Or at least give you the best chance at it.
Many folks want to pursue self-employment but don’t have their spouse’s support. As much as I motivate folks to defy all obstacles to self-employment, I learned the hard way never to defy your spouse.
My wife Teri and I are on the beach for a week celebrating our 20th anniversary, but took a break from our ‘break’ to do this week’s Free Agent Academy member’s class together. And for the first time, we invited the general public to listen in. > read more

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

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

Just the statement and thought alone, is daunting and convicting,
“This was his life’s work.”
What will it be? What will I have to show for it? Will it be…anything? At the end, will I have achieved a LIFE’S WORK, or just a…life of work? > read more

My brother Jared always felt a pull to serve and give to the ‘least of these’. Literally, the most downtrodden. From homeless people when he was a kid, giving them every cent he had, to ultimately, prostitutes in Rwanda. Today he lives in Mombasa, Kenya, where he and his wife Ilea have devoted themselves to north Africa at large.
Jared comes from the same Caucasian parents I do, and we were raised together in Kentucky suburbia. Jared is just not at home in America. The poorest people here are wealthy by global standards, with a glut of opportunity and every resource at their fingertips. He has no more desire to serve the American population than he does to donate money to Donald Trump. > read more
