Adventure Calling? Or Same Old, Same Old?

Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.

~ Henri Nouwen

While we all know that change begins with new ideas, nothing much changes until we take action. 

Whether you’re contemplating starting something of your own or already building your own version of a small business, you won’t get very far without ideas and information and inspiration. 

That’s where the upcoming Joyfully Jobless Weekend can help. Join Barbara Winter, author of Making a Living Without a Job and publisher of Winning Ways newsletter, whose seminars have inspired thousands throughout the US, Canada and the UK.

Join us and you”ll  

  • Uncover ideas you forgot
  • Learn creative ways to build a portfolio of profit centers
  • Make friends with marketing (and other dreaded tasks)
  • Meet your tribe

The Weekend begins on Friday evening with Becoming a Great Idea Detective. The exploration resumes on Saturday with Making a Living Without a Job and I Hate Marketing. 

You can find more details about each of these programs at

However, there’s a bigger reward with attending that goes beyond all the creative ideas and useful information. As Seth Godin points out, “It’s our urgent obligation (and precious opportunity) to learn more and make things better for those around us. What we’ve found, though, is that it’s the lifelong journey of connection that powers that learning. That surrounding ourselves with others on the same path is at least as useful as learning something new.“

So if you’re ready to add some adventure and exploration to your own portfolio, while surrounding yourself with others on the same path, claim your spot now. This is a small group event so seats are limited. 

You can register for just one or join us for all three and give yourself a nice discount. (That’s not just the best deal, it’s also a great investment.)
