Do you have an idea for a business? Or you’re already in business to some degree, but things aren’t where you’d like them to be?
I’ve got a great resource for you in today.
I am admittedly not…a planner. Making plans feels like being tied down, and I like spontaneity. Each day, I want to decide whatever the heck I feel like doing. And instead of taking time to plan, I’d rather just work on building and launching stuff. > read more

Recently a friend and past Free Agent Academy member Jason Garey posted an audio on Facebook and tagged me. I try to at least check in on anything someone directs towards me, so I clicked the link and an audio immediately started playing. Seeing it was just over 4 minutes, I let it keep going.
The message that followed more than inspired me…it gave me something to ASPIRE to.
It’s an excerpt from a conference talk given by John Fancher, shared by Perry Marshall, both internet marketing experts. It was titled The most amazing, must unusual tribute, and the subject is Walt Whitman.
What you first hear will give you an initial perspective, which will be significantly altered at the end. Here you go: > read more

During my many years of walking with people in the pursuit of self-employment, I’ve worked with a lot of single people. In the past week alone, I’ve had personal video-consultations with four singles (members of Free Agent Academy), three never married, one divorced.
For this specific commentary, I’m not including single parents. Some of the ‘tips’ are relevant, some are not (see ‘Pressure’).
At face value, you’d generally expect someone who is single to have a much easier time of pursuing a big endeavor such as becoming self-employed. They have far fewer demands on their time and money, the very things most married-with-family folks blame as primary obstacles!
What I’ve found however, is the lack of pressure is the biggest challenge for singles. > read more

It feels harsh at first, but then, oh so hopeful…
Check out this writing from Frederick Buechner, one of my fave authors, it’s an excerpt from his book, ‘The Alphabet of Grace’:
“I say that feet are very religious too. I say that if you want to know who you are, if you more than academically interested in that particular mystery, you could do a lot worse than look to your feet for an answer. Introspection in the long run doesn’t get you very far because every time you draw back to look at yourself, you are seeing everything except for the part that drew back, and when you draw back to look at the part that drew back to look at yourself, you see again everything except for what you are really looking for. And so on. Since the possibilities for drawing back seem to be infinite, you are, in your quest to see yourself whole, doomed always to see infinitely less than what there will always remain to see. Thus, when you wake up in the morning, called by God to be a self again, if you want to know who you are, watch your feet. Because where your feet take you, that is who you are.” > read more

Is there really, honestly a chance you could live outside of the norm and have a successful business of your own, doing something you truly care about and serving people? With time flexibility and immense freedom? Even…getting wealthy amidst it?
Of course you expect me to say yes and to pummel you with inspiration, motivation, exhortation and support from many pithy platitudes and quotes, right? > read more
