Entrepreneurship is a life-long learning journey.

Self-Development For Start-ups

If I have a chance to let you into my library, you'll definitely find one whole section of books dedicated to Business Development, Marketing, etc.
I find books very helpful - especially those that are well-written and at the same time executable.
I read and tried out many things in the course of two decades, discarded many fluffs and impractical ideas and techniques before consolidating the truly effective ones.

Courses for Start-ups

As I was trying to build my clientele, I wished there were someone I could go to for advice so that I didn't have to hit every roadblock there were in my path.
And even though I found many valuable information from books, the mining process a long one. It was.

Ultimately, I managed to acquire skills and develop tools that were unique to the service-based, bootstrap budget business I was running as a start-up.
Rather than trying to remember everything I've collected. I condensed and documented them.

You'll find below courses that I've created over time. Documents containing techniques for business running. I could have written a lot more but perhaps next time.
No, these weren't produced for the sake of publishing, they were essentially tools I needed to make my life easier and to become more effcient at what I was doing.

They can be yours for a very insignificant sum each - considering the time spent in creating them. Priced at the price of a decent dinner ($100 each), a tiny investment for any business, these low-cost PDF courses are fantastic investments for your business and personal development.

The Translator's Little Handbook

Have you decided to be a freelance translator? Bravo! Translators are already a rare breed. And freelancers who survive through the startup years are even rarer! Being a startup sounds cool but if you're starting up alone, the learning curve is steep. I know it for a fact, because I've been there. This is why I've written this little handbook for you. Use it as a compass for your freelance journey, use it as a template, it can even inspire you if you allow it to.

Turning Trash Into Gold

Inspired by environmentalists, I started selling recycled, refurbished, repurposed items online a few years back. Selling stuff online really wasn't anything new to me. However, it was different this time around as I was quite driven to make things happpen. So in the process i discovered hacks, tips and tricks to sell stuff online faster (Earth really doesn't have much time for dilly-dallying). To date, I've sold about 300 used really random items in a span of 3 years or so. It turns out that there were just a few simple principles behind doing well selling used stuff. I've distilled them into a 60-page easy-to-read material. Even though i've used a local platform as an example, the principles can be applied to any online Classifieds platform.
