If you were attracted to the title of this episode, there's a good chance you're a Weirdo. Don't get me wrong. I mean that in a good way. You're colorful weird, not creepy weird.

If you're anything like me, you knew from a young age that you didn't quite fit in. Perhaps you felt awkward, out of place, or a bit like an alien observing all these humans and their strange behavior.

If this describes you, congratulations! You're the ideal candidate for a successful career in the arts. Listen as I explain more in this short sample from the DIY Career Manifesto.

I think of him as the punk rock entrepreneur. Jon Nastor took the DIY punk music ethic of his teens and twenties and ended up applying it to his business life.

Today he hosts the wildly successful "Hack the Entrepreneur" podcast, even though he hates the sound of his voice.

His first time out of the gate as an author resulted in several thousand copies sold of his Hack the Entrepreneur book, even though he never considered himself to be a great writer.

Listen to this high-energy interview as Jon lays out his amazing story in detail. You'll learn:

  • How he wrote and published his first book in three months
  • What his young daughter taught him about the power of birthdays
  • Why he loves and embraces "maniacs" and encourages you to do the same
  • How Dr. Seuss changed his life
  • Why all entrepreneurs should be willing to suck

Click Play. You'll be glad you did!

She also has an inspiring story and attitude about her 25-plus years as a full-time writer. Not bad for someone who describes herself as "unemployable."

Listen to this fast-paced interview as Pam shares how she carved out a career ideally suited for her, and how she overcame some "dark days" several years ago when things weren't going so well.
