Episode 06: Dreamboard to success
Today, I want to get to the bottom of this thing called dream boards. If we put the esoteric aside, what is it? The full transcript is on our website Episode 06Here's the full cycle:I write down three things: what I want to be, what I want to do, and what I want to have. I go and gather magazines. I don't look online; I don't look on sites where I can pin what I like, like Pinterest, because that will just keep me stuck where I am. I go and select magazines from all over the place - buy, or get them for free. I give myself 60 minutes time to get images and phrases that speak to me that are somehow linked to the things I wrote down but not necessarily. My goal is to find more than just what visually represents the things I wrote in those three columns. I have a maximum of 50x70cm - that's probably an A3 type piece of paper - and that's the biggest paper I can go for. I put all the images all the phrases on it. If I don't want anyone to see, I take a photo and make it my screensaver. If I want to have it with me then I can create a scrapbook where I put those images on different pages and look through them. I decide on three habits that I want to introduce into my life and three things that I want to get rid of by the end of 12 months. I continue to keep track of how I'm introducing or getting rid of those things on a weekly or monthly basis.

Episode 05: Self-branding for Freelancers
Easy to implement step-by-step approach to self-branding.The interesting thing about freelancing is that you really have to have a strong personal brand because you need to stand out to be selected for what you do. But more importantly, so often with freelancing, you don't get a chance to build that relationship with people - you're just employed to do a job, get it done and then you're out again.
