audio book: digital download / mp3 audio files + PDF of text and resource guide
Please do not spend another drop of your time, energy, or money trying to build your career on shaky ground. It doesnʼt feel good, and, honestly, it doesnʼt work that well (if at all, really).
Building on shaky ground means you are working harder for fewer results (while other folks are whizzing along). Building on shaky ground means you are settling for a two-steps-forward one-step-back experience. Building on shaky ground means you are missing out on fully maximizing the opportunities that come your way.
No. More. Of. That. Unnecessary. Nonsense.
Instead, letʼs put a rock-solid foundation in place that will serve you for many years to come. But how, right? Cuz so many of the time management books, business books, and networking books are not written for us creative types – they don’t apply to a life that usually has a crazy, unpredictable schedule… and abrupt shifts in employment… and wild fluctuations of income.
But I know that life. I’ve lived that life. And I wrote and recorded this audio book to help creative folks reclaim clarity, stability, and peace within that life.
Part 1: Focus and Strategy
How to build momentum and make decisions in your life and career.
Part 2: Home Office Efficiency
How to create a physical environment that supports you rather than drains you.
Part 3: Financial Organization
How to a simple routine in place so you always “know your number.”
Part 4: Networking: How and Why
How to the relationships you want without feeling icky, intrusive, aggressive, or needy.
It became a fight with my experiences to give this audio book a chance – my impulse being to brush it off as just another hymnal of cliched “duh” wisdoms. Sheʼs going to tell me how to be creative AND organized? Can you be both? But this book really does have merit. I found her offering mind-opening realizations about my life that I should have thought of on my own… but didnʼt. She really knows the problems of a disorganized, driven professional. She really knows good networking techniques. Kristine Oller will inspire you to direct your energy towards those things which give life to your future.
Feeding Your Focus is a basic tool for anybody who is self-employed – not even just actors or people who are in the arts, but anybody who is embarking on something where they are on their own. If you could get a degree from a university in “being self-employed,” this would be the core curriculum. After listening to the book, it became crystal clear what I wanted to do – and I started saying “no” to a lot of things.
These 8 audio hours (plus the full text as a PDF) will deliver practical and powerful guidance that you’ll be able to implement immediately – whether you are taking the first step on your path or you are years into your journey.
