Over the past 5 years I’ve done consulting, coaching, I’ve written 2 books and created an online course — and experimented with quite a few other things — and I’m often asked: ‘How do you stay motivated to do what you do?’

My simple answer is that it doesn’t feel like work. It’s freakin’ hard and challenging sometimes but when I’m in my own rhythm — my own unique creative & focused flow — it feels natural to me to follow my ideas. It has become non-negotiable.

Is the marketing side tough? Yes.

Is the tech side tough? Absolutely, yes.

Have I nailed my business model yet? No.

Have I hit 6 figures yet? No.

So how the hell do I stay motivated?
