One of the books I’ve been recommending to friends, family, and colleague is The Six Figure Second Income: How To Start and Grow a Successful Online Business without Quitting Your Day Job, by David Lindahl and Jonathan Rozek. It’s a great guide for how to make money on the Web. It’s for anybody who wants to make a living in today’s digital economy, or turn their passions and talent into profit.
Learn how to make more money by changing your mindset and expanding your capabilities. Make more money by thinking in terms of an hourly rate, growing your skills, and flowing more value.
