“Why I Love Being a Free Agent”


I’ve wanted to read “Free Agent Nation” by Daniel Pink for some time now. Written in 2002, Pink talks about the shift in attitude towards the work pattern over the past century. He traveled across the country to interview “America’s new independent workers” for this book.


Having become a Free Agent last year, I can really relate to this book. In this blog post, I elaborate on what I’m truly enjoying about my new work lifestyle.


Are you ready to become a Free Agent?

Ever Heard of Backtweets?

It’s pretty easy to know when you’re mentioned on Twitter if the community uses your Twitter name (@contembusiness).

But what if your Twitter name isn’t used? How do you know when your website is being mentioned then?


Mike Sansone wrote a great blog post about how to use BackTweets to track these “mystery” tweets. You can even subscribe to the results in an RSS Feed – what a time-saver!
