As a coach, an essential part of one’s business is to help people or companies meet and surpass their goals. However, just like carpenters can ironically have the worst furniture, coaches might find themselves fueling others’ success and ignoring their own.
Midway through my decade as a producer, songwriter, engineer, performer, and artists and repertoire executive for London Records during the height of the British wave, I was an analog guy struggling to escape the undertow of receding vinyl LPs, 24-track tape machines, cassettes and 8-tracks as CDs and digital recording were quickly revolutionizing the recording business. But, as I reflect back on the 70s a half-century later, and the fact that according to Intuit, 43% of Americans are projected to be working in the gig economy by next year, the success lessons I learned from music while “gigging” are timelessly relevant to the emerging future of independent gig work.

Choosing between the stability of a traditional career and the upside of entrepreneurship? Why not have both?
Becoming a full-time entrepreneur can look glamorous from the outside. Who doesn’t want to chase their dreams, be their own boss, and do what they love? But the truth is that entrepreneurship is often a slog, with no regular hours, no job security, and very little pay.
What if there was a way to have the stability of a day job with the excitement of a startup? All of the benefits of entrepreneurship with none of the pitfalls? Continue reading Patrick J. McGinnis on DESIGN YOU Radio
Friday is often greeted with relief as the “end” of the week; that somehow we “made it through” and can now enjoy the weekend. Except for appointments, I rarely look at my calendar for the simple reason that living my life with passion makes every day of the week special. So, it doesn’t matter what letters precede ‘day.’ The same with watches. Peter Fonda told the bikers in Wild Hogs to ‘lose the watches’ and there’s a lot to be said about that. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’ve never missed a meeting. In fact, I’m characteristically early. Probably because any meeting important enough for me to attend has got to have value. But, the only time that matters to me is the moment I’m in and what am I doing in that moment to take me further on my journey. If Monday isn’t as exciting as Saturday and Wednesday is nothing more that the hump to get past than check your passion gauge. Fuel up your life on hi-test and lose the ’87.’ Life is a ride and we should all be heading for an outrageously wonderful destination.
