When you’re no longer behind the paywall

When I started to put my work out there, I made a decision to not sell. It was simply about writing what I loved, observed and felt.

That changed when I joined Medium. There was an opportunity to get paid, and I often put that first. Ironically, I never made much money.

I took a six month break after leaving the Partner Program in January. It was a total reset.

I came back because I missed writing for a particular publication. I also thought it would be a good idea to write about books here (I hate wordpress).

For me right now, it’s about enjoying the process. Maybe later I’ll rejoin and make it a money venture. Right now, however, happiness comes first.

Blissful dissatisfaction

I was listening to a podcast that my best friend recommended to me. The podcast was too good. I feel like it changed my life in a micro fashion and gave me the amount of juice I needed to push through the day and make more progress on my goals.

Aloha Katibeloved,

We didn’t have to look too far to find you and it seems wherever we went, you went with us! Our first meeting was in Vancouver B.C. in 2006 at our wedding party, then Costa Rica…
