The You Are Free Manifesto Excerpts

As you know, on the website, there is a whole page dedicated to The You Are Free Manifesto. Here are some excerpts to think about this week:

Find your talents.
Use your gifts.
Create work you love. Love your work.

Do what YOU want to do, not what others say you should do.

When they tell you you can’t, do it anyway. Prove them wrong.

Break the rules.
Make it up.

Invest your intellectual property wisely and always get a return on your investment.

Be free.

I invite you to go to the website to see the full version of The You Are Free Manifesto. And, I’d love to know what you think.

A Personal Note From Me

Today, I want to touch base with you, on a more personal note.

I have spent the month of September working from my mountain office in North Carolina, where my husband and I traveled to in order to escape Hurricane Irma. (No damage to our house, but massive flooding in our hometown.) It’s so beautiful up here, it’s hard to leave. I love having a lifestyle business, one that works with my lifestyle because after all, as Chief Freedom Officer of, it’s important to be free to do what works for me. If I am going to model that for you.

Here’s a picture of the view off our deck…this is why it’s so hard to leave…

Mountain View
Working in this beautiful place doesn’t keep me from doing business elsewhere. Last weekend, I flew to Chicago where I gave a very brief presentation on The Changing World of Work – at the Chicago Business Traveler’s Association. Met a lot of great people. Learned some. Thank you, Wayne! If there are any others out there who would like to hear what I have to say about today’s marketplace and your place in it, please let me know. I am looking for speaking opportunities and the chance to spread the You Are Free message.

On Sunday, I saw a coy-wolf, literally a mixed breed of a coyote and a wolf. You can google this for yourself, but this animal looked like a coyote trapped in a wolf’s body. It looked to be as big as my 135 pound mountain dog, Pasha. It’s the second time I’ve seen this creature. Sorry I don’t have a picture to share. I was so stunned to see this amazing animal at 12 noon in the broad daylight that I didn’t have the wherewithal to snap a picture. But, again, you can google it.

We have updated and reformatted the website, in part to make it more mobile-friendly. You might want to take a look. There is some new information there.

Thanks for listening today,
