Everyone Is An Artist

A few years back I decided I wanted to learn to draw and paint. I enrolled in an art course and spent 4 hours at class, twice a week for an entire semester. The art school was a respectable old institution, and it stood on a weather-beaten island just outside my hometown Helsinki, Finland.

How Do You Know You're on the Right Path?

When I decided to finally stop exploring and re-publish my blog last week, I didn’t really know what to expect. I had built a nice email list of subscribers teaching online marketing and business. Now I was suddenly going into a completely new direction and I had no idea what was going to happen next. But I was tired, and I was ready.

How I Make My Goals Actually Happen

I’ve been thinking about goal-setting a lot in the aftermath of my 2016 annual review. As I was writing the review, it became really clear to me that the way I’ve approached and executed my goals hasn’t worked for me at all.
