Once again it’s Friday links. Here are some resources from the web, the archives and the shelf to keep you busy over the weekend.
From the Web
Two Views on Personal Finance – I subscribe both to I Will Teach You to Be Rich and Get Rich Slowly. Ramit Sethi of iwillteachyoutoberich.com is a great writer with an easy-to-read conversational tone where he challenges your assumptions on wealth and takes on popular opinion. J.D. Roth of getrichslowly.org has frequent updates with tons of great personal finance information.
Life Coaching Expert – Not a blog, but their site is polished and it has quite a few articles. Worth a look.
Goals to Action – Good personal development blog by Rodger Constandse.
From the Archives
I did an interview with the relationship geek himself, Phil Gerbyshak several months ago. Phil is one of the best online networkers I’ve met, connecting with hundreds of people throughout the web. The interview will be helpful for anyone who is looking for ideas for how to create and maintain online relationships. Phil writes for Make It Great! and he is a new PBN member.

Buddhism – Plain and Simple by Steve Hagen
As part of my ongoing effort to construct a meaningful life philosophy, I’ve read a lot about Eastern religions to contrast my typical Western exposure. This text on Buddhism is one of the best I’ve read. One of the unfortunate side-effects of religion is that the core philosophy often gets blended with a lot of superstition. Hagen does an excellent job of getting right to the core of what the basic philosophy of Buddhism is.
If you liked Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now, or are interested in philosophy I’d suggest checking it out. It’s a quick read and I found it more interesting than the Dalai Lama’s The Art of Happiness.
