Hey everybody and greetings from sunny and beautiful Mexico once again. Life is grand, but I have a little something to confess today.
A few months ago, I sat down and established a bunch of goals for this blog. The due date for one of those big goals is fast approaching on February 1st. My goal by then was to start selling a product through the blog.
The only problem is, I haven’t yet completed my own first product to sell. That’s where Chris Guillebeau comes in to bail me out.
Since I don’t have one of my own products to sell, I reached out to Chris from The Art of Nonconformity and asked if he would be willing to help me.
Chris graciously agreed (that’s the kind of guy he is), and we came up with an awesome special offer for people who buy one of Chris’s Unconventional Guides through me.
If you’ve thought of purchasing one of Chris’s guides before, this is a great chance to pull the trigger now and potentially get some big extras thrown in. If you don’t know who Chris is, I urge you to take a few minutes today and check out his site. You’ll be glad you did.
Check out the full details now and find out what we’re offering
Every creative person, every entrepreneur and everyone who tries something new needs to realize and accept this. Your work is going to suck in the beginning.
Any project or system that involves people, no matter how well-intentioned, eventually loses luster once the initial excitement and momentum wears off. Everything becomes a job after long enough, no matter how infatuated you were in the beginning.
The Work and The Results are two different things. You can’t say “I want to do the results.” You can only say “I’m going to do the work.” You might want to accomplish the results, but results only happen because of the work you do.
View this post on Instagram I’ve dealt with depression my whole life. Sometimes it gets the better of me for weeks or months on end.
Motivation is a funny thing. We can feel sluggish, depressed, tired and unmotivated towards the work we *know* we want/need to get done.
I read last week that a record number of people are leaving their jobs. They’re leaving because we’re in a tight labor market right now, and finding a better job is easy.
