In just a couple weeks I went from knowing nothing more than how the pieces moved to being better than half of the millions of users on Chess.com. About a month later it's three quarters of the users (75.5 percentile).

I like the way that sounds but it's honestly not a crazy feat. I got there knowing not a whole lot more, and you can too. I simply learned the fundamentals of the game: the three phases of gameplay, the goals for each and some basic tactics.

Do you want to quickly become an intermediate chess player and be guaranteed to beat any of your friends?

Over the last year I've spent a lot of time on Webflow and gotten quite good at it. Before I start suffering from the curse of knowledge, I want to leverage this period where I still remember the beginner's mind.

Webflow is an incredibly powerful tool, but that power comes with some complexity. If you want to get started with Webflow but have been overwhelmed by its interface and aren't sure where to start, this guide is for you.

Some projects I've built with Webflow: Discount Payments, Jiujitionary, Colorcademy and this site. Enter your info below to be notified when it's ready.

I've been using Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets for over a decade. I didn't realize I was good at spreadsheets until enough people told me so. I became the resident expert at my accounting job and made spreadsheets that saved me hours of weekly work.

Now, spreadsheets basically operate the back-end of my business (Discount Payments) and continue to save me hours of weekly work.

Google Sheets is so much more than a fancy way to make tables. There are 492 functions but you can do an insane amount of things with proper use of just a small handful.

Bitcoin. Blockchain. Bitcoin Cash. Ethereum. Mining. Digital wallets. Keynesian vs Austrian economics. Sound money. Inflationary vs deflationary currencies. So many buzzwords, what do they all mean? What is crypto? While we're asking questions, what is money?

I've been paying attention to this space for the past five or so years and it is absolutely fascinating. Cryptocurrencies live somewhere around the intersection of math, computer science and economics.

If you've been curious about this space but don't know where to start, this book is for you. I will explain the basics of how they work, why they work, how/where to buy them and more.
