Need to access your genius? Here’s how.

In my work lately, I've been seeing the same questions arise: I have this idea but I'm stuck. How do I continue? Or How do I know this is the right idea? I understand these concerns. I like to get things done, so when an idea shows up, I want answers on how to implement, what structures are needed and the rest. My mind is active, and it likes to solve puzzles. It also enjoys…

The truth about road-trip workations

Many many people have an ideal in their mind: "I want to work and travel. It will be SO AWESOME!" And in many ways this is true: no fluorescent office when all you need is sleep, no 8 blanket work-hours whether the work requires it or not… but for those of you who are not familiar with the lifestyle, here are some not so hot truths about travel-working that you should consider before heading out…

Chill out on the “How’s”

I love all the struggle associated with running your own gig. And by "love", I really mean "laugh at", because things just don't have to be that horrific, difficult, full of struggle and misadventures. Unless you want them, that is. (And most of us unconsciously do so end up receiving them regularly.) The question I find driving most up-and-coming businesses (especially when they're called to define, refine and solidify their ideas), is: But HOW will…

Humility: the (mostly) missing clarifier

I just returned from Chris Gillebeau's World Domination Summit, a wonderful gathering of like-minded service-centered entrepreneurs, and something kept coming up for me as I sat listening to people's stories and meeting folks: Humility. It struck me that while I met many amazing, humble folks, many people have trouble hitting this beautiful mid-point in their work, and it's a huge, vital piece of a successful business. Most people seem to teeter between a lack of…

Celebrate your victories (and failures)

It's Monday, and I'm in San Diego. As I adjust to the time and the absence of people outside my window, I look at my calendar and see all the ticks on the checkboxes next to completed projects. My heart does a little dance. I also see all the unchecked boxes next to big projects that still await my love and attention, and I realize that without taking a break to breathe and celebrate what's…

Failure, J.K. Rowling style

As is the case with millions of people globally, I love J.K. Rowling and her work. Her stories are insanely captivating and span age groups. Her empire grosses in the billions AND she lives in Edinburgh, one of my most favorite places in the world. I'd say that's success. Watching an interview she did with Oprah in August of 2011, I am moved deeply by her "failures". It's what we call things when life looks…

Not Cool: Adding People to Your List Without Permission

I met this nice man some weeks back who needed a site. Cool. Let's talk. We have a nice chat, he needs to think about it. Great. No worries. Next thing I know, I get a newsletter from his business trying to sell me something. Umm, wait. What? *scratched record sound* I didn't sign up for anything. I'm not interested in anything that business does as a consumer. So why am I getting this SPAM?…
