The Power Of A Good Bridge Job

A few days ago I was heading to dinner with a friend in Soho and we walked past a restaurant called Lure. I said, “I used to work there.”

He said, “You worked there? Really — not that long ago?”

Yup. That wasn’t the only place.

At that particular time, I had three other gigs — outside of my online business — that helped me keep it all together.

One of the biggest obstacles that holds many people back from starting their own business is the fear of not being able to make enough money.

I completely understand that because it was my fear too. That’s why I chose to put my ego to the side, hustle my ass off, and leverage the power of bridge jobs along the way.

Healthy Or Not: 5 Surprising Health Foods You Shouldn’t Eat

Today is the last day of a 14 day detox I’ve been on.

Don’t worry, it wasn’t anything crazy like a  “drop 20 pounds in a week” kind of thing.

Josh put us on it to help us cleanse our livers and reboot our bodies after a fun and indulgent summer.

Now I know food is a highly controversial topic and many people have strong views on what you should and shouldn’t eat.

My guest today is no exception. And you may not agree with all of what she shares.

How to Start an Online Business with No Money or Tech Knowledge

Sometimes, I just have to stop and praise the sweet heavens above that I was born during this particular time in history.

The Internet continues to be something I’m deeply grateful for.

Specifically, I appreciate how this miraculous and magical vehicle revolutionizes the way we think, live, learn, work, create and distribute art, connect to each other and the world, and express ourselves on a daily basis.

My friend Peter Diamandis, author of the fantastic book Abundance writes,

“Right now, a Masai warrior on a mobile phone in the middle of Kenya has better mobile communications than the president did 25 years ago. If he’s on a smart phone using Google, he has access to more information than the U.S. president did just 15 years ago. If present growth rates continue, by the end of 2013, more than 70% of humanity will have access to instantaneous, low-cost communications and information.”

It’s not about your resources, it’s about your resourcefulness. @TonyRobbins Click To Tweet

One of the most exciting things about technology is how, in many ways, it’s leveled the playing field — especially when it comes to entrepreneurship.

The barriers to entry are lower than they’ve ever been. And if you don’t know how to do something, you can start to figure it out — largely for free.

If you, or someone you know, ever finds yourself stopped by a lack of technical know-how or financial resources, this episode of MarieTV is for you.

Chris Guillebeau on The 100 Startup

As I’m writing you, the only sounds I hear are the gentle rustling of bamboo leaves and the song of a happy bird outside my window.

It’s truly a magical summer here in Sag Harbor and I feel extremely grateful to be here and share a bit of my joy with you.

Location freedom is one of the things I wanted most in life. While it took me a number of years to make this a reality, I gotta say it was worth the wait.

The choices we make now affect the opportunities available to us in the future. @ChrisGuillebeau Click To Tweet
