Guides

 
I’m cataloging these books I pulled out of storage yesterday and planning on reviewing some. I still have more books to sort through, and even more I’ve downloaded to my iPad.
⠀
Some of these are on type, productivity, business, and design.
⠀
Maybe I’ll turn it all into a resources page?

Do you have a hobby you wish you could indulge in all day? An obsession that keeps you up at night? Now is the perfect time to take that passion and make a living doing what you love.

 
 
⚡️What would I do without workflows?
⠀
I definitely didn’t have enough coffee this morning because I was still craving another cup. But I was so focused on updating my calendar and task list that I never got up to make another cup. I kept telling myself to get up and now look. It’s so late in the day that if I have another I won’t eat lunch.
⠀
The upside to keeping these tools updated is that I never have to worry about what to work on. Every morning I open the Things app and there it is—my most important task for the day. Right after coffee that is.
⠀
Now if I can just figure out whether I want coffee or lunch?

Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion

Gary Vaynerchuk

Do you have a hobby you wish you could indulge in all day? An obsession that keeps you up at night? Now is the perfect time to take that passion and make a living doing what you love.

I have stacks of books, mostly business and personal development, that I’ve been collecting since college. I started reading them during a time in which I turned away from art to pursue business. I’ve learned two things from reading them all.
⠀
1️⃣ I wasn’t ready to listen back then. I was young and had no idea who I was.
⠀
2️⃣ They drove me back to my craft armed with a renewed understanding of what I was capable of.
⠀
So while I picked up a lot from these books, it was all lost on me not knowing what to do with the information. I’m pulling them all out of storage and going back to read them again. Some for a second or third time. Others, for the first time—like this one I just got from my sister 🥰

🎙 Hey there! I’m getting ready to start recording some episodes for the podcast and I’d like to ask for your help. If you’ve been following along with me or have listened to the show before, I’d like to include you in an upcoming Q&A episode.
⠀
All you have to do is visit my bio @davidsilvaco and hit call. It’ll take you straight to a mailbox where you can record your question and I’ll take care of the rest.
⠀
While most of the episodes will include interviews with other creatives, I realize that sometimes there are questions you’d really like to have answered. I’ll do my best then to answer it myself or possibly have a guest do the same.

Yesterday I kicked off a few projects around the podcast. The biggest and most exciting one is a podcast collaboration which I’m aiming to have ready in September 🤞 In any case, I’m also moving forward with content guides and a short email course on marketing.
