Fireside Chat - Bryan Campbell of Gear Patrol | Shifting the Gears on Freelance 3.28.17

Imagine taking a trip to Chile. Sounds amazing, right? Now imagine renting a BMW motorcycle and riding it up the Chilean coast. Sounds kickass, right? Now imagine...wait for it....this trip is for your job. Sounds like a scam, right?

Wrong! Just ask Bryan Campbell, lead writer at Gear Patrol, who we had the pleasure of hosting and interviewing last month in New York City at our second fireside chat tour event at WeWork Bryant Park.

10 Refreshing Career Tips for 2017

Now that we are one month into 2017, it is time to look back to those resolutions you may(or may not) have set one month ago. The brand new year is full of fresh starts, new beginnings, and original goals. Each time we find ourselves back in at the beginning of the year, it’s a good time to reassess the many important facets of our lives: health, relationships, education, career, finances, happiness, and the like.

That's It, We're Breaking the Conference Model

NicheCon has always been about two things. One, the stories. Two, bringing two communities together: those that love what they do and those who aspire to love what they do (find their niche). The conference is also about the unique career journey and practical advice from the handpicked roster of 25+ speakers from across the country to deliver their lessons learned.

They say you never get a second chance to make a first impression. This really resonated with me two days ago while The Niche Movement team faced a tough decision. 

Again, in a very timely blog post from someone I admire, respect and look up to, Seth Godin recently said “The single best way to maintain your reputation is to do things you're proud of.” 

That is why I am writing and posting this today, not only on behalf of myself but from everyone involved with NicheCon including our core team Mandi Stewart, Amy Corron, and Camille Sennett. 

What we are calling a “logistical snafu” we decided to push back NicheCon to March 10th-11th, 2017. 

Same location. Same themes. Better season (#cherryblossoms). Leveled-up experience. 

This has been the toughest decision I think I’ve made since I launched my journey as a full-time entrepreneur two years ago this month. 

In the last five days, I was losing sleep, over thinking, and stressing about so many things as it relates to our first conference. 

So let me explain what our logistical snafu’s are and why pushing back NicheCon five months is going to amplify what was already going to be an amazing experience for and something that everyone involved with The Niche Movement community could be proud of.
