Handle Your Business: a short book about managing your tiny business

A few years ago a friend of mine who owns a small consulting business was freaking out about their tax bill. Another posted about *their* huge tax bill and how they were going to have to go on a payment plan. Then a third was trying to figure out their retirement options. My book Handle Your Business is for them, and if you run (or want to run) a small business, it's for you too. [more inside]

#BusinessyBrunette: Lessons from Harvard Business School's HBX CORe

I'm currently taking Harvard Business School's HBX CORe, an online business fundamentals course that covers analytics, accounting, and economics. I'm writing up what I'm learning and making it accessible to non-MBA types. Topics covered include minimum wage, the math behind trendlines, and why the Spiders Georg meme is off, amongst others!

Tours of Failed Civilizations

Metafilter saved my life on so many days when I felt hopeless and alone. Here is my love letter back. It's about systems collapse, intimacy, and grief. I tried to keep it as funny as possible, but it did turn out a little dark. I hope you like it. If financial concerns prevent you from enjoying this work at this time, ping me. I think a crate of .pdf's fell off the Amazon truck.

ProjectMONA: Rebuilding the Polymath

Earlier this year me and a couple friends of mine decided the Internet needed more big ideas, and the world needed more polymaths, so we decided to tackle both problems with a community called ProjectMONA. Our (first) focus is on taking research from the behavioral sciences and turning it into web apps like this. To fully understand our mission you should probably check out our projects or read the Manifesto. Thanks guys!

The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business

I wrote a book designed to teach the essentials of modern business practice. If you're a craftsman, designer, programmer, artist, entrepreneur, or professional, you'll find it quite useful. There's no need to spend $150,000+ to attend business school. Learn the fundamentals on your own, and you'll do just as well - and save a ton of money in the process.
