Brian Clark is the founder and CEO of Copyblogger Media and Tangible Digital. Launched in 2006, Coppyblogger evolved quickly from a one man website into an influential trade magazine for the content marketing industry. He is the host of the Unemployable podcast and website, providing advice and support for freelancers and entrepreneurs with the mission to ‘help tiny businesses create an outsized impact’. Brian also created the personal growth newsletter Further, a weekly publication navigating ‘the art of midlife reinvention’ addressing health, weath, and personal growth for those of us entering our 50’s and 60’s.


Brian joins me today to discuss the pivotal moment many of us will feel in our late 40’s when the desire to press the reset button appears to be at its strongest. He reveals the magic age we seem to be when we hit the bottom of our happiness ‘horseshoe,’ and why this is the point we should reevaluate what we need to do to achieve contentment in the second half of our lives. Brian shares his method when adopting new lifestyle habits, and why accepting self identity change is the key to success in your fitness goals. He also discusses the freedom building a freelance portfolio will give you in the next stage of your career, and why it isn't all about Mark Zuckerberg in the startup world.


“Take control of your destiny. Don’t let A.I or automation or your asshole boss do it for you” - Brian Clark
