Jeff Goins

I truly enjoyed this interview with, acclaimed author, blogger, and all around great guy, Jeff Goins.  Jeff is very candid about his journey towards becoming a full time writer, blogger and coach.  As you know (if you follow this blog or podcast), I am a very big advocate for everyone to at least seriously consider creating multiple streams of income around doing and sharing what you love.

Having a passion based or lifestyle business -either full time or on the side- is a great way to do work that matters and get paid to do what you love.  What I appreciate about Jeff is, he’s achieving this the “RIGHT WAY.”  With integrity, honesty, and an authentic heart for helping people succeed at creating a life and career that they love.

It’s not about “get rich quick!”  It’s about meeting the needs of others with your expertise, and translating your strengths into real solutions that help other people.

Jeff recently did a series on his blog on How To Built a Blog Audience of Over 100,000 Readers

In one of his blog post in this series Jeff’s writes:

But there’s a paradox in the pursuit of fame: those who try the hardest to earn others’ attention rarely get it. Conversely, those who scorn the limelight are often the ones dodging the paparazzi.

Of course, this isn’t always the case. But with writing and other artistic crafts, I’ve found it to be undeniably accurate. Something interesting happens when you make passion your chief pursuit: People start to notice.

The world is desperate for, even envious of, people living purposeful lives that are free from fear. We are all inspired by those brave enough to shirk the trappings of fame and do work that matters.

If you are interested in “going pro” with your writing, or want another fresh perspective on the personal development, make sure you check Jeff’ blog out.

Be well my friend, and remember in everything you do, live generously, live courageously, and always finish well!
