The scary responsibility of self-employment

My Grandpa ran a farm, just like his dad and grandfather and great grandfather and most of our ancestry. Most of your’s too I assume. I wrote about my Grandpa in a popular blog on Nov. 19, 2010 following his death and funeral, “A true free agent legacy, Ray Miller“. The old farm is pictured above.

There were different types of farms and people ran them in different ways. But what ran true was, the owners had full responsibility for results. Well, aside from the weather that blessed or cursed their efforts.

The weight of it all was on them.

Today, few of us know, or want…this type of weight. Continue reading

The business of infopreneuring

July 16, 2014 | 24 comments. | Comment on this post

Hope word with shadow, backgroundOver 15 years ago, Harry Beckwith published, ‘Selling the Invisible’. It was a commentary on the move from selling hard goods and manufacturing, to selling services.

In this internet marketing age we’ve seen an immense upsurge in ‘Selling Hope’.

It took me a while to see this. I thought I was selling solutions. ‘How to become self-employed!’ I was fervent about pushing people along. Finding their motive, finding a viable idea, creating it into an offering, launching it and them becoming free agents!

As time went on, I realized how many people had been paying me $95 per month for three years or more. I’d check their member profiles and see zero activity for months, if not a year. This left me feeling flat-out guilty. Continue reading

Will you embrace your art?

May 27, 2014 | 5 comments. | Comment on this post

Creativity in businessI just finished an interview with John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire fame, who is often sitting at #1 in Business Podcasts. Our interview goes live June 25th, you can bet I’ll let you know!

In the interview, the quote from me that John really grasped onto was, “Will people embrace their art?!”

Seth Godin, arguably today’s most prolific voice in and for business, has given much focus to the term ‘art’ in recent times, and it profoundly resonates with me. In regards to myself and over 1,000 people I’ve walked with in the past five years desiring free agency, at the core we all want to deliver something of ourselves to the world. A product, service or message that fulfills a desire or solves a problem for others.

Want me to personally help you deliver your art?>

Divine Disgust & ‘To The Pain!’

wesleyThis is my Free Agent Academy member’s class this week, but after finishing it, felt it was relevant for all…

PREFACE
Many of you are probably like myself, and far too hard on yourselves. We all need more…grace. For ourselves and others.

So first, take a deep breath. And repeat, “I’m good enough. I’m smart enough. And doggone it, people like me.” – Stuart Smalley

Seriously, you are amazing. Me too.

WITH THAT SAID…

This is not about who you are as a whole. You do a ton. More than most probably. But…regarding your work…

I want to focus on our frustration. As I write, I’m focusing on my own.

Right here, right now, I’m betting you have a fairly decent measure of frustration inside of you, if you get real about it. Continue reading

I don’t care to be a success

May 01, 2014 | 18 comments. | Comment on this post

????????????????????????I really don’t. All the books and blogs and podcasts ‘how-tos’ on SUCCESS just don’t motivate me at all.

This hit me during a recent Free Agent Academy class. Members were talking about their motives for pursuing self-employment. People got so excited talking about having more time for family, being able to create something themselves and not being hindered by the confinements of traditional employment.

But when the topic of ‘being a success’ was brought up, it was a buzz kill. It just wasn’t something anyone cared about. Continue reading
