Domain Names

Namecheap

I used GoDaddy for a good many years to register my domain names. After years of one price increase after another for domain name renewals, I finally had it with GoDaddy, so I transferred all my domain names over to Namecheap and am glad I did. Though not quite as slick looking as GoDaddy, they do what they do well, have excellent support, and I saved a bunch of money by moving my domain names there.

Email Marketing

AWeber

After a short, rather unpleasant experience with another email marketing company (among other things, I wasn’t getting my own emails), I began using AWeber shortly after I began doing business on the internet, and they’ve yet to give me a reason to look elsewhere. Highly reliable (I don’t recall their system ever being down), great deliverability, and excellent support. Not much else I need to say.

Entertainment

Sondre Olsen-Bye & Tanya Georgiievska

Sondre Olsen-Bye & Tanya Georgiievska are a professional, world-champion swing dance couple. I discovered their YouTube videos during the darkest days of the pandemic lockdown here. I can’t tell you the amount of joy, happiness, and inspiration I, and judging from the comments I’ve read, many, many, many thousands of others (they have over 100,000 subscribers), get from their dance videos and vlogs. I highly encourage you to check them out for yourself. You’ll be really glad you did!

Click or tap here to watch Sondre & Tanya’s dance videos and vlogs on their YouTube channel.

If you do what you like and look straight ahead, anything is possible.

Personal Finance

More Wealth Without Risk: How to Develop a Personal Fortune Without Going Out on a Limb

This book has been worth its weight in gold to me … many, many, many times over! Though some of its strategies are a tad out-of-date, More Wealth Without Risk: How to Develop a Personal Fortune Without Going Out on a Limb by Charles J. Givens remains my personal finance bible to this day!

Financial Self-Defense: How to Win the Fight for Financial Freedom

Financial Self-Defense: How to Win the Fight for Financial Freedom by Charles J. Givens is the essential companion to his book, More Wealth Without Risk: How to Develop a Personal Fortune Without Going Out on a Limb. Nuff said!

IAS Financial (formerly the Charles J. Givens Organization)

I’ve been a satisfied member of the Charles J. Givens Organization/IAS Financial since 1988. Though it appears Mr. Givens’ money strategies have been somewhat conservatized by the organization since his passing in 1998, I still find it to be an excellent source of unbiased financial information I can trust.

Note: You can also get the latest version of the IAS Financial Library (copies of the original Charles J. Givens Financial Library are sometimes available on eBay here), the IAS Real Estate Library, and new copies of Charles J. Givens’ SuperSelf book from IAS Financial.

Self-Help

SuperSelf: Doubling Your Personal Effectiveness

If I could recommend but one self-help book, this would be the one: SuperSelf: Doubling Your Personal Effectiveness by Charles J. Givens. Part II of this book, “Planning and Controlling Your Future”, alone could well be worth thousands (many, many, many thousands!) of times whatever it costs you to get your hands on this gem.

Unfortunately, this book is long out-of-print. Copies available on Amazon will vary in condition and pricing. You might also want to check on eBay. Copies available there will vary in condition and pricing as well.

Tip: Super Self: Doubling Your Personal Effectiveness is available on Amazon as both a hardcover book and an abridged (condensed) audiobook on Audible. I suggest you get both, and use them in conjunction with one another. That’s what I do.

Web Hosting

Hawk Host

After three disastrous experiences with other web hosts, I finally found Hawk Host back in 2010 and haven’t looked back since. They have reasonable pricing (very reasonable pricing!), excellent 24/7/365 support, and absolutely incredible reliability (I don’t ever remember one of my websites being down). I couldn’t ask for more!

WordPress

1-Hour WordPress 2022: A Visual Step-By-Step Guide to Building WordPress Websites in One Hour or Less!

Although I desperately needed one, I put off building a WordPress website for the longest time because everything I read or watched on the subject left me feeling confused and frustrated. Well, that ended when I found the book 1-Hour WordPress 2022: A Visual Step-By-Step Guide to Building WordPress Websites in One Hour or Less! by Dr. Andy Williams. It made the task a downright joy. Did I do it in an hour? No, not really. But 2-3 hours after I started I had a fully functioning site. I absolutely love the book’s detailed, step-by-step instructions, arrowed and numbered screenshots, and the two free video courses Andy throws in on the deal. Couldn’t have asked for more!
