We took notice of J.D. Bentley from Wage Slave Rebel recently because he has just been on a roll - pumping out great content, and releasing products.  In this interview we got a sneak peek at what he's got in store for the future -  as well as some insight into how he's looking beyond just a blog, and at creating a community - and a business.

  • The clash of freelancing and lifestyle design
  • Mistakes people make when they make digital products
  • How he created and sold an ebook from public domain source
