The Lifestyle of an Entrepreneur

Does an entrepreneur always have an amazing lifestyle?

The answer in my experience is no. It is possible  to…..depending on what type of business you build.

If you want to have an awesome lifestyle as an entrepreneur it is very important how you choose your business.

My husband and I have recently moved house and for me this is always a time of reflection and taking stock of my life in general.

I have been an offline entrepreneur for most of my life.

Coming online for me did not mean I had to adapt to changing from a job mentality as it is many years since I worked as an employee.

For me the online world was more about learning how it works online. I now know that and my mission is to help others shortcut their learning.

I have also worked with other entrepreneurs most of my life.

Here is a little of my story.

Entrepreneur

The CPA

I worked as a CPA specializing in taxation and helping small business owners reduce their taxation liability.

My clients were varied in business type and in their success.

The one thing they all had in common was they worked hard. Most had a dream of one day selling their business and then having a life.

There was never any discussion on having a great lifestyle while being an entrepreneur.  Of course this was before the internet.

The Financial Planner

My next career was as a financial planner.

My husband and I with another partner built a very successful business in Western Australia.

Here my clients were a mixture of entrepreneurs, professionals and employees.

We always started our relationship with our clients by completing a questionnaire. We found out their goals, their resources and came up with a plan for them to achieve what they wanted.

Again most of the clients I saw aspired to a different lifestyle than they were currently living.

Marketing Financial Products

My husband and I moved across Australia to build a new business while we still had the financial planning business.

I will write more about this business and the lessons from it in another article for now I mention it because of my lifestyle as an entrepreneur.

The business was very successful almost from the start.
BUT and a very big but our lifestyle was terrible.

I was on planes every week and away from my husband and daughter. I had made my cell phone number available to everyone we marketed to and it rang day and night.

I had no life.

The non-existence of a lifestyle for this entrepreneur

When this business finished I decided my life in the financial world was over.

I had set out during those varied years to help people find financial freedom.

I had learned that we aspire to be financially free so we can live the life we want to live.

So I set on a different path.

Entrepreneur

The Business Coach

I started working as a business coach.

My goal here was to help entrepreneurs leverage themselves out of the day to day running of the business to have a great lifestyle at the same time.

This part of my career was cut short when I ended up joining one of my clients in their business.

These were awesome days and I learned a lot about wealth creation that I had not learned in my business degree or time as a CPA and financial planner.

CEO of Events Company

The clients I joined ran a very successful events business providing business and wealth creation education.  One of the speaker/teachers we promoted was Robert Kiyosaki the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad.

Robert’s success was just taking off and my clients (who became my partners) went to live in the USA to promote Robert there. I was left to run the operation in Australia.

This is where I learned so much about other ways of doing things. I was back traveling a lot around Australia and New Zealand but seeing the transformations of lives in our events was so worth it.

I had been around personal development for most of my adult life but it was in this time I really knew how much I loved seeing other people step into their power.

I was back working with people wanting financial freedom.  They also were becoming the best version of themselves.

I got to work with the late Corey Rudl who at the time was around 30 years of age.  Corey was one of the early internet entrepreneurs becoming a millionaire in his twenties.  He was killed tragically in a car crash at age 34.

It was from Corey I saw a new way of living and a different life.  My dream was ignited.

Network Marketing and Internet Marketing – in pursuit of lifestyle as an entrepreneur.

Lifestyle

When that business was winding down I decided to give the online world a try.

I was totally technophobic and it took me a long time to get out of my own way. I also flipped around in what I was promoting. Not always because I jumped ship as many times the company did not stay around.

I knew no matter what I was going to make this work and find the right niche/home for me to grow a team of people who aspire to being an entrepreneur and an awesome lifestyle at the same time.

Enter Empower Network

For me this business is now my home.

It offers the ability for me to help people become financially free which has been a common objective in everything I have done.

And more than that it is a place where people can grow and become the best version of who they are.

I have learned that I am here to inspire others to live the life of their dreams.

iPAS 2

Recently iPAS 2 was launched which is a front end system to Empower Network.

