Writer Routines: Albert Einstein

When you are self-employed, you have a lot of freedom with how to get your work done. I love starting my day reading; it’s an excellent way to wake up my brain (while not talking to anyone). But other than that, I have no particular routine for completing my work.

Your Manager is a Stupidvisor

Any Bar Rescue fans out there? The other night I was watching Jon Taffer mercilessly tear into a group of doe-eyed employees about their behavior. I can’t recall the episode, but it sticks out because of the term he used to describe the supervisor.  After questioning the supervisor about her

Hire a Ghostwriter? Only if You are Busy.

Less Snooze, More Reading
