Do you feel stuck in a job but don’t think you could possibly survive as a your own boss?
Are you thinking, “If I follow my passion the money will just come!”
And is it really possible to connect your life purpose to the way you earn a living?
This week, Clay Collins is on the show to talk about how YOU can live your mission AND pay the bills.
So many guys make the sickening choice between following what they truly love and sticking with a job just to pay the bills. It’s a tragic “either/or” scenario. Clay Collins has made it his mission to teach men how to build their own business online so that they can care for their families and live a life in alignment with their deeper purpose.
Clay brings up a strong point that in our today’s culture where men lack a valid initiation into manhood, owning your own business will serve that purpose. We’ll also talk about the myth of “If I follow my passion the money will just come”, the danger of Job-ification and what you can do today to bring your life into alignment without having to live on the street.

About Clay Collins, Creator of Project Mojave
From Clay’s website:
I am a fulltime internet marketer from Minneapolis who does business in three niches.
I aim to live my life in a way that is fundamentally oriented towards maximum contribution and making the world a better place.
I strive to live in a manner that renders this statement true: everything I do is oriented towards helping people generously feed their families while following their deepest purposes.
I have a vision for a world where every person can be their own boss and secure – at the very minimum – an $80K+ income while working from home. I have a vision for a world where people do not have to choose between being their own masters and feeding their families. And I pursue this vision because I believe entrepreneurship is one of the most powerful enablers of self-improvement.