It is the first of its kind. It is a digital business system very much like an online franchise even though it is not a franchise.

Absolute newbies are getting results with it.

Seasoned marketers are taking their business to a whole new level.

I am currently looking for entrepreneurs, or people that want to become entrepreneurs to join me.   If you are interested you can take a trial of the iPAS system for just $7. You can do that here and I will be here for you.

Please leave me your comments below and share this post. I am looking forward to what you have to say on this idea.

Make it a great day.

    Hi Sue,

    Hmmm….I think you know that I vibe with your current lifestyle 😉 I didn’t know about Cory. I think is passing was both tragic and an inspiration for so many. A guy who could accomplish so much so young helps me appreciate the idea of freeing yourself.

    You’ve been on board for a while now, doing the freeing lifestyle bit.

    We can make more money, but not time. We can add more constraints to our life, or we can break more bonds, to be more free. I have done silly things like working 18 hour days both as a security officer, and as an online entrepreneur and I feel thru all of my silliness, I learned freedom was my goal.

    I want to take my readers with me. Literally, if they don’t mind island hopping, and tiger taming, and all that plain Jane stuff I do lol! But more than anything, I vibe with your current lifestyle because it affords me the ability to do what I want, where I want to, when I want.

    I am blessed to have stumbled, bumbled and fumbled into this way of life, and to have mesmerized/tricked folks with loads of RB selfies, in tropical hot spots 😉

    I believe anybody can do this Sue, and you, and me, we can inspire new generations of folks who want to be free, to engineer a freeing lifestyle.

    Honest to goodness, I still appreciate money so much, but have experienced that when you work most of the time, to free yourself and your audience, that vehicles for freedom – including good old fashioned cash – will flow your way with less effort.

    Thanks Sue!

      Hi Ryan,

      I definitely get your vibe on lifestyle. I think you are the best at it.

      Corey was actually driving a brand new car around a speedway race track on a practice run. He was with a friend and I think it was a Porsche. The car hit the wall and they were both killed. It was tragic. He loved fast cars and most of what he did was out there. It was the loss of a great marketing brain. I take consolation when I hear people like Frank Kern give him credit for their start.

      Wow 18 hours as a security officer must have been grueling. But you did break free. So many do not. I am with you Ryan freedom is my driving factor these days.

      I am sure your readers love your following your lifestyle Ryan. And I am sure you are inspiring and teaching others there is another way. I am sure you have people thinking they too can do what you are doing. I too believe anyone can do it Ryan and yes I too want to inspire others to be able to do what they want when they want.

      Thanks for your awesome comment Ryan. I appreciate you.

    Hi Sue,

    Love your blog!

    I haven’t thought of Cory for a long time. I did his masters course man-years ago and used his strategies in my coaching business. I learnt so much from him and not sure why we loose such great teachers.

    My coaching business would not of grown the way that it did if I was not able to learn those all those years ago. Now is now different except Im 20 years older and I wish I had of kept going with the learning as the net has changed so much.

    There is one sure thing in life and that is that change will keep happening more and more and it seems to be getting faster. Thats all the more reason to choose a product or service that we love and get as much leverage into it as possible…. for the internet is the way to go.
    Im on that learning curve again and like you say…. we must choose the right business of us .

    Thanks Sue for a great blog

      Hi Di,

      Ah so you too did some training with Corey. I loved him. He was my first Pow Wow tour that I was in charge of. I then saw him quite a few times when I was back and forward to the States. Robert had a bunch of us beta testing the Cashflow online game. We were in teams of 3 and I was with him and Blair. Can you imagine? 🙂

      I was deviated when he was killed and cried for weeks on and off.

      I am so glad we are on this path now and you will get to use all those coaching skills again.

      Thanks for your comment here Di.

      Have a lovely weekend.

    Hi Sue,

    You’ve certainly had a series of mind blowing careers (with a ton of experiences to follow). In today’s world of specialization and ‘playing safe’, very few would match your records.

    When I came across your thoughts about being happy, comfortable and at the same time, living and working out one’s dreams, I felt amazed at the reality. Thinking back, this is my reality – though I never really gave it form in terms of words (in the excellent manner you just did).

