    @basilesamel - do us a favor: answer this formula: x% of y will buy this book (z)

    I.e. what percentage of your target audience (x) that you reach through a given channel (y) will buy the book (z)?

    I learned this technique of thinking in Alberto Savoia's new book: The Right It - pretty decent.

    @basilesamel Perhaps this is covered some in #50, but I would be interested in how one manages health as a nomad.

      @brandonwilson Yes you are right! Different aspects of mental health are covered in different sections of the book.
