The Tim Ferriss Hack to Become a Niche Expert in Four Weeks Sometimes, I think we niche marketers all feel like total frauds at what we do. Even in our day jobs that we’ve been doing for the last 10+ years… there’s just those days where we feel like our incompetence is going to be suddenly discovered and we’ll be yelled at and fired on the spot.

But even when you feel smart enough to do your day job in your sleep, the fear of not being smart enough to be perceived as an "expert" in something else so you can quit that draining day job keeps you chained to your cubicle, month after month.

As users “patch,” visually creating tools in Max, objects that impact user interface interaction (knobs, faders, buttons, musical keyboards and the like) are visible both on your computer screen and on your iPad.

Do You Know the Difference Between a Copywriter and a Copyright? Do You Know the Difference Between a Copywriter and a Copyright?What You Don’t Know Could Be Costing You Money All leading companies and brands use professional copywriters to make everything from their pay-per-click ads to their web pages, flyers, newsletters, and brochures.

The Pop-Up Pinhole Project by Kelly Angood As featured on... It's Nice That - "It produces very high quality, two-fingers-up to Instagram, pinhole photographs" Fast Co. Design - "It’s Angood’s perfectionism for artifice that elevates the Videre beyond mere gimmick to a nostalgic reboot, a celebration of vintage cameras, papercraft, and medium format film photography in one. It’s not designed to make photography simple; it’s designed to make photography fun." I've come to Kickstarter to help me raise the funds I need to turn my medium format pinhole 'Videre' camera into a do-it-yourself, flat pack kit.
