The Entrepreneurial Free Agent and Dejobbed Small Business R&D Lab
Enter the world of the joyfully jobless. Does this mean you do not work? No! You determine what you like to do. You find those functions at which you are talented.
You integrate what you like to do with your particular talents. And, you break down the mental barriers to being your own boss.
It's a lifestyle that I believe is available to anyone willing to work for it and bring their own passion, enthusiasm and willingness to experiment to building the business of their dreams. (B. J. Winters, August 22, 1999)
This sounds a little like Do What you Love, the Money Will Follow. Both authors agree that you must find what you love to do then go on out and do it. But Barbara Winter offers direction on how to discover what it is you love. There are interactive tests, self-evaluations, charts, and checklists. Case studies drive it all home.
For the Sohodojo community, the chapter on creating multiple profit centers is right up the nanocorp alley. Most self-employed and other-employed people think in terms of single income sources. They do one thing (one site, or one store, or one service) and work like crazy to make it successful.
The nanocorper creates multiple profit centers, multiple income sources -- not one BIG thing -- on which to base success. These multiple income sources embrace, promote, and demand diversity -- the range of possible income sources is limited only by the nanocorper's imagination, self confidence and willingness to experiment and explore.
This guide to working for yourself, to being your own boss and to becoming successful being self-employed should be in the hands of every nanocorp want-to-be and corporate day dreamer wishing to quit.
