So last week I had all these questions running around and around my mind!!!! This week, I’ve come up with some answers…..yeah. Now I know this is not all business related, but I believe when you have your own business, it is as much a personal development journey as it is a business one – and when you’re a Business Coach like I am, you owe it to yourself and your clients, to be really honest about this stuff. In fact – if I was to pick one thing that was the most important thing you could ever do in life, it would be self honesty. Not self beating up because you’re crap at everything. Not self sabotage. Not self abuse. Not self harm – just honesty plain and simple. The good and the bad. From what you eat, to who you don’t really like, be 100% honest about it with yourself. And sometimes…….we share. So what have I come up with?? If I only had 2 months to live, I would be working as little as possible, trying every remedy on the planet and spending time with Elodie – but let’s not think about that one, it’s toooo depressing, and my heart aches for people that are truly in that situation. Believe me, I’m not making light of this situation by asking this question – it’s merely a discovery about what is truly important. Bottom line is – it’s my health and Elodie. Now if I won lotto, there are many aspects of my business that would stay and some would change. I would have a much bigger team, so I could just do the bits I truly truly truly love. Speaking, writing, events, high price coaching. I would also spend more time on product development for my side businesses (I am The Entrepreneurial Diva after all) which would increase my passive income considerably. I would build my retreat and seminar centre, and offer all sorts of programs for people, especially those that need financial assistance to start their own business. If we could live anywhere in the world, it would probably still be Sydney, but we would relocate for 2 months every Christmas, and experience life in another place. My perfect day / week / month / year looks a little like this.
