How to Get Paid to Learn

How to Get Paid to Learn "I want to get paid to learn. But the way to get paid to learn is to share knowledge and create something useful with that." - James Clear James Clear gets paid to learn. His writing on the hidden forces that shape our habits using them to maximize performance is read by over 1 million people per month at jamesclear.com.

Market Like a Marine

“Traditional marketing is BS.” Ok, I wanted to hear what this guy had to say. And when I met Todd Caccamo, I was surprised to learn how his experience in the Marines aligns with the scrappiness you expect more from startups. In this interview, you’ll find one recurring theme: start with something unconventional – whether it’s attacking the competition from a crazy starting point to doing something “in the way that is wrong”, Todd explains why conventional marketing wisdom doesn’t work anymore. And as he reminds me, the enemy always gets a vote.
