“How to work for yourself” by Bryan Cohen (e-book and course)

Have you ever wished you could manage your time in a better and more efficient way? How many times have you postponed a new project to start but never actually got to do it? Don’t lie, we have all been there at least once. So how can we find an effective way to manage our time more wisely and be able to tackle this project we care about? I have recently found the answer in Bryan Cohen, teacher and author of “How to Work for Yourself: 100 Ways to Make the Time, Energy and Priorities to Start a Business, Book or Blog”, which is a win-win situation. In fact, the course is divided into a digital part (e-book) and a visual part (video lectures).

I will start talking about the e-book because that is how I found out about Bryan: I was browsing the iBooks app looking for some free material about blogging and time management, and here I found him. The book has 66 pages, and provides the reader with 100 (maybe more) tips and tricks on how to be more efficient and where to start in planning your project. It is divided into several sections: time management, different kinds of energy, creativity, goal setting, life circumstances and your project.
Needless to say, Bryan has done an amazing job in writing it; the structure of the book is extremely simple, the tips are super easy to follow and the writing technique makes you feel as though you were a friend of his. At the end of the book, a link to his free course is provided, for everyone wanting to expand the topic.
I have downloaded it from an iOS platform, but you can also find it for free on Amazon (Kindle version), by clicking here.

Now moving on to the course, it is uploaded on Udemy, a platform for online courses, and you will need an account in order to attend it. The registration is free and quick, you can do it here. You will then find Bryan’s course by clicking here. The lectures are free if you use the referral link contained in the free e-book, otherwise they will cost $19 for the whole course, if bought from the link provided in this article.
The course consists of 43 video lectures that don’t last more than seven-eight minutes each. It is divided in sections, following Bryan’s friendly style:
– Introduction
– Time (+ 2 exercises)
– Energy (+ 4 exercises)
– Life (+ 2 exercises)
– Your Project (+ 2 exercises)
– In Conclusion

Each section contains a certain amount of videos with which Bryan teaches you the basics of the related topic, and a final “Resources” and “Recap” videos, through which he gives you any reference in case you wished to learn more (books, movies etc.) and a recap of the whole section. Moreover, with the exception of the first and the last section, he always invites you to complete some exercises related to the analysed topic; the majority of these exercise have to do with writing things down and really getting your brain to think, and their purpose is to consolidate everything taught in the lectures. The exercises will help you to brainstorm and bring your project to life, while figuring out all the other aspects of your personal life.
At the end of the entire course, he kindly offers you a free copy of the related e-book and a certificate of completion of the course.

Especially in his Udemy course, Bryan’s attitude is amazing: he is not one of those boring teachers, he is incredibly funny, understandable and prepared.

When I started both courses (by the way, they have the same title and the same general structure, but the tricks taught in them are different), I wasn’t looking for a way to start a project (I already had my blog up), but to improve and make it better. Indeed I did, and it’s all thanks to Bryan and his amazing help.
I feel the need to suggest to everyone who understands English to either download the book or attend the course (or both, they’re free!). I can guarantee you will be satisfied and your life, relationship and new project will take a whole different path. And if, by chance, you shouldn’t be happy with the results, at least you won’t have spent huge amounts of money on it.

Lastly, despite the title talks about creating a blog, book or business, these tips are definitely applicable to any project in your life, even just for creating a study plan or organizing your workspace, since they suit every need.
Trust me, it’s worthy. And Bryan really is the best guy! See you soon with another post in English!

  3. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
