The other day, while sitting at my desk, I looked over at my bookshelf. I do this often. It’s part of how I think. I come across a problem, and I turn my head to the left and gaze at […]


Let me ask you a simple question: what are you doing here? Yes, I mean you. You’ve been combing the internet for months. Maybe even years. You’ve read up on more articles about freelancing than you ever thought could possibly […]

The biggest hurdle I’ve overcome is my own mind. From things I’ve read, heard, & seen related to business, I now have ideas and stories floating between my two ears. Unfortunately, most people don’t know what they’re talking about. Which means […]
