Don’t Sell Your Soul—Sell Your SKILLS.

In: Hate Your Job?

Everybody knows how to do something, and that includes you.

And guess what?

That means you can teach someone else.

And whatever you can teach someone, you can sell to someone.

…And I say that without a shred of snake oil. Knowledge is what makes our world go ‘round. Now, more than ever, you can build a business in which your know-how is the product.

You don’t need a store front. You don’t need any investors. And you definitely don’t have to be the next Harry the Great in order to be “qualified enough” to teach something you know—you just have to be someone who cares enough to.

Knowledge is the hottest product out there, and we’ve all got inventory.

Most people just let it sit in the warehouse of their minds, never realizing there’s a marketplace.

Stop Waiting to “Be Ready.” Or “Have Your Ducks in a Row.” Or Until the Baby is Born, or the House is Built, or the Kids Are Older / More Independent / Less of a Pain in the Ass.

I hear people talk about job security all the time, as if this were a real thing. But people really seem to like the concept, you know? I mean, I can’t think of anything more comforting than 40 years of standing in an elevator every day with Lou from HR. <Wide, delirious eyes.> I’m not […]

Here’s an Opportunity – TAKE IT

I’ve got a theory. Don’t tell anyone, because if they take it to heart, they might get even better at this business thing, and then what’s going to happen is that one year from now, you’ll somehow find yourself eating red velvet cupcakes at their book signing instead of your own, except you won’t just be […]

Make Something That Matters

Things aren’t always what they seem. An email list full of 100,000 people is meaningless if only 100 of those people open the emails. Similarly, an email list of 100 people, with 100 of those people opening them, does mean something. Who is more successful? And who is doing something that actually matters?

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait for No One

Here’s a principle I vehemently disagree with: Good things come to those who wait. You know who probably came up with that stylish piece of wisdom? Someone in a position of power, tasked with managing the masses and getting them to obey orders. You can hear a teacher saying that, can’t you? Now, there, little […]

Starting a Business Isn’t for Weak People, Shitty People, Irresponsible People, Undisciplined People, Stupid People, Forgetful People, Lazy People, Irrational People, Impatient People, or People Who Blame Everything on Obama.

Nearly ten years ago when I started my first copywriting business, I struggled with the things most new business owners struggle with: Telling a client your fees while silently thinking shitshitshitshitshitshitshit!
