Tai Lopez: Scam Artist or Master Online Marketer?

Tai Lopez is an online marketer who became famous (or infamous, depending on who you ask) for showing up before seemingly EVERY YouTube video, as an interstitial ad, in his garage, pointing behind him at his books and Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and other six-figure automobiles. At one point he explains how he calls money “time units.” :-/ (more…)

The BEST Free, Invoicing Web App

I recently purchased a course on developing business videos. I plan on perfecting my craft and becoming a better videographer.

However – I stumbled on the best invoicing app I have ever laid eyes on, and best of all it’s FREE.

There are countless other invoicing apps, and they range from $10-$100+/month depending on your needs.

The site that I use (and they just came out with a mobile app as well) is WAVE.

These guys make the entire process so incredibly easy. You just set up a profile, you can connect payments via Stripe (a PayPal alternative) and  then you just create invoices, and send them to your customers through the app.

Your customers can then pay you via their invoice that they receive in the mail.

You also get to see if your customer viewed the invoice or not – and the best part is that when they pay you via Stripe, your invoices change themselves to “PAID”.

The site also lets you send reminders when people are late to pay their invoices, and it gives you a useful overview of your incoming and outgoing funds by the month.

I can’t recommend WAVE enough for it’s incredible invoicing capabilities. As a freelancer, I wouldn’t want to use anything else.

My Top 6 Free Productivity Apps That Have Changed My Work Life

I see about 10 new posts on productivity every day. I browse various blogs, reddit, and YouTube, and productivity is something that people just cannot wrap their heads around.

I’ve followed lots of productivity advice in my life, and I’ve had mixed results.

I’ve had periods where I’m “on fire” and I’ve had weeks where I felt like I accomplished nothing.

If you’re in a funk right now, I hope that using some of these tips will get you going again.

Instead of a generic productivity article where I tell you to “eat right, exercise, sleep enough, drink enough water, take 1 step forward, and be grateful…”

I’ll instead detail the apps that you can download today and have a tangible positive effect on your work life.

Like any app or trick or secret, it’s all about how you use the apps. Some apps won’t mesh with you, and some will boost your results. There are hundreds of options out there, these are just what have worked for me.

Leave a comment below the post if you’d like to add an app or tool that you use and love.

The Roost Stand – A Review

One blogger who I love to follow is Charles Ngo. He’s not only an expert mobile and dating marketer, but he’s a big supporter of keeping correct posture while working.

As a guy who works from home and sits nearly the entire day, his suggestions are targeted directly to someone like me.

One such suggestion recently was the “Roost Stand.”

You see, the problem with my posture is that I work on a laptop. So every day, around 3 or 4 pm, I start to feel my upper back tightening and getting sore, and it’s because I’m looking slightly downward. The roost stand attaches to your laptop to bring the screen to just below eye-level.

The Roost Stand comes in at around $80 after shipping.

I decided that $80 is about 2 visits to the chiropractor, and it’s way less than purchasing another monitor. More so, the Roost Stand is pretty cool looking, has a beautiful website design (an alteration of a Shopify template) and could make an immediate impact in my well-being, and sore back.

So I decided to buy a Roost Stand. I actually used Bitcoin. It was my first purchase using Bitcoin, so that was pretty cool.

Roost Stand Review:

The stand took some getting used to in the beginning. It took about 2 days until it started feeling more normal. I also had to buy a wireless keyboard, as my old wired one just wasn’t cutting it, and my wrists weren’t comfortable.

Before using the Roost Stand, my shoulders would start to ache at around 3 PM every day. It was like my body’s alarm clock – I knew it was 3 PM when my shoulders started to ache. That problem is now gone. For this alone, I feel like the Roost stand is worth it.

The compactness of the stand is another very cool thing. If I want to go work at a library or coffee shop with this stand, it can be folded and packed away. I can throw in my slim wireless keyboard and be good to go.

It clips in quite easily – I suggest starting with one corner of the laptop, and then following with the next corner.

All in all, I would give this stand a solid rating. Let’s call it an A-. I would like to be able to adjust the height of the screen. That’s one thing that maybe they can create in a future model. Reason being that every desk and chair height is not equal. So some people might want to adjust how high or low the screen is. (They have an adjustment based on screen size, but I would like to adjust more than that.)

Keep in mind that this stand does not work with all laptops. You will need to go visit their website and see if it fits your particular make and model.

Kopywriting Kourse by Neville Medhora – My Unbiased Review

I recently went through Neville Mehora’s ‘Kopywriting Kourse’ which, as far as I can tell, is still available on AppSumo.com.

I like the hand-written effect a lot, actually.

I like the hand-written effect a lot, actually.

I believe it was originally a $200 product, and it currently sells for $69. So maybe due to the fact that it’s a year or more old, it’s no longer price at more than $100.

So is this course worth 69 bucks?
