I want to share with you the moment I realized 99% of the world was doing things wrong, including myself. Working 9 to 5 with overtime from Monday to Friday, who came up with this? Why is everyone following this way of working? Why is it not ok to take Wednesday off just because you feel like it. Why can´t you work nights and sleep all day if you want to?
After several years as an entrepreneur, working 80 hours week I reread 4 hour work week by Tim Ferriss, and just realized I have done so many things wrong. Especially the Mexican fisherman story opened my eyes up once again. (If you have not read 4 hour workweek you can hear the fisher man story here: ) I made a choice and was gonna try to do the opposite of what I had been doing. Working 80 hours a week and busting my ass off took me almost nowhere considering the amount of work and hours that I put in.
May 1st 2016 I took the red pill. I made the decision of leaving all my companies and projects I was working on. My new goal was being a digital nomad. Working whenever and wherever I want. I have seen people succeed at this and why not try it. I will give myself 2 years of my life to make this happen, and worst case I will fail and just have to get a job. But I will make sure these 2 years of my life will be so much fun and worth the time that I will never regret my decision. During my time as an entrepreneur and building businesses I have learned a lot of how to build businesses. I have always met some incredible interesting people that basically could live off who they are just because they are experts in a certain field or they already have a following. The biggest problem with these people is that they do not build themselves up as a business. If you can take the elements of building a real business into people and building businesses out of people. I am sure you have heard of bloggers and experts online that make quite a lot of money. However, most of these bloggers are doing it wrong. Why, because they make decision based on the advertising request they get. During my 10 years as an entrepreneur I know that this is not how you build a sustainable business.
So this is what I am gonna dedicate the next 2 years of my life to. I am gonna handpick certain amount of people that I have faith in and build them up as a business. Not only am I gonna live of my expertise, but I will help many others do so as well. I will share the process with you guys and how I build these people up. My failures and my successes. I use the Lean methodology and will share the different experiments so you do not have to make the same mistakes as me if you also wish to build yourself up as a business.
One last thing….. GAME ON!
