i didn’t win
A few months ago, I entered a writing contest. That was a new (and scary) thing for me to do. Because I don’t usually write about anything other than what you see here. I wrote in a new genre for me. It’s kind of like listening to your favourite rock n’ roll singer try their […]
claim your career bliss: interview with geekstar paul jarvis
“[Entrepreneurs and solo-preneurs]* are afraid to be themselves in their work. They think [being authentic] isn’t professional, that people won’t like them, that their personality won’t match with everybody else’s. I know that my personality doesn’t match with everybody. And I’m happy about that . It’s how I know that who is working with me […]
what was i thinking (when i decided to become an entrepreneur)?
So you’re considering entrepreneurship and thinking to yourself: “What am I thinking? I must be crazy!” Starting a business seems so risky after all.

She’d once again left a job to “just clear her head,” confident that she just needed a few months off. […]
claim your career bliss: interview with Chief Penguin Michael Katz
“You have to be willing to accept a pretty big element of ‘we don’t know how this story is going to turn out.’ And I’m not a risk-taker, maybe it looks like I am, but I’m really not … but I have definitely learned to go with the scary choice. If the less scary choice […]
claim your career bliss: interview with Life Coach Tim Brownson
“We ask ourselves: ‘What will I do with my money to make me happy?’ A better approach is to find out what makes you happy and then work out what minimum amount of money you need to do the thing that actually means you’re happy … Bliss is doing the thing you’d do anyway.” –Tim […]
