I’m sitting on the bus and I’m soaking wet… and while I have 20 minutes, I’m writing this post on my phone.
Life isn’t always glamorous or jet-setting as an entrepreneur, but you know what? It flipping beats sitting in a meeting, dealing with colleagues droning on about something you no longer care about.
It beats having to work late to finish that project and you think about your little ones snuggling up in bed without a goodnight kiss from Mummy.
WHY FLEXIBILITY IS MORE IMPORTANT TO ME THAN FREEDOM
There was a time when I loved travelling, and demanding projects to “get my teeth into” (hello trip to North Korea, or a stint in Iraq), but now my priorities have shifted this is no longer for me.
I love that I work around my son. I’m not just there for the milestones, I’m there for the magic little moments… when he said “Grampy is poorly. Grampy can’t walk, he has wheels” (yep, 9 adorable words) and I’m there for messy play and trips to the farm.
Being an entrepreneur isn’t perfect, but having the flexibility to choose your way of working if you’re an early bird, or a night owl, and still have time for friends and family.
Sometimes I wish that I had MORE TIME for my coaching business (my passion project), and I wasn’t juggling my family life, and running a property company, running a home… Blah blah blah…
But you know what? I FLIPPING LOVE THE FACT THAT I GET TO CHOOSE.
I can decide my day, and I can choose to get on a plane and take a trip to see friends, and STILL RUN MY BUSINESS!
I don’t have all the answers.
