Guest Post on The Playa Wire: A Practical Look at Radical Parenting

15 Feb

I wrote a blog post on my work with another blog (I know, that’s a lot of blogging) that went up over the weekend. The Playa Wire is an awesome online magazine, which provides articles and videos to improve our future. Sounds like quite the undertaking, but it’s actually pretty cool!

It’s called “Daylighting”, which means taking a day job to supplement your living from your night job. Vanessa mentions, and I agree, how daylighting switches the focus to pursuing what you really want, and really owning it. So no more downplaying the dream by saying “Well, I’m a sales associate at this store… and I kind of sing on the side.” No, you ARE a singer! And you work at a store on the side…”
