I leave for Roller Coaster Tour in exactly 2 weeks. I’m not really prepared. I still don’t have my vehicle. :) But I’ll make it happen soon … I have no choice!
We’ve got more pressing matters to discuss today. Matters that directly affect our freedom. So I’m not going to ramble on here. In the words of Speech from Arrested Development (the 90s rap group, not the TV show), “I gotta get political. Political I gotta get.”
Hemp History Week Is Here by Julie Morris
Julie is a superfood chef. Hemp, in case you didn’t know, is a superfood. Besides that, it can be used for 1,349,256 other things (no joke, I counted). And while the hemp shirt I bought a while ago isn’t up to snuff for my travel needs (it takes too long to dry, although it’s better than cotton), I fully support re-legalizing this material in the USA. It’s sick and it’s sad that something as harmless as hemp (it is not marijuana) is illegal in the “land of the free.” I signed the legalize hemp petition. If you believe in freedom I hope you’ll sign it and spread the word as well. I’m not naive enough to believe that simply signing a petition will change anything. Which is why I’m also writing about the situation here. A little bit of me and a whole lot of you and we can make a difference.
If you don’t know Markus, get to know him. And read that tweet. And check out LivingOnImpulse.com. Markus is difficult to cross paths with because he’s on the move so much, but if you do it will be an experience you won’t soon forget.
From Corporate to Entrepreneurship or Why I Left My 6 Figure, Super-Easy, Work-From-Home 11 1/2 Year Career by Farnoosh Brock
Say that 3 times fast! Hell, say it one time fast and I’ll be impressed. Here Farnoosh goes deep and explains why chasing a high salary and climbing the corporate ladder isn’t always all it’s cracked up to be.
The Art of Conversation: How To Avoid Conversational Narcissism by Brett and Kate McKay
This was a fascinating read that made me feel like crap because I sometimes suck at conversation, but also made me feel awesome because I don’t always suck at conversation.
The Last Post by Derek K. Miller
Don’t read this if you don’t want to tear up.
That’s all this week. If you’re a Mother and you live in the US (or wherever they celebrate Mother’s Day tomorrow) Happy Mother’s Day tomorrow. :)
Oh, also, did you hear? I finally “get” country music.
Oh wait … vote for my friend Nick to speak at AffiliateSummit East. I’m going to try to go, but I will probably not be in the US at the time. Nick has an incredible mind and you’d be silly not to hear what he has to say. If you’ll be at World Domination Summit in Portland next month (I’ll be there) I’ll introduce you. :).
