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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
