ABOUT THIS EBOOK:
THE BACKSTORY
The original version of this presentation
was published nearly ten years ago, and
still it has stood the test of time and
continues to be viewed thousands of times
a month. In this edition, the principles have
been slightly updated – but otherwise the
lessons here are presented as originally written. When I first wrote this
presentation in 2007, I had been blogging for a mere three years and
shared some initial insights I had learned. Looking back after almost a
decade, I still find these original insights useful and I hope you do too!
