“‘Hey, everyone else is jumping off the bridge. Why aren’t you?'” – Chris Guillebeau
When I started freelancing, I spent a lot of time reading various blogs for inspiration. I felt lost and scattered as I tried to figure out how exactly my non-conventional career should look. As I watched the screening of the documentary I’m Fine, Thanks last week, I found myself wishing I had seen the film years ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRMFEe1Ssso
The film’s major theme? There is no should. What do you want your career to look like? More importantly, what do you want your life to look like? Stop trying to keep up with the Joneses, because the Joneses just might be miserable.
This week, I wanted to share my favorite blogs that inspire me on a daily basis:
