October 2016 Reading List

I dicked off a lot in September. Made a ton of cash the month before. Got lazy. Netflix binged on Narcos. Reminisced about the good ole’ days in Colombia. Mental masturbating reached new heights. Damn you, Airbnb.

P.S.: Let me know if you need price estimates on studio apartments in nearly every major city in the world. I know them now.

I made plans. Some I followed through on. Others fell through the cracks. But here I am. Disgust coursing through my veins as October rolls in. Focus is back. Drive coming on, too. It’s time to crank things up. Time to get focused, again.

October 2016 Reading List

With that in mind, the TV is going off. No more Netflix. Time to catch up on some learning. Time to get back to reading every single day. With that in mind, here are the books I plan to check out this month:

Web Copy That Sells by Maria Veloso

I grabbed this book after a few months back. I cracked it open for a week or so then forgot about it. It’s time to get back into it. I need to write better copy, especially as I plan to create my open information products in the future. So I plan to work through Web Copy That Sells before reading anything else this month.

Prometheus Rising by Robert Anton Wilson

I’d never heard of this book until I checked out Jon Anthony’s resource page. After reading his quick snippet about the book, I quickly bought it. No idea if it’ll be any good, but the idea of using your mind better appeals to me. I’ll write a full review on this one if it’s any good. While I have no expectations about the book, I’m quite curious about the contents of Prometheus Rising.

The TestShock Program by Christopher Walker

Hype on hype on hype. The copy for this guide was pretty damn good. Not to mention Anabolic Men is one hell of a resource for guys looking to improve their hormones. The TestShock Program is now a course, but I picked the guide up on Amazon awhile back on the cheap. Time to check it out and see if anything in TestShock seems legit.

The Art of the Deal / Think Big & Kick Ass / How to Get Rich 

I splurged on three of Donald Trump’s books a bit back. No matter your politics, Trump has been hustling on levels we can’t even imagine for over three decades. To say his business isn’t successful is just silly. I plan to check out three of his best books to get an insider’s view on how he operates. With the election in tow and voting creeping up on us, these should be some fun reads.

Where is this?

Selling 101 by Zig Ziglar

Not expecting much from Selling 101 by Zig Ziglar. I heard it was a decent sales guide and I grabbed it used on Amazon for dirt cheap. I’m half way into it, and most of the tips are for old school sales professionals, but there’s still some good info. Will put up a review of Selling 101 once I finish it.

October 2016 Reading List

Planning to finish seven books in a month is a lot for me, but I’m certain it won’t be an issue. With a potential surgery pending, I should have a decent chunk of free time on my hands. What are you reading this month? Let me kn0w in the comments. I’m always on the lookout for suggestions.

Awesome list! I have Web Copy That Sells on my own reading list. Looking forward to it. Also, I finished Sales 101 a couple weeks ago and while it’s not ideal for online stuff, it’s translatable. Chapters 6-10 were most valuable to me.

    Thanks for the tip! I’ll definitely pay closer attention to the chapters you mentioned.
