I have a wonderful client who says, “Thank you! You’ve given me my life back!” practically every time I see him. He’s so happy, he referred one of his friends to me. That friend recently sent me this email:
I’d bet that most of can identify with the chaos he’s referring to. I’ve often said that a business should serve our lives, but our lives should NOT serve our businesses to the point that the business takes over. And this fellow has figured it out; two to three fewer hours per day means he now has 600 more hours a year to spend with his family!
So what have these two done to make such a remarkable difference in their lives? They envied other entrepreneurs who have well-balanced lives, and they both proactively sought out the assistance of a coach who could help them get there. One was so happy with the results in his own life, he referred the other to the same solution, which in this case was the system I teach, and I was honored to help them both develop outstanding leadership teams that shoulder more of the burden for them.
Get Your Life Back
Not having someone to help him figure these kinds of things out was part of what took my own father to an early grave forty years ago.
Because of him, I’ve dedicated my life to helping people escape from this all-too-common type of modern slavery. That’s why I’ll speak to any group of entrepreneurs, talk to any company that wants to have a better life for all: the entrepreneur, the senior leaders, in fact, all employees. I’ll tell them various ways to do it. It doesn’t have to be my way, although it is a good one.
The point is this: there are systems and coaches out there who can help you get your life back. Pick one and get started!
