Side Hustle Spark 243: Blog Topic Generator from webfx.com

CLICK THE SCREENSHOT ABOVE FOR A 2-MINUTE DEMO
OF WEBFX.COM’S TOPIC GENERATOR

I know there are other blog topic generators out there, but I really preferred this one over the others.

It didn’t limit me to a single week’s worth of possible titles and it was seamless in its delivery.

The ‘Google This Idea’ button is another plus.

And think of it…you don’t have to limit yourself to your side hustle topics.

Use it to come up with new product and service ideas.

If you dabble in fiction, why not enter ‘Big Bad Wolf’ and see what ideas emerge?

Side Hustle Spark 192: How to be remarkable (Seth Godin)

Hope you enjoy and benefit from this two-minute curation of Seth Godin’s How to be remarkable blog post.

If nothing else, this post should steer you toward his blog/daily email subscription.

Forge ahead!


And now, time for book recommendations…or shameless commercialism…or both. Okay, there are definitely book recommendations…

These seven books are go-to sources of inspiration and valued experience. These are affiliate links which, if you use to preview and buy the product, won’t raise the product’s price and will earn me a commission. At that point, I’ll be that much closer to buying that unclaimed island in the Caribbean. Please don’t ask for the island’s coordinates. It is mine and you can’t have it. ;->

These books cut across so many lines of productivity and accomplishment. Whether you use these links or go elsewhere, get your hands on these.

Side Hustle Spark 184: Brainzooming and Mike Brown

I’ve followed Mike Brown since 2016. He is a consistent source of creative thinking within a business context.

Here is a link to sign up for his 49 Idea Magnet Ideas for Attracting Amazing Ideas

But what exactly are ‘idea magnets’?

Cue to Mike Brown: “Idea Magnets inspire creative ideas and encourage powerful creativity in everyone.” 

Some examples:

  • What can we do better to translate what we know about our customers into pleasant surprises for them?
  • How can we create a place for smart, opinionated, snarky customers to share more of their knowledge with us about what they love (even if it’s NOT about our brand)?
  • How can we test our latest, greatest ideas with a radically small group to get enough confidence to quickly move forward?

The book’s seven categories:

1. Generate Inspiration
2. Embody Servant Leadership
3. Attract Opposites
4. Make Unexpected Connections
5. Encourage People and Ideas
6. Implement for Impact
7. Recharge Creative Energy

Side Hustle Spark 145: Listen to Noah Kerner [Acorns CEO)

The word cloud shares some of the expected topics.

Noah Kerner is the current CEO of microinvesting standout Acorns.

Side Hustle Spark 136: Experts’ excerpts

I know, I know, that’s a mouthful of a title. Sorry, I just had to. Don’t say it out loud and you should be fine…

Yesterday, I ran across startupnation.com‘s book excerpts section.
Lots of wisdom and experience from smart people in compact portions.

If my eyesight and concentration were ‘at one with each other’, I counted 156 different book excerpts.

Other authors include:
Srinivas Rao
Chris Guillebeau
Jen Sincero
Paul Jarvis

Other titles include:
Applied Empathy
Forging An Ironclad Brand
How We Make Stuff Now

The Right It: Why So Many Ideas Fail and How to Make Sure Yours Succeed

Reminder: Don’t forget my suggestion in this post. Record yourself reading aloud ‘good stuff’ like these excerpts and listen to them while rearranging the silverware [yeah, like that’s ever going to happen in my house] or walking the dog [and that happens all too regularly].

A thought…An experiment: You give me the content and I’ll create an mp3 or slide show or video for you. [sidehustlecurator at gmail dot com].


NOTE: I’m not trying to throw shiny objects at you. Just alternative options and ideas from people who’ve ‘been there’.


Thanks for checking in.

It’s Seth Godin’s ebook–the third item down on his ‘free content’ page.

But…can Seth Godin actually write? ;-]

A partial list of his titles:

His latest, The Practice, was just released on November 9.

Others:

  • Linchpin [The first one I bought back in 2006.]
  • All Marketers Tell Stories
  • The Dip [A Little Book That Tells You When to Quit, and When to Stick]
  • Permission Marketing
  • Poke The Box: When Was the Last Time You Did Something for the First Time? [I just ordered this. Too intriguing to pass up.]

Reminder! No affiliations here, just wanting to pass along items that I hope will be helpful.
