Big Girl Business Panties

Today, I had (for the hundred-thousandth time since staring my business) the following conversation: Random Stranger — So what do you do for a living? Me — Today? Today I’m a writer. Tomorrow I’ll be an organizer. And the next day Imma be an artist. That’s what “working for me” looks like in my world….

So you’re looking to eliminate a few of those less-than-constructive-oh-my-god-I-need-to-stop-doing-that habits from your life. Go Team You! (And not that I don’t trust you to goal-set like a boss — but just to be on the safe side, let’s make sure you’re doing this mess the right way. M’kay?) Humor me with a look at…

Travel looks very different for a full-time RVer (like me) than a weekend warrior. Sure, I enjoy the same vacationy-type activities as my sunburnt-tourist compadres — biking, swimming, canoeing, torching hot dogs, throwing up on roller coasters. But at the same time, I’m still managing the daily grind that those escape-artists are trying so desperately…

We all know someone (maybe you) who hates his/her job — but as it turns out, the things 9-to-5-types value most aren’t what you’d imagine. While yes-of-course-in-a-perfect-world it would be nice to make crapton more money, the vast majority of complaints are tied to issues of autonomy and recognition. Moral of the story? The best…

January’s an innately-emotionally-significant month (either time for a black-and-blue-beating over the last 12-month’s up-screwage — or a tabula-rasa-chance to forgive mistakes, start fresh, and take another stab at whatever-it-was-that-didn’t-quite-happen-the-way-you-wanted in the past year). I’m betting you lean more toward the first option. (You know how I know this about you? Because you’re human — and…

The other day (while toilet-deodorizer-shopping), I had a weekend-warrior-type ask where my rig was parked. I said I was full-timing at blah-de-blah-RV-resort — he responded, “I’ve never camped there before.” I smiled conspiratorially, gave an Eric-Idle-worthy nudge-nudge-wink-wink, and replied, “Neither have I!” Poor dude raised a confused eyebrow, looked at me quizzically, then pulled out…

I’ll tell you right now, self-employment is not a bailiwick for the faint of heart. Entrepreneurship may be your irrefutable vocational calling, your incontrovertible career destiny, your undisputed-predetermined-occupational-inevitability — but it’s also hard freaking work! You will (quite regularly) be shoved (rather violently) outside your comfort zone — I’m talking a-show-no-mercy-Gorilla-Monsoon-style-fireman-carry-airplane-spin-death-valley-driver mat throw. You’ll be handed…

I’m sure you’ve heard this bedtime story before: In 1953 a team of researchers interviewed Yale’s graduating seniors, asking if they’d written a clearly-defined list of what they wanted to achieve in life. A decade later, those social scientists tracked down the same cohort — they found that the 3% with specific goals had accumulated…

Some folks are perfectly content to live in the same nesting-staycationing-never-venturing-more-than-ten-miles-from-home-locale their entire lives. And I wish ’em well — tucked up all warm and snug on the couch mit blankie and cocoa. Just leaves more world for me to see! I inherited busy feet from my father — that man could not sit still…

I know, I know. You work for someone else, hate your job, and are convinced that auto-employment will solve all your problems — magically propelling you into a utopia of boundless self-determination where the guy in the next cube never borrows your stapler. A paradise of unending spare time (and all the web porn you…
