If you’re new to my community, a warm welcome to you! I’m so happy you’ve decided to join us!
I love Mondays, don’t you? There’s so much possibility in the thought of a new day, and a new week, that I wake up feeling ready to dive in and create all sorts of goodies. And when the sun is shining that’s just a total bonus!
So, I finally got on the golf course to play 9 holes last night. We went to the Par 3 course and I’m quite proud of myself for the first outing. I actually hit a few really good shots. My lessons start next Sunday, and even though I’m nervous about meeting new people, I’m looking forward to learning and improving my game. I think it’s going to be a really good summer!
And that’s why this morning I woke up thinking not only about all the work I have to do, but also about how important it is to build a business that works for the lifestyle you want to create for yourself. So, in this morning’s read and for most of June we’re going to focus on how you can do that with low-content publishing.
Today’s Read: Building a Business That Supports Your Lifestyle
If you want to build a business that supports your lifestyle and practically runs itself, you’ve made the right choice to get involved with and participate in this challenge. There are essential factors that you will want to consider if you really want to build a business that gives you time freedom and supports your lifestyle – rather than treating your business as if it’s just another job that you have to work at 8 plus hours a day.
You really can build a business around your life that provides enough income to do the things you deem important. If you want to travel, you can build a flexible business that allows you to travel. If you want to focus on raising your children, you can also do that while also creating a company that supports that choice. You could even build a 40 hour a week job, if that’s what you really want.
There are a few things to consider as you get started:
Determine the Lifestyle You Want to Live
Take some time to explore what you really want out of life. Try to get out of your comfort zone so that you can truly imagine all the possibilities. There is no right or wrong answer, you get to create the lifestyle you want for yourself and your family.
What Do You Really Care About?
One way to craft a life that you love living is to focus on the things you are passionate about. What is something you really love? Who are the people you would like to help or serve? What skills do you already know to support that, and what skills are you willing to learn to support that idea?
Brainstorm Your Business Ideas
Combining your dream lifestyle with your passions will help you find the ideal business idea for you. If you already have a business idea, that’s okay, start with that and see where it leads.
Research Your Ideas
From your brainstorming, you may have come up with a few ideas. Make sure you research them. You need to know fundamentally what is required to produce the deliverables.
Create a Business Plan
Once you have your business idea, it will help you to create a business plan. Even a one-page plan can help you get organized. A business plan just needs to cover your plan for your business in every aspect of it. Include your value proposition, your solution, the competition, your target market, your sales and marketing plans, your budget and sales goals, milestones you plan to experience, team and resource summary, stakeholders, and any funding needs should all be covered in your plan. Even if no one else ever sees it, your plan will help you design each of your workdays.
Automate, Systemize, and Outsource
Once you know what has to be done to create the product or perform the service your business is marketing, you will need to set out automating, designing systems, and outsourcing as much as you can so that you are the manager of your business instead of the worker in your business.
The key to success is to be realistic about what you like doing, what you really can do, and what needs to be done to see your dream to fruition. Maybe at first, you will have to devote 20 plus hours a week doing all the work yourself, but eventually, if you automate, systemize, and outsource strategically, you will succeed in creating a business that allows you to live the lifestyle that you choose.
And now, here are all the deals ending on this last day of May…
