Author: Marianne Cantwell

I believe that one of the most important cultural trends taking place this very moment is the movement toward lifestyle composition. Increasing numbers of Americans, inspired by possibilities surfaced by books like "The 4-Hour Workweek" and blogs like the Art of Non-Conformity, are trading in traditional approaches to careers (or looking for new approaches after being laid off or downsized) and creating businesses doing work they love and are great at, which they can operate without punching a clock.
