For the Love of Everything Vodka: Do You Even *Like* the Work That You’re Doing???

In: WTF Am I Doing With My Career?

I want you to really think about that for a second. Because the thing is, the Internet’s given us a fucking BUFFET of opportunity—you can start any business you want with $20, these days–but like a kid in a candy store who walks in and just starts gobbling up whatever worms are in front of his face, we, too, walked into the Internet and we were all like GIMMIE, GIMMIE, GIMMIE, GIMMIE.

And that means that there are a lot of folks out there doing things that they don’t even want to be doing, “because the timing was right” or “because they just sort of fell into it” or “because it just made sense at the time.”

Do yourself a favor: honor your curiosities.

Don’t be a slave to a business or a job that you don’t even like anymore. Don’t let the responsibilities of the past become your ankle weights of the future. Don’t assume that it’ll work itself out, or you haven’t given it enough time yet.

You have.
You’re done.
Be done.
Let it go.

And move on to something that makes you a more passionate person tomorrow—not a shell of a person who once was.

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! Having no idea if your fees are too high or too low or WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSE TO BE CHARGING?! Constantly worried […]

Dream Zappers, Thought Terrorists, and Why You Should Be Weary of Anyone Who Tells You “I’m Just Looking Out for You”

OKAY. I just have to say this before I freaking hurl a tray of freshly-baked carrot fries across the room. (What? They’re good. SPRINKLE THEM WITH SOME CUMIN.) So today at 8:32am I got a text from a friend—like, an actual, IRL friend—who is thinking about registering for B-School tomorrow (since she, like so many […]

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 […]
