Hi Everyone, I am writing to ask for your assistance as I am starting to write my new book furk. I would love it if you can provide any feedback on the below topics to assist me with case studies and research.
For me the word furk came about when I got sick of people saying I worked all the time like it was a bad thing! For me I dont work, I furk. Furk is the word FUn and woRK combined and it's time we blurred the lines a little... Which for me is about blurring the lines between work and play, clients and friends, colleagues and friends and not compartmentalising them as separate categories.
Furk comes down to an anagram of 4 things;
F - Family (creating a pseudo family, a tribe around you)
U - Be You (not putting on the professional work suit during work hours)
R - Reciprocity (giving your time, wisdom & advise)
K - Kare, Share and Be there (the ways we connect with others to build deep lifetime relationships with clients her are also friends)
For so long we have been sold on the idea that work takes effort, that we cant mix business with pleasure or do business with friends and the ‘work / life balance’ ideology is unattainable for many and it is based around the idea we need to do less work or finish it quickly to move onto the fun balanced part of our life.
Please email me at
with your responses to any or all of the following questions or any opinions you feel would be of value in my research process.
