Abundant Content is a heart-based business – brains and technical savvy are kind of par for the course, but I’ve found so much here that speaks to who we are as people in this world, too. It’s important to me that my business is run ethically and transparently in all ways, which is why I choose my clients carefully. Articles such as this one can be big bridges for me, especially since I’m fond of reinventing myself whenever life calls for it – it’s a courageous way to live, sure, but it can also bring about deep periods of inertia. Julia Cousens offers some incredibly valuable advice for surviving these periods of feeling like you’re waiting for life to begin. This author’s story is so similar to ours!
For a moment I got swept up in the fervor. I probably opted-in to someone’s mailing list for a second, and I did run out and get myself a Chromebook (because honestly – the places I like to travel, I’d rather someone stole my Chromebook), envisioning that eventually I, too, would be traveling with my wife somewhere even more awesome than where we already live, and in the mornings my wife would go for a run and grab something fun for breakfast and my daughter would have some super cool local nanny person a few hours every day so I could work my entrepreneurial magic via Chromebook and she could learn Spanish (or Portuguese or French or Croatian or Samoan or…) by immersion.
A few weeks ago I posted a set of free resources for your blog, and this week I’ve compiled a few more.
Most of today’s free resources have to do with generating ideas, because (yep), I was having a really hard time coming up with some new ones. And as I mentioned in my last post, one of the biggest reasons I seem to have a difficult time drumming up ideas is because I’m terrified of just repeating what’s already been said three thousand times.
Moments ago, I was so struck by this quote from Carl Sagan I felt compelled to write. It sent me down an amazing path of self-inquiry.
