What I Do for a Living
I no longer work in an office. It’s been years. Now my desk is glass. It sits in my living room in Chicago behind a Chinese rice paper screen. Out the windows behind me is Lake Michigan and, in the wee hours when I have a chance, I can look at the water and think about what I’ll write next.
My office is the Internet. It’s inside my computer and inside yours. It’s open 24/7. My friends will attest that I’m almost here. I like it when you stop by or interrupt. It’s kind of lonely when no one’s around.
When folks ask me what I do every day, I say I write about thinking, and writing, and strategy. They usually get what I mean by that. But what I really do is try to share what I’ve learned and have fun while I’m doing it. It’s a rule of business and of life —
If you’re not having fun, you’re not doing it right.
What work did you do that was fun today?

You might have heard of my new service for small businesses, entrepreneurs, and folks who are forging a path of their own. I’m calling it PVM, the Perfect Virtual Manager. We all need Managers. It’s perfect because you get to decide your manager’s job description. What could more perfect than that?
