ChangeThis
I have made a mistake. The blame is on me. I should write about this a long time ago, but for one reason or another, I keep forgetting to share this resource to you.

The resources have helped me a lot, and I want to clean up the mess and share this resource with you. – it is better late than never.

I am not affiliated with the resources site, but I clearly ENDORSE it simply because… the resources are written by top business people and are free to access, free to share and free to benefit from – no strings attached, no gimmicks, no hidden intentions.

Nothing beats top quality free resources that can help you and your business to be better.

I voluntarily endorse ChangeThis

I highly recommend you to visit ChangeThis – a unique media site presenting resources in the form of ‘manifestos’ from top business thinkers, mentors, authors and entrepreneurs – such as Seth Godin, Hugh MacLeod and Stephen Shapiro.

What is a manifesto, anyway? As explained in ChangeThis site, a manifesto is essentially referring to an e-book in PDF format containing “an argument, a reasoned, rational call to action, supported by logic and facts.”

The idea behind ChangeThis was originated from Seth Godin – it was finally took form in 2004 by Amit Gupta, Catherine Hickey, Noah Weiss, Phoebe Espiritu and Michelle Sriwongtong.

What’s inside?

What I like about the manifestos is the unique, powerful, and often revolutionary ideas – the Seth Godin-style – that can help you in your self-development endeavours, as well as enriching and enhancing your small business.

The manifestos are free to download, distributed and share – in fact, you can do anything to the manifestos, as long as you don’t involve money in the process (but you shouldn’t throw it away, though… it’s too valuable!)

A great wealth of free resources available on ChangeThis. My long-time favourite is The Bootstrapper’s Bible, written by Seth Godin and published in November 16, 2004.

The manifesto contains Seth’s tips on how to start a business with no money. It is one of the resources that have helped me navigating my way in entrepreneurship journey. To me, it’s better than 95% business/entrepreneurship books I have read in my entire life.

Another manifesto to recommend is one of the newest published manifestos, Bill Schley’s Survival of the Simplest: The Micro-Script Rules.

The manifesto is about how to get people to fully understand what you are saying; how tell your stories – in consulting sessions, in business presentation, in casual conversation, etc. – in such a way that the heart of the message sink in your audiences’ mind, bypassing their mental barriers and mindsets. This manifesto is a must-read for mentors, educators and business owners.

There is so much to share!

‘Nuff said – just log on to ChangeThis and start reading the manifestos. I insist you.
