Hey! Nobody Cares What You Do! (Depressing, Until You Realize It’s POWER.)

In: Hate Your Job?

It’s really easy to assume that other people know what’s best for us.

The people above. The ones in charge. The bosses, the decision makers, the collective “they.”

We do what they ask, eat what they serve us, follow their guidelines, take their word, accept things at face value, and believe that someone, out there, is looking out for our best interests. Isn’t that what the government is for? Isn’t that what the big, faceless organizations are for? Aren’t there important people in charge tasked with babysitting the population at large?

It’s comforting to think that someone else is responsible for making the rules. It’s even more soothing to believe that society takes cares of its own.

But nobody cares what you’re doing.

No one’s going to tell you that your job is beneath you, or you should really have some blood work done, or that fatigue you’re feeling every day actually means something. It is 100,000% on you to trust yourself enough to figure out what’s wrong in your life—and then take steps to make it right.

Scary, right?

We’ve never had so much responsibility.

But we also never had so much fucking power.

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

You Find Peace With Your Work Through Tension

It’s never as scary as it seems. Everything you’re worried about happening? Won’t. It might seem intimidating, the world—putting yourself out there, taking the chance, trying something new, going all in, showing up, asking for help, connecting with strangers, and, ultimately, gambling your ego and everything you know to be true. There will be a […]

I Became an Entrepreneur Because My Life Stopped Being Fun

I’m in the airport, on my way to London. London is officially my favorite city in the world because it’s the one place where I don’t feel like an overdressed moron. (Try going anywhere in Costa Rica with even so much as kitten heels and YOU WILL LOOK RIDICULOUS.) I’ll be there all summer, excited […]

Don’t Sell Your Soul—Sell Your SKILLS.

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 […]

“I Want to Do Something Else…But What?” Welcome To The Fucking Question That Everyone Is Asking Themselves.

I have a dirty little hypothesis. It’s about the discontent. The unrest. This global epidemic that’s happening behind closed doors of women wanting something else. It’s why the LuLaRoe, the Advocare, the Younique. It’s why books like Eat, Pray, Love became bestsellers. It’s why we’re spending so much time on the Internet, too, and drinking […]
