A great read for anyone who’s a freelancer or creating something online (e.g. blog posts, Youtube videos, newsletter etc.). More and more people (including me) are now choosing to be self-employed, instead of working for a company. For companies to win, they need to compete.

This is also why I started Mindvillage community. It’s great for finding others to cooperate with!

You cannot quiet the mind…
