Paperback Writer

25 November 2013

Last week, I wrote about how I’m trying to focus on just one thing at a time in my professional life. Instead of tackling many projects at once — preventing me from giving my full attention to any of them — I’m instead devoting my attention to a single job. It makes me happier and […]

One Thing at a Time

21 November 2013

I wrote recently that I’ve begun the Scrawny to Brawny fitness regimen. After ten days, I like it — but I also find it a little frustrating. I want more to happen NOW! but instead must wait patiently as the program guides me through gradual change. You see, the folks who designed Scrawny to Brawny […]

Giving Without the Expectation of Return

30 July 2013

Well, it’s official. Yesterday I signed the contract to resume writing at Get Rich Slowly. I’ll be supplying a minimum of two articles per month, though I hope to write more. In return, I’ll be paid nothing. To some, this seems crazy. To others, it seems like I’m being a sucker. To me, it sounds […]

Expertise and Expectations: Thoughts on Success — and What Comes After

25 July 2013

One of my favorite parts about working on the World Domination Summit is getting to know the speakers. This year, for instance, I fostered friendships with radio journalist Tess Vigeland and blogger/entrepreneur Jia Jiang. Earlier this month, both spoke from the WDS main stage. Tess shared her story of leaping without a safety net; Jia […]

How Do You Find Your Passion?

22 May 2013

Last night, I had dinner with a long-time Get Rich Slowly reader. Amy is traveling the West Coast with her mother, and they’ve made their way to Portland after stopping at San Francisco, Yosemite, and Crater Lake. Amy and I spent two hours chatting about her life and about mine. As we talked, we realized […]

A Store That Sells Financial Advice?

06 May 2013

A good friend emailed me looking for financial advice the other day. Pam wrote: A friend of mine is getting married this summer and…blah blah blah. [The main story/question in Pam’s email isn’t germaine to this article. Plus it’s private.] My friend really wants a financial planner-type person to help them, but she realizes those […]

On the Link Between Careers and Passion

13 November 2012

“The path to a passionate life is often way more complex than the simple advice ‘follow your passion’ would suggest.” — Cal Newport As one of my tasks for World Domination Summit, I recently rewatched recordings of every main-stage speaker. Though all of the speakers were great, Cal Newport’s talk has been most on my […]

Better Use of Leisure Time: Self-Improvement Tips from 1950

14 October 2007

I’ve written before about how profitable it can be to use your free time to engage in money-making hobbies. But even if your hobbies don’t earn you money directly, you can still use them to develop useful skills, skills that may help you earn more down the road. From 1950, here’s a short film describing […]

Drama in Real Life: “You’re Fired!”

13 September 2007

We just fired an employee. Letting a person go is never an easy thing, especially at a small family business like ours. We treat our employees well, and relate to them as real men and women instead of cogs in a machine. But there are times when an employee just isn’t working out, and we’ve […]
