Is it hard to envision a life of success in both your business and your family?
Is a life lived on your terms really possible?
Do you crave control over:
- When you work?
- Where you work?
- How you work?
Are you seeking for more time with your family?
If you don’t want to choose between
- time with your family, or
- providing for your family
If you feel frustrated with the empty promises and overwhelming noise from online marketers who record videos on their phones in front of someone else’s Lamborghini…
What happens if you keep doing the same thing you’ve always done?
Most people who desire this life try to ignore their desire for freedom and flexibility and tell themselves that they will be free when they retire. The problem is, by the time they retire it’s too late. Their kids have grown up and they’ve missed their opportunity.
The sad truth is, by the time they are in their 60’s and 70’s; physical limitations, health issues, low energy and regrets hold people back from pursuing the adventures they’ve always longed for.
Even worse, sometimes the people they love the most have become strangers because so much time was spent grinding it out in their career. They missed the opportunity to develop, deep meaningful relationships with their spouse and kids.
Don’t let this happen to you.
In early 2016; Chris, Jamie and Michael were sitting in a beautiful hotel lobby in San Diego between sessions at Social Media Marketing World conference and something occurred to them. They were living remarkable lives.
How was it that we all had the blessing of our wives and kids to be at this conference in this beautiful place? We were growing our business, investing in friendships and living adventurously.
We all value our family so much that we intentionally built businesses that allowed us to spend a whole lot of time with them. Our relationships with our wives and kids took precedence over everything else. Because they feel valued, they are understanding and supportive of our dreams, even if it means we occasionally go on adventures without them.
It occurred to us that we have all built remarkable lives without sacrificing our most important relationships. We knew we had to get the message out.
