Want to know that ultimate freedom of all-time is?
On August 1st, 2012 I was able to walk into my boss’s office and quite my full-time job as a practicing attorney.
Over the past several years, I’ve really enjoyed working with my husband Rich in our business from home. I have loved living the laptop lifestyle where we could go to Europe for 3 weeks. Where I could sit on a rooftop in Florence, sipping on an amazing mai tai while working in our business.
It was amazing being able to travel home for 3 weeks at a time (anytime we wanted) to spend time with our family members.
Of course, having the income that comes along with owning your own business and being successful in that was great too.
But what I’ve discovered is what I think is the ultimate freedom.
That is time freedom.
I want to share with you when it was that I discovered that it was time freedom that meant the absolute most to me.
Just a couple months ago, my daughter, who was 4 months old at the time, had a swollen, red baby toe.
I looked at it and discovered that there was a hair wrapped around it!
I got the hair off but I wasn’t sure that I had gotten it all.
So, Rich rushed us to the emergency room.
As we were there, I was able to tend to the baby and make sure she was okay. Everything was fine.
When we got home, I looked at Rich and said, “All I want to do for the rest of the day is hold her.” He said, “Ok, just do it.”
It was in the moment that I realized that time-freedom was the most precious, precious thing that I’ve achieved by following my dreams and passions and building my own business and personal brand online.
I was able to be there with my little girl when she needed me most. I didn’t have to go and ask my boss for time off. I didn’t have to rush back to the office.
I know that the entrepreneurial journey is hard.
I know that there are lots of ups and downs.
I know that you’ve questioned, “Is it even worth it?”
I am here to tell you that it is absolutely worth it.
You should be going for your goals.
I want you to experience not only financial freedom but more importantly, the time freedom that comes with being your own boss and designing a life that you love.
