Today is part 3 of my 4-part series highlighting some of the best material on IWT, because there’s nothing like glorifying yourself on your own blog.
Today I’m sharing my best webinars and guest posts. If I were to productize these webinars, I estimate they would have generated $500,000 last year — but I want to give them away to you for free, to show you how my free material rivals others’ paid stuff, and to invest in you first. I know that once you get one Big Win, you’ll be ready to invest in yourself, too — whether it’s with my premium materials or others’.
I’m also sharing some of my guest posts on other sites. If you Google “guest post,” you’ll see my extremely detailed guide to writing a guest post is the #1 result on all of Google. This is pretty much the most worthless ranking anyone could ever ask for, showing you why my mastery of SEO remains equal to the knowledge of a 3-year old.
Ok…here you go.
The Master of Persuasion: My interview with BJ Fogg
BJ Fogg is a Stanford professor and one of my mentors. He taught me much of what I know about persuasion. In this webinar, which took me over 15 hours to prepare for, we cover academic theory and applied persuasion, including how to persuade others — and yourself. Want to know how to influence people at work? How to floss more? Here you go.
The $22 Million Dollar Man
My friend Derek Sivers founded CDBaby and recently sold it for millions. Learn about his unconventional story, plus a new way of thinking about success and achievement.
Make art, make money — at the same time
Chase Jarvis is one of the best-known photographers on the planet. He flew me to his studio in Seattle where I went in-depth on earning money on the side — especially for creatives — for 90 minutes. I share some of my most sophisticated techniques on pricing, marketing, finding a profitable idea, and avoiding time-wasters. Over 50,000 views.
I spend 12-15 hours writing each guest post. Here are some of my favorites, including some foundational aspects of IWT that will change the way you think about money and behavioral change.
The Psychology of Automation: Building a bulletproof personal-finance system (Four Hour Workweek)
The seminal overview on automating your finances. Start here.
The Psychology of Passive Barriers: Why your friends don’t save money, eat healthier, or clean their garages (Get Rich Slowly)
“Barriers are one of the implicit reasons you can’t achieve your goals. They can be psychological or profoundly physical, like something as simple as not having a pen when you need to fill out a form. But the underlying factor is that they are breathtakingly simple — and if I pointed them out to you about someone else, you would be sickened by how seemingly obvious they are to overcome.”
The Best $20 You’ll Ever Spend (Get Rich Slowly)
This one is short, but I guarantee it can change your life.
How to Pay Down Debt and Invest at the Same Time (Lifehacker)
I’ve posted a number of videos (with analysis) on Lifehacker. A couple more of my favorites are: How to Get a Credit Card with No Credit and What Should You Do With Your Extra Money
