Oh yeah, and we’re giving away a copy of the Events Calendar Pro plugin, so watch the interview for how to enter (and you’ll learn heaps of cool stuff from Shane about freelancing).

Show Notes

The internet connection is much better in this interview and I’m standing up and my new sit/stand electric desk (I can’t recommend this thing highly enough – it’s a game changer).

Anyhoo – Shane talks about the six keys to happiness and balance – family, friends, fun, finance, fitness and faith. He also explains how the state of the business determines whether or not he sells or surfs. We talk about the idea of Triage and how it helps him decide what to do next.

During the interview Shane mentions this blog post about deciding to take a project on or not. He also references this presentation about how to get big brands on your portfolio.
