Interesting Finds – 3/01/2007

Interesting FindsJust a way to share a random collection of interesting stuff I found this week… is always a great read. Today, Dmitri Davydov posts “10 Weird Businesses That Make Money Out Of Nothing.” Some of these are really interesting.

What would you do if you won the lottery? Blow it all and end up poor again, like so many others? Or do what Brad Duke did, and make your winnings a gift that keeps on giving?

Along the lines of my “Finding Your Passion Amid the Hate” post, Sarah Winfrey over at WiseBread writes about “How to survive (and thrive!) in a job you hate.”

The list of tools available to help a home-based entrepreneur run their business keep growing. It’s a great time to run your empire from the comfort of your nest. Read/Write Web covers some of the tools making the virtual company possible – “Software For Virtual Teams.”

Mack Collier may not be a NIN fan, but I am from back in the day. I’m also a fan of The Viral Garden, and Mack provides some excellent coverage of NIN’s viral campaign – “NIN Believes The Truth Is Out There.”


  1. I particularly love Brad Duke’s sharing on how he handled his sudden windfall, very inspiring.

    Man, one of these days you should compile all the information here and make a book out of it. I’ll be the first to buy it.

  2. Jesus, NicheGeek kicks some hind end! I don’t normally click on links but the above ones were bookmarked with the quickness.

    I don’t normally thank people for links either but thank you on this one for sure.


  3. Lorna – Me too. You always hear about how those who suddenly come into money blow it all or end up worse off. It’s nice to hear something inspiring. I’ll have to think about the book 😉

    Shane – It’s a pretty cool site. I’ve always been fascinated with niche businesses, especially from a home-based entrepreneur perspective. Some of the ideas and stories are very interesting.

  4. Woohoo, another NIN fan!

    (just found your site, Tony – I’ve been meaning to get here… finally made it, and WOW is all I can say! I could read all day long if I had the time 😆 (wouldn’t we all? I mean, read all day long if we could? 😀 okay, maybe some of ‘we’ aren’t as big on the reading – it could happen! :O )

    Looking forward to reading more (and more, and more…(!)),
