I hate to break this to you, especially here ...
I distinctly remember how excited I was about the Internet back in 1994, as primitive as it was then. My fascination dated back to reading William Gibson novels in the 1980s, long before I ever owned a computer. Starting in 1998, I began the Internet lifestyle. Once I started publishing online, I effectively started living …

From freelancer, to online course creator, to successful software-as-a-service startup.
Freelancing is often the first step for many an entrepreneurial journey. It’s usually the case when someone realizes they’re the type who enjoys starting businesses more than anything else. Laura Roeder is one of those types of people. She leapt out of the world of employment without a net, managing to land on her feetPlay Episode

Talking about finding the necessary cash ...
In today’s media climate of irrational entrepreneurial exuberance, it’s all about raising that venture capital. Reality, however, is much different. Most businesses, especially of the freelance and solopreneur variety, will never raise money from investors, nor should they. Bootstrapping is even making a comeback that resembles a movement in reaction to the silliness of thePlay Episode

Whether solo or CEO, the concept of the side hustle is always there.
Most people get started “on the side” before going solo or founding a startup. More and more people have a side hustle going on just to make ends meet. Fact is, once you’re on your own, you’re likely doing one thing in order to do the next bigger and better thing. Even larger companies leveragePlay Episode

Greetings from sunny Southern California and the last day of my vacation (it’s been unseasonably hot … but it’s still hard to complain). Thanks for letting me have last week off, I truly needed the break. But now, alas, it’s time to jump on a plane back home. Enjoy this week’s issue while I’m up …

Note: This is the last issue of Further for the year. Details at the end.

Straight talk about the detox craze, plus 9 other resources for living your best life.
Seems everyone has their favorite detox method, from Beyonce to Dr. Oz. And in case you’re confused, this has nothing to do with attending celebrity rehab. From juice cleanses, to brown rice diets, to elaborate colonic procedures, people are aiming to remove unhealthy toxins from the body as a way to kickstart better health. It’s …

12 great resources for myth busting and living your best life. Snag the email option to never miss a thing!
I’ll admit, before I started Further I didn’t have much use for personal development stuff. Being in the online publishing business, I found the endless parade of platitudes and shallow advice to be fairly inconsequential. My attitude was probably a bit cynical. But people who think the latest mind hack, two-day seminar, or inspirational guru …

Finally ... a reason to make a Joe Walsh reference.
Isn’t it odd that some people seem to seek out anger and offense? It’s as if the lack of something to complain about is a vacuum that nature abhors. Maybe it’s people who think that Starbucks switching to a red cup is somehow killing Christmas. Or maybe it’s the reaction to people who think a …
