Dear Lifework Journeyer …

Hey there,

Quick question … who are you?

Whether you’ve been intimately involved in one of my programs or are new to the site, I’d love to know a bit about you.

Just leave a comment by scrolling down.

Here are some things you might talk about (but you can say anything you’d like).

Who are you?

What is your life calling and/or what do you love to do most?

Do you have a website we can see and get to know you more? If so, leave a link:

What do you most want to learn (or share) about being self-employed?

What interests you most and how do you incorporate this into your work?

Looking forward to learning more about you!

Cheers,

Amy

    I’m a software developer & IT consultant self-employed, an entrepeneur thinking of growing and doing it step by step, I have several ideas about making business which I hope soon to start one at a time but with the constancy it characterized me…

    Well, I think everything could be growed, right now I’m growing my health, yes, as you read, I used to weight several lb/kg more, since about a year I decided to improve my healt, regain my figure and move far away!

    As I titled my especific objective, I really like a common phrase which you have somewhere in your writtings: “The more you do something, you easier it becomes” it was the wey words bring me to your site and It’s amazing what you write even I haven’t could read every one of your post, but I have learnt of you…as you, I used to “gift” my work when I start working self-employed…the truth is as your friend told you, everything has a value…that’s what we pay for or gain from…

    Do you have a website we can see and get to know you more? If so, leave a link:
    I have a site http://www.estiempo.com.mx where I start up a personal blog in spanish in order to follow and measure my results as an IT project, and it really has helped me to don’t run out of my MAIN objective until I rise it…of course, I have several other objectives but I try to give them some lower priority…

    I’m in the way of learning to do a lot of things at the same time because I used to do everything I choose excellently well, but I have to say some times I lost attention on other things which really are important too, so I’d like to learn of you and your community…by the other side I’d like toi share with all of you how step by step and the way I have achived the resuilts about my project of regaining my figure and more far away…I’m sure as I’m doing it, every one can and of course, apply my way in their personal objectives…the key is mainly the constancy…It applies for our self-employed basis as everything we decide to do…I recommedn you a book:

    Strategic Acceleration, By Tony Jeary… It has helped me in my personal life about my objective mentioned before as in my self-employed job…

    I think right now as I said before, the most important for me is regain my figure (and of course my health) and more far away, really my figure is a consequence of improving my health, my health is the most important, “My health is the bigger treasure God has given me”, sure you’ll be wondering how do I incorporate this in my work, well, my health let me do whatever I need or decide to do, if I am healthy, I can achive EVERYTHING I need, it really doesn’t matter how bigger or difficult it could be, and for example I see from the other side, I apply my work somehow into my healt and reciprocally as I do what I use, I could sell services based on it…and all of the process gives me new ideas to set upon in a near future…

    I hope to hear from you soon…

    Best regards,
    Jorge Ramírez

    I am Laura D’Ambrosio – self employed for most of my career but slowly edging my way from corporate type work to work that is more spiritual in nature.

    I have two sites. One is my blog, a beautiful one that Amy created!
    http://www.simplewholeness.com
    This is where I write and where I will build my personal practice.

    I also have http://www.transformyourlifeandbody.com. Also designed by Amy. It’s not ready for public release yet – so if you look at it, come back in July when we launch our pilot programs.

    Transformyourlifeandbody.com is a joint venture with my friend and business partner, Shannon Leavitt. We help people transform so they can achieve sustainable weight loss and wellness. It’s about practice not perfection.

    I love being self employed. This transition into work that matters to me has been a long, difficult one. I need to keep paying the bills so I get corporate gigs but that reduces my ability to spend time on the businesses. But I believe in where I am going and know I will get there!

    I’m Erika Rae — and in my perfect world, I create a living for myself with *several *self-employment *adventures…

    I’d love to expand my illustration work beyond my current commissions from friends, family, and acquaintances –> to regular work for greeting cards, magazines, and children’s books.

    I’d love to expand my officiating work beyond my current total of 3 weddings and a funeral –> to regular work for all kinds of celebrations and rituals. Amy has created my gorgeous website, which I am still slowly but surely working on: http://erikaeleanor.com/

    And I’d love to expand my writing work beyond my current status of “unpublished” –> to publishing my creative, non-fiction essays in magazines or anywhere!

    Good Luck to all of us!

    Hi Jorge and Laura, interesting that you both talk about health. I like your comment, Jorge, “My health is the bigger treasure God has given me.” Nicely said.

    Erika, I suggest advertising your wedding service to your choir-mates. They’ll love to support you!

    Good luck to all of you.
    Amy
