Gen The 10 Woman reading tablet-1Are you excited about the Olympics? I remember when I was a kid how excited I would get to watch them. That was back when it was only shown on one channel, and you were at the mercy of whatever the station wanted to show. I still loved it.

I have noticed that my interest in the Olympics has waned somewhat. Am I wrong? Are you excited for the Olympics? What sport will you watch? Send me a message on Twitter or Facebook and let me know!

Before you start watching, check out these great books and articles!

 Book I read this week: Writing Riches: Learn How to Boost Profits, Drive Sales and Master Your Financial Destiny With Results-Based Web Copy by Ray Edwards. I recently discovered his podcast. He is known best as a copywriter, working with Tony Robbins, Jeff Walker and many others. I think this book is really helpful, whether you want to sell products online or just write better emails.

Book I’m reading next week: How to Write Copy That Sells: The Step-By-Step System for More Sales, to More Customers, More Often by Ray Edwards. I liked his book Writing Riches so much that I decided to read his latest book on copywriting.
