Pioneer Nation Conference 2014 Recap (Caelan Huntress)

Last week I attended Pioneer Nation, a 3-day conference of solopreneurs and location independent entreproducers, organized by the same folks who put on the World Domination Summit.

Don't try to tame the dragon + my pioneer nation workshop (Shenee Howard)

This past weekend I was in Portland for Pioneer Nation. I flirted with writing a long in-depth recap of the event but I was having trouble putting it into words. Long story short: It was AWESOME. It was one of my first major speaking events and I think it went well.

Lessons on Overcoming Fear from Pioneer Nation (Plus: Behind the Scenes at the Workshops) by Breanne Dyck

"How uncomfortable are you, right now?" my friend Cory asked. "Pretty darn uncomfortable," I answered, honestly.

Here I was, at the inaugural Pioneer Nation - probably the most supportive environment one could imagine - and I was ...

Do You Suffer From Impostor Complex?

Fat Portland raindrops slapped the top of my umbrella as I stood in line waiting for the doors to open at the very first Pioneer Nation. I had been waiting for this in-person version of Chris Guillebeau's, The $100 Startup ever since I read the book last year and applied its advice to my coaching business.

Why It's Good To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone by Terry Starbucker

This past week, I presented a workshop at Chris Guillebeau's Pioneer Nation event here in Portland that was a little bit out of my comfort zone. It wasn't about leadership. It was about pricing products & services. And I gotta tell you, it was exhilarating. Scary as heck, but exhilarating.

Oregon, Ho! Pioneer Nation & Sickness on the Trail

A dear friend asked me a month ago, "You going to Pioneer Nation?" "Say what?" "Chris G's new conference..." Then she sent me the link: I'd been on the list for World Domination Summit tickets for two years but each time they came up for sale, I didn't have the spare funds.

7 Unconventional Things I Learned At Pioneer Nation (Saul of Hearts)

I just wrapped up my time at a two-day conference for entrepreneurs and small business owners called Pioneer Nation. It was run by the same team that puts on the World Domination Summit, an event for non-conformists which takes place in Portland each summer.
