Every Man Wants To Be Free, Until He Has To Do The Things Men Must Do To Free Themselves!

     Every Man Wants To Be Free, Until He Has To Do The Things Men Must Do To Free Themselves! I freed myself from the gilded cage of faux “Job Security” because it has never existed for anyone I have ever known. I work for myself. My good name and reputation are the only things I have ever needed for true job security.

     Being a Freelancer and Digital Nomad isn’t just for people traveling the world. I know quite a few successful people who work from home and use the internet as a secondary, supplemental, or only source of income.

How To Write.

I have helped quite a few friends get started writing; I show them the easy part first. That’s how to set up WordPress or how to Podcast. It takes an hour to learn, maybe a few more minutes if I didn’t explain well. 

The hard part comes later, after the first few posts/articles/podcasts are published. We all have 4-5 great stories in our heads. After that, we have to dig. The writing process is easier now than it ever has been in the past.

-> This is the easiest, most effective, laziest way to write! <-

Men: Build / Create / Make Something.

For me its Blacksmithing, for you it may be painting, building car engines, carpentry, or pottery. Whatever it is, take on task that leaves you with something you can sign your name to and be proud of. Even if it’s ugly! I’ve made a lot of ugly knives, but I treat them all with the same love and respect as I sharpen and shine them. I never sell them or make them for money. Instead, I give them to special friends who I want to have a priceless gift, or trade them to friends for other things they have made with their own hands.  Whats made is always valued more than what’s bought!

Men: Be Shark Minded!

Thesis Statement

To be a Man you have to be a predatory learner. A Mans mind must eat like the shark, always moving and looking to devour. A basic rule is to read at least one non-fiction book per month. If you read a second book, read whatever you like. Your reading a non-fiction book is like finishing your vegetables at dinner before your parents allow you to eat dessert.  Remember

Creating The Ocean You Swim In: The Crayola Edition

I’ll kill two birds with one stone this time, The Science and The Art.

First, I’m going to break down how I grow my social circle, because quite a few of my friends ask me how it’s done. Then, I’ll walk you through one of my favorite projects and show you how to pull it off by yourself or with friends. I call it creating the ocean I swim in. Just like an ocean of colors on the canvas, I’ve created an ocean of colorful people who blend together well while keeping their own unique vibrancy. Meltdown in 5…4…3…2…1 ~>

Men: Do Something Painful & Seek Discomfort

Thesis Statement

For Men, spirituality is a means to an end that manifests in the physical world, even though it begins and ends in his mind. Men achieve spirituality through action. These actions have the *side effect* of attracting women and being invited into the company of other successful Men. She got what she asked for, but perhaps not what she wanted.

The Yangtse Evening Post (Chinese: 扬子晚报)

I’ve been hired as a syndicated columnist for the Yangtse Evening Post!

Thank you to everyone who reads my posts and shares what I write.  After reviewing what I do here, and sampling a few writings specifically for the YEP, I was asked to do a regular column.  The only stipulation they had was that I limit myself to 50 words per article. It’s a challenge!
