1. The Art and Science of Making Irresistible Requests

KellyAzevedoavatar“I love The Art and Science of Making Irresistible Requests, a site dedicated to teaching how to request what you need from colleagues, team, mentors and clients. Whenever I get stuck on an email or am resisting making a call to ask a favor, I review the principles. It’s truly is an art and science!”

4. Amy Hoy at Unicornfree

ThursdayBramavatar-100x100“Many of the ‘follow your passion’ bloggers out there fail to give actionable advice. Amy Hoy at Unicornfree is a clear example of someone who has effectively built the business she wanted, and is willing to share clear information on how readers can do the same thing. She doesn’t want you to build a business on glitter and rainbows.”


Thursday Bram | Consultant, Hyper Modern Consulting



5. Neville Medhora at Neville’s Financial Blog

MattMickiewiczavatarNeville’s Financial Blog is a really fun and entertaining blog that shows the power of “hustle.” The author experiments with selling bottled water, crashing high-end parties, reselling confiscated airport stuff and even trying out being homeless to see what it’s like being at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder.”


Matt Mickiewicz | Co-Founder, Flippa and 99designs



6. Ben Lang at EpicLaunch
