The [Monday] Papers

"A decade ago, when Jen Sincero was in her 40s and totally broke - flailing about in 'Loserville,' as she puts it - she decided to change her life. And she actually followed through," the Tribune reports.

Now she's a successful author. How did she do it? She became a life coach!

*

How To Not Be A Loser Like Me.

*

Actually Sincero is building a brand based on advising people to be the badasses they purportedly really are. For example, Sincero turned her life around - along with the life coaching thing - by starting a business teaching companies how to write book proposals. How bad ass is that?!

*

"Sincero says the following six steps can help us unlock our own inner badassery."

I'll save you the click and tell you the six steps are variations of the same things you've heard your whole life, blah blah blah.

I have my own six steps to follow to unlock your badassery, and number one is to ignore the Sinceros the world. The other five you have to pay for.

*

Also, it's virtually impossible to be a corporate soldier and a badass - or be a badass motivational speaker. Let's not define badass down.

*

"If my broke ass can get rich, you can too."

In 2011 she sold most of her possessions and spent the next three years running her business from all corners of the globe, writing, speaking, coaching and encouraging people to live lives of unbridled awesomeness.

How to get rich? Start a business teaching other people how to get rich! I think I'm qualified! No. 1: Be a badass!

*

Real badassery will not get you rich, sorry. That's part of being a badass.

*

Note: Tony Robbins never had a "real" job outside of motivational speaker. He started out at 17 telling other people how to best live their lives without the benefit of any experience of his own at doing just that. So it goes!

Programming Note
I hope to return to politics this week; I just haven't had the strength, I feel like shit every day and I think I'm dying. So we'll see!

MUST-READ: Two Towns Forged An Unlikely Bond. Now, ICE Is Severing The Connection.

This, sadly, is my favorite piece of journalism so far this year. It illustrates so much about human identity, connection, cultural transmission, and the brutal, fascist times we live in.
