The book that inspired artist Red Fracture to make art full-time


After talking to Sean Chapple on the podcast aka Red Fracture, a guy who recently quit his day job to give being a full-time artist a try, he recommended the book You Are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero.



Before I got the book I looked up some interviews she had done to see what to expect.
Here is what I found.

From Business Insider
  • she talks about her journey from a freelance writer living in a converted garage to New York Times-bestselling author.
  • changing your money mindset, getting clear on your financial goals, and stepping outside your comfort zone are all key to building the financial life you want.
  • she finally decided to get serious about her financial situation, especially the way she thought about money and the way she dealt with it on a daily basis.
  • this book is mostly about mastering your money mindset
  • setting financial goals means getting clear on why you want the money, what you intend to spend it on, and how great it will feel once you finally have it in your possession.
From Money.com
  • Imagine if you put all the time and energy you’ve spent figuring out how to cut back and save into figuring out how you can make more money? Instead of assuming it’s an either/or situation – I can either buy a latte every morning or I can pay off my student loans — why not focus on increasing your income and go for both?
  • Learn as you go, but go.
  • Switch from “I know” to “I’m excited to learn more” one of the most profound ways to transform your life is to act like you know very little.
So I’ll give the book a try.
Managing money is not something I put on the top of my to-do list because it’s no fun so I’ll give the book a try and see if it changes that?

Time zones.

Luckily I was at home and about to start setting up. But then I just felt off time the rest of the day.

Login.

Then I just try to think if I accidentally used one of those fake login pages you hear about that steal your info. Or was it an app installed?

What's that sound.

If it would have continued I'm sure I would have woke up enough to investigate.
