How important is time freedom to you?
I don’t know about you but I started my business in 2000 because I wanted time freedom. I was trapped in a J.O.B. where I worked 10 – 12 hour days, often 7 days a week. But once my business took off, I somehow found myself right back in a time-trapped, energy-sucking J.O.B. in my business.
My ambition was always greater than my time availability and quite often, growth meant sacrificing time for what I truly craved…
…the freedom to travel as I desired.
…the ability to work as much (or as little) as I wanted.
…to exponentially grow my revenue but work less than 30 hours a week.
…and to make a significant impact in the world.
Do you have this kind of freedom in YOUR business right now?
If not, then chances are you have what I called Internal Growth Conflict.
Internal Growth Conflict is when the idea of making a greater impact and growing your business revenues feels in conflict with other life experiences that you value.
- You are worried that growing your business will mean you won’t be able to have Fridays off anymore.
- The idea of scaling your reach means you won’t have time to pick up your kids from school.
- When you imagine growing your business to the next level, all you can see is more work, more stress and more time in the business, and less time for what you value.
- In the past, a successful business means you don’t make time for your spouse. So you don’t grow it again.
- Deep down inside, you fear “being seen” so you’ve convinced yourself it is better to have a smaller, safer business.
What if the way you see growing your business is keeping you trapped, and it is time to expand your vision of what’s possible?
This is the work I love most with my VIP Expansion Clients. We shatter the paradigm that is keeping them stuck and create a business model that delivers what they want most…
- More money
- More time freedom
- More impact
- More alignment
My client Teal is a perfect example.
Teal has a very successful practice but she sells her time – so when she wants to make more money, she has to sell more of her time. Lately she’s been feeling a bit resentful about how little time she has for herself, for her hobbies and to spend freely with her children.
Teal would put off the growth steps we talked about in the Inner Circle. She wanted to grow, but the procrastination and lack of time always won. So finally, Teal and I did a VIP Day to recode her paradigm of what’s possible, and discovered that part of her Expansion Formula was to introduce a high ticket offer. By raising her rates, offering bigger ticket immersion programs, and setting boundaries around her available time for clients, Teal was ready to expand!
Often the Internal Growth Conflict is simply because you don’t yet know how to grow without sacrificing what’s most important.
Instead of growth feeling inspiring and fun, it feels overwhelming and limiting.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Change starts with a new decision.
In 2002, when I realized I had built myself a prison instead of a business that I loved, I made a new decision too.
Let’s do it together (and please feel free to share yours in the comments!)
My decision was “I have a 6 figure + business, doing what I love, in 30 hours a week, or less.”
Now it’s time to make YOUR new decision. And if you would benefit from my guidance to become the person that can pull that off, then let’s book a Fast Track Session to decide what path and support is best for you.
