Sometimes I’m so eager to get someone to work with me that I give them advice for free. Then they don’t hire me.
This has been a problem for me my whole working life.
People keep talking to me about energy. And I don’t get it.
A week ago I wrote a post on my new blog: “Not Enough Time in the F*cking Day”. I chose the cruder title because I was frustrated that I once again failed to achieve what I wanted to achieve in my self-imposed 7 or 8 ish hour work day.
I’m sitting here, listening to free jazz (because I’m that person), wondering where the day went.
It’s 4:45PM and I feel like I’ve done nothing.
I have been neck deep in Google Analytics for the last 8 years.
I don’t know about you, but virtually every single self-help book I’ve ever read, regardless of subject, has been muddled by some extremely confused or downright horrifying metaphysics.
They’re often full of great pieces of practical advice and then messy spirituality gets in the way and often ruins or at least greatly subtracts from the point.
This is true of every self help book I’ve ever read.
Every. Single. One.*
And this book, a pretty unconventional business self-help book, is no exception.
When I launched my own business I had some idea of what I was doing: I wanted to help people avoid the same mistakes the business I then worked for had made. I wanted to show people that they could market their businesses online themselves, without resorting to 4- or 5- digit retainers to some agency that over-promised and under-delivered.
