People keep telling me I need to be writing more blogs and recording more shows. So...I'm going to. In two weeks we're going to start producing weekly Free Agent Underground shows and pumping out more inspiration and equipping on self-employment...but also more stories of folks who did it.
Today however, I'm bringing you a blog post...not from me, titled Psychologically Unemployable. This comes from Dave Munson, and he wrote it for us. Dave is Presidente of Saddleback Leather Co., and I'm a fan of Daves. Chuck Bowen is business coach to both of us, and says Dave and I have similiar personality styles. We are both pretty creative, but can't organize our way out of a wet paper bag. We both have really hot wives. Dave though, makes briefcases and other bags out of really thick, dead cow skins. I'm a vegetarian. I love him anyway and actually carry my laptop in one of his dead cow skin backpacks. Which makes me the worst of hypocrits. I'm OK with that.

Dave is also funnier than I am, but I'd like to think I'm better looking and that evens things out.
Dave went from being a penniless missionary selling puppies for tacos (literally) to owning a very successful business that allows him to buy all the burritos he wants, drive a really cool, old truck, and take 50 day trips to Europe so he can visit exotic beaches with his hot wife, and camp in Africa for a couple weeks helping bless orphaned kids with shoes and water. He inspires people to more...more adventure, more life and more love of the Lord. (Pic: Dave & Suzette Munson overseas somewhere)
Dave and I are both avid fans of self-employment. Actually, it's life or death. We'd rather be self-employed and have our fingernails ripped off daily, than work for someone else and have daily full body massages. Well, at least 6 out of 7 days.
Dave is coming out here to my place in two weeks to share his journey and learnings with a group of aspiring and successful free agents. In preparation with that, he wrote a bit of a rant on why he can't be an employee and why he loves his current boss. I'm very, very grateful to share it with you. Even though I'm a bit envious of how witty his writing is. Be inspired. Be informed. And if you can read it without laughing, Dave will send you a product of your choice.

And while you're there, buy something. It's a great way to invest in some quality and adventure for your life!
