Keep Making Art

leave a comment »

Keep. Making. Art.

Art and creativity can help us through our darkest moments, and I hope that you will keep this mantra in your head. Now that many of us are at home because of quarantine and social distancing measures, it might be just be time to add a little art practice to your every day.

I started a campaign this week called Creative Fuel Challenge (you can sign up here) and I am so inspired by all of the artists who are sharing their creativity in a variety of ways.

Here are some (free) resources if you are looking for art challenges and prompts:

I will keep updating this list, so if you know of others please feel free to contact me so that I can add them!

How to Work From Anywhere

leave a comment »

Three years ago I didn’t think I would ever be writing an article entitled “How to Work From Anywhere.” But one thing led to another, and soon I had gone from teaching English abroad to working at a magazine to co-founding a business. It’s interesting how important small choices can be, and how much of an impact even negative experiences can have on positive outcomes.

In any event, Matador Life published an article of mine this week to give others a little look into just what it takes to run a business from anywhere. Nothing too out of the ordinary — buy a good computer, remember to back up, etc. — but hopefully it provides for some inspiration and useful help.

Here’s an excerpt:

Working remotely is on the dream list for a lot of people with a sense of wanderlust. Even if your work isn’t travel related, having a job that lets you move around certainly makes life more enjoyable. So how do you run your business from anywhere? Here’s a quick guide to the essential tools you’ll need if you want to pick up and run your business from all corners of the globe.

Invest in a good computer

This may sound like a no-brainer, but if you’re serious about running a business that can be executed from anywhere, your computer is going to be one of your main investments. Some businesses are obviously more computer dependent than others, but at a bare minimum you’re going to need it to do business transactions via the Internet, keep track of your finances, etc. So don’t skimp! Make a list of everything you are going to need your computer to do, and buy accordingly. Invest in insurance for your technology as well; dealing with a computer crash on your own is no business owners dream.
