How To Manage Your Own Side Hustle

Over the years I have had a great deal of fun on this blog. You can scroll through the multitude of posts to see that. But, I’m changing my course… I’ve decided to start giving back everything I have learned. Yes, this is a game-changer for those of you who know me. But it is time. It’s not all about me anymore. I want YOU to become the rock star of your own universe. To continue on with the rock star analogy, maybe right now you feel like you are just a “garage band”, or maybe, you ARE in a garage band and you fancy yourself and the band someday selling out 75,000 seat arenas all over the world. Either way, I want to help. I want to help nurture that inner Michael Jackson or that inner Elon Musk. I’ll push aside the velvet ropes and we can take that journey together.

So, here is what is going to happen. From now on Mr. Brick will use this time and space to be your on-line, make-a-change, go-to guru! That’s a lot of hyphens… but they are well earned. My pedigree is straight from the trenches of personal management. I was a Hollywood talent agent and manager for almost 25 years. I’ve consulted with thousands of individuals on personal branding, vision, growth and development for them and/or their company. I’ve also been fortunate enough to have consulted with many small businesses in and out of the entertainment industry to help them find their vision and identity. It’s what I do. Some self-help gurus like to call their method strategies to success or steps to success. I like to eat, I’m constantly thinking of food (like right now, what I wouldn’t do for a Jersey Mike’s sub.) So, I call my methods of action, RECIPES. If you have ever tried cooking (I did… once) and unless you follow the recipe EXACTLY, you’re not going to get the desired result. Same for your life, career and relationships.

I know many of you might hate your 9 – 5 gig, but you do it to pay the bills and put chili cheese fries on the table for you and your family. I get that. I was there. I will be writing and sharing my wisdom in an attempt to allow you to start living the life your DNA was wired for, not the life the Bossman says you should live.

You can come here and read posts to get valuable links and tidbits on how exactly to manage your life, career, and relationships. I’ll frequently post on how to manage the career or project of others and turn it into a lucrative side hustle for them. Helping others is really why we are all here. Do not buy into the world that says it’s only about you, so you need to grab all of the gusto while you can. Not true. You will find that your life is far more balanced with less stress when you are giving back to others than when you are taking. Try it. I dare you.

I’m always trying to learn new things. Hopefully you are too. Here are some great resources to help you manage your new journey:

Elon Musk The Life Lessons and Rules for Success

Caitlin Pyle’s Work at Home

Robert Igor’s The Ride of a Lifetime Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company

Online Start-Up for Dummies

We all start walking by taking baby steps until we mastered the concept of walking. This is the same approach you must take to mastering the management of a better life, career or relationship. #Babysteps

Have a great day. Yeah, that’ll be great. I’ll see you here tomorrow. And if you don’t come here tomorrow… don’t even think of coming back on Sunday!
