When Leo tells me he’s starting something new I always take notice – he’s got a habit of making things work and has built his blog from 0 to over 50,000 subscribers in under a year, has written an excellent ebook – Zen to Done (the ultimate simple productivity system) and has been a prolific guest blogger.
Leo’s new project called Web Warrior Tools and is a partnership with fellow blogger Glen Stansberry from LifeDev.
They’re promoting it as ‘ridiculously useful ebook guides to everything’ and are launching with 4 ebooks:
1. Beginners Guide to Podcasting – an introduction to expanding into the medium of podcasting.
2. Email Zen - efficient email management
3. The Get Rich Slowly Guide to Roth IRAs – retirement planning resource
4. Healthy Life Secrets – a guide for those who want to break out of an unhealthy lifestyle
These four are just the beginning of what looks like being a fairly extensive library of ebooks. What I like about it is that the ebooks are cheap ($6-$9), they’re beautifully designed (as is everything Leo does) and well written. You can preview them on the site to get a taste before buying.
Leo and Glen have shown another way that bloggers can make money with Web Warrior Tools. They’ve both built a large following of readers on their blogs and now are joining together to leverage that profile to release products that relate to the blogs that they’ve built.
