Freedom, Money and Time…

Hi there… regular readers will recall that last year I wrote a review of the Lateral Action course; it’s a ‘Roadmap for the Creative Entrepreneur’ which I bought last year and got a lot out of, so I wanted to recommend it. Well, the doors are opening again and this time Mark McGuinness, who runs the wonderful Lateral Action blog, has prepared some superb free content to go along with the relaunch, in the form of an ebook called ‘Freedom, Money, Time – and the Key to Creative Success‘. I think it’s worth a read, and wanted to pass it along to you.

Here’s a bit of initial information to whet your appetite, or you can just go ahead and click here to download the book straightaway – no opt-in or anything. The ebook does contain an affiliate link, which means that if,  after looking through the free materials, you decide the full Roadmap is for you I would make a commission on the price you pay.

However, the book itself is free, and there is a TON of other great information on the Lateral action site that won’t cost you a dime, including a guest post by yours truly and an extensive email course by Mark called ‘The Creative Pathfinder’ – so there’s really no pressure to buy anything here – but I do still think the full Roadmap is superb.

Free Ebook: Freedom, Money, Time – and the Key to Creative Success

Creative people need three things to be happy:

  1. Freedom – to do what you want, when you want and how you want it. Not just in holidays and spare time – but also doing meaningful work, in your own way.
  2. Money – to maintain your independence and fund your creative projects. Of course you want a nice place to live, but you’re not so worried about a bigger car than the guy next door. You’d rather spend money on experiences than status symbols.
  3. Time – to spend as you please, exploring the world and allowing your mind to wander in search of new ideas.

Usually, you’re lucky if you get two out of the three. But if one of them is missing, it compromises the other two.

Without money, you don’t have much freedom, because you have to spend your time chasing cash. Without time off, money doesn’t buy you a lot of freedom.

And if you’re doing something you hate for a living, it doesn’t matter how big your salary is, or how much holiday you get. You still feel trapped.

Surely there must be a more creative solution?

This is the premise of a new free ebook by Mark McGuinness: Freedom, Money, Time – and the Key to Creative Success.

The ebook describes Mark’s unconventional career journey, as a poet and creative coach, and the lessons he’s learned the hard way about finding the right combination of freedom, money and time.

It’s full of practical advice you can apply to your own situation, if you want to earn a living from your creative talent, or if you’re a freelancer or small business owner and want to make your business less stressful and more profitable.

Mark and his partners have also prepared an in-depth training program to accompany the ebook, and I’m pleased to be an affiliate partner for the launch (see above). But the ebook itself is free to download, with no need to even give your email address!
