SMART Resources

 

Part of SMART Thinking is using and leveraging the skills and expertise of others. I put together this page to give you the resources I use and what I recommend. I will update this page over time so please bookmark it and check frequently!

As I mentioned on the Start Here Page, if you want to think, be, and live SMART, then we have to learn SMART. We learn by reading, listening, observing, and doing. I have broken down some of the resources in those categories. These resources will help with Thinking SMART, SMART Money, Living SMART, and SMART Leadership!

I am always looking for the best deals, and Amazon is one of the best sites to get items you need. Also when you join Amazon Prime, you get Free Two-Day Shipping (3 to 5 if you are in Hawaii), and this alone for me is worth it since I live out in the middle of nowhere in Honolulu. You also get free Prime Movies, Prime Music, Prime Photos, and some other great benefits.

 

SMART Reading

I believe reading (or listening) to books and other publications is extremely important for SMART Growth. I am a big fan of the Kindle app. You can download it to your computer or smart phone: apple, android, or windows. You can read any of the books I recommend on a kindle, nook, and other ereader tablets, or get a physical copy of the book and read the old fashioned way (There is something about a book in your hands!)

I am a big fan of audiobooks. Since I am stuck in traffic everyday, I either listening to a book  on Audible or a podcast! Audible is owned by Amazon, so you can sync some books with your kindle, which is very convenient. According to Thomas Corley, the author of Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals, reading and listening to audio books are “rich habits” that separate the rich from the poor.

Here some great benefits of Audible Gold Membership:

  • Includes one free audiobook of your choice per month.

The SMART wealthy in particular love non-fiction, specifically self-improvement books. They “are voracious readers on how to improve themselves” and 88% of them read for self-improvement for at least half an hour every day, compared to 2% of poor people. 64% of the rich listen to audio books during their commute to work, compared to just 5% of poor people.

SMART Traveling

I travel quite a bit, and always look for the best travel hacks. Click Here for my Top Airline Travel Tips and Hacks!

Both Uber and Lyft have revolutionized transportation, I use it on weekly basis. If you haven’t tried it yet, it is basically a ride-sharing service. You download and use the app on a mobile device to have one of the drivers pick you up at you current location and take you to where you want to go and can pay through the app which is very convenient.

Lyft LogoI recommend that you use the two codes here to get the free coupons for each company. Many drivers work for both companies.


SMART Business

Looking to start a business? Make sure you choose the right structure and legal entity for it. I have created a dozen or more and Legal Zoom is one of the easiest ways to get started. Visit Legal Zoom to help you decide which one is the best for you and your business.

#Set up an eCommerce Site with Shopify. I have two at hawaiidelight.com and premiumegoods.com and it is very simple to use and get any product you want to sell out to market. They have free or paid templates you can use. Uploading products is a cinch and you have several options to get paid.

Want to start a blog or website? I HIGHLY recommend A2 Hosting for your sites. There are many out there but recently many have been bought out, consolidating under one large company. The problem is that the level of service has gone down. A2 has not and they have been very responsive with any requests. You can use the same account for multiple domains. It is really easy to install WordPress and use Google Products with A2.
