OK – Let’s talk NOT compromising…
There are a lot of people out there selling a lot of stuff and telling you a lot of things you MUST do:
- Build your website.
- Post on social media.
- Write emails.
- Create great graphics.
- Do video.
- Do webinars.
- Get on calls.
- Send DMs.
- Be active in the comments.
- and on and on and on!
There’s a time when we’re new and we just look for SOMEONE to tell us what to do because we simply don’t know.
The big issue that can come up is that if you follow someone else… you might not like the business you build.
You might want more freedom. Less things on the calendar. Less people demanding your time. If you don’t think of these things FROM THE START then you might build a successful business but your life might not look the way you want… and if that’s the case it’s going to be a big mess to untangle and recreate what you want.
I ALWAYS think of my lifestyle first.
I will NOT do things that compromise my free time and lifestyle.
To me it goes:
Life FIRST, then BUSINESS
If I were to attend webinars all week, in the evenings, that affects my family life.
If I were to book coaching calls all week, during the day, that affects my ability to have time-freedom and to jump up to be there for Ella or other family/friends when need-be.
If I were to be on social media posting and commenting and DM-ing that affects my mental health and anxiety levels.
The problem for many people, though, is they don’t KNOW they don’t HAVE TO do these things.
They think it’s “the way”. The way you HAVE TO do it or you can’t be successful.
I’m not here to tell you any way is THE WAY.
There are SO MANY WAYS… you literally have a pick your own adventure life when it comes to building a business online.
The adventure I pick, as you may know, is to Email for a Living. I have found it fits best for ME… will it fit for you? Maybe, maybe not. But if you want to check out my AWESOME new program then check it out here while registration is open and join me if you think it could be JUST the right thing that does not ever compromise your life vision:
I have to take my prompts for my girl Ella, too. She knows what she wants, always. There’s no thought in her mind that she can’t total build her own adventure. I LOVE that about her.
Kids are like that… nobody’s drilled so deep into their psyche to make them think there’s anything they can’t do. The world is wide open for opportunity!
