I'm currently at home in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

These are the things I'm currently doing:

  1. Taking on freelance projects
  2. Recording my podcast Design Life once a week
  3. Working full time (remotely) at Atomic
  4. Trying to publish a new article every week
  5. Attempting daily smoothies and yoga on weekdays
  6. Interviewing interesting and under-deserved creatives
  7. Travelling

 

These are things I'm currently not doing:

  1. Drinking soda
  2. Eating processed foods (well, trying)
  3. Running

 

These are some cool people and courses I recommend:

  1. James Grieg – Get proven tips on going freelance, rethinking your design career, or starting a business on your own terms.
  2. Paul Jarvis – him sharing his thoughts on using your creativity to make a living.
  3. Tobias van Schneider – receive an email from him every Sunday night right on time for your Monday Inspiration.
  4. Charged – a weekly newsletter designed to save you time and get you up to date on tech, without the need to keep up with noisy tech sites.
  5. CharliMarieTV – videos about design.
  6. Justin Jackson – helping you reach more people with the things you create.
  7. The Creative Class* – a course by Paul Jarvis teaching you the stuff that enables you to DO your work, like business, marketing & sales.

 

These are some books I've read that were decent:
