Episode 54: Business, being idle and the creative life with Tom Hodgkinson

In today's episode, we talk to bohemian businessman Tom Hodgkinson. In 2002 Tom quit the commercial world and retired to a farmhouse on the coast of North Devon to write books. His first book How to be Idle was a global best-seller and is one of our favorites. That success was followed by several others, including another of our favorites: Business for Bohemians.

In 2014 Tom returned to London to launch and develop the Idler Academy, both in the real world and online. In 2016, he and the Idler team relaunched the Idler as a magazine, raising £150,000 from 146 investors via the platform Crowdcube.

In this episode, we have a delightful conversation with Tom about his philosophy for life and work, and he shares practical tips for how we can live as bohemians - even if we keep our day jobs or don't intend to earn our living from writing.

Pep Talk 15: Divya Kohli on emotional turbulence and mindful pauses

These short pep talks are designed to give you a little boost of motivation or inspiration and help you along with your day and your project.

This pep talk is part of a series of talks designed to help you through the winter holidays or other busy season. We talk often about writing anyway, about stealing time to write, because if it matters, you'd make it happen, right? But holidays and celebrations can be a time of great pain for many people, and the truth is, in times of great emotional turbulence, sometimes the only thing you can do is rest and wait. My favorite part of our conversation with yoga instructor and writer Divya Kohli in episode 14 is her wise words about running into walls.

Pep Talk 14: Ayanna Gaines on making space for creativity

These short pep talks are designed to give you a little boost of motivation or inspiration and help you along with your day and your project.

This pep talk is part of a series of talks designed to help you through the winter holidays or other busy season. As margin-writers, fitting in our creative work around the demands of day jobs and caring responsibilities, it can be hard to make the time and energy to commit. In our conversation with librarian and poet Ayanna Gaines in episode 9 , she shares how she manages to stay in touch with her creative side, even when things are busy. Her tips are equally useful whether you're trying to carve out time at work, or in the middle of a busy family gathering.

Pep Talk 13: Manjula Martin and YOLO

These short pep talks are designed to give you a little boost of motivation or inspiration and help you along with your day and your project.

This pep talk is part of a series of talks designed to help you through the winter holidays or other busy season. This is a time of year -- and a time in history -- when things can feel very uncertain and risky, and it's easy to question even trying. This excerpt from our conversation with Manjula Martin in episode 48 is an antidote to feeling out of control.

Pep Talk 12: It was hard

These short pep talks are designed to give you a little boost of motivation or inspiration and help you along with your day and your project.

Today, instead of a regular episode, we're bringing you four pep talks designed to help you through the winter holidays or other busy season. This is a notoriously stressful time of year, whether you find it joyful on balance or not. Travel, end-of-year work push, family, kids off school -- there's a lot going on. Not to mention the inevitable retrospection, the adding up of all you've accomplished and not over the past year. Honestly, we both have a lot of things going on right now, too, and a regular episode was too much to take on. We hope these pep talks speak to you and whatever you need this season as much as they did for us.

Episode 53: Business book roundup

Today's episode is a mega-book report of sorts. We read a huge stack of personal finance, business, and writing-business books so you don't have to (though we do have a couple to recommend anyway). The episode covers getting a handle on personal finance and budgeting basics, spreadsheets, and how being realistic about your financial life is the best way to get over any fear. Whether you're thinking of quitting your day job or not, these books should be on your radar.
