    Creating Freedom & Flexibility In Your Business

    in Business

    One reason most solopreneurs start their own business is because they want freedom and flexibility.  I’m sure that you can relate to that. You created your business for the same reason…other than the fact that you want to make a living doing what you love. Doing so was much more appealing to you than working for someone else for your entire life and helping them take their business where they wanted to do, versus fulfilling your purpose. This sounds ideal and it can be, but one big challenge that solopreneurs face is that they’re doing everything themselves.  They start out that way and things tend to stay that way, which doesn’t allow much time for the fun and family, so they end up without the freedom and flexibility they were looking for when they started.


    This broadcast shares three things that you can do right now to begin to create that freedom and flexibility that you saw was possible when you created your business.
