Today’s (short) update comes to you live from DFW, also known as the Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport. Last night I slept on the floor here after flying in from Seattle prior to a 6am connection this morning.
There’s not a whole lot to say about sleeping on the airport floor, at least in Dallas. Anyway, it’s over, and now I’m flying to Miami and beyond. At the moment I’m posting this, it’s 5:12 a.m. local time, and we’re boarding in 10 minutes. Eventually I’ll get to Cairo and tell you all about that.
But first, I have an important question for you.
In early October, I’m going to launch the next Unconventional Guide. It won’t actually be about sleeping on the floor of the airport – as mentioned, that would be a pretty short guide – but instead, it will be all about money and freedom.
Specifically, I’m writing an extended series of strategies and tactics about Earning Money Without a Job. So far I’m up to 45 pages, so I need to wrap it up soon… but I’m also going to include a series of audio teachings to complement the written materials.
Over the next week I’ll be outlining those audio segments, and I thought I’d ask you this important question:
What do you want to know about earning money without a job?
On any given day, we have a broad readership over here. Some people are already successful entrepreneurs, some people are in the process of starting something for themselves, and others aren’t really interested in that at all.
But for all those differences, a key similarity is that most people, at least those who have sent feedback somewhere along the way, are interested in freedom. For me, having the freedom to set my own schedule and focus on the things I enjoy is by far the greatest benefit of working on my own. As any self-employed person can attest, it’s not always easy, but I think it’s safe to say that it’s always worth it.
I’ll tell you more about the guide in a couple weeks, but one thing I want to make clear is that creating a small, online business is not especially difficult. There are a lot of people doing this who aren’t necessarily smarter than any of the rest of us.
It does require a fair amount of work. If there is a 10-minute secret to wealth creation, I haven’t discovered it yet. I know this project won’t be for everyone, but I do want everyone to know that creating a life of freedom is not an instant process.
If you’d like to contribute, please let me know any or all of the following:
1) Do you have any specific questions about starting an online business?
2) If you currently work at a “real job,” what is confusing to you about people who work for themselves?
3) If you currently work for yourself (in some form or fashion), what were the biggest challenges to getting your cash flow going?
Finally, if you think of anything else that is relevant, send that along too.
You can comment below and I’ll consider using your question or general feedback in the audio materials. RSS and Newsletter folks, that means you have to click through to the site.
(Note that I’m traveling today, so if comments aren’t posted right away, that’s why. They should be up within 24 hours.)
Alternatively, if you don’t want to comment on the site (less than 1% of readers do, but everyone is welcome), then write me from the contact form.
OK, I’m out of time – AA 925 is boarding right now. See you on Friday.
