Enjoy a Lifestyle… Entrepreneur
If you’re like me, you can agree that the reason you became an entrepreneur is because you love the lifestyle freedom, making our own schedule, having an income that’s not capped, and just not having a boss.
Many times though, we forget to live life. We forget to create our own time freedom and get stuck in the hustle. We forget to enjoy our relationships. Hell, a big perk to entrepreneurship is taking vacations, and we forget that too.
In this article, you will discover if you are truly living life by design or if you are forgetting to live a little more.
When is the last time you took a whole day to yourself with zero business?
Can you take a day to yourself without conducting any sort of business? My significant other and I have a ritual where Sundays are our day. Aside from a few exceptions, nothing gets in the way of that. We can reboot and just go out to enjoy the day and live life together.
I believe that regardless if you enjoy the day alone or with others, the main point is to get out there and enjoy your city a bit more and notice how much brighter life feels. I encourage us all to dedicate a day for true time freedom and just enjoy being able to take a day off while others are working.
When is the last time you went to the beach?
With San Diego’s beautiful weather, I love heading to the beach during the week. It’s a great way to kill multiple birds with one stone. You can get business calls done, writing completed, and even conduct meetings, all while enjoying the weather. This is especially helpful if you want to consider yourself a digital nomad.
Enjoy the weather, the lifestyle, and location freedom by doing business from the beach. I personally host meetings at the park or beach. It’s a great way to “do me” while still getting to know others on a more personal level during a walk.
When is the last time you took a true out-of-town vacation?
Have you hustled so hard in hopes of “earning” yourself a vacation? It’s sad to say that for the past five years I did not take a vacation. That is, until March 2018 when my girlfriend and I went on our first cruise. That’s when I realized that business could still be conducted literally from anywhere.
Many times we tell ourselves we will take that vacation after we make enough money, or after we get this many clients. However, many times that vacation never comes or comes way past due. I challenge you to live a life on your terms and force yourself to live a life by design.
All-in-all, while being an entrepreneur does come with a lot of responsibility, it also comes with big perks. Take time to enjoy life, time freedom, and go see the world. Remember, these days all you need is Wi-Fi and a laptop.
