With 22+ years as an entrepreneur, I’ve picked up a thing or two around how to do it successfully (and even more about how to do it unsuccessfully), so I thought I’d periodically share some of the stuff that’s bouncing around in my head, in the hope that it will offer some value to my fellow ‘treps.
Most of my focus these days is on creating companies and company structures that allow my companies to run mostly without me. This is so that I can focus my time on where I create the most value in my companies, create the most value and impact in the world, and get the most joy - while also freeing my time to spend more of it with my family and friends.
Truth be told, I’m not that interested in massively scaling my companies or pursuing hyper-growth. I did that for years; it’s stressful and ultimately not that fulfilling. I’m way more interested in learning, practicing and experimenting around how to create a meaningful, joyous and fulfilled life, and then designing my companies around that goal. In other words, starting with life design and goals. Then building businesses to fit within those design parameters, rather than focusing most of my energy on my businesses and then trying to squeeze some life out of whatever’s left.
With that in mind, I’m wondering if any of you would be interested in this as a theme for future posts?
If so, please comment ‘YES’ below, and if there’s anything in particular you’re interested in. Let me know.
