Being a business owner is not the easiest path. When you build your business the right way, though, it becomes a really great path to be on.
What does freedom look like for a business owner?
When I think about freedom, if you’re working for someone, you’re not worried about it. It’s one thing to manage a budget or manage a part of something larger, but if you own a business, the entire thing rides on your shoulders. It’s your money, and your responsibility.
In terms of revenue, having to prove that you’re a better option than others - especially in real estate- is becoming increasingly difficult. Having to go out and hunt for what you’re going to eat every day is much more stressful than to sit back and be a much smaller part of the whole operation.
The passion for me is to speak truth in the landscape of reality for team leaders. I know what it’s like, and I know how hard it can be.
Think about your business today, and what you love about it and what you don’t. What do you wish you could do better? What works for you and what doesn’t seem to work for you?
