  • A Sabbatical Every Seven Weeks - Sean McCabe

    17/06/2021 Duração: 44min

    Sean McCabe runs seanwes and in 2014 he was working seven days per week.   Yup, no breaks.  He knew he needed to make a chance but the problem? All of his friends and even his wife worked at the company.  He decided he would take every seven weeks off.  He quickly realized it was a bit unfair to his team and extended it to everyone in the company.   He's found that not only has his life gotten better but his business has continued to grow and they have figured out how to build mandatory (not like "unlimited vacation...) sabbaticals into the operating rhythm of the company.  His mission is to help every company globally (yes, really) embrace this model by 2047.  I'm on board.

  • Packy McCormick - Bringing Fun To Newsletters Since 2019

    04/12/2020 Duração: 42min

    Packy says that his differentiation "is that I’m going to be having more fun than most people” I've been a big fan of the energy he's brought to his writing over the past couple of years. But he didn't set out to have a popular newsletter.  His real plan was to launch an in-person community.   We chat about how the pandemic helped him figure out why that wasn't a good idea and how he's thinking about his solopreneur journey, The reason I asked him on the podcast is to talk about his recent newsletter on the future of work.  He argues that “Employees will ultimately make the decision” about what work looks like post-pandemic.  I think he is mostly right and we talk about what that might mean for people's lives. ---- You can find ways to support Paul through affiliate links, newsletter sponsorship or direct gifts here If you want to subscribe to Paul's weekly newsletter on the modern state of work, the solopreneur journey and creating online, you can subscribe here.

  • Carving a 21st Century Life & Career - Steph Smith

    16/09/2020 Duração: 48min

    Steph has a hard time identifying as anything.  Remote worker, writer, or coder don't really do it justice.  The thing that stands out when you talk to Steph is that she is a LEARNER.  Through competing in chess as a child she learned the valuable meta-skill of how to improve and never really saw any reason why she couldn't just take something up. This mindset is invaluable in today's world and this is demonstrated by the way Steph landed her job at The Hustle (hint: it didn't involve a formal application.  This conversation was a lot of fun and explores: Digital nomadism myth vs. reality How she chooses where to live What she learned traveling the world competing in chess as a child How she thinks about work and her identity One of her favorite topics - words that don't translate Learn More: StephSmith.io
