if I had to think of the 3 people who inspired me to start my blog it would be: 1) Tim Ferriss 2) Chris Guillebeau and 3) Cody McKibben.
I started reading Cody’s blog some time around the end of 2008 or early 2009, about 6 months before I launched this site. I was fascinated by what he was doing and you can even see a tinge of domain name inspiration. Thrilling Heroics. Ridiculously Extraordinary. :)
When I was in Thailand we, unfortunately, were not able to meet up. But 4 months later here’s an interview! :)
So that’s it for this week. I leave Poland in a month and I don’t know what to do with myself. Wroclaw is a fantastic city and I hope the Hilton and all the other modern things being built here don’t ruin it. Why am I still talking ….
