Freedom..The Ultimate Goal In Your Home Based Business
Updated: May 8
It’s 5am on a windy Monday morning in the UK and I’m off on holiday again. Storm Denis is in full flow and it feels like it’s been an adventure just to make it this far!
The holiday is nothing too exotic, I’m catching 5 days of skiing in the Italian Alps but as I sit here and write this post I’m really aware of just how lucky my family and I really are.
My kids have grown up knowing what is like to travel, to speak other languages and experience other cultures. They know how important it is to see the world, collect experiences and see things from another perspective. They know what it is like to be the stranger and how important it is to ask for assistance when you need it as well as offering help where you can..
In many ways, I realise, travelling is very similar to building an online business..
You spot something special, something that you want to try, somewhere that you want to be, something that fires you up, that makes you want to take some action and push yourself out of your comfort zone. You do some research, you geek out, find out everything you can, you do the preparation to make sure the experience is worthwhile and everything that you want it to be and then you take action and go.
You know that the journey will be a lot smoother and more enjoyable if you spend some money in the right places and you also realise that if you put the effort into learning a few basic skills to help you on your way that your experience will far surpass your expectations.
You see life, at the end of the day, is all just a big adventure, a wild experience, a crazy journey and the investment that you put in, in terms of time and money often directly reflects the results that you get out.
If you approach things in the right way as you travel, you are going to get extra benefits, things you didn't necessarily anticipate. You will come across amazing people, people that inspire you, people that force you to learn and think and grow. You will see incredible sights and feel emotions that take you to amazing highs and growth triggering lows..
And ultimately you will find the freedom you crave.. time freedom, financial freedom, energy freedom...freedom of life and growth and movement.
The freedom to shape and mould and rework yourself, to be the type of person you want to be. The world really does become your oyster... like I said, I’m sat here right now feeling pretty grateful for my life. I’m exactly where I’m meant to be!
I have been very fortunate to build an online income over the past few years, if this is something you'd like to do too you can see here exactly how I make money from this blog.
