Business Minimalism: the new way I’m doing business

What online dating is teaching me about my online business

For the past few months, I've been going on a whole heap of dates. It's been fun, awkward, confusing, uncomfortable, exciting, nerve-wracking and it's shone a big bright light on my shit (kinda like how it can feel to have your own biz). I recently went on a date with...

One chapter ends, another begins

I’ve spent the last two months at an eco-village in Vanuatu, disconnected from the outside world. It was by complete and perfect synchronicity that I ended up here just at the time when I needed it most. A friend of a friend told me about Eden Hope late last year, the...

How I turned my podcast into a business
