Never Put Profits First

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

Most ideas I learned from business books were useless. The rest were downright harmful. Intuition and experimentation have been the best guides. The #1 assumption business books tend to make is that the purpose of running a business is to earn and increase profits. Some books really hammer on this point, as if you’re an […]

Don’t Pay Your Bills

What if you really want to quit your job and go independent, but you’re worried about paying your bills? Today I’m able to enjoy the best of both worlds. My bills are easily paid from my passive income streams, and I get to do work I love and enjoy tremendous freedom. But when I was […]

Marketing Your Product

If you want to start on a serious career path, don’t even think about giving up during the first year. Very little happens during the first year in terms of results. Most businesses aren’t even profitable in their first 2 years; it takes them that long just to become sustainable, even for fairly small businesses. […]

Exercise Your Freedom Fully

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Many people become self-employed to have more freedom and flexibility. Not as many take full advantage of those benefits though. It’s common for people to find themselves self-employed in ways that make them slaves to their desks. They may have removed their old boss, but they ride themselves just as hard as their old boss […]

Branding is Fear-Based B.S.

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Branding, brand management, and brand strategy are rooted in fear and are completely unnecessary. This is true whether we’re talking about business, product, organizational, or personal branding. The primary aim of branding is control. But people don’t generally like to be controlled. So branding is largely done at the subconscious level; if it were done […]

How to Stop Being Disappointed

What many people will do is get angry with the friend who’s frequently late. Does this usually change that person’s behavior? Perhaps […]
