Summary of episode
Todays, the episode is a guest interview with Thinh Dinh, he is the first guest on “The Niche Around Podcast”.
Thinh recently featured me on his website Entrepreneurs Setup where I showed my current setup(which I tend to keep pretty mobile).
His niche website asks what exactly do entrepreneurs have in their office and what tools, resources and apps do they use.
In this article, we cover Thinh’s reason behind his blog, and how his blogging journey has changed over the past 4 years.
Thinh was also influenced like myself by Pat Flynn’s website Smart passive income.
Towards the end of the audio we did get a little bit cut off due to a new recording software I was trialing.

What you will learn in this episode:
- What Thinh wish he knew before he started blogging
- His list top 3 resources he would recommend(and he uses a LOT of resources)
- Analysis Paralysis – Why you need to take action rather than know and learn everything
- Why giving value is better than just chasing the money.
- What else Thinh is working on.
His top 3 resources:
- Evernote – Thinh’s advice, don’t make too many clippings but store as much information as you can.
- ToDoIst – Thinh’s go to for to do lists. I mentioned previously on episode 5 how important it was to do a daily to-do list. Flexible in the way it manages projects. It makes entering new tasks quick, and it has a lot of support for virtually all devices. Thinh also explains how the Karma additional gamify’s it.
- Momentum habit tracker – Our habits define us, and this tool just does one thing. It helps you stick to your habits. The app sits in your menu bar when you click on the menu you bad you tick off each task every day. I am looking forward to checking this one out.
