Despite the economic havoc that continues to play out, I’m reading more and more about the unconventional ways that people are making money… and getting rich.
Here’s the guy who is inspiring me: Chris Guillebeau and his blog, the Art of Non-Conformity. Chris took an unconventional approach to blogging that seemed to defy the experts in many respects. However, the principle he did master was that he created unique content that addressed the needs of a niche group of entrepreneurs.
He wrote a few eBooks, but here’s a free book on his site, called 279 Days to Overnight Success, that I recommend.
Whether it’s producing eBooks, or selling art on Ebay or Etsy, (or creating advanced Automated Trading systems), Chris proves convincingly that people are finding new ways to create wealth that is in line with both their values and their aspirations.
As technology accelerates, this type of wealth generation becomes even more possible.
Reading Chris’s book made me think that this new economic era requires a new mindset. We need to psychologically and spiritually be prepared to make bold economic moves, the very moves that create unconventional wealth.
