In fact, it’s getting to the point that a “personality” that connects with the crowd you want is required to gain traction online. But that doesn’t mean you need to become Donald Trump or some other bombastic caricature.
You just need to be brave enough to be you. That – plus a generous nature for sharing your expertise – can help you build a small, profitable business without the need for investors or huge financial risk.
And from there, you can grow as much as you desire, based on your income and lifestyle preferences. Join Chris Ducker and me for a lively chat about the beauty of bootstrapping, ending the tyranny of geography, and the sunny future for unemployable types.

Malcolm Gladwell writes in this week’s magazine about Kim Philby, a member of the British Secret Intelligence Service who spied for the Soviets for many years before and during the Cold War. On this week’s Out Loud podcast, Nicholas Thompson, the editor of newyorker.com, talks to Gladwell about Philby and other spies whose careers, Gladwell argues, call into question the value of intelligence gathered via espionage. Gladwell says, “There are many people, myself included, who are somewhere between hostile and agnostic on the notion of how crucial those kinds of secrets are. There is an enormous amount of back-and-forth over the period of the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the West on spies coming forward with information and secrets being sold and betrayed, and it’s really, really hard to come to any understanding of what the implication of those acts of treachery were.”
Gladwell and Thompson also discuss the political repercussions of relying on espionage, and the tension between trust and suspicion, which is crucial to spy operations, but can play out in almost any area of life.

A Harvard economist finds there are psychological connections between the bad financial planning of many poor people and the poor time management of busy professionals. In both cases, he finds the experience of scarcity causes biases in the mind that exacerbate problems.
