According to Wikipedia, a safari is an overland journey, usually a trip by tourists to Africa. Traditionally, the term is used for a big-game hunt, but today the term often refers to a trip taken not for the purposes of hunting, but to observe and photograph animals and other wildlife.


It started in 1836 when William Cornwallis Harris led an expedition purely to observe and record wildlife and landscapes by the expedition's members. Harris established the safari style of journey, starting with a not too strenuous rising at first light, an energetic day walking, an afternoon rest then concluding with a formal dinner and telling stories in the evening over drinks and tobacco.


Although I've never been on an African safari, I love the notion of a small group of people hopping in a Jeep with a guide to see what happens to cross their path. This isn't like jumping on a tour bus and driving past monuments. When you're on a safari you can't be certain what will show up.


You won't need a passport to participate in the upcoming Idea Safari. You might, however, need one afterward. This series is going to give you dozens of practical tools that you can put to work on your Joyfully Jobless Journey.


Who knows what adventures you'll have when you begin to build your expert status,

design a portable business or free your entrepreneurial spirit?


So pick one teleclass-or sign up for the series-then join me for the next three Thursday evenings for these fun excursions. You'll also receive an audio download so you can relive the Idea Safari as often as you like.


Safari Souvenir: When you sign up for the series, you'll be entered in a drawing for Steven Pressfield's marvelous new book, Turning Pro. This book is a sequel to his earlier War of Art, one of my all-time favorites.


This is one safari that you can join from the comfort of your home without encountering hostile natives or unfriendly wildlife.

Idea Safari  

You will, however, find plenty of wild (and tame) ideas that you can take back to your own habitat and put to work in building your business.


Here's what we're exploring this time.


We launch this Thursday, July 12th with A Dozen Ways to Build Your Expert Status.  Coaches, photographers, writers, inventors, entrepreneurs of all sorts have learned to think like an expert and position themselves in a way that makes them memorable. So can you.


Put these ideas to work for you and get yourself noticed for all the right reasons.


Week #2 finds us exploring A Dozen Ways to Build a Portable Business on Thursday, July 19th. If you hanker to be an entrepreneurial gypsy or simply don't want to be tied to a single location, this teleclass will show you a dozen options beyond running an online operation (which many small business advisors seem to think is the only opportunity).


Whether your dream is to earn a living while your passport accumulates stamps or you'd like to travel the country in your motor home, this Idea Safari will show you how others have successful combined travel and commerce.


Finally, we wrap up the Idea Safari series on Thursday, July 26th with A Dozen Ways to Free Your Inner Entrepreneur. Do entrepreneurs think differently than employees do? Kind of a silly question, isn't it? During a seminar, Alice Barry nailed it when she said, "Employees commiserate. Entrepreneurs brainstorm."


Happily, becoming aware of the mindset of successful entrepreneurs-and challenging yourself to shift your perspective-is something that can be learned. Join me on this Safari and you'll come away with tools to excavate your own inner entrepreneur.


Upcoming Thursday night Idea Safaris begin at 8 PM Eastern, 5 PM Pacific. All participants will receive an audio download of each teleclass.


Don't get left behind. Each exploration is just $25 or $50 for the series. Click here to register for your Safari seat.

Buon Viaggio,
