A “lifestyle entrepreneur” is an entrepreneur who makes their living online. They don’t have a physical location or need one to operate. All they need is a laptop and connection to the Internet to manage their business.
Things are now not what we have been sold. We were told to be good boys and girls, to go to school, get good grades and go to college. And if we did those things we would get a good job, have money in our retirement accounts and it would all be okay. You know…
The kind of retirement plan where you work 40 hours a week until you’re 65 and you’ll live “happily” ever after.
But that’s not reality.
According to research. The majority of folks only have three to ten thousand dollars to their name when they retire. Statistics show most people don’t even have a thousand dollars in their bank account. And people who are going to college today are racking up record debt. Sixty, seventy, eighty, a hundred thousand dollars or more in debt. And when they graduate… they get a job that keeps them stuck and can barely pay the interest down on that debt. That’s if they get a job at all!
I was somebody who did okay in high school and I went on to college but never thought it was for me. So I limped through it like most people limp through life. And ever since I got out of college I’ve been self employed.
I’ve never had a 9-5 job and never will. WHY?
Because I understand the value of time more than most My father passed away when I was 3 years old and through most of my young adult life I felt sort of empty and lost. But that also molded me into who I am today. Never having that father figure to help guide me forced me to figure things out on my own. It contributed to me being self sufficient and I know it’s the main reason why I’m an entrepreneur, always have been, and always will be.
Twelve years ago I had my first child; my beautiful daughter and two years later my son. With these life changing blessings that entrepreneurial spirit was cemented into my existence. My new mission in life was to give my children the father I never had. Most importantly, I wanted to give them MY TIME.
This is MY WHY!
It’s about spending as much time as I want with them and whenever I want; when I want, with the people I love and care about the most. I’ll never miss a dance recital, a basketball practice or anything else, ever!
But in order to live that kind of lifestyle I had to own my own time, so I made the decision that I would never trade time for money and I learned how to become an entrepreneur.
I researched, read, listened to my heart and looked for something that truly resonated with me. That’s when I discovered internet marketing and real estate investing. Making the decision to live this kind of life was not always an easy one. Entrepreneurship is not easy, it’s a roller coaster ride and I had my share of dark days. In fact, over the course of the last decade or so, I’ve gone from completely broke, divorced, and bankrupt to living the life I always wanted for myself. Most of the time you have to get kicked in the teeth at least once so you can really see what you’re made of.
I’ve been blessed with amazing friends, mentors, and have had the opportunity to travel the country teaching hundreds of other want a be entrepreneurs how they can do the same. I own my time and have the flexibility to take an afternoon off on a Wednesday, or even a couple days off during the week to do things I’m passionate about like running and hiking. Frankly, I’m committed to taking 3 hours a day all to my self. I learned that from Jesse Itzler and it’s something you should implement in your life too.
Visualization and journaling are things I do regularly and they have played a pivotal role in my success.
I’m grateful to have met the woman of my dreams, travel, grow my network, start another business and more. I’m sharing all this with you not because I’m any smarter than you, better than, or because I’m think I’m better or smarter than anybody else. Because I’m not, far from it. I’m telling you all this because I want to help other people discover what’s truly possible for themselves. None of that matters anyway – not in today’s world it doesn’t. What really matters is that you understand the opportunity that is available to us all because of the internet and social media.
This is the greatest time to be alive in the history of the world.
There are more Wi-Fi and internet millionaires popping up right now than ever. They are working in coffee shops, in shorts and flip-flops and tank tops. It’s an underground world of people who are leveraging their laptops and smartphones, not just to scroll Facebook with…but to make money.
So here’s my question.
Would you like to do the same thing? Would you actually like to make money with your laptop or phone? Or do you want to sit around and waste time scrolling on Facebook looking at cat pictures?
Are you one of those people that wants to figure out how to use your laptop and smart phone to break free so you can make a few extra hundred dollars a month, a few extra thousands dollars part time, or a even a full time income making tens of thousands of dollars? If so, then I applaud and support you.
I’ve built a multi six figure a year real estate investing and marketing business around the lifestyle I want to live, instead of building my lifestyle around my business.
This idea of the “Lifestyle Entrepreneur”, was popularized by Tim Ferris in his book the Four Hour Work Week. It’s the type of entrepreneur I think most of us would love to be.
Traditional entrepreneurship spends a lot of time on the a-z of running a business, the nuts and bolts of it all. In fact, the core focus is building the business itself. This is asking a lot and often times you end up sacrificing the reason why you wanted to become an entrepreneur and business owner in the first place.
A lifestyle Entrepreneur starts with a much simpler concept and one that requires a different approach.
1. Freedom Of Location: The ability to work where you want and when you want.
2. Low Fixed Costs: The ability to start, grow, and scale your business with low overhead.
3. The flexibility of Time: The ability to manage the business with as little time invested as needed. It’s about being able to do what you want, when you want and to be able to do those things with the people you love and care about the most.
Again I’m not special, anyone can do this. I’m just passionate about living life on my own terms and want to encourage other people to do the same.
