Richie Norton contacted me on twitter and asked if me if I wanted a copy of his book. At first I was a bit skeptical. Then I saw the book was called The Power of Starting Something Stupid. Considering how many stupid things I’ve done in my life, I was intrigued. Then, I saw it had been endorsed by Seth Godin and Steve Forbes, so I asked Richie to send me the book. After reading four chapters of his book, I booked a plane ticket to Costa Rica. Richie gave me an eye-opening look into starting something stupid which I think you’ll find very inspiring.
