"An entrepreneur defines himself (or herself) for a living."

"An entrepreneur defines himself (or herself) for a living."

"What do you do?"

It was maybe the 20th time I'd been asked that question since walking into the Global Writes Partner Summit. My good friend and fellow author, JoAnn Takasaki, had pulled together all of her vendors and partners and contractors so we could all meet and greet in one place. I had about fifty things booked for that same time on the same day, and almost didn't go. Now I'm ecstatic that I did.

The 3 Commandments of Building an Authority Business

The 3 Commandments of Building an Authority Business

Recently I wrote this post on the Happy Pants Books blog. It outlines what an authority business actually is. 

This is what I do, and it's what I help other people to do. And at the heart of it, the way to make an authority business successful is to focus on three important ideas. I call them the 3 Commandments of an Authority Business.

Slinger News for 18 February 2015

February has been an interesting month, with all the contacts made and the projects that have come my way. I've met some incredibly fascinating people—many of whom I've had the absolute honor to interview for the Wordslinger Podcast. Here are some episodes that are coming up over the next few weeks—

Just because it's easy doesn't mean it's wrong

Just because it's easy doesn't mean it's wrong

Here's irony for you—I spent a huge chunk of my life writing for a living until I could figure out what I wanted to do for a living. 

I kept trying out new careers and new industries, taking new jobs and building new businesses, and all the while doing anything but considering writing as my career. 

What makes it worse is that all the while, I was saying things like, "I wish I could win the lottery or get a job or build a business that gives me the time to just write full time." I kept putting off actually writing, waiting for "some day" to come, so that I could finally start writing.

What a profound disrespect for the skill that has served me so well, all of my life.

3 tips for starting your own free range career

3 tips for starting your own free range career

A lot of the people I interview are "free range humans" (to steal a term from Marianne Cantwell). Essentially, these are the folks who have figured out how to have the ultimate voice in their careers. They decide what they do for a living, how they do it, where they do it, and when they do it. Most of the time, this means working for yourself, which can be trying but almost always amazing.
