You Don’t Want A Job—and here’s why…

My good friend, fellow virtual worker, author, and occasional nomad Joel D Canfield has a new book out (his 10th!):



You Don’t Want A Job: Why Self-Employment Reduces Your Risks & Increases Your Rewards





To celebrate, and to learn more about why you don’t want one, enjoy this chat we did via Skype with Joel in Wisconsin and me and Los Angeles:


We discuss:

  • What exactly IS a job?
  • Why you don’t want one
  • The four “T’s” of work
  • Lifestyle changes and benefits
  • Who this book is for


A bit more about the book, from Joel:

“You don’t need anyone to tell you the economy stinks. Everyone is just hanging on, hoping it gets better.

That’s not how it works.

Picture This Scene

losing your grip

Walking along a mountain path, you slip — and go right over the edge. Your hired guide grabs your hand. Whew! Safety.

Then, he starts to slip.

Look into his eyes. Imagine it. This is no lifelong friend, no loved one, no trusted ally. Your only relationship is money.

When he starts to slip, would you rather be hanging from his hand, or hanging onto something with your own?”


If you think you’d like to learn more about not wanting a job, order your copy now: paperback or  (aff link).
