    Valuing Options & Possibilities On The Solo Creator Path with Kris Abdelmessih

    Valuing Options & Possibilities On The Solo Creator Path with Kris Abdelmessih

    Kris Abdelmessih has one of the most unique perspectives on life and works I've stumbled across in the past few years.  He uses his experience as a trader to look at decision-making and work investments through the lens of options, pricing, and other financial models.  I enjoy his perspective because unlike other financial types, he seems to have a proper appreciation of non-work / non-productive time.

    We explore his recent break from trading, his creative journey writing on the internet, and finding his people, and he challenges me to think differently about how I'm spending my time with my work.

    The conversation dramatically shifted how I'm thinking about the possibilities of my path.  If you are on a self-employed path, this is a must-listen:

    The Formless Path - Money, Fatherhood & Creativity (Howard Gray)

    The Formless Path - Money, Fatherhood & Creativity (Howard Gray)

    Howard Gray is the founder of Wavetable, a studio that helps brands and companies come together to develop fan-based experiences to help teams teach and share ideas.

    The two things that drive him are to "create space for people to do the work they want to do" and to help people "make sense of the world and overcome the tension of putting things out in the world"

    We dive into his idea of the formless path, why the creator economy is in danger of being hijacked, how he sees himself as a guide rather than as a creator, and why fatherhood is helping him "sharpen" his focus.

    The Shadow Side of Solopreneurship - Darren Joe

    The Shadow Side of Solopreneurship - Darren Joe

    “You can’t study or learn your way into a new identity” - I love this quote from Darren Joe.  He’s been thinking about carving a different path from 2003 to 2004.  He said that he was driven by a natural drive to be independent and do his own thing.  I found this pretty impressive because in those years not many people were doing what he was doing.

    He recently published a book titled The Fail-Safe Entrepreneur.  In it he argues that almost all solopreneurs strive for three things: Freedom, Adventure, Meaning.  I definitely agree.  However, he says many fail to reach these aims because they ignore the shadow side of this path.  He details four things - FAIL: Failure, anxiety, instability, loneliness.

    We explore many things in this conversation including:


    Grappling with the achiever identity
    Longing for independence and freedom
    Parental approval
    Building Community
    Experiments
    Defining success

    You can buy his book the Fail Safe Solopreneur on Amazon

    Accidental Freelancer To Brand Consultant, Founder & Freelance Coach (Austin Church)

    Austin Church thought he was going to be a poet.  When that didn't go as planned, he joined the business world.  Six months later he was laid off in the 2008 recession.  Luckily, his firm hired him back as a freelancer and that completely changed his perspective on work.  Ever since he's been hacking a living, shifting roles as a freelancer, founder, entrepreneur, and coach.  We chat about his journey and more.

    Learn more about Austin and his great writing on freelancing here.
