BibliOBSESSED | Emails to make you smarter

Hey, there, smarty pants.
Welcome to the first issue of BibliOBSESSED.
Here’s some good stuff I read (and watched and listened to) for you.
#1 - A super-fast content marketing strategy.
#2 - A quote about ninja-kicking your inner psychology.
#3 - A few questions about why you exist (no offense).
#4 - Another quote about conquering your thoughts (because, well, it’s important).
Hope you like the selection.
—Amber (head reader at BibliOBSESSED)
P.S. Quick orientation, the categories are WORK, LIFE, and SELF. You’ll see those at the start of each piece.

A 5-minute content marketing strategy
(Prefer the full article? Read it here.)
I found this really good content on, well … er, content marketing by Jason and Caroline Zook. Worth a gander if you’re in business and looking to spruce up your marketing efforts.
The gist?
Content marketing in six easy steps:
  1. Think of your ideal customer.
  2. Think of his or her dilemmas.
  3. Write “how” and “why” pieces to solve those dilemmas.
  4. Send out regular email newsletters with those articles.
  5. Do video/podcast episodes to deepen relationships with your audience.
  6. Use snippets and quotes from those article and video/podcast pieces for social media (don’t keep reinventing the wheel and wondering what to post!).
The entire episode is worth a listen, but if you’re looking for quick help to direct your marketing efforts, listen to the 5-minute clip explaining their content marketing strategy.
Jump to about 1:04-1:09 in the episode.

What's your inner narrative?
“The key to growth is looking into your own narratives and mastering your inner psychology.” 
A simple way to find your purpose (or focus/direction)
(Prefer the full article? Read it here.)
Here’s a great piece of life advice I heard on James Altucher’s podcast. It’s from comedian Pete Holmes.
“Who are you? Why are you? Why now?”
If you’re looking for a way to find your purpose (or a purpose, if you don’t believe in just one) OR a way to identify what you should do with your life OR a way to focus your marketing efforts within your business OR a way to gain some direction and get unstuck, you can answer a lot with just those three questions:
  1. Who are you?
  2. Why are you?
  3. Why now?
If you have the time, listen to the full episode, but if you just want to catch Pete’s full explanation of this line on purpose, you can jump ahead to this 5-minute(ish) clip.
Jump to about 9:42-14:04 in the episode.

Choose your thoughts. (Seriously.)
“Confronting fear, weaknesses, and neediness by choosing our own thoughts is the way out.”
