I’ll be a speaker/coach/”trail master” at this year’s Pioneer Nation retreat, hosted by Chris Guillebeau and team on October 1-3, 2015. This year’s event is at The Resort at The Mountain, about an hour from Portland, OR.
Pioneer Nation is for independent entrepreneurs, small business owners and freelancers. It’s a 3-day business retreat focused on what your business needs next, whether you’re just starting at or have been working at it for a while.
Tickets aren’t cheap, but that’s because this is a true retreat, with all 250 participants staying at the same resort for the duration. I’d love to see you there. This is the perfect kind of event to make a real breakthrough in your business. Tickets just opened today and look to be selling fast.
Oh, and October 3rd happens to be my birthday, so you can help me celebrate :)

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.
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.
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.
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.
