Mindset is More Valuable Than Money
It’s a lesson that took me years to learn.
While working my way through college, I founded my first business, a technical services company. I grew the business over 18 years, becoming a leader in our niche and speaking at large industry conferences. Along the way, I pivoted from services to solutions which I marketed as products. I turned the business into an asset, and learned how to make it work for me. When the time was right, I sold it, but it was working so well I didn’t have to. I already had the freedom I always wanted.
Now I help other entrepreneurs do the same thing.
I’m passionate about this because entrepreneurs want freedom, yet we end up trapped by our business and don’t know why. That’s what happened to me.
I was never sure I was doing it “right.” I wondered if I even had the right business strategy. I was constantly worried about cash flow, I had problems with my staff, clients were unreasonable, the market was shifting. It was like the game whack-a-mole because every time I fixed one area, another one fell apart. Except this was no game, it was my life. I thought there must be something wrong with me. I couldn’t figure it out.
For many entrepreneurs, even when business is great, we’re stressed and exhausted. Often, the rest of our life is a disaster. Relationships fall apart. We feel terrible and look worse. We have no time for anything but work and we resent our business. We start dreaming about escape. That was me.
The relationship I had with my company was unhealthy. Instead of an asset, I had created a trap.
This was driven home during the financial crisis of 2008. I wasn’t prepared and I struggled. My business nearly went under and I had to temporarily move the office into my home. I needed to get the company back on track financially, but I knew that wasn’t the only problem. I wanted my LIFE back.
It was during this time that I learned the most important lesson of all: you create money, time, and freedom with your mind first.
Once I learned how to manage my mind and leverage my brain, the business scaled much faster. Instead of feeling frustrated and exhausted, I felt energized and fulfilled.
There is a way out. When you turn your business into an asset that works for you, your whole life will change for the better.
I turned every obstacle into a strategy and developed a 6-step process that turned my business into a valuable asset that other people wanted to buy.
I came out of that crisis stronger and clearer.
I sold the business in 2018, ensuring the process was smooth for both our staff and customers. The sale propelled the company forward with new leadership and energy while securing my financial future.
I can show you how to take back control of your business and create your future on purpose. So that you have the time, money and freedom you thought you would have when you became an entrepreneur in the first place.
Look for my new book, scheduled for release in September 2020.
