I’m Stephen Warley and I’d love to explain to your community why self-employment is the future of work and how life skills will get them ready!
I’m on a mission to prepare people for the future of work.
Work is fundamentally changing as we know it (and faster than most people think!) I’m sounding the alarm to warn people how to prepare for it.
I’ve worked for myself for the past 20 years. I believe self-employment is the future of work. I believe it can be for everyone and not just a select few.
You know what I’ve discovered is the most effective method for teaching people about business? Teach them first about the Life Skills That Matter before teaching hard business skills. If you want to work for yourself, you need to learn about yourself first. You need to understand how to manage yourself. After all, you are the first resource of your business! Self-employment also happens to be on the best ways to learn about yourself!
I’m a podcaster too!
I launched my second podcast in 2016 called Life Skills That Matter. I have interviewed over 300 guests who have created their own work.
I believe the best podcast interviews are those that make you feel like you are eavesdropping on a super interesting conversation that leaves listeners with actionable advice.
The Life Skills That Matter podcast is a daily podcast focused on sharing stories about people who are making the transition from employment to self-employment.
I’ll go out of my way to make sure I say stuff on your show I’ve never said on another podcast. Here’s my full career story.
Here’s a selection of interviews I’ve given:
WNYC-FM “How to Get a Job Part III: The Booming Gig Economy”
Topics I like discussing:
Not only do I want to help people become self-employed, I want to help them design business models based on their own values, needs, and abilities.
Why self-employment is the future of work.
How I generated $600,000 annually in my last business from only 50 potential clients working 20 hours a week.
How to find your purpose by systematically purging your entire life.
Why managing your energy, instead of just your time will make you more productive.
Why self-awareness is the most important life skill never taught to us.
Financial independence starts by assessing your spending and income generation habits.
I’ll help promote your podcast interview by:
Increase engagement with my interview by soliciting questions from your community and mine prior to our interview.
Sharing it with my Twitter followers, on LinkedIn and with my email subscribers.
Posting a wrap-up of the key points from our conversation on my website.
Here are some lifestyle experiments I’d love to share with your listeners:
How I turned every action during the first hour of my day into a habit to save myself from thinking about any of it!
How and why I did a media cleanse in 2011. (I didn’t find out about Osama bin Laden’s death for 48 hours because of it! Turns out I was the one living in a cave!)
Why I once considered myself a reluctant entrepreneur. I’ve worked for myself for the last 17 years, but it took the first 5 years to accept it.
Why I’ve eradicated almost all paper from my life. I don’t even have business cards, but still use toilet paper;)
My favorite color is brown. (Have you ever met someone who’s favorite color is brown? Now you have!)
How I lived in Seville, Spain for 4 months in 2010 and never told any of my clients. I also figured out how to live 2 days in one!
- Living out of a bag for the past year as a nomad since June 5, 2019 as I ran our business from the Amazon, Aruba, Turkey, Australia and Bali.
I have a professional microphone and mixer setup because I know how crucial amazing sound quality is for podcasts. My Skype name is LSTM Podcast
