Jacob: If you have a full-time job the best piece of actionable advice that I can give you is to speak up. It’s to have a voice inside of your company, participate in beta programs around workplace initiatives if they have them. If there are internal collaboration tools that your company deploys, use them. Build your own personal brand inside of your company and outside.
Secondly, if you are working in an organization and you are unhappy, best piece of actionable advice is simply start small and create a profile on a site like Upwork.com, TMGotTalent.com or Freelancer.com and see if you are able to make or to generate some sort of income on the side in addition to the full-time work that you are doing. So best piece of actionable advice is, stop talking and start doing.
Isn’t it time to create passive income so you can work where you want, when you want and with whomever you want?
