This week we were delighted to have discovered that AudioAcrobat has been featured in Nick Loper’s book, Work Smarter: 350+ Online Resources Today’s Top Entrepreneurs Use To Increase productivity and Achieve Their Goals and are excited to formally share our inclusion here first on the AudioAcrobat Blog!
At the time of writing this, the eBook version is listed at $2.99, and the paperback at $8.99 with free shipping for Amazon Prime members. However, an Amazon Prime membership also appears to land you free access to “borrow” the eBook version using an Amazon Kindle device or iOS / Android app! More on that here.
This list of resources is for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs. I’m sure some of the tools you’ve already heard of and are using every day in your work, but I guarantee some will be new to you.
That’s the beauty of asking more than 500 business owners for their top online resources; you’re bound to get some great diversity in the responses.
And as entrepreneurs, we’re always looking for ways to work smarter and tools to help make our lives easier.
My interest in – and appreciation for – the “tools of the trade” goes back to elementary school. My dad would refuse to help me with my homework until I sharpened my pencil.
The dull, blunt pencil didn’t bother me at the time, but it was his gentle way of saying the tools you work with matter.
The resources named in this book are the sharpest pencils out there, helping small business owners get more done than ever before. –Nick Loper
