App Empire: Make Money, Have a Life, and Let Technology Work for You by Chad Mureta
Click Millionaires: Work Less, Live More with an Internet Business You Love by Scott Fox
I enjoyed both of them. The first one, App Empire, discusses the boom of SmartPhone apps and how “easy” it is to make money by making apps. I say “easy” because he layouts out the practical things that you have to do to come up with a successful app. However it isn’t really easy because a lot of homework is involved in doing it right. I found the book very interesting and practical.
The second book, Click Millionaires, focuses on making money via a web site. Scott Fox is also very practical and helpful. After reading the book, I signed up at his Click Millionairs web site. He is a genuinely helpful guy.
I was originally going to post some material here to benefit my children (who are looking for ways to make money). But instead I’ve started a new site where I will blog as I learn. http://www.makemoneyonlinetipsandtricks.com/
Today a fellow software developer told us that he woke up at 6 AM this morning to find his four-year-old son trying to play his brand-new game on the XBox. However the XBox wasn’t working. After fiddling with the console for a while, the dad decided to disconnect and then reconnect all of the cables. Then came the surprise…but first a little background to the story.
Last night, his son had received a new video game and was playing it. At the time, the game was having some problems; the dad told his son that sometimes the XBox gets too hot and needs to cool off.
So when the dad picked up the XBox to check the connections, out poured water! His son had tried to cool off the console with water. When he realized his mistake, he ran to his room. his dad found him crying in his closet. Poor guy!