    But Sue, not many entrepreneurs would understand you or flow along…many have been wired the wrong way for too long a time. Yet, for those that would get the gist, it’s a whole new world altogether.

    I so love this entry!

    Make the day great!

    Always,
    Terungwa

      Hi Terungwa,

      I smile as I read your first paragraph here and you are correct, most people would not relate to my career changes and not playing it safe. I think it is normal to live as I have but clearly it is not.

      It is so good to hear you are living and working your dreams and thank you for your kind words on how I articulate it.

      I know many entrepreneurs would not understand my message. In the town I live in there are businesses that still do not have websites.

      I am glad you liked my post Terungwa. I hope you are having a nice weekend.

      All the best,

      Sue

    Hey Sue,

    I’m so sorry I haven’t been buy here lately. With my product launch and all that I’ve had on my place it sounds like you’ve been quite busy too.

    So you moved? I guess I’ll hear more about that later right!

    You’ve had a very interesting life but I can understand getting into something that’s suppose to bring you financial independence but then not having the life to actually enjoy it. Just like when I came online I was on this computer almost as long as there were hours in the day. Okay, maybe not quite that many but this is all I did just trying to figure all of this out.

    When you love what you do though it’s never a chore and I’m so thrilled you’ve finally found your home as well. It sometimes takes us a while but I know you’re helping a lot of people now.

    Thank you for sharing this with us and I’ll see you later okay!

      Hi Adrienne,

      No need to apologize as I have not been visiting anyone or blogging much at all. I know you must have been very busy.

      Yes we moved and I had forgotten just how crazy it is especially when there are 2 of us working from home and all that goes with that.

      I know you are not alone in being on your computer so much when you first start online trying to figure it out. At least though we can do that from our own homes and do not have to waste time computing.

      It does take a while to find what we love and I know we have both done that.

      Yes see you very soon and looking forward to it.

      Sue

    A lifestyle entrepreneur is also location-independent. He is not tied down to a physical office, or a particular country. He choose to work from wherever he is , as long as he has access to the internet.

    1. Sue Price Post author

      Hi Cristina,

      You are spot on yes we are not tied to one location or physical office. A great benefit.

      Thanks for your comment and Happy New Year.

      Hi Sneha,

      I have had a few changes along the way in my careers. LOL 🙂 I am sure not many people have chosen this path and it has not always been smooth sailing. Yes the world does get faster and faster and there is no slowing down for sure. The internet has made so much possible and while most of it is good it is also a little stressful keeping up. Sadly many people in my age group have chosen not to. Freeing yourself and you audience is a great goal Sneha and I as you say the cash will follow.
      Have a wonderul day.

      Hi mb,

      Being an entrepreneur does give you more options however it is not for everyone. It is very rewarding for those who can do it.

      I did not work as an employee for long in my life and when I did I actually loved my jobs. 🙂

      Thanks for your comment and have a great day.

    Wow! You are one amazing woman Sue! This is the first time I’ve been to your blog and your article is inspiring. I myself am working out to be successful in my online business and be an entrepreneur myself. It’s kind of really stressful in a corporate job that you don’t have time for yourself. To financial freedom! 🙂

    1. Sue Price Post author

      Hi Tiffany, Thanks for finding my blog. I do not blog here anymore but the posts are still relevant. Corporate jobs can be stressful for sure. Great you are working on an online business too. If you want to check out my current blog you can find me here. http://www.freedomwithsue.com/

      Hi Carl,

      Thanks for finding my blog. It does depend on what type of business you have for sure but I have never met an entrepreneur who has not put in a lot of work at least in the beginning.

      My business life has been very interesting and in hindsight it is always easy to see how we could have done things differently.

      Thanks for your comment here and have a great week.

    I think that the life of an entrepreneur exciting, the lifestyle is not. Specially if an individual is trying be one with a 9-5 job.
    Thanks for this exciting article,

      Thank you Shekhar and it is not possible to live a 9-5 when you are starting out as an entrepreneur at least.

      Have a great day.
