This segment is where you’ll find a lot of the resources that we personally use here at the Stillness Project – what we have found to work and what we still do. As we will continue to update and evolve our systems and processes, expect to see this section changing over time. Social media platforms change, trends come and go. It’s important to note what works for you and we present this as a guide, an example of what may be possible. Feel free to adapt it and evolve it as your business grows.

Turning Pro by Steven Pressfield
This is not a “how-to” book with an actionable plan or tips, it is a quiet meditation on that point when you need to decide to take yourself and your dreams more seriously and really begin to take the risks and the off-road path toward dedicating yourself to at least give those dreams a chance to take root. The author has a bohemian, beatnik-influenced style and attitude toward life that any Kerouac fan will enjoy, and his humility in his early failed efforts is very touching. It is a short but inspiring little book that will help motivate a dreamer to become a doer.
Delivering Happiness by Tony Hseih
In DELIVERING HAPPINESS, Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh shares the different lessons he has learned in business and life, from starting a worm farm to running a pizza business, through LinkExchange, Zappos, and more. Fast-paced and down-to-earth, DELIVERING HAPPINESS shows how a very different kind of corporate culture is a powerful model for achieving success-and how by concentrating on the happiness of those around you, you can dramatically increase your own.
The Ultimate Blueprint For An Insanely Successful Business by Keith Cunningham
Small business owners have repeatedly made a faulty assumption, and this assumption is killing them: Get big to get rich. A better question would be: What did the big guys do that caused the success that allowed them to get big? The answer is not just one thing. Business is complex and anyone who says it isn’t is trying to sell you their version of the magic pill. But there are some common denominators which drive sustainability and long term success. One of those is a willingness to think… another is an ability to measure. This book teaches you the strategies which will give you optics and enhance your ability to see the places where you’re leaving money on the table and sabotaging your business.
