Ideas don't make you rich. Great execution of ideas does.

Postcard from Barbara
When my grandson was 4, he came for an overnight visit. We crawled into bed and he began asking me questions about various things in my bedroom. Then he proposed that we think of ideas for scaring people on Halloween. 

"What did you have in mind?" I asked.

He got thoughtful for a moment and said, "Here's a possibility." I may have jumped slightly hearing that word which I didn't know what in his vocabulary. 

"We could hang a skeleton in a tree," he mused, "and shoot Silly String out of his mouth."

We talked about a few other possibilities and then I said, "It's time to go to sleep now."

Zachy scowled and said, "No! I want to talk about IDEAS!" 

It was hard to argue with that since I am determined that Grandma's house will always be a safe place to imagine possibilities.

Ah, ideas. Although there may be no blueprint for making a living without a job, the Joyfully Jobless Journey is really about following an endless trail of ideas.

Too often, however, ideas are undervalued. I'm sure you've heard (or even said), "Oh, it's just an idea."

Just an idea? 

Here's an idea that is worth paying attention to. Valerie Young has created a program to help others generate ideas and bring them to life. Read on to get the scoop.

Do you love to brainstorm?  

Are you always thinking up new business ideas?  

Do you jump in to give other people ideas?  

Do you dream about a career where you can work when, where, and how you want?   

Well, what if I told you there was a way you could get paid to help other people find unique ways to turn their interests into income?   

And what if by helping other people get out of the 9-to-5 grind and work at what they love.... You were able to do the same for yourself  

Think about it.   

So many people spend the better part of their life crawling through commuter traffic to get to some unfulfilling job in a cubicle.   

(Maybe you're one!)  

When deep down they'd love to be a photographer... or write children's books... or run a spiritual retreat center... or bring their product idea to market... or find a way to get paid to travel.   

Well, they're hardly alone.   

Job dissatisfaction, downsizing, and the growing desire for more work/life balance are forcing people to think about alternative ways to make their living. 

All of which has created a unique opportunity for people with creative minds like yours to get paid for doing what comes naturally. 

That' s why I want to introduced you to my friend Dr.
Valerie Young. 

Valerie is the founder and "Dreamer in Residence" of Changing Course where she's been inspiring her 24k readers to turn their passions into profits since 1995.   

In that time, she's built a reputation for success, attracting the attention of the BBC, Wall Street Journal, USA Today Weekend, O magazine, Redbook, More, Entrepreneur, Canadian Living, The Financial Times, Kiplinger's, Self, The Boston Globe, The Chicago Tribune, and Glamour (UK), to name just a few...   

Valerie left the corporate world decades ago.  

But it wouldn't have happened if she hadn't first figured out why SO many change seekers end up on the wrong career path to begin with.

After you watch this 2-minute video, I encourage you to sign up to get her entire (FREE!) workshop series.   

It's called Paid to Brainstorm - and it includes some of the same techniques Valerie uses with her own coaching clients.  

The workshop is available for a limited time only.  

So if you love to brainstorm - and you want to work when, where and how you want - don't wait.   

P.S. Katherine Graham said it well: "To love what you do and feel that it matters - how could anything be more fun?"   

If you are an "idea person" then I really encourage you to sign up for Valerie's free Paid to Brainstorm workshop.  

Buon Viaggio,
