What does Freedom mean to you?
For me, its the ability to make my own choices and steer the course of my own life. I’m not leaving my mental or financial well-being in someone’s else’s hands.
The biggest reason I left the corporate world was because I wanted the freedom to do what I want, with who I want, when I want. When you have a job – someone else is telling youwhat time you need to be at work and when you can leave, how long you get for lunch, how many vacation/sick days you get….etc. I don’t know about you – but I got tired of it after 20+ years! I never liked being told what to do!
So what about freedom….
For me the most important things are…
- I determine how much money I want to make
- Who I work with
- How much I work
- What I want to do
- The hours I work
- How much time I take off
Working in Corporate America you are told all of these things in your job! As an entrepreneur you determine these for yourself. If you’re doing a task you don’t like – delegate it to someone who likes to do it. If you’re working with someone you don’t like – don’t work with them anymore. If you want to make more money – it is in your power to do so – not someone else’s. You need a day off – take it – you don’t have to ask permission.
You are your own boss – celebrate it and live the life of your dreams!
