A little over 6 weeks are left until my new book, How To Work With Almost Anyone, comes out, and I’m already selling it persistently online. I’ll tell you why; preordering is a powerful thing. It helps get the flight wheel spinning before release, but it can also remove risk in the creation process. Inviting others to express their support for a project in the making can give you the cash, the resources, or the confidence you need to take the leap. In other words – and this applies to all of us – invite people in early and ask for their support.

Ash Ambirge is one of the original pioneers of the creator economy. Having been on the road herself since 2009, Ash writes newsletters and books about the modern digital nomad experience, remote work, and using creativity and technology to do what you love from wherever you are.

Ash reads two pages from ‘Tell Them Who I Am’ by Elliot Liebow. [reading begins at 18:20]

Hear us discuss:

  • Managing your freedom: “I like to take as many opportunities as I can because I’m in a position to do so.” [26:58]
  • “All of us are obligated to do what we can with the ideas that we have.” [28:38]
  • The prison of imposter syndrome: “It’s okay if you don’t think that I’m qualified because I’m going to prove to you that I am.” [29:43]
  • Recognising when to move on. [31:09]
  • What does ‘home’ mean? [33:57]
  • How to not become a parody of yourself. [37:10]
