The feedback I’ve gotten is incredible, and I’ve decided to go ahead with a full-fledged ebook based on the 31 posts I’ve written. However, I’m adding a lot more resources to the ebook. It’s already 63 pages long — and I’m pretty sure that I’ve got plenty more to add. I’ll be leaving the posts up, of course. You’ll still have access to the basics right here. But if you want more information on anything I discussed, the ebook will be a great resource. It will also be the only way to get a copy of the information I shared via the newsletter, if you didn’t get it already. I’m working hard to get it ready to go as soon as possible.
