“Creating a Side Hustle” with Chris Guillebeau

Author Chris Guillebeau says we should all start something, a freedom project, that you do on your own, aside from your day job, perhaps during the weekend. Research shows that people who have a side hustle were disproportionally happier and satisfied with their lives. You may not make a lot of money from it in the beginning, but it will give you the confidence to move forward with your new 2nd or 3rd source of income.

“Daily Evaluation” with Chris Guillebeau

Author Chris Guillebeau urges us to conduct our own daily evaluation. At the end of the day, ask yourself, "Did today matter?" and answer that question. The goal is to have as many days as possible that are positive, minimize the negative, and build a streak on it. If you spend a little time looking within yourself on these “life evaluations” it will certainly help you live with gratitude. And that starts making a big difference in your personal life going forward.

“Joy, Money, Flow” with Chris Guillebeau

Author Chris Guillebeau says most successful people do not follow a linear path or know what they want to be when they grow up. They make a lot of different decisions and choices; they do a lot of different things, and they even make some mistakes. And despite their diverse backgrounds, genders, and careers, successful people who have career satisfaction have something significant in common. All of these people have crafted a life around these three qualities: Joy, Money, and Flow.

We all have a particular bad habit we'd like to break. Odds are, you've tried in the past, and maybe you were successful for a few days. Then something unexpected came up where you slipped for a day or two. One mistake snowballs into a series of setbacks. Eventually, you give up on the idea of making a habit change simply because it's too difficult to do.

It doesn't matter if you've failed with your habit efforts in the past. It doesn't mean you're lazy or weak-willed. It means you didn't have the right tools for making a lasting habit change.

What you need is a strategy for identifying your worst habits and learning how to overcome them. On this episode, author Steve Scott will help you develop that strategy, based on his book, "Bad Habits No More: 25 Steps to Break ANY Bad Habit."
