ARE YOU A BUSINESS OWNER / ENTREPRENEUR?
DO YOU FIND YOURSELF WORKING LONG HOURS; NOT LIVING THE LIFE YOU PLANNED
DO YOU SPEND ENOUGH TIME WITH YOUR PARTNER / FAMILY / FRIENDS / HOBBIES
I see you shaking your head at the third point !!
You went into business for yourself to be in charge of your life, to earn great money, to provide for your loved ones. To create the lifestyle you want and lets' face it, YOU DESERVE IT! Am I right?
You didn't go into business to;
Vent stress out on your loved ones when you get home from work
stress so much you keep awake at night, worrying about too much work and not enough time
miss the important things in your life like your daughters first birthday or your own!
Not have quality time to be with friends / family
Not have time to play that round of golf with Tim or use that Gym membership you bought to reduce your stress levels
So what are you doing about it? What can you do? You've tried everything but the time in the office just will not relent.
Well, actually you haven't tried everything………
...what if I told you there is another way?
What if I told you that after many years of hurting and doing all the above I have formulated a way to have your cake and eat it?
WHAT IF I TOLD YOU I COULD GIVE YOU AN EIGHT DAY WEEK???????
And what if I GUARANTEE IT?
So there I was busy doing the things I had to do, what society expected of me. It was “head down and full steam ahead” building a very successful career, getting married and having a family.
I worked very hard – day and night, and became a world leader in my engineering field. I was earning good money and getting recognition for my work but that was all I was doing – working.
I went to work before my daughter woke and got home after bedtime – how I longed to read her a bedtime story. I first saw my daughter walk on a video! I was missing so much of my daughter growing up, it was ripping me apart inside so I did the only thing I knew; I worked harder.
All I wanted when I got home was a beer and to turn off – ignoring my wife, drinking and trying to remove the thoughts of work from my head – to no avail. My life was nothing more than a merry-go-round of work and sleep; work and sleep
My beliefs at that time were that the man had to be the bread earner, the provider, the keeper, and that I thought to make my family happy all they needed were materialistic things. WRONG!
The stress was becoming critical, even though I never saw it! I went to bed thinking of work, waking through the night thinking of work and up before the alarm sounded. My conversation with friends and family was…….yep you guessed it – work.
I walked around with my fists clenched and teeth gritted; I sweated profusely, I looked like death warmed up! – but I never knew anything was wrong until….
I found myself in rehab, suffering from depression and my marriage on the rocks.
However I was still working all hours god sent!! Wasn't I the hero – NOT!
Since then (over eight years ago) I have searched, researched, learnt, discovered, what I should have done and what I do today.
I have invested thousands of pounds, hours, energy to generate a simple system that can stop anyone else from falling into the same trap.
I have completed a honours Business Degree, conducted a coaching diploma, am a certified NLP practitioner, a member of a prominent business building mastermind group and studied the greats of spirituality and personal development.
Today I use a cacophony of techniques that enable you to increase you time efficiency and give you the choice to work, rest or play.
Today I have my own business; I spend as much or as little in it as I please and still have plenty of revenue. This business is to help you to NOT do as I did but to have the choices to live and enjoy every day.
I spend precious time (and good quality time) with my kids
I can be the man and lover my partner deserves and desires
I have little stress and I understand the value of BALANCE
I know and live my LIFE MISSION – which goes far beyond an 80hr working week
