137: The Overlap Technique: A Crash Course | Build and grow a sustainable business.
I want to help you make a living with your passion. This is why I started working on a book in early 2014 called The Overlap Technique: it’s a down-to-earth, practical guide to becoming an expert and making more money than your day job before you even quit.
I got about 20,000 words into it, and then had to put it on the back-burner. I continued teaching a lot of the principles in the podcast, but I put the writing on hold to work on my website and building the Community.
During the time that elapsed between starting the book and returning to it later in the year, I’d received hundreds of emails from people telling me their biggest struggles with pursuing their passions.
I decided to throw out the first 20,000 words and start from scratch.
The book will launch in 2015, but in the mean time, the tremendous feedback I’ve received has really shaped the book into being a direct answer to your most pressing questions. Giving the material some breathing room has really allowed me to refine the message.
It’s been more than 80 episodes since I’ve last dedicated an episode to talking about The Overlap Technique and making the difficult transition from soul-sucking day job to doing what you love and sustaining yourself. In this episode, I give you a crash course on the refined concepts and the four core pillars of being able to keep your passion and have it sustain you long term.
It’s the perfect episode for a first-time listener!
Long-time listeners: trust me, you’re going to get a WHOLE ton out of this too, but (finally!) you have a great first episode to point your friend to if they haven’t listened before.
