Today I just have a quick question for you. I tend to write a lot about earning a living online here at Free Pursuits because that’s where I personally work. However, I know that some of you reading this also have lifestyle design plans that involve an “offline” job like teaching, guiding tours, etc.
I would really appreciate if you let me know your plans in the comments. Just a quick answer of online or offline with some brief details would be great. If you’re already earning a living in a way that will or does support your ideal lifestyle, you can comment about what that currently is.
(In your ideal lifestyle) are you planning to earn a living online or off?

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.
Motivation is a funny thing. We can feel sluggish, depressed, tired and unmotivated towards the work we *know* we want/need to get done.

Tell me if this sounds familiar. You start working on a new task, which requires you to do some research or look something up.
