Escape for a Life-Changing Weekend or Build Your Small Business: Two Upcoming Events

As mentioned a few days ago, WDS 2017 is sold out, but you can still register for Academies. These are half-day workshops on a variety of topics, ranging from productivity to wellness and everything in between.

We've noticed that Academies are one of the most popular parts of the WDS experience. You'll learn new skills and make new friends. Oh, and if you're traveling in just for Academies, you won't be the only one—every year there are a lot of folks who make the trek.

--> Check out the lineup and join us in Portland next month!

Whether you're part of WDS or not, here are two other events you should consider attending.

These half-day workshops feature some of our favorite alumni speakers and select WDS community members that are experts in their fields. Registration for Academies is separate from WDS itself, and is available to both WDS attendees (at a discounted rate) and to the general public.

This Canadian Woman Is Running a Half-Marathon Every Day for 70 Days in a Row

In January of this year, I heard from Emily Rudow in Toronto. Emily had just finished running 10k (6.1 miles) every day for 31 consecutive days. I thought that was pretty cool!

But it turns out she was just getting started. Emily is now undertaking a much bigger quest: to set a Guinness World Record by running a half-marathon for more consecutive days than anyone else.

Limited Time: The Happiness of Pursuit is Just $1.99!

LINKS: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Indiebound | iBooks

This just in from my publisher: the book version of The Happiness of Pursuit is on sale for $1.99 for a limited time only.

Book prices are set by publishers, not authors, so I don’t control when it’s on sale. But since it's usually $12.99, this might be a great time to buy it. Note that this special pricing may not be available in all markets. (If you're outside the U.S., see if you can buy it from a U.S. retailer, not your local one.) HOP EBOOK

How to be Everything: A guide for those who (still) don’t know what they want to be when they grow up


"What do you want to be when you grow up?"

It's a familiar question we're all eventually asked as kids. While seemingly harmless, the question has unintended consequences. It can make you feel like you need to choose one job, one passion, one thing to be about.

Guess what? You don’t.

Having a lot of different interests, projects and curiosities doesn't make you a "jack-of-all-trades, master of none." Your endless curiosity doesn't mean you are broken or flaky. What you are is a multipotentialite: someone with many interests and creative pursuits. And as Emilie Wapnick would say, that may actually be your biggest strength.

Can You Master “People Skills” By Reading a Book?

Have you ever wished that you could decode people? Do you want a formula for charisma? Do you want to know exactly what to say to your boss, your date or your networking partner? You need to know how people work.

As a human behavior investigator, Vanessa Van Edwards believes that people skills should never be considered "optional." Over the past decade, she's studied the hidden forces that drive our behavior patterns in her lab, the Science of People, and she's developed shortcuts, formulas, and blueprints for getting along with absolutely anyone you may encounter.

Reading the News Makes Me Depressed, but Here’s What I Realized

I used to read the news every day—a lot of news, from a lot of different sources. But after the election, quite frankly, reading the news made me depressed. I went on a media fast and put my head in the sand, largely out of shock and dismay but also for general self-preservation.

As time went by, I struggled a bit with this position. I definitely felt better in not knowing which particular racist or anti-science person was being appointed to various positions of high influence on any given day. And all of a sudden, I had a lot more time!

Still, I didn’t want to be completely uninformed, especially in the midst of our country’s institutions being torn to shreds.

Limited Time: Born for This Is Just $1.99 from Major Booksellers

Link: Get Born For This for $1.99

I just heard from my publisher that they’re running a promotion to discount the digital version of Born for This to just $1.99. The book has never been discounted before, and it won’t be repeated anytime in 2017 (and maybe not after that).

This is my most personal book yet, but it’s not really about me—it’s about how to find the work you were meant to do.
