Barbara J Winter is a California-based entrepreneur, writer and teacher who has spent the last twenty-five years pondering the question, “Why aren’t we all self-employed?” As a result, she has created a business that helps others discover the Joyfully Jobless life.

Barbara publishes Winning Ways newsletter, the longest-running self-employment publication of its kind. She’s the author of Making a Living Without a Job, which came out in a new edition late last year.

Barbara’s seminar of the same name, along with others including Establish Yourself as an Expert and How to Support Your Wanderlust, are conducted throughout the US, Canada and UK.

She also leads longer events that include Compelling Storytelling and Follow Through Camp to help small business owners bring creative thinking and fresh ideas into their work. She is convinced that small is still beautiful and loves working with one-person enterprises.

Barbara is an intrepid world traveler and curious lifelong learner. When she isn’t out exploring the world, she can be found blogging at, connecting with other entrepreneurs on Twitter or reading a really good book.
