Here are some of my favorite things.
Learn how to succeed in any skill you want from the most successful people in world. MasterClass offers some of the most famous, respected masters as teachers, from Gordon Ramsay to Sara Blakely to Christina Aguilera to Martin Scorsese to Malcolm Gladwell to Howard Schultz. All for an affordable monthly price. Check out my review of MasterClass here.
Many of my readers ask me for tips on starting a business from scratch and making money online. As someone who has spent over a decade getting familiar with the online business and marketing industry, I am confident recommending Pat Flynn’s Smart from Scratch course. He has thousands of success stories helping students turn a profit online and embodies values I hold dear, such as honesty, ethics, and doing the right thing. If you’re not ready to pay, Pat also offers free courses on building your brand and validating a business idea.
I’ve finished over 300 books in the last few years. I’m known as the “guy who reads a lot.” My secret?…
I don’t like reading actual books. I listen to most of the books as audiobooks! Audible, a company created by Amazon, offers audio books from their extensive library for a monthly fee. Get a free audiobook of your choice by trying Audible here.
I’ve taken online courses, in-person seminars, gone to conferences that cost more than a $1,000. I’ve consumed thousands of YouTube videos, speeches, podcasts, and more on success. Yet a lot of the most impactful growth I’ve seen comes from the information in books, often biographies. Where else can you get the blueprint of Kevin Hart, Andrew Carnegie, Richard Branson, Bill Gates, and Oprah?
Need book recommendations? I’ve wrote many listicles for the best books of different categories, whether you want to change your life, get a better job, improve your relationships and social skills, or live happier. Browse around my social media and blog, use the search function, or Google.
I created this course myself for you. I’ve studied some of the world’s best “speed learners” over the years, including Josh Waitzkin, a man who became a national champion in chess and a world champion in Tai Chi Chuan by the time he was 30, and Tim Ferriss, someone who become a world champion salsa dancer from scratch in a matter of months. In this course, you’ll learn how to improve your proficiency at any skill more efficiently and reliably through science.
How To Get A High Paying Job With No Experience or Skills
Seth Jared’s In Demand Career course explains how you can get a digital marketing job with a youthful team and perks (insurance, work-life balance, remote options, snacks, ping pong, video games, snacks in the office) with little to no experience, degree, or skills. That’s because this job has a high demand and low supply — and young professionals don’t know how to accurately obtain the skills and apply. You can see results in just a couple months. Here’s my review on the course.
Book summaries are great for refreshing your mind on the main points of a book you read or getting a taste for a book you’re considering reading. I don’t recommend it as a substitution for the actual book since some books say much more than a summary can explain. Blinkist is a good book summary app. Here’s my review of the app. If you’re still interested in trying it out, use my link: willyoulaugh.com/blinkist

Here’s a testimonial from a client.
Will Chou is an excellent coach who really values and empowers his clients. He really helped me with some digital marketing challenges I had. Will gave me some great advice on how to grow my e-mail list. He thoroughly reviewed my website and made some recommendations on how I could improve it to get more clients.
Will is very focused and highly-skilled at getting people the results they want. He listens deeply. He asks great, insightful questions that make you think about problems and then use your own wisdom and intelligence to solve them. Other times, he provides guidance and advice that’s practical and effective. Will is a great accountability partner. He’ll help you set goals and follow up with you to make sure you’re on track. He has a caring, empathetic style of coaching that makes people feel comfortable. I’d definitely hire him again in the future. -Charles Amemiya, Speaker and Coach
